what's your fancy: hollywood regency dining room

We've found creating concept boards for our full service clients gives everyone (client and us!) a better idea of the direction in which the space is heading. In this case, we were looking to create a more formal, hollywood regency inspired dining room that maintains a healthy balance of vintage and new. Even with a similar formula, the options feel very different, but beautiful, if we do say so! Which one do you fancy? Leave us a comment!

on the hunt @ brimfield

Well we finally made the trip to Brimfield. It was HOT. And there was a lot of STUFF. And we walked A TON. Thank goodness for those apple cider donuts that got us through the tough times of antique shopping. Honestly, I was a little tiny tad bit disappointed. The prices were very reasonable but there was so much weeding through country rustic New England real antiques for some slim Mid-Century / Hollywood Regency pickins. Is it really true that all the funky, modern, cheap finds are in LA? Don't let us down, September Brimfield. Click through to hear how we envision each piece.

mixing + matching: palms and fronds!

We have a new post to introduce! Welcome to our blog, Mixing + Matching. It involves lots of pretty fabrics, colors, and prints and of course, recurring themes. It's summer!!! Time to celebrate visually and feast your eyes on some whimsical summery collections for your interiors. We are searching high and low for the right fabrics for a client and couldn't pass up a few fabric samples along the way. 

What are the recurring themes, you ask? Good question! First, and most obvious: PALMS AND FERNS! You know, huge trend right now and festive for the summer months. Option 1 is playful, hollywood glam, bold, bright and totally appropriate for your dream 60's modern California split-level vacation ranch with a pool. (Is that on Airbnb? Because I want to stay there.) If by chance, you live in the New York / New England area, you'll notice there isn't the beautiful thing of the palm tree. We have FERNS here. Which are just as pretty, right? Option 2 is for your beachy Block Island gray-washed teak-shingled house with a pool's screened in porch.  A fun combination of patterns and color and totally fitting for New England. (Gonna be an awesome screened-in porch.) OK, let's get real. Not everyone has a place like this- but no one will stop us from using these fun combos regardless of location or home size! ALSO, both collections have the colorful flame stitch that always makes us weak in the knees. Mix those colors and patterns!
