Living in a bungalow means finding the right coastal design elements to decorate your space and not just filling the space with seashells and ocean relics collected from my treasure hunts. Tucked away in Aptos is a store that is filled with everything you could want to achieve this look. Carrying lines like Bella Notte linens, a plethora of coffee table books, and throw pillows from around the globe, The Warmth Company, is your one stop shop for quintessential California beach house finds.
Spending hours looking through every detail of their store, I could easily envision seashell chandeliers hanging from my ceilings and pieces that mimic my travels abroad but never made it home with me, scattered throughout the bungalow.
I love a store that has it’s own style and is curated to create the perfect room, every piece in this store is thoughtful. The name speaks true to the vibe of the store, a warm sunny day at the beach. I am looking forward to checking out their second space, The Point, in Santa Cruz during my next day trip up the coast.

Yesterday I had such a wonderful day with my business partner Shirley and Christine Caria, co-owner of what is sure to become Sausalito’s hottest store, Klozet. After spending the afternoon looking through the amazing collection of brands Christine and her business partner have filled the store with (including Pacific Gypsea) we headed over to Bar Bocci for some delicious pizza and Arnold Palmers while watching a competitive game of bocci ball with a pretty epic view. Of course, a trip to Sausalito is also not complete without a stop at the Trident to have a drink at Janis Joplin’s booth. I am really looking forward to the official opening of Klozet as it is sure to provide endless options of new pieces whenever I am staying at my Dad’s in San Francisco and need a little retail therapy over the bridge.
This morning after finishing up some work, I threw on a simple gray jersey dress with my riding boots (which come in very handy when roaming the beautiful 65 acres of the ranch) and got in the car to drive to my Stepmom’s very quiet and peaceful birthday celebration at their ranch. As everyone is taking siestas and waiting for it to cool down before we head out to hike around the property I am quickly writing a post as I am sure to do a few photoshoots the next couple days. This is exactly what I needed after a crazy month, a peaceful break in a country setting. A few relaxing days and then back to the coast for what should be another crazy month (in a great way) of course. New clients, traveling… I am really looking forward to this summer.
