Apartment Therapy

Thank you to old friend Leela Ross and Apartment Therapy for featuring my roommate Sam and I this past week! Please click here to see the full post.  

Sam, Kona and I having coffee in the living room.

We do spend a lot of time in our living room, it’s where  friends gather to catch up on the day and where we come to relax.   

The living room.

I am obsessed with the pink/purple vintage peruvian throw from Upstairs Pierre Lafond in Montecito.  It is amazingly soft and the colors are beautiful!  Also pictured in the background is one of my most prized possessions, a screen print by Weegee.

The dining room with high oak table and bar stools from Ikea.

Will Adler and Morgan Maassan photography in the background.

Check out Will Adler’s website here, and Morgan’s here.  These are two of my favorite photographers and they also happen to be local friends.

Sam's bedroom with driftwood wreath.

If I ever have free time on my hands I enjoy getting a little crafty on occasion.  A few years back a friend and I started a small business where we create art pieces from drift and recycled wood.  Sam has a wreath hanging above her bed.  Please click here to see more of our designs and inquire about ordering.

Thank You!

how do you get to the bu?

As summer is quickly approaching I find myself at the office daydreaming of a perfect day at Malibu.  One of my favorite surf stops in the summer, I can’t help but get excited for the beginning of south swell season. True, you do have to share it with 100 of your best friends, but there is still something that always keeps me coming back for more.

I have put together a little list of what I plan to bring along.

1. vintage picture of Miki Dora, 2. Shiseido sunscreen, 3. Panama hat from JCrew,

4. Swim suit, Mikoh, 5. Wetsuit top, Roxy, 6. Surfboard endless summer model, Hobie.

Poolside at the Edition

On a recent trip to Hawaii I spent an evening at the Edition Hotel in Waikiki.  I was pleasantly surprised to see this new addition. The Lounge is a great place to chill out and have a cocktail, and poolside looks over Waikiki harbor. If you want to live it up step into Crazybox, the hottest new nightclub in Waikiki.
