In the Spotlight: Minnie Mortimer Home Tour

My Darlings!!! Happy Tuesday!!!  I TOTALLY missed you guys yesterday.  How was your weekend and what did you do??  Since I had ALL of last week off and wasn't very active with my blogging, I wanted to catch you up on some cool tidbits.

I had an AMAZING fun-filled weekend with LOTS of girl time!  I experienced my first SUPER COOL blogging moment. While out on the town with my girlfriends, I met a super sweet gal and the first words that came out of her mouth were "Oh my gosh! You're La-La Linh! I read your blog everyday! It is such an honor to meet you!" At that very moment, I felt pretty darn cool but so humbled and honored. That made my night! :)

I also had a chance to meet with my new team at BHLDN who are all SO incredibly beautiful, inspiring, and such talented women.  We are SO excited and pumped and I can't even begin to describe the POSITIVE energy that oozes from this team.  It is absolutely wonderful! If you haven't checked out our site, please do! Pure loveliness...

Since I wasn't able to post yesterday, I am doing my weekly home decor post today! I am putting Minnie Mortimer in the spotlight today.  Minnie is a fashion designer from NY but lives in a trendy yet homey Malibu house I adore.  What I love most about the home is how much I can relate to it.  It's not huge or over-the-top; it's just right. Plus, I'm HUGE on libraries right now and this is one of the focal points of the house. 

She loves to collect art which is all over her house. I also love the variation in the pillows. 
Did you notice the ikat?

This room serves as a library AND dining room. 
LOVE the dark walls and color pop on the chair cushions. 
Did you notice the chandelier?

The fabulous and homey sunroom. 

Another view of the sunroom. I could lounge around here all day!

Her daughter's room - I want that teepee!
To see the rest of her home, you can go HERE.

I like her eclectic style. I actually dislike when rooms look too put-together. And how cool is that teepee? I would've loved that as a kid.

I'm asking myself why I don't have a sunroom or a teepee in my house. Clearly I am missing out!
