Have you “Marked Your Spot” yet?


Our #MarkYourSpot Instagram Contest is going strong! We love seeing pics of all your adorable doggies filling our Instagram stream.

One particularly special pup we’ve met is Toast of @ToastMeetsWorld. Rescued from a King Charles Cavalier puppy mill in New York, Toast has no teeth but she doesn’t care. She’s all about living her life in style! That’s her and her sister Muppet in the pic above, rocking their all new personalized Italian Leather Dog Collars. You must check out Toast’s Instagram feed – her pics will add a chuckle to your day!

thinking green with great style


We’re feeling mighty green today! Did you know that only 6% of all plastic waste in the United States is recycled?? There are myriad ways you can make a difference – from something as simple as switching your incandescent lightbulbs to LEDs or spending two minutes less in the shower, even the smallest actions can add up to make a big difference. 

Here are a few ways for you to conserve today, beautifully of course!

trés chic monogram moment



This lux bathroom is looking fab thanks to the pop of those monogrammed towels in a vibrant kelly green. The room, designed by Traci Zeller Designs, puts a glamorous spin on the idea of a bathroom by mixing retro wallpaper, high gloss lacquer furniture and sleek chrome to give this space a modern and decidedly gentlemanly vibe!

From top to bottom we’re loving it. Trés chic indeed!!

shelly harper is just our type!

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.
