Woven bag round-up

I’ve been buying up all kinds of woven bag, for myself and for gifts, like crazy! It’s one trend I am fully on board with and so happy there are so many good ones out there right now, so I’ve rounded up a few of my faves for your shopping pleasure. x

Sapira Mattress

 If you read yesterday’s post, you saw that we’ve set up a bed to temporarily convert my studio back to a guest house. You see, we have family coming to visit for the holidays and without any spare bedrooms in the house, I wanted to make sure they had a comfortable place to welcome them.

recently reached out to have me try out and I thought it would be a perfect opportunity to create the dedicated guest space for the holidays, and it also gave me the excuse to execute the DIY headboard I had rattling around my brain (see the DIY post here).  READ MORE

DIY woven headboard

Well, I’ve switched some things up a bit… there’s a bedroom in our studio! We have family coming in for the holidays so I’ve temporarily converted the studio to a guesthouse. When Archie arrived we transformed our only guest room to his nursery, which left us with no space for family to stay, other than crashing in the living room. Once we built-out the new studio space my parents were able to stay there when they visited but we didn’t have that great of a set up. My mom would sleep on the sofa and my dad on an air mattress.

This year I wanted to welcome them with a much more comfortable space, so I set out to create a beautiful bedroom on a budget that would also be easy to convert back and forth from my studio to a guest room when we do and don’t have house guests. I had most things on hand but the design started to come together when I saw  and a DIY headboard idea was born.


Supplies Needed:
Small Finish Nails

I wanted a headboard to frame out the bed and make it feel like a proper bedroom and all I did was purchase and and secure them to the wall with tiny finish nails. Five minutes later… instant headboard!

Another great thing about this DIY is that I can repurpose  for a table setting while they aren’t in use as a headboard.

On a side note… I love seeing how my wallpaper works in a bedroom setting, which has me really excited for when I can start selling it (I’ll keep you posted but it should be available early 1017!).

I bought which has legs that screw off easily so we can store it without taking up too much space when we don’t have guests and I topped it all off with my favorite . Next I added some ottomans as night stands, and a grounded it all with a vintage rug, from my ever growing rug obsession collection.

I am not sure how having a bed in the studio over the next month or so will affect my productivity. It is pretty naptime tempting after all, but I am sure my visiting family will appreciate it.

mobile in Erin Fetherston’s nursery

A few months back one of my favorite design firms, , reached out to me about a house they were designing in Hollywood and I ended up making a custom mobile for the nursery, inspired by the one I made for Archer. The house belonged to and out came  where it was featured in the last issue looking allllllll sorts of stunning. So happy to be the tiniest part of it. That is one good lookin nursery, as well as the rest of the house. I had to include a few of my favorite shots from the tour because it is just too good. Well done as usual, (and with the photos).

I love those oversized animals, and the hanging chair, and how the mobile looks with white string (I used black in Archer’s). The entire house is filled to the brim with pillows and textiles from Erin’s beautiful , which you can shop on .

How gorgeous is that bedroom, and living room, and patio and and and…? See more about the nursery from

in my bag – utah

I bucked my fairly neutral usual packing strategy and filled my bag with a palette inspired by the high desert landscape of our destination… Utah! You may remember one of my favorite trips from a couple years back when we did THIS ROADTRIP but this time we are headed straight to Utah and staying there. Here’s what is coming with me.
