5 QUESTIONS WITH BETTINA WHITEFORD E-COMMERCE, ANTIQUES AND CONSIGNMENT ARTICLE JENNIFER AUSTIN

12

Del Mar Lifestyle | April 2018


ORIGINALLY

FROM

VAIL,

COLORADO,

BETTINA WHITEFORD OF BW HOME HAS AN AFFINITY FOR BEAUTIFUL, QUALITY FURNITURE AND ANTIQUES, ATTRIBUTED TO HER EXPERIENCE AS A GIFT AND HOME FURNISHINGS BUYER FOR GORSUCH LTD, A HIGH-END STORE WITH EUROPEAN AND ALPINE INFLUENCE IN VAIL, COLORADO. She started consigning furniture serendipitously while helping her mother downsize. Whiteford  found boxes of china, crystal and other valuables so she started an eBay store. From there, she contacted designers with storage units full of unused items, eventually going to clients’ homes to photograph larger pieces then selling them online as well. One of her first big clients moved so Whiteford had enough inventory to open a showroom. BW Home has since outgrown the original showroom and is presently searching the Morena Boulevard area for a large  space that accommodates  the e-commerce business and a showroom.

WHERE DO YOU FIND YOUR PRODUCT?

3

TELL US SOMETHING ABOUT YOUR SHOPPER, WHO IS BUYING ONLINE? It varies so greatly because of our diverse inventory that is constantly changing, rather than being a store with a certain look or style. It never ceases to amaze me where we ship items and who is buying them. Of course, with online sales, there is a lot of anonymity, which aside from answering buyers’ questions and helping arrange items to be shipped, makes it difficult to tell who the buyer is really. It is interesting, however, that a lot of our more traditional items are being shipped to the south and the east coast, where the style is still more appreciated.

4

WITH E-COMMERCE COMES THE NEED FOR SHIPPING. HOW DO YOU SHIP YOUR PRODUCT? It was a large learning curve in the beginning. Especially since all of our items are one of a kind and cannot be replaced if damaged in transit. Certain items can go Fed-Ex or UPS, however, large pieces or furniture or

Del Mar Lifestyle | April 2018


SINCE 2002, DESIGNER TRACY LYNN HAS TREATED HER CLIENTS TO A CREATIVITY, COLLABORATION, AND VISION THAT IS UNMATCHED IN THE INTERIOR DESIGN INDUSTRY. Her singular vision guided the interior design of her own home that first year. The result created so much buzz that she soon had more work than she could handle on her own. Tracy Lynn has spent her career designing spaces for her clients and building a company of likeminded design experts. Today, that natural vision has grown from a team of one to over 15. Her designs have been celebrated because of their unwavering inspiration: the people who live in the home. In the process, her studio has become a leader in the world of interior design and a model for thriving businesses. Tracy Lynn Studio cultivates beautiful, functional spaces, excelling in both commercial and residential design. The boutique studio is skilled at marrying the interior and exterior of a space, creating a true sense of cohesion that radiates throughout every aspect of the design. The Studio’s knowledge of best practices and current trends coupled with their collaborative style, artistry and strong process make them the go-to design resource. One green design trend is the use of living walls or vertical gardens. Not only does this feature add depth, dimension and color to a bare wall, but brings the health benefits of plants indoors. These living tapestries, once installed are relatively easy to maintain, especially if succulents are incorporated into the design. Vertical gardens deserve the same approach and attention to detail as traditional gardens, taking advantage of layers, texture, contrast, color and blooming. They also add a unique element to any space! Tracy Lynn Studio partners up with The Succulent Situation, which provides unique succulent arrangements, to build the vertical succulent wall. Through the collaboration, the Studio and The Succulent Situation come together to create a beautiful, statement piece for any home or space. TracyLynnStudio.com

TECH SAVVY

SUSTAIN & INNOVATE ARTICLE SHANNON BARR KILROY REALTY WAS FOUNDED MORE THAN 70 YEARS AGO, AND SERVES AS A PUBLICLY TRADED REAL ESTATE INVESTMENT TRUST THAT DEVELOPS, ACQUIRES, AND MANAGES OFFICE, MIXED-USE, AND LIFE SCIENCE TECHNOLOGY REAL ESTATE ASSETS ON THE WEST COAST, SEATTLE, WA, AND SAN FRANCISCO, CA. They have multiple locations in San Diego— including right here in Del Mar. But what sets them apart from other companies is their devotion to sustainability in commercial real estate. “There’s a large overlap between eco-friendliness and value,” says Sara Ness, Kilroy Realty’s Senior Vice President of Sustainability. Kilroy’s commitment to sustainable energy and water efficient buildings means lower operating expenses, making the overall financial value a good business decision for tenants. “Tenants increasingly have a workforce that really cares about the environment and say it’s important to them,” says Ness. According to Ness, real estate contributes to 40% of carbon emission, and transportation makes up 23%. She says that in order to meet environmental goals, energy consumption issues in buildings must be solved. “Buildings have to be part of the conversation,” says Ness. “It’s really hard to get buildings into the conversation just because the nature of our industry, so we’re trying to provide leadership around that to get the technologies into real estate that is really going to help us as an industry achieve our goals.” Their sustainability program involves making existing buildings more eco-friendly and ensuring new developments are sustainable.

Ness says Del Mar typically has a lot of landscaping, and one of the first things they do is major irrigation retrofits. “We keep doing that as irrigation gets better to reduce our water consumption,” says Ness, who adds that charging stations are also growing in popularity locally. Then they ensure they have good mechanical systems and control packages, making sure engineers have insight into what they’re using.

EAT. THIS. Incredible Kiwi NOW.

ARTICLE JENNIFER AUSTIN

UNDOUBTEDLY, YOU HAVE STROLLED BY THIS LITTLE, FUZZY, BROWN FRUIT AT THE FARMERS' MARKET AND IN THE PRODUCE AISLE AND PERHAPS YOU PICKED UP A FEW TO BRING HOME. Once peeled and sliced this sweet yet tart fruit displays the most vivid green pulp with tiny black seeds. Traditionally, Europeans referred to it as a Chinese Gooseberry, attributed to its origin in north-central and eastern China. However, it wasn't until 1962 that farmers in New Zealand rebranded it the Kiwifruit and once it was imported into the United States around 1966, Americans dropped the fruit and went with Kiwi. This little, fuzzy fruit is quite the powerhouse and packs 20 vital nutrients including 5 times more Vitamin C than an orange. Perhaps it has reached superfruit status because it is also rich in vitamin A, K, E and B, potassium, copper, folate, and fiber.  Here are some recipes that celebrate the fruit, in other ways than sliced and diced, to enjoy the benefits of kiwi.
