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 first consultation project! A little over a month ago, we sent out an email describing our new consultation service we are offering, and since we have already completed the consultation portion of our first one. This particular client, wanted to update their office space that also doubles as a playroom for their son in their converted garage, and was looking for a bit of a mid-century modern design with lots of storage. This is the layout that the client has selected moving forward. Can’t wait to really get this space under way! (Written by: Lauren)

Love Boat

#2: This year’s gala! For the last two years, we have been involved in helping to plan a very special gala event. Not only is this a really nice opportunity each year for friends and colleagues to get together, but it is fundraising for a very important cause. However, we like to keep the themes light and make sure everyone just has fun! This year’s date has been set, the theme has been picked, and we don’t want anyone to miss the boat! (Written by: Tami)

#3: This inspiration! I started a new project this month with a client out in Westlake Village. Have any of you ever been to Sherwood Country Club because this house reminds me of that property! I have already put together most of the inspiration board to guide this project in the right direction, and I believe the demo is almost complete for the different areas we are remodeling. This picture is one of my favorites in the bunch. As I was looking on Pinterest to find images to show the clients of how their space will look transformed, I found this picture which very closely represents the exact idea we had when converting their staircase. I love when that happens! It makes it so much easier for the client to visualize what their finished space will look like. (Written by: Lauren)

#4: This vendor! We were so excited to work with Mr. Bartender last weekend on our Tacos and Tequila Birthday Party! Let’s be honest … With this theme there’s not much more of an important detail than the drinks (Well, tacos too of course!), and this amazing vendor was right there with us the whole way. Planning the signature cocktails, providing a shopping list for my client, and overall amazing service the night of the party. What more can you ask for!? (Written by: Tami)

#5: This master bathroom update! I have been scouring stores for the last year and a half to find the right carpet runner to go in my master bathroom. I had a photo on my inspiration board with an awesome bohemian black and white runner and knew this was the right touch to add to my bathroom to give it just the right amount of character. I didn’t believe it, but this was one of the hardest things to find as I really wanted to find something that was vintage (or at least looked vintage), and they simply do not make them in black and white. Not in the right size either! During one shopping trip to HD Buttercup, I found these small rugs that I fell in love with. I brought them home, interlaced the tassels between them, and I got the runner of my dreams! I also added a large black basket to the other side of my bathroom for another bohemian touch and a little extra storage! (Written by: Lauren)
