hunt & gather: favorite five fridays

we can’t believe christmas is less than a week away! the team has been so busy as we close out the year and prepare for some exciting new projects in 2015! if you didn’t catch the story on chris meloni purchasing the ozzie and harriet house that kishani designed earlier this year, be sure to check out the los angeles times, curbed la, and variety for more information. we happen to think he and his family are going to enjoy all the wonderful updates that kishani made possible while still keeping some original features of this famous television home. as we were putting this week’s favorite five, we were thinking of the ways that even small updates can transform a room, whether it be new lighting, flooring or even a decorative accessory that keeps everyone talking. we think these items will fill a space with joy and keep the conversations flowing well into the new year!

hunt & gather: favorite five fridays

we hope you’ve enjoyed kishani’s holiday gift guides (for her, for him, for kids and for the host) this past week! did you have a favorite? let us know in the comments section for each! hopefully, each gift guide has given you some great ideas for what to buy during this joyous season.

for today’s favorite five, we’ve rounded up an assortment of wonderful finds! this week, our eyes seem to have been drawn to lots of black and wonderful combos of black with brass or gold. black never goes out of style! it can be a very bold and dramatic statement in a room on its own. when it is paired with brass or gold, you immediately get this luxe feel that we enjoy seeing especially around the holidays. take a look and compare below!

hunt & gather: a vegan-friendly thanksgiving table inspiration

being an animal lover, you’d never see a turkey on my table, however, i thought it would be fun to bring the spirit of this and other beautiful creatures to this year’s thanksgiving table. decorative touches of animal decor are found in many of our design projects so it seemed fitting to add them here at our holiday table for fun and conversation! many of the tips we share on our design philosophy translate into our entertaining concepts as well actually. for example, always remember to remix your table — mixing vintage and new, textured and smooth, high and low — then add pops of color throughout to make it come alive. as i’ve said before, this gives a table whimsy, dimension and keeps the eye dancing across a table for all to enjoy. plus, you’ll have more fun putting your table together this way! the holidays are the perfect time to be adventurous, go ahead, let your imagination run wild!
