One site I’ve visited what feels like a million times for inspiration is deVOL Kitchens. Based out of the charming town of Loughborough, England, their kitchen designs are simple and timeless but still current.
Here are a few of my favorite deVOL designed kitchens. They seemed to be known for their use of shaker style cabinets mixed and various reclaimed woods and stains. Nothing they do necessary matches, but it all works beautifully together. Thank you, deVOL, for creating approachable beauty.
Head to their website where you can purchase design services and kitchen/bath accessories.
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’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.
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…

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.
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…

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.
