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 spooky scene! Did anyone else find it hard to get into the Halloween spirit this year? My kids kept wanting to decorate, and I just couldn’t get myself into it! We finally decided on our Halloween plans, and it pushed me to get some decorations up. I love the simplicity of what we did, and it was a fun activity for all. Wishing everyone a safe and fun Halloween! (Written by: Lauren)

#2: This home tour! I got a chance last week to finally visit my client whose home I finished a while back, and have been slowly showing spaces on the blog. There’s still more to share, but this last snapshot I took on the way out the door was a cool one and a fun teaser for what’s ahead in our Modern with Antiques Home Tour. (Written by Lauren)

#3: This amazing shop! My client heard about this amazing shop called Twentieth on Beverly Blvd. and I can’t believe I didn’t know about it already! It literally has the most awesome pieces of furniture and the best lighting, and we both agree whoever does the purchasing is incredible! I snapped this cool shot in a piece of art they have there. You’ll have to visit and see it for yourself. I can’t wait to go back! (Written by: Lauren)

#4: This local vendor! As small business owners, one thing we truly pride ourselves in is supporting other local small businesses. In fact, we try to include as many gorgeous, high end, local products in the BOXes we create as possible. One of our partners, bodewell living, has made it really easy for us … This mama owned company is candle perfection, and local too! What more can we ask for! Order your custom in a BOX today with one of bodewell‘s stunning selections, and stay tuned to see what we are creating with this special collab partner for the holidays! (Written by: Tami)

#5: This Fall! Yes, it finally feels like Fall! Well, at least when it comes to the weather outside, but Halloween couldn’t be more different otherwise! My husband and I were seeking out some normalcy last weekend and decided to get out and see what the pumpkin patch had to offer! This year, I am missing the days of trick or treating and having big parties to plan, but both out of the box (and in a BOX) opportunities keep presenting themselves. I guess I don’t have to wait until November to be truly grateful for what I have! (Written by: Tami)
