modern day handmade heirlooms.

Rebecca Atwood has always loved quilts and their sense of history. Growing up, there was a crazy quilt hanging next to her parent’s dining room table that was from her mom’s side of the family, and she was fascinated with it and its different triangular fabrics. Her mom also made her own quilts for Rebecca and her sisters with big squares in happy colors. Needless to say, she’s always wanted to make her own collection of quilts. These pretty pastel quilts take their inspiration from Rebecca’s personal experiences, and each one is a truly individual piece, hand-sewn in Brooklyn — one of a kind, modern day heirlooms, handmade and compiled from various pieces of fabric from Rebecca’s studio. In the spirit of ‘repurposing’, she wanted to find a way to use the leftover fabric from production of her other collections, so they wouldn’t go to waste, and ultimately create a handmade, one-of-a-kind heirloom with a unique sense of quirkiness. whether they cover your bed, hang on the wall, or even draped over the back of your sofa, rebecca’s quilts will enhance any space.

wear this there: gracias madre.

gracias madre in los angeles. / sfgirlbybay

this week we’re bringing it home for our wear this there, right to our local favorite — gracias madre. this west hollywood haunt has the dreamiest interiors (and gluten free tortillas) that will stick with you long after you’ve left. their use of tiles gives us serious feels against an otherwise minimally bohemian space that you’ll want to recreate in your own home. we say mix up the cool girl style with a bright yellow frock and a short pom pom heel — the spicy marg won’t be the only fuego moment. a good pair of frames, and the perfect tote bag will have you fitting right in with this chic crowd. this week’s read this there is the Frida Kahlo: The Gisèle Freund Photographs, the works of Gisèle Freund who was welcomed into the mexico city home of legendary couple Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera.

pantone-inspired art.

art collection inspired by pantone's color of the year. / sfgirlbybay

earlier in the week i shared the pretty color pairing of pink + green. well today, we’re taking a look at adding color to your decor palette through art — probably one of the most effortless and affordable makeover maneuvers in my arsenal. invited me to partner with them and curate an art collection inspired by pantone’s 2017 color of the year — ‘greenery’ and i went exploring their huge inventory of artworks for some pretty spring-like prints. i chose vintage european poster prints framed by in white to create a very fresh gallery look. i also added some of my favorite spring blooms, quince in a couple of their green glass vases from their home decor collection to complete the look. voilá — quick and easy and ready to celebrate the spring season!

serenity now.

i suppose there’s some lingering love in the air — romantic vibes leftover from valentine’s day out there in the atmosphere. i also think there’s a lot going on in the world that’s a little unsettling, and sometimes that just makes me wanna crawl under the covers and wait it out. some place serene with super soft sheets — a pretty place to lay my weary head. i love these rooms because they’re just that and they’re all about the bed. spare and sublime — the perfect place to get away from it all.
