How stunning is Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi’s Beverly Hills home?! It’s the perfect mixture of old and new – with an amazing glass ping pong table in the entryway, floors made from reclaimed teak beams from China, and wonderfully eclectic art.
How can one not absolutely love a holiday that’s all about feasting around the dining table?! Food, family and friends . . . the perfect Thanksgiving trifecta. And with this scrumptious celebration just a few days away, thoughts about putting together a simple but elegant autumnal tablescape is inspiring and consuming me.
Green Village, founded by jewelry designer John Hardy and designed by his daughter Elora, is a community of sustainable and ecological houses sitting along the Ayung River in Bali. Each of the homes are made entirely of bamboo, from Bali-based bamboo and construction company Ibuku, from the window frames to the staircase, tables, chairs, floors, and even the cabinets and the walls. Did you know that with very little attention or additional resources, a bamboo shoot can become a structural column within three years and that house could stand strong for a lifetime? Honestly, amazing.

Remember when we announced we were moving into a brand new office space a few months ago? Well, we’ve officially made the move, bought a few key pieces of furniture, and compiled plenty of examples of inspiring office spaces to help us implement those essential finishing touches. We love the idea of collaging wall art, creating large mood boards, maintaining simple and clutter free desks, finding creative methods of storage, having enough table space for DIY and crafts, and installing proper lighting for all of our photographing needs. A lot of work is still ahead of us but let’s be honest, this is hands down the most exciting part. Stay tuned as we’ll be sharing the big reveal in just a couple of weeks!
It’s amazing how a staple gun, some muslin, a few gallons of chalkboard paint, and a talent for rehabilitating discarded items can bring such beauty and charm to a 19th century Brooklyn brownstone. Interior and prop stylist Hilary Robertson likes to call her technique, of turning trash cans into chandeliers and stapling muslin to a pair of ersatz French chairs, ”upholstery sauvage”. After all, one man’s trash is another’s treasure.
