DESIGN + ART | Xavier Corbero in Residence.


Yesterday The Nowness posted one of their "In Residence" videos with Spanish artist Xavier Corbero. The 4 minute video is so beautifully shot and executed, I highly recommend you watch it. Seriously. Considered by many to be Spain's premier living sculptor, Corbero's home is a literal maze of wonders. The home has been 40 years in the making. Located in the town of Esplugues de Llobregat, named for the labyrinths of man made caves below it - some dating from roman times-  Corbero's home is on a quiet road in a suburb of Barcelona. He began purchasing delapidated building in the town decades … [Read more...]

The Time We Swapped Houses.


This past Xmas, the family and I swapped houses with a family from LA through the "creatives-only" house swap site called Behomm. I've gotten two reactions to this so far, some people think it's CRAZY and some people think it's AWESOME. It's kind of crazy and awesome, honestly. I wrote a whole story on Domaine today  about the mental gymnastics of swapping houses, the experience, the story of the amazing minimalist Space Age looking house we stayed in and the lovely people who live there. It's a pretty thorough and personal article about our attachments to physical things and why I wanted … [Read more...]

DESIGN + LIFESTYLE | An Afternoon With.


I always think about how I should be photographing more lived in spaces of "real people" for the blog. As much as I LOVE design, you can't compare a room with the character of its owners (particularly if that owner is really cool!) to a home where everything has been appropriated by a person "with taste." Good taste can be such bad taste sometimes. Perfect beige/silver/lavender/lightblue/taupe rooms make me stabby. Show me the stuff! Anyway, I found this blog called "An Afternoon With" about just that "This is a project about people. It is a project about our space and the things we keep and … [Read more...]

Joyce Silverman’s NJ Cottage x Domaine Home.

Ohhh boy! This is an exciting one! It's the NJ beach house of designer Joyce Silverman. This house was SUCH an awesome project to shoot. It's fun, it's happy, it's personal, and what's more, there are a million ideas that anyone could and should steal for their own homes. Every summer, Joyce, her husband and 5 children decamp to this historic NJ cottage just blocks from the beach. The house is a playground for kids and adults, she says, and I believe her! It's full of whimsey - from a signed basket ball sitting on her foyer table like art, to a giant cage for their parakeet Steve, to Jimmi … [Read more...]

My NJ Bedroom’s Epic Gallery Wall.


I should call this post, how to redo a room without buying any furniture. Every summer for the past 8 years, I pack up out of Manhattan and go stay with my in laws at the Jersey Shore for the summer. We stay in my husband's childhood bedroom, which my MIL did over for us when we got married. She did some nice beige grasscloth, and a matching  furniture set of all wood brown furniture. This summer, one morning, I SNAPPED. And I began a gallery wall. In four hours, I collected every piece of art I had in NJ , My grandma's vintage rackets, things from My MIL's basement, I hit up 3 antique stores, … [Read more...]
