ᴀᴛ ʜᴏᴍᴇ ᴡɪᴛʜ ᴀɴ ᴀʀᴄʜɪᴛᴇᴄᴛ👻
The past few weeks I’ve been staying away from social media and the news. I’ve given my 100% to family, work and purging the home. 
I mentioned my home purge to the interior designer at our firm and she asked me if I was following the Kon Mari method. Only Because the way I was going about my home purge sounded familiar to hers.

Curious to know who this Kon Mari organization guru was, I bought her book and have been comparing it to my own method.

After a couple of pages I realized waoo who knew people are as nerdy as me when it came to home organization. Kon Mari and I are purging soul sisters. 
Regardless before I go back into my dark monk mode cave. I wanted to share the title incase you’re going through a home purge and want to know how the pros do it.
.
What’s your favorite purge tip? Tell me in the comments.

I’ve been reflecting on this quote for some time now...and then there’s Picasso’s quote that goes..👇🏼
“Without great solitude, no serious work is possible.”
......
For this and many more reasons I’m about to embark and go in Monk Mode.
......
Because like P man stated, it’s Monk Mode or hit the road monkey 🙈. Well ya’ know my modern interpretation of it anyway. .
Have you’ve heard of Monk Mode? Or follow the practices of Deep Work? I’d love to hear your experiences let me know in the comments below before this gal turns into a 🎃 at midnight.

This new family addition (Honda’s 100% Electric Clarity)  is making us rethink our energy consumption, and with the incentive to save money we serendipitously are also saving the planet. Win- Win.

We have now shifted our game plan to try and achieve a semi-off the grid home and lower our energy bill to pennies. As we go through the process I'll make sure and share all the fun ways in which we are making

we have now shifted our game plan to try and achieve a semi-off the grid home and lower our energy bill to pennies. as we go through the process i'll make sure and share all the fun ways in which we are making "la casa" one green, lean working machine.
.
.

first step:
with the purchase of the electric car, we were able to change our power plan, (the state of california offers this deal to electric car owners), this allows you to have a lower rate at nights and a higher rate during peak hours. this leads you to start taking note of the energy consuming dinosaurs you have around the house. so you either start running those only at night, or you make sure they are energy star approved (we bought smart plugs to help us determine how much power outtage things, such as the fridge were exerting.)
.
.
in general california's cal green code and building codes are pushing all new construction to be - by fault a green home. but it's up to us homeowners of older homes to retrofit our pads to meet new building standards and i personally love all the incentives the state is doing to get you there. now it's just a matter of will and implementation.
.
.
so there you have it our first little green nugget.
what have you added to your home that is saving you money and also saving the planet? feel free to share in the comments section below.

The reason there is a little ghost in the bio for this instagram. Is due to our inside joke that the Architect and original owner of this property only wanted another Architect or Designer to have it. And so he is our Pet Architect Ghost who whispers sweet architectural knowledge into my ears. So if you hear me say my Architect Ghost you’ll know that’s who I’m taking about. 
He finished his treehouse in 1962, and lived in it until his death. Now that’s a true love story don’t you think? .
.
Do you have a ghost in your property? Is he a Casper or Shining?

This was my stepping stone to 65 million dollar homes. My first permit set in SF. The gateway bathroom to selling my soul to the devil. But now all I really want is to help normal people have the luxury they deserve without paying millions for it. So bare with me as I try really hard to get us great design for pennys. ;) . (Hint - it will probably be at Target)

Bare with me with this blare witch style temporary video. But I wanted to open it up to you. What is your favorite guardrail system? Design and durability wise, what has made the most sense? Let me know in the comments below.

I’m going through a house purge at the moment yet this ceramic plant holder is challenging my will power.
⠀⠀
I’m going to leave it right here so when I do decide to start the home decor I know where to find it. Thank you @skinnyceramics for bringing to life this beautiful piece. .
