Parents’ House: Guest Bathroom

For the past few months, I had been working on two pretty big home projects: my own condo and my parents’ new house. While my own condo has been mostly interior design, my parents’ house was a full gut job that needed a complete renovation.

With 3 bedrooms and 3 full baths, this house was built in the 1960s and had all the original appliances and fixtures as well as some of the most hideous wallpaper you’ve probably ever seen. However, this ranch-style home boasted an incredible view of the San Francisco Bay Area with a huge heated pool and jacuzzi to boot, just to sweeten the pot.

We’re still not completely done with the whole house, but there have been major changes already. Let’s begin with the guest bathroom. A lot of my inspiration came from the European bathrooms I had seen when I was living in London and traveling all over the continent. I loved how the European design aesthetic, especially in places like Paris and Barcelona, focused very heavily on textiles. It became a lot of my main inspiration for this bathroom.

This yoga junkie just took on the CorePower Challenge

Yoga has been part of my life for quite a long time now. I’ve joined many different studios, and I’ve been part of many different communities. However, none quite like the community I’ve joined at CorePower Yoga.

For those that don’t know, CorePower Yoga is a yoga studio with many different locations throughout the United States. All classes are heated with different amounts of humidity piped into the rooms. The classes vary in difficulty with one of the classes, Yoga Sculpt, incorporating free weights mixed with yoga positions into the class for a much more challenging workout. Like, kick-your-ass-every-single-time-challenging. Kinda like yoga bootcamp. No joke. Continue reading “This yoga junkie just took on the CorePower Challenge”

Preview: My Mini Living Room Sanctuary

As I mentioned before, I’ve created this blog to really serve as my own creative outlet. But I also wanted to create this blog to showcase some of the things that I’ve been working on to maybe provide some inspiration for your own home or personal style.

That being said — a full blog post will come shortly where I’ll talk about my design process and how my comfy little living room came to be. But I wanted to give a tiny preview of the mini sanctuary on the coffee table of my space.

Welcome to this wonderful little world of mine

The first post is always the hardest to start because, I guess it’s like, what do you say?

If you know who I am, then this blog shouldn’t be a surprise to you. I finally started this project I’ve been talking about for years. Hi friends!

If you don’t know who I am, then feel free to visit my About page to get an idea. I’m slightly atypical, but we’re the best types of people, right?

Curious about the featured image? It was me at Coachella 2017. Probably one of the best days of my life because I got to see Kendrick Lamar live for the first time ever. Also, pretty much my overall style in a nutshell — a little flirty, a little boyish and lots of black with pops of color,

I hope you find something you enjoy here. While I’ll definitely post more outfit ideas and some fashion inspiration, I’m actually excited to share some interior design and home projects that I’ve been working on for the past few months.

In the meantime, feel free to follow me on Instagram (@jennaq).

Looking forward to this new and exciting venture!
