IMG_4495

Hey! Soon I can't believe it, but I'm doing the very popular Calling it Home One Room Challenge this season. For those not familiar - a bunch of bloggers and designers each take on a decorating project of one room, which they complete in 6 weeks - and share with the readers once a week. This is week one, intro and inspo week. Sooooo, admittedly, most of my "design" projects have been for my own self. Which is a good thing, to me, cause I can do whatever I want, answer to know one, and take my sweet time coming up with a plan.

T Magazine is killing it! This last issue was awesome. I loved the article where artists presented work of their own kids, loved the story on artist and chair maker (and the man who single handedly changed our thinking about Terrazzo!) Max Lamb. And I loved this story about Canadian globe trotting Art Dealer and furniture maker Nicolas Bellavance-Lecompte.

Hola! Hope your new year is off to a fantastic start. This mornings 6:45 wake up hit me like a ton of bricks, I'll tell ya! Anyway, I'm excited to start fresh, it's such an arbitrary day to decide to undertake new things, but it works! My personal resolutions are to go back to working out 4x a week, and lose the 15 lbs of baby weight - he is now 8 mos old! It's time!- and to procrastinate less, because procrastinating leads to anxiety and anxiety leads to procrastinating.  Professionally, I'm looking to shoot more creative spaces for Sketch, and the various other publications I work for. I … [Read more...]
