The past couple of months have been very overwhelming for numerous reasons; one of those reasons being that I moved from East Hollywood to Burbank. Burbank is a combination of suburbia and major studios such as Disney, Warner Brothers, ABC, and NBC. There are quaint, charming houses- bungalow and cottage style- rows of antique shops, small independent restaurants/shops/cafe’s and a modern downtown area. It has a definite small-town feel, which I love coming home to, but its set amongst the entertainment industry. Instead of waking up to a honking Hollywood Blvd, I have orange trees, front and back yards and mountain views. There are lush Northern trees that line the streets and create a welcoming, serene state. It’s also right next to the Toluca Lake area, which has some great hangout spots and giant houses that I will never afford but are nice to look at. I’m still only about 10 minutes from my favorite areas in LA, so it’s really the best of both worlds!
The space is bright and completely renovated- with real hardwood floors! It’s a 3 bedroom house with a backyard, side yard and front yard. There’s central air and heat, a dishwasher, and a washer/dryer. The decorating process is going to come along slowly, but SURELY! We’re trying to go for a modern and minimal feel, but still keep it bright and happy- basically the concept of Jonathan Adler’s brand.
I am decorating my bedroom based on the moon (I know, so LA), so I wanted curtains that had a cosmic vibe but were still simple and minimal. I ordered these cosmic curtains from Urban Outfitters. They remind me of the early-evening sky on an open field.
Speaking of all things lunar, I am going to hang up a moon calendar because they look really beautiful. I like to think the moonlight will tuck me in at night. JUST LET ME BELIEVE IT!!! This one is by Margins on Etsy; it’s letter-pressed by hand and features tree-free cotton paper.
This next calendar is more detailed and uses gold-leaf on heavy recycled matte paper. It’s by Katie Vernon!
A finishing touch to the bedtime dreamscape I’m creating is Uncle Milton’s Moon in My Room. Perhaps intended for children (as most great things are), I actually saw this at a birthday party for a four-year-old! Haha! But why should they get everything fun? Why can’t I have a magical glowing moon comfort me in the night? YOU SEE MY POINT, YOU SEE IT!
Stay tuned for all the renovations we will be incorporating!
