Just Some Thoughts: Earth Day

April 22, 2018

I LOVE CALIFORNIA. I thiiiiink you already knew that… but I love it so much because it’s the most beautiful place in the world and it’s home. I mean, have ya seeeen the beaches?

But guess what you guys… our planet is LITERALLY being destroyed. It’s Earth Day on Sunday and I think it’s sooooo important that we all do our small part to SAVE the planet. I want my sweet Gwynnie to grow up and see and live with all the beautiful things that exist today.

To say it’s been hectic lately is the understatement of the CENTURY. If you’ve been following along this month, you already know that 1) we opened our second . Then 2) I thought it would be a GREAT idea to move my entire family into a new house by the end of this month so we can begin construction on our NEW house.

SO, I’ve shared this story before, but in case ya missed it, here’s the story of how we found our adoooorable Pacific Palisades location.

I had to reschedule a meeting (fate sign #1). Mike and I already had a meeting in Brentwood that day, but we figured we could have our meeting first and then I could meet my client in the Palisades afterwards. We were in one car so Mike would just drop me off and walk around the Palisades Village while I had my meeting.

HEY, you guys, you know how you always see me adding in custom pieces in my designs? And you know how you always ask me where you can buy the stuff I use in my projects?? And you know how I am a complete jerk most of the time and don’t always get to share where everything is from??

WELL, I am a jerk no more, because I have been working hard designing more pieces to add to my own line of furniture and guys,

YAY!! It’s finally here IT’S FINALLY HERE!!!!!

This project was a long one and a good one if you ask me

We were first ed in 2015 to help these clients build this house from the ground up. They had some preliminary designs from the architect and wanted to create a “Scandinavian Modern Cabin” vibe…despite being smack in the middle of Venice California. We were lucky enough to work with an awesome Contractor ( ) as well as work with some pretty cool clients.
