DESIGN | Photos from around the house.


I think I spend 22/24 hours a day at home. I'm pushing up on 8 months now and the city is covered with black ice. That doesn't make for a very nimble lady. It also doesn't make for a very inspired blog. I do best when I feel vital and alive, part of the world! Connected with nature! I guess I'm just saying I'm ready for spring, actual birth and rebirth, sunshine on my face, the feeling of breaking a sweat (oh how I miss you)! A social life that doesn't revolve around real housewives. Creative, emotional and physical renewal. Don't think I'm alone on this one, the city is teaming with "fuck … [Read more...]

My Apartment.


For those new around these parts, I'll give you all a little rundown of the history of my apartment. We moved in back in 2008, when Cookie was just 3 months old. It was still a construction site.

I made a little plan, and went … [Read more...]

The wrong way to use bookends.


Just kidding, there is no wrong way to use bookends. I just bought those marble bookends-as-sculpture from Barney's. Good idea? This photo is testament to the power of cropping and how all photography is a lie. Just outside this photo there is another vase, a bowl, a missing coffee table, a barrel and a generally unbalanced room. Happy Friday! … [Read more...]

Le Sneak.

Sketch42 blue art

I'm always so torn. Sneak peaks or big reveals? Keep you appraised on what's happening here? Or shock you all at once.... On one hand, once you post something, people copy it, pin it and it's old news within a few weeks (at least within the design blogging world). On the other hand, this was at one point a design blog and what am I doing here if not sharing ideas? So I decided to show you my new piece. You may recall that I've wanted to do this for a while. A monochromatic canvas that is. I was all geared up to do one myself, when I met Tom from Crow Philosophy who makes these trapezoidal wood … [Read more...]
