5 Ways to Make Your Home Feel Like a Fancy Hotel

Last weekend, Jordan and I left the kids and the dog with the grandparents for the first time in two years, and drove down the coast to Malibu. It was glorious. We stayed at a little hotel overlooking the beach, took walks, sipped overpriced smoothies, had dinner at my favorite restaurant, and returned home refreshed. […]

How to Host on Airbnb Like a Pro with Rockridge Casita

Recently, I decided to treat myself to a few nights at the Rockridge Casita – a charming short-term rental just five minutes away from my own home. I was craving a little solitude, and I also needed to make major progress on my next book (which is suddenly due very soon – eek!). Diana Pasquali, […]

A Simple Bedroom Makeover

When it comes to furniture layout, my bedroom has been a bit of a puzzle to figure out (so many doors and windows!). After years of sleeping in the corner next to a wall, I woke up one morning and decided it was NO LONGER ACCEPTABLE. I liked feeling cozy in a corner nook, so […]

The Best Neutral Interior Paint Colors

I’ve received so many questions about what paint colors we used in our home to create a clean and neutral aesthetic. So, I decided to track them down and create a post with links to all of them. A little backstory: In 2013, when we bought our first home, I knew I wanted to go […]

Transforming a Room with Wallpaper

If you’ve been here a while you know that we’re constantly transforming our home so it can support our changing needs. Our youngest daughter, 9-year old Emilie, inherited my old office which used to be our guest room, and we decided it was time to give her space a little refresh. With no sign of […]

The Luxury of Living Small with Laura Fenton

I was introduced to Laura Fenton, (the former lifestyle director at Parents Magazine), several years ago when she interviewed me as an expert for an organizing story. We instantly bonded over our shared interest in minimalism, home organizing, and small space living. I was thrilled to get to work with her again this year, and […]

Living Room Refresh with Spatial Soulutions

I’ve almost run out of rooms to transform, but not quite yet, Friends! You know I get restless and like to mix things up from time to time. This time I had my eye on a living room refresh. I didn’t want to break the bank investing in new furniture, so I partnered with Dany […]
