Hello, Sweet Girl

Welcome to the family, Sydney Bristow Maigret. Yours was the first photo I fell in love with online, right after I decided it was time to stop crying about loss and start focusing on gain. I worried, briefly, that people

Goodbye, My Beloved Boy

Ten and a half years ago, on February 4th, you showed up at our doorstep, exhausted, confused, matted of hair and smelling like a skunk. You were strikingly beautiful then, and you remained strikingly beautiful until the moment we said

What To Expect When Working With an Interior Designer. At least this one.

Hey. I thought it might be handy to put together a document that explains in detail the process of working with me. Intrigued? Read on. Maybe we can team up and create spaces that will blow minds. Keep in mind

Bestest Beauty Products From Someone Who Doesn’t Consider Herself High Maintenance But Probably Is

Sometimes things live up to the hype. Like that time I met Jonathan Adler through a friend and he was super nice and funny and took my hand and told me I was “hilarious”. Whenever I doubt my self worth

Sleep Together. More Soundly.

When we go on vacation, we like to bring something back from our trip that reminds us of what an amazing time we had. Usually, it’s in the form of a 5-7 pound weight gain, but sometimes, it’s much much

S’well Indeed.

Everywhere I go, people ask me about my groovy water bottle.  If I were in a magazine, in a feature entitled “Things Julie Maigret Can’t Live Without”, one of my items would be this beauty. Yes, that list, like every

That Time I Discovered I Am No Defender Of Women.

Last week, I went to Largo at the Coronet to see “Sarah Silverman & Friends”.  Which really should have been called “Sarah Silverman & The Same Friends As The Last Time You Went A Few Months Ago, With Mostly The Same Jokes.” But

Male model for hire. Hourly is negotiable, form of payment preferred: people food of any kind.
Restaurant design done right... right??? 💯 & 👌 & 😍
I fear that Pico is the only being who truly ‘gets’ my obsession with the Madagascar Elephant Tree.
Hey, Malibu, we should visit more often.
Totally diggin’ (see what I did there?) our new driveway cactus display. Supplies from my beloved @pottedstore & the dtla flower mart. Props to @robmaigret for subjecting himself to many cactus needles. 😬
Ojai-ing with these supastarz.
Handsome Jeff Of Ojai 😻
This is Ojai. #ojai #ojailove #ojaicalifornia #ojaivibes
I might be Game-Of-Thrones-Level obsessed with The Boys. 🔥⭐️👌💯
My airplant is (probably) bigger than your airplant.
I have always been a huge fan of Twiggy. She’s quintessentially mod AF. I’m sure she’d be honored to discover she featured prominently in our guest bathroom. 😬 #twiggy
Syd insisted on being the first to get her hair all over our newest reading nook. I may have taken this vintage chair off our street & had @arboledaandco reupholster it in a soft & gorgeous @sunbrella chenille outdoor fabric. I also may have found this uniquely fab (half) side table at @hotelsurplus outlet - and it may have been originally from the Jeremy Hotel in Weho. The pouf might also be my first @ikea purchase in about 10 years, and only because it came preassembled. Come visit & bring a book! And perhaps a lint roller.
Took a nap outside and woke up to Cloud Man here. Not creepy at all. 😳😳😳
May I be the first to wish you Happy Holidays? 🙄
Sydney will NOT be outdone by her big brother. Plus, she has better legs.
A lot of (rude) people ask if Pico has had a bunch of cosmetic surgery to be this unbelievably handsome. Nope. He’s just #blessed.
Date night at the outstanding Otium. Besides food that is pretty much perfection, they currently have drinks such as The Marvelous Mrs Basil (my fave) and The Little Sebastian - named after, of course, Little Sebastian from Parks & Rec. 👌& 😂 & 💯 #themarvelousmrsmaisel #marvelousmrsmaisel #lilsebastian #treatyoself #parksandrec #LAfoodporn #bestofLA
The shopping in Copenhagen is epic. And everyone wears sneakers all the time & with everything. They’re my spirit animals. 😍
