Thank you, Kristie! It's such an easy + fun DIY - definitely a win, in my book! If you make one, be sure to let me know - I'd love to see your version! :)
Toggle Commented Feb 22, 2015 on DIY // Faux African Juju Hat at K Sarah Designs
A few months back, I wrote this post about African Juju hats, and how awesome they are when displayed as decor. I just love the simple round shape of them and the great texture they add to a space. Traditionally, Juju hats are made of rooster tail feathers, and are... Continue reading

Hello hello! It's been a while, but I wanted to pop in and share one of my favorite recent client projects. This one was really fun, partially because my client's tastes happened to be similar to my own, but mostly because she was a joy to work with! Erica stumbled... Continue reading

SO precious!! I'm not sure which I adore more - the actual card with Ellerie's message in it, or the photo of her writing the message :) Love that sweet girl so much! Amazing captures, as always, E! xo

Hi Eva - thanks for the note! The chandelier is from West Elm & I included a direct link to it in the body of the post, right beneath the design board :) I hope that helps! Best, Kristen
This home, designed by Owens + Davis, is one of my favorite spaces that I've comes across in a long time. Striking a wonderful balance of modern, eclectic, and bohemian, this home has a very California cool feel to it, and is chock-full of inspiration: One of my favorite elements... Continue reading

Hi Cheryl, Thanks for the note! I probably can't give the best advice from your description alone, but if you want to shoot me a quick email with a photo of your space, I'd be happy to offer my two cents! Feel free to email me at: Once I see what you're working with, it will be easier to give some recommendations :) Thanks! Kristen
Happy Happy New Year! I have to admit, usually I'm totally energized and excited for a fresh start this time of year, but have been feeling decidely not energized this week, battling one heck of a cold that will. not. quit... Ugh. Not exactly the way one wants to start... Continue reading

No, I don't think it would clash at all! ORB hardware is mixed with stainless steel appliances all the time, and the two can look really great together :) Good luck! Best, Kristen
Hi Sheri, I would imagine the glass floats are vintage, so were probably picked up at a flea market, or online on ebay or etsy :) I did a quick search, and found these 10" ones on etsy: I hope that helps! Best, Kristen
Hi Allison! I can't believe I somehow missed your comment until now, but thanks so much for taking the time to stop by and leave a note! You have such a lovely home! This entryway has always been one of my favorites, and I thank you for sharing it :) Best of luck with your new home! I'm sure it will be amazing :) Cheers, Kristen
Holy moly, I can't believe its been almost a month since I last blogged! My sincere apologies for the break, but I did want to pop in with some last minute holiday gift ideas. If you're anything like me, you may still be scrambling to find a last little something... Continue reading

Oh gosh, these are amazing, Elise! They so capture Ellerie's fun personality and sweet nature... plus I'm totally dying over her expression where she's trying to get out of the bumbo! So funny :)

Hi guys! Lately I've really been loving bedrooms with wall sconces rather than the traditional table lamp. Sconces provide great task lighting for reading in bed, and are especially perfect for smaller rooms, where there's not quite enough space for large nightstands + table lamps. Here are some of my...

Hi Carolyn, The light fixture is the "Dottie Round Capiz Shell Pendant" by Worlds Away, and you can find it here: I hope that helps! Best, Kristen
Happy Friday, friends! Today I wanted to share two new-to-me etsy shops that have incredibly affordable + awesome goodies. The first shop is Arastabazaar - they're based out of Turkey, and have a huge selection of kilim pillows at the most affordable prices I've ever come across. The second shop... Continue reading

In addition to the cooler weather, cute layering clothes, and Fall baking that comes with this time of year, football weekends are without a doubt one of my favorite parts of Fall. I LOVE football, especially when it involves cheering on my Cal Golden Bears and Green Bay Packers. Anyway,... Continue reading

Hi Katherine, So happy you still love the design! :) And yes, I'm happy to share the chandelier information. I'm not sure if you're interested in the top Living Room one or the middle Dining Nook one, so I'll give you both. The top one is the Orb Chandelier from Ballard Designs: The one in the Dining Nook is from Restoration Hardware: Both chandeliers come in several finishes & sizes. I hope that helps! Let me know if you have any other questions. Best, Kristen
There are few things that thrill me more than finding a really good deal or discovering awesome, new-to-me talent or products. I also really enjoy sharing these finds, so my plan is to post cool stuff I've come across throughout the week on Fridays... this might be a collection of... Continue reading

Don't you love when you come across a space, and can immediately tell a certain designer was responsible? There are a handful of designers that I can think of where this is the case, but perhaps one of the most obvious for me is Emily Henderson. Every single room designed... Continue reading

Happy Friday and Happy Halloween!! Before heading into the weekend, I wanted to share some of my favorite finds from October, many of which have a definite Halloween and/or Autumn vibe to them - it's so fun adding some festive pieces to the mix this time of year!: 1 //... Continue reading

It's so wonderful having the chance to work with genuinely wonderful people, and there's nothing I enjoy more than helping them create spaces that they'll enjoy coming home to + spending time in. This master bedroom project was no exception, and my sweet client, Betsy, was looking for an overall... Continue reading

Lighting is truly one of my favorite elements in a space. A beautiful chandelier or pendant has the potential to completely transform a room, elevating it from something that's merely "nice" to something that's a total showstopper. Of course, an awesome fixture is only part of the lighting puzzle, since... Continue reading
