Happy Saturday! Who’s excited for the Oscars tomorrow night? Or I should say tomorrow afternoon. Yes, the red carpet arrivals start at about 3pm here in California… can’t wait!

Well, today I’m continuing my series on Featured Local Designers and I’m happy to be sharing the work of Brooke Wagner Designs.

Brooke’s work captures the comfortable, laid-back California style that we all love. The homes she designs are timeless and fresh. Here’s a look at her Barmouth Project here in Newport Beach

Check back soon for more “Featured Designers” this month

where I'll be sharing the work of my favorite local designers.

the cutest ideas for babies & toddlers

When my children were younger, they always enjoyed Eric Carle’s colorful and adventurous books, especially The Very Hungry Caterpillar and The Very Busy Spider

We must have read those books a thousand times, and we always enjoyed the little adventure it took us on while turning those little pages.

And now Eric Carle’s brilliant illustrations are brought to life with a line of adorable and fun rugs that are perfect for any little boy or girls bedroom and would be a great inspiration piece for a playroom. In a collaboration with Home Dynamix, the Eric Carle Rug Collection features the timeless Eric Carle characters that’s we’ve all grown to love, with the bright graphic maps and alphabet images that are as cute as they are educational.

I’m expecting a couple of little visitors to my house very soon…

So, I've got this cute rug all set up
next to out basket of toys...

These would also be fun in a 
preschool classroom or Sunday school room.

Check out the whole selection here:

And if a little one you love is having a birthday
I just found these adorable 

So sweet!

Thank you to the Eric Carle Collection for sending me this product to review. 

The opinions expressed in this post are truly my own.

One of my favorite designers these days is
super hippy-chic, Malibu gal, Amber Lewis.

Every room she designs is beautiful and has
that effortless, lived-in look.

I love how she combines old and new to achieve her signature
laid-back beachy California look.

So today, just for fun,

I’m sharing my favorite Amber Lewis kitchens

Stay tuned for more “Featured Designers” this month

ciao sunday

Just sharing a few of my favorite ciao
goodies that I’ve seen around the web

Running errands has never been this fun…
now that I have my new pink and cheery

Ciao Bella espadrilles to kick around in!

Made by one of my faves, Soludos,
they’re so comfy!

which have now replaced wearing other plain flats altogether!

These are sold out in several stores,
but they’re still available here.

And speaking of ciao,
which is what this whole post is about, lol

You may recognize gray malin’s breathtaking photography from seeing his work in magazines,
in amazing coastal homes and on so many blogs.

Here’s another one of favorite Gray Malins… 

This print is cute too! Found here.

Pottery Barn Kids has these adorable wooden
Ciao signs in lots of fun colors… 

 I have this fun Kate Spade "Ciao Bella" pillow on order,
as we speak… so pretty!!

found here and here.
