custom poufs

love the look of a pretty pouf?

hate the high price tag?

i adore these gum drop poufs from amy butler… AND the price tag!

the pattern will run you about $11.98 and the fabric is all yours to choose the perfect colors and patterns for your space {not to mention the fun of sewing it yourself} !
this is on my to-do list!

VIVA magazine

i had a photo shoot yesterday at the apartment for VIVA magazine… they asked to feature me in june’s issue. stay tuned for some switch-aroo spring styling i did for it!

the perfect sofa


domino, may she rest in peace

this pic from my “style file- for future home” {when i do everything custom and spend a fortune} never ceases to make me smile. especially cause now i know that this sofa is actually super comfortable~ i used 2 of the loveseats in the presidio heights place and upholstered them in Barbara Barry grey linen. it really is perfection.
