I’ve been in a rather “traditional home” mood lately and nobody seems to be doing it better than Sawyer | Benson… an architecture, landscape, and interior design firm based out of New York City.

Their thoughtful mix of traditional exteriors paired with more modern and clean interiors is truly inspiring.

A few of my favorite snaps from their various projects.

Enjoy!

Summer Tattoo | Life + Style

CecyJ-LuluDK-Tattoo

I’m so not a tattoo girl… that type of a commitment gives me chills up and down my spine.  But after seeing my “perfect body” yoga instructors at Gather in Ketchum, Idaho rock them flawlessly this summer, I feel like I could get behind the trend.

Love the options you can find over at Lulu dk, a chic online shop for more than just summer tattoos…

Summer is all about making room for friends and family to gather together.  Here are a few of my favorite folding chairs (and stool) to ensure we have room for everyone.

Holland & Sherry: New Wallpaper Collection

CecyJ Holland Sherry Wallpaper

I’m loving everything about Holland & Sherry‘s new Wallpaper Collection, Archetype.  With 37 colors in this hand painted line, and all made in the USA… I can hardly wait to use for an upcoming Powder Room project.

Summer 2014

CecyJKitchenRender

It’s been an exciting Spring 2014 getting some large remodel projects to completion and preparing to take some time off for SUMMER.

We will be opening a new Studio for our clients to visit in the Fall and launching our new website that will have a little boutique “virtual” store.

Thanks for always checking in with us over at Cecy J Interiors.  We’re so glad you’re here with us.

Obsessed with this photo of Charlize Theron and Sean Penn at the Met Gala last night, snapped by the storied photographer, Mario Testino.  Such an elegant moment in time…

Serena & Lily goes Brick & Mortar in San Francisco

CecyJ-SerenaandLily1

What a treat to check out the new Serena & Lily store on our beloved Sacramento Street in San Francisco yesterday!

Sacramento Street is a great “local” shopping district that I wrote about last year as a guest over at Confessions of a Design Geek.  Serena & Lily’s first West Coast brick & mortar store is the perfect addition to this corner of the city where boutiques and cafes line the street.

The store will focus on clients who want to peek at products before making online purchases.  They graciously welcome interior designers and their clients for a true design studio experience.  With a plethora of innovative ways to display their colorful wallpapers, perfectly patterned prints and occasional furniture, the team truly seemed to think of it all.  This includes a Living Room for designers to enjoy during client meetings which hosts an impressive gallery of rotating one-of-a-kind art you can pluck off the wall for your own home or for a client.

And, still true to their roots as a company founded in 2003 as a nursery furniture and bedding only venture… they had a sophisticated baby nursery on display, anchored by a new addition to their wallpaper pattern called Herringbone Wallpaper in Fog which I’m REALLY loving.

It’s always a pleasure working and spending time with “team” Serena & Lily.  Special thanks to our host and friend, Lydia Cullen, for the gracious tour of the space.

The Closet | Decor

via Pinterest

I saw this pin on Pinterest over the weekend and I thought it was a cute idea for the high-end shopping obsessed.  Great way to reuse those pretty, thoughtfully designed, shopping bags.
