just wow. take a look at these stunning rugs. i’ve been doing a little looking around online for decor ideas for my neglected back patio and stumbled upon these from armadillo co. it’s just a small space, but since i just signed another year lease i figured it was time to spruce it up finally. i actually just bought this one from west elm to try out there, but i can dream about these, right?
do you like the natural look? are you wishing you had one like me?!
this week you can win 1 of these 3 pendant lights from jardan. i love how you can see the lightbulb through the glass. this would look so cool over your kitchen table! (open to international. yay)

i’ve always been a fan of a good statement couch. a bold color, a funky texture or shape. i recovered my mid-century brown tweed couch with a bright teal fabric a few years ago. eventually, my cat turned the bottom of it into her personal scratch post and it’s looking pretty sad these days. aaaand it’s generally just not very comfortable for movie watching. it’s good looking, but i think i’m ready to invest in something a little more lounge-worthy. i’ve been searching around for inspiration…
my current couch above (in not that great of shape)
i want the kind of couch you want to fall into after work with blankets and not get up for hours.
i would be open to leather, linen, velvet. i can’t decide! if you know any great couch leads, let me know please.

women and whiskies invited me and my good friend victoria to host a girl’s valentine’s day party in my studio and it was SUCH a blast. my favorite girls, whiskey cocktails, pretty flowers, food, and dancing made for the perfect evening. i really love the concept of women and whiskies which is to support women and their consumption and education of whiskey. it has notoriously been a “men’s drink” and they want to switch that by empowering the ladies with knowledge so that we’re comfortable tasting, talking and buying the spirit on our own. kudos to that!
we sampled all of their whiskey brands (wild turkey , forty creek, russell’s reserve and glen grant) and mixed up four different cocktails (you can find the recipes, here.) that were all delicious and did the trick!
we had the best time putting this party together and i got to work with some of favorite vendors to completely transform my studio. found rentals really pulled out all of the stops and outfitted the studio with the most beautiful array of vintage rugs and furniture. it was basically girl heaven. i created a “drink pretty” vinyl wall decal and had it printed for over the couch. it really grounded the space and made it easy for me to show people what the hashtag for the party was!
moon canyon made an outrageous centerpiece and the prettiest hanging wall installation as the perfect backdrop to the bar. kristen is such a gem.
and heirloom la absolutely killed it with their color appropriate food for the occasion and impressive setup. have you ever seen prettier deviled eggs? we had a ton of finger foods for everyone to snack on the whole evening.

my closet has always been an afterthought, which is crazy because i utilize it every single day. but it’s easy to neglect when i can just slide the doors shut and pretend it isn’t a mess. when target asked if i wanted to work on a closet organization project i eagerly accepted because i needed it, badly. the first (and best) decision i made was bringing elizabeth, a professional organizer, on to provide her expertise and services. she had so many tips and tricks that i never would have thought of, and that she’ll share with you below…
the shoe area may have been the most disastrous part of my whole closet. i had no system for organizing them so i’d just pile them in there and pray i’d be able to find the right pair when i needed them. here was elizabeth’s solution to the problem: “Anytime you have an open shelf with a lot of space above it, look for a way to maximize this area so that you can store multiple levels of things like shoes or accessories. In Bri’s closet, we picked up 4 shelving units to store her shoes by type and color. Maximizing vertical space is the best way to keep everything in view.”
