Rummage by Kishani Perera


There are so many things that draw me in to Kishani Perera's style: her color palettes, her eclectic mix of vintage furnishings, and her youthful yet sophisticated aesthetic. Now we can shop Kishani Perera's style straight from the designer herself at her new Los Angeles boutique Rummage, located on Beverly Blvd. I have a few meetings in LA next week and I think I just might have to squeeze this in.

Ocean Inspiration


Today it was a platter full of starfish on a dining table, last week it was sea urchins on a book shelf, and the week before that I was placing an order for a shell chandelier and accessorizing a salmon colored bathroom with a piece of white coral...

Although I think decorating with sea life is a tad (or a lot) over done, I still find myself doing it over and over again. Maybe it's just a phase I'm going through, or maybe there's just something about the ocean that makes a coastal home feel unfinished without a piece of it on display.

Million Dollar Decorators


It's been a crazy month and things don't look like they're going to be slowing down any time soon (for which I couldn't be more grateful). Last night I got home from working at around midnight, exhausted. I promised myself I was going to go straight to bed, but when I remembered that I had the series premiere of Million Dollar Decorators recorded. I told myself that I would just watch a couple of minutes to get a feel for the designers.

I don't really know who I was kidding. Of course I watched the whole thing and didn't get to bed until 1:30 am.

My schedule lately leaves very little time for TV, but somehow I'm going to justify this as work education. I have been a huge fan of Mary McDonald since my first job as a design assistant in Laguna Beach. I would flip through House Beautiful on my lunch break and one day I came across an interior designed by Mary. I fell in love and have been keeping up on her designs ever since. I was a little afraid I wasn't going to like her, but she actually seems very cool. Her and Kathy Ireland were my favorites to watch, but I enjoyed the overall repore that the designers had with each other.

I know reality TV isn't always reality, but I still appreciate the look inside these designers scope of work and clientele.

Million Dollar Decorators airs Thursday at 10/9 c on Bravo.
