Pool Float Roundup

I know. I know. This seems like a bit of a bizarre post, especially for an interior designer. But as the weather warms and we spend more time at home and in our pool, I’ve been thinking about pool floats a lot lately. My kids love floats, so we have a bunch. But I hate... Read more

Mood Board Monday: Airy Atrium

Today we are showing our airy atrium for my Norcal project. I want to anchor the space with some giant planters at each corner. And who doesn’t want a swing in an atrium? My client has this amazing set of powder coated metal art which is perfect for a bright space where color fastness is... Read more

Mood Board Monday: Colorful Kitchen

The below kitchen may look familiar to you. It maybe looks like an iteration of my own kitchen in Atlanta. The architecture may also seem familiar because it’s part of the Eichler home that I am working on in the Bay Area. I love this house and feel so honored that my clients chose me... Read more

Firepit Chair Roundup

If you follow me on Instagram you probably know that I’ve been creating a little fire pit area behind our pool. The area used to house a really icky teardrop shaped in-ground spa that was about neck-deep and only fit about 2 people. It was truly strange. We had it demolished when we renovated the... Read more

Mood Board Monday: Mad Men Lounge

Yup – another Monday, another mood board. Counting my blessings that I have a number of projects in the works and fun mood boards to show you. This is for a local project. The home is a great mid-century gem and we are switching the living and dining areas. The living room is going to... Read more

My Skincare Routine

I posted about my skincare routine a while ago but now that I’ve honed it a bit and gotten more into at-home self care with this whole quaratine thing I thought I’d give you guys a quick update. Admittedly I still like to keep it VERY simple. I’m also pretty cheap. While I’m a sucker... Read more

Quarantine Yogawear

Even before this all began, I had pipe dreams of how my ideal day would look. Shuttling the kids to school, heading to a yoga class, getting some work done – flitting around Atlanta for my design practice and ending the day with a refreshment on the patio. I am strange in that most of... Read more

Mood Board Mondays: Kids Room

Hey Friends! It’s Monday again. Do you guys have the same strange timewarp feeling going on? Its like time is passing slowly and quickly at the same time. How have we been in quarantine so long? Yet the weeks are passing by so quickly? Well in an effort to keep things fresh and interesting, we... Read more

What we’re up to

How are you all faring in this brave new world? I thought I’d pop in and give a little update. We are doing ok. Actually pretty good considering. I am used to working from home and working with clients remotely, so that hasn’t been a huge adjustment. I guess mainly it’s been dealing with the... Read more

Get the Look: Playful Chic Kids Room

Hey there, Kate Cabiltes here. I came across the holiday home tour of Rebecca Simon, Toronto based interior designer and owner of Maison Ellie Interiors on The Everymom last month. After taking the time to explore her portfolio I was impressed with her practical use of space in kids’ bedrooms and playrooms as well as... Read more
