We have some fun invites coming up on the calendar - a small cocktail party, a girls weekend at the beach and a family BBQ, just to name a few. I always like to bring along a little something special to show our gratitude (and get invited back:) Here's a round up of  some of my favorite summer hostess gifts.

Blogger Home Tours: Ivory Lane

It was the Kelly Wearstler wallpapered cabinets in this beautiful kitchen that first caught my eye over on Pinterest. That one interesting detail made me want to see more - turns out this fabulous space belongs to fashion blogger, Emily Jackson of the blog, Ivory Lane.  The stunning stove hood, wainscot ceiling and gorgeous light fixtures are some of the other design choices that I just can't get enough of.


Home Tour: Playfully Chic In Playa Vista, CA

The abundance of natural light in this freshly renovated family home is amazing. Boho pieces along with clean white surfaces and warm wood floors makes for a chic and welcoming mix. Designed by Natalie Meyers, photos by Amy Bartlam via Domino.... I think this is my new favorite home!

Finishing My Daughter's Room

Despite the fact that I have some amazing professional photos (top by Nicole Cohen and below by Leslie Unruh for One Kings Lane) of my younger daughter's room, it's still far from finished. For the past few weeks I've been frantically searching for the right pieces to pull this room together. She's away in camp for a few more days, and I'm hoping to surprise her with a room that looks a lot more complete (and functional-she needs a dresser badly) than when she left.

I'm close to ordering her a white dresser. I'm considering the one below and also this taller, narrower option from West Elm.  I've got a good sense of what she likes and dislikes (I'm honoring her request to have only plain white blinds on her windows) and with that in mind I've pulled together this little mood board to motivate myself (and in the event it doesn't get done in show my daughter when she gets home).
