New Home Office Design

IMG_5477 edited

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…

New Headshots by Pictilio

View More:

We are long overdue in sharing the love with our good pals over at Pictilio who shot some updated head shots for us a while back, so we thought we’d share a little update with y’all to start off this week. We attempted to get some good ones when we did our DIY buoy shoot for GWS,  but unfortunately, the wind was not our friend that day so we had a take…

Well, we’ve got some fun pictures and a video to share with ya from The Lab Event we were a part of back in January that we blogged about…

Loft Love

I  thought I’d share some pictures of our loft that I took recently for Apartment Therapy’s Small Cool Contest. Sadly, I don’t think our place was chosen for the contest, although the deadline for submissions isn’t until April 18th, so maybe they are just sifting through all the applications and haven’t gotten to mine yet. I’ll keep you all posted and will be asking for your vote if I make…

Finger Lickin’ Good

A dinner was arranged during my visit to Austin at The County Line – a great bbq spot right on the water. The restaurant had delicious food and such a great vibe. We had a private room in the back and it looked like it could have been set for a fun and festive wedding reception. I just loved the flower arrangements, strings of lights, cowhide table cloths and the…

Howdy from Austin!

This week my home away from home is Austin, Texas! Had quite the rough trip here (seriously worst turbulence I’ve EVER experienced!) but I made it!! Looking forward to trying some delicious bbq and checking out what this city has to offer with colleagues who have come here from across the world.  I’m staying at the W in downtown Austin and I must say, it’s quite swanky. I think it’d…

Swanky Starbucks

Even the Starbucks in Barcelona are cool. Maybe I should just change my blog name to Christie’s industrial rustic obsession… Cement walls and floors. Farmhouse table. Old bathtub used as island for sugar, napkins, and stirrers. Open shelves, beautiful tile and size arranged mugs. Chalkboard wall. Industrial stools. Table with old steam heater as base and rough rustic wood top.

Hola de Barcelona!

I am traveling for work this week in beautiful Barcelona, Spain!  Ahhh…I L-O-V-E this city. Seriously…what’s not to love?!  The food is amazing, the architecture is to die for and I’m surrounded by fashionable people and incredible design. Tonight I went to dinner at this absolutely charming restaurant just steps away from my hotel where I enjoyed incredible tapas, wine and amazing decor. Mmmmmm I heart lanterns. How cool is…

Digs for the Day

The power was out in my building today at work so my *office* has been the cafeteria for the day. I love the industrial design elements in our cafe, so it’s definitely not a bad place to be working. Globe lights, exposed lumber ceilings and pipe-like structures. Industrial light pendants and painted farm style tables. I want that cart in my kitchen please. Eat. *Wall Paper* from old cookbooks, catalogs,…
