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 wall! I was hired by a very special couple to finish off two spaces in their home. Some of the areas just needed finishing touches such as accessories, a last piece of furniture, etc, but this wall was simply just too massive and needed the right details to make the space feel complete. We are working now with my amazing artist, Angel, to come up with a specialty finish for this space, and I know it is going to be awesome! (Written by: Lauren)

#2: This upcoming event! Our Denim to Diamonds gala event is just a little over two weeks away and we are busy getting the decor ready and dusting off our jewels and cowboy boots! Did I mention that we get to work with some of our very favorite vendors to bring the temple’s overall vision to life? We know DJ Michael is going to bring out all of his favorite moves for this one (like he did at our last western themed event). Can’t wait! (Written by: Tami)

#3: These pillows! Sometimes it just takes the right detail to finish off a space. My client’s existing sofa worked with his new decor, but the pillows on it simply did not, and they were really taking away from the overall vibe we were going for. I ordered the most amazing pillows from a few sources including some of my favorites (Barneys and Saks) and they really took this space to a new level! (Written by: Lauren)

#4: This vendor (or rather venue)! Last weekend we had the opportunity to work with a really awesome staff in a really special location, Tiato Kitchen + Garden Venue. This picture is a sneak peek at some of the decor we brought in for our client’s Sweets and Sunflowers Bat Mitzvah party, but you can visit any time of year and dine under all of these magical lights. Thank you Tiato for providing delicious food, a fun atmosphere, and a staff who truly loves what they do! Planning an indoor / outdoor event in the near future? Consider this space in Santa Monica. It is perfection! (Written by: Tami)

#5: This birthday recap! Last week, we shared how we celebrated our birthday separately in our Birthday Recap post. However, as we mentioned, our birthday tradition is to plan an evening together with our husbands where we dine at a local hot spot, drink some wine, and get dressed up (cuz why not!). This year the celebrations continued with dinner at The Huntley Hotel and a family night out (adults only) to see Elton John in his farewell tour. We have had so much fun and have made so many memories. Happy Birthday to us! (Written by: Tami)
