this weeks pretty pins is a little bit of a mish mash. i guess that’s what inspiration is. a little bit of this, and a little bit of that (my grandma used to say this all the time), but when you put it all together it’s beautiful. 

this week we have audrey, the color green, a cottage in maine, chinoiserie, loads of wicker, pretty bedrooms, gardens and a bikes….the more i think about it, it’s not really a mish mash at all,  it’s all you really need for spring. 

follow along on pinterest here. 


we installed holiday house a 28 room hotel in palm springs this week. such a fun experience. we are really proud of how it all turned out, a mid century mix of blue and white and natural textures. it’s vibrant, happy, comfortable, and if i say so myself, very cool!

the owners of the hotel love art and have a very impressive and vast collection. i have to say the layer of art is truly what makes the hotel so unique and special.  

david hockney, his art and his book with taschen was a great source of inspiration. the way hockney used color and his love of california resonated in our concepting and how the layers in the hotel evolved. 

it’s been a fun week, we are so i love with holiday house, especially how it showcases inspiring art!

thank you mr. hockney for all the inspiration. 



Sparrows Lodge


we are in palm springs this week installing holiday house, a 28 room boutique hotel that we have been working on for the last year. it’s been a super fun week and thrilling to see our first hotel come to life (you must come and visit, the hotel will be opening in a few weeks).

tonight we had the most wonderful dinner at the holiday houses sister hotel sparrows lodge. such a charming and beautiful place, so quaint and stylish. after a very long day, sparrows lodge was the perfect place to escape and unwind. so right after you come see holiday house, you have to stop by sparrows lodge, it’s so worth it!

here are some pictures of sparrows taken by me- it’s my kind of lodge! enjoy! and please follow our holiday house installation this week via instagram stories…we are having fun!
