one of my favorite photographers recently captured my absolute FAVORITE interior designer (of all time forever and ever)’s beautiful malibu mansion. see them all here.
there aren’t words for how obsessed i am with these photos from the
wildfox white label spring 2012. love love love.
new year, new favorite artist. i think im off to a good start.

i would love for 1 or 5 of these amazing porcelain diamond necklaces created by Tero Kuitunen to end up in my stocking. they are currently being sold in the weekday carnival shop. hint hint. too bad there are only 4 more days until christmas!!
im taking a little break for the holidays, which is why my posts have been slowly trickling in. i have been wrapping up some projects and have some new exciting things coming up in 2012. i will definitely continue pinterest-ing and tumblr-ing but i promise to pick back up after christmas and my birthday (NYE)!
amazing. ordering. now. find out more here.
i kinda love this painting but i cannot figure out who the artist is! i know i have photos of a house saved somewhere with lots of work by this artist but i cant remember where. anyone know who it is?
this looks exactly like what i need to get over my seasonal stuffy nose and sore throat. a weekend trip to the warm and wildly colorful Saguaro Hotel in Scottsdale, Arizona! Apparently it is pretty new and was “inspired by the contemporary architecture of Mexico and the Arizona desert… designed around the color and light of the surrounding landscape.” sounds good to me!
i spent my thanksgiving holiday in atlanta and one of the things we did while there was visit the georgia aquarium. it was definitely and unforgettable experience. i felt like a little kid the entire time. some of the exhibits were typical of a zoo but i few were pretty mind blowing. i just kept thinking how crazy it is that nature created all of these amazing colors.
i love these photos shot by Theo Wenner for Self Service. The girls all look like they are still pondering a decision or discovery from the night before and have been so wrapped up in the future they’ve stayed up all night in their outfits from the party.
once again im lost for words. perfection. via dti

