{la petite magazine} | rbd helps style a modern kids photo shoot!

I hope you all are recovering from the overabundance of sweets consumed yesterday. My body is still asking me why I ate so much chocolate carmel. :] Speaking of sweets, I have some SWEET news. I'm super excited to announce I'm in La Petite MagazineSarah Wert of Modern Kids Photography asked that I help out with the day of styling for her La Petite Magazine shoot. The shoot actually took place in one of my client's home, which turned out to be a perfect setting.

Theme: feathers, tepees, and Indians, which happens to be the hottest trend right now. I loved the feather crowns, rustic yet playful. Sarah's images are featured on pages 59-70 of the magazine, and for all you DIYers out there, check out the headband tutorial from curlybirds.

Loving the grass headpiece? The straw head piece was made by yours truly. Hehe :] I'm sure the beautiful little girl had something to do with how well it turned out. Thanks Sarah for letting me be a part of such a fun day! You can check out more amazing photos on Sarah's blog; and if I haven't said it enough already, isn't Sarah AMAZING!?

Hope your week is off to a fantastic start!

{I Heart DIY}: Lighting

Well, yet another day of perusing the web and once again a superb find. Thanks to my friends and former colleagues Steve Johnson, Sarah Soler, and Rebecca Otto, who formed Johnson/Soler, an Interior Design firm in Chicago, that creates some pretty great and unique spaces. So many talented friends I have. I'm loving the inspiration! Check out their blog. It's a great read and and excellent resource for new, budget friendly and DIY design ideas.

One DIY project that has my head spinning, this Chandelier by the talented lighting designer, Lindsey Adelman . So earthy, rustic...yet modern. So my style.

Thanks to THE BRICK HOUSE for sharing this wonderful post. The Brick House is a DIYer on sterroids...such an inspiration. I'll be checking out his blog daily. I hope to have photos up soon of my newest DIY project creating Lindsey's chandelier

{I Heart DIY}: Wine Box Shelf

Yesterday Sarah introduced me to her blog, House and Fig. The house they purchased had a great fig tree, hence the clever name. Here she blogs about the home she and her husband Joe are renovating. Two handy people I must say. Take a look at their clever wine shelf Joe made out of scraps, found at the wonderful store SCRAPS. Anyone who lives in the Bay Area should definitely check out this place. Her place is still underway. I can't wait to collaborate on the interiors!
