Mi Favorito

Sometimes the style of spaces that I love is so varied and other times consistent. Do you often see trends in the interiors that inspire you? Do you try to identify them?

This is what I’m loving on now.

I like purple and indigo together in my art


I dream of putting l-shaped additions on to traditional ranches,





cocktails with St. Germaine Elderflower



I think about work spaces in the home that are both masculine and artful




anytime someone wants to mix heavy wood with white and then toss in a Serge Mouille count me in

Estate Envy: Ruffalo Wannabe in Westwood

nickey kehoe ruffalo home
Pretty much since I moved to California, Sarah has been trying to get me to decorate my home(s) like Mark & Sunshine Ruffalo’s sweet little surf shack in the hills of Hollywood. She’s stalked the home on the real estate market and here on the blog we’ve consistently referred back to his mix of masculine and feminine pieces for the Heffe House and I’m sure it is why DC got the Jenny Lind for her first big girl bed.

I guess that says something about Sarah’s consistency in her style and taste, and it also speaks well for the timeless design choices made by Nickey Kehoe, a design house that we all grow more and more in love with each and every day.

Here is a little refresher eye candy of that project!



So, this past week, in my ever persistent search for the right westside home, I stumbled upon this little charmer and immediately thought of Sarah and her desires to channel her own inner Kehoe for a flip, style, shoot and sell fantasy. We want to renovate, bad.

Have a look for yourself. This little Westwood 3BR/2BA baby is on the market for $1.2M and is sized right at over 2,400 square feet. The early century Spanish surf shack style is itching for a lot of layers of global textiles alongside of a mix of traditional and midcentury furniture.

Let’s tidy her up and make her shine like the Ruffalo home!

Sarah’s Picks for Houzz: Masculine Bedroom

So it appears that my recent Ideabook for Houzz for a masculine bedroom spot generated more opinion and comments than I would’ve guessed. People are pretty opinionated about some of my picks. Check it out and tell me what you think.
