Naya Rivera’s LA Home

Whenever I pick up an issue of InStyle Magazine, I always first flip to the back for the Life Etc. section. Any of you guys do that as well? I get excited when they feature something related to interior design, as was the case in this month’s issue which gave us a look inside Naya Rivera’s beautiful hillside home designed by Angelo Surmelis. I love that it is so light, open and airy, and incorporates a harmonious mix of traditional and modern:

My Home Tour + Sources

As mentioned in a previous post, earlier this month, Style Me Pretty Living, one of my favorite lifestyle sites, featured a tour of my previous home. Since the feature went up, I’ve received inquires about the sources of some things, so I thought I’d post a complete list here for anyone else who may also be curious to know. Because the apartment was a rental that we planned to live in for only about 2 years or so and we had other priorities financially, when it came to decorating and furnishing it, we did so on a small budget, splurging only on a few select pieces.  BTW, this post from 2012 shows a few photos of what the place looked like when we first moved in!

WhoWhatWear’s New Offices

WhoWhatWear co-founders Hillary Kerr and Katherine Powers recently got office makeovers. First up was Hillary’s office, which Domaine Home helped turn into a grown-up sophisticated space with a hint of quirk and drama. Love the mix of  Arianna Belle pillows they chose to include!

In My Office: A New Year Refresh

Most of you probably know and love See Jane Work- a favorite go-to place for stylish office supplies.  What you might not know, is that they recently added several new products to their collection for Office Depot.  As soon as I got a preview of the goodies, I knew I needed to add some of them to my workspace, and was excited when Office Depot offered to send over my picks, just in time for a little new year refresh.  Here’s a look:

list_pad+pencil_cup-Arianna_Belle_Blog
 list pad, white pencil cup, colored pens, gold washi tape

white pencil cup that coordinates with my desk, to hold pens and highlighters, and a pretty lilac edged sticky pad for writing checklists, shopping lists, and to-do lists.

turquoise binders, white tissue box cover

Matching turquoise binders for keeping various business papers neat and orderly. They fit nicely lined up in the cubes of my Expedit unit.

Clear white dot project envelopes to easily carry fabric samples, etc. with me to meetings with my team.

A white stapler to replace my old one that wasn’t working properly anymore. I paired it with the matching white tape dispenser to make a stylish little duo. The tan cup I already had, but is also from the line. Love that it’s sturdy enough to hold my heavy gold tailor scissors.

Small updates that are helping create the setting for an organized and productive start to 2014. Are you freshening up your workspace for the new year?

This post is brought to you by Office Depot.  All content and opinions are my own. Thank you for supporting Arianna Belle Blog sponsors that allow me to create new content like this!

A New Week

working-in-style-arianna-belle-blogGood morning! Hope you had a wonderful weekend and are having a great start to the new week.  As usual, lots of things to tackle on the to-do list.  A priority item for me this week is migrating my website over to a different (better!) hosting company. Hopefully the move will go smoothly however some downtime will be inevitable, so if you see that the blog or shop is down later this week, that’s the reason.  I’ll try to post a heads up and progress updates on Facebook and Twitter. Excited to make the move as it’s the first step towards making the planned improvements to the site a reality.  Also working hard behind the scenes to make, photograph, and do all the data entry work to add lots of new pillows to the shop.  Follow me on Instagram for peeks!

Erika’s Fabulous Home Tour

Have you flipped through the latest issue of Adore Magazine yet? I was so honored to be featured alongside friends Irene and Erika in the Blog Loving section and also excited to see the spread featuring Erika’s gorgeous home.  It perfectly reflects her style and was beautifully captured by talented photographer Sabra Lattos.  Below are a few of my favorite shots:

Sugar Paper is a high quality paper goods company started by Chelsea Shukov and Jamie Grobecker 10 years ago.  Late last year they outgrew their original small space and moved their studio to a large warehouse in West LA. These photos give us a peek inside:

Stylish Workspace: Tara Guerard Soiree

It’s no surprise that a stylish event planning company like Tara Guerard Soiree, who regularly puts together magazine worthy weddings, has equally magazine worthy offices. Check out the photos below of their clean, tailored and bright workspace:

TaraG-stylish-workspace1

Sets of matching boxes and binders on custom floor to ceiling shelving provide plenty of storage and help maintain a clean uncluttered look.

An bulletin board above Tara’s desk serves as a catchall for photos that inspire ideas.

Large windows flood the conference space with natural sunlight

The tall spacious white table in the central workspace provides a perfect morning meeting spot for the team.

Definitely saving this as inspiration for when my I (hopefully!) have a larger company office space!