i swear i have a new artist crush every other day. today and for a while its gotta
be brooklyn based artist, vince contarino. i mean seriously? how amazing.
thank god it’s friday! i’ve been a bit lazy with the posts lately but only because i’ve been so busy with my million other little projects. although i did just buy a snazzy new camera with some vintage lenses and such, so things are gonna get real interesting around here once i figure out how to use it :)
see more photos here
the pieces themselves are striking but it was the photography that caught my eye.
i have been playing with watercolor a lot these last few weeks and after finding
the lovely moniquilla lookbook i am so so inspired.
ahh. new house obsession. can you believe all this color is in sweden?
The new Martin Margiela Beijing flagship store looks pretty amazing. The multi-floor boutique, sells the complete range from its apparel, accessories, and home collections. I love the use of wood and concrete and the aluminum slide to get from the second to first floor.
Now that Halloween has passed I am already in the mood for hot chocolate and christmas movies. Aerin Lauder’s home looks like the perfect winter escape.
just found my favorite home of the day, too bad it’s in berlin.
it’s lovely non-the-less, see more pictures of it here.
i love this series entitled “interiors” by brazilian artist Ana Elisa Egreja. I am generally drawn to more abstract paintings, but i’ve always had a thing for realist and surrealist works.
planetblue’s latest lookbook channels diá de los muertos.
Tory Burch co-founder opens first flagship concept store in Soho! Love love love! I want to visit so bad, all of the Tory Burch stores are amazing and the C. Wonder flagship store does not disappoint. Apparently, you can monogram almost anything in the store, customize the music and lighting in your dressing room, and make purchases right there from your iPhone.. not to mention how much i love the graphics. Sweet.
there is a reason i am obsessed with desire to inspire, because those two lovely ladies are constantly posting homes like this for me to obsess over.
idk who this guy is or what he does but he looks like a pretty cool dude to me.
Cape Town based designer, Jordan Metcalf has a pretty amazing portfolio, but it seemed especially appropriate to look at right before halloween.
i am absolutely drooling over this kitchen! im so sad i found it on tumblr without a link to the original source. id love to see the rest of the house.
one of the best process films I have ever seen, of a pair of artists creating a mural together.[vimeo http://www.vimeo.com/15076572 w=470&h=264]
love. love. LOVE this new shoot by free people.
look what i found on d*s the other day! auuhmazing home of fashion designer gretchen jones. love. see full article here.
i’ve had photos of this loft saved in my inspiration folder for idk how long. i just came across it again on ideastosteal and fell in love all over again. now my beau would never go for all this pink but i could definitely reinterpret this look with a few more masculine colors.
i dont know what it is, but lately i have really had a thing for giant maps. here are 3 photos i came across on tumblr recently that i just love.
i have seen this home on at least 3 other blogs, buuuut its just so amazing and perfect i had to show it again. LOVE! originally posted here.
beautiful branding. found here.
how cool is this place? the youth factory in Merida, Spain was built by a husband wife duo to help attract the restless, unemployed street youth and keep them off the streets by providing them with a place to skateboard, dance, climb rocks, create graffiti — whatever they would otherwise do in much more sinister surroundings. via the cool hunter.
i love this planet blue lookbook shot at the ace hotel in palm springs!
it makes me so sad to see summer leave.
i was browsing my tumblr archives and came across these beautiful plant photos. i have no idea of their original sources (my biggest issue with tumblr) but they are amazing nonetheless. these would make great watercolor paintings..
make it a good one!
beautiful! sadly they are not available in english yet and I cannot read the website, not that i would mind having a copy in a foreign language..
just another reason why i need to get back to california asap. before march 25th to be exact. LACMAhas a new exhibition coming that is the first major study of California midcentury modern design. With more than 300 objects—furniture, ceramics, metalwork, fashion and textiles, and industrial and graphic design—the exhibition examines the state’s role in shaping the material culture of the entire country. amazing. but the MAIN reason i want to go, is because Charles and Ray Eames’ untouched living room has been relocated and reassembled, piece by piece, at LACMA for the exhibition!
have i mentioned my obsession with globes & world maps? well if not, i definitely have one, and when i was these colorful creations by these are things, i instantly fell in love. they have a cute little story about how they were actually searching for a modern map to document their travels and when they couldnt find one they decided to just make one themselves (how clever us designers can be) and a year later it has become their specialty! i need one immediately! although I am having trouble deciding on a color :)
my to visit in los angeles list is getting longer and longer everyday. the newest addition to the list is this new Los Angeles based pastry shop Fruute, who found their match made in sweet tooth heaven when they hired Ferro Concrete to brand their mouth watering bakery concept.
“We are like fruit matchmakers.” they said when speaking about their philosophy, but they seem to have matched a lot more than fruit to create these unforgettable pieces of food art. yum!
German artist Martin Pfeifle’s art installations always relate to their environment, the exhibition space itself becomes his art piece while allowing viewers to move around it. During the last couple years, Martin has created some beautiful installations always playing with colors and geometric elements.
His latest ‘Rotemartha’ installation was installaed in the former imperial abbey of Aachen-Kornelimünster. It consists of a series of long tinted film strips in six different shades of red. The strips are tied together to create a supper long band that stretches throughout one entire floor of the abbey.
I would love to see this in person! The architecture of the room is beautiful itself, let alone being wrapped in hot pink!
i will do a better post about aureta another day, (i am being lazy) but if you love fashion blogs as much as i do then her’s is a must see.
amazing collages by swedish jewelry design studen George Chamoun. the idea was to work with movie icons from two different eras. The project combines several themes and concepts such as ideals, anatomy and Hollywood patterns against the factor of time. According to Chamoun, his intention was not to make comparisons of any sort, but rather to emphasize the structural aspect as well as the existent similarities, in spite of the era. interesting.
“What do you do when something is so out of reach?” well if you are super amazing and stop it right now, then you marry your love of fashion and skateboarding, and throw the two components into these perfect planks of wood! Based on the iconic fashion print of 2011 by Céline.
these dreamy alien-esque paintings by kelly tunstall have got to be my new favorite! i want someone to make a movie or cartoon from her beautiful (kinda creepy) girly characters. the mermaids are my favorite, and her use of color and pattern have once again filled me with inspiration. her portfolio is a must see, i wanted to blog everything but it was gonna get ridiculous, def check it out.
the La Purificadora hotel in Puebla, Mexico is definitely now on my to visit list.
ive never been so envious, this is some seriously amazing oil painting! i am dying to go raid the art store and paint portraits of everyone now. kirsten mccrea is absolutely my new hero. this project, entitled HOT TOPIC is a series of 60 paintings of feminist icons, based on the Le Tigre song of the same name. you can see more of the project on her blog here. i discovered the project here on art hound (also my new fav).
how do you explain being more than obsessed with something? check out The Vamoose and you will understand. The Vamoose is a one-woman operation created and maintained by Kathryn Blackmore. Designed and handmade in the United Kingdom, their pieces are inspired by natural history, a growing collection of vintage finds and an exploration of traditional crafts with modern influences. love.
“Starting in 1935, Russell Vernon Hunter & Chapman of the Library of Anthropology in Santa Fe set out to develop a portfolio of Navajo blankets spanning 1840-1910- several of their selections can be seen here.” Is really is an impressive collection and an amazing source of inspiration.

