It’s the end of the month, and we are extremely grateful for all of the design challenges and experiences that have come our way. Today, we have decided to try out a new feature on our blog (with a not so new name). We have used “Favorite Five” in the past to refer to some of your favorites … what has been highly liked on social media. Now we get the chance to show you some of our favorites … 5 things that truly made us happy in the great big world of design this month. Also a way for us to share sneak peeks into projects that are in the works but not quite ready to show in their entirety. Enjoy!

#1: These doors! You know that feeling when you get inspired by a concept, bring in all of the right people to execute it properly, and then finally (after what feels like forever) you get a glimpse at the finished product? Take a look back at our post, Under Construction: Modern With Antiques Entry, and you will see how far we have truly come with these doors. There is still so much left to do, but in the end we know they will be beyond gorgeous! 

#2: This location! Hotel ballrooms are glamorous and garden settings are gorgeous, but nothing beats planning a wedding where you grew up … Summer camp! We have known this couple forever and cannot be happier for them to finally say “I do” at one of our most cherished places on Earth. A boho vibe and a stunning ocean view makes this a favorite for sure! 

#3: This color choice! We love it when our clients make brave choices. Many times being bold means choosing bright colors or a funky piece of furniture, but in this case going ultra girly was a big statement as well! So far our client’s office has been painted a soft shade of pink, and it looks amazing. Until it is finished being filled with all of the things a girl needs when doing her work, we leave you with this inspiration photo … Stay tuned!

#4: This vendor! Four years ago, we first worked with Wini of LA Circus, and our lives have been forever changed! She has helped us to expand our minds in the area of prop rentals and has encouraged us to think outside the box. It turns out they are so much more than just a place to get old circus train cars, tents, and ticket booths for our annual Halloween project (as seen on our post, Haunted Circus). We can’t wait to come up with a theme for this year’s event, to visit Wini, and see what she has in store!

#5: This man! We have mentioned many times before on this blog that our father, Jackie, is a truly talented individual (Custom woodwork is his specialty.) We have seen him create beautiful spaces for many many people over the years and have even gotten the opportunity to work with him on more recent projects. This time (although he has a lot going on with work), he is creating a new look for his own home. We know that he has been putting off this project for years in order to help others see beauty in their space and feel like he deserves to be doing something for himself. Isn’t the brick in this inspiration picture gorgeous? … Just a hint at what’s to come!

Let us know what you think of our new post … Simply click the number next to the speech bubble icon below to leave a comment. All feedback is welcome and will be taken very seriously. We hope to bring back our “Favorite Five” for the month of April on the 26th, and of course will be sharing what’s inspiring us for the month ahead on the first Friday of the month. See ya soon!
