WEEKEND AT HOME / 16

i’m a big believer in switching out throw pillows often. it’s the quickest way to refresh a room and keep yourself from getting tired of a space. plus, it’s one of the less expensive ways to make impactful changes. i like mixing a few neutrals with some fun bright pillows. a few quick tips: pick a color palette, mix a few different pillow shapes (like rectangle, circle, square), and layer them on top of each other while spreading out the colors for balance. i tend to find that one solid, one textured, and one patterned work best together, but feel free to play around! i’ve got lots of options for you to mix and match below. which are your favorites? let us know in the comments! erika

WHAT I LEARNED IN THERAPY

therapy

i go in phases of getting personal on this blog. to me, part of creativity and even my job is very connected to how i’m feeling and what i’m going through. so if you’re not into the mushy stuff, feel free to scroll on past to the other pretty pictures. today i’m going to be talking about patterns in our lives, and our core issues that cause them…

TOKYO TRAVEL PART 2

IMG_4373-1

posted all about the first part of our tokyo trip right here…and then our overnight trip on the train to kyoto here. and this is part TWO of tokyo! let’s do it…

as i said before, we stayed in meguro at the claska hotel. this was my favorite suite there…the beautiful retro minimal decor was so lovely. and the whole room was in the same warm tones which i really appreciated. above you will see jen performing sia’s “chandelier” for my snapchat haha. also, that’s the traditional breakfast they offer in the lobby which i liked (but they also have american style food if you wanted to switch it up)

after we got home from kyoto it was nice to come back here, relax and then go out for a nice meal. we had dinner at seriously the best sushi i’ve had in my life. it was just the four of us and the chef made each bite special. natalie even cried when he was cutting the cucumber because it truly was like watching art. it was probably top 3 meals of my life. the sushi was like butter and the care that went into the food was truly moving. you’ve seen this doc, right? similar experience to that.

one of my favorite places visually was yukamo suryo. it’s out of the way some, but it was so gorgeous. we made a reservation early in the week and had breakfast there our last full day. it really gave me the same feelings i had when visiting coqui coqui in tulum (see here) it felt tranquil, well thought out, chic, and fancy but not over the top. i think the meal was about $30 and that paid for about a 1.5 hour intimate breakfast experience of different teas and traditional food and dessert. i loved the details in the space the most. the bathroom sink was even amazing.

MAGIC 8 BALL PREDICTS: POWER PANTSUIT

the power pantsuit| designlovefest

it’s time to get matchy matchy, ladies! pantsuits are making a serious come back and they have never been more chic or cool. nothing like their 80’s sister, these suits are in bold colors and patterns, either cropped right at the ankle or flowing into a wide leg. they come in all types of fabrics and are sure to make a statement, that’s for sure. this trend stands in stark contrast to the un-styled styling that has been so popular over the past few years. nothing says i care more then putting on a head to toe coordinated pantsuit look and taking the streets.
