Starting this Saturday, I will be visiting 5 west coast cities to celebrate the launch of my book, Simply Styling. Together with Room & Board, I will be in Culver City, Costa Mesa, San Francisco, Seattle and Denver. If you live in any of these locations, I would love to meet you and talk shop!! I, of course, am nervous that no one will show up, so please, I beg of you, let’s HANG OUT! Hahaha. Seriously though, I am way cooler in person than online, so let’s meet…:) [more]

Simply Styling Book Tour

A few weeks ago we celebrated the release of Simply Styling in my lovely city, Boise Idaho. It was a perfect event, full of my family and friends who have been so important to me and my family. West Elm hosted the event and Wildflower provided the gorgeous flower arrangements. Designers Nicole Powell, Lauren Smyth and SG contributor Janna Smith gave some fantastic tips for decorating for the fall. If you came to the event, thank you!! [more]

I love it when great architectural details make a huge comeback. If you haven’t noticed, gone are the heavily textured popcorn ceilings of yesteryear (does anyone really miss them?), and in their place you’ll find whitewashed trusses, exposed rustic beams, and elegant shiplap. Yes, wooden ceilings are back in a BIG way and it makes me want to do a giant fist pump. [more]

Who doesn’t love a good bargain?! Even if you make all the money in the world, you are lying to yourself if you say that you don’t like to save a little money. is a fabulous free service that let’s you save and track your favorite fashion items, right down to size and color, alerting you once the price drops (including coupon codes), or when it comes back in stock. There are items that I have wanted to purchase if they went on sale, but I completely forgot about them! [more]
