ONE ROOM CHALLENGE | THE PINK ROOM | WEEK 3

DSCF1298

Hiya! Stuff is happening, we're making progress! Yesterday we built the bed, the desk and picked art and fabric for drapes. I think yesterday was the first time I was excited by this room, instead of terrified. Here are some shots of our progress, they are super rough, but just an idea of what's happening. A new painting of mine that we will be hanging in the room! I think it looks like an actual blood bath, but it happens to look really good in the room!  Our fabric choices for pillows and drapes. Kelly Wearstler Edo linen pillow, Miles Redd Schumacher water color drapes: She has this … [Read more...]

What I’m wearing + scouting in early Spring 2016.

spring-2016

Every so often I like to share some of the stuff I'm buying, or looking at buying on the internet. This transitional weather in NYC is kind of rough. It goes from 40 to 60 back down to 40 within a couple of hours. But who wants to be wearing a winter coat and heavy sweater? NO ONE. I literally have one outfit that I've been wearing every single day, except when I wash it, then I transition to some lesser outfit.  I'm wearing Acne Jeans, a beige cable knit Topshop sweater, sneakers with no socks and The Arrivals Jean Jacket, which is awesome. Paired with a choker by Roxanne Assoulin and Sunday … [Read more...]

I spent Friday afternoon perusing the AD Design Show with my art/design bestie Raquel Cayre... We mostly focused on the "Made" section of the show, which features over 150 artists and designers, local and emerging artisans in art, fine furniture, sculpture, textiles and lighting. Almost everyone I spoke to was based out of Brooklyn and hand making some pretty gorgeous things. "Art Furniture". Basically, I was in indie furniture heaven, not least because.... CHAIRS! There were many many many lovely chairs for me to gape at. Some distinct trends emerged. Lighting is still heavily mid-century … [Read more...]

December 2015 | Current Mood.

december-2015-mood

Tis the season. The season for shamelessly staying inside for days on end with no regrets, that is. Like, getting home Friday afternoon and then not leaving till Monday morning. I had one of those weekends. I went out, but not during daylight hours;) Honestly, it's more relaxing than sitting on a beach, isn't it? Netflix and Seamless and a lot of blankets and the same sweatpants on repeat. YES. In that spirit, I bring you, December's Current Mood. Textures, muted colors, ivories, the perfect nude lipstick along with that fringed sweater. All day long. Mohair Blanket $350 Velvet Pillow … [Read more...]

Last week Consort Design - the up and coming coolest design firm in LA, opened their first brick and mortar on Melrose, which is quickly becoming a little design mecca in LA.  LA's vintage design game is way superior to NYC's. First of all, it skews younger, see below, second of all, WAY more affordable. Third of all, its in abundance. The LA design scene is awesome.  Consort was founded by my buddies interior designers Mat Sanders  and Brandon Quattrone who linked up with client Marie Goble to create this space. Mat is Creative Director at My Domaine, and we met at Legends of La Cienega, when … [Read more...]
