Danni Remender’s Modern Kid-Friendly Home

 

Modern Kid-Friendly Home

Danni Remender’s global perspective and love for muted and modern design have all left their mark on her children’s boutique Fawn Shoppe. As the founder, Danni leads the creative direction for her shop—which features a thoughtfully curated collection of whimsical, beautiful designs. Today, Danni takes us on a tour of her LA home, where it’s easy to see another manifestation of her love for minimalistic design. “Natural light, elegant neutrals, white and primary color pops love to live together,” she says—and whether we’re gazing at her beautiful home or scrolling through Fawn Shoppe collections, it’s easy to pinpoint Danni’s penchant for simple design mixed with a dash of humour.

Tell us a little about yourself. How did you get to where you are today?
Sheryl Sandberg describes the ideal career path as a jungle gym, not a ladder. On my jungle gym, I’ve been inspired by children and design in different ways that I now combine at Fawn Shoppe. Between us, we’ve taught children, traded global securities, advised on brand direction and structured mergers. And yes, we actually draw on all of this in what we do now.

 

 


How do you inject personality into your home? For example, tell us about the giant sheep in your living room!
That’s Gerry. He was used for an ad I was shooting and needed a good home. I like a certain amount of humour in my house.

How would you describe the aesthetic of your home?
Livable modern. Cozy white. With toys and art. And comics.

Which room is used most in your home?
Our living and dining area opens to the outside space and pool, which is great with two wilds.

How has the aesthetic of your home changed since having kids?
We have relaxed just the right amount. White walls, bleached wood and greys work surprisingly well with children and their things. It’s more fun.

Do you have a philosophy for your style? How do you choose items to style both in your home and for your own personal style?
It’s hard not to be influenced by geography. Though perhaps it’s ironic how well Scandinavian design works in LA. Both places are bright perhaps. Natural light, elegant neutrals, white and primary color pops love to live together.

What are some of your favorite places to shop for home goods in the Los Angeles area?
I’ll swing by Individual Medley for little things, and Potted is my favorite garden center. Otherwise, Fawn Shoppe. If I love it, I buy it for the shop.

 

 


Being a business woman and a mother is a high commitment! How do you handle the daily juggle? Any tips?
Balance is an issue we all struggle with. It’s about doing some things perfectly, most things acceptably and flushing the rest.

 


How do you stay inspired?
Kristin and I have a shared obsession with children’s fashion and design. We’re nerds. Always inspired in our quest for the different and the best.

Next favorites: The Great, for required self-indulgence.

What’s your current beauty routine?
I wash my face with really cold water, exfoliate weekly and live for mascara. The rest I can skip.

 


What’s next for Fawn Shoppe?
Womens! Clothing and home. You’ll also see an expanded party, décor and toys selection ahead of the holidays.
