Thanksgiving Table Inspiration

IMG_4396

Greetings from Oregon! I have been in Portland for the last couple of days and I am so excited to be experiencing fall. As my plane was landing I was captivated by the beauty of the trees. Rich golds, reds and pinks dotted the landscape and it got me thinking about my Thanksgiving table. We are hosting this year and decorating is my favorite part. I have been collecting colorful leaves everywhere we go to scatter on the table. Here are some pics that are inspiring me right now. I am really into the gold accents and natural elements. What is inspiring you?

Wendy Iles at Ron Robinson

Last week I was introduced to the Ron Robinson Flagship Boutique in Santa Monica at their summer party celebrating hair guru Wendy Iles and her new line of hair products that are pure magic! It was my first time in the store and it was so fun. There is so much to see and everything is displayed beautifully. It is a feast for the eyes! Checkout my evening and if you are in the neighborhood I would highly recommend stopping in to see it for yourself!

The Ron Robinson Flagship Store in Santa Monica is full of the coolest books, clothing, home decor, art, beauty and grooming products and more!

Home Decor with Modani Furniture

Screen Shot 2015-01-14 at 8.20.30 PM

I was thrilled when I recently discovered  Modani Furniture because ever since I moved into a loft in 2009 I have been obsessed with modern furniture. I love creating collages and wanted to build a living room based around this black leather sectional from their extensive collection of gorgeous sofas. I was inspired by the vast array of chic, modern designs at Modani and one of my favorite interior designers Kelly Wearstler. I love black and white with grey and pops of color, especially hot pink. This whole room would fit into my loft perfectly. Maybe it’s time for a makeover!

You can shop Modani online as well as in stores in LA, Houston, Miami, Atlanta, Chicago, NY, Toronto and they are coming soon to Dallas, Washington DC and San Francisco! Happy Shopping!

A Fashion House in the Hollywood Hills

Hi! I hope you had an awesome, long weekend full of good food, family, friends and shopping! You are probably slowly pulling it together to get back into the swing of things so here is a little feast for the eyes. Sit back and enjoy this amazing fashion house set up in the Hollywood Hills. It is owned by the lovely Michelle of CLD and I had the pleasure of attending her housewarming party last month. The style, decor and vibe are so fabulous, by the end of the evening, I was ready to move in!
