A Look Inside Peggy North’s Venice Bungalow

Peggy North's Venice bungalow Peggy North's Venice bungalow Peggy North's Venice bungalow
Peggy North is an arbiter of all things entertaining. Born in Paris and now living in LA, her taste was in such high demand that it inspired an event planning business with a retail component better known as Fire and Creme (highly recommend browsing her Instagram for party inspiration). Having the pleasure of attending a handful of Peggy’s events, not to mention I collaborated with her on an entertaining video which you can watch here, I’ve experienced her work first hand and she is a true talent.  She’s also incredibly smart, confident and powerful and every time I hang out with her I leave inspired and full of her French life lessons.

Rip + Tan recently profiled Peggy and her 1912 Venice Craftsman beach bungalow and it’s a great read in which she spills her style and sensibility secrets – check it out here.  To see more of North’s lovely home click ‘read more.’

It Started With A Calvin Klein Rug

IMG_3377 IMG_4801
When we moved into our new house in December and had a guest bedroom for the first time ever I was VERY excited. I always feel very weird about visitors staying at hotels so I insist people stay with us which has meant either sleeping on the couch or air mattress – not ideal!

Now that friends can stay comfortably at our home, it’s my mission to make a relaxing and zen room for them to stay in.  You know, a very Calvin Klein Home feel. Something perfectly clean, simple and minimal yet warm, homie and textured.

After popping into the Calvin Klein Home store in NY and snapping what felt like 100 inspiration pictures, I ordered the first big item for the room: the Calvin Klein Home Mesa Barit rug (it’s not available on their site but there are similar ones are available on calvinklein.com).  It’s so simple but when guest step out of bed and land their feet on the lush soft fabric, they’ll feel the warm comfort.

Can’t wait to finish this room and share the pics! Next task: the bedding!
