hunt & gather: favorite five fridays

spring is officially here! we’re not sure about you, but this season makes us want to be outside as much as possible! we’re fortunate enough to live in los angeles where the weather lends itself to many wonderful spring time activities outside. we plan to take advantage of that! hope you enjoy this week’s favorite five…there’s lots of color to share with you, plus some pieces that will come in handy for entertaining or setting up a boho chic retreat. if you have a favorite from this list, let us know in the comments!

hunt & gather: favorite five fridays

we’ve had an incredible week here at kpi! new projects are commencing while others are getting close to completion. we’re excited to share what we’re seeing from the moments we step onto a property to begin a remodel all the way through the final punch list! be sure you’re following kishani on instagram! she’s constantly sharing wonderful details that really give you a perspective on what she loves and her design process. one of the things we love that she teaches us is when to skimp and splurge! that’s part of the art of the remix that she coined in her book. we think these favorite finds of the week would work beautifully with that mission of incorporating new, vintage and reinterpreted custom pieces to give a room lots of personality.

project diaries: get the look from molly sims’ home featured in lonny

in this installment of the project diaries, we take a look back at molly sims‘ home which made the march cover of lonny! such a fun project for the kpi team to work on! if you haven’t viewed the story online, be sure to visit the magazine’s website for many exclusive pics here to get a complete view of what kishani designed for molly and her growing family. if you loved the feature, guess what? you can actually buy many of the exact or similar pieces from rummage directly! some require a bit of lead time, so always consult with our shop directly to get exact information for the item that you are choosing! hope you enjoy these pieces as much as we love them having them in our inventory!

molly sims and kishani perera via kishani perea blog

molly and kishani have worked together on several homes, but this one was particularly special because it is the home that molly is raising her family.

blue and green drip glaze lamp via kishani perera inc.

saturated colors from the accessories, lighting and wall art make the living room really pop against the neutrals! this mid-century blue and green drip glaze lamp is very similar in shape to the one in the living room. if you love the style, you have to view our wonderful inventory of additional drip glaze items here!

 bristol side table via kishani perera inc.

isn’t this a beauty? we love the bristol side table designed by kishani for molly’s living room! it is made of wood with an antiqued mirror top. the great thing about this piece is that we can make it custom in size and with different finishes if you have a specific design need!

mud-cloth textiles via kishani perera inc.

tie dyed textiles are so popular right now! we love the options kishani used throughout molly’s home, but these mud-cloth textiles in yellow, orange, green and purple are equally perfect for injecting your home with color this spring! if these textiles speak to your design sensibilities, we can create custom pillows using one or more of these options!

cadogan coffee table via via kishani perera inc.

if you did a double take when you saw the cadogan coffee table in molly’s living room, we don’t blame you! another of our favorite pieces designed by kishani herself! we particularly love the bulb turned legs! such a handsome piece for any home!

derby poufs by kishani perera inc.

two items not shown in the living room photos of molly’s home, but we would be remiss not to mention are these gorgeous derby poufs! the nailhead trim details that kishani added to the overall design are so striking! we can easily custom design these in other sizes and fabrics too!

albin mobile in earth tones via kishani perera inc.

every baby needs a mobile over their bed! the handpainted neon one in little brooks’ room was so unique and artistic that kishani made sure to design another with earth tones. and yup, you guessed it…custom orders are available in either color wave through our shop!
