behind the scenes

So me and the handsome husband of mine shoot commercial photography together. Last week we got to head up The 2 with friends of ours and shoot a lookbook for John Ruvin eyewear. Heres a couple shots and you can see the rest up on our blog here.


dipped industrial bar stools

We've quickly have found out that our styles blended together is a very industrial, modern/Scandinavian. When settling in the place we were so excited it had a breakfast bar! The only downside was there was little dimension in the space, the fix? Adding redwood dogears to the face of it, all said and done our bar has a new look and for under $15.

After we got the bar refaced we ordered the industrial metal barstools, however when they came they looked anything but industrial... The forever other half instantly said 'you don't like them' when he saw my face as I was opening them. I attempted to 'fake it' but he knew that I didn't. So the next day we went out and bought 3 can's of Rustoleum's Hammered spray paint, and some matte white. Taped them off and finally got them to where we like them.


ojai, ca

We got so lucky and were able to have another one of our favoritest couples from MI come visit. It happens to be the forever other half's bff and his wife happens to be my friend. She too has a blog, Fairly Modern Home, and it is ever lovely!

When they were here we met up with some mutual friends to take a day hike in Ojai (pronounced Oh-Hi) where we rock climbed, hiked and even cliff jumped, basically, it was majestic

room to entertain

We cannot get enough of compact living, the challenge of using every bit of space excites us (yes, we know, we're that boring). When it came time to set up our living room we had to be smart because it's a whopping 140 sq ft. The great thing in all of this is that we don't own a TV, we're kind of those hippy parents that believe playing with a stick is better than in front of a screen. All that aside we do like to have family movie night so instead of a TV we use an iMac connected to a great wireless speaker.

So here is our entertainment center, and you'll probably laugh but it is just that, a center full of entertainment.
