design junky

so one of the things i love most about living in la is there is so much fabulous, inspiring and great design all over town... especially from the mid century era that i love most...  not far from my favorite hiking trail in the pacific palisades is this amazing eames case study house (camera phone pic above!)... i love to visit it every so often and pack a picnic and sit in the lush green tree filled grounds and just experience it... oh, and also fantasize about meeting my own dashing architect and being the ray to his charles eames... and working on amazing projects just like this with him... i'm probably reaching a bit there... ok and guessing i should probably leave that tidbit out of my ad...  ha! anyhow,  i am so excited that in just a few weeks the la county art museum will be having an exhibit entirely focused on california design and i will actually get to see the contents of this house up close and personal! (you can only peak in the windows to see it when you visit the actual house)...

i'm just working on the finishing touches of my latest diy project today and am so excited to share it with you all later in the week... it is taking a smidge longer than i thought it would because i need to wait for the glue to dry in different stages...  you'll understand when you see it...

i am really loving that some of my recent diy projects are continuing to get such great attention! the folks at re-nest and curbly both posted my brass pendant diy on their sites! how awesome is that??  i hope everyone will like my newest diy just as much!

so, another friend has just become a client... last week he and his partner had the experience of burst pipes from the toilet in the condo next door to theirs causing water to gush through their master bedroom walls (yikes!) and now they want to redesign their bedroom and called me! i feel badly for them that they have to deal with the stress of contractors and walls and hardwood floors being ripped out but am so excited to work on this project (see, there is a silver lining to every cloud!)!

so, for those of you just tuning in and wanting to know more about me you can by going here... and if you didn't already know... i created a facebook page... check it out and "like" it! and follow me on twitter

until next time...
