laundry room, chic, color, inspiration, design, cecy j

Laundry can be a bit of a drag.  Okay, a big drag.  We decided to go bright and happy for a client’s laundry room to make the task seem a little more pleasant.

The color we chose was Sydney Harbor, Linen.  It’s the perfect bright color; not yellow, not green, just happy and inviting.  We went with really intentional large hardware for the cabinets… Since the room is obviously used with a lot of purpose, the hardware needed to reflect that.

P.S. If you like the rug we chose, you’ll soon be able to purchase it from Shop Cecy which launches in a few short weeks!  We will be one of the exclusive retailers in the US for this line.  Stay tuned, we’re so excited.

HIGH CAMP HOME | decor

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…

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….

eat?

True Old Tahoe Ski Ambience – Cottonwood

Great Menu – Stella

I like the simple European feel of the Cedar House, but if you want a resort feel the Ritz Carlton being right on the mountain is a great way to spend a weekend.

drink?

Lone Eagle Bar in Incline Village

ski?

For families – Northstar; for great skiing Squaw/Alpine always wins

snowshoe?

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

Chilewich | decor

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.

Morrow & Morrow | decor

WOW!  Somehow, I was lucky enough to come across Los Angeles based  Morrow & Morrow  on one of my many internet sleuthing trips.  I’m a sucker for Monterey Colonial architectural but all the Morrow & Morrow homes are pretty dreamy.  I would love to know who the interior designers were that worked on some of these projects.  I pulled some photos from the Morrow & Morrow portfolio.  Enjoy!
