Pinching myself and reminiscing about my NYC trip with Delta Faucet today on the Notorious B-L-O-G! So much fun to hang with old and new friends in a city that I dream about daily. What’s more inspiring than New York in the fall season during #NationalDesignWeek - you tell me!! #ad #DeltaDesign http://amberinteriordesign.com/my-october-trip-to-nyc-with-delta/
I love this ‘lil corner in my kitchen, not only is it pretty to look at, but that sleek @Sonos One speaker is my new obsession. If you haven’t checked out my stories interacting with it, you’re definitely missing out - G and I are in full on dj mode over here! #sp // 📷: @nickisebastian

Is anyone else tripping out that Turkey Day is right around the corner??? I mean... I was just celebrating New Years, how is it already almost a New Year? Anyways, I am no chef and don’t eat meat... but I would cook a mean tofurkey in this kitchen! It’s just so Thanksgiving appropriate, am I right??!! // design via @katiehackworth //
If you have followed me for a while, you will see, Its quite obvious how obsessed I am with my family. I love nothing more than relaxing at home with my family and listening to some tunes!! Want know what else I am obsessed with…. Sonos and the new feature that allows you to connect your Alexa device. ‘Cause it’s AWESOME and it’s doubtful I can live without it at this point. Also, Gwynnie literally thinks she has a personal assistant named Alexa - it’s pretty entertaining!! #sp // 📷: @nickisebastian

Back to work today... and I am pretty sure I didn’t stop talking for 6 hours straight.... so is the blessing of being the boss. I have a feeling this peaceful office would really help make those 6 hours a loooooootttt easier 😊Am i right??? // 📷 @tessaneustadt // #clienthollaatlajolla // ALSO, my MOM made that wall hanging, and we sell them custom @shoppe_by_ai .. isn’t that just the prettiest!!!
Going back to work seems like the best distraction, as well as the best way to find peace being immersed back into my usual routine. My Dad is doing so much better, and I know all the love and support my family has revived has helped immensely. Thank you all again for extending your warm wishes for his recovery, and for sending such good vibes our way. Life is good guys, life is good. // the blog post of #clienthollaatlajolla is still up if you missed it ☝🏻☝🏻// 📷 @tessaneustadt //
Wake up everyday and realize life is a gift. In a second it can all change, and in a flash you are reminded how precious life is. My Dad was in a head on collision on Thursday morning. He is here and everyone is Ok, but he has a long recovery road ahead. I am so grateful for the nurses and doctors, and surgeons, and helicopter pilots, and paramedics, and police officers, and whoever was watching over him, to make sure we got to keep our amazing Dad around for many more years to come. I struggled with wether or not to share this, but I feel like asking for good thoughts and providing a little reminder (like I was reminded) that life is precious, and we are all in this together... can't hurt. Xoxo
You keep liking and I'll keep posting.. thank you veeeerrrryyyy much 😂🤣 // 📷 @tessaneustadt // go check the full blog post // #clienthollaatlajolla
One of the hardest and most annoying parts of my job is designing a space at the beginning of a project, waiting for 2 years until you finally get to see it done, and still liking it just as much when the protective paper comes off and the dust gets vacuumed. You'll be pleased to know, I still 100% love this house 😊😂 Head to the BLOG to see the full reveal!! // link in profile // 📷 @tessaneustadt // #clienthollaatlajolla
Wanna see what the INSIDE of this house looks like??? Head to the Blog for the full ins and outs // link in profile // 📷 @tessaneustadt // #clienthollaatlajolla
We don't shoot this house until end of November... but when you get the custom light fixture of your dreams up in the dining room... you spoil the surprise!! #sorrynotsorry #clientblackhousesarethebesthouses // another project we have been working on for the past 2 years that's finally done! When we came on to design this house, this dining room, was proposed to be the kitchen... now it's not! I can't WAIT to show you all // 🔨 @pottermallis
We have been working on this house for 2 years. It's a little known fact, that the majority of our clients are ground up builds. So if it seems like sometimes we are in a "lull" of new content, is because we have 237 Thousand ( haha) builds going on, Unless you wanna see framing and drywall, and electrical panels.... we stretch content or wait patiently till a project is picture perfect. #clienthollaatlajolla is just such a project. We knocked this house down, and built a brand new shiny one on to replace it! Check out these bunks we designed for the clients two little dudes. I would TOTALLY sleep in a bunk, just sayin.! // 📷 @tessaneustadt // blog post coming soon!!
