holiday tablescape mini-series | vol 02

Hip hip hooray, TGIF! What do you have planned for the weekend? We're off to Austin later this afternoon and we absolutely cannot wait to eat breakfast tacos and BBQ! #nomnomnom

We're sending you off this weekend with a sneak peek of our second look for the holiday tablescape mini-series. Gorgeous photos by the talented CJ of Charlie Juliet!

For this tablescape, we were inspired to do a charming yet masculine farm-to-table look. We brought in a mix of muted grays, browns and blues and added in texture with the linen runner, various nuts and succulents. We love how everything turned out and this is definitely one of our favorites of the series! What do you think? 

thrift'n on a thursday | vol 7

Just earlier this week, I finished styling a bachelor's studio apartment in the city. Despite the fact that I'm a girly girl, I loved breaking out of my comfort zone and finding masculine items for his place. He had this awesome built-in shelf that needed some loving, so of course I filled it with some neat finds. Take a look!

Clockwise: My client is Hawaiian, so I was super stoked when I found this vintage postcard with the text "Hawaiian Hapa Haole" and pictured a sexy Hawaiian girl. I love how it's a nod to his heritage and where he's from. The postcard was just $1 and the black frame was $3. The mirrored Absolut Vodka bottle was a must-have when I spotted it for $5 -- definitely a unique piece of art! I love graphic text, so this "Don't let me down" postcard with the arrow cutout was a nice touch of boldness for $1. The black frame was $4 and I didn't mind showing the back since it gave an industrial look & feel. The vintage steel car and the globe are my favorites, $18 and $15 respectively. Both super unique and manly, yes?? 

With all the black, wood and steel, of course I had to add in succulents to give it a pop of color and some texture! And, also because succulents are low-maintenance = easy for the guys ... ;)

the masculine touch

Working on a client's bachelor pad has really influenced me in ways I didn't expect it to. I'm super duper girly, but I'm noticing more and more that I've been really drawn to leather, paper, glass, metals, concrete and wood. A mixture of these textures can be really sexy and sleek!

1// The leather Eames lounge chair + ottoman is such a classic. The price tag of $4500 is not so sexy, which is why it's nice to have an option of something very similar that is fraction of the cost. 

2// I heart papier-mâché animal trophies -- they're fun, bold and three-dimensional! I recently got a few from Anthropologie for my client, but depending on your budget and style, there's always West Elm and A&G Merch!

3// The metal floor lamp and the glass coffee table are super sleek. Metals give off reflection and glass is transparent -- a combination of the two really help make a space appear larger! 

4// The concrete staircase and the wooden wall is a nice mix of industrial and natural. I adore the graphic artwork. If you love Brooklyn as much as I do, you gotta get this sweet poster by Jim Datz.
