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 beyond gorgeous starting point! This month, we started not one but two big renovation projects. The first one is a new build which the client wants to bring her own flair to. We will be swapping out countertops, lighting, hardware, and even some of the architectural details to really make it extra special and a true showstopper. We have three weeks until her move-in date and we’ve hit the ground running! (Written by: Lauren)

#2: These in a BOX minis! For the last couple of months, we have been rolling out our line of “in a BOX” products slowly and have introduced you to our regular size BOX and our “in a BOX mini” … A few more options coming soon! This mini option allows clients to spread lots of joy by purchasing multiples of the same design and distributing amongst Zoom “party guests” or gifting to a variety of other special people. Have some amazing teachers you wanna give a little somethin’ to? We have created these Before and After School BOXes to let all of your kids’ teachers know that you know they are working hard behind the scenes to get this school year started off right. Did you know that most of your favorite bottles of alcohol now come in mini size? We can plan a mini BOX around any of your favorites. Contact us for more information at (Written by: Tami)

#3: This inspiration photo! This is the second renovation project we started this month. For this one, the timeline is totally different. We are just in the initial phase of architectural drawings, and we will probably break ground some time next summer. I love that I get to be a part of the decision making from the beginning as seeing the finished product will be that much more rewarding at the end. Can’t wait for you to see how we take their 80’s design into modern day time.  (Written by: Lauren)

#4: This vendor! It really felt great last weekend to get back into the events space! After months of barely leaving my home, I needed so badly to do a set up. Placing each detail truly is my happy place, and I had so much fun sourcing each of these pieces of lounge furniture and pillows too from Found Rental Co. They have gorgeous options … So many of them! We highly recommend! (Written by: Tami)

#5: This favorite destination! If you have been with us for a while, you know that since we were little we have been going to Palm Springs at the end of every summer. Luckily, the way we live while on this particular “vacation” is not so different from quarantine at home. We still eat our meals in and see very few people, and we are so grateful we were still able to go this year with everything going on. Also, man was it amazing to be somewhere other than home! We each took one of the nights to plan a meal for the family (and took it very seriously planning every detail from appetizers to what alcoholic beverage we would consume). Otherwise how did we fill our few days away? We spent all day in the pool, and played games after we put the kids to bed at night. What a perfect getaway! (Written by: Tami)
