If you haven’t heard of Kalon Studios, boy are you missing out. The made-in-Los Angeles furniture brand is booming—not to mention utterly fabulous! Here, the designer and co-founder Michaele Simmering invites us into her beautiful Silverlake home, that is of course, filled with hers and her husband Johann’s exceptional makings (the duo just won the coveted 2014 Martha Stewart American Made award). Along the way, she introduces us to their two adorable daughters, 8-year-old Io and 5-year-old Echo. With an admirable intentional approach to design and honest take on motherhood, get ready to be inspired!

Fabulous piece! This was great interview. She is beautiful and I adore her interiors and design – so much talent! It’s been so powerful to me to read about women who are following their dreams and making their work work for them. Love her daughters’ names, too.

Warm Regards,

These features showing real women living real lives are the best! I love getting a peek into other women’s homes and I’m usually so inspired I redecorate my shelves!!

Love this article! Such an inspiring woman. This is such a random question: Does anyone know where I can find that silver water jug dispenser? I’ve been searching for a not-to-ugly water dispenser for ages and I love this one. Thanks, all!

    Michaele

    The water dispenser we have is designed to be used to store oils and vinegars. If you do a search for stainless steel oil or water dispensers you will find them. I believe ours is made by Minox. Thank you for the nice comments! – michaele
