Another narrow spot in the house is the entryway from the dining room to the kitchen. This is a critical passage because you've gotta walk through the dining room in order to get from the front door into the kitchen and then down the hall to the bathroom and bedrooms.... Continue reading

I discovered this little gem at a vintage shop in our neighborhood last week. Priced at $25, I knew I had to take her home with me ;) Have you found a lovely piece at a thrift store lately? Continue reading

We are campers. When we think of camping, we think of Joshua Tree. It's good for two important reasons. In terms of proximity to Los Angeles, it happens to be one of the closest places available. It also happens to be the best place to camp anywhere in Southern California.... Continue reading

I'm always amazed to discover what simplification and standardization can do to a space. Wether it's using color, shapes or just getting rid of clutter, reduction is always the key to a lighter, happier and generally freshened place. Our little south-side patio started looking a bit cluttered and hap-hazard (at... Continue reading

Out with the old and in with the new! Just in time for the patio-perfect weather, we are now the proud owners of an "adult grill". After shopping around and looking at the monstrosities they call grills these days, we finally settled on a classy, practical number. We upgraded from... Continue reading

You could make a fun mirror or (old-fashioned) pin board out of them.

This used to be a twin headboard. I found it almost ten years ago at a garage sale in Santa Monica for $10. Made of solid wood, awkward in size and very heavy, we've stored and moved this beast no less than four times. We considered just leaving it in... Continue reading

Since moving into this house in April 2011, we have been slowly working our way through each room... carefully planning, updating and (hopefully) improving it. One of the most notable transformations happened in our living room. When we moved in, we faced a very dark and gloomy room. A traditional... Continue reading

Since our garden can only feed us partially at the moment, we signed up for "Beachgreens" a couple of months ago. Beachgreens is a Long Beach, CA based company that delivers sustainable, organic produce direct from local Southern and Central California farmers to your residence or workplace. It's super convenient,... Continue reading

Not long ago, our backyard was a sparse landscape. Some basic furniture, a lonely rescued palm tree and a few hand-made, but empty raised vegetable beds. In less then two months, our boring backyard has been transformed into a vegetable oasis. We filled the planter boxes with seven different varieties... Continue reading

This headboard was put together about 2 years ago, when I couldn't find anything this simple with natural, canvas fabric. Everything back then was brown or black faux leather. Not my style... Now, you can find a piece like this everywhere: Crate & Barrel, Restoration Hardware, Overstock, you name it.... Continue reading

We have this messy gap between the fence and our concrete walkway. Leaves and dirt constantly gets stuck. So I wedged a bunch of river rocks in between the fence and walkay. And since I've had the rocks laying around in the garage, I didn't have to buy a thing.... Continue reading

Well, we've got a little delayed with the bathroom. The reglazing of the beige tile had to be pushed back due to the possibility of a leak behind the tiles. Thankfully, this was just a false alarm. No leak, no problems. The reglazing is happening as we speak. In the... Continue reading

While still in the middle of our bathroom remodel, more on that soon, I've been making all kinds of plans for our backyard. It started with my inspiration for the raised vegetable beds and now I have arrived at the fire pit and bench area with more refined ideas. There... Continue reading

In general, I'm trying to avoid the neon trend more than I'm trying to follow it. However, these items got me actually a little bit excited about it. T-shirt ( basicfrenchonline.com ), Nail polis ( essie.com ), necklace ( Is was + will be ), toms ( toms.com ) Continue reading

Inspired by Kika Reicherts blog post about chairs dipped in color, I gave my old kitchen chairs a little makeover. My husband found the originally salmon colored chairs in an alley one day. I briefly deglossed them, mixed the green color out of leftover paint and brushed on the new... Continue reading
