Happy Weekend

For me, this weekend will include a break from work to enjoy a lazy morning, magazine catch-up reading, a trip to the Sunday farmer’s market, and some time spent giving our small condo balcony a mini makeover.

Hope you have a lovely one!

Parima Studio Rose Collection

ParimaStudio_Rose5

Roses #5

My talented sister Patty of Parima Studio, just launched her Rose Collection of fine art prints, inspired by a trip we took to a rose farm back in May. I have loved being able to witness the development of it over the past few months and am so proud of her. She’s so talented and passionate about what she does, which I think shows in the end product.

Arianna Belle in Instyle Magazine!

Incredibly honored that the shop is featured in the September issue of InStyle, currently on newsstands. Things like this make me pinch myself and take a moment to realize how far I’ve come. Just a few years ago, I was miserable, working a corporate job I didn’t love, and craving for something more. I could only have dreamt about something like this. Truly grateful for the now.

Arianna Belle featured in the Sept 2014 issue of Instyle Magazine“The jolt of a warm hue will enliven a seen-better-days sofa, and Arianna Belle has an amazing selection of covetable cushions that you can search by style, pattern, or color.”

-Tyler Dawson, Los Angeles Interior Designer
