Whoever said “choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life” must have been a born billionaire or in the legal marijuana game because although I love what I do, sometimes it’s definitely work. The last couple of days have been all kinds of hectic. Back to back client meetings, proposals galore and even a quick side project to top it all off. Work was definitely getting done. But one thing I’ve learned (and this might be complete common-sense but I’m still going to share) is no matter what, never wake up and tell yourself “today is going to suck”. That was me Monday and (if you couldn’t tell by the post) it did, in fact, suck.
We’re past that now. On to bigger, better and more beautiful things. Like this insane modern day treehouse. Built as a personal project by architect Jesse Bennett and his interior designer wife Anne-Marie Campagnolo, this home takes open and airy to a whole new level. Titled the “Planchonella House”, the designing couple was able to incorporate the home into its environment in such a seamless way. They utilized the views by integrating floor-to-ceiling windows and laying out the interiors with an open floor plan, giving anywhere you sit an incredible view. Overall Bennett and Campagnolo were able to create a home that encapsulated both a playful and architecturally sound aesthetic. Absolutely beautiful.
Good morning my loves.
I don't know about all of you, but I feel like that weekend literally flew by. There was barely enough time to relax, and already we're back to Monday. Blehhh. On the bright side, apparently today is National Coffee Day, which is basically my new favorite holiday. Looks like I have an excuse to treat myself to that extra large vanilla latte (sorry, pumpkin spice has never been my thing). Couldn't be more excited :)
Enjoy (some coffee) // Like // &Share

I wanted to follow up with last weeks Gossip Girl post with a peer review of the set designer herself, Christina Tonkin. You've probably seen her work while watching The Carrie Diaries, Gossip Girl, or Sex and The City and didn't even realize that all of these incredible spaces were connected by the same brilliant designer. Christina also ventures off sets and into real homes (which are also amazing) but her Gossip Girl spaces are definitely my favorite.
The dynamic color combinations, impeccable attention to detail, and exquisite taste in artwork leaves each space completely unique to the character who dwells there. The Humphrey's loft is filled with a rocker, Brooklyn hipster turned father vibe. While the Waldorf's two-story penthouse shares the same classic, vintage with a modern twist feeling fitting only of Queen B herself. For those of you who share my love for the series probably recall all of these amazing spaces, but for those of you who need a refresher, here is the GG set run down.
