Inside Minnie Mortimer’s Los Angeles Home

Revisiting Minnie Mortimer’s Los Angeles home because it’s freezing cold in the Northeast and Southern California is looking pretty tempting right now.

You can take a girl out the east coast, but you can’t take the East Coast out of a girl. Fashion designer Minnie Mortimer might be a New York expat living in Los Angeles, but her California coastal home looks straight out of the Hamptons—except she can enjoy the glorious weather year round, which makes her a winner at life.

“Summer has always been my favorite time of year,” Mortimer says. “Being in the ocean is my all-time favorite, and the west coast has amazing sunsets. It’s a very pretty view from our sunroom.” She’s got it figured out.

NYFW Trends: From Runway to Room

NYFW Trends to take from Runway to Room • @SavvyHome

NYFW is over and the trend reports are in. Here’s my runway-to-room trend report for Fall/Winter 2015.

NYFW Trends to take from Runway to Room • @SavvyHome

Retro SuperTexture

Checks, plaid, gingham and pinstripes were given the 70s treatment with dusty colors and chunky textures. 2015 marks the return of suede, shearling and mohair. Look out for J.Crew, See by Chloé and Mulberry.

Animal Tendencies

One thing’s for sure: fur will be EVERYWHERE come Fall, and it will most likely be mixed with leather and suede, in neutral muted tones for that off-duty model look. This will not be PETA’s year. Michael Kors, RodarteCoach and Kate Spade are only a few adopting the trend.

Royal Tenenbaum

It’s the return of the 70s with a retro sporty twist: this trend marks the return of all shades of orange, denim, fringe and bell-bottom jeans—updated to today’s taste of course. Tommy HilfigerLacoste, Trina Turk, Zimmerman and Peter Pilotto are leading the pack.

Modern Bohemian

Feathers, florals, chintz—bright oversized prints are all the rage this year. Light flowy shapes and sheer transparency give the heavy prints an ethereal bohemian elegance. Look out for Mara Hoffman, Tory BurchDiane Von Furstenberg, and Lela Rose.

Minimal Military

Camo is back, but it’s softened with complementary surf tones. The military silhouettes are also making a comeback—jumpsuits and structured coats edited for a minimal look. Banana Republic is adopting the trend along with Jason Wu and Marissa Webb.

The Weekender: Sunday Suppers

The Weekender: Sunday Suppers • via @SavvyHome

This week felt like I was swimming against the current (or more literally walking against blizzard winds—it’s soooo freaking cold here you guys)! Just one of those weeks where there was not enough hours in a day, you know? So I decided to hire an intern! Find out more if you’re interested and shoot me an email. I’d love to hear from you.

In other news, I pretty much fell off my chair to see that I got nominated for Better Home & Gardens’ Blogger Awards as one of their Top 10 Decorating Blogs! I would love if you took a few seconds to go vote for me! Love you, mean it!

I’ll be spending the weekend catching up on work and gearing up for a fun project happening early next week (I’ll tell you more soon, I promise)! Luckily I have a few dinner plans to keep me sane, and a family Oscar watching party Sunday night. I can’t think of anything better. Have a good one!



J.Crew is offering 20% off on a bunch of items with the code SHOPPINGTIME, including this indigo sweater, this mini skirt, this adorable bikini & these fabulous pumps. Their collection is so good these days.

MAJOR feet envy: the Stubbs & Wootton X Happy Menocal collection is available until March 2nd only! I’d kill for these Sport Crest Slippers.

Stock up on quirky art! Furbish Studio is offering 15% off all art, this weekend only with the code ART15!



I want all of the things: 4 things luxury homes of the future will have.

I’m loving Biscuit Home’s new Bloomsbury Green collection!

15 organizing tricks for inside your most clutter-prone spots.

I loved learning more about the girl behind Sunday Suppers.
