We’re Hiring!

January 12, 2016

Can you believe it? We’re hiring again!  This time around we are getting down to business and hiring an Office Manager. We’ve never had one of these before (gulp) but HOLY COW, we definitely need one to help keep us all in check! If you think you’re the lady (or gentleman) for the job or you know the perfect candidate – then send ’em on over wouldja!! They could just be the new member of the #AIDSQUAD…

January 12, 2016

As you know it’s the New Year and guess what – I’ve got my eyes on a few must-have items for 2016. Of course, I don’t need anything new but I couldn’t help myself from pinning all these goodies!! Also, apparently this dude everybody calls ‘El Niño’ is coming to town, so I really should be pinning ponchos and rain boots but c’mon – I live in LA and ain’t no body got time for that!

Crushing On // Terrazzo

January 7, 2016

Bet you never saw this one coming… I’m serious though – I’ve got a crush on Terrazzo! This ain’t yo Grandma’s terrazzo, I promise. Check it out below and tell me you don’t want me to incorporate it into one of my designs this year. If you say: “Heck no Amber – I can’t get down with that!” – I’ll probably just cleverly sneak it into one of my clients projects – just to prove you all wrong. Maybe even #ClientMyselfAndICantMakeUpMyMind – things could get wild over here.

Ohhhhh #ClientZtotheEtotheN… It’s been SO fun to work with this young & hip, newly engaged couple over yonder in Venice Beach. We did a whole do over on their pad with a few remodels here and there. I’m officially OBSESSED with how everything turned out and the color palette –

Color Theory: Army Green

December 21, 2015

As you all know, I’m trying to get better at this whole blog thaaang so I figured I’d bring back an old topic – Color Theory. I’m sure you haven’t even noticed it’s been missing, but here it is just showing up at your doorstep right in time for the holidays! So consider this my gift to you…

But seriously – I am DIGGIN’ these army green hues at the moment. We just wrapped up #ClientZtotheEtotheN and used a similar color on the kitchen cabinets –
