Stylings for Sillys...

A passion perhaps?  
How much more fun does it get than stylings a children's play room?!

Woody the cowboy in Missoni rain boots not included!

I wanted these kids to feel like they were outside without the theme being too literal.  I hung blue lanterns in different shades and sizes from the ceilings, purchased green shag rugs and hung hand-made white ceramic bird pendants in a corner. 

A few keys to a successful children's playroom:

1. What your buying doesn't have to be for children.  
(Unless it is a reproduction of an amazing midcentury chair in tiny size.  In that case, buy it.)

2. I wouldn't spend too much on items such as carpets, pillows or window treatments.  Because even if they aren't covered in yogurt and marker you are going to want to change them sooner rather than later.  

3. Please, do buy art for your kids. 

4. Don't decorate every nook and cranny. They are tiny peanuts, they are going to need room to grow (and to store all of the toys relatives give them).

5. Above all, make the room functional.  It is for YOUR KIDS!  You want it to look good but you want them to enjoy it! You want it to be a place for silliness and creativity!

Spring Has Sprung

Spring Has Sprung...
Although I dream of having a flower and vegetable garden day in and out, an indoor plant is more my pace.  
These beautiful pops of green add style and dimension to their spaces.
Truly a breath of fresh air.

In his hand is the life of every creature and the 
breath of all mankind. Job 12:10

Can We Get It Right Outside Of White?

I found myself staring into a wonderfully colorful saltwater fish tank in a hotel lobby.  It really is so amazing how that many color combinations can look so perfect together.  None really trumps the other.  The neons and grays, the gem-tones and browns. All perfect.

Can it work in interiors?

G3Q "Nothings Shocking" Stool.  Want one?  Visit our Etsy store.  Custom colors available. 

Beautiful vintage California Pottery Geisha from our store.  

Also from our store: Vintage California Pottery Leaf Dish/Ash Tray.  

We are not the best to lecture on the subject, BUT, 
we could all use a little more color in our lives!

Arizona Finds, Part 1

We've headed out East for the Spring.
