You know me...working on a Saturday! But with temps finally below 100 and a view like this, you won't hear me complaining. Got some good things brewing at Bighorn Golf Club.

Looking forward to a fun meeting today, when my client and I will decide just how to put this gem of a house back together! As I tell my clients, "It gets worse before it gets better!" Recently, she looked at me and said, "You know, I used to have a front door." And she will again -- and we are both excited for the wall of glass with the five foot wide glass pivoting front door. Today we get to decide on wallpapers, fabrics and furniture. What a happy Friday indeed!

Happy Friday! Is it happy hour yet? In Palm Springs, we have our cocktail culture down to a science. No matter where you live, add some swank to your mixology with a set of vintage glassware.

Thursday motivation. Autumn is already shaping up to be busy, so my nose is back to the grindstone. What are your goals for the rest of the year? With hard work and good intentions, anything is possible!

What a great holiday weekend! So far I have: enjoyed good wine with friends, slept in, taken long walks with Harley, volunteered for Sanctuary Palm Springs, met with clients (briefly), attended a fundraiser at @toucanstikilounge, and had a great date night with @davidwclark5. And the weekend is only half over! Now...somewhere in Palm Springs, a pool is calling my name.

Tip 6: Speak Italian -- When it comes to sofas, the workhorses of the room -- I favor modern and new. Vintage upholstery tends to be out of scale for our contemporary homes (and bodies!) To keep things fresh and comfortable, my trick is to mix Italian modern upholstery with vintage lamps, chairs, and tables for a blend that is simultaneously now and totally timeless.

From my latest book #makingmidcenturymodern (link in profile, available on Amazon) -- Tip #5: Let Photos Tell Your Story: As much as I love vintage celebrity photographs, or those by Slim Aarons -- and I do -- lately I have been surrounding myself with family photographs. What better way to channel the joie de vivre of your mid-century predecessors than by letting them smile upon you? And don't think you need to relegate the photos to a hallway or dusty album. In my kitchen, I placed a photograph of my aunt (and godmother), Audrey, on the open shelf where I keep my everyday china. Her beauty and style inspire me daily.

P.S. - Isn't m Auntie beautiful? The Snoopy and Woodstock shakers are relics from my childhood. Why keep such treasures packed away? They remind me of where I come from. @peanutsmovie #snoopy #woodstock

Every now and then I need this reminder. It's Monday and a fresh week -- what are you up to? Remember, you ARE awesome. I believe in you. The world is your oyster. With good intentions and hard work, anything is possible.

Easy like Sunday morning. #Harley

Saturday morning new project meeting. This little gem in Palm Desert was built by my client's grandparents in the 1950s, as a vacation home from cold Chicago winters. They have enjoyed every Christmas in this house for over 40 years. After a minor flood, we are about to embark on a sensitive restoration and update. Stay tuned!

FRIYAY vibes....busy getting a property ready for clients' arrival this afternoon. There are worse places to work. Even in the heat, Palm Springs is hard to beat!

#TBT: The kitchen I designed for the second #christopherkennedycompound, back in 2015. Brining back the green kitchen, baby! Who is ready for a 2018 Show House and @modernism_week?
