This is what lazy days are all about. If you work full-time, you most likely appreciate comfort-wear involving some kind of sweats and sandals. And if not, then I’m not so sure you’re being completely honest with yourself.

The new apartment is finally starting to come together. Besides purging all unnecessary clutter, the best part about moving is bringing my favorite decor pieces into a new space and finding a completely different way for them to mingle together. It reminds me of how much these beloved items actually mean to me, whether they be sentimental or a simple reflection of my personal style.
Once my staples are comfortably settled in their new home, I love filling in the gaps with fresh accents. This kind of hunting is pure joy to me. As soon as my vision is in place, I refuse to rest until the mission is complete!
That being said, I’ve been searching for several design solutions and Kelly Wearstler keeps popping up. Her funky twist on modern chic is really catching my eye these days. Although I am not nearly as bold, Kelly’s work consistently inspires me to push the envelope.
Last month I went on my first whale watching tour. But this wasn’t just any typical boat ride – we traveled 3 hours out into Puget Sound, surrounded by the most breathtaking scenery and wildlife. I had no idea how gorgeous this place would be until we were on the water, just south of the Canadian border.
It had been raining that morning, but by the time we set out, the air was crisp and the light was perfect. I knew there was no guarantee we’d actually see Orcas, so I didn’t want to get my hopes up, but luckily, we came across an entire pod late in the afternoon. It was almost surreal to see these animals in the wild, swimming so close to us. I may or may not have shed a few happy tears.
Needless to say, I’m forever spoiled by this experience and don’t think I’ll go on another whale watching tour unless I know for a fact, I’ll see a family of Orcas pass by.
It’s officially summer, so naturally, I’m looking for every excuse to spend time outdoors. Dining al fresco is always a good idea, especially in San Diego. You just can’t go wrong with a sunny combo of all things light, fresh, citrus, and floral.

Midcentury modern design always puts me in a good mood, but Jonathan Adler‘s idea of “happy chic” is on a another level.
From pottery to home furnishings, Mr. Adler knows how to completely own a room. The way he layers funky patterns and unexpected colors inspires me to be a little more adventurous with my own home decor. It’s more about trusting your instincts in finding unique ways to create a cohesive look, rather than simply playing it safe.
As soon as we move into our new digs, I hope to experiment with different eras, play up texture, and be less cautious with my design decisions in general. Wish me luck!
