Fall Decor Update

Some time in late September, I like to update the decor of my living room to reflect the fall season. These photos show a previous year update I did: 


Here's what I changed: 

I also added a couple of small objects like white pumpkins and fall candles to make it cozy and inviting. I'm always amazed at how a few simple swaps can significantly change the look and feel of a space. I'll be sharing this year's fall update on Instagram in the coming weeks.

How to Keep Peonies Fresh

How to Keep Peonies Fresh

Peonies are currently in season and I couldn't be happier because they are my absolute favorite flower.  I picked up these pictured above from Trader Joe's earlier this month. They are the abalone pearl variety which are a beautiful vibrant pink. Of course with beauties like this, I like to make sure I take care of them so they stay fresh as long as possible. Here are some quick tips on how to do so: 

  • Buy them as buds - they don't look as pretty initially but they're less likely to get damaged during the car ride home and will for sure last longer. These ones pictured above were tight buds when I picked them up at the store and they started opening up within an hour. By the next day, they were fully open. If you want to help them along, you can put them in warm water or a warm location. 
  • Keep them away from direct sunlight - I made the mistake of putting an arrangement right next to a window that received a lot of direct sun, and came back to find out they had drastically lost their color and some petals had started falling off. 
  • Store them in the fridge at night -  If you have the space, put them in your fridge. It will prolong their life. 
  • Cut the stems and replace the water every day or every other day - Use warm water if you want them to open up more, and cold water if they're already open.  Cut the stems at a diagonal for maximum water absorption.

La Fiorentina Bark

Sadly the Bark (brown) colorway of the beloved David Hicks La Fiorentina geometric print has been discontinued. If you've been eyeing this pillow, now's your time to get it! We still have some remaining, but once they're gone, they're gone. Photos below of a chic bedroom designed by one of our customers, Paloma Contreras.

As Seen in Style At Home Magazine

Recently we had the honor of seeing our pillows featured in the print magazine Style at Home, as part of a story showcasing the chic home of interior designer Sarah Walker. She had transformed the living room and other spaces within the main floor as part of the One Room Challenge. Below is a look:

I love how Sarah combined various patterns without making the space feel overwhelming by differing the scale and sticking to a consistent color palette.

A Coastal Prep Pacific Palisades Home

Studio McGee is a design team whose projects always wow me. Their recent design of this gorgeous Pacific Palisades home was no exception. It reflects their signature bright clean aesthetic, and has a coastal prep east coast meets west coast vibe. I love the mainly blue and white palette, the attention to detail throughout, and of course their use of the classic Leopard Velvet pillows in the living room to add a pop of pattern.
