Despite there still being a list of things I want to do to our bedroom, I really do love the space. It’s so bright and cheerful! I have a huge crush on the floor to ceiling windows- I fell in love with them the minute we walked into our loft. Don’t worry we have black out shades that come down when we sleep but the minute I wake up in the morning those shades go up. Not pictured…the sliding glass wall that opens up out onto our patio, making the bedroom an indoor/outdoor space- which is amazing during the summer months. I also love the simplicity of the room. I’m not a fan of clutter or televisions in bedrooms. Haven’t you ever heard that a happy marriage relies on not having a tv in the bedroom? HA.

With all that said there are a few things I do want to do to our bedroom…

– Paint the walls light grey. Honestly I want to paint every room light grey. To me home decor heaven is grey walls + clean lines + white + ethnic rugs + pops of colors.

– We need a beautiful piece of art above our bed. As I mentioned in another post the talented and generous photographer, Jennifer Harr sent us a landscape photograph of The Painted Hills in Oregon that I’m thinking might be perfect over our bed.

– as you can see from one of the photos above Brian has a headlamp next to his side of the bed. Sadly, this is what he has to use to read at night if I want to go to bed considering the only lighting in the bedroom is the track lighting above. The wall our bed is against isn’t large enough for two end tables and a bed. Poor Brian is camping in our bedroom! Pretty ridiculous, huh? I’m thinking we need to have two fabulous wall lamps installed on each side of the bed to remedy the situation. I will miss how cute Brian looks half-naked in a headlamp though.

– lastly, I think the space needs a bright colored ethnic rug (no surprise, right?!)

inspiration, gratitude & surprises

week 5

I’ve rather enjoyed this week. Actually, that’s an understatement…I loved this week. You know when you just feel “on”…you feel positive, creative, happy, healthy & connected to the flow of life and those around you? Rather then annoyed, frustrated, anxious & “off”? Well, I felt “on” this week and believe me, I am not gloating because my head space has been a bit touch and go recently. It’s just been a good week and I am always grateful for a good week. With all that said I’m looking forward to taking this energy into the weekend.

this weekend…

After a morning client today I am meeting my girlfriend Crystal for lunch at you guessed it…a vegetarian restaurant! Luckily she’s a “real” vegetarian, not just some “30 day challenge” pretend vegetarian, so picking the lunch spot was easy. After lunch I am visiting my girlfriend Sophie and her adorable little boys at their new home to help unpack a few boxes and take a dip in their new pool. Then I meeting Brian and a few of our friends at The Hollywood Forever Cemetery for a Spoon concert.

Saturday we have a million and one things to do around the house in the morning. We’ve. Been. Lazy. LAZZZZY. Luckily after what I am sure will be a boring morning we are yet again heading to a pool for the afternoon. This time with my mama, Loni & the lovely baby Margot. I am looking forward to seeing baby Margot float around in a pool. Really, is there anything cuter than a baby in a bathing suit? I think not.

Sunday morning Brian will probably surf and I will probably go to yoga (it’s the Sunday morning routine around here) then we are meeting his parents for get this…the annual Rib Fest at Lucques. Clearly, I agreed to this before I decided to go vegetarian for a month. I’m thinking I just eat the sides and cheer Brian on in what I am sure will be an epic display of rib consumption?

What do you have planned for the weekend??

What inspired me this week?

This weeks project 30! I just loved this line…“And the older I get the more I realize that there is no place to fall- believing there is a “place” is a very immature point of view in my estimation.” 

without my career, who will I be?

“The secret of change is to focus all your energy, not on fighting the old, but on building the new”- Socrates 

What am I grateful for this week?

The photographer, Jennifer Harr for gifting Brian and I with a one of her beautiful photographs (that I have been drooling over) It’s amazing how lovely and generous people can be.

All the amazing project 30 submissions I am getting. Seriously, I am blown away by how incredible these ladies are!

What surprised me this week?

That Frank isn’t bald. Seriously, the amount of hair he sheds on a daily basis is astounding. It’s also beyond annoying having to sweep the house every night. I’m rethinking our suede couch…BIG time.

 Frank and I found ourselves in the middle of police standoff on our walk this week. We certainly know how to time it don’t we?

That I not only like but love the show Scandal (I know, I am very late to the game). Last week I watched my first episode on netflix and it has since become an every night activity. Sometimes two episodes a night…ok and once it was three.
