Houzz to see my idea book on decor meets fashion, and let me know what you think!
Kristen Buckingham. A fabulous designer, Kristen also runs an equally fabulous shop in L.A.. I was daydreaming about California sunshine all weekend long, not to mention owning an actual brick and mortar shop even half as hip as Kristen's!
Erica of Moth Design, zhushes! I'm obsessed with the way she took our gold wishbone, and framed it! How genius is that? But not surprising...have you seen Erica's closet? She framed a bunch of shopping bags and hung them up as art! Thanks for the fabulous ideas and inspiration Erica! If you're not already familiar with Erica and her fab blog, check out Moth Design!
Send in your photos and show us how you zhush!
The Glow? Started by editor Violet Gaynor and photog Kelly Stuart, these two fashion insiders explore the homes and family lives of some of the most stylish moms in the fashion industry. If you like the voyeuristic peaks provided over at The Coveteur and The Selby, then check out The Glow, and see how these chic ladies live.
Amelia T. Handegan, and seen in last month's Architectural Digest. Located in Folly Beach, South Carolina...the
nerdy geek, English Major in me, can't resist the irony here. One of the definitions for "folly" found in Webster's Dictionary is "a costly ornamental building with no practical purpose," hardly how I would describe this perfect beach retreat. Quite the opposite, actually.
Lauren Muse knows details well, she helped me with the design of my own home. And, while this is not my house here, you can see more of Lauren's work (including my house) on her site. Be sure to also check out Lauren's One Kings Lane sale, going on now, (there's also a small peak at my living room!)
This summer, I worked on improving the store. In addition to finding a lot of great new items (which will be loaded on to the site soon) I also had a "look book" shot, as a way of allowing customers to visualize how pieces work together, see the scale and also as a source of inspiration. I'm really thrilled with the photos (taken by Jacob Kriese) and styled by "The Decorista"Ashlina Kaposta...not to mention the fun we had the day these were shot. Ashlina is not only talented, but a true joy to work with, she really "gets it". Some of these photos have been featured on other blogs, which I'm more than thrilled about. I'll be sure to let you know when it goes live. Hope you like them!
I've had so much support from the blog world, it's truly amazing! Thanks so much to these ladies who have given zhush such great buzz lately! I really appreciate it!
