{found} STYLIN’ IT UP

So excited to show a little glimpse into our world of styling up a lounge vignette with added touches of pillows and accessories. Layering these kinds of things adds so much to the simplest of vignettes. Check out how we created two completely different looks with the same furniture as the base. Let us know what you think!!

While the lounge furniture is the base for a great event environment for your guests, accessories truly take any lounge to the next level!! …Getting inspired? Look at our Details & Vessel sections of our collection for a bunch of fun accessory options!

Wanderloft …

This event was extra special to me, so forgive me for the amount of photos in this post! It was hard enough to narrow it down even to just these! When Heather from LVL asked if I would wanted to design and style the opening party for the Loft on Pine in Long Beach with my dear friend Larrissa from Inviting Occassion I was over the moon! The owner of the Loft, Mary Lallande, is also a dear friend and truly an amazing person in this industry, and in life in general. She has made the Loft on amazing new venue, and it was an honor to work with so many talented people for the opening party. Larrissa and I spent days and days making all kinds of beautiful installations for this party, and I am so excited to show off the gorgeous pictures that my hubs (Studio EMP) took of the evening. Check out even more photos on 100 Layer Cake…. 01 04 05 6.67Larrissa and I made hundreds of strands of braided strips of vintage Kantha, and upholstery piping to hang throughout the space. Clearly, less is definitely not more in our eyes :) 7.5 8.5 9.5 9.6 9.51 09 10.5 Larrissa also made hundreds of colorful yarn tassels that we incorporated throughout the design, like on these giant dream catchers…12.1 12.3Larrissa also added wood beading to our upholstery piping to mimic the vintage Moroccan wedding blankets that we used in the decor. I LOVE the way they turned out!  12.4 And this window display was one that I made for Joel’s studio and was so excited to use it for this party. We added some wood beading and sequins to this as well…12 14.4   14 15 16.5 16.6 16.8 16.9 16 17.1 17.3 17.4 17.5 19 Larrissa and I had fun setting up the backdrop for Sweet & Saucy’s dessert display…21 22.5 23.5 23 24 25.5 25.7 25.9Old brick + kantha poofs + indigo pillows = heaven.  25 26.3 26.4 26Lots of colorful lounge vignettes throughout with all of my favorite textiles… 27.1 27 28 30 31.5 31 33 34 37 38And lots and lots of indigo… 39 41 4245 46 47 48 50It was nice to cozy up the space with wall art and various pieces that are not always brought into the design for events. It adds so much… 51 52 53 55 56 58 59 61 The house was packed…huge success! 62 63

This was truly a magical evening that I feel blessed to have been a part of! Thanks for making it through this whole post!

Happy Friday!

{Find} Holiday Cheer

So excited to announce the release of our newest Look Book: {Find} Holiday Cheer!

We couldn’t be happier about this collaboration with Mary from The Loft on Pine, a brand new event venue in Long Beach. We were so excited that she was willing to let us cozy up this beautiful space like we love to do. We knew it would be the perfect canvas….don’t you agree?



As a little treat, Talmadge Lowe from Pharmacie shared a recipe for these amazing cocktails.
The Novelist
2oz Bourbon
2 oz Honey
1 oz Lime
1/2 oz Absinthe
Combine all ingredients in a cocktail shaker over ice and shake vigorously. Then strain into a coupe glass.







We hope that this holiday season you find beauty, inspiration and warmth.


Thank you to all of the following people who participated graciously to make this shoot all that I was hoping it to be. I respect you all immensely, and feel lucky to call you my friends:
