Kelly Lee, blogger behind “Kelly Golightly” and a self-proclaimed “slashee” (aka business owner/writer/creative director), has crafted quite the colorful and dreamy space for herself and her hubby. Filled from top to bottom with unique pieces that reflect her love for an Audrey Hepburn-era gone by, Kelly’s home is truly a treat to tour. She infuses her space (and signature style) with a retro flair—pops of charming color, an unabashed abundance of pattern and conversation pieces that welcome late-night chats over a (vintage, gold-rimmed) glass of Champagne. Get ready to take more than a few notes from this inspiring guru—we certainly did!

We love that your blog acts as a fun peek into your life as a creative living in California. How and why did you first launch “Kelly Golightly?”
“Kelly Golightly” was born out of a desire to create a cocktail of style, adventure and glamour for the modern-day Audrey Hepburns of the world. “Kelly Golightly” is a sparkling style guide for the girl who cares more about Slim Aarons than Kim Kardashian. For the girl who savors the sweet life—from food to fashion to flamingos, fêtes and frolicking—the Golightly girl’s glass is always half-full and her bag is always packed.
