DIY: credenza

Wait…can we please take a moment to discuss how in the heck it is already September…SEPTEMBER Y’ALL!! It’s crazy how fast the days are going by…Speaking of September, it is indeed the month that we as a little family have the most events of the entire year. G is turning 6, I am turning 21 again…The Duck and I will be celebrating 9 years of marriage and the SHOPPE is finally and actually freakin’ opening. Oh and did I mention all of this is happening in the midst of 3 client installs…no biggie. I’ll sleep when I am dead

Anywayz…I posted a pic of my new office over on the ol’ Instagram about a week ago and got a lot of questions and feedback about the floating credenza. So, I decided to whip y’all up a little DIY, so you lovelies can create one just like it for your own diggity digs or office offices! Happy hump day y’all!

diy supplies:

1 // Sektion – Top cabinet for fridge w/2 doors, white, Ringhult white from Ikea

2 // Sektion – suspension rail from Ikea

3 // Contact Cement – can be found online or at any home improvement store

4 // Natural oak wood top or whatever wood you prefer!

 The best tutorial I read was from Brick House, but she used the older style of ikea kitchen cabinets which are no longer available…. Use the Sektion Style instead!

New Client Roundup

As we start to wrap up the rest of our clients that I previously introduced to you here, I thought it high time I fill y’all in on just a couple of our new ones! We are basically drowning in werk at present time and the focus is to do our best to keep cranking out new and really really good looking design.

Let me introduce you to the following

Firstly, meet #clientZtotheEtotheN. In a nutshell, this newly engaged couple are a pair of young hip hotties who want to create there own little zen den.  They just purchased a rad house in Venice with a crazy amazing rooftop that looks over the great grand pacific ocean friends. I will be furnishing and decorating their entire place ground up with a few remodels thrown into the mix. Their vibe is a fusion of california eclectic, laid back, bohemian, and a little beachyness…..my speciality!

Amber Interiors - New Client Roundup - 8.26

Next up,  let me introduce you to #clientsanfrantotesmyjam. We’re branching out of the LA/Orange County scene and will be designing this cute couple’s house up in San Francisco! If you follow me on INSTAGRAM you may have seen a couple weeks back that me and my ride or die Bridgid took a quick trip up to San fran. Well if you missed that post, get your eyes over to see the splendor! This house is something else y’all and has one killer yard with some beautiful oak trees and the best pup I ever did meet named “Homer”. The house will be worked on in a couple of stages and I can’t wait to see the end result. Their vibe will be an easy going, mod-hippie, with an eclectic and collected mix.  Amber Interiors - New Client Roundup 2 - 8.26 copy copy all images can be found here

 So there ya go lovers. Happy Hump Day

Noteworthy: Yay or Nay-Nay ….a little house

 I am not that hip…let’s be honest. I can pretend I am though, because I work in an office full of 25 year olds who by far keep me ” in the know” with what all the cool kids are doing.

I guess these tiny houses are real, and I am on the fence. And when I am on the fence I ask myself one and only one crucial question…. is there enough room to whip or nay nay???

What say you…? ?

Before + After: Client Double Thumbs-Up

Yoouuuu guuuyyyyyzz…guess what??! It’s that  before + after time again!! My real life fave thing in the whole world about my job. The time where I get to relive all that went into a project and then remind myself how much I love my job!

I say it often, but I don’t like to play favorites…because, well thats not fair, but I must admit #clientdoublethumbsup insanely gorgeous house is pretty much so good how can you NOT play favorites. I had easy bones to work with…but the direction we took makes me so happy!

Let’s get to it, shall we…

+Get the Look+

How freakin’ cozy does this bed look?!? I take sleeping seriously and this looks like a bed I wouldn’t mind taking a little snooze on. I love the rad pendant and accent table perfectly placed off to the side. If you’re digging this comfy look as much as me, then you’re in luck! Here’s a ‘get the look’ to help you on your way to creating your own corner of heaven.

1 // campanology pendant 

2// antigua pillow

3// hourglass table

4// hand knotted pebble rug – grey

5// linum washed linen pillow – olive green

6// kesh throw – grey

Client RadTrad

I really tried to crank out at least TWO blog posts for you this week, but I’ve been up to my eyeballs in #clientradtrad. We just got done with our presentation and I couldn’t have hoped for it to go any better….even despite the raging Design Marathon hangover I am currently suffering! No but seriously, these peeps are the coolest and kindest family around and are one of the many reasons why I love doing what I do. AND NO, I am not brown nosing…they don’t even read the blog! Anyways, they loved it all and are very excited about everything we proposed.  I am getting giddy just daydreaming about the “after” photos now. It’s going to be one RadTrad!

Here is a very tiny tiny amount of what will be going down in their crib…. feast your eyes on 3 rooms out of the 11 we presented, not including bathrooms and outside areas.
