Vintage Photo Booth


Here's the thing - I LOVE PHOTOBOOTHS. I've always loved them. I've been to almost every one in Los Angeles and have over 100 strips to prove it. Unfortunately, a lot of the old photobooths have been replaced with digital ones. I can't believe that people actually think the digital photostrips are anywhere remotely as cool as the analog ones.

A couple of months ago, I started dreaming about having a booth in our house. So I did A LOT of research. And called A LOT of people. I ended up finding someone who had a beautiful vintage one for sale. The only problem was that it wasn't working. So I did A LOT of research and called A LOT of people. I found someone that serviced my favorite booths in Los Angeles and somehow convinced them to look at the broken Photo Booth. They were able to fix it.....and now I'm just trying to figure out if we can actually have one in our house.  Developing story...

Summer is Over




Even though summer is officially over - we've been trying to use our pool as much as we can! It's going to be crazy hot this weekend and I, for one, will be taking a dip in our newly heated pool!

Plant Stand Party




A few months ago I fell in love with a DIY (Do it Yourself) plant stand on an interior designers blog. Soooooo, I decided to have a party with my friends and make them! As you can see - they turned it pretty cool!

Outdoor Styling


The outside of our home needs some serious TLC. Last month we started on a landscaping project and we are still not finished with it. We had a ton of diseased white oleanders (they're poisonous too!) that had to be removed. Once we removed them - we realized that our pool equipment was a real eye sore from the street. Cut to - buying all new pool equipment and creating a white fence so it wasn't visible. Now we are just waiting on our live oaks, junipers, and vines to be planted. 

Now I want to spruce up the outside patio off the master bedroom. I'm currently obsessed with this loveseat from CB2 - and feel like all the other elements will look cute together.

Wallpaper


When Andrew and I first saw our house - I fell in love with it and the wallpaper. Our living room, staircase, and office had this cool creamy/orangey textured wallpaper. Unfortunately, it was super duper old and had to be removed. Now - we have just plain white walls. A little boring but still nice and bright.  I've been searching online to find something understated but still fun.


This one is my absolutely favorite. The gold foil dots are soooooo darn cute - and I feel like it would look great with all of our furniture. Especially because we have a lot of gold accents.


I also like this one because of the gold - but it might be a little much. I have samples coming - so we will know soon enough!


I love this pattern and the copper detailing - but it might be a little busy for our walls. I might save it for a bathroom or the laundry room though. It's soooooo good.


This wallpaper has a little more color in it with the copper and blue. It could look really cool in our living room with all of our bright furniture. It's my second favorite as far as what I think would look best in the space.


I also really like this one but feel like I need to see it in person. Do you see the pattern of all the gold/silver foil details? I can't help myself!

We will see what we end up deciding on. I cannot wait to start wallpapering. Will keep you posted.
