Thanksgiving is right around the corner, so we rounded up our top ten inspiration looks to decorate your table this season. Right now we’re crazy about bold pops of color and rich saturated tones. It’s so refreshing to see color making a comeback! Jewel tones like emerald green, burgundy and turquoise layered with softer hues and neutrals help create an interesting yet balanced tabletop. Happy Decorating!
For Halloween this year, we wanted to style a vignette in our showroom by using everyday items we already had access to. Halloween comes up so quickly, it’s hard to find time to decorate for this short holiday! It’s all about being creative and repurposing things around your house that don’t necessarily scream Halloween on their own. We started by choosing accessories in a traditional Halloween color palette: orange, black and white. From there we browsed for pieces that had antique and vintage characteristics hoping they would read as aged and spooky when placed in the vignette. With a bit of imagination we recreated these year-round home accessories into their mysterious Halloween alter egos.
We browsed through our showroom and found items that didn’t scream Halloween standing alone, but once we paired them up the overall vibe started to come together. Here are some props we used that you can find in your own home!
- Decorative bone beads
- Glass jugs
- Old books
- Table runners
- Candles and candlesticks
- Bins, baskets, and trunks
- Vintage glass bottles
- Yarn wrapped spools
- Towels + throws
- Antique, distressed or vintage finishes
- Fabric scraps
Today is National Dog Day so we’re making this post all about our pups! We’re sharing photos of our office dogs and a round up of our favorite stylish accessories + gear for your own dog. We love when clients want us to include their dogs in the design of their home. Right now we’re working on a doggy suite under the stairs for our Newport Coast clients, we’re even installing a chandelier (because dogs need good lighting too)!
Dorm Room Roundup! With fall move in right around the corner, it’s time to start thinking about decorating that dorm room! A few of our clients have asked us to help them out with the design of their kid’s college bedrooms, which inspired us to create a few budget friendly looks everyone can incorporate.

You already know we’re huge fans of white, but we also love using dark, rich colors to make an impact. Lately we’ve spotted a few black houses pop up throughout East Costa Mesa and we’re so excited to see people taking a walk on the dark side. It can be extremely intimidating to go all out and paint your exterior black, but when it’s done in the right way it can make a dramatic visual statement.
If you’re thinking of painting your home black but you are still on edge, we suggest breaking up the darkness with white highlighting. This can be done by using white for the trim on windows and doors to create an even balance of light and dark elements. A contrasting front door color can also help soften the bold look. In this post we shared some of our favorite black exteriors, now all we need is a client who is willing to take the plunge!
