The wrong way to use bookends.

DSC_9738

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...]

Winged.

I'm so loving my new winged Rometti Vase HERE. Its just the right amount of weird and pretty. Ugly pretty is the new pretty. I think. Im also very happy with this throw I scored on sale at Barney's. The throws are on sale for great great prices...also other stuff like linen napkins, trays etc can be scooped up for a fraction of their original (outlandish) prices. These home sales are awesome because really, does tabletop stuff change that much that a white linen napkin with gold threading will ever be out of style? … [Read more...]

Room/Art to Outfit…

Sketch42

I'm sorry but it was just too good of a match up! They are twins! It scares me a little bit that my painting looks so much like those pants and the way she paired it with a heavy dose of a white top: YES, well those match the chairs. The sunglasses in the deep purple even correspond to the darker blue paint at the top of the canvas. She should have worn an Edie Parker black and white clutch with that though, then she would have picked up the striped stool. The outfit pic is via Refinery 29's Australia Fashion Week coverage HERE, the painting and room is obviously my own.  … [Read more...]

Woody

Eddie cohen sketch42

More new art in my apartment, this one via my nephew photographer Eddie Cohen.  It's printed on aluminum and its fabulous. He's a huge Woody Allen fan, so this is a very personal piece to him. And I'm SO happy to have it. It's too cool for school... and I LOVE how it looks on the silver walls. I generally have enough paintings in my apartment (although I was totally the cobbler with no shoes for the past few months!) so I look for work I love in other fields.  Learn more about Eddie HERE.  My apartment feels like a whole new place to me. Between the round painting over the high chair, … [Read more...]