Literally BLOWING it, but I just landed in NY and the pics of #clienthollaatlajolla are all in! Blog post coming Monday, so for now... spoiler alert // 📷 @tessaneustadt //
Oh I love a nook, especially one that looks like this! Trying to prep a blog post, but we are flying to NY today... so stay tuned and we will make it happen soon. Fun Fact, We built this puppy from the ground up over the past 2 years, so I am thrilled to be finished and on to the pretty pictures phase. #clienthollaatlajolla // 📷 @tessaneustadt //
So IG has been suckin and not showing photos on my profile page.. what's up with that?? Anyone else, or is it a conspiracy against me only??? Anyways the master bathroom from yesterday got so much love, and I can't wait to show you more pics from the whole house. Here is a peak of the kitchen. It's quite cute ya?? #clienthollaatlajolla // 📷 @tessaneustadt //
I loved this house, and we never got to shoot it... which is depressing. but actually way more depressing for you guys cause I actually got to design it and install it, so I have some mental pictures to hang on to.. PLUS these crappy iPhone pics work, for now. #crappyiphonepicsaremyjam #clienttupacmeetsbiggietodecoratethesediggies .
I go back and forth, designing and redesigning, up and down... and I think I have finally decided. Black house+corrugated roof+natural stacked stone = PERFECTION// via Pinterest please tag the designer or source if you know it // #clientmemyselfandicantmakeupmymindpartdeux
Last nights shenanigans were not only pretty to look at.... but it was fun AF too!!!! Got to hang with a bunch of cool chics (check my stories) and I was proud to debut my curator series watch for @fossil ... also, if you have been following along with me for the last few years, you may remember when I worked on @lombardihouse .. it was cool to be back there last night, 3 + years later!! #fossilfirsts
I'll be posting more details of when and where to get it on the blog soon!
Pretty soon I'll have some "afters" to show you on the Blog.. but for now, here's a pre-show peak at #clienthollaatlajolla // 📷 @tessaneustadt // also, you go and have yourselves a happy hump day friends, we need it... 🎶ohhhh we're half way there...
Ohhh whoooaaaaa🎶 (insert the rest of the song below and then hate me all day for getting the song stuck in your head) 👍🏻
It doesn't feel right to go back to business as usual, but my heart being so heavy and my struggle with raising a child in this scary world we live in, forces me to focus on the beautiful things. It's my way of coping.
I am suffering, we ALL our, it's unthinkable that such evil exists... but until I find a better way to cope, I will turn to beauty, and do my part to fight hard for what I believe in. See my stories for more info about what my family is doing to try (small May it be) to make a difference in the world we raise Gwynnie in. // pics from #clienthollaatlajolla 📷 @tessaneustadt //
I missed an install so I could spend some QT with my main man on our anniversary.... but I have a feeling this completed project is gonna be a good one. I'll have to wait for the photos just like everyone, so in the meantime, let's look at a #crappyiphonepicsaremyjam NOT taken by me for once. Good thing my team rule at everything else, cause they sure suck at taking photos... almost as much as I do. 😂🤣 #clienthollaatlajolla
If you need me... I'll be here, sunning myself at one of my top 10 fave places to get away to. This occasion happens to be a special one celebrating 11 years (today) of wedded bliss to my ride or die @mikerlewis ... watch my stories for some sappy stuff. Hey and thanks for being such a vortex of amazing energy @ojaivalleyinn ... you are a real class act. #neverleaving
@shoppe_by_ai is loaded with new stock! Tons of these ottomans, tons of new rugs, tons of pillows.... basically everything you see here we have some version of over @shoppe_by_ai . I hereby dub today "Treat Yo Self" Friday... so go on, TREAT YO SELF // link in profile // 📷 @tessaneustadt #clientofthemidcentury
Art is a tricky one for me when designing houses. Its either too expensive, or too personal, or too specific. So, when you get a chance to work with an amazing company, that offers all different art style options, competitive price points, feature emerging artists, and show up ready to hang, you jump for joy. I partnered with Saatchi Art to curate my own limited collection of pieces. Each print on Limited is carefully curated and editioned, offering some super cool artwork at wallet-friendly budgets. Bonus: they’re ready-to-hang! Go check out my hand picked 10x10 collection on #Limited by Saatchi Art. This is #MyLimitedStyle, what’s yours? #sp
Ya know what ?? I could eat here. But I would be distracted for sure, cause DUH, it's pretty. // design via @sarahdavisondesign in Australia ( but of course ) //
