Vintage Charm

I fell hard for this eclectic West Coast residence by Burnham Design (one of my favorites). Spotted recently in Luxe Magazine, there are so many amazing vintage accessories and creative details through out this 1930's home - each time I glance at it I find something new and amazing to love. Inspired by this style, I found a few great pieces to help re-create the charming look of these interiors. Scroll down to see all my picks and the rest of this fabulous house!



Fifteen Beautiful Blue and White Home Decor Accents

Apparently, I'm not just obsessed with blue and white porcelain  - these days I can't get enough of blue and white home decor in general! Here's a round up of a few of my faves:


Mix Those Metals

My good friend Julianne is in the early process of renovating her kitchen. Not only does this friend have fabulous taste, but she's also a professionally trained chef who really knows a thing or two about great kitchen design.  So I was so flattered when Julianne came to me for my opinion on a few of her ideas.

One design tip I stressed was that you could (and even should) consider mixing different metals in the kitchen.  Go bold with those brass and chrome decisions mixed together. She wasn't so sure about this advice at first (despite having seen my own mixed metal kitchen design in person...ahem.)  But, a picture really is worth a thousand words, so I took to Pinterest to make my point in a more visual manner.  That's when I came across the award winning amazing kitchens of Heidi Piron.  Her exuberant use of brass with chrome offers another chic example of this mixed metal look and how modern and fresh it looks in a kitchen. Go check her out and let me know if you love a mixed metal look in the kitchen as much as I do!


Home Tour: A Rustic California Oasis

My Domaine always has the prettiest homes, and this sun soaked California retreat is no exception. Pulled together beautifully by Irene Lovett of Designstile and captured perfectly by Sabra Lattos photography. I can't get enough of these wide planked wood floors, the Moroccan tiled fireplace, all the white, bright space and of course all the great little personal details throughout.



Vintage Chanel

The other day I met one of my very fashionable friends for lunch and was instantly reminded of a clever styling trick... a vintage Chanel brooch added to an otherwise plain outfit or jacket et voila! it instantly elevates the fashion factor! 

My friend was wearing hers on this really cute vest, and told me she often pins it to her denim jacket and tweed blazers as well. Of course, now I'm on the hunt for my very own brooch and uncovered a few more vintage classic Chanel gems along the way... (here's what I found)
