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.’

Joan’s on Third is one of my absolute favorite LA lunch spots. The food, the ambiance, the people watching, it’s the best!
The owner, Joan McNamara, recently opened up her chic loft to Remodelista and the kitchen is just as one would imagine…perfection! As is the rest of her cozy industrial home which is full of wonderful antique and vintage finds. “I’ve collected so many special things over the years. I love antiques shops and flea markets” says Joan.

Consider Amy Mellen the queen of neutrals. As Creative Director of Calvin Klein home, and an employee there for over 15 years, she’s helped define muted palettes as we know them today.
“Personally, I don’t have a drop of color in my apartment. And my house in Wassaic, NY, doesn’t really either. It’s a sea of neutrals. In our products, we don’t do multicolors. We might do a spectrum of blues and some grays, but we’d never add in purples or oranges. And the color we do use is a dirtier, muddier version. Even with ceramics, it’s always more tonal. To begin, though, I always look to nature for color. Just take a flower or butterfly wings. You could never dream up these colors, but there they are, flying around in the wild.” – Mellen
She recently opened her office doors for a photo-shoot/interview with One Kings Lane and it’s as simple and elegant as one would image. Read on about how she stays inspired, where she shops and how she manages it all here.
