Artist Spotlight: Cena O'Brien https://www.greigedesign.com/blogs/blog/artist-spotlight-cena-obrien
One of my favorite things about designing spaces is selecting the artwork.  It is such a major part of setting the mood and color palette for a space. It is so fun to mix styles and mediums to create interest.  I love hand done one of a kind pieces and I am so excited to be able to share the beautiful artwork of Cena O'Brien.  Cena's work as a watercolor artist incorporates rich color and soft lines to create texture, each piece is unique and a perfect addition to any collection.
Cena has been kind enough to offer our readers the opportunity to win one of her beautiful unframed water color pieces, just hop on over to Instagram for all of the details and to enter to win.

Keep up with Cena on Instagram

It is always a pleasure when you find a client who has a perfect grasp on what they want their home to feel like.  We started a project with an overseas client last summer on their vacation home in Aspen.  Alas the timing and everything did not work out for us and we were not able to complete the project with them at the time but we were so inspired by their choices we thought it might be fun to share them here..

Our client was looking for a space that would work for both the summer and winter activities that Aspen has to offer so we put together a look that would transition well between the two, while still offering comfort and gorgeous styling.

Design Traveler: Hotel San Cristobal https://www.greigedesign.com/blogs/blog/design-traveler-hotel-san-cristobal
Part of what we love about travel is the endless design inspiration. The Hotel San Cristobal, located on Mexico's Baja peninsula, provides tons of inspiration. The hotel has a simple and clean design but still feels tropical and remains true to it's Mexican roots. We love the zen-like feel of the entire space and the way the architectural elements cast beautiful shadows all over the property.

5 Things: Ashley Clark of sKout https://www.greigedesign.com/blogs/blog/5-things-ashley-clark-of
We are excited to share the next inspiring woman in our 5 Things series with you! Ashley Clark is the principal designer and owner of sKout, based in Newport Beach, CA. Her design atheistic is simple and never “over designed”, and her spaces are simply gorgeous!   She is an avid collector of vintage and found items as well as vintage textiles. Her one of a kind pillows and other photos of her work can be found at shop sKout. Ashley was born and raised in Utah, but now resides in Southern California with her husband and 4 children and knowing her personally is a pleasure, she always makes me laugh. Here's a little insight into what gets her going!
 
What did you want to be when you grew up?
 
Duh—I wanted to be a Solid Gold Dancer or an Actress :)
 
Where do you find inspiration?
 
Social media (Instagram and pinterest) is just a constant source of inspiration—but I also love checking out new stores and boutiques- restaurants and can always find some good inspiration at a flea market.
  
Do you work from home?  Office?  Studio?
 
I have a small studio in Newport Beach.   It is super close to home and my kids school so kind of the best of both worlds!
 
Are you a City girl or a Country girl?
 
I think I am a little bit of both!  I love the mountains and wide open spaces—but the busy-ness and activity in a city is so much fun!
 
What are you reading right now? 
 
I have a big ol pile of books on my bedside table—I am partially through these two:  (does anyone else start 2 or 3 books at a time?!)
The Four Agreements: A Practical Guide to Personal Freedom
 
And
  
The Road Back to You: An Enneagram Journey to Self-Discovery — This one is Fascinating!!!

Introducing Greige Textiles early fall 2017 https://www.greigedesign.com/blogs/blog/fabric-2
I am so excited to announce my first season of our textile line for greige textiles.  I have been working on this grouping for quite sometime and it is it s true labor of love.  I have spent the past several months drawing and perfecting patterns both by hand, and on the computer to create what will become the final product.  I even had the pleasure of working with some amazing artists to create patterns and get them made into screens.  We have chosen to have our textiles printed by hand here in California on Belgian linen.  Each of the colors are custom mixed to match pieces that have just the right colors we are searching for.  It has definitely been a learning process, but it is amazing and I am so thankful to everyone who has taken the time to answer my questions and help me to understand the how everything works!
Fabric is always one of my favorite pieces of the design process, I love to mix texture and color for just the right effect.  As this line progresses we plan to have each season work with those before it so that the patterns and colors have a longevity and can be revived often.  I am so excited to share everything with you here!
 
We currently have 4 patterns, Fern stripe, Mer, Holiday and Trina  now available for purchase on our website - check it out here. We are offering fabric by the yard, as well as down-filled pillows and pillow covers. You can follow our progress and see sneek peeks on our @greigetextiles instagram too.
We hope you love the collection as much as we do!

(more on that this coming week too!) So excited!
So here are a few things I came across this week that I thought you might like...
First the sales... because everyone loves a good sale, am I right, not to mention, ehemmm we have to start shopping for all those holiday gifts.
Serena and Lily is having a friends and family sale 20% off everything- *Use code HAPPYDAYS
Anthropologie is having a Happy Harvest sale with various discounts throughout their site.
Its time to start thinking about your holiday tables.  Love this set up from Kate Marker Interiors!
We are getting ready for Halloween and all things fall around here and I always love to see the new ways people find to decorate their pumpkins.  A few favorites - Botanical Pumpkins by Terrain and these marbled indigo pumpkins.  Check out our Fall pinterest for more ideas on all things fall.
Cannot wait to see all of the beautiful recipes in the new Cook Beautiful book by Athena Calderone that just came out this week!

