If you’ve read any of Andy Cohen’s books, you know he’s been working on his current and expanding Greenwich Village apartment. I was so excited to see his spread in Elle Decor this month now that it’s finally finished! Take a look at his whimsical space:

I love that artwork incorporating the word “sweety.” If you follow AC on twitter, that probably gave you a laugh.  Check out the full Elle Decor article here.

I’ve blogged on her apartment before, but the lovely Carol Radziwill just refreshed her stunning SOHO apartment.  Just when you thought something couldn’t get any better, it does.  Aspen decorator John Bossard helped Carol knock this out of the park:

Life Update

July 28th, 2017

I have less than two weeks maternity left and wow, has it gone fast. Miss Taylor is a little over 10 weeks (and 10 pounds!) and smiles all the time. We have settled into a great rhythm and could not be more thankful for such a happy little lady. We’re excited for the weekend because it’s always nice to have our whole little family at home. For now, here’s some links for your Friday:

This will make all the men in my family nauseous

Maybe I want to go to this?

I have to have these

Is this true? Dying for a formal announcement

Did you catch my post on her new house?

This is funny (and 100% me)

My new favorite top that I cannot stop wearing

The world’s softest jammies for your kiddos

A really fun Manhattan studio apartment 

Happy Friday!

It’s no secret I’m slightly obsessed with Mindy Kaling.  She is hilarious and so relate-able. If you haven’t read one of her books yet, you’re really missing out. She recently purchased and renovated a home in Hancock Park and just like her personality, it’s very bold.  Working with interior designer Katie Ridder, the end result is lovely. Take a look:

Life Update: I’m a Mom

June 10th, 2017

After three and a half years of prayer and struggle, we are parents to the most precious bean I could have ever imagined. Per usual, God’s timing is always perfect. I assumed the entire pregnancy that she would look like Tim, so when the nurse brought her around, I was shocked. I’m pretty sure I gasped. Everyone seems to think she looks like me. Either way, I love her so much and still seem to be in a bit of shock that she’s ours. Here’s a few things I’ve discovered post pregnancy:

* I cannot stomach coffee the way I used to… and now seem to be a tea drinker

* My voice is significantly lower (which is probably a good thing ha)

* I thought I “wasn’t sleeping” at all during my third trimester.  HA… think again

* I didn’t know I could love or worry about anything so much

* Changing diapers is not bad at all. I’m so eager to help her

* I’m pretty sure Taylor will have a great sense of humor as she has already mastered side eye at the ripe age of three weeks

* Being someone’s main food source is NO JOKE

* Parenthood emphasizes the need for complete dependency on God (I am certainly not in control)

We are so thankful for you little lady and pray daily that we are good parents. You were worth every day of waiting.

Gifts Fo Yo Momma

May 11th, 2017

Shop: 1 // 2 // 3 // 4 // 5 // 6 // 7 // 8 // 9 // 10 // 11

Mother’s Day is on Sunday and if you have a pregnant brain like me, you may be running around last minute.  Today I’m sharing some of my favorite things that could double as a great gift! I have really been eyeing these Kate Spade mules (which  also come in a delicious camel color). I have one of these Tory Burch candles and besides being a beautiful accessory, they smell like heaven. I know this is an old suggestion, but if you don’t have a Longchamp Tote by now, you need to snag one.  It’s the perfect travel bag and folds up so nicely.

What are you doing on Sunday? Don’t forget to treat ‘yo Momma!

Lauren Conrad recently accepted an offer on her Pacific Palisades home. This property was featured on a catch up special for The Hills and I loved it.  I have to say, I get so attached to things. I can’t imagine selling something after only living there two years.  Not to mention, after our last move, I NEVER want to move again.  Take a look.  It’s clean, fresh and dreamy.

Ugh, dreamy right?

Unless you live under a rock, you’ve probably seen the styling of Syd and Shea McGee floating around the internet. The owners of Studio McGee, a firm founded just three years ago, is taking the design world by the horns.  I love her style and bold use of pattern.  They recently did a project here in Denver. Take a look:

If you’re somehow not familiar, make sure you check them out here! Shea is definitely one to watch.

I’m so excited to finally reveal project nursery!

A Very Pregnant Life Update

April 21st, 2017

I have been SO quiet on the blog… apologies! I am exhausted.  Still working full time (not to mention my side clients), my creativity is usually spent by the time I get home. I went to a shower a few weekends ago and some ladies were talking about my blog.  I  feel so honored when anyone tells me they’re a reader.  Sometimes it feels like you’re talking to yourself! I am eight months pregnant now and very much looking the part.  The above is from Easter Sunday. We are in full nesting mode as our little lady will be here in less than four weeks.  Bitty scratched her cornea and has been in a cone for quite some time…

Needless to say, she has not been happy about it.  She got a great report on Monday, but has still been scratching so we are putting the cone on when needed.  Hopefully little Miss will be in the all clear next week.  We are going to the groomer today (after a three week delay by our vet) and I am guessing she will have much more pep in her step afterwards.  Like any lady, she is grumpy when she doesn’t look her best.

She is very aware something is going on with me and follows me around the minute I get home. I hope she loves the baby, but someone barks at the TV currently if a baby is crying… haha.  This old Shih Tzu is in for it! I am having the nursery photographed this afternoon, so stay tuned for a post this weekend.  I can’t wait to share.  I am in love with the space.

Hope you have had a wonderful week!

Katy
