MOS My Own Space


I can’t believe I haven’t written about these guys sooner. I visited MOS for the first time last summer and fell head over heels in love, but couldn’t remember their name to save my life. While organizing my business card files recently, I came across a MOS card and ping! the lightbulb in my head popped on and I remembered that *this* is the store I loved in La Jolla. If you’re fortunate enough to live in the beautiful La Jolla area, you have to get over to MOS because it’s a great source to tap into for your modern design fix. They have the sweetest showroom – everything is laid out so well that you’ll want to move right into the store, with everything arranged so well, it makes selecting items so much easier. You’ll find their friendly and knowledgeable team of design experts equally refreshing, willing to answer any question and spend time chatting with you about everything from the weather to their latest line of bedding.

MOS offers many stunning quality collections, from FOLD bedding to Italian and Scandinavian furniture, like this platform bed that serves two purposes, sleeping and book storage. Some other fresh furniture finds, the stackable files with casters constructed of birch with a gunmetal finish, their super hip metro unit with legs, and the popular Starck design Dr. No stackable armchairs. If it’s in your budget, shop their rugs, too. I’m jonesin’ for a topissimmo rug designed by Nani Marquina. Drool!

If you’re looking to simply add to your home with the right accessory or lighting, MOS delivers when it comes to the small stuff, too! With lots of fun accessories on the cheap, like this pino funnel, you’re bound to find the perfect something. Visit them at 7840 Girard Avenue in La Jolla, CA (then pop on over to Wahoo’s for a fish taco) or shop online at their impressive website.

Psst: MOS has some great tips on selecting wall color that some of you may really enjoy reading.

coffee + cre8tive {may 16 ’06}


I really like this Pool Party cotton poplin print by Heather Ross for Munki Munki. With the long memorial day weekend approaching, do you have any pool parties or events to attend? Cookouts? It’s been raining and flooding so much here for the past 7 days that we nearly have our own pool behind our house… But, I decided to turn all this rain into a positive by writing more, working on some designs, further developing my business, exercising harder and longer at the gym, and spending lots of time on organizing my home. Plus, I spent 3 days with one of my closest friends and we had an absolute blast. Being stuck indoors has actually been a good thing for me.

Don’t you think that’s the key to true happiness? The ability to have control over your emotions and decide how you will let something that appears negative, to affect you in a positive sense? Vital!

Monday, Monday!

Just got back from the gym, not much posting going on here today since my friend is still up and we’re off for a spa afternoon and shopping. You know, a girl has to take a day off now and then!

Hope you have a great Monday and I’ll see you bright and early tomorrow with lots of fresh finds that I’ve been saving up!

See you soon!

Sundays with Tea: Mocha Dunk Mug


I’m here enjoying tea with my friend Katie this morning, trying to figure out what we’d like to do today. Maybe visit a museum, go to the gym, stay home and watch classic movies… It’s one of those rainy Sunday mornings where one lingers… Not doing much, just dreaming of what the afternoon can hold. I hope you’re having a lingering, relaxing Sunday today. If you’re online looking for a few fresh finds, visit Mocha online. They are an UK-based modern home store. I adore their clever little dunk mug designed by Dominic Skinner. Available in righty or lefty versions, with the perfect cookie (aka biscuit) storage. This is the sweetest mug ever!

Wishing you a happy Sunday, a cup of warm tea with honey, and a joyous afternoon!
