Our New Store!

Our New Store!

Hi you… I have been MIA because… I opened ANOTHER store!  It came somewhat as a surprise, since we just had a pop-up shop in March and weren’t planning on another until, at the earliest, fall. But the location of this new space could not be more ideal in all ways and just dreamy, so when the opportunity presented itself, I leapt with both feet, knowing the net will appear. I couldn’t post anything until a few days ago due to building permits still pending, but now everything is in place, so I’m able to share this incredible news with you all. This is a pop-up shop too, but it’s longer than we’ve done before – at least a month, but depending on a few things, it could possibly be our first permanent store!

Blue & White: Summer 2018

Blue & White: Summer 2018

Hi my loves… how are you? It’s been quite a month. The good news being that my son graduated from college this past week and is coming back to the Bay Area WITH. A. JOB.! I’m so super excited to have him back in California, proud that his hard work and success in business school paid off, but also, like all of my kids’ milestones, I’m a little weepy about the significance of next steps and new chapters…

On the opposite end of things, my grandfather passed away a couple of weeks ago… I was so fortunate to have flown back to spend time with them a week prior. I know we hear this all the time, but honestly, it’s so true and worth repeating —  how quickly something can happen. So cherish the ones you love.

Like no other color, blue has an ability to resonate and stir emotion. It represents the sky and sea, and depending on the shade, blue is the color of fresh air, dusk, strength, spirit, soulfulness, sadness, joy and tranquility. I suppose that’s probably the reason this is the third post (the others are here and here) I’ve done on that color!

With summer coming, I’m drawn (in a huge way!) to the classic blue and white combination. In seasons past, a cream + black palette has been dominant, and while I love that too, I’m craving a fresh, bright, beachy vibe right about now. Here’s what I am loving. I hope you do too 🙂

beach cottage with white shiplap

The stripes and mixing of blues is what I like most about this space. The less match-y and careful, the better. Also worth noting, vertical (vs horizontal) panelling and on the ceiling too – cool and different – especially pared with the pale floors. This all looks to be original, but the same effect can be replicated.

modern white bedroom with antiques

I love the antique wood accents in this modern space and pops of color hung directly on the walls. Why not display jewelry like that?! I think I have a new design obsession forming…

white painted stairs with blue stripes down the center

High gloss porch paint. Stripes like vintage grain sack. No more words needed.

Side note* I painted the floors white in our house when we first moved in. They were hardwood, but stained a terrible color and a mixture of plank widths. They turned out really well and withstood kids, dogs and everything else for years. Moral of that story – if you don’t like your floors and they aren’t worth refinishing (or too much $) – paint them white!

summer bedding in neutrals

This bedding is all about texture. Worn-in and unironed linen, smooth cotton print pillow case anchored by a knit throw. The faded subtlety of these colors and textures just says summer to me.

baskets made out of vintage blue striped fabric

I love to create storage in places and with things that are not always the intended purpose. Wish I knew how to find these amazing containers?! If anyone knows, let us know in the comments! I bet they have flip-flops inside.

I will have an aperol spritz, please.

all white modern farmhouse bathroom with blue patterned floor tile

Again, another example of the winning combo of an all white room + a natural wood element + blue. The first thought most of us have (me included) is, “will I get tired of this pattern and wish I had gone with a more neutral tile?” I think as long as the tile is in the blue family (or black/dark gray) you (me included) will never tire of this. Balanced out with all white, this indigo pattern is playful, modern and fresh yet classic.

Just one more example of the above elements working beautifully together.

boho mid-century living room in neutrals and blues

What I love about this space is the well-edited use of furniture and accessories to create a perfect boho/mid-century vibe. This is so on point with what is topping the interior design aesthetic list right now.

Have a great week!
