Parachute Home Pop-Up on Abbot Kinney

Parachute Home is one of my favorite local companies. They make quality bedding basics that look both simple and completely luxurious. 

They invited me to design their summer pop-up at Milkmade on Abbot Kinney. It was a small space that filled the storefront window, along with an outdoor "garden" area that had to be stowed away every night when the shop closed. 

The trick was to balance the Parachute brand (along with their summer motif) with the hosting business, Milkmade. 

Our greatest shopping resources for styling the scenes ended up being Etsy, Urban Outfitters, Zingara Trading Company, and Wayfair.

It turned out wonderfully, and the pop-up enjoyed even more success than projected.

Thank you, Parachute (and Milkmade) for having me!

The New Bohemians Book Release Party

I am so inspired by Justina Blakeney-- this woman kills it at EVERYTHING. I love Justina (the woman AND her work), and I was so thrilled to be invited to her new book release party in LA, sponsored by One Kings Lane. (I even got my hairs cut for the occasion.) I brought home a signed copy of The New Bohemians, and it's completely gorgeous. It's now one of the best parts of our Cottage.

Congrats and thank you, Queen Justina!
