Adding Brass Details into Your Home

For a long time I couldn’t embrace the brass trend – I’m a silver and chrome kind of girl. But since the trend looks like it will be here to stay, I’ve be embracing it more and more in my projects and my own home. But the trick, as with any trend, is to strike a balance. Small touches of brass will make a room feel current, not straight out of the ’80s. Whether it’s a beautiful set of candlesticks in your entry or dining room, or adding a larger touch with some hardware – I’m loving it even more.

If you still aren’t certain about this trend – add a small dose of it before changing everything. Once you live with it for a few weeks then decide if you want to invest in larger pieces. Also, consider mixing metals, which is something I have done in my own home. It has lasting power because you’re not putting your investment all in one color.

Grey Interiors for Fall

Chairish | Sacramento Street

It might not be a surprise to many of you but I’m coveting grey interiors for fall. It sets the perfect mood as we head into fall. It’s truly an amazing color that never seems to go out of style and complements every color. I’ve been seeing endless inspiration everywhere and it’s been reflecting itself in my design projects. Taking a turn to a more grey palette is fine by me – there are so many shades and patterns in grey that can be layered on top of each other to create stunning rooms.

That’s why I’ve put together a few of my favorite vintage items in all shades of grey. The perfect pieces that you can layer into your home or layer together to create a stunning space. Everything from the base items you need for a room, to the walls, to the details in accessories. I have you covered.


1.) Contemporary Master Harvey Sofa | 2.) Oakland Concrete Cube Table | 3.) Polished Petrified Wood Table | 4.) Ellan Maynard Original Painting: Morning Sea | 5.) White Wooden Mirror | 6.) Large European Style Waterbuck Antler Trophy | 7.) Peaceful Buddha Statue in Antique Gold | 8.) Gold Embossed High Ball Cocktail Glasses | 9.) Decorative Grey Metallic Pillow

Have you been in a grey mood now that the temperatures are dropping and it’s becoming sweater season?

Project Update

Inspiration | Sacramento Street


It has been quite a whirlwind around the office these days working on fun and exciting projects. I wanted to pop in to show you a little inspiration that I have going on for a recent project. As you all know, I love blues – these are some of the beautiful fabrics I acquired in Istanbul in February. I can’t wait to see how we end up using them in this project.

More project updates will be coming to the blog. I thought I should start sharing inspiration and details here with all of you!

Let’s Decorate an Office Together with CB2

APT CB2 - Office Starts May 8th

As a designer I dream of collaborations and projects that I want to do with my favorite companies. When I received a call from CB2 a few months ago with an opportunity to take part in a campaign called APT CB2, I was thrilled. It is a project where five designers come together to design an NYC apartment that is designed entirely on Pinterest. Amazing, right? Over five days you’ll get to see five rooms built in real time all based on what everyone “likes” most on Pinterest. I cannot wait to design the Office with all of you! We’ll be sharing our inspiration, products and more over twelve hours and in the end the result will be breathtaking. Find out more about this incredible campaign by watching this video.


You can already join in on all of the inspiration I’ve been gathering and curating for the office space on my APT CB2 Pinterest board. You’ll find that my vision was to keep things clean, neutral, and minimalist. This Thursday (TOMORROW!!), I’ll be working alongside the CB2 team all day and night to design and decorate this office space. But wait, I’ll need your help choosing which items get to actually get placed inside the workspace – every desk, lamp, chair, bookcase and more. It won’t be the same without you!

Now head on over to APT CB2 to find out more details about the entire collaboration – it’s pretty awesome. They’ve pulled together five great designers to complete the project. Lastly, you’ll have a chance to win a dream room from CB2 worth $5,000. Isn’t that unbelievable?

Be sure to pop over to Pinterest to help me decorate this blank slate tomorrow. I can’t wait to see what we create together! And don’t worry, I’ll be sharing the end result right here next week.

On the Hunt: Trays

on the hunt: trays | sacramento streetWe love finding unique and beautiful items for your home each week in our series On the Hunt. This week we’ve scoured the web for our favorite trays and found some great pieces. What I love about a tray is that it can make a few items that are unrelated, look instantly like a vignette of meaningful pieces, perfectly grouped on your tray. It can also make a stack of bills, a pile of mail or magazines look more stylish. Whether you’re looking for your office to be more organized, or your coffee table to look more put together, a tray could be a great option for you. Here are a few of our favorites:


1. Reclaimed Wood Trays: This reclaimed wood tray is perfect for the person or family who loves the rustic or industrial look. It comes in two sizes, so it can suit all of your needs.


2. Boatman Geller Large Stella Tray: A personalized tray with a monogram or initials is a cute way to add that special touch to your vanity or coffee table.


3. Tate Trays: We love the washed out wood tone to these trays. Use one on the coffee table and the other on your side table for a pulled together look.


4. Wood & Lacquer Trays: Not only are these lacquer and wood trays on serious sale, they’re also some of the most stylish around!


5. Scalloped Lacquered Wood Tray: Want to add a simple pattern to your space? Here’s the perfect tray to do it.


6. Nate Burkus Wood Hexagon Tray: If your room already has a few circular and rectangular shapes (seen in the furniture, rugs, and art) this hexagon tray would be the perfect shape to break it up and bring a modern, rustic touch to the decor.


Have you found any trays you love recently?
