For those of you who don't know - I signed on with Popsugar to produce and direct a 9 episode design show We Spy Style, Eye On Design starring designer, blogger, author, Justina Blakeney. 

Not familiar with her work? Click here. 

It was an absolute pleasure working with my homies at Popsugar and super talented Justina! 

In each episode, Justina breaks down a design trend and shows us how to incorporate that trend into our own homes with a great project. 

This episode is great for both large and small exterior spaces! 

THE PROJECT - CINDER BLOCK PLANTERS!

INTERIOR DESIGN//MY EVER CHANGING OFFICE

So much has been going on professionally (praise baby jeebus) that I STILL haven't settled into my studio space. I'm currently on the hunt for art - thinking I'll do a gallery wall (laaate to the trend, shawty!) 

For now, take a look at some of the new additions to the space. 

Although my desk is an actual dining table, I'm rockin' with a proper desk chair. Ergonomic, adult and all that. 

At the end of my table/desk -- a chair I AM SO EXCITED about! Greyish/blueish, worn in the best way possible. It's tufted (which is unusual for me) but it's perfection. 

Ya'll know every chair gets a textile in Vanessa's world. This one is vintage Navajo.

These cuties are from CB2 and come in a set of three. They're nesting tables with tops that screw off and on so you can play with heights and colors. (Not pictured is silver)

My boo came home with these hilarious trading cards. Laugh when I see them.

SHOP CB2 SIDE TABLES

The JDWA lamp..... BOMBACLOT this thing is fresh! Comes in other finishes as well. This style is concrete and brass. 

SHOP CONCRETE LAMPS


If you Googled 'Modern Planter' this baby comes up, because it's lasted through the ages as a chic, go anywhere indoor style. 

I like cacti because they look like characters, creatures, even! They have so much personality. I look over at this guy and he makes me smile. Also, he is a "he"

SHOP MODERN PLANTERS

Thank goodness for flea markets because if it weren't for them, we wouldn't find random magazine holders from random decades (80's maybe) for $15 that fit perfectly under our tables to hold our whatevers. Made sense right?

Books in full horizontal glory. 

Tivoli Audio system - it plays radio (KCRW head over here) and is bluetooth to pick up your fave playlist. 

SHOP BLUETOOTH AUDIO 


When I said textiles for every chair... I meant it. They get shifted around depending on my mood and the current color scheme. This one is ANOTHER flea market find.

DECOR INSPO// EFFORTLESS PARISIAN STYLE

While the rest of the world checks out the shows from Paris Fashion Week, I find myself checking out Parisian apartments. What are we noticing? The "Parisian effortless chic" thing isn't reserved for fashion, it translates into their decor tastes too.

Take a look at these dreamy interiors...
