Remember, actions speak louder than words ever will.
I’m a sucker for anything that is crisp white or mid-century. So it comes as no surprise that I was instantly obsessed with writer Kelly Oxford’s Palm Springs residence. Add in some natural fiber rugs, pops of emerald green, and some plant life, and I’m all in.
Homepolish Designer Orlando Soria (aka Emily Henderson’s old right hand man) was the brainchild behind this lovely project. Truly, he is a design rock star and I am always excited to see his work because you never know what his creative next move might be. He’s fearless when it comes to design, a trait he definitely shares with Emily. And if you follow him on Instagram you know he’s also pretty hilarious.
Loving this shot and contrast between the soft neutrals and bold emerald.
Beautiful kilim rug. And the copper bar stools really give the bar some bling.

A couple of weeks ago, we took a company trip up to Dallas for one of the best perks of being a designer: Market. Yes, I get paid to shop. But after conquering a 15 floor building and also a chunk of the Dallas Design District in 2 short days, it can get a just a little bit tiring and overwhelming. I’ve since recovered and am excited to share the experience with you. :)
My boss surprised us and upgraded our hotel reservations to none other than the hottest boutique hotel, Hotel ZaZa. Word is that Drake was staying there at the same time as us, and after some brief Instagram-stalking, we are 95% sure we saw his dad in the lobby. Dinner at Dragonfly was seriously one of the best meals of my life and it will definitely be on my hit list next time I’m in the D.
Here’s a few (blurry phone) pictures of some of the great things we saw in Dallas:
And of course, a summary of my fave items:
1. This new Currey & Co chandelier is sure to make as statement. Modern & classic at the same time.
2. Gorgeous black metal vases!
3. It’s all about the brass baby. How adorable are these tables?
4. Do a group of these wood deer heads on one accent wall for a fun effect.
5. Loving this awesome art line – lots of great prints to choose from!
6. Palecek’s new modern bar stool!

Last night I had a meltdown. And then an epiphany when I saw this quote on Pinterest. Lately I’m feeling like there are not enough hours in the day, too many miles away from loved ones, and an overwhelming amount of to-dos and decisions that need to be made. Really, none of us can do it all. We can only do our best. And your best will always be enough. It has to be.
Always know that you are fabulous. xo
