Best of 2016

This truly was the Best of 2016! Not only were we incredibly ecstatic with our wins, but it was equally rewarding seeing our {found} pieces beautifully styled at the historic Alexandria Ballroom. Think old Hollywood with rich tones, luxurious linens and lush greenery. It was definitely a night to remember. See more gorgeous styling by Trina Schmidt Weddings and Events over on California Wedding Day.

Modern Bat Mitzvah

Great things come together when you have the talented Wilmarose Orlanes designing a modern Bat Mitzvah at the Lombardi House. After seeing these pretty pics by Caca Santoro, we can’t help but have major tablescape envy. Our domaine tables are beautifully dressed with colored glassware to mimic a California sunset and it’s just perfection. See more over on 100 Layer Cakelet.

Hello December

Going into the new season (and the start of a new month), I wanted to share some of my most recent finds.  I’ve been having fun with bolder, richer colors and as always searching for pieces with perfect patina.  Take a look and let me know what  you think!

PS- Those iron gates at the bottom.  Ya, they open and close.

Lindsay + Derek

It all started with a swipe to the right. The happy couple met on Tinder, went on four dates and got engaged after thirteen months. Lindsay, the bride + interior designer, worked side by side with Tessa Lyn Events to design the perfect mid-century modern wedding. It has everything you would want from a stunning backdrop to a bold ceremony aisle. See more beautiful pictures by Elizabeth Messina over on Style Me Pretty.
