FYI : E-Decor

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to email some pictures of your existing space in need of a little design TLC along with a few measurements and some inspiration photos to a designer and in a few short weeks get a thorough, easy to read, budget conscious shoppable design straight to your inbox?!?!

Well if you have and were unaware, we offer just that service: E-decor!! Currently we crank out about 4 of these every month and tend to book up a month in advance. We have had only happy customers and I realized lately, I have never really talked about it here on the blog.. let alone showed an example of what an e-decor even looks like.

We just wrapped up a client in Australia!!  That’s right folks, we be e-decorating internationally. This is actually a repeat customer who came back and hired us to help her and her hubby with a new apartment and a big office. We completed her house a year or so ago, so when the time came to get a new place in the city, we got an email! Last time we were hired to make tons of custom pieces and shipped a sea container FULL of pretty items. This time we source locally in Melbourne, and the result was pure cuteness..

+ One Room Wonder +

Do y’all remember when I used to do a post here and there called “one room wonder?” Well it’s basically to highlight that frustrating thing when you come across a kick ass room somewhere in cyberspace, and can’t find a Source or any information about where on earth it came from!!  Yeah, it’s annoying…. and it makes me feel real dumb.

Case in point… Isn’t this little space just a teaser of a room that leaves you longing to see the rest of the house?

… the neutral color palette, the stained concrete floors, the planked ceiling, the hammock… the list goes on and on. And we all know I can get down with a cactus or two. I wanna see the whole house dammit


+ If you know where I can peep the rest of the pad, tell me!! +

Here it’s all about the mix. Loving the graphic patterned floors paired with the warm wood tones and black subway tiles.

Tom is the master of comfy and cozy, but never overdone and this kitchen is no exception.

I’ve always loved Thom Filicia’s lake house kitchen.  There’s nothing better than a well done rustic situation that still keeps bits of sparkly and shine.

I love that this space is compact and cozy.. not the most practical for my life, but i ain’t mad at it

My ideal kitchen would have a nook for sure– I’d never get up.  like, ever.

What say you lovers? Which is your fave?! The geometric floor and subway tiles in #1 are speaking to me.

Friday Thoughts on Things

Trend I aint Mad at: Beachy Art Prints

I have been known to discuss various “trends I aint mad at” in the past, and thought it was time to blab about another one I find generally to be a “go to” trend at the moment. Recently I started working with the incredibly talented Gray Malin on a pillow collaboration . After spending some time together and hearing more about his artsy process, my appreciation for his work as well as other photographers has increased dramatically. I mean, Imagine how cool your job must be to fly around in a helicopter and snap photos of people from above. Not only do you get to spy on people in bathing suits, HA!, but you are also totally capturing a moment in time for someone you will never meet or ever know. As the photographer behind the lens, the objects in the image are the “work” but they are actually real people doing real things, enjoying a real life. I don’t know why but if you can even wrap your head around what I am taking about, this whole concept kinda trips me out…in the best way possible. Last time I was at Gray’s home I found myself up close and personal with one of his pieces thinking to myself “I wonder what the hell that guy was thinking right then at that moment?”.. Maybe it’s weird, but  thats where my brain goes. Its a little bit voyeuristic, a lotta bit genius and definitely gorgeous. I am still digging this trend for sure!

One Kings Lane is selling some gorgeous photographs from various artists, and I thought I should round up some of my faves ( this was tough)

FYI: The Anatomy of a Pillow Combo

Have you ever looked at a pillow combo and thought, “hey that looks great, but why and how does it look great” and then you fall to your knees a scream to the heavens  above. “oh great pillow powers that be, please tell me why And how?!”

no.. Never done that? Oh ….well then this post probably won’t help you much.  But it’s cool, humor me, read along, and add some tips you have for me as well!

Peep my pillow arranging method and the break down….it’s basically rocket science (obviously)

Bitchin Kitchen Series

Who doesn’t love a good ole fashion “blog series”? And who doesn’t love a little interior porn (if you will)…I know I do!!  I have asked some of my top fave lady bloggers  to show and tell me their top 5 fave kitchens.  Over the next few weeks I will be showing off those gals picks, but in the meantime let’s kick it off with my fave 5 bitch’n kitchen picks in no particular order.

Tia Zoldan did a fine job here in this galley style kitchen.  Its small yes, but the way she infused just the right amount of color in the rug and the fun door makes the space just right. Major inspo all around!


+ Designed by Tom Sheerer +

The backsplash here is pure perfection. That Tom Sheerer really knows what he’s doing. The way he chose to not do upper cabinets is smart… Real real gutsy, and probably a little impractical for a family of toddlers.. but smart. This kitchen makes me want to forget what “child-proofing” is and just focus on what maters. Being pretty

+ By designer Stacey Begg featured in Canadian House & Home +

No upper cabinets and a wicked backsplash seem to be the formula for a fantastic kitchen. 2 toned cabinets, 2 different countertops, and brass hardware..this is really speaking to me.


+ Kitchen photographed by Jessie Webster for Glitter Guide +

I may be biased but one of my fave kitchens was my old one :(. It was bright and big and made me happy every time I saw it. Maybe I obsess over it now because I currently live in an 80′s style cave…so its a departure to say the least from that old beauty of mine. Whats thats saying, you don’t know what you got till its gone. At least we have the internet to remind us. kitchen5

+ By Jessica Helgerson Interior Design +

My all time fave designer ever ever ever, Jessica Helgerson, can truly do no wrong in my book. I am a major fan girl and at this point she would have to karate kick a kitten for me to think ill of anything she does….she’s just that good. She has that ability to give a space so much character, like it was always meant to be there, just updated in a way only she can do.

What say you lovers? Which is your fave?!
