Having trouble deciding which headboard to buy?  Just want to change the look of your dining room for an upcoming party?  On a tight budget?  Insert self-adhesive, removable, surface graphics!

Blik, a small graphic design company from Venice, California has become the leading designer and maker of these chic, creative and cool wall graphics.  They’re just so innovative and fun but also reasonably priced and easy to use.  All of the designs I’m highlighting were done by Mina Javid, a favorite repeat designer for Blik.  I love that Mina’s work feels high-end yet still accessible to us “budget conscious” design lovers.

Color inspiration… whites and soft grays, mixed with subtle accessories of the same palette.  This scheme is so clean and simple, plus you can always add or remove splashes of color with vibrant flowers or a simple throw blanket based on your mood or entertaining plans.

Happy Friday.

Going to the chapel… | travel

The Cosmopolitan, Las Vegas, Weddings, Chapel, Hotels Travel

We all know Vegas is a sure thing when it comes to the unexpected.  After a long day at the Las Vegas Market last week, while staying at the Cosmopolitan Hotel, sure enough… I spotted the unexpected.

The Pop-Up Wedding Chapel in the Cosmopolitan Hotel offers a serious twist on the classic Vegas quickie wedding.  My favorite part is that they even offer a faux 24-hour wedding, just in case you’re having um, well… commitment issues.

The decor concept felt hip, fresh and just fun.  While I’m not in the market for a chapel, I’m always in the market for design inspiration and the white chivari chairs, faux sheep skin rugs and “Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas Nevada” backdrop sign were all working for me.  A little vintage meets totally modern Vegas.  Well done, my friends at Cosmopolitan, well done.

Man At His Best {Esquire Home} | decor

Super Bowl, Man Room

In honor of Super Bowl Sunday, I thought I’d share a classic “man-inspired” luxury furniture line I recently discovered at Las Vegas Market.

Esquire Home Line is a spinoff from Esquire magazine, which has been a classic gentleman’s read since 1933.  It is a collection of home furnishings and accessories inspired by the lifestyles of the discerning, modern, Esquire man.  But I like the pieces for just about any comfortable, casual, yet sophisticated home.  I’m always very thoughtful of what my husband, or my clients’ husbands, would want to sit on, relax in or watch the game from… and a few of these pieces thrown into a home would definitely help check the man’s wishes off the decor list.

A few of my favorites from the collection below.

Enjoy Super Bowl Sunday with your friends and family.

Domestic God(ish)

One of the most difficult parts about being a parent is finding someone to watch the kiddos for the occasional date nights and (kid free) events.  I’m extremely lucky to have family close so we’ve not had to deal with booking a lot of sitters.  And when we’ve needed someone I’ve had great luck tapping into the local university network sites.  But the task can be a bit tenuous and time consuming.

Insert… urbansitter.com, a Bay Area website that was launched by local moms in September.  It gives parents the ability to book qualified sitters, fast. I literally got online and had 3 interviews with qualified local sitters before my boys were done watching Curious George.

The site is set-up and organized in a way that parents can view sitters they know – as well as sitters their friends know – and book them in real-time.
