I came across the photo tour of the Costal Living Coronado Showhouse via Derring Hall today and it’s truly everything you would hope for in a California Beach retreat.
Built by Flagg Coastal Homes and designed by Los Angeles based Betsy Burnham and Max Humphrey, the home is a true nod to fresh, elegant and casual California living. I love that they did everything they could to take advantage of the ocean views by putting the sleeping quarters downstairs and the living space upstairs.
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.
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.
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.
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.
I can’t get enough of actress Megan Mullally’s Hollywood Haven, featured in Elle Decor.
The place is full of cheerful tones and bright, light-filled spaces… with a touch of vintage. It feels like it mirrors her onscreen personality!
Seems like the perfect venue for a chic party to kick off Spring.

I’m really loving all of the new online boutiques that keep popping up. One in particular that caught my eye recently is Nine Space!
I was drawn to them for their overwhelming attention to detail and perfectly photographed products. They jump off the pages and help tell a beautiful story of what they’re about – which is simply artisan decor, cozy throws and dreamy bathrobes. They also have amazing yellow dip-died napkins that are a must for Spring.
Although small with only 8 employees, Nine Space seems to be lean and mean, selling their thoughtful items to over 400 retailers, spas and hotels. They were named one of the top 100 private consumer product companies in 2013.
I pulled some of my favorite shots from their lookbooks and listed the products that I feel pair perfectly with the vibe.
Also, Nine Space heard we were fans over at Cecy J and offered a discount to our readers. Between now and April 30th they are offering our readers 30% off ALL items! Just enter CecyJLove at checkout.
Happy Nine Space hunting for Spring.
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.
