Loving the new moody blue pieces my girl Haley has been churning out lately.  Check out lots more fabulous pieces here.


Not mad at the new collaboration between designer Ilse Crawford and Ikea, not mad at all.


It's a bit late but I wanted to welcome Ostrich Farm to the neighborhood.  This lovely little Echo Park restaurant has quickly become one of my favorite spots for a casual dinner with the hubs, not to mention the decor is absolutely perfect!

These cute chairs make me want to go camping!!! That and all the awesome camp gear I got form my wedding.

New year new bike!  I love my little Fuji feather, and have learned quite quickly that my seemingly flat ride home is all up hill...not so fun but you bike to get in shape so there's that.  Anywho I just cant take the sad eyes my tiny dog gives me when I leave so I've been looking into options for a bike basket.  So far these are my top three contenders.


I've always loved built in storage as headboard



Love this bright kitchen with stained plywood cabinetry and a missive island perfect for cooking up a feast.



Been considering a new coffee table for the living room that I can actually put something on, this guy looks like a winner, I might even try to make one myself out of solid wood...


Sweet happy little bedroom of designer Jenny Norris.


I attended the new Brendan Ravenhill studio opening and floor sample sale yesterday and went home with this bad boy.  Its so g-d elegant, I can't to install it over the dining table!

With home prices soaring in my little Echo Park neighborhood, it got me thinking of the possibility of buying land rather than a house and putting a custom designed pre fab on it (this still comes in way under the price of a fixer upper). One company that caught my eye was Connect Homes.  It's immediately apparent that the founder worked for many years at Marmol Radziner before launching his own company.  You get the high end look without the high end price tag. I love.


Last but not least, Part 4 the reception at on old boathouse on the bay.  Everything could not have been more magical.
