| BOOKS + KIDS | when the greats like #TomFord & #Dior live side by side to the #kids in our lives that remind us all that we are grateful for. #Family #challenges make for moments like these to appreciate all that we have. #gaileguevara breaths deeply. There is something to be said that no matter how the world moves forward with #technology there are #movements #between our #fingertips as we turn the pages of great #books, nostalgia & scent of words set our imagination to a place worth remembering (at Koret lofts)

Top of my list for form meets function is the #StepLadder designed by #KarlMalmvall for #DesignHouseStockholm available through @vanspecial ~ #gaileguevara thoughtful design looks just as good when not in use and is art on the wall #wood meets white  (at Koret lofts)

| DOGS at HOME | soon to be published again is a project that holds a special piece of heart. #Teddy makes home next to #Griff  on #kentwoodfloors and our first beginnings of working with #Jeff martinjoinery #zoepawlak #vanspecial #fabulousfurniture #salarihomes #providehome to our first #ikeahack kitchen to making every decision with fabric blond dog friendly #throwback #throwbackthursday makes for a perfect reminder that the ones we love can make all the difference in how we make home including our furry little best friends. This one project gets the most questions and inquiries I’ve ever had. Interesting to see what people want to know, tells me a little more about what people are looking for. Forever grateful to have worked with a wonderful team and the most amazing client.

| WATER + COAL | making what looks beautiful also be good for you. One of my favourite products in the market comes from London based #SortofCoal a collection of product I first came across while visiting New York. The all natural water filter using white charcoal based on the #cradletocradle principle. A natural filter for both water and air, borrowed from ancient #Japanese traditions. As a task to remove all plastics from our home including the waste of plastic Brita filters. Make what you put in your #home also the gift that nurtures you. #gaileguevara makes home simple yet with purpose to show my parents how pairing back doesn’t mean compromise, it is the very opposite of living with only what you want & use #vscocam (at Koret lofts)

| DESIGN + ORDER | one if my all time favourite art directors & design curators is #FabionBaron. You may be familiar with his work in iconic fashion but perhaps not realize he is also the brilliant mind behind the packaging design of another favourite @officialcorzo. For those of you who know me well, I have an admiration for beauty found in objects. The attention of detail that in the design of the #corzo bottle is an object too beautiful to be thrown into recycling. 9 bottles of memories shared with the family at Boneta now transformed into bookshelf oil & vinegar vessels we now cook every day meals with. When design goes further to provide more then it’s intended purpose and creates originality within order, this is brilliant. Love the #design of this #bottle, originally with stone & cork tops perfectly paired with a rectangular glass vessel. Perfect proportions. Not to mention the #tequila that once occupied these bottles is one of our favourites for sipping at the table. If only I could purchase the bottles for projects without implying drinking as means of finding the perfect bottles for the kitchen pantry or bar display. (at Koret lofts)

| MOVING | is the one thing I hate doing in contrast to what I do for clients. My #OCD inside can’t hold back so #unpacking becomes such a time bomb for opening #Pandora’s box to a week of playing #Tetris. Yet little Teds reminds me how much making home is so important. He’s not sure where to be with all the #frogboxes and movement. Thank god for #frogboxes, saying good bye to 305 our home for the last 6 years. Making home while saving my parents home sheds light on how important it is to live a less disposable life. Evan with how much I hate clutter, purging is  a week long journey of setting new and ensuring we only keep what we use and surround ourselves with what we love. First on the list - making teddy feel at home. Dog ✔️♥️✔️- now where are the new & old house keys?! Ugh  (at Koret lofts)
