Bring It Home :: Beachy Keen

My body may be at my work desk today, but my mind is on a beach somewhere soaking up sun and saltwater. Chalk it up to the 87 degree weather we’ve been having in Austin and the wanderlust this moodboard gave me. This living room is adorned with found shells and gives me the laid back… read more


Bring It Home :: Hint of Mint

Sayonara polar vortex…it’s officially spring! This kitchen really captures the best of what spring has to offer. Its window backsplash lets in bright light and a view of the outdoors, and the woven basket lights hint at beach days and the promise of summer. I’m looking forward to cooking with a different lineup of fruits… read more

If you haven’t yet heard of the rising star New York designer Sasha Bikoff, prepare to soon be well-acquainted with her fresh and fun approach to design. The 26-year-old (who grew up in Manhattan) will launch her design website next month. Although I haven’t seen a great deal of her work yet, this sneak peek of her… read more


Bring it Home :: Elizabeth Street Cafe

We really are spoiled with choices here in Austin. When I was searching for inspiration for today’s Bring it Home post it was hard to settle on just one Austin interior to feature. There was the effortlessly cool styling of hotels like the St. Cecilia and San Jose, gorgeous restaurants like Josephine House and Hillside Farmacy,… read more


Bring it Home :: A Home Full of Stories

Unhung art leaning on the walls, stacks of books with dog-eared pages—to me, these details are what make a home look lived in and full of stories (literally). I love to imagine living in an all-white apartment with not a thing out of place (ok, I want to be Olivia Pope), but let’s get real.… read more


Bring it Home:: If Your House Were A Person

Do you ever watch design shows in which the designer’s first task is to identify the homeowner’s personal taste? The wife will proclaim “I love bold reds and leopard” and the husband says “I can only live with neutrals” and chaos ensues from there. Often people use colors, places, or time periods to describe their… read more


Bring It Home :: Being Open to Change

Happy New Year lovely readers! In addition to my resolution to try the 5-Piece French Wardrobe this year, I’ve been thinking about making some changes in my home. When I moved into my apartment I gave my best guess as to what layout would work best for me, and it can be very easy to… read more


Bring It Home :: Christmas Brunch

Christmas mornings can sometimes feel a little… frenzied. So as I brace myself for the chaos of the holiday with young children, the laid back vibe of this space is really speaking to me. With its cozy sheepskins, unfussy airplant centerpiece and a stack of logs ready to go, this is my ideal setting for… read more


Bring It Home :: Technicolor Dream Couch

Let me first say what we’re all thinking: that COUCH! It’s as if it came to me in a dream. In case you’re wondering how such a couch came to be (I know I was), Jessica Helgerson Interior Design had it upholstered in 18 different Peruvian blankets. If you don’t happen to have 18 Peruvian blankets… read more
