This collection is the stuff my dreams are made of. We have been working on it for a solid year, listening to what y’all want to see from us, perfecting the colors, and finally now releasing them on our newly fluffed website! I am so so proud of our team, the hardest working, most positive, passionate, funny, group of ladies who just make awesome stuff happen every day. I hope y’all enjoy the collection…


To thank all of you for your continued support and welcome Boone & Bloomsbury to the family, we are offering 15% off site-wide with the code B&B15!

Before & After: Project LA

Domaine Home did a great piece on our LA Project this week, and I wanted to show you all the before & afters and share some behind the scenes action!


Our clients, Kelly and Matt, reached out to us early this summer asking for help with their new home. From Kelly’s initial email:

“My husband, Matt and I recently purchased a 1920’s Spanish Style home in LA. We thought we had a handle on what we wanted and where our design taste was leading us, but now that we’re living in the house and buying things- it’s not coming together like we planned. Basically, I don’t want to keep making expensive mistakes and then needing to start all over…”

Kelly and Matt were actually pretty into design, especially danish furniture of which they had collected a lot of great pieces over the years, but were having trouble blending their more modern furniture taste with the Spanish architecture of the home.

So our tasks were:

  1. Blend the traditional Spanish architecture with their existing modern pieces.
  2. Let the sun shine in- and brighten things up!
  3. Highlight the original architectural details of the home.
  4. Bring out their fun, colorful personalities.

We worked over email, selecting the larger items like the rug and coffee table, as well as creating a custom media cabinet and pillows. Then Valerie and I flew out for a few days before our shoot with Domaine to pull it all together.

I have to gush a little bit…Kelly and Matt are beyond dream clients- so game, so communicative and understanding, with amazing taste and a sense of fun. These photos by Chris Patey are stunning, and I have to say a huge “thank-you” to the entire Domaine team for the great feature! Finally- special Gorgeous Award to my SuperHeroAssistant Valerie who drove us all around LA making the impossible look easy, we will always have the memories of driving with a fiddle fig leaf surrounding our heads even if the experience took years off our lives!

I hope y’all enjoy this first taste of one of our favorite projects- there will be a lot more to come from our work on this amazing home that I am excited to share! As always, let me know if you have any questions.

Before & After: Pete’s Biscuit Office

We were supposed to move into our new Biscuit offices at the beginning of December last year so that I would have a few months to transition the business and get things running smoothly before Harry arrived at the end of January, and I could take a little time off. But, best laid plans and all that, the offices weren’t ready until March which pretty much eliminated any hope I had of a “maternity leave”. Things was stressful, and Pete offered to take some of those things off of my plate and manage the business side during the transition so I could focus on the creative side/physical space- and, you know, breastfeeding/not losing my mind.

I set Pete up an office so he would have his own space when he worked from the store, which was a little sad and spare. Minimalist chic? We ended up enjoying sharing an office, working from the same space streamlined our family logistics, and it was especially nice to have him around when super helpful freight shippers would leave big furniture orders in the middle of our sidewalk. By summer Pete decided to license some of the technology he had been developing so he could focus on a smaller project that had recently turned into a dream opportunity- and he started looking for his own legit office space for he and his business partners. Unwilling to lose our man-power, I offered to properly fluff up his office and share our conference room with his business partners. We shook on it and got to work making his environment more hospitable, the results of which you may have seen in this instagram pic:

But it’s not really a satisfying makeover until you can appreciate the full before & after and so I present:

The Scary Before.

We started the makeover by moving his desk chair from our home office, finding him a proper desk, and some comfortable chair for visitors…

4 yay!

And ta-da!!!5 desk

Pete’s office doesn’t have any windows, and the white cinderblocks are, erm, a little institutional? So we pulled some pictures and art from around our house to warm it up, and filled in with some finds at our neighborhood flea markets, but the real game changer was hanging that giant nautical scene behind his desk. IMG_8082

I am not super detail-oriented, and while I appreciate a good gallery wall, the idea of executing one makes me feel mostly just tired.

I will say a little planning goes a long way to preserving sanity- but once we had the basic framework we decided to just keep it loose. Perfection was not the goal, but I am happy with how it came out. I think the key to an interesting gallery wall more than anything is a mix of mediums, photography, oil paintings, watercolor, sketches, and some textural/sculptural pieces.

The chairs we found are super comfortable, and they swivel which is always enjoyable.

People tend to avoid color in man spaces, and favor tough surfaces like wood, metal, and leather but you need a little softness and pops of color to keep things warm.10 Gallery
This was a quick fix, we found all of the furniture, lighting, art and accessories one day and hung the gallery wall/put it all together the next, but it is one of the biggest transformations in terms of feel I think I have ever done. Which is easier to do when the “before” is so bleak, but it really is such a pleasant place to work from now.

I put some selections for any of you looking to create a similar look on your own, and when I was sourcing items I was so impressed by the options West Elm is putting out these days, you could do an awesome version of this room straight from the store- so I included how I would do the look for less as well!Pete Office Pete OFfice art Screen Shot 2014-12-07 at 11.08.44 AM

Biscuit Picks

Over the past few months I have been working hard getting things running smoothly at our new Biscuit location. Moving from 1,200 to 10,000 square feet has made life soooo much easier- we have a proper warehouse and office space now! HIGH FIVES! But it also took a lot to fill out the floor space and have it looking as fresh as we wanted it to be.

We have also built a team at the store I am very proud of, everyone works so hard and brings a lot of extras to the table. I never properly shared what we have going on in the new space, and we have a lot of exciting new things to unveil in the coming months, so I thought it might be fun to start a series touring the store and introducing you to the fine people who inhabit it. Today I’m slangin’ one of the 5 bedroom setups we have, and some of our favorite items within:
