I am so proud to present my latest rug collection.  This year I bring you COCOCOZY Color Block Rugs!  I was inspired last year when I did this post on color blocking in fashion and in the home.  Noticed the trend of using big solid blocks of color had been used on the runway or in paint colors or even drapes, but never in rugs…so I decided to change that with this amazing line of customizable rugs.  Custom wool rugs that can be delivered in as little as 45 days!

COCOCOZY assistant AC picked this lovely house tour today.  AC is from Santa Barbara and has family friends who have renovated this stunning eco-friendly Montecito Mansion.  I remember the first time I went to Montecito years ago…I didn’t know it even existed but I stopped there on my way to Santa Barbara.  I remember thinking “Where am I?  This is the most beautiful place I’ve ever seen in California.”  A town filled with multi million dollar mansions…and adorable shops…the perfect spot for this week’s house tour…

Who doesn’t love a cozy sweater?  Right?

Here in Los Angeles, any time the weather drops below 65 degrees, I am FREEZING.  I was born and raised in Southern California so I am not accustomed to climate changes! 😉

Seriously though, I have been seeing reports all around the country of knee deep snow storms and a general chill.  If you are not able to travel to a beautiful tropical warm spot to warm up, the second solution is a cozy sweater…there are a lot of good ones out there right now…here are my picks for this season.

This is the winter white tablescape I created recently.  I love setting a beautiful dinner table.  I thought I would share it with you today.  Soooo….over the holidays, many of you know, I threw a dinner party for 25 family and friends at my sis DS’s house. This is the dining table I set in honor of winter!  Someone on Instagram said this table is unrealistic…it was actually pretty easy to pull together…here’s what was involved…

Today I bring you a fabulous San Francisco mansion makeover on sale for $7.75 million dollars.  Less than two years ago, San Francisco house with a streamline profile at 1164 Fulton Street was sold for $975,000. Now, after the facelift,  the architecture seems to fit right into the Victorian style row houses San Francisco is so known for…right?  The twist is here, the facade or front of this building is 100% new.  It looked nothing like this just a year and half ago.

Here we go!  Happy New Year!  2017 here we come.

Every year about this time, I write my New Year’s Eve post.  Somewhat reflective…with lofty goals in mind. I’ve challenge myself and I always challenge you dear readers to grow.  This annual post is always a little sappy and a little wistful…but also hopeful and optimistic definitely.

This year is different.  It is all about looking forward and being doggedly optimistic.  I say bring it on 2017.  Bring it on. I am ready to conquer the world!

I literally danced my way out of 2016. I did.
