A creative way to house a wardrobe, this DIY cabana closet was made by repurposing a bakers rack and sewing a custom cover using inexpensive striped fabric. Looks pretty great don’t you think?
From Samantha and Lindsey’s bright beach cottage. See the rest of it here.
Loving how white paired with a bit of soft turqoise helps make these spaces look so fresh.
Hope you have a great start to your week!
Getting things ready to open up my little shop next week (!!) so will be working a few hours Saturday, but Sunday will most definitely involve a bit of weekend lounging…
Hope you fit in a bit of relaxation as well. See you Monday!
If I was in the market for a new sofa, I’d probably look for one like this…
…an amply proportioned sofa with a deep seat, rolled arm, and tight scalloped back. Doesn’t it look comfy?
As I mentioned in my Dream Home post, Sofia Coppola’s blue one (top two images) is the Jules sofa by George Smith (as is probably some of the other sofas pictured as well). Unfortunately it’s quite pricey (I believe around $12K). The Cameron sofa from Room and Board (which can be upholstered in any fabric they have available) is a good option for getting the look for less. I’d probably replace the legs with vintagey ones to get closer to the look. If you happen to know of any other sources for getting a similar style piece at an affordable price please do share!

A great way to add visual height to a room is to maximize vertical wall space when arranging framed artwork:

Today participating in the How I Organize series, is the beautiful and talented Melissa Warner of the design firm Massucco Warner Miller. She gives us a peek inside her team’s beautifully organized LA studio:
When we moved into our new West Hollywood design studio, we wanted to restructure the way we organized our fabric library. Although we’d never compile an entire room from our fabric library, we do love to have our favorite fabrics and wallpapers at our fingertips, to use to add that final touch on a room scheme, or sometimes even inspire an entire room’s palette. The fabrics are organized by color and then type (geometric, floral, stripe, solid/linen/velvet/etc.) and with the clear doors it’s very user friendly and easy to find exactly what you’re looking for!
Lovin’ this great little styling idea of hanging a mirror behind each nighstand:
One week from today (on Sept. 13) the highly anticipated Missoni for Target line will be available. I personally am excited for all the colorful home accessories. Love that they’ve included stylish storage pieces in the mix Can’t wait to see them in person!
