Sikes So Cal

We’re more than halfway through remodeling our home which means the fun tasks, like selecting finishes and picking out furniture, have finally begun! I’ve been busy gathering inspiration and couldn’t help but fall in love with interior designer Mark D. Sikes‘ Hollywood Hills home. I love the California sensibility with its crisp palette, blue and white accents, and the occassional accented wall.

River Run

For me, summer isn’t complete without a handful of weekend trips to the river. I’ve been visiting the South Fork of the Yuba River, where California gold was once discovered, for over 10 years. A scorching heatwave recently brought me to the river’s pristine waters and deep swimming holes, where I sported my new red Miu Miu sunnies for the first time. They were quite the departure from the usual black framed sunglasses I’m used to but oh, how pretty they looked glittering against the shimmering water! If you decide to make the worthwhile trip to the Yuba, from San Francisco, don’t forget to pack a chic pair of sunglasses, a colorful swimsuit, comfortable sandals, and a small bag for bug spray, sunscreen, water, snacks, and a camera. It’s really all you need to survive an afternoon at the river.
