Found: Plug-In Sconces

There's nothing that really makes a bedroom quite like sconces flanking a bed - but they can also be used in pretty much any room - they're super functional, you can stick them up anywhere, and they totally make a statement. Luckily for us renters, there are tons of plug-in sconces out there that don't require an electrician (or approval from your landlord). Check out my picks below!

Want To Know What I Would Never Be Caught Dead Putting In Your Home? Read On....

I'm all about homes that have personal touches - those quirky things that add personality and make a space yours - but there are some things that are just never going to be ok. I'm a firm believer that design "rules" are meant to be broken, but there are some, let's say, guidelines, that that we all should follow...Head over to Lonny Magazine to check out my full list! 

What design mistakes make YOU cringe?

Patterned Removable Wallpaper Round Up

Its no secret that I am a sucker for wallpaper - I've been using it in tons of projects lately. Its such a rad way to make a statement in a room, and the best part? There are tons of easy to remove choices that are great for renters and commitment phobes alike.  

When you're shopping for removable wallpaper there are two kinds to look for : 

  • Pre-pasted wallpaper can easily be removed without water or chemicals (will usually say strippable or peelable) and it my opinion is actually easier to apply than adhesive - simply spray the back of the wallpaper with water to activate the paste and apply. 
  • Self-adhesive wallpaper can be applied and reapplied easily and is usually vinyl or a polyester blend - but word to the wise often strips paint when removing if it's been on the wall for a long time! 

Also word to the wise - most companies will allow you to order a sample - I highly recommend this so you can see what it will look like in your space!

Get The Look: Rustic Modern Apartment

GUYS. I apologize for a serious case of AWOL. If you follow me on the Insta you know I just started a badass new job at Sonder. Sonder is totally changing the way we travel - think Airbnb minus the awkwardness of staying in someone else's home plus all the amenities we love about hotels - designer toiletries, maid service, crisp linens - all within the comfort of a beautifully designed home (designed by moi!). We're still in start up mode but I've already had the change to work on some amazing spaces here in San Francisco. 

This bad boy is one of my favorite spaces to date - totally went out of my bohemian comfort zone and had SO much fun in the process.
