I've been redecorating parts of my house, which is taking a lot longer than I thought!  I'm now on to the guest bedroom.  It's a somewhat small room, only large enough for a full size bed and a few pieces of furniture.  I've been scouring the internet for bedroom decor that is clutter free and will make this small space feel larger.  One of the obstacles with this space is that it has one large window on the far wall. The way that I have it set up right now is with the bed directly under the window. Here are the few inspirations photos that I've found.

This is cute, if only I had an A frame!

This is my other favorite. Super simple yet with chic stylish accent pieces.

I love the look of simple effortless style. I'm a fan of subdued monochromatic earthy color schemes with touches of sparkle and color for interest. 



Fall has finally hit So Cal and I couldn't be more excited! I've found five beautiful Etsy finds that are perfect for fall. I love shopping on Etsy (visit my shop) and buying from the handmade artisans. To me, things hold much more value when the person that designed it also made it with their own hands!  

1. The Kallisto Shoulder Bag - comes all the way from Athens!

2. Sitka Spruce Earrings - Very cute!

Etsy shop: natureofart

3. White Gloves - So pretty, perfect into winter!

Last month Calypte Collection had the opportunity to partner with XCVI Fashion in their Thousand Oaks pop-up.  XCVI is a beautiful clothing line with a Boho Chic esthetic. Several of the Bohemian Chic pieces of the CC jewelry line where available along with several other talented local artisans.

 The pop-up was such a success that CC is heading up north with XCVI to Santa Barbara at the new pop-up location! I'm so excited to have the jewelry line in SB, a beautiful artsy beach town, where the sun shines 300 days a year!

Go check out the XCVI shop which is now open through December 30th!


I mentioned in my post here that my wonderful friend and her husband are renewing there wedding vows in November.  I'm going to be designing and creating the bride's necklace and she wants it filled with pearls.   Her dress is all lace and will look even more beautiful and elegant paired with a pearl necklace.  I've found 10 stunning pearl necklaces from talented Etsy artisans to help us design the perfect piece for her. Take a look at these beautiful Swarovski pearl wedding necklaces in all these shops!

I love this photo a day challenge! I'm two days behind but I'm going to start this tomorrow and just make up for the two days I've missed.  I'll be posting my pics daily on for CalypteCollection.

Anyone else want to do this with me?! Tag me on Instagram when you do : )



Even though it's technically Fall, here in Southern Cali it is still soooo hot. I've been itching for the weather to cool so I can wear warm cozy sweaters, boots, and jewel tones. While I wait, I've been collecting outfit ideas that are cool enough for summer but can easily be transformed for warmer weather. Here are a few of my favorites outfits and accesories for the season. Enjoy!
