New Home Office Design

About a month ago, My husband and I moved into the Willow Glen area. The neighborhood is filled with all kinds of charming homes with so many unique details and I love being able to admire them on my daily walks to downtown. Our previous rental only had 1 bedroom and well, it was getting really cluttered and we outgrew it. I work from home, so having a clean and dedicated office…

Thanksgiving Tablescape

Who else is as excited for Thanksgiving as we are?! While I love Christmas, I have to say Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays.

I was having a hard time finding exactly what I wanted. I fell in love with this gorgeous bench from West Elm, but I wasn’t in love…

The Best Way to Spread Christmas Cheer

Is singing loud for all to hear. Or to chop down your own tree and do a little DIYing around the house – which is what I did. I’m not much of a singer. I do love Elf though – probably goes down as one of my favorite holiday movies. My husband Andrew and I had a little getaway in Monterey the weekend after Thanksgiving thanks to a great b-day…

Renter Friendly Reclaimed Wood Wall DIY

A while back  PJ and I found our way into an adorable interior design boutique in downtown Los Altos (that we blogged about here), where I picked up a pretty awesome reclaimed metal and wood rhino.
