The spring H&M catalog arrived in my mail box the other day and it took all of my self-control not to run out the door with my credit card yelling “charge it”. Also there is no spring in Southern California. It was 90 degrees this past weekend. We go from rain boots straight into flip flops and tank tops. But if we did have a real spring, how gorgeous it would be? Since I’m headed to New York in a couple of days to experience real spring time, I figured I would do a bit of outfit daydreaming. This is the outfit I see myself wearing in Central Park while eating a slice of pizza. I would then proceed to get pizza sauce all over the white shirt, forcing me to keep my coat buttoned all day to hide the stain. Which will be fine since it’s pretty chilly in New York right now. Oh, how I love outfit daydreaming. What outfits are you day dreaming about right now? Happy Shopping Everyone!…xoxo Typhanie
At the end of last year I had the pleasure of working on another charity design project with Vanessa De Vargas and Vanessa Kogevinas This time I decorated a room for Freehab with my partner in crime Allan Dallatorre. Freehab is headed by actors, Russell Brand and Danny Trejo and Lauri Burns of The Teen Project. Freehab is a rehab center located in Sun Valley. The project will help those who want and need to get back on their feet who are suffering from alcohol and drug addiction problems. Allan and I didn’t have a lot of time or supplies so we worked with what we had. Allan was genius enough to create two faux headboards with just a can of sample paint. A few key thrift store pieces and a reupholstered chair really brought it all together. I hope the residences at Freehad enjoy the space we created and I hope it helps them with their path to recovery. Happy Giving Everyone!..xoxo Typhanie

P.S. I LOVE charity projects and I LOVE giving back. I hate that it has taken me so long to post about this wonderful project but sometimes life just gets in the way. Many of the centers I’ve worked with still need donations. Anything you can provide is a blessing. I’ve included a list of the charities below. Thank You!!
Normally my Saturdays are quite boring but thanks to my friend Jill Seidner this Saturday will be nothing to yawn at. Jill and I will be attending the 15th annual Costume Designers Guild Awards. As someone who is très in love with everything fashion you can just imagine how over the moon I am right now. I’m still not 100% sure what outfit I will be wearing to this shindig but I’m certain I’ll find something at the eleventh hour. Having never attended an award show this should be fun. I shall try my best to tweet and Instagram all the fabulousness. So what are your weekend plans?
Hope you all have a wonderful and blessed weekend….xoxo Typhanie
Since I am sans my plus one this valentine’s day I don’t really have any plans. Granted I don’t believe you need a significant other to enjoy a day all about love but it’s always nice to share it with someone special. And since I’m always down for popping open a bottle of champagne, here is a free print of some bubbly you can enjoy all year round…Happy Valentine’s Day Everyone!!!

Happy New Year Everyone! I hope you have all been having a wonderful and blessed New Year so far. I know it has been awhile since I’ve posted but I really needed to take some time off to recharge my batteries. Spent a lot of time with family and friends this Holiday Season which was amazing and surely helped me to relax. Now I’m back and excited to get 2014 started. Granted I did just use the first two days of the New Year to get over a major hangover but now I’m truly ready. To kick things off I’ve made another DIY personalized life planner. There is no cleaning check list included in this years because I barley used it last year. I guess I don’t like cleaning. What’s that saying, “Life’s too short to clear your own house”. I’m already on that bandwagon. Anywho, I hope you enjoy the printable and the calendar helps you create the year you want. Please feel free to give me any feedback you want including what you think should be in next years calendar. A of the items included are listed below…Happy Organizing Everyone!

The month of December has started off with a bang. There are a lot of events happening in a short three day span. On Thursday I’m excited to attend AphroChic’s book signing at Room and Board. It will be great to personally ask her about the book and how/if the making of the book has influenced her style. If you are free you should stop by.
On Friday I will be trying to sneak in two events. First there is the Divine Design, which is one of the largest shopping events here in California. This is a Project Angel Food Event and all proceeds directly fund Project Angel Food’s meal and nutrition programs, feeding thousands of people throughout LA County, free of charge, who are debilitated by disease and struggling with serious illness such as cancer, heart disease, HIV/AIDS, renal failure and stoke. We love giving back here at Typhanie Peterson Design so we have donated several of our pillows to support the cause. If you are free any time Friday, Saturday or Sunday please stop by. You will be receiving some major discounts on some fabulous products. Plus you can get all your Christmas shopping done in a day.
The other event I will be attending on Friday is the Holiday Pop, Shop & Signing with Annette Joseph hosted by Adorno Magazine at Egg & Dart Home. The Shop will feature beautiful and unique gifts for all ages, curated by the top designers who will be featured in the upcoming issues of Adorno Magazine. Custom gift wrap will be available as well. Plus there will be a ton of other activities such as workshops. You can check out the schedule here. We have partnered with Hinge Decor to create a few handcrafted pillows for the shop. You can even get a sneak peek of our new fabric that won’t be available until the New Year.
If you are free any of these days please come out and say HI and share the Holiday cheer with me. I would LOVE to meet anyone that is crazy enough to read this blog…Happy Socializing Everyone!
