Wrapping up the year and thinking of a couple new pieces of furniture for the home?
I rarely mention sales but Room & Boards (almost famous) post-holiday sale is worth noting. This annual clearance sale offers savings up to 50% off sofas, tables, storage pieces and accessories.
A couple of my favorites you can scoop up online or at their Boston, San Francisco, New York or LA locations.
Happy Room & Board hunting.
I came across Urban Craft Custom Builders during one of my internet sleuthing trips this weekend. Based out of Houston, they have built some really thoughtful, stylish homes that feel chic and relevant for how we live today.
Enjoy some of my favorites from their portfolio and be sure to check them out at Urban Craft.

This Tissus d’Hélène fabric arrived from London last week. Such a special artisanal boutique fabric company… I can’t wait to see it transformed into Living Room pillows for my client.
A friend of mine, who also happens to have a terrific Public Relations firm in San Francisco was filling me in on one of her new clients. I immediately asked if I could interview the founder, Diana Vincent for a blog post about her recently launched High Camp Home. What started as a brick and mortar boutique and premier design firm in historical downtown Truckee, California, in the Tahoe area has stretched its wings into a fabulous e-commerce site. High Camp Home makes sprucing-up the ski cabin an incredibly easy task!
High Camp Home is cholk-full of all the chic rustic lifestyle essentials including furniture, lighting, accessories rugs and seasonal decor. My favorite detail over at High Camp Home is the local artists work available for purchase, making it easy to find the finishing touches for decorating with a relaxed, yet polished vibe.
With the leaves starting to fall and the wind blowing outside just about every item over at High Camp Home is on my “must have” list for fall and winter
A few of my absolute favorites…

Happy fall + winter shopping and a huge thanks to High Camp Home
1.) What is your signature style?
My signature style is sophisticated rustic design. No bears or moose allowed! I love combining texture with natural materials to create space that is warm and inviting but rustic and rugged enough to withstand the active lifestyles of my clientele and the harsh climates that surrounds most of the homes we work with.
2.) The perfect carpet brand/ line for a Tahoe cabin to withstand snow & ski boots?
In reality, the perfect carpet is really WOOD as it is durable and wears well.
3.) Go to paint color/ brand?
For a white paint that is warm and works well in most settings, Pratt and Lambert Milk White.
4.) Favorite, product you have in stock right now?
As it is fall, I love pulling out the blankets and throws and currently our store is filled with some wonderful throws that are not too heavy but have fabulous texture and rope like tassels. The Europa throw in camel is my favorite, although our Halloween Ghosts are seen walking down the street with customers visiting our store everyday, this time of year!
5.) The perfect stocking stuffer for Mom?
Pairing the Chalet Stripe Scarf with the Decorated Hoop Earrings is a great combination. Throw on a pair of Uggs, cozy sweater and jeans with this scarf and earrings and you are good to go anywhere in Tahoe!
6.) You are based in the in Tahoe area. Give us the scoop…
Where should we….
True Old Tahoe Ski Ambience – Cottonwood
Great Menu – Stella
For families – Northstar; for great skiing Squaw/Alpine always wins
I love going off old fire roads and hidden spots but for easy to find snowshoeing the meadow up at Mount Rose is really pretty

I’m a bit obsessed with teepees lately. The idea of incorporating a cozy reading tent into a kids room or a play space reminds me what childhood should be all about. Here are a few I love and some inspiration for creating your own “teepee room.”
I love Chilewich mats for so many different reasons. They are well crafted, functional, sleek, timeless and versatile.
Chilewich makes what feels like a million products. Pet mats, placemats, iPhone case covers, you name it…. but my favorites are their door mats for a busy family mud room or placemats for everyday use.