Am I this person.... no, but I really really want to be. Life goals in 2018, who's with me?? 👍🏻💁🏼 // via @thestylephiles //
The new "Penny" canopy bed from @shoppe_by_ai , had its "fall feeling" and so have I!!! It's the BEST time of the year folks, #amiright // you can email @shoppe_by_ai for the deets on this bad boy, or we can all just longingly gaze at this pic for hours.... wishing we were snuggled up here all day. 🍂
Even though going to Hawaii was for work.... somehow it didn't quite feel the same as most work weeks. Back to the grind this week, and one of the focuses, get this awesome house wrapped the F up so we can stop taking #crappyiphonepicsaremyjam and get our client moved the F in. #clientdraculaandjuliachildwalkintoabar #progressnotperfection
It's officially fall, which means here in Cali we finally have the perfect weather to chill by an outdoor fireplace, get a chunky sweater on, talk about pumpkin spiced stuff, and wait for Halloween. // tell me the source so I can tag the designer plllleeease// 💕
Leaving paradise today and reflecting on how beautiful the island of Maui is. I have been here before, numerous times, but my experience this time, and the gratitude I feel having been given the opportunity to build someone's dream home, is overwhelming. Not a day goes by I don't pinch myself that this is my "norm" now, and not a day goes by I think I won't hustle just as hard, or stop loving what I do this much!!! Anyways, thanks for following along on this crazy ride with me. You all mean the world to me! // in other news... you can rent a house on his same island and it looks like this 👆🏻👆🏻👆🏻 @beach.cottage.maui ... maybe when I am back in January I'll stay here!!! 🤙🏻🌈🌺
Maybe I'll just pick up and move to Hawaii, and find a house that has a sunroom just like this!! Sound good? I'll read more, eat healthier, drink green tea instead of coffee, and meditate. Who wants to come??? // tell me the designer please so I can tag //
I am currently at war with adult acne.... but I am in Hawaii, so who cares! Cheers to give zero F's and being present over perfect! Also, a book I am reading by @sniequist which is AMAZING. OK, Carry on // 📷 @tessaneustadt #clientfreakinfabulous //
Me and some #teamaid peeps are leaving tomorrow morning to have a design meeting for a home we are designing in HAWAII!! Yes that's right... HAWAII! I know what you all are thinking.... what a crappy gig , sounds horrible ... NOT 😂 anyways, this beach house by @alexanderdesignbuild is the perfect beachy inspo to get me ready for some island time design.. FUN FACT:: I was born in Kauai..and have family that live there, so technically I am from Hawaii already so it's totally no big deal to just go back to where I am from, hahahaha 😂🤣😜🤙🏻🐬🌈🏄🏼🏄🏼♀️🌺☀️
Oldie but a goodie. Can't stop won't stop #clientfreakinfabulous //📷 @tessaneustadt //
I wish I had a pic of all three of us, but I don't... cause it's rare I am not the one behind the lens. Anyways this is 36! Spending my bday sick in bed, but I am not letting it ruin my day. I am gonna watch the British Baking show all day and chill the F out! Sounds perfect to me! 36 years young #virgobirthday
Flashback, because I am delirious in bed, seeing triple. This was the first "Chataqua" ottoman I ever designed and fabricated, NOW we sell them all the time at @shoppe_by_ai // I think they have a few about to get uploaded so email firstname.lastname@example.org if you want dibs!! I also linked in profile 👍🏻 // 📷 @tessaneustadt #drclientclients
In a very short time, this house will be very different again. I can't wait to share the plans!! Until then, I still LOVE my living room! That's all!!! #clientmemyselfandicantmakeupmymindpartdeux
I interrupt my regularly scheduled pics of work, to bring you an update on my most proud accomplishment to date!! GWYNETH!! Today you are 8 little girl, and to say you are by far and wide the sweetest kid I have ever met, would be understated. Gwyneth, at 8 years old you are, above all things, kind. You have the biggest heart and the most compassionate soul. Your first priority is to help and make others feel good. Anyone who is on the receiving end of one of your famous hugs, instantly feels all the love in the world. You constantly sing and dance, and currently are obsessed with aerial arts and swinging while singing in our back yard tree swing. You love to play Mine Craft (in creative mode only 😂) and your favorite TV show is Americas Got Talent. You are 55" tall and 55 lbs. You love rocks and crystals and your favorite book is A Light In the Attic. You still sleep with your "woobie" and if you could play with animals all day long... you would!!! There are so many special and amazing qualities about you, and if I am honest... it's hard to think of many things about you I would change. I couldn't be a luckier Mama, and you couldn't be a more perfect kid. Happy Birthday sweet girl. I love you to the moon. #gwynethhonora
