Last month, we had a meeting with local interior designer, Holly Hickey Moore. Not only is Holly a talented designer, she is also a fashion-lover (she seriously always looks like a million bucks). Holly masterfully designed this "pop-up shop" vignette for Dwell with Dignity's Thrift Studio. When we saw what she was creating, we knew we had to shoot our April editorial in the space. The design is graphically-inspired with rich color tones and a touch of whimsy. Feeling the mod-vibes, we teamed up with local vintage shop, Wild Gem, to source our outfits, giving a modern take on retro silhouettes. The pink beetle-print midi skirts are designed by Holly Hickey Moore herself... we're thinking Holly needs to expand her skillset into fashion and selling these babies!

Any business location needs some level of security. We sourced our 8-camera LaView Video Surveillance System from Overstock after we moved in. It was kind of an after-thought— it wasn't until we were moved in and had all of our equipment installed that I started to feel uncomfortable leaving at night. Not unsafe, but just felt a little vulnerable leaving all of our business items unmonitored. Being able to pull up the LaView app on my phone and see the space when I'm not there is nothing short of amazing. I can't tell you the peace of mind it brings, knowing that we have video recordings of all happenings around our headquarters.
We installed our video surveillance system ourselves! I had asked our contractor for an estimate to install the system, and they came back with an outrageous quote. SO I ditched that idea and recruited my husband, Thomas, and his friend to spend a Saturday doing this. The directions were easy to follow and the set-up was much easier than we anticipated!
