every project i embark on with a client is equally unique and exciting. this particular project was a blast to work on. our client did not want to shy away from fun, bold colors which is always ideal for me! we set out to create an inviting and masculine ambiance, utilizing unique and vintage finds to add that extra layer of interest. another plus with this project was that this client wasn’t necessarily pinned down to one era or style of design, which allowed us the freedom to create a space that incorporated a mix of pieces, resulting in a uniquely fresh environment filled with pops of color.
hello again everyone! to continue our celebration of the 1 year anniversary of vintage remix, we have another favorite project to highlight:
this project was so much fun to work on! a combination of bohemian and feminine accents gave this hollywood hills home such unique character. i loved mixing patterns and colors from the wallpaper to the pillows, and a fresh palette of black and whites with pops of color let the lush outdoor garden spaces shine. the mix of unique elements and flea market treasures resulted in a charming hideaway nestled into the hollywood hills.

and now for the first round of our fave photos…this particular project is near and dear to my heart. we transformed this spanish colonial home for a good friend of mine using a mix of global glam pieces and some eclectic influences (with the addition of a few southern kitsch elements). the result was a warm and vibrant mix with pops of color such as kelly green on the walls. the house was transformed into a chic abode fit for this hip angeleno and it was such a pleasure to put it all together.

many of you have asked us about the beaded shower curtains seen in kishani’s vintage remix book (photos above). we thought it only fair that we spill a few diy secrets for our most valued followers! the truth is, this shower curtain is made up of a beaded room divider layered on top of a plain shower curtain! to help you recreate this look in your home please read the diy instructions below:
you will need:
1- beaded curtain, we recommend koyal wholesale’s version seen here.
1- plain white shower liner
here are the simple steps:
1. to start, line the holes of the divider up with the curtains’
2. put the rings though the beaded curtain and plain shower liner to hold both together
3. voilà! and you are done! now wasn’t that easy?

lately, we have found ourselves falling deeply (and madly) in love with onyx. the colors and patterns naturally made up of banded varieties of chalcedony are beyond beautiful! the more varieties we become familiar with, the more we are convinced that these are truly natural works of art. who wouldn’t want to have these beautiful onyx slabs integrated in their home? we know we sure would! onyx room? yes please!
here are some photos of our favorite onyx varieties:
