All Souls Mercantile

I thought it fitting to share this company founded in 2014 by Tova Celine  in LA.  She visited a warehouse filled with army surplus dating from the 50's to the 70's and decided there had to be some way to honor the stories of these materials. This Los- Angeles based company offers one- of -a kind handcrafted vintage army surplus materials "reinvented"! Check out some of the great ways these pieces have been brought back to life. To see more go HERE! Have a safe and peaceful Memorial Day weekend everyone!

Singing The Blues!

There are few reasons why I am singing the blues. First the King of blues himself BB King passed from us this past week, and my projects like all projects are taking longer than expected. My kitchen is at a stand still because I am next on the list for the painter but I am not sure where that "next" really means! The outdoor bar moving slowly due to weather and issues, so no opening the pool for Memorial day! On a positive note I do LOVE blue! Also, I am only joking!  I am so lucky that these are the only little issues in my life at the moment. So, instead let's make this a tribute to the blues in the best of ways - RIp BB!

Who needs a pool anyway when I could simply jump right into this amazing painting by my dear friend Maureen Chatfield!

Walls and Fabric - It's All The Same!

I was so inspired by a wonderful Instagram image this AM that I just had to post it.  I have always loved matching fabric to walls to furniture ever since I saw the wonderful room of Lee Radziwill!  There is something so elegant and smart about a redundant play of pattern. I think I need to find a space in my home to incorporate this design idea. How about you matching or not? What's your thought?
