Time for another micro makeover!
I found these iron chairs at the Long Beach flea market years and years ago. I can’t remember exactly, but let’s say they were $100 for the pair. They were purple and pretty beaten up, but had great lines.
With a little love and inspiration from my favorite Casamidy, I was able to get these chair living room ready!
Take a look at the transformation (below).

Spring days call for Spring Gray!
I keep spotting rooms, architecture, and home accessories with gray accents — and I just love how the typically-drab color is being used to make other colors (including white!) pop.
Incorporating gray can keep your space sleek, neutral, and of course, oh-so cozy!
See some of my favorite spaces for inspiration (below)!

Time for a little spring organizing!
As a fan of cozy spaces, I’m often searching for ways to find extra room for storage in every area of the house. What I’m finding is that it’s possible to find homes for all your unsightly belongings with furniture or bins that you’ll want to show off.
My first tip would be to get rid of anything you do not need or use regularly. There is no reason to hang on to anything that isn’t adding value to your life. Haven’t worn that sweater in a year? Two years?? Donate it. Once you’ve narrowed it down and are only looking to store what you absolutely need, find chic ways to incorporate it into your decor!
Take a look (and shop!) some of my favorite finds for easy home storage that are pleasing to the eye (below)!
Back to reality!
I just returned home from a much-needed weekend getaway celebrating my sister DS’s birthday with her and her friend MC! It was incredible… massages, facials, pool time, tacos, margaritas, whale watching, an art walk in San Jose, lovely dinners, and most importantly, lots of laughs! Just what the doctor ordered!
This was my third or fourth trip to Las Ventanas in Los Cabos, Mexico over the last 12 years… my sis and I have fallen in love with it! From the great service, stunning setting right on the Baja peninsula, and beautiful decor — I was in heaven!
Wow, I cannot believe I just said that! The beginning of this year is just flying by. I hope you all are having a wonderful start to 2018!
To start off the spring, I’ve been thinking about how to incorporate metal bed frames in various ways — so I’ve collected some of my favorites for inspiration!

Slowly but surely my room is coming together!
As you probably have experienced, picking out a rug is truly a process! For my bright master bedroom, I went back and forth between having a rug… having a colorful rug… or having no rug at all! Ultimately I decided on this muted grey COCOCOZY ring rug — and I couldn’t be happier!
I know, I know — straying away from a Moroccan or vintage worn Persian style rug is a design risk, but I’m choosing to step outside the box! This is me in 2018!
It truly is the little things that make life happy.
Every morning when I wake up, walk down the stairs and see this morning light in my living room, I am filled with such great joy! It’s easy to start the day with a positive mind when greeted with such a cheerful and bright glow.
The past few years have been a roller coaster for me (to say the least) — and I’m feeling extremely grateful to have found this Spanish style Beverly Hills house after making the difficult decision to sell my tiny little cottage in the Hollywood Hills.
The radiance in this special spot of my “home for now” reminds me to embrace all the newness that comes with this next chapter!
Welcome to my guest bedroom!
I absolutely love having a special place for my visitors to stay — and I want to make sure they feel right at home while in town!
My intention was to create a warm and inviting room by having attention to detail but ultimately keeping things simple. So far I’ve gotten the stamp of approval from my mother and best friend — so that’s how I know the transformation was a success!
What better way to celebrate Valentine’s Day than with some online shopping?!
Here are a few products I’m obsessed with right now — not to mention, a couple of really awesome sales! No rhyme or reason here, just sharing as I find. Enjoy!
Things are coming together over here in Beverly Hills!
Many of you may remember my old patio from my tiny cottage in Hollywood Hills — and now I’m taking elements of that space and incorporating it into my new oasis!
Welcome to my personal sweet spot… the upstairs patio of my home that is nestled in the hills and surrounded by beautiful palm tree views. An instant calm!
