Time for a little Monday lusting to get the week started off with a bang.
I have been trolling the world wide web for some client inspo. Thanks to the blessed Pinterest I was lucky enough to stumble on this article of The Cronulla Residence by sister design duo, Yasmine Ghoniem and Katy Svalbe of Amber Road. They’re a landscape architecture and interior design company based in Sydney– shocker I KNOW, and their style is just BEYOND. What the hell Australia?? When will you rub off on the United Stated of ‘Merica? I swear there must be something in the water there…
Anyways, this whole project is swoon worthy… the monochromatic palette mixed with warm wood tones, the leather, the textures, the simplicity … the list really goes on and on.
Without further adieu, take a gander for yourselves:

Pretty great, right??!
Its My Day of Birth today so I figured what would be more appropriate than to post the funniest video I have seen in a long time. As I age I realize that laughter is healing for me. When I watched this, I laughed so hard I fell over.
Hope you do the same!
Here is a round up of good ones!!! Interested to see your take on them all.
Lets compare notes shall we??
1= leave :: 2=leave :: 3=take :: 4= take :: 5= take :: 6=leave :: 7= take :: 8=take :: 9=leave :: 10= take
what say you?
1 :: I have brought on some amazing custom pieces from the talented artist Jane Denton to the Shoppe! You can now buy framed pieces from The Shoppe HERE.
2 :: Anthropologie has done it again, with a cute little staple every home needs. A pouf!! THIS one and THIS one are to damn cute for words.
3 ::THESE round sunnies are really helping me ease into Fall!
4 :: THIS woman is crazy talent. I need to know this Camille Walala…i mean her name alone is enough to intrigue me.
5 :: Sunset Mag and I worked on a little “One Sofa Three looks” post. Go take a look HERE
6 :: THIS post made me think… I also spend a good portion of time getting the right angles and “shots” for my instagram pics. I am dumb and I guess not alone! Thanks for keeping it real Bustle.
7 :: I was recently introduced to the adorable and fantastically talented Jane Pope of JANE POPE JEWELRY. I have called hard for her rings that are just perfect for stacking. I pretty much want them all but I have my eyes on the “Skinny Slate” ring for an early Birthday prezzie!
8 :: I most definitely would skateboard 10X better if I had THIS baby. I think we all would.
Moving shop from the cluttered dining room of my home to our new studio has been A LOT of work. I joke often about being a hoarder, but this move has made it more apparent than ever!! I don’t know about you guys, but having a tidy and organized space is probably the best feeling ever. I tend to let things get crazy messy before I really go nuts and clean up. In this new space I am vowing to change this!!
We are aiming for a “clean as we go, all clean, all the time” goal because working in an organized space just feels good. It’s nearly impossible to focus or be creative amidst a mess and chaos. I am much more efficient when I don’t have to worry about whipping my office into shape. Finally getting the chance to put things in their designated spaces, like dishes and cups, gives me that small sense of accomplishment and peace of mind that it’s done and I don’t have to worry about it any more. I think it’s important to have a sense of control over your environment and to take pride in your space and keep it clean and organized. What’s even more amazing is that miraculously my stress levels are returning to a manageable level… In fact I am feeling quite calm!! I guess organizing will do that to me.
I’ve partnered with Scotch Brite to share a peek of our new kitchenette! It’s been fun fixing up the joint and the tiny kitchenette is one of our favorite spots. The fresh coat of white paint, the pretty oak countertop, pastel pretty dishes and trinkets, and an organized mini bar are all the ingredients to a #cleanfeelsgood moment lovers! Am I right?! Check out what we did in my studios little kitchenette.

We are steadily moving through the entire remodel of my “Client Freaking Fabulous’s” house. We have graduated from the kitchen and the front area of the casa, and have now moved onto phase 2 which is all the bathrooms. We have thrown together some serious inspo and made some mood boards and elevations. I thought I would give you all a gander at what we have been cooking.

I will save the “Before” pics of the actual spaces until I have some “Afters” to show ya!
SUP MONDAY PEOPLE..YOU READY TO RUUUUMMMMMBBBBBBLLLLLLEEEE????
I AM BACK FROM A WEEKEND AWAY AT OJAI VALLEY INN WITH MY BESTEST GIRL FRIENDS AND I AM ALL REJUVENATED AND READY FOR THE WEEK TO COME.!!
BOOM SHAKA LAKA SHAKA LAKA SHAKA LAKA

Its pretty fair to say that 97 percent of the time I am a little overwhelmed. It may not seem that way to onlookers, but in my head…its a rodeo.
Whats my problem??? Well, to put it bluntly, I am an over thinker and an over analyzer…but also make numerous knee jerk, fly by the seat of my pants and wing it type of decisions. I am pretty sure that by default, this makes me certifiably insane and perpetually stressed out, and I can own that, however lately I am feeling slightly more overwhelmed than usual and like I need to take a big step back and reflect a little. Perhaps its the GIANT new responsibility that comes with the studio, or paying salaries, or G starting kindergarten, or my crippling fear of failure, or that I don’t even have time to watch Real Housewives…or Bachelor in Paradise anymore, I am not sure. But this transition of taking on more feels like some heavy and crucial shit people!!! I am not whining (yes I am) and I am well aware that I can handle this (can i?) but I am feeling the struggle and talking about it on the internet for a little vent sesh. Sorry!!!!!!
I stumbled on the above quote from Pinterest and I thought I would share. It’s a good reminder to myself to take a chill pill and remember that sometimes its OK to not have it all figured out, but to move forward anyways.
Thanks for supporting me my lovers and friends..
What a wonderful long weekend that was! We had a big BBQ for my brothers B-day and labor day combined and then we went out for some kick ass Mexican food and a little bowling with some pals. It was the perfect way to say goodbye to summer…even though it’s still 136 degrees here. In work life “client freakin fabulous” has wrapped up the first phase of construction.
If you missed it…here is the house prior to them moving in …
:: BEFORE ::
:: AFTER ::
We are still waiting for the cabinet hardware, the faucets, and a brand spanking new custom designed light fixture..Its gonna be good!

:: AFTER ::
It came out quite fancy, no?
There are still missing parts, and obviously there is no furniture….but we have some really gorgeous stuff coming in!! Can you say 9 1/2 foot walnut slab dining table!! Can you say HUGE custom brass chandelier??!! Can you say enormous custom comfy sofa with walnut legs ??!! Can you say LEATHER!!
Anyways, that’s all I got!
We are moving into the office today. Its FINAL and we will be working from the new space all week. Stay tuned for those pics as well….hopefully by tomorrow!
