When I found out I was designing the bathroom, I knew right away that I wanted to add floor-to-ceiling subway tile (with dark grout.) It makes the room feel clean and simple, but has such a powerful impact. Then, I knew I wanted to bring in lots of chrome details. There’s just something so fresh about chrome in the bathroom. I’m especially obsessed with these chrome lights I found on Lowe’s website! I love that you wouldn’t normally expect to find them over a bathroom mirror. Storage in the bathroom is a big deal for me, so I made sure to incorporate lots of baskets to for towels and toiletries. Finally, I added in pops of red through berry branches and bead garlands. Overall, the room was a success – and it makes me want to start renovating my new bathroom as soon as possible! Thanks again to Ashley Norton who helped me pull everything together on the day of the event.
Make sure you check out the photos and details about the bedroom I designed for Lowe’s here. Otherwise, if you’re interest in recreating this bathroom look, here are all the elements we picked up from Lowe’s:

A few weeks ago, I had the chance to partner with Lowe’s for their Deck the Halls event in New York City. The Lowe’s team was amazing and built an entire home in a Manhattan studio in a matter of hours. Then, they invited 7 different designers to showcase their holiday decorating ideas in each room. I was so honored to be included! It was so fun seeing my design for the guest suite come to life.
In the bedroom, I knew I wanted to go dark. So we painted everything (moulding, shelving, baseboards) with chalkboard paint. Not only is the color of the chalkboard paint beautiful – it also allows for writing fun holiday messages right onto the walls. These dark walls made the crisp white bed linens, simple red Christmas decorations, and DIY artwork to pop in the room. One of my favorite elements was the plant wall we created using terracotta pots and greenery from Lowe’s. It brought so much life into the room! Then, we styled the room with accent furniture from Lowe’s and lots of vintage details. I have to give a shout out to Ashley Norton who came on the day of the event and helped me pull all the little details together.
I’ll be sharing all the bathroom details in a few days. But, if you’re interested in getting a similar look in your home for the holidays, here are the supplies we got from Lowe’s:
A. Oak Accent Chair | B. Black Chalkboard Paint | C. Square End Table | D. Pinewood Bead Chain | E. White Ceramic Vase | F. Black Arm Wall Sconce | G. Rectangular Console and Sofa Table | H. White Side Chair

GQ France did a little article about creative people in Paris. We were so honored and flattered to be included. The article was done by Valerie Dray who is one of my favorite people I’ve met in France so far. You can see the whole article right here. (It’s in French!)
I’m so excited to show you part of the story I worked on for Anthology Magazine. If you haven’t heard Anthology is a really beautiful lifestyle magazine that actually comes out in print! It is well done every single time.
This story is about some of the surprises that my friends and I have done for each other. We recreated them so they are picture perfect. The one below shows the installation that my friend Aubrey did for her boyfriend’s birthday. There is lots more to show you but I don’t want to ruin the surprise. (ps: Aubrey did all of the awesome photography.)
This issue is my favorite because the theme is Life is a Party, its choc full of awesome content. See the online preview right here. You can get a copy from any of these stockists and Anthropologie is now carrying them. Or better yet get yourself a subscription right over here!
