A Freespirited Fall: 8 Cozy Boho DIYs

Finally, a new post! The past few months have been spent frantically getting our NEW APARTMENT together, adjusting to San Diego life, and splitting my time between work and school. Life has changed so much lately, and things have been difficult, but as always I’m establishing balance. And yes, you read that correctly: Max and I have a new studio here in San Diego. It has been surreal moving into our own place, and it has presented its own challenges…but I can’t wait to finally reveal what we’re doing with the place in that cheesy, but quintessential home decor blogger … Continue reading A Freespirited Fall: 8 Cozy Boho DIYs

An Ongoing Trend: Sediment, Swirls & Stone

In a post a while back, I discussed a trend I love in interior design, and one that has enjoyed more than a few minutes in the decor spotlight: stone. On the walls, as furniture, or in artwork (or represented as such), I love the organic appeal of stone and its ability to add a sense of opulence to a space. An speaking of, in general I’ve become quite taken with organic modern design. Maybe it’s that longing for minimalism I mentioned earlier, or the coziness that natural accents, like a woven rug or live edge table bring, but every … Continue reading An Ongoing Trend: Sediment, Swirls & Stone

A Mild Tassel/Pom Pom Obsession

For a while I’ve been seeing blankets embellished with huge pom poms and tassels and I can’t help but want to go out and thrift a blanket and a few rolls of bright yarn (as if I don’t have enough) to make one! The weather here in San Francisco has been a bit nippy and I’m jonesing for more ways to stay warm, and what better way than a cartoony throw? This DIY has been around for a few years, yet I continue to see it in styled spaces and shops, so I thought I’d do a short round-up of … Continue reading A Mild Tassel/Pom Pom Obsession

Re:Make 2015

Every year Brit + Co hosts a creativity and tech summit featuring talks by modern makers and vendors dedicated to selling their craft. This year,┬áBan.do founder Jen Gotch, Microsoft Chief Experience Officer Julie Larson-Green, and Adobe VP of Community Scott Belsky were among the many speakers invited to the Re:Make 2015 conference. Normally passes for the conference portion of Re:Make are pretty hefty (and no wonder, these are some top tech industry folks!), but I was scheduled to work both days and got to enjoy most of the event from the Brit + Co “pop-up” shop. It was two days … Continue reading Re:Make 2015

For the Love of Fjellse

When I can’t shake an idea or project that’s been brewing in my head, I hold on to it until I’ve seen it through. Finding and staining a Fjellse was one of those projects. It was a simple DIY really. I researched IKEA’s cheapest bed frame and the fabulous ways you could hack it, and found there weren’t many examples of stained Fjellses on the web (not even Pinterest!), so I wanted to document my own project. I managed to find mine in perfect condition, with slats, for way less than it was already worth, and my boyfriend Max and … Continue reading For the Love of Fjellse
