Honestly I’m completely stressed out at the moment. The bungalow is filled with packing boxes up to my ears. We move in one week from today to a house that does not even have floors yet! Let alone a finished bathroom. I’ve been focusing on getting the basics in the guest bedroom done this weekOne Room Challenge -Week 2 -the Kitchen makeover
A few days ago we started painting, not all of the house, but enough so we at least can move in.
One of the things I’m kind of obsessing over in design lately is black moldings and windows. This house has low ceilings and sunny California outside so I have to be careful not to be too heavy handed. Since I have the luxury of living there first and seeing what the light does to the walls, I can wait to decide just how heavy I can go with the use of black moldings.
We’re going to move in to the guest room for the first couple of weeks until the floor goes down. The plan for that room is to be a Beverly Hills hotel inspired suite with my own twist, so it was painted coral.We're finally painting!
I love seeing people’s fantastic spaces, and even better when I find some with Jill Sorensen Bedding in it. Here are some pictures from Meg Shackleton’s apartment in San Francisco. I always love a glamorous space!

This weeks Bedroom Design Idea – Mid Century Maven!
This look was inspired by all the beautiful mid century houses you see all around LA. Although mid century can be minimalist in feel, there is no reason to keep the design indoors that way in my opinion! Add patterns and color but stay inspired to styles from that era.
This time I paired up some of my label with West Elm, Waverly and Society Social for a somewhat cost conscious bedroom design.BEDROOM DESIGN IDEA – MID CENTURY MAVEN
