LOOKING FOR A NEW COUCH

10 cool couches | designlovefest

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…

WOMEN & WHISKIES PARTY!

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.

CLOSET MAKEOVER!

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.”

MOON PARTY & DOWNLOADS!

this post is something i’m really excited and proud of! i love how everything came together, and i can’t wait to tell you all about it so you can have one of these magical floor parties of your own. throw one in your backyard, string up some lights, project a cool saying on the wall and voila!

hosting events and workshops is one of my absolute favorite things to do. so when epson asked me if i could come up with some alternate ways of using a home projector system my mind immediately went to parties. i feel like i constantly have something to celebrate or plan and decorate for and i thought it would be fun to have something that you could throw up on the wall to instantly make it feel like a celebration.

so we created party downloads! four different sayings and phrases that you can download and project on the wall of your own gatherings (pst, you can enter to win one of the projectors after the jump!). we picked my favorite, make your own magic, and threw a little party around the moon theme.

kristen and amy from moon canyon styled the event, from the hand-painted rocks to the perfect centerpieces, they exceeded my expectations as usual. and heirloom la created a gorgeous spread of food and the most delicious cocktails you’ve ever tasted.

they really are creative culinary geniuses!  i mean, the cocktail had edible silver flakes in it!

amy painted all of the rocks for the table and made individual mini moon watercolor place cards for everyone. the magic was in the details for this party.

i loved the idea of having a floor party…and surrounding the table with pillows and mini stools for the platters of food to be easily accessed.

we got the most beautiful assortment of pillows, moroccan rugs and tables from found rentals, they have a wonderful selection of vintage pieces that you can rent for parties. in love with all of the pillow textiles…

the colors were straight out of a dream and jesse captured the day perfectly.

we used the powerLite home cinema 2000 projector from Epson to project the saying on the wall. it worked great! we’ve also been enjoying using it in the studio to watch huge episodes of Girls on the wall during lunch time!

download one of these 4 designs to project at your next party and enter below to win the projector we use in our office for so many things!
