Found Vintage Rentals Opens in Northern California

I’ll start this post by saying that I’m deeply troubled by the weekend’s events in Charlottesville, Virginia. I can think of little else. I spent much of the day composing a piece that I’d hoped to complete in time to share with you today, but it’s still a work in progress and I don’t want […]

I’ve been thinking and talking a lot lately about the intersection between tech and interior design. As our lives become ever more connected, our homes do too!

Custom Upholstered Furniture + Caroline Cecil Textiles at Consort

We moved into a new house last November, but looking at our living room you’d think we just signed our lease yesterday. The decorating process has been slow as molasses, largely because of the footprint of the room. It’s not small per se, but it’s a funny L-shape, and the furniture we already had doesn’t […]

Our Days of Hiding the TV Are Over!

One question I get asked a lot is, “Where do you find your inspiration?” The answer I always give may not be the most useful, but it’s definitely the most honest: “Everywhere!” Because the truth is, even the most unexpected source can provide a wealth of ideas for any project, from decor makeovers to entertaining […]

I recently made my first purchase at The Line, and it will probably be my downfall. You see, I’m now on their email list and have been getting their sale updates.

Custom Roller Shades by Nate Berkus for The Shade Store

When designing a room, the decision I hate making the most is what window treatments to choose. Most of the time, I just default to sheer white linen curtains. Hard to go wrong, right? But when the question of function comes into play—in the bathroom, where you don’t want to flash your neighbors, or in […]
