I don’t know about you but I LOVE a fresh cup o fruits and veggies – even if it costs me $20 for a 16oz-er. (Hey big spendaaah!) Yeah, that’s right, antioxidants are my friend and I’m not afraid to shout it to the whole world! Any who - I just came across this ADORABLE Juicery in Amsterdam called The Cold Press Juicery. This project introduced me to Standard Studio, a multidisciplinary firm in the Netherlands. Go ahead and take a gander at their portfolio and tell me their work isn’t incredible!! I never thought I’d plan a trip to Amsterdam around a juicery but I just booked my ticket – in my mind. A quick daydream trip never hurt nobody!
1 // In this valley heat, it’s important to stay hydrated…with one of these Spicy Watermelon Mint Agua Fresca dranks!! Ummm YUM.
2 // It’s all about the perfect sandal in the Summertime… aaand it just so happens that everyone in my damn office has a pair of these Joie Sandals?! I just feel left out now…
3 // I came across this quote on Pinterest the other day and well - It’s true. Spread that love around and you’ll be golden! The world needs way more L-O-V-E these days…
4 // Holy Shhhhmokes. Shoppe just got some dope new prints added and this one by Michael Hillman, just happens to be one of my favs. Now if only I could be floating down the Truckee River right about… NOW!
5 // Wowzaaa – this clutch IS CLUTCH. Go ahead and treat yo self - it’s the freakin’ weekend!
6 // I can’t even believe it but I’ve been taking a couple yoga classes here and there lately… and now I need THIS yoga mat. If I don’t buy it, I think my whole routine will be thrown for a loop. I think I’ll file this one under TREATING MYSELF.
7 // Oh these old things? Had them for what seems like forever now and they are my good ole faithfuls. I love my reflective LeSpec Sunnies!
8 // Lastly, not only does the world need more LOVE… It also needs a heck of a lot more PEACE. You can find me spraying this interior aromatic peace spray from Shoppe around the office all day – everyday. But seriously, the girls think I’m a weirdo – I just skip around and spray peace in their faces. Spread Peace…Spray Peace… Same thing. Happy Friday Loves – xx
Hellooooooooo, it’s ME… Ambular. Do you lovelies remember me? I’ve been so busy but I swear I haven’t forgotten about you or this blog! Okay, I might of been guilty of this in June but I’m back and ready to update you on tons of fun thangs going on over here in the Land of Ambular Interiors! Until I can fill you in on the REAL GOOD STUFF, I thought I’d provide you with an easy, breezy Designer Quick Tip. This lil corner nook is just to pretty not to show y’all!
If you are not new around here, then you know I have a serious obsession with all things Australia. I have never been. and am waiting patiently, to get a couple clients down under so I have an excuse to fit it into my schedule!
I can see it now, Ambler Interiors decorates fab boutique hotel in Byron Bay…(#thesecret)
In the meantime while I project my dreams out into the universe, I will sit here pinching myself that Client Freakin Fabulous has 5 pages in the July issue of Marie Claire Australia!!!! WHAAATTTTTTT!!!
I don’t think you can buy this mag anywhere around here, so see the full spread below!

It’s Before and After time friends!!!!!
OK, So normally I bombard you with the entire house all in one go, but I am going to try a little something different this time and split the whole house into parts! There is a lot of house to cover…and basically I find my super long before and after posts really annoying, so you must also, HA!
I rarely give you a full backstory with our projects, but in this case it was such an interesting one, I think its worth repeating. We were essentially hired to clean up another designers work, and so the majority of the house was already done as you will see in some of the “Befores”. Unfortunately the clients weren’t thrilled with the first go round with the interiors and really wanted something different. It was definitely a little tough on the clients (an awkward for me) to hire another designer RIGHT after they just wrapped up working with one, but the clients were really good sports and were willing to do what it took to make their home exactly what they envisioned. They wanted the house to feel a little formal, a little beachy, but all the while super cozy, so we tried to give them just that and I think we made it happen!
Lets get to this shall we? #clientsecondtimesacharm
I know you’ve all heard it before, but I’m just here to remind you that the EARTH without ART is just EHHHH. Fo reals. If I had all the time in the world I’d sit down and paint but I ain’t got time for dat! For now, my medium is interiors and I’m cool with that. Gwynnie on the other hand wants to be an artist and I’m in total support of it – no joke, she’s got major talent for a 6 year old!
