I can’t wear enough white these days. It’s a nice summer compliment to all the black in my wardrobe and while it may be trickier to go all white at night, I’ve teamed up with Target Style to show you how I’d rock the head to toe colorless look three different ways….
Recently, I have been working on a living room design for Eden of Sugar and Charm and it is allllmost finished, so I thought I would share the design board I created for her with my initial furniture selects for the space. Eden’s style is “rustic modern” which was a fun twist on my usual aesthetic. Her house is in an idyllic neighborhood outside of LA that I didn’t even know existed. When I arrived at her place I felt like I pulled up to the neighborhood I grew up in, in the mid-west! So to match the location, Eden’s style and the style of the house…this is my take on a “modern country” living space.
Her living room is similar to mine in that it is a living room & entryway all in one space, so there were a few different furniture clusters to address. An entry/console table and mirror for the entry, as well as a bench and gallery wall that serves as a place to pull on and off shoes, and the main seating area with accent chairs, sofa, and coffee table. I balanced the two different styles by making sure there were several elements of both modern and country (or rustic). The rustic entry bench is offset by the modern frames and the sleek console table. The modern shaped sofa is balanced by the more traditional cozy silhouette of the yellow chair, etc. etc. And as always, I like to layer in natural patterns and textures like the fur on the chair (love the unexpected combination of the fur on such a traditional chair), the cow hide pillow, wood grain, plants, woven baskets, and that mirror… which is made to look like porcupine quills!
I can’t wait to show you how the space turns out!

This weekend my eldest sister was visiting from Florida, so we played tourist in our own town and Bugaboo invited me to share my top spots in a mini family friendly city guide, so here we go…
To Eat: my favorite pick has been Gjusta, it’s a bakery/deli/cafe by the same folks as Gjelina, so the food is incredible. You order at the counter and find a bench or milk crate outside to sit on, which isn’t the comfiest of seating arrangements, but it is that casual picnic atmosphere that makes it great to bring the whole fam.
Archer has been bopping around in the Bugaboo Bee, which we love for the compact design and the bassinet option. The bassinet is so perfect for a newborn to be able to nap in comfortably, while we scoot around town.
