Vintage Remix!

This past weekend I finally had a chance to sit down and read through interior designer Kishani Perera’s new book, Vintage Remix which I am absolutely loving! Growing up rummaging through yard sales, flea markets and thrift shops in search of the perfect piece, Kishani developed a knack for re-imagining vintage finds as well as a killer signature style that is colorful, eclectic and just plain cool. It’s no wonder that she is the go-to decorator for A-list Hollywood celebrities like Kate Bosworth, Josh Duhamel, Molly Simms, Rosie Huntington-Whitely and Jason Statham. Filled with images from Kishani’s portfolio, Vintage remix …

I recently returned from a week long trip to Los Angeles and I’m already wishing I was back there! I LOVE LA!

Kishani Perera on Budget Decorating

When I asked her about this home I was surprised to hear that this was a project done for a client on a tight budget and that it was furnished using a number of items from mass market stores such as Crate & Barrel mixed in with flea market finds and vintage pieces …

Designers We Love: Kishani Perera

Kishani Perera is a talented LA based designer that I recently had the pleasure of meeting thanks to an introduction by a mutual friend. I had been a long time fan of hers ever since seeing the homes she designed for model/actress Molly Sims which have been some of her most buzzed about projects.

You’ve probably seen this photo of Molly’s Soho apartment which was featured in a 10 page spread in InStyle Home’s Fall/Winter ’07 issue. It’s been published in a few other publications as well and has also made the rounds on the blogosphere.

Last week in LA…

Sorry I’ve been MIA! Work and life have been crazy! I spent 5 days in LA last week for work so I thought I’d give you a little recap of all of the design related stories from my trip…good and bad. Let’s start with one of my favorite hotels, The Chamberlain West Hollywood.

Stayed a fabulous two nights at The Chamberlain. I go to LA quite often and stay here a majority of the time. It’s quiet and cozy, centrally located and I love the large rooms, the pool, the service, and the gorgeous lobby pictured above. But…during this…
