Anthropologie Summer Catalogue

Have you guys seen the latest Anthropolige catalogue? I was so thrilled to be a small part of it. The Anthro crew came to our desert A-frame and brought truck loads of their new outdoor furniture and decked out our garden! It was so fun getting to see and test out all of the new pieces that were not yet launched at the time and I got to share a few outdoor entertaining tips in the catalogue, which you can also view here.

Pre-Pinterest days, and even before I started this blog, I used to hoard Anthropologie catalogues, I’d clip them up and use them for real life inspiration boards and I specifically remember one that was set in the desert where they did a whole circus theme. I was so inspired by that shoot and thought it must be such an interesting job to get to think up the photoshoots and I dreamed of being a part of something like that. Then boom 5 or so years later here I am! My Anthro catalogue dreams came true.

To celebrate the feature in the catalogue I also got to teach a little workshop at the Anthropologie in Newport Beach where I styled a table two ways and shared more tips on tablescaping. Check here to read a few!

Now please excuse me while I pinch myself and start planning my next summer shindig… x



high/low guest bedroom

After designing several guest bedrooms recently (like my most recent one for Mandy Moore) this often undervalued space has been on my brain. It’s the space we extend to family and close friends as a place to unwind after long and often hectic travels. Going into this high/low board, I knew wanted to use natural materials and a neutral color palette to create a room where guests can kick off their shoes and feel at home. So we really did go all neutral, as in mostly just shades of white and ivory.

The jumping off piece for this entire board started with that armoire, which could just as easily go on a more affordable board but I love the lines of it so much that it’s living here amongst some really high end pieces. I’ve been loving the modern uses of caning, and this piece in particular strikes a rare balance between laid-back and high end. The neutral color palette also created an opportunity to incorporate one of my favorite pieces of art by Serena Mitnik-Miller. The subtle watercolor hues and minimalist pattern is absolute perfection.

Guest Bedroom high/lowThere are so many pieces in here that I’ve had my eye on for months, and was happy to be able to compile them into a design plan for you all! Starting with that tufted geometric rug, it creates a statement without being too loud and overpowering and continuing the ivory hues with the Anthropologie reading chair, the room starts to feel as cozy as it is light and refreshing. Win-win!
