One Kings Lane Tag Sale Teaser!

As I mentioned in my last post I'm really thrilled about all of the items that I've curated for this sale. I just received a final preview of all of the items and wanted to share a sneak peak of some of my favorites with all of you.

1. Charcoal Nude
No art collection is complete without a nude drawing! I especially loved the casual sketchy quality of this one. Signed and dated.

2. Vintage Paisley Armchair 
Newly upholstered in Peter Dunham's Rajmata Midnight. It's the perfect side chair for a bedroom or study.

3. Black & Gold Painted Dining Table 
I hope this guy goes to a good home because it took a lot of TLC to get him transported and delivered to my storage due to it's size and weight. It's a truly striking piece and comes with a leaf to support an even bigger dinner party!

4. Ceramic Shell Dish 
Handmade by a blind artisan in Santa Barbara, this piece is one of my favorites in the sale.

5. Onyx horse book ends 
Such a beautiful stone and the horse motif is so classic, I don't think these will ever go out of style.

6. Shell Napkin Rings 
Made of brass and silver, these will add a touch of whimsy to your next tablescape.

7. Boudoir Screen - I think this thing weighs about 4 tons. A single hinged screen depicting classic Art Deco design with a silvered and gilt √©glomis√© finish. Beautiful.

8. Throw Pillow
Made of a vintage African textile.

9. Antique Oil Painting
I absolutely ador this painting and I think the chipping at the top of the canvas just adds to its interest. Beautiful color palate, newly framed.

You can start shopping all of these items and many more here, starting Monday's at 6:00 pm PST.

Another Tastemaker Tag Sale!

I'll be launching my 3rd Tag Sale with One Kings Lane starting Monday 3/25 at 6:00 pm. I'm selling so many things that I'm really excited about. I have a larger collection of art than ever before, some of which I'm having a hard time parting with! You can check out the teaser and the actual sale here

The Interior Collective

About a month ago I got invited by Caesarstone to write for their blog, The Interior Collective, on various topics in the realm of design. It's been a fun opportunity and it's awesome to be part of such a talented group of bloggers and designers, hence the "collective". My article today has been one of my favorites to write so far: knowing when to splurge and when to save on home decor. Head on over here to check it out. I write a new article every week, but there is new and interesting content added daily from the other authors.

West Week

This week I attended spring market at the Laguna Design Center and West Week at the Pacific Design Center. It's one of my favorite weeks of the year to be a designer because I get to meet new friends, run in to old friends, hear awesome speakers (Alexa Hampton was my favorite), and check out new product. Another highlight was chatting with Ross Cassidy (so helpful and charming!) from Jeffrey Alan Marks Inc. at the Witford showroom while they were there promoting their beautiful new line for Palacek - so good.

Speaking of running in to old friends, I do not recommend jumping in the shower last minute, throwing your hair in a wet bun with no make up, and heading over to the PDC to try and catch the last keynote expecting not to run in to anyone you know, because you most certainly will (4 people to be exact), and then you'll feel an overwhelming need to reassure them that, despite your appearance, you are still a designer...not a gym teacher.
