I’m very excited to introduce you to today’s guest blogger. I first discovered Jennifer’s incredible crafty talent when a good friend of mine suggested I check out her sister-in-law’s blog, Seakettle. I was enthralled. Jennifer has a knack for repurposing, designing, baking and of course everything crafting – and she’s a fantastic photographer to boot.
Just for fun, here’s a sneak peek at her home this Christmas – it’s full of great handmade ideas:
Jennifer is a graphic designer living in Los Angeles — making, baking and creating!
Those are handmade chocolate leaves. Mmmm. And Jennifer makes molding them look so easy on her blog. More peeks at her projects and home after the jump. Plus her answers to Pepper’s four usual interview questions regarding inspiration, trends and top tips! Read more »

Hi everyone, I usually have a new blogger to introduce during my Friday Guest Blog Interviews but today I’m excited to share an interview with a designer that has been garnering a lot of great press these days. Since I’m a home owner who dabbles (plays?) in design and am definitely not a professional, I thought her answers to the usual four questions were especially interesting!
Here’s Jaime’s official bio: “Mixing haute casual with modern elegance, Jamie Herzlinger specializes in bringing luxury and comfort to each room she designs. By blending diverse elements and taking her inspiration from fashion and art, Herzlinger uses unexpected design elements to create livable spaces. With offices in New York and Scottsdale, Herzlinger founded Jamie Herzlinger Interiors in 1991. With 20 years of design experience and as a licensed contractor, Herzlinger has designed a wide variety of spaces from demolition to completion.
This year, Herzlinger participated in Kips Bay Show House in New York and worked with NBC’s Open House. Jamie Herzlinger Interiors was also named Top Twenty Interior Design Firm in the country by Traditional Home Magazine and will launch JAMIE, a new design concept that will bring Jamie’s design to clients nationwide.
Herzlinger’s interior design style is classically modern with attention to details, luxury and comfort. Sophistication and subtly also mark Herzlinger’s style along with her love of history, philosophy, music and art imbued in every project.”

Today’s guest blog interview is special to me because this is a house tour that I’ve long adored. While Katie Bower and her family recently moved out of their old digs, it’s their previous home that I first fell in love with and their new home that I love to blog crash on a regular basis these days. Need a photo tour after all of that hype? Check it out right here, or wait for sneak peeks in the rest of this interview.
Katie, her ‘boyfriend’ (an affectionate name she has for her husband, Jeremy), and their son Will live in the South, and being a California girl we think anything Southern is pretty darn sweet. Bower Power Blog is a photo journal of Katie’s family, her design loves and her work as a professional photographer. She blogs about life, and it’s pretty fun to follow along.
So here with me today is Katie to share some of her inspiration, three favorite tips (definitely agree with these!) and why her decorating style is a bit more timeless than it is trendy (but do check out that photo tour of her home, because it’s right on the money when it comes to what looks just right these days). More after the jump. Read more »
