i’m leaving in an hour to get on a plane to chicago, and then taking a train to quincy illinois where most of my extended family lives. i only get to go there about once a year, so it will be nice to see everyone. my parents are coming to stay with me for a california christmas this year, so i’ve been decorating the house so it can feel more finished by the time guests come. it’s so hard to pull the trigger on furniture, isn’t it?! i’ve been doing lots of research for inspiration and i loved this boho bedroom. my couch takes 4-6 weeks and the waiting game is killing me!
i hope you all have a relaxing week. we are going to be posting lighter this week since most people will be busy eating turkey and loungin’ around. but check back for some turkey leftover recipes! enjoy your time off with loved ones. xo! -bri
hopefully you guys are starting to notice MORE content happening on the blog. we have the addition of trends with our magic 8 ball column, we just started fun fact friday to use for your weekend hangouts, we’re bringing back way more DIY posts, and we’ve got a lot more up our sleeves. bringing on natalie is really helping me bring more ideas to life and more content to you all. this also allows me more time to do personal posts and the roundups that i love doing.
i just moved into my new house about 3 weeks ago, so i am in that phase of…i need a new trash can, this rug doesn’t fit in that room anymore, it’s time for a new door mat, i need more storage solutions, what about a dish rack. all those little things that make a new house complete. since i’m constantly searching online for home decor items, i thought it would be fun to share with you every so often a roundup of items that are not only good looking, but functional too. those things everyone needs.
first up: door mats. mine were old and filthy and ready for a refresh when i moved in to my new spot. here’s a roundup of some that i found online…

well it turns out faux fur is for more than halloween costumes and vintage cheetah jackets and we can’t get enough. the coats are amazing, but let’s talk about these heels for a minute!
the teddy bear browns of yesterday have been transformed into a variety of sorbet shades. neutral nudes are striped alongside vibrant hot pinks. texture plays largely into the effect too, shaggy, fluffy and closely shorn.
as with apparel and accessories these innovations also seem to be gaining momentum within interior elements as well. flokati style rugs, throw pillows and poufs are popping up in hues other than white and cream. with the cold months of winter rapidly approaching we welcome this trend with a big, warm hug.
check back tomorrow for this faux fur DIY tote bag we made and download some on trend faux fur desktop wallpapers below!

one of my favorite things to do is look for cool hotels or apartments to stay in when i travel. i swear, i would be a travel agent in another lifetime. onefinestay is a really beautiful site with tons of well designed homes all around the world. i’ve used the service a few times and thought i would share a few of my favorites. it’s really smart especially when you have multiple people on your vacation! they’re also always looking for more LA homes to rent so if you have a pretty house and travel often definitely check them out. they handle everything from A-Z and make sure your home is exactly as you left it when you return. pretty cool!

the designlovefestival was such a blast. a toooon of work, but a blast for sure. one of these days i will learn to execute more of my easier ideas haha. we held the festival a few weeks ago, had 150 people come through, sold plants and bunch of other amazing things. it was very cool to work outside what i normally do and create something this large from scratch. i definitely learned along the way. check out some of what happened below!
