Come take a look at Brett Heyman's gorgeous Connecticut sanctuary. Heyman is the founder / designer of Edie Parker accessories. She lives in Manhattan with her husband, daughter, and 2nd baby on the way in a Mid-Century, colorfully loud and visually funky apartment.

Hey All, Today I have a cool collab to show you! I partnered with method on their “fear no mess” campaign! They challenged me to tackle a messy DIY around my house and I thought it would be super to restore the cracked tiles in the lovely old fireplace in my daughter’s new room.  I LOVE the look of the tiles, so I didn’t want to replace them, and I didnt even mind the cracked look, but of course I didnt want her to hurt her feet or stub her toe while walking on them.

He's being called  "one of the most unique and intriguing new voices in indie film." and the film has been called "a brilliantly insane style piece, but with a surprising amount of heart. It feels like a collision of The Virgin Suicides and Election, but, at the same time, is wholly its own film. " The movie's title lends to a simple notion of a young, doe-eyed cheerleader and when we meet Mickey, she is just … [Read more...]
