get the look: the now

If you find yourself in LA and looking for a moment of zen, The Now is one of my favorite places to start. The minute I walk into one of their massage boutiques I feel instantly transported to some relaxing exotic locale. Tulum suddenly doesn’t feel so far away.

get the look: the butcher’s daughter

sss_butchersdaughter_02If you follow me on Instagram, it is no secret that The Butcher’s Daughter is one of my favorite local restaurants. The decor is so in line with my own aesthetic, whenever I go there I feel right at home. There are special details all around like the shibori booth and gold/quartz table, a macrame ceiling installation, hanging plants all around and a stunning back patio. It strikes a perfect mix of styles that I would dub as modern boho farmhouse.  READ MORE

Travel Stories: The Amado

the amado palm springs // sarah sherman samuelWhile our A-frame still has no bathroom, about a half of a kitchen, and is covered in saw dust, we are getting extra familiar with all the hotels and lodging options in Palm Springs. One of my favorite Airbnb’s in the area is The Amado where we stayed this week while checking in on the construction of our place.

desert-night-amado-sssthe-amado-sssThe boutique hotel was once an apartment building that photographer and founder Jaime Kowal renovated and restored to become the polished mid-century gem it is today. There are 5 units total, we stayed in unit number 5 which is the only two bedroom and comes with it’s own semi-private patio as well. We had my parents in town so the two bedroom was perfect. You can also rent out the entire place for events (sign me up!). Lucky for us, since it was mid-week we had it all to ourselves anyway!

The decor is minimal in all the right ways with some pretty great art on the walls. I’ve rounded up a few of the pieces so you can steal the look and bring The Amado vibe into your home.

get the look: australian magic

whiitng architects // get the look // sarah sherman samuel Be still my heart… this room! I came across this space in Australia designed by Whiting Architects (shot by Sharyn Cairns) recently and about had a heart attack from all the good going on in there. The neutral color palette with that gorgeous shade of green (so close to the green of my kitchen!), the laid back vibe and the big black built-in window seat bringing the drama. I wouldn’t mind taking up residence on that sofa, no sir. But in the meantime, I’ve pulled together pieces so you can steal the look…
