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 continue to show you some of our favorites … 5 things that truly made us happy in the great big world of design this month. This has proven to be a great way for us to share sneak peeks into projects that are in the works (but not quite ready to show in their entirety), flashbacks of projects from the past, and highlight an interior or event vendor that deserves recognition. Enjoy!

#1: This celebration! Our blog, business, and brand have come a long way since the very beginning, but it is always fun to look back! Six years ago, we celebrated our blog’s first birthday (as seen in our post, A Blog Birthday Party) with a really festive and fun party. It was a great day that was filled with spending time with friends who support what we do, crafting birthday cards, and eating lots of treats. (Written by: Tami)

#2: This sneak peek! Things are really starting to heat up at our Modern with Antiques construction site. This gorgeous marble backsplash and countertop was installed last week in their kitchen, and the cabinetry is going to be silver leafed this coming week. It is going to be fabulous and we can’t wait to see how it all turns out! (Written by: Lauren)


#3: This set design! As some of you might know, my twin toddlers do some filming from time to time. They worked this week on a short film for a good cause, and I sat in awe thinking about how these set designers need to think out every detail of every space they design. A creative process that takes artistic talent and is pretty inspiring! (Written by: Lauren)

#4: This vendor! We got all of the marble slabs for the Modern with Antiques home project from Tristone and Tile. This gorgeous set of Panda White slabs is going to be installed next in the client’s master bathroom and is sure to make a huge statement. Everyone at Tristone and Tile is incredible to work with, they have a beautiful showroom, and I can’t wait to work with them again. (Written by: Lauren)

#5: This magical place! I literally get chills thinking about the day Lauren and I took this photo as this was the day we got to introduce our families to one of our favorite places on Earth (Gindling Hilltop Camp … clap, clap). A few weeks ago, this summer camp celebrated its 50th year and we went to Malibu to reunite with our counselors, friends, and campers from our days at camp. As an event planner, I know how much time, energy, and work went into planning an event for over 400 alumni to attend. The staff and committee did an absolutely perfect job and even came up with solutions for the fact that it was the hottest day of the year so far. We truly cannot wait to send our kids to this camp and have them experience what we did many years ago! (Written by: Tami)

We plan to share our “Favorite Five” for the month of August on the 31st, and of course will be sharing what’s inspiring us for the month ahead on the first Friday of the month. See ya soon!
