secret of domestic bliss #22... foot of the bed benches

Oh how. I am so relieved that this week is finally over. You guys would not believe how busy + overwhelmed I have been. Family, church, friends, events, blogging, work, etc.
I am so very ready to take a long, long nap...sigh.

Which brings me to my next SODB...putting shoes on your bed!
Yes, you read that right. There is such thing as shoes for the least I think so.
I can honestly say, when I look to a bedroom for inspiration, I am always drawn to the bed dressings.
Pillows are my first eye glance, I love the textures and colors pillows can bring.
My next stop is on what is at the foot of the bed.
Most people skip this spot and I think it needs more attention. The end of the bed can be the perfect place to sit, place books, blankets, letters, etc. 
It can be just what you need if you feel your bedroom is incomplete.
This weekend, if you have some extra seating around, give it a try...who knows, you might love it!

happy weekend luuuvahs!

Legends of La Cienega; my celebrities

This last weekend I really got to enjoy the Legends of La Cienega event here in LA...

Do you recognize who is in this picture with me???
Well, it's none other than the powerhouse design team Woodson + Rummerfield
who I was completely star-struck by! They are genius and the designers behind many celebrity home, including Christina Aguilera, Tori Spelling, and many more.

If you have not checked out their design work, you must go now. 
It's genius!

The events over the weekend were so amazing + jam packed with design shops full of amazing people and style. It was an oh so glamorous event.

more blissful encounters at the Design Diaries event:
Cassandra LaValle {coco + kelley} Jami Goldsmith {imagine design} Joy Cho {oh joy!}

good times!

Valentines @ the Viceroy

Sadly, the romance and the colors of Valentine's Day are long gone.
On the other hand, spring is on it's way!
The sun was in full force this weekend ( i got a great little tan), hopefully the rain stays away!
This weekend my boyfriend and I spent a romantic weekend
in Palm Springs yet again.
This time we mixed it up + spent our weekend at the VICEROY.
{My favorite designer, Kelly Wearstler's, palm springs design.}
Amazing place. Uber romantic. Modern design. Total relaxation.
I loved every minute of it. Everywhere you look, you are inspired by design.
I wanted to take pictures of it all so I could share it with my lovely readers
but my pictures do not do it justice.
Here are some I found on various travel sites on the net.
I wish you guys could see the amazingness that this hotel is in person.

Did you guys do anything different this Valentines weekend?

working for the weekend...

hope everyone is having a happy weekend!

My sister and I finally picked out her new digs in Brentwood.
She has hired me as her designer, and we got full permission to upgrade her new 
cottage rental any way we choose to, or should I say...I choose to.
(my sister and I have exact opposite taste)
(i'm dreaming it could be like the inspiration photo above)
Designer mode is kicking in and we are off to the bookstore to buy way too many
inspiring design books.
I can't wait to get started!!!

well... I kinda already did.
...been brainstorming and sketching all morning!
