Whilst living in Barcelona, I saw mini cacti being sold all over La Rambla, and I quickly developed a love for our prickly friends. They make any space feel so airy and light. There are so many types and colors to play around with, as well as some neat display options. My personal favorites are minimalist wall art pieces, terrariums that either sit on display or even hang from the ceiling, and the unique ceramic pieces that house multiple baby cacti. Much like my two head vases I filled with my own mini cacti garden just the other day!
We want to thank Nevada Women’s Business Center for inviting us to be a part of their panel of speakers to discuss social entrepreneurship last week! While our team was spread across the country completing projects out of state, Austrie represented Lisa Escobar Design on a panel discussion to chat about our approach to social entrepreneurship. With so many amazing women in business here in Las Vegas, we’re so proud to be able to participate in such events! Check out the video HERE!

We love this festive time of year when we can add some holiday decorations to our homes. However, there are ways we can do it without some of the tacky items, which are better left at the dollar store. We’ve racked our brains, and the great inter web, to bring you some fab Halloween decór ideas you’ll want to leave up all year round.
We recently had the opportunity to interview Jason Corbett of Walls of Original Design (W.O.O.D.) as one of our Confident. Fearless. Inspired. guests here at APJ! He’s been a wonderful addition to our C.F.I. alumni, hasn’t he?! We’ve taken some clues out of the things we talked about in his interview and created a space (we believe) he will love! We call it his masculine, mid-century modern, urban escape. If you missed our interview with Jason, you can find it HERE.
It’s time to meet our newest Confident. Fearless. Inspired guest: Jason Corbett! From right here in Las Vegas, Jason and his team create wall tiles and small home accessories at Walls of Original Design. We had the chance to chat with him about his product, inspiration, travels and more. What can’t he live without? Let’s find out!
Let’s face it, the dorm room life is a squished life. I was reminded of the fact as I dropped my younger sister off at BYU to start her sophomore year. We arrived at her apartment, took a look at the worn-out cabinets and shelves, entered the bathroom to see that the toilet didn’t flush, and there was mold growing in the corners of the shower. Typical college apartment, right? It doesn’t have to be! With the discovery of some mahogany stain under the kitchen sink, we spruced up damaged areas of the wood, bought some bleach and cotton balls to soak the moldy areas and quickly notified maintenance about the toilet (S.O.S.!) Thanks for the help, mom! With these projects underway, we went to decorating the (under furnished) apartment. Here are a few tips that guided us to making her dorm-like apartment her home for the next few months. We hope you can use and share these tips too!
We’re often looking for a design solution to bring our home or business to the next level. We tend to shy away from the thought of using large scale murals for a variety of reasons, such as the fear of looking tacky, but there’s a classy way of doing it! Here are some installations that prove it can be a great option for all of us.
