happy neutrals with a mix of cozy.
I’m so excited to share my partnership with Jenni Kayne! Being a Northern California girl, this brand resonates so much with me. I built our home with a California Casual mindset in mind and that is exactly what Jenni Kayne Home is.
It’s muted neutrals, soft and luxurious textures, scents of coastal breeze and eucalyptus. Jenni Kayne has a way of bringing calm and elevated into the same space.
As part of this partnership, I get to share products with you that I genuinely use and love and also provide a pretty amazing discount code to all my followers and friends – use JAMIE20 to get 20% off every purchase.
So without further adou here’s bits and pieces of Jenni Kayne around my home – I hope you come to love and shop the brand like I do.
Forbes dubbed Jenni Kayne, “The ultimate California lifestyle brand.” And I must admit, I kinda have to agree.

a serene and laid back approach to a master bath.
I was drawn to natural elements, warmth and clean design choices. I think all of that is represented in our overall master bath design and the simple addition of decor adds just enough hom
I designed these custom white oak floating vanities with our custom cabinet manufacturer. They have push to open drawers and a floating bottom shelf – which makes them really clean. We matched the vanities and built linen towers across from them for additional storage, trash and cleaning supplies. Also with push to open doors. Kids have yet to figure it out – so no worries of littles getting in 🙂
Our slab mirrors were custom made so they fit like a glove right on top of our counter splash and go right below our crown. It makes the space bright and I love how finished it looks.
I selected the same Caesarstone in our kitchen – Calacatta Nuvo Honed (quartz) for our master bath and did an 8″ splash to accommodate the wall mounted faucets. The subtle veining is warm and adds some extra sophistication that I think these vanities needed.
A few recessed lights and two (3) light iron sconces set into our vanity mirrors. These were from Shades of Light and crazy affordable.
I loved the idea of keeping the wood floor in here to make it warm – the wood floor is also softer to touch than a tile. It adds a lot to this space and I’m so glad I did it.
- Our wood floor flows into our master bath in front of our vanities and tub
- Tesoro Anthology tile in Ivory in various sizes in/around our shower
We did all Kohler in our house and Ferguson Showrooms worked with us on an amazing plumbing package. We have a mix of black and brass throughout our home, but I liked black in our master. The high contrast and grounding feeling of black works well with all the light warm tones.
- Kohler Purist Suite in matte black – vanities are wall mounted which make an elevated statement
- Kohler Freestanding Tub & Tub Filler
- Surround sound – a must! Ray LaMontagne is on repeat for me in the mornings.
- Heated floor tiles – you know for those 2 weeks out of the year.
- Indoor/outdoor shower set up
- Drywall cubbies at our vanities with oak floating shelves

peachy keen and natural tones, please! So many good home finds right now and my obsession for jumpsuits continue…
YOU GUYS! I painted Hudson’s and Palmer’s rooms with Clare Paint and it was easy as pie.
I would recommend having someone watch your kids for you, otherwise what is a 2ish hour project for each room could easily be a never ending project when kids are involved.
So if you remember, I shared our paint inspiration last week – see here
And I think both rooms turned out amazing. I had some wallpaper patterns in mind when I did these, but I didn’t want the wallpaper hassle so I reached out to Clare paint and they shipped me peel and stick swatch samples so Hudson could choose his favorite colors and then they shipped the paint and paint kit in one happy box and that’s literally ALL I NEEDED.
We used Headspace and Summer Friday paint colors in his room. Those were his two favorite colors and I think it goes well with his room vibe overall. What I did was this:
I cut a piece of cardboard off the Clare Paint box and used it as my guide. I used it to paint the lines and it was also the width in which I spaced the lines a part. I pretty much eyeballed everything but I like how organic it feels and the brushstrokes are a mixed variety. I started with lines of Headspace and then without the cardboard I just did a stroke of Summer Friday on top of it to create the layered color look. Very kid-like and totally appropriate for the space. And resembles the Studio McGee wallpaper I adore.
We used Seize the Gray to keep with his grey theme, but I wanted a chevron style pattern instead of straight lines like in Hudson’s room. I used the SAME cardboard piece from Hudson’s room and cut the corners to make it an arrow. And then I spaced them out the width of the cardboard piece and went for it. This pattern definitely took more time with the angles.
After half a wall in, something wasn’t sitting right with me. So I went through and filled in the spaces with the arrow pattern to decrease the gap. Turned out much better!
I was also inspired by a post Clare just shared of a framed photo hung with a paint accent behind it – so I did the same thing to Palmer’s Boca Grande print. Adds just enough play.
So what do you think? Up for a summer paint project? I’d highly recommend Clare for any and all paint needs. Quality paint. Superb branding. Amazing colors. Woman owned.
So many stunning vintage landscape paintings sitting pretty in popular homes, styled by popular bloggers and designers… but let’s be real they start in/around $300 and go all the way up to thousands! Like most right now, art at the price point isn’t realistic.

SO I took a que from Chris Loves Julia and did my own vintage print hack…
First – find the print you want and purchase the DIGITAL DOWNLOAD
SHOP digital prints from Westwoven and Olive & Oak – see below:
Digital prints range from $3 – $15 dollars. Most of the time you can choose the download (print) size of your choice or sometimes it’s only for one print size. Read the details.
Second upload the file to your local print shop or via nationalprintstore.com and get your prints made. Mine we both under $12 to print! It took a couple days to get, but that’s okay with me.
Lastly find your frame – I scored a couple off Etsy but you can also find some off Amazon and even Target. Weird sizes cost more, so take note – but for the look these are going for – an antique gold frame really makes it.
