Samuel Family Fixer Lighting

We have officially moved back into #samuelfamilyfixer! The bulk of construction is done and while we have quite a way to go before it is fully complete at least we are in and I can’t tell you how relieved that is. Going into a renovation you always know it is going to be disruptive and […]

Mandy Moore Living Room Tour

The living room and dining room in our Moore Residence project was thankfully relatively spared of from from the 90’s renovation. The original brickwork and copper fireplace remained in tact. The copper hood needed to be refinished and the brick planter needed restoration, but the space still had all the wonderful features from the original […]

Spotlight on Clad Home

I received loads of questions about our sofa in the A-frame since it was a customized version of Clad Home’s Melrose sofa and there are so many choices for modifications. It is my favorite sofa I’ve had, to date, 10 feet of modern beauty and I’m sharing all the details today. I’ve found that some […]

Living Room Makeover!

The living room in our house never really felt 100% finished. (I also realized I never shared a reveal of the space aside from featuring it in holiday decor posts or from when we babyproofed it!) We had a credenza that was a bit too small for the space, and the wall behind the sofa […]

How to Style and Care For a White Sofa with Electrolux

Many of you, including myself, thought I might be crazy getting a white sofa with two dogs and a toddler boy in the house. However I couldn’t get over my want for a sofa in the colorless hue. I could probably try and blame Pinterest and every gorgeous living room I’ve ever seen with a white sofa, […]

babyproofing casa samuel

Well it’s official, Archer is walking and the baby proofing game has begun! I think I’ve mentioned before that I haven’t spent a lot of time around babies so I wasn’t sure what needed babyproofing and what didn’t. Of course most is common sense and I’ve seen the drawer catches and door knob covers but we decided […]

Boho Glam Lounge Area

I’ve been doing some more e-design work as of late, which can mean a lot of online furniture shopping, which also happens to be my favorite kind of shopping. This room (aside from the print which is one of mine) can all be purchased online with most of the pieces even available at large retailers. I recently presented this […]

how to build an artful gallery wall from family moments // sarah sherman samuel

not your grandma’s gallery wall

Last holiday season, I was very pregnant and very late to the decorating game (I shared our Christmas decor on December 30th, whoops). We were also just coming off all the major renovations, so empty walls were pretty much a thing. This year, I am trying to put all the finishing touches I have left hanging, BEFORE […]

Christmas in LA

Here’s a peek into our house as decorated for Christmas. Better late than never right?, and who knows I may never take down that little white tree… … and certainly not this DIY wall hanging. 🙂 I wanted the holiday decorations to blend with the decor but still add all that extra sparkle that makes […]

an ode to the ottoman

One can never have enough stools, poufs or ottomans in his or her life. Used as a footstool, a resting place for your bum, or as a side table, these little workhorses are as beautiful as they are versatile. Target sent me the stool I picked out from their new Room Essentials line last week […]
