Well-Traveled Eclectic

“Displaying things from your travels is always a great way to give your home a personality. The mirrored elephant is a treasured piece from my trip to Thailand. I was also drawn to the silver deer heads for modern lines. The Moroccan stool adds warmth and an old-world feel for the perfect conversation starter. Pairing that with the Moroccan, a more contemporary piece makes for a unique blend of classic and modern.”

Beach Chic

“I am always inspired by living in the South Bay, and the ocean is a constant source of beauty and innovation. I also enjoy finding vintage pieces throughout my design trips. I love the organic lines and reflective layers of the Sequoia console from Z Gallerie. I wanted to mix in natural elements from the sea with the coral. The abstract sailboat art was a vintage find, and I love the colors and geometric lines.”
