Digs: Sunrise Ruffalo's Sunny's Callicoon Pop

Our new favorite #digs rest in the quirky Catskills town of Callicoon, NY.  After reading about the space in Vogue, we made sure to stop through while on a recent summer road trip and fell in love with Sunny's Callicoon Pop- an impeccable trove of artful findings and rarities tucked deep in the rolling hills where an enchanting river hugs its little town. 

We've had serious admiration for proprietor Sunrise Ruffalo ever since her influential Kaviar and Kind shop in Los Angeles pioneered cool, fine jewelry and experiential shopping in the early 2000's. We've adored her unmatched personal style and when we heard she uprooted her family from the busy city-life to the offbeat town of Callicoon- we had to visit.

Digs: Amy Hughes of Salvage Style and Family

Amy Hughes is quite a local legend around town here in the SOMA neighborhoods and her beloved shop Salvage Style is a go-to for chic "interiors with a past." A seriously-skilled treasure hunter and Momboss of two littles (Vivienne and Nicholas), Amy brings a seasoned eye (she is a longtime magazine editor, author, and design consultant) to the town, so we couldn't wait to get inside her own home. Mid-century scores were presented off-kilter amongst cozy warmth (hello, stone fireplace) and sweet and citrus color-play, and we didn't want to leave her stylish playroom.  Take a look as Christy Kurtz-Harmon shows us around this quintessentially Boburbs home !

Digs: Kaila and Sloane

Here at PS, there's really nothing that tickles our fancy more than the charm of a creative, humble abode. This week, we meet California designer and stylist, Kaila and her new little Sloane in the Elmhurst neighborhood of Sacramento. A recent Petaluma-transplant, Kaila brings a kind of cool coastal minimalism to the house. There's a quiet loveliness in the moments of pause and simple decor, and our hearts swell with her little Waldorf nursery. Instagram and this ever-ebbing circle of community and motherhood brought us together and birthed a new friendship. Beth herself snapped photos on an afternoon visit. Click to take a look around her carefully collected, sweet home.
