Like most women we know, we’re suckers for jewelry. From sweet and delicate to fun and funky, we’re always looking to add a new “favorite” to our collections. That’s why we’re thrilled to be collaborating with local Bay Area-based designer Shelly Harper!

Shelly’s brass pieces are modern, cool and make a statement. As Shelly describes, her jewelry is “meant to empower, flatter and accentuate the true nature of the wearer.” Shelly took the time to sit down with us to let us into her design process. Click Read More to read her interview!


Q: How would you describe your work?

trés chic monogram moment


It’s no secret that we are smitten with green! This stunning bedroom, which we spied on the PB Teen’s Tumblr, with its bold and energizing color combo has us particularly giddy this week.

The vibrant greens are perfectly paired with accents of black and white. The contrasting neutral tones balance the bright colors beautifully. We love the crispness of the sheets and casual chic monogram against the green chinoiserie-covered headboard. Whoever lays their heads  on the those swoon-worthy personalized shams must sleep well at night.

Mgram-terrific totes

For today’s busy world, the tote is the multi-tasker and must-have accessory for every woman. The term tote literally means “to carry,” so it is no wonder the tote is the perfect carry-all for all of life’s necessities, big or small!

A good tote will hold your laptop and work supplies one moment, then double as a grocery bag for a pit-stop at the farmer’s market the next.

Now that the weather is finally reaching reasonable temperatures, you can pack your tote with a good book, sun screen, and a blanket and head to the nearest park for a relaxing day. We just couldn’t live with out these chic life savers. We’d love to know how you use yours!

The contrasting prints and the primary colors make this a cozy space that’s so modern and fun!

With a room this jampacked with eye-catching design, it’s no wonder it was created under the expert eye of interior designer Ali Fuge of Amanda Nisbit Designs. She calls this West Village bedroom home. The geometric patterned blue headboard works perfectly with the both the monogrammed and bold print pillows by tying together the same hue! The pops of brilliant red add an energetic contrast – the perfect thing to wake up to on a Monday morning!
