A Day with Actress & Singer Daniella Monet

March 22, 2016

DaniellaMonetSWENYO-49We were thrilled when the team over at Swenyo  asked us to help style the television’s star Daniella Monet’s bedroom and office in her newly purchased LA home.  This was a marketing collaboration between Danielle and Swenyo, and they both knew they would want and need the touch of a professional designer to help assist with the over all look and vibe.

We were honored when they reach out to us.  It was a no brainer.  A day spent with a down to earth talent with incredible taste, a production team such as Swenyo, and the talented photographer Kim Marcelo is a day well spent to us!

We blended the furnishings that Swenyo provided along with a few other accessories we sourced to created a minimal, fresh and youthful bedroom + office for the actress.

Take a look!!

Color Trend : Emerald Green

March 17, 2016

2965b418b9dd0f5994ce321b3f768341

With St. Patrick’s Day around the corner, we are seeing green!  Green has really started to be a top contender for accessorizing with color around the home.  Whether it’s with plants, pillows, or pieces of furniture, the color green is always sure to be a beautiful and bold statement piece.  Jewel tones have been hot for the last few years and we are so stoked that this trend isn’t going anywhere.  It’s been fun to see how this color is starting to make its way into bathrooms and kitchens, and looks especially fab with metallic accents.

Here’s a bit of emerald green love + inspiration for you:

How do you incorporate this saturated color into your home?

Spaces We’re Loving : Maria Eugenia of Sea + Wander

March 13, 2016

HOUSETOUR-MARIA-KF (20 of 70)

We met Maria a few years back via a mutual friend, and both of us sisters have been close to her ever since.  This woman is someone to keep your eye on, folks!  She is the owner of the online shop for everything fabulous related to women and children, Sea + Wander. With a brick and mortar opening soon!  Please keep a look out for this local shop ladies, where we’re sure you will find us visiting on a regular basis.

She is a North County mama who is living the dream.  Originally from Argentina and after many years spent in NY she has now found herself in the coastal hometown of us Sisters, Carlsbad.

Maria’s taste is a cross of boho chic with modern flares.  She pays tribute to a few era’s (mid century and the rock roll days of the 70’s) and blends them so well in such a calming way. Maybe it’s the all white walls and sheep skins that create this calm vibe, but we would like to think it’s her warm heart and loving spirit that makes you want to crawl up on her day bed/sofa and listen to records all day.

Welcome to Maria’s home:

CURRENTLY : PINNING 003

March 8, 2016

currently3

Clearly our love of Blush hasn’t faded! It just feels right, paired with white or black you really can’t go wrong. We love this huge statement centerpiece using greenery from your backyard. Earthly textiles and buttery leather with a dark statement wall? Yes please, and a nice break from “all white errythang” too. This staircase + that brick wall = chic, rustic, and modern. These tiles are giving us major heart eyes. We’d take a whole shelf of these ceramic beauties, and bonus is that they’d look amazing on an open shelf in the kitchen! Last, this cactus would look fabulous in an entry way.

Happy pinning, friends!

LATEST CREATION : STREET LEVEL HANDBAG SHOWROOM

February 23, 2016

streetleveledit (10 of 20)

When we were approached to design and create a more inviting space for the Street Level Handbag showroom located in downtown Los Angeles, excited and thrilled would be an understatement.  The already existing walls and concrete floors were a blank canvas that we became very anxious to get our hands on.  The inspiration quickly started flowing in.  The owner/founder of Street Level was more than a delight to work with and her enthusiastic personality, giggly laugh, and contagious smile made this project beyond fun!

After meeting with her and her team, we at 4 Corners decided to find our inspiration by creating a fictional character.  This character would be their “ideal” customer.  She would be the type of woman who would wear their amazing selection of handbags as an accessory to her already fabulous life.  This is where and how our inspiration was created for this space.

We would love to introduce you to Claire! She is a recent college graduate and known as a free spirit. She is now living on her own for the first time in her NY apartment.  She is a lover and collector of vintage finds.  She loves to travel the world and often finds herself in Paris, taking photos, and continuing her education of life!  A true butterfly in our eyes.

If you look closely you will see hints of travel, education, Paris, butterflies, and vintage finds.  All these elements mixed in with the beautiful handbags made for a very unique display.  The clients also needed multiple meeting places for their buyers.  Therefore, we created three different types of spaces for them to meet.  One being a casual lounge area for meetings, an informal bar top, and a more formal conference table.  This will allow their buyers to feel at home and comfortable when buying for their new retail collections.  We brought in a muralist to create some imagery on the walls, such as the handbag menu behind the bar and the freehand butterfly on the black wall which makes for a great Instagram photo!

We also custom made a unique butterfly mobile that hangs center in the showroom to draw the eye up and remind us to live a more free spirited life, like Claire.  Because the space was a large industrial warehouse, we also wanted to warm things up and create a feeling of life inside the brick walls and concrete floors.  This was the inspiration behind the faux living walls and hanging plants.  Hanging the backyard string lights also gave it a whimsical feel and really brightening things up.

Overall the space feels well lived, well-educated, and well-traveled.  Everything the client asked for and both Street Level and 4 Corners could not be happier.  We were honored to create such a space and beyond thrilled they chose us to do so.

Please head on over to our Instagram, @sistersof4corners, to participate in our Giveaway with the fabulous Street Level.  You can win one of their beautiful handbags!  Now hurry up and enter!

We first found The Beach Lodge on Instagram and had to follow right away.

FEATURED ARTIST: JAI VASICEK OF AHOY TRADER

February 12, 2016

Jai-paints

I first met Jai a few years ago in Byron Bay, Australia for a mutual friend’s birthday bash. We spent a few days together celebrating our friend and over that time, I instantly fell for Jai’s amazing energy. Not only is he so sweet and refreshingly genuine, he’s so much fun to hang out with. The man knows how to have a good time and he’s a great conversationalist. I visited his shop, Ahoy Trader in Byron Bay, and wanted to buy everything. He’s an incredible artist and visionary and has fabulous style.

I am most attracted to his incredible tile installations and daydream about commissioning him to do a project for us one day. His carefree spirit really comes through in his art and I love the way he uses color and imagery to bring his pieces to life. I especially love the way he interprets the female spirit. He has such a beautiful vision of what a true goddess looks like.

Many Of Australia’s Most Stylish Home Decorators And Savvy Interior Designers Commissioning Him To Create One Of A Kind Artworks Making For A High Impact Focal Point In Any Room.

As Well As Selling Into Leading Stores Nationally And Online, Jai Has Created His Own Little World In His Popular Byron Bay Store Ahoy Trader, Where You Can Find A Bowerbird’s Collection Of His Work Alongside Homewares And Fashions From Other Local And Australian Designers Who Share A Similar Aesthetic.”

Favorite bits: the Malachi painting, the tile installation at Miss Margarita, his shop Ahoy Trader, his decorated crosses and his pillows.