Often times, less is more. Loving the simple foundation here of black, white and wood tones. A fun way to add interest to a space is with mismatched dining chairs, as you see here. Mixing the same chair style in different colors is a great way to try out this trend if you're not brave enough to fully mix and match different chair styles.

Tell us, would you try mismatched dining chairs?

As summer shifts to fall, we find ourselves gravitating towards rich, saturated jewel tones. Specifically, mustard yellow. We just cannot get enough of this color lately. We love how it is somewhat neutral, yet still brings that pop of color and interest to a space. AND it pairs beautifully with both modern and traditional decor!

Design Library: Modern Living - Homes Away From Home https://www.greigedesign.com/blogs/blog/design-library-modern-living

1.

We were thrilled to receive a sneak peek of Claire Bingham's new book, Modern Living - Homes Away From Home. This gorgeous tome is chock-full of inspiring homes around the globe that evoke a feeling of escapism and eclecticism.

 

Have you ever fallen in love with a hotel or an AirBnb that you've stayed in and wanted to bring the look of the space back home with you?? This book elegantly breaks down the global eclectic style so you can recreate it in your own space. 

 

Modern Living - Homes Away From Home is truly a must-have for any lover of interior design and/or travel!

It's hard to believe that this classic home was a ground-up new build. With a black and white palette and traditional elements, this home has a timeless quality that still feels modern. The kitchen is one of the most unique we've seen in a while - just love that pair of light fixtures over the island!

Design Traveler: Hotel Henriette Paris https://www.greigedesign.com/blogs/blog/design-traveler-hotel-henriette-paris

This modern and quirky hotel is not what you would typically expect of a hotel in the heart of Paris. Hotel Henriette is a designers dream. Each room was individually conceptualized with the traveler in mind. The designer, Vanessa Scoffier, said her goal was to "banish boring" and we think she definitely hit the nail on the head with that one. Looking to achieve the same look for yourself? Vanessa recommends scouring local flea markets, stops throughout your travels and our favorite, going snooping in your grandmother's attic! Grandma, we're coming over!

Grey in the Kitchen No. 19 https://www.greigedesign.com/blogs/blog/grey-in-the-kitchen-no-19

We came across this dream of a kitchen on Pinterest and knew it would be perfect for our Grey in the Kitchen series. Loving the soft hue of these grey cabinets. The cabinets have just enough warmth to them to pair beautifully with the gold accents throughout the room. Speaking of gold accents, can we talk about those custom brass shelves?? Simply stunning!

Devonshire Project https://www.greigedesign.com/blogs/blog/devonshire-project

We were thrilled to work with Cody Johnson of Pacific Edge Builders, on his Devonshire Project in San Diego. You may remember Cody as the contractor from our Peninsula House project. We helped Cody with the interior finish specifications on this recent new build. For this project we went for a modern farmhouse style, and kept everything classic, clean and open. This home is perfect for the family that loves to entertain. The home is currently for sale - if you are interested you can check out the listing here

5 Things: Cassandra LaValle of Coco + Kelley and The Emerald Studio https://www.greigedesign.com/blogs/blog/cassandra-lavalle-of-coco-kelley-and-the-emerald-studio 

We are delighted to share our next 5 Things participant with you, Cassandra LaValle. We first became inspired by Cassandra after seeing her speak at the Design Bloggers Conference in LA years ago.  Cassandra is the voice behind one of our favorite design and lifestyle blogs, Coco + Kelley. She is also the Creative Director of The Emerald Studio, an interior design, event design and brand collaboration firm. Cassandra is a true creative and we just love everything she does. Here's a little peek into her world!

 

What did you want to be when you grew up?

 

A magazine editor - so that sort of worked out well for me! I didn’t really think that interior design could be a career back then. If I had, I probably would have pursued that earlier. I was always into redecorating my room, but I also loved graphic design so I feel like my blog has magically made a career of both. 

 

Where do you find inspiration?

 

Everywhere, anywhere. I think getting offline is essential for true inspiration though. Travel is a huge one for me - I am endlessly inspired by seeing new places and it always refreshes my desire to create when I come back from a big trip. I also love driving through smaller towns and seeing how people who are living more offline are doing things. Galleries, international magazines, and old design books from other eras all help keep me inspired. 

 

Do you work from home?  Office?  Studio?

 

Right now I have a beautiful office studio in an area of Seattle called Georgetown - it’s basically our design district which is convenient! It’s me and a few fellow creatives who share one space, and I love it. 

 

Are you a City girl or a Country girl?

 

I’d say I’m more city than country, but wherever I go, I require water. I’ve always lived near the ocean and could never stray far from being on a coast! As I get older, I definitely value getting away from the city and into more open space. 

 

What are you reading right now?

 

I just finished read ‘The Girls’ … now I need to dig into something new! 

 

All images from Coco + Kelley and The Emerald Studio.
