I’m so excited to share my latest project with you — a pilates studio in Studio City, California. This was such a fun project to design, and I couldn’t have asked for a better client.

Before

My goal for the studio was to create a space that felt light and airy, yet completely relaxed. The owner, Angie, is so friendly and personable that I really wanted the space to reflect her personality. I designed a seating area that would be comfortable, yet understated, so not to take away from the real stars — the pilates equipment.

I added a mix of both faux and real plants.

THE LOCKER ROOM

The exterior was fairly simple — paint, a new awning, grasses that would move in the wind and some privacy for the clients.

Happy Wednesday!

I’m a new believer in faux flower arrangements. After visiting one of my favorite stores in Mallorca last week, I came away completely inspired. Two days after I arrived back home I was in my local craft store picking out some for myself. The vibrant colors are perfect for the spring. Below, are some of my favorite examples.

Some of my favorite places to purchase faux flowers are Hobby Lobby, Michaels, Pottery Barn and Rolling Greens (here in Los Angeles). My advice would be to go with a larger arrangement — it adds more color and drama. Have fun!

Although I love the beautiful dainty pendant for a kitchen island, I was reminded by this image, how an oversized pendant can take a normal space and turn it into an extraordinary space — love it!

Feel like your kitchen needs an update but don’t want to take on a major remodel? Today, I’m sharing 5 easy ways to update your kitchen to give it a whole new look without the headache of a renovation.

1 ADD A NEW RUG

Adding a runner or area rug (depending on the size of your kitchen) can add gorgeous color and texture to your kitchen.

2. CHANGE OUT YOUR HARDWARE

SCHOOL HOUSE

I like to think of cabinet hardware as the jewels of your kitchen. Match the hardware to the finish of your light fixture or use it as a bold accent — whatever the case, it is an easy way to update your kitchen.

3. ADD NEW STOOLS

Replacing your stools is an easy and very effective way to add an accent color to your kitchen. They can easily add warmth to an all white kitchen, as in the photo above, or if you want more texture in your kitchen try a natural fiber stool.

4.  REPLACE LIGHTING

 Brit + Co

Replacing (or adding pendants) is a great way to not only update your kitchen but add drama as well. I love these oversized pendants above.

 

5. PAINT, PAINT, PAINT

Whether you just paint your island or your entire kitchen, a new paint color can completely change the feel of your kitchen + make the biggest impact.

Happy Monday!
