Blushworthy Bedding

I have been daydreaming about the blush colored bedding at Restoration Hardware’s Baby & Child. Yes, it is kid stuff, but I love it still.

The display rooms at the store were so beautiful and whimsical, I wanted to permanently set up camp in one of the awesome monogrammed tents and stay forever. The fluffy beds were layered perfectly with plush pillows, faux furs, and pintucked duvet covers, all welcoming you to snuggle up and read a bedtime story. I actually think the delicately colored bedding would work well in any room, no matter your age, as the decor was a far cry from Carebears and Unicorns. It radiates luxury and comfort in a way that is also inviting, rather than pretentious. The boys’ decor was just as amazing, but since I am a girly girl, I gravitated toward the frills.

I urge you to take a peek online or go to the store in Santa Monica to revel in all the pretty little things the store has to offer and to be inspired by their designers hard work.

The Bungalow at The Fairmont

Sometimes you don’t have to travel far to experience something great. The Bungalow is attached to The Fairmont Hotel in Santa Monica and is the brainchild of Brent Bolthouse. It is a surfer chic  renovated 1947 beach cottage made into a hip hangout for a breezy summer day and into night. There are five distinct spaces within The Bungalow. The Study, a main bar, an outside deck, the State Room and East Garden, and a game room. With this many different aesthetics, you are sure to find a spot that suits your needs. 

I personally love the patio because there are lanterns and lights strewn from the trees, sofas strategically placed for lounging and catching up with friends, and little nooks and tables for a more intimate feel. The ambiance makes you feel as if you stumbled upon this secret party on a little known beach. The only dose of reality is the daunting line that bends around the door for entry. While it can be annoying to wait in line, the bright side is everyone gets in, no glances up and down from the door guy. Just a check of your ID and a smile for your patience and you are in. 

Grab a glass of the red sangria, some chips and guacamole and gab the night away with great friends.
