Lighting Solution with Lamps Plus

As you know I have been working on decorating my new space for almost half a year now, and finally all pieces are about to come together. The final touches were lighting and art. While art is already in the mail, I was finally able to concentrate on lighting. I am thrilled I discovered Lamps Plus at a perfect time, they have so many amazing lighting solutions. Their table lamps help me satisfy two rules of thumb: You should have a mix of light sources at different levels and appropriate lighting for whatever you are doing in the room (i.e. reading).  Go check out Lamps Plus site and their inspiration pages for more!

Home Favorites

A lot of you know that I moved last September. I left my beloved Beverly Hills, where I lived for almost 5 years, for vibrant Venice Beach - a completely different area in Los Angeles located next to the Pacific Ocean. It took me a long time to make that decision, but once I made it, I wanted to move fast, as we all know that moving is one of the most stressful experiences in life. I found a lovely modern apartment, where I am temporarily living, while getting familiar with the area and prepping for a more permanent settlement here. The new place has a beachy Venice-appropriate vibe as opposed to my classy black-and-white Beverly Hills pad. Naturally, I didn't want to bring my favorite pieces from the old apartment, but I also didn't want to get rid of them. Putting things in storage felt like a perfect solution, but I didn't want the hassle of actually arranging a delivery and going to the storage unit myself. Luckily I found the wonderful company Make Space, that takes care of all the storage problems for me. Their team came over at a designated time, picked everything up (and packed it!), and also provided me with their free stylish storage bins. I didn't have to lift a finger! Any time I want any or ALL of my items back, I can simply order them online (I can see everything I am storing with them on my account online!) and their wonderful team will bring it all back to me.  And all of this for a very affordable price! It's a super easy and convenient way of approaching storage nowadays. Gone are the day of self storage, and I couldn't be happier about it.
The apartment where I am currently staying, came in furnished, and while I didn't want to refurnish it as I really like the design, I needed to add several details to make my temporary place feel like home.  You see glimpses and pieces of it on my social media, but here are just a few of my favorite additions to my current home.
My bed is super important to me, so the first thing I did was upgrade my bedding to a luxurious Brooklinen collection.
