Monochromatic Monday :: Coast to Coast

It’s that time of year again…when temperatures start to climb just enough to spur dreams of summer sunshine, and a little sand in between your toes while cradling a piña colada (or two). So, as I ditch my winter coats and recover my favorite pair of flip-flops from the (very) bottom of my closet, I can’t… read more


Monochromatic Monday :: Pot of Gold

While I’ve got to admit that I’m not the world’s biggest St. Patty’s Day fan, I am completely, 100% onboard with any excuse to use liberal doses of the color green… especially when paired with gold for (in my opinion) the world’s prettiest color combination. An emerald and gold palette inspired our new studio’s design… read more


Monochromatic Monday :: Bittersweet Grapefruit

Nature gives us a bounty of citrus fruits at this time of year for a reason: there’s nothing more invigorating to winter palates than biting into a Clementine slice or squeezing a bright burst of lemon juice over grilled fish or meat. Lately, I’ve felt particularly energized by the sweet-tart hit of grapefruit as an… read more


Monochromatic Monday :: Eat Your Greens

It’s the first Monday of the new year — that’s something to celebrate, now isn’t it? I find myself craving clean, energy-giving food, making extra time to connect with the people I love and actually embracing a full to-do list instead of wishing for more downtime. Guess that’s what the long holiday break is supposed… read more


Monochromatic Monday :: A Touch of Shimmer

Good Monday morning… and happy holiday week! If you’re in the club that’s still powering up at the office this morning, take solace in the fact that the holiday break is seriously allllmost here. And if you’re still not feelin’ it, take a few minutes to breathe in all the evergreen and luminosity that’s been popping up… read more


Monochromatic Monday :: Rose & Indigo

On Saturday night, we had a casual little dinner party, and as my friend Lauren scanned our almost-entirely beige, cream and white living room, she posed the question: when you want to move beyond your beloved neutrals, what’s your go-to splash of color? I thought about it for a second, and realized that although I love touches… read more


Monochromatic Monday :: A Clean Slate

If you listen closely, you can almost hear the first period bell ringing. Believe me, I was just as thrilled as the next 18-year-old girl when graduation day arrived, but now that it’s been ten years since I’ve set foot in those locker-lined hallways, I’ve gotta admit that I look back on it all with rose-tinged… read more


Monochromatic Monday :: Dinner in the Vineyard

Ever since we announced the Style Your Summer contest and asked all of you to dream up your perfect summer party, I’ve suddenly been asking myself the same question: out of all the beautiful color palettes and creative concepts out there, what type of party would I choose as my very favorite? I think I’ve finally… read more


Monochromatic Monday :: Watermelon & Tomato

Today’s inspiration board is a total celebration of summer’s bounty: the bumper crops of watermelon at farmer’s market, piles of juicy tomatoes that I can’t seem to use up fast enough and peaches that are so juicy they drip down your face like melty popsicles. Last week, we shot a chapter about “setting the summertime… read more


Monochromatic Monday :: Lilacs & Clementines

Several of y’all have so sweetly been asking about how my book project’s been coming along, so thought I’d share a quick update this morning. After my first solid 6 weeks of writing, brainstorming and styling shoots, it’s already shaping up to be one of the most creatively stimulating and artistically fulfilling projects I’ve ever… read more
