The Avocado Ranch Wallpaper

After a long and patient wait, the lovely local wallpaper maven Katherine Reginato was able to bring her team over to the house to hang the papers I selected for the bathrooms. Please have a look at my non-pro camera snaps. I am officially obsessed with the spark of joy I feel when I pop into these rooms now. Any objection that I have heard from folks about a commitment to wallpaper is something I no longer regard as sensible. This is just a joy above joys to welcome these patterns into my world and I look forward to seeing them age through the years. Aren’t we all glad that color and pattern ..read more

The Beach House: Sunroom Evolution
The Estate of Things
by Betsy
3M ago
Gah, look at how it frames that Eucalyptus! At the beach house, the road to windows was a long one. It was a tough call bc the original French panes gave this place all of the charm that made me first fall in love. I wanted to do the home justice. As it turns out, these floor-to door height fixed panes were a fantastic turn for the interior vibe, and I’m ever grateful for that. Here is a look at the sunroom on my first real estate tour. The blue exterior of the french mullions was overpowered by the white interior and provided a bit of a fuzzy feeling to the view through the windows. You can ..read more

The Avocado Ranch Living Room
The Estate of Things

6M ago
We bought the Avocado Ranch at the very bitter end of a tumultuous 2020. After a few years of living life in this space, the living room has fully assumed its personality. For now! Like so many others, I was bit by the Mario Bellini Camaleonda bug, though I like to think it was before I realized it was fated to “it-girl” sofa status. Don’t tell my husband, but I’m already dreaming up the next iteration of this room. It wouldn’t be me if I weren’t trying to angle for a new sofa, or a new identity. Of course, we’ll let the room stay as it is for a while if only to make brain space for the rest ..read more

The Kitchen Before We are undergoing a full gut renovation, receiving a new layout, new cabinetry, countertops and all appliances, new lighting and a new dining table. We even got a new door and new windows, so the before to after transformation shall be radical. Eventually. In the interim, I’ve been steadily collecting inspiration for the design.

Cali Chalet – Juje Room Before and After

If I were a professional blogger lady I’d call this a reveal and my photos would be perfectly styled and I’d probably link to the rad lady that created the lightroom presets I used to make my photos sing. But, I’m just trying to keep my head above water while I do all the things I wanna do, and this room isn’t even really done. So today I just want to share the progress…. what we’re looking like without it having to be perfect. (And also, I don’t use presets on my phone cause I’m just not there yet, so I still photoshop my images to make them web ready. Is this what it is like to be 40?) Inse ..read more

Just switch it maybe a little bit? We’ll call it leaving on a high note. In spite of the wild ride of 2020, we’ve had a great year in revenue. You stayed home and you wanted that home to feel homier than ever and we are so thrilled that SHOP TEOT could be a resource for your home during this crappy year. And for me personally… what a crappy year it has been.   So, it is time to take another direction.  Bigger? Better? Stronger & Leaner? Less Stressed!??? It will be really tough to summarize the events and thoughts that have led Sarah and I to this huge announcement for our ..read more

Staging Greenbriar: A Shoppable Home Tour
The Estate of Things

Recently Sarah had the pleasure of staging a home in nearby Woodlake. Greenbriar, a 90’s contemporary home, was to hit the market soon. We found it to be in need of, not a full renovation, but definitely a little TLC, a refresh!  Here is a look at where we started. Greenbriar, before Sarah got her hands on it. The dark and heavy built-ins are typical in residences from this era. With a fresh coat of Benjamin Moore Sheep’s Wool over the stained wood, some new light fixtures, and a few household goods too, Greenbriar got the care it needed and is ready to be snatched up by a ..read more

2021 Interior Design Trends

I want you to know that we love trend spotting. It’s one of the great joys of being an Interior Design Enthusiast. Style by Sarah of TEOT, photography by Rachel Garrison Sarah and I are both particularly good at it and frankly we were putting our bet on that when we took this whole blog endeavor to the next level and opened up our Retail Shop in Southern Pines, NC. In that experience, the interesting thing that we have found, is that having your finger on the pulse of what is next in interior design, doesn’t always mean you get to sell what you see coming down the pipeline. Quite the opposit ..read more

Earlier in the year Sarah and I got a chance to be together in real life, and shop the scene here in LA for a MART restock. While she was here we had a chat about lavender decor. She was feeling it and we picked up a number of pieces for SHOP TEOT from a lovely purple striped throw to a number of African baskets featuring the color. It’s my favorite color and represents the spiritual gypsy lovin side of me. Below is our little roundup of purples that we have been pinning! We’ll be looking to these for inspiration in our own spaces. How about you? photo by Jonas Ingerstedt | styling by&nbs ..read more

Custom Furniture with Buildlane

Have you ever considered having a custom piece of sofa created just for you? It can be a daunting proposition, even for well connected designers in makers markets like South Los Angeles or in the heart of American made furniture in North Carolina. Through SHOP TEOT, I have come to know this well. In fact I’ve been delighted to get a peek behind the scenes of the mysterious manufacturing furniture scene in both LA and in NC, where TEOT works with makers on its own custom furniture pieces. As it turns out, the mystery is not as great as it appears from the outside. The truth: it is well hidden ..read more
