collaborating with Romantic Homes...

I’m so happy to announce my collaboration with Romantic Homes Magazine. I’ve written and photographed this vintage inspired tablescape exclusively for Romantic Homes, and you’re invited to check the whole story out here.

I collected some of my favorite tableware, 

just for this unique table setting…

Take the guesswork out of creating a similar upscale look 
for your guests with five simple steps.

For all the latest tablescapes and more,

I’d love to hear your plans for 
entertaining on the 4th of July…

the "love american style" tablescape

an easy to set and fun patriotic table

Finding this fun picnic-inspired throw was my inspiration for my latest red, white and blue tablescape. It reminds me of an old-fashioned beach blanket, and casually laid on the table, it creates an instant coastal mood.


Paired with another striped element, these “love” napkins are the perfect finishing touch for the table. I call this look “Love American Style!”

Vibrant tulips set in individual glass bottles are the shining stars to this patriotic striped look. More details coming soon...

P.S. I’m having my treasured morning cappuccino while writing this… and wishing you a glorious day ahead!

such a great week...

sharing my favorite ideas for summer entertaining

Decorating for parties and gatherings is always a fun activity, and as the start of summer approaches, the opportunities for throwing a fun soiree also increase.

Why not take the opportunity to ramp up the red, white and blue décor for Father’s Day? It gives you a head start for the 4th of July and patriotic décor always makes friends and family feel welcomed.

This week, I’ve been engaged in creating several fun tablescapes that are perfect for summer and are quite easy to replicate.

Finishing touches are mostly done for my garden shed, so I thought I’d take a few romantic shots of it styled with one of my favorite new acquisitions

this pretty vintage chair that I found at the Vintage Flea Market in Old Town Tustin. It’s the perfect shade of soft turquoise and looks so pretty in the garden.

The Tustin Flea Market is held every fourth Sunday of the month, and it’s small enough to walk through in an hour, so after that you’ll still have plenty of time to catch a yummy Sunday brunch nearby and think about all the fun nostalgic things you saw (and maybe purchased) at the flea market.

To round out the week, I have some exciting news, but it’s top secret for the moment. I’ll share details about it soon, but for now here’s a little peek…  

Happy Father’s Day!

blue and white with a hint of red


I’m definitely feeling the red, white and blue vibe today and playing around with some cute new bowls and a few flowers from the garden. Do you have ever have ideas for themes pop in your head? I definitely had a vision and luckily I found all the missing pieces I was looking for! 

A trip to Home Goods can quite literally get the party started! I found the white bowls, blue and white flower pot and a set of five vintage-inspired vases for the center of the table there this week and so this whole patriotic look came together pretty easily.

happy flag day!

the duchess of essex

It's been a month since the Newport Harbor Home Tour, but I’m still thinking about this amazing modernly-vintage family home on Essex Lane. Pardon the pun in the title of this post, but designer Ashley Clark has created a swoon-worthy home for her family, and deserves the a little bit of a royal title, haha. It’s just a play on words with Meghan Markle’s title of Duchess of Sussex.

Ashley combined her favorite vintage pieces to fill her modern Scandinavian-style farmhouse. With traditional finishes and lots of modern features, this home was without a doubt the fan favorite on the home tour this year. Here’s a peek at some of my favorite rooms and vignettes from home tour day...
