INTERIOR INSPIRATION : ART ON DISPLAY.



My favorite homes tend to show personality through their art choices and how they display them. I have never been a huge fan of bare walls. Art- be it vintage kitsch, souvenir postcards, illustration prints, or kid's watercolor paintings- makes a great home in my eyes.

TEN IMAGES OF INSPIRATION : A SMALL GATHERING.



Before moving down to Los Angeles, I was known for throwing two big themed parties every year: one in the summertime and one around the winter holidays. Now that we have downsized to a condo instead of a house and know much less people down here than in Portland, we are thinking of throwing together a much smaller gathering. I have been searching online for small party inspiration- I'm now quite excited about planning a cozy winter event in our cozy little home with our old and new California friends.
