happy friday + modernism week! 13 Jan 2017

Modernism House

Ah! I'm so excited to share that next month I'll be designing the West Guest Bedroom at The Christopher Kennedy Compound: Modernism Week Show House for Modernism Week in Palm Springs! If you're not familiar with Modernism Week, the annual event celebrates and fosters appreciation of mid-century architecture and design, as well as contemporary thinking in these fields, by encouraging education, preservation and sustainable modern living as represented in Palm Springs.

Each year for Modernism Week, The Christopher Kennedy Compound re-imagines a classic Palm Springs property, using the best of modern of technology and bringing together about 20 of the country's most prominent design talents...and I'll be one of the designers this year! The Christopher Kennedy Compound is published in Traditional Home and California Homes magazines, and raises approximately $100,000 for architectural preservation, education, and neighborhoods in Palm Springs. Here's a look at the guest bedroom we're designing...

Oh Joy Guest Bedroom Design for Modernism House

I can't show you the whole thing YET, but this gives you an idea of the overall vibe—whimsical, colorful, and chic! And the best part is, the home owner is Kelly from Kelly Go Lightly! It's always fun to create a space for someone whose style you love and admire. For those of who heading to Modernism Week or who want to visit the house, you can read more about the house right here and buy tickets to see the house right here!

three ways to style a vase... 31 Oct 2016

three ways to style a vase

You might think..."OK, I have a vase, so I'll put flowers in it." Yes, that is the ideal use for a vase. BUT...what do you do with a vase when it's not filled with flowers? You can fill them with other fun things like desk essentials. Or, you can use them and style them in other ways that gives them function without flowers, too. Here are a few ideas...

three ways to style a vase

1. Book Ends. As long as the vase is sturdy and won't tip easily, use them as book ends to spruce up what would otherwise be a plain bookshelf.

Props shown: Target bookshelf, Target elephant figurine, Target canisters, Oh Joy for Target OMG vase.

2. Sculptural Decor. If you choose the right kind of vase, it looks cool on its own even when it's not filled. Set it out on an end table, dining table, window sill, or anywhere.

Props shown: Paul Octavious print, Aelfie rug, Oh Joy for Target OK vase, Oh Joy for Target end table, Oh Joy for Target pillow, chair from Sunbeam Vintage, planter by Virginia Johnson.

3. Hold Faux Flowers. I'm a big advocate for faux flowers when you can find some you really like. Like not flowers that are supposed to look real, but ones that are obviously faux and you can embrace their non-realness. That way, you can keep them in a vase for however long you want and feel good about it! 

Props included: Ai Modern credenza, Target geo burst, Pehr Design table runner, Wee Society print, vintage plastic flowers, paper flowers by Paper Sandwich, and Oh Joy for Target YAY vase.

I couldn't be more happy that it's Friday! We took the kids to Disneyland mid-week for Ruby's birthday, and while that should seem like a nice mid-week break, I am beat from it ;P This weekend, we're celebrating both of my girls' birthdays with a joint party, and I'm going to see Gwen Stefani in concert the same night! (Wait, did I just say I needed some rest?! Ha.)

Have a great weekend, all! See you back here on Monday...

Oh Joy for Target / Summer Collection

Yay! It's here! Our new Oh Joy for Target summer home decor collection launches online and in all Target stores this Sunday, June 19thWith summer in the air, I was inspired by bright florals, juicy citrus trees, and thoughts of being by the ocean all summer long. From glasses and bowls to heart-shaped platters and a super fun bar cart, these were designed with summer entertaining in mind. The pieces are perfect for backyard parties but also for casual indoor gatherings for the rest of the year, too.

The collection will be online and in all Target stores (on an endcap in the home decor section). This is a limited collection for the summer only and will not be restocked. Last season, some of our most popular items sold out in the first couple weeks, so once it's gone, it's really gone.

P.S. Oh, and tomorrow, June 17th, I'll be sharing a more detailed look at ALL of the products LIVE on Facebook Live at 9am PST and Periscope at 9:30am PST. Come watch it in real time if you can so I can answer your questions! But both will be available to reply later if you can't watch live ;)
