The February Edit

Tuesday, February 21, 2017

The older I get, the more I think about forgoing trends and investing in quality pieces that will stand the test of time.  Do you ever think about that when shopping?  More and more I'm asking myself, will I still love this in 10 years?  Is this piece well made and will it last through 10 years of wears? This month I'm all about quality pieces that will last.  If you like this post, you might also like other fashion posts check here, or my fashion pinterest board.  Shop the look below!

Iceland Part 1: Reykjavik

Sunday, February 12, 2017

In the summer of 2016, we travelled to Iceland for an epic road trip around the entire country - The Ring Road.  We flew Wow Air from LAX to KEF and it was a relatively easy non-stop flight.  WOW air is a newer airline and has really inexpensive flights to Iceland from the east and west coast.  It's a bit of a different experience than other airlines, basically you just want to make sure that you buy your checked luggage up front when you book otherwise it winds up being pricey.  Also, load up your laptop with movies because there is no in flight entertainment.

We started in Reykjavik and stayed two nights there.  We stayed in an airbnb in 101 Reykjavik and got some really great recommendations from our host.  The location was about a 10 minute walk to downtown which was perfect.  I loved the minimal design of the flat.

Silverlake Abode

Monday, January 23, 2017

Cleo and McShane Murnane’s Silverlake home is an eclectic mix of modern simplicity.  The founders of Project M Plus, a design and architecture firm, have created an inviting home with beautiful textures and unexpected details that catch the eye.  I love their use of patterned rugs and throws, natural woods, furry sheepskins, and the overall pared down look and feel of their home.  Scroll down for more goodness, and see the full tour on Jenni Kayne's blog, Rip & Tan.  If you like interior posts, you might also enjoy these other design posts.

The January Edit

It's finally cooling off in LA, and I'm thrilled to be experiencing some "winter" weather!  This month I'm after versatile pieces that can be layered for cooler months yet stylistically take you through the seasons to spring.

Topanga Canyon Home

Monday, January 9, 2017

I've found my dream home.  Serena Mitnik-Miller, founder of General Store, with outposts in Venice and San Francisco, recently renovated her Topanga Canyon home with her architect husband, Mason St. Peter.  General Store is one of my favorite local shops; their space is wonderfully inspiring and their goods are highly curated and very unique.  It's always a challenge not to leave with something! When I came across their home featured on Domino I had to share with you.
