SILVERLAKE'S MAKERS MESS

Just last week our good friends, Brandy Lewis and Sara Flate, opened MAKERS MESS -- a new and beautiful art studio, in Silverlake. The studio offers art and design classes for just about everyone -- whether it be a girls' night out learning the basics of mixology or pom pom making for the kids. Over the weekend we helped to celebrate their opening with T-shirt decorating and a tour of their lovely space.

MM T-shirts ready for guests to design beneath a stunning installation by Meghan Shimek.

We spy our favorite Hedley & Bennett aprons!

The kids had a blast decorating shirts. I can see Brixton enjoying many a class here.

Their gift area has really special pieces and cards, on beautiful custom copper and raw wood displays. 

See their full schedule HERE.

Brixton's Outfit: T-shirt - Munster Kids, Pants - Koolabah, Shoes - Vans

MAKERS MESS is located at: 602 N. Hoover, Los Angeles, 90004

Congratulations Ladies!! Can't wait to get in on some classes! xx

THE KIDS AT HEDLEY & BENNETT

Our Hedley & Bennett love continues! The kids raged at H&B headquarters and became official #ApronSquad members! They tried on aprons from the newly expanded kids' line, while swinging on Ellen's famous swing, eating snacks and making art. It was a seriously fun time. All of these beautiful photos are by Mary Costa Photography

Recently my family and I moved into a new house and the black, mid-century head-of-dining table armchairs no longer worked in the new space. So I was inspired to create a great little conversation nook with my two lovely vintage chairs. This had me on the lookout for the most gorgeous, interesting and special pairs of chairs. Here are some of my favorites. If only I could have ten homes...
