My Big Finale!

Well, this is it.  My final farewell.  Today is my last day at High Fashion Home.  I’m leaving to pursue a career as a stay-at-home mom.  See? Yep, I’m ready to pop!  All our bags are packed, we’re ready to go.  Except we’ll be leaving in a Prius, not a jetplane, and we’ll be back home from the hospital in a couple of days. My pretty new Vera Bradley diaper…

Lines I Love…SAIVANA!

I’m such a sucker for details. Pintucks, pleats, embroidery, princess sleeves… you name it, I’m on it. But I like my dose of girly with a bit of edge. Which is why I love Saivana. Once only private labeling to such high end European designers such as Isabel Marant, Dries Van Noten, Max Mara, Kenzo, and Susanne Rutzou, they are now creating their own line combining timeless embroideries with modern…

Baby Got Black

The name alone made me fall in love with this mascara. “Baby Got Black”. But it was the built in mirror on the side and light in the cap that sold me. I buy and use a lot of mascaras. I admit, I haven’t been that loyal (I cop to any new mascara fad out there) until now. I’m a smitten kitten. What pray tell, made me fall head over…

My New(est) Obsession

I am a person who loves to have a project.  I enjoy days when there is nothing on my plate, yes.  But I’m always looking ahead to the next project I’m going to tackle.  Call me crafty, but I love to make things.  On my list of things to try: stamp-making, french macaron baking, and Japanese Washi Masking Tape!  It’s already made its rounds all over the blogs, but I’m…

House Beautiful Kitchen of the Year 2010

The House Beautiful Kitchen of the Year 2010 was designed by Mr. Flip Out himself, Jeff Lewis. Jeff is the main “character” on Bravo’s show Flipping Out. Of course this kitchen is perfect… have you ever seen his show? I love the openness of the kitchen…. Lots of light, lots of space; everything a kitchen should be. Enjoy the photos! : )  Jeff calls the design “California modern” and points…

Fashion Designer Lela Rose’s House Tour

Fashion designer Lela Rose recently gave a house tour to Shelterpop.   She and her husband took an old fabric warehouse in New York and converted it from a raw, cold space to a stunningly, clever home decor space.  Proof is below: The retro modern sectional with the contrast seat fabric is a perfect compliment to the red accent home decor items in the room. Simple, yet interesting.  Rose had…

Antiques Galore!

The HF team was hard at work last week merchandising a truck full of antiques.  The pieces are old.  They are heavy as hell.  And they are just divine.  Check out some of the great pics that were taken.  The t-shaped pillar took a small army of 8 people to set up.  It’s over a hundred years old and weighs in at a slim 900 pounds.  I’m not sure if…

Beverly Hills Hilton Hotel

I recently had the privilege of being a guest at the Beverly Hills Hilton Hotel. My friend, Whitney, was the lucky winner of a radio contest (and she took me!) that included a 2 night stay at this amazing hotel…. Thanks Whitney and 103.7 FM! The hotel staff was so wonderful. The lobby was amazing. I loved the sofas, chairs, rugs, lamps….. The giant gold mural on the lobby wall.…