To get back to business – check out Linda Colleta - Her work’s got it goin’ onnn and I wouldn’t be mad if one or two or three of them ended up in one of my clients homes…
Wowza – It’s been awhile since I’ve done a Designer Quick Tip – so I dipped into the Pinterest bank to find you an absolute BEAUT interior designed by Australian firm Whiting Architects. Do yourself a favor and check them out – their work is unbelievable! Why the heck can’t Australia be closer to California?! I would design homes “Down Undah” in a flash – no questions asked! Any takers?

Man oh maaaan. Where do I even begin? This year has zoomed by at lightning speed and I have no idea how the heck it’s already May?! There’s way too much happening all at once between finishing a handful of client installs, LCDQ design week, Create and Cultivate, moving offices, expanding Shoppe, AND on top of that – selling our current home and getting ready to move our life into a dreamy new abode – It’s safe to say my head is spinning like crazy, but I’m somehow managing it peeps!! Someone throw me a bone ever here!
Since it’s been awhile since I’ve given you a glimpse into my crazy world through the lens of my iPhone – I thought it was time to sum it all up – Ambular style y’alllll.
I started my LCDQ week at Olive & June and holy shmoly – that place is essentially the nail salon of my dreams. I wish I lived closer so I could go in every damn day. Maybe that’s a bit over kill but I mean, I think I’d make a great nail technician too… Just sayin’.
Then I took my perfectly pedicured feet down to Pali House in West Hollywood to get ready for the LCDQ gala. I had a “treat yo self” moment and bought these beauts by Ula Johnson for the event – I’m overly OBSESSED. If only I had a reason to wear heels more often…
Then the morning after the LCDQ gala I participated in the Blogger Breakfast & Legends 2016 kickoff hosted by Anna Brockway, co-founder, Chairish, and Newell Turner, Editor in Chief, Hearst Design Group and Metropolitan Home. I had such a blast with all these badass bloggers – loved every dang minute of it.
Then - The weekend after I got invited to speak at Create & Cultivate, which was a crazy inspirational event for me!! I’m pretty sure I was the weirdo who was pinching herself all day… Just keepin’ it real with y’all.
Then after all the craziness – MOTHER’S DAY. Ugh, there is just nothing better than spending the whole day with Gwennie. Talk about TRUE LOVE. Nuff. Said.
Look at this ‘lil monkey though!!!!! But seriously, is she a fashion blogger? Nope – She is just a magical ‘lil being…
I present to you - Our new casa!!!! We’ll be moving in this next week – I’m actually amidst packing up all our nick nacks right now. Turns out I have a lot of stuff, but I don’t want to bore you guys once again with my unhealthy hoarding problems… HA.
Oh and what do we have here?! Well – I’m designing the kitchen of my dreams with an incredible brand over the next few months. It’s currently at the TOP SECRET phase, but I promise you it’s going to be absolutely drool worthy. I know you’re probably thinking – Amber, what is this even showing? – but, let me tell you – IT’S GOING TO BE PERFECTION!!!
Now – please pause for a moment to look at how cute Billy is at Shoppe. That’s all. Get your scroll on…
Next Uuuup: #ClientSecondTimesACharm’s final install + photoshoot day. I think I walked through the front door and clicked my heeled like a damn leprechaun. Speaking of leprechauns - I think one lives in this fern…
This right here is the wine room of my dreams… errr – I mean #ClientSecondTimesACharm dreams. When I say WINE – You say PLEASE. WINE! PLEASE!
And finally, I leave you with a picture of my good ‘ole Chucks on a b-e-a-utiful vintage rug!!
Woo! It’s Thursday and we are almost through the work week people! In other news, we photographed #ClientSecondTimesACharm’s casa yesterday and I am in LOVE. If you follow along on Snapchat – you probably are too! Stayed tuned for the big reveal coming at ‘cha soon. Until then, I thought I’d give a shout out to all these awesome pottery picks below! When photographing a clients home – you’ve got to show up to the party with tons of greenery – whether it’s cacti, succulents, fiddle leaf figs, pony tail palms – you can’t go wrong! There’s just something about bringing the outside in, that brightens up a home… Don’t you agree?!
