Springtime Party Styling

While I am fortunate to help clients turn houses into unique and personable homes through interior design, I am sometimes asked to style their parties and family functions making their celebrations welcoming and stylish for their family and friends. This is a huge honor to personalize a family affair down to the last flower and glass creating memories that last a lifetime. Back in April I had the pleasure of styling a confirmation party for my client Lisa's son with a springtime yellow, orange and blue color scheme. The springtime flowers were amazing on this sunny Southern California day.

The forsythia was also in the foyer in a huge blue & white vase but I don't have a photo :(

Custom table runners on the open seating tables. The open seating kept things casual & social.

We started the party off with a signature drink awaiting guests... a refreshing mojito with a cute colored straw

Retail Therapy: Jennifer Hall Showroom Opening

The La Cienega Design Quarter in Los Angeles has a new showroom to add to it's prestigious list and I couldn't be happier that it is the showroom of my dear friend Jennifer Hall. Hailing from Dublin, her showroom is infused with the sophistication and charm that she embodies. You can find an excellent collection of unique items including sofas, chairs, tables, lighting, architectural elements and accessories.  Her showroom is part of larger showroom called The Collection. Tonight is her grand opening celebration and I am looking forward to toasting my dear friend on her success!

Summer Love: Missoni By the Sea

I don't know anyone who wouldn't want a fantastic summer holiday frolicking by the sea in something  from Missoni. Every vacation wardrobe needs a little Missoni in it to be complete. After hitting up the LA Missoni Friends & Family sale last week looking for a new bikini, I ended up getting an adorable tunic that I will live in all summer in LA. To get the best out of your Missoni bikinis, it's advised not to swim in them. It sounds ridiculous but they lose shape when they get wet often.  Look for the Missoni Mare (italian for sea) collections to find all of the bathing suits and caftans for your summer holiday. These are some of my favorites from Missoni that are in stores now. Which is your favorite? I cannot get enough of all of the color!

I couldn't find this in either LA Missoni stores so go to Net-a-Porter.com in the link below

Sit down for these next items all you Missoni addicts! I just purchased a pair of these fantastic Missoni Havaianas and LOVE them. Match made in heaven! They are sold out on the Havaiana web site but if your in LA, both Beverly Hills and Malibu just got them in stock yesterday but they are going fast.  I was told that the LA Nordstrom Grove MIGHT get them.  For Angela Missoni, “Brazil and Italy have many things in common, that’s why the partnership with Havaianas. The idea of a meeting between two icons and two cultures has inspired the concept and colours of the designs, from the packaging to the flip flops”, said the italian designer.

Or dry yourself off with a Missoni beach towel - 
LA Missoni stores carry these Missoni Morgan beach towels or go to artedona.com
