Design Love: Caitlin Moran

I was cruising around the web tonight looking for some eye candy…. and of course…. Leave it to Caitlin Moran to bring it.  I came across this living room and now I want to add a pop of jewel toned patent leather, a tufted sofa, and a chandelier into the mix.

So chic.



And how good is the back of that purple chair?

LOVE it!

Where to Shop: Circa Who

If Josh and I lived in Palm Beach I would say pretty much everything for our home would be from Circa Who.  They have the the coolest vintage pieces that you would want to design entire rooms around.  I was just cruising through their website and was wanting EVERYTHING.


This is furniture design at its best. I wish this were mine.


Not a fan of the fabric, but if these were reupholstered, they’d be pretty sick.


A pagoda desk.


Milo Baughman styles swivel chairs.


A Ficks Reed dresser and nightstand. I love the layout of the drawers.


An awesome pair of Ficks Reed Fan chairs. We have a similar chair that i refurbished. Check out the post HERE


Sweet elephants.

You can check out all of these pieces and so much more HERE.

I spy…. A fashionable work space.

I’ve been a HUGE 12th Street by Cynthia Vincent fan for years.  Her clothes are special and modern, but still have a bit of that California-boho thing going on.  I dig the look.

So…. Obviously…. Their Los Angeles corporate showroom is just as awesome.    Last Friday I was crusing through the Cooper Design Space doing a little sample sale shopping when I totally did a creep-peek and snapped a few pics are their amazing space.

I could sit on that couch for hours and talk-shop! From the interesting horn legged benches, to the gorgeous sofa and paired coffee tables.  The space is so inspiring, creative, and fresh.

So good.

Pretty In Pink… Angie Hranowsky

I love Angie Hranowsky’s style. I have been a fan for quite some time! (see Here ) So… while I was cruising her website and found this hot pink fabulous-ness…. I had to post it up.

LOVE hot pink and purple. And her use of vintage is pretty amazing.

Mexican Blanket Love

 I just purchased a large Mexican blanket at the Long Beach Flea Market last weekend with the most gorgeous colors.   Originally I purchased it for some inspiration for a new project I’m working on, but then I realized how much yardage I have, and how it could make a really cool upholstery job.

Aren’t these ideas so pretty?

I like it to match….

We entertain a lot at casa de H & J.   I would say we have people over at least once a week…. and this can range from 2 people to 15. and I love it.  The more the merrier!

Because of that, I buy a of serving pieces.  I don’t like the look of mis-matched serveware, so I make sure that every piece I add to my mix has gold and white in it.  As much as I love mixing up my furniture and playing with time periods,  I dig a little “matchy-matchy.”

I recently came across the new Firenze Medici collection from Juliska (inspired by vintage Florentine papers) and it is absoluely gorgeous.   These would layer great with my basic white Crate & Barrel dishes, and would do well with all my gold accent pieces.  Boom.

Urban Outfitters Does it Again

Anthropologie’s kid sister Urban Outfitters has some great home goods product.  To be honest…. I’ve always been a fan of Urban Outfitters.  They always have good junk and it never really feels crappy even though its mass produced.   They are always on top of the latest trends and its hard to walk out of their empty handed.  Even if its a funny book, a candle, or some cute underwear or a dress…. there’s always something in there that works.

I was cruising through their furniture to see what their buyers have whipped up, and there are some great pieces I’m considering for our guest room and the balcony.

jute elephant side table

I am semi obsessed with this jute elephant side table.  I mean… does he get any more adorable?  I just love him and want him, and may actually just need.


urbn_heritage_bookselvesThe Heritage Book Shelf is awesome – and is on wheels.  This definitely would be great for our guest room/home office.  We have a ton of books still sitting in a card board box that need to see the light of day.

urbn_headboardThe Vagabond headobard is super cute and has that tribal/Moroccan vibe to it.


 An awesome rug that would mix with any decor

cris cross coffee table

The criss-cross coffee table , modern and sleek but I think this would look awesome to break up a vintage boho inspired home.  Maybe to even spray paint the base gold, or a fun color like turquoise or emerald green?

 Have a fabulous Friday!

Zhushing up the back patio

So far , you’ve seen my updated bamboo chair for the balcony (HERE).  The next steps are to find the following:

1. An indoor/outdoor… maybe astroturf (?) chair…

2. Get a small garden stool to sit next to the chair.

3. Get groupings of potted plants.

I’m toying with the idea of whites with primary colors, but I’m not sure yet.  Here are the pics I’ve pulled for inspiration on Pinterest though.  :)

Dabble in Some Travel: Casa Turquesa in Cabo

 This past summer I went to my dear friend Lana’s bachelorette party in Cabo.  Words can’t describe the gorgeousness of this villa that we rented for  4 days.  So, Casa Turquesa in Pedregal in Cabo San Lucas… I highly recommend.  I wish I had taken better pictures since the majority of the trip consisted of non-blog friendly drunk pics :)  And in Pedregal, this truly must be the most special place to stay.

You should really check out the entire place HERE and then pursuade someone extra special to splurge on you and take you there!


From lounging at the infinity pool all day, to tiki hut massages on the top deck on the villa, to never empty glasses of  margherita slushies… I’d say this was paradise.


The living room was gorgeous and cozy, filled with  Mexican art and ethnic textiles. I wish I had time to shop while I was there, I would have loved to find some great pieces.  Next time!


 There were adorable nooks set up to curl up and read or check emails.  So much spots to unwind and zen out.


 Beautiful folk art.

Well, clearly I didnt take enough pics of the villa, but it was outrageous and such a fun trip and an experience I’ll never forget.

Paintin’ the town GRAY!

Top on my list was to paint the ugly beige walls, and my color of choice – Gray!  And I love the way it turned out.


So above is the foyer.  Such a good color, right?  I was a little nervous because the foyer doesn’t get a ton of light and I was afraid it was going to darken the space even more, but it just made everything have warmth.


The mirror above the mantle in the living room use to be yellow (here) and was in my dining room, but yellow was not working for the new digs, so gold it is now.  Sort of obsessed with it.

More pics to come…. so stay tuned! xx
