When Kristin Reiter and Valerie Killeen’s BLEACH BLACK hit the airwaves it somehow felt like the internet was more complete. Two girls, two perspectives, one blog.  I was into it. 

Then one day in 2009 I showed up for a Lucky Mag photo-shoot and there they were, Kristin and Val, live in the flesh. They were even better in person.  Not only did they run this rad blog but they both had very demanding high profile jobs – we’re talking Creative Director at Nike (Kristin currently) and Design Director at Element Skateboards (Val up until this past June) – and not only were they as raw as the blog eluded to but they were incredibly warm.

We’ve remained friends since the shoot and every time I see either one of them I’m eager to learn about their latest and greatest.  Whether it’s creating and selling nail-polish (dickweed and jizz), thesnow white iphone case,’ starting a new job, launching a new site or being the face of a campaign, they’re both constantly moving the needle on and off the dubl-u dubl-u dubl-u.

In honor of Val’s newest venture SHELTER BLACKwhere she curates inspired living, features remarkable spaces, DIY home projects, designer doppelganger looks-for-less AND sells her own creations - she gave Refinery 29 a tour of her DIY and thrift filled O.C. digs. More of which is after the jump!
