With our more major house renovations just around the corner, this year I have a feeling my Christmas shopping list for Rupe is going to read a lot more like a Home Depot receipt (nothing says Merry Christmas like drywall or a new toilet right?). I did however put together this round-up of my favorite “for him” gifts so that you can get the men in your life something a little more exciting.
Although, I may just have to breakdown and get those handsome screwdrivers. He can use it around the house so I think it still serves double duty right? ;)
I also started a “gifts” Pinterest board if you want to follow along and get some more gifty options as I do all my other holiday shopping.

Traditionally these textiles were woven by a Berber bride’s female relatives to be used and worn in a wedding ceremony and they are now often used as blankets, wall hangings, rugs, throws, and some people have made smaller pieces into pillows like above. There is no denying their influence on that sassy little mini skirt either. Happy Handira shopping.
Now that I have started to get the living room to a place that looks like someone actually lives there, I turned my attention to the dining room.
While I was searching for a dining table, I came across so many great options and it was tough to make a decision. Here, I narrowed it down to my top selections in case any of you are also in the market for a new good looking place to pull up a chair.
I’m packing my bags again… this time for Wyoming! My sister lives there with her family so I am heading over for a little wild west adventure but mostly to meet my new nephew, and snuggle that little peanut.
It has already snowed a few times at their house so I am bringing along some of my coziest.

Ok guys, the time has come for me to part with some of my favorite furniture pieces, tears may shed. I think I’ve mentioned before, the new house has much smaller rooms than our old townhouse. We basically moved from an ultra modern loft-like space to an old “cozy” bungalow (that we are slowly modernizing). So, we ran into the problem that most of our furniture just doesn’t fit. While I wish I could continue hoarding these pieces in my garage, it would be nice to put the money towards new furniture that works in our new space.
There are three items up for grabs starting with this walnut dining table. No matter how hard I tried to shrink it with a “command, T” action, it stubbornly stayed its much too large size. It is a Nuetra Table from Room Service made of walnut and steel. It measure 96″ x 36″ x 30″. We paid $2300 for it a few years ago and are asking $1200.
Second up is equally as heart breaking to give up, our credenza. It is also from Room Service, measures 90″ x 20″ x 27.5″ and is macassar and white lacquer. Original price was $2800 we are selling it for $1600.
And finally, this sofa-bed. When I was using our spare room for my office I had to get rid of the bed but we still wanted a really nice place for guests to come and sleep, so we splurged on this American Leather Comfort Sleeper from H.D. Buttercup (they are also available at Design Within Reach). The thing about this sofa bed is that it feels like a real-deal proper mattress. It is engineered differently then your normal sleeper so that there are no bars or funky springs to poke you while you sleep. You can read more about it here. It folds out to a queen sized bed, closed it measures 68″ x 36″ x 39″. The original price was $3600 and we are asking $1900.
Each item is in great condition. Local pick-up only (los angeles). Post a comment or email me if you are interested! If they don’t sell here I will be putting them on craigslist, but I wanted to give you guys the first chance.
I’m already planning my wardrobe for a Palm Springs retreat next week. I’ll be heading there with a big group of talented ladies for some fun in the sun. My bags are packed and I’m ready for a weekend in the desert heat.

This weekend we spent a lot of time working on and shopping for the house. Since we are still living in an empty shell while we are working away at the interior, my relief comes in the form of furniture shopping. :) At least I know there will be somewhere to sit in there someday.
We hit up the Rose Bowl flea market last weekend and came up empty handed but the Long Beach Flea market this Sunday was a different story. We scored the cow hide rug ($125), (cracker ate most of this one so it was about time we replaced it), two of the green lamps ($25 each), and these amazing chairs ($100 each).
The material is worn on the chairs and they are missing some buttons on the seat, so the plan is to reupholster them, but I so fell in love with the shape. I hadn’t seen this silhouette before. I’m assuming they are Danish but could be wrong. Does anyone recognize them by chance?

1st Dibs recently asked me to be a part of their “Saturday Shopper” campaign on their site and I jumped at the chance to be able to curate my top picks from their huge selection of extra special pieces.
I put together my dream list of unique items with our new house in mind. Every piece I selected reflects my aesthetic and gives you a peek at the overall look I hope to achieve in the new place! Hop on over to 1st Dibs to get all the product details and to see my full selection.
Happy shopping and happy Saturday!
