Shopping Buddies

Have you seen the new House Beautiful feature on Krista Ewart?  I have studied every little detail in my Ewart 101 class.  It’s amazing!


Funny Krista Ewart story.  Two years ago, I was camping with Ariel Gordon, of Ariel Gordon Jewelry (we have mutual friends – she’s the best!).  I told her that I’m an interior decorator and she said that her good friend was Krista Ewart, and asked if I had heard of her.  I nearly fell out of my chair.  Only one of my favorite designers.  I then went on to describe every detail of Krista’s sister’s Balboa home that was also featured in House Beautiful years ago.  The entire weekend I tried to slip Krista Ewart into every single conversation.  “What a beautiful hike – I wonder how Krista would interpret this into a home”  “Wow that fire is hot – you know what else is hot? The hot pink of Krista Ewart’s pair of tufted vintage chairs”  I was super fun to be around.  And incredibly normal.


Anywho, Ariel picked up on what I was subtly putting down and has said that she would set up a day of the three of us flea marketing in LA.


I have not set that up the shopping trip yet.  Are ya kidding me?!  I know. I know.  Josie was six months old the weekend we went camping and three months later I got pregnant again and well here we are.  One day.  I’ll get my buns down to LA and hopefully go shopping with Krista and Ariel.  One day.
