Design Crush: Eric Olsen Design

coastal southern california home

I recently came across the portfolio of Southern California architect and designer, Eric Olsen. I’m in love. He creates beautiful, traditional homes with a fresh, contemporary feel. Many of his projects feature gorgeous aged wood ceilings, paneling and cabinetry that give a wonderful earthiness to the space. One project referred to as “Port Streets”, is a favorite. Pictured above, the home has a relaxed California style I adore. The backyard patio with fireplace is a stunner too. Take a peek for yourself!

Design Crush :: Christine Dovey’s Home

Did you see Christine Dovey’s home featured last week on Style Me Pretty? Hello gorgeous. Christine, a stylist, mother of three and the voice behind the Bijou & Boheme, collaborated with interior designer, Meredith Heron (who I had the pleasure of hanging out with while in Vegas for BlogTour -love her!!!) on the project. The result is simply stunning. With a balanced mix of various period styles from mid-century modern to Art Deco, the home is all glam and all Christine.

You’ll see from some of my favorite images that Christine has embraced several current decor trends including the use of brass (hardware, lighting and furnishings), wallpaper (foyer, girl’s bedroom) and geometric patterns (textiles, rugs throughout). Love it!

Our Halloween Front Porch and 25% Off Lulu & Georgia

For the last couple weeks, my kids have been begging me to decorate our home for Halloween. So, this past weekend we got to work and now our house is inundated with creepy rats, crawly spiders and erry bats. The sight does make one’s skin crawl.

For the front door (the most important area to decorate for Halloween!), we kept it fairly simple and started with a chic orange geometric doormat kindly provided by Lulu & Georgia. The orange instantly says Halloween, but can be used year around. A large pumpkin, magnolia wreath and a family of mice were added to the Halloween front porch to greet our guests. The mice were created using this template and black paper. Frightfully simple to do!

Book Review :: Suzanne Tucker Interiors – The Romance of Design

San Francisco’s award winning interior designer, Suzanne Tucker co-founder of Tucker & Marks Design is hailed for developing elegant, enchanting and always perfectly balanced spaces. Her timeless designs are inviting and draw us in with layered art and antiques transitioning between classic and contemporary, casual and formal.

Following the huge success of her first book, Rooms to Remember, I was thrilled to learn of Suzanne’s newest publication to be released October 15th. Suzanne Tucker Interiors: The Romance of Design by Monacelli Press is truly inspiring. Suzanne offers readers a view into her design process and intimate glimpses into her clients’ luxurious homes (including Tucker’s own home). With over 280 stunning images, selecting ones to share with you was the hardest part of of this review, however here are a few of my favorites:
