Jennifer Fisher's office decor

We published our January issue this week, and as you may have seen it stars the terribly chic jewelry designer Jennifer Fisher. It's always a pleasure, and the part of my job I enjoy the most, to be on set and welcomed into the personal space of creative pioneers – to see how they work, how their own style may be different from their brand, what knick-knacks they simply can't live without, and, of course, how they've decorated. Jennifer's decor style is quite different (read: hipper, chicer, cooler, etc...) than my own, but I was still incredibly inspired by it! I love when a space so closely reflects one's personal style, as we all know what a challenge it can be to attain the perfect workspace! Hoping her style inspires you too... Happy reading!

katie's place



I hope everyone has had a chance to read the August issue of Matchbook! Each issue is a proud accomplishment for our small team, but this one just a tad more so. Our very own Katie Armour featured her (old) San Francisco apartment, and it was simply stunning! Lavender walls brimming with artwork, ginger jars overflowing with purple hydrangea, pheasant feathers, red polka dot Porthault linens, gingham and leopard upholstry, a sky high collection of vintage art books and treasures... I could go on. The space was gorgeously captured by Cooper Carras, and every inch of it is quintessentially Katie. See the full story here...

PS. Apologies for the silence around here, but I'm sure you're all thrilled to know that we've made great headway on painting and wallpapering (yes, a daunting task!) our new apartment. So excited to begin decorating shortly... I'll be sharing some of my favorite finds from my hunt along the way.
