Summer | Mint, Pop and Grasses.

summer2016

My favorite picks from this summer's home offerings. I've always loved rattan and wicker and grass- who doesn't- but that doesn't jive in my city apartment and I was always kind of just forcing it anyway. Now I can go full throttle on the rattan, yay! Also, is it a known thing that all outdoor furniture is RIDICULOUSLY expensive and mostly not attractive? I would love some good sources from you all! Thanks! Classic Rainbow Mugs by Vignelli Associates, 1975. I bought these from the Lisa Perry Pop Up shop, but they aren't online. You can get at the MoMA. Reminds me of childhood no? $60 for … [Read more...]

ART | The world of BFGF.

Screen Shot 2016-06-16 at 9.14.08 AM

Artist BFGF makes the most delightful prints and blankets. I love the tone of the work. It gives a delightful nod to art history, like the work of Matisse, Gauguin, Rousseau and Picasso while also referencing classical art forms and of course, thumbing its nose at pop culture. The ones with the Simpsons in them kill me. You can buy the work in a bunch of different ways, pillows, prints, shower curtains, bathing suits, but my favorite are the blankets, particularly hung as tapestries. The muted colors are so good. I can't decide which to buy, cause I love them all! The handmade pottery is also … [Read more...]

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...]

BEST OF | Architectural Digest Design Show 2015

IMG_0001

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...]
