Project Progress - Kindred Bravely

We've had the pleasure of being hired to design the Kindred Bravely offices to reflect their brand and aesthetic. We started with a bare bones office space in need of some love, warmth and color and are in the midst of transforming three rooms downstairs, their main workspace upstairs along with a photoshoot room.

Their offices have a fair amount of natural light and we were keen to make it feel even brighter. We paneled many of the walls with white shiplap, giving the very commercial-vibed building a more custom feeling. Below are some of the before & in-progress shots so far. We'll share final photos once we're finished.

We designed a custom 12 foot table made from white oak to accommodate their team for large, weekly meetings.

We added a small lounge area within the main office space for their employees to have the option of kicking up their feet while they work away on their laptops.

DOWNSTAIRS PLAYROOM - PROGRESS

A dream scenario for Kindred Bravely employees with children; a playroom for their kids on the days they tag along with their parents. We added chalk-board paint wainscot along the perimeter of the room and we love the way it contrasts against the white shiplap.

The perfect setting for those that need a quiet place to meet or focus in a quiet space. It's incredible how much brighter the room feels.

We've had a blast designing this space and it's been incredibly rewarding to watch it all come together. we'll share more photos in a few weeks once we've had it photographed.

10 Stocking Stuffer Ideas...for the girl who loves good design

stocking stuffer ideas.png

It's Officially holiday season and we're excited to get our tree AND DECORATions up this week. I have wonderful holiday memories full of family gatherings that include a never-ending feast of Italian food, endless dining table laughter and the good old family argument ;) Although our family dynamic has changed over the years and many of us are scattered apart, I try to incorporate the same traditions that I grew up with. One tradition is opening our stocking stuffer gifts on Christmas eve. 

STOCKING STUFFERS ARE ALWAYS A TOUGH ONE FOR ME. IT'S EASY TO BUY USELESS JUNK but I really love when the small gifts even have meaning.

I put together our first gift guide of the season; stocking stuffer ideas for the woman who loves design! 

 

1 copper measuring spoons / 2 agate wine stopper / 3 keychain tassle

4 agate coaster / 5 marble cheese knives / 6 nacho cookbook

7 palo santo crystal bundle /  8 catbird earrings

9 bar water bottle / 10 geo marble planter

 

Escape to the Sea....

There's a lot to love about a sea-inspired interior. The neutral tones, recycled glass-colored accessories and breezy textiles. they all play a part in what feels serene and relaxing. We've been pinning beautiful images that reflect this vibe and are sharing an entire room designed with sources so you can achieve a relaxed and beach-worthy space of your own. 

Summertime Sorbet


I love a good summertime sorbet. Living a few blocks from the beach has its perks of coastal cool and Ive been inspired by the pastel palettes I've been seeing in the local boutique windows and in and around our cute beach town. 

Theres nothing more refreshing than a light and fresh palette. Translating these colors into a beautiful beach bungalow is next on my list!
