Moody Florals.

sketch42 dark florals

Happy Monday! This weekend it rained straight through and both my kids had the flu- and so we were all going a little stir crazy. I had to try to keep my mind busy and do something creative indoors. I've been so inspired by dark moody florals, or "The Masculine Floral" this spring - in both fashion and design- that I took all the old flowers I had in the apartment, placed them on a black canvas … [Read more...]

Well, my reaction to all of those and to most kids that I don't actually know or have a vested interest in is "meh," but the other day Courtney told me … [Read more...]

Of course she sleeps naked, lives in a brownstone that's like the set of a Wes Anderson movie, of course its in Brooklyn, of course she's young and effortlessly beautiful, of course she makes shabbat dinner, of course she's an artist and mother and has tattoos and smokes at home when the … [Read more...]
