COS x The Gentlewoman Glimpses of the Future

Los Angeles is known for many things… and like most major cities, it has its share of iconic buildings. Having always been a fan of architecture and design, I’ve had the good fortune to see quite a few of LA’s major architectural moments in person. However, LA is a vast wonderland and especially living down in Orange County (about an hour south), it’s hard to be able to see EVERYTHING. So, when the kind folks at COS

Sometimes it’s hard to visualize how something will look in your home when it’s just displayed on a shelf in a store. I guess that’s why many retailers create “environments” to help give customers a better idea of how the products will work in the right context. The folks at The Future Perfect have taken that concept one step further with the launch of “Casa Perfect” earlier

Living Room Update 2017: Christopher Wynter for West Elm

This post is in collaboration with West Elm Getting the new couch has kick started a bigger refresh of my entire living room situation. The previous couch was a light color, so I had chosen a deep indigo colored rug to contrast. Now that my couch is darker, the indigo wasn’t working, and I felt this was a great opportunity to try a different approach. Rugs are a great way to define a space, but they can also be
