The Floral Prints Blooming in the Fashion World

A floral story is not exclusive to Spring – ladies like their blooms year-round and the runways were more than happy to comply with moodier versions of garden prints this season. With Summer coming to an end, it’s time to talk about Fall fashion. One of the biggest trends for Fall 2017 is to wear couch floral prints. This means instead of wearing the usual floral prints with roses or daisies, the trend is to wear vintage-inspired floral prints, ones you might see on a vintage couch or pillow.

“For Fall/Winter 2017, try dark, bewitching blooms from  Preen and Gucci, graphic posies by way of Miu Miu and Marni, or creeping buds up the pale pink palettes of Zimmermann and Rodarte”

Our New Bedroom Makeover Reveal

I am so excited to share our master bedroom makeover reveal with you!
My boyfriend and I have different taste in furniture and home design (like many other couples out there), so designing can certainly be a very emotional process. You’re changing your day-to-day environment, making countless decisions, solving problems and spending money. My best advice is to come to an agreement about the basic things such as color, texture and types of furnishings, and go from there. Make decisions with love and respect. As much as you want to love your space when you walk through the door, your partner should love it just as much. Create an environment that reflects who you are as a couple and the life that you want to live. By keeping the lines of communication open, setting expectations and being willing to compromise, you can design a space that truly represents everyone who lives there.

“The main design rules for small room furniture arrangement are no different than in a large room: Choose furniture that fits the space, and don’t try to squeeze too much in”

How my Sleep has Improved after Changing to a Custom Mattress

I am one of those people that needs their sleep! If I’m running short on sleep you’ll definitely know (kind of like how people get hangry – I get like that if I don’t get a good night sleep).

We got a new mattress a few weeks back, and today I’m excited to tell you all about it! It’s from a company called Custom Comfort Mattress, an exclusive mattress company with 8 locations in Southern California (delivery available nationwide). CCM have designed and crafted mattresses that helps people sleep better at night and it’s beautiful (no seriously, you won’t want to put sheets over your mattress). Besides the meticulous handwork and materials, the big differentiator is that they offer free sleep consultations to get to know your personal history and sleeping habits. Additionally they can be made to any size and shape, so if you live in a medieval castle or Tuscan villa with non-standard period furniture or need something oddly shaped for your mega-yacht or jet, this is the place to come!

“I like to compare my mattress to first class plane tickets. Consider that some people routinely spend more than $8,000 on a single first class ticket that is used up and worthless 24 hours later, so maybe the beds, which routinely enjoy a 30 year lifespan, arent such a bad buy?.”

My Summer To Fall Transition Tips

It’s that indecisive, stuck in the middle, uncertain time—like when you’re choosing whether to break it off with a fling, move to a new apartment or quit Facebook. In other words, it’s transition season. The new fall wares you fell for when you saw them on the runway are hitting stores and e-commerce sites, while the spring and summer goods that once looked so inviting hang onto the sales rack like that fling who got a little too clingy. And while those fall goods—those Dior over-the-knee boots and Gucci pleated leather midi skirts and Céline fur collar trenches—are still as beautiful as the first time you laid eyes on them, you can’t help but get visions of melting on Madison Avenue, Wicked Witch of the West-style, when you look at them. So the question remains, what do I buy now?

“The anatomy of a transition piece is straightforward: it must be appropriate in style and fabrication to wear now and ideal to layer for cooler seasons”

The Blush Pink Trend That Will Change Your Wardrobe

Don’t lump the serene color of blush pink into your mindset of Barbie dolls, bright pink nail polish or sugar sweet bubblegum. Blush pink is a soft pale hue that is one of the happiest colors of nature that veers toward a neutral color to be styled for a natural and contemporary look. Think of blush as the insides of seashells, pale peonies and roses and the graceful swirl of a morning sunrise. Don’t you already feel happy? Blush is another comfort color to be used in those places where you want to relax and wind down from your many hubs of activity. Let’s “pink differently” about blush.

“My outfit is the perfect combination of two awesome trends; the blush pink trend and the lace trend! The intricacies of this lace detailing make for a truly feminine look which I absolutely love!”