labor day weekend in asheville, nc. my dad had great plans to go hiking but mother nature had other ideas seeing as it has been raining pretty much nonstop since we arrived. nonetheless we have had a great time so far driving up the blue ridge mountain parkway and hanging out at the laaff festival downtown. let the adventures continue. enjoy!
fun branding by mexican designer jaime romero.
so one click led to another and about 5 links down the line i discovered cartype,
a website devoted to automobiles and their typography, and the lovely vw shopvans.
want some cool stuff?
these are paintings my friend.
i will do posts that actually mean something another day. for now, anther grouping of random images i feel look nice together.

my pinterest has been making me immensely happy lately, creating these crazy image combos all by itself, catching my eye and giving me all sorts of inspiration.
have you looked at the coveteur lately? you might wanna check it out.
darn those clever people. they get you every time.
i love this homes color palette. very calm and serene.
where have i been and why have i never heard of patternity, the London based design studio specialising in the discovery & application of pattern within the Fashion, Interior & Luxury fields??
Patternity consists of three core parts; an image RESOURCE featuring an archive of constantly updated patterned finds from around the world, an East London based studio where they work on a range of products, projects, designs, collaborations & consultations across the creative industries & also a curated online SHOP selling limited edition & one off patterned pieces. Through these three areas they aim to encourage people to see, enjoy & be inspired by the patterned world around them.
check them out, they have some pretty amazing stuff, and a great resource feed of unconventional pattern inspiration.
i feel like i am slowly but surely becoming a fan of modern homes. i have always liked how they looked but not the idea of living in one (if that makes sense). the caulfield house is changing my mind.
gorgeous italian tile from elle decor italia july-august 2011
so i was browsing pinterest the other night and i came across this beautiful shot of a waterfall and glowing blue-green swimming hole. i automatically assume it is in some super exotic location, but immediately repin it anyway. i decide to check out where the image is from and discover that it is actually in arizona at the base of the grand canyon! i immediately start plotting to visit this place and find out you must first hike 10 miles in the sun down to the bottom (or you can charter a helicopter or ride a donkey) and then you are free to swim in the pool and then spend the night in the canyon or hike ten miles back out. hmmm. so i go tell the boy “we have to go to this place its amazing! la la la” and he asks to see the picture, so I show him and he is like, “oh my nephew when there when he was in arizona” haha for some reason this annoyed me because i always like being the first to visit a place and then go tell everyone about it but nonetheless he agreed and now we are going :)

my kind of artist.
i just ordered these two books, and if you love all things bohemian and 1970s you must too! i absolutely cannot wait for them to arrive in my little mailbox.
Gypset Style: Jetset + Gypsy = Gypset, is about an emberging group of artists, musicians, fashion designers, surfers, and bon vivants– who lead semi-nomadic, unconventional lives. order here or visit the website here.
the Pulp Art Book– “Neil Krug’s stylized photos of his girlfriend [now wife], the model Joni Harbeck, were taken with Polaroid film years past its sell-by date. They have the kind of grainy, sun-scorched feel of a Sergio Leone spaghetti western. And ever since the couple began posting the photos on Flickr early this year, they’ve drawn a blaze of attention.” – The New York Times.
i have blogged about the beautiful work of daniel egneus before, but while exploring inspiration for my own watercolor endeavors i couldnt resist revisiting his portfolio and showing his work again.
need a new fashion blog to obsess over? gary pepper vintage is my new favorite! forgive me if i am waaay late, but the photography is gorgeous and it is a nice departure from most of the southern california / new york based sites. enjoy!
these insect prints by french artist, E.A. Séguy, are beautiful! they have been floating around the internet for a while now but i just recently found a good collection of them and learned more about the artist. see more here.
need your daily gypsy bohemian house fix? find it insideinside.
i was so inspired by the work of spencer studio (who i posted about yesterday) that i started a few water-color projects of my own, here is a sneak peek.
i am fully aware how obsessed i am with artsy weddings and all of the creative little extras the cool couples throw in. i am especially in love with hand made invitations, while i LOVE letterpress, lately i have been really really into handmade, unperfect invites for that perfect day. First seen here, these hand painted save-the-dates, by spencer studio are just my style. (I love the art direction of the photos as well.)
from my favorite streetstyle source.
if you’re in the mood for daydreaming (unless you can actually afford these vacays) then you should check out my new fav welcome beyond, and pretend you are gonna fly to thailand and rent out this jaw dropping vacation home.
this is my goal. im glad we settled that.
i am completely obsessed with this amazing lifestyle blog I came across a few weeks ago. the website is called “an afternoon with..” and is described as “a project about people. It is a project about our space and the things we keep and the things we don’t throw away. It is a project about looking for and finding connections we all have. It is about seeing yourself in these spaces. Every picture is a portrait of the owner – be it a room, an object or a view. Every portrait in the end becomes a self-portrait.”
an amazing read to spend a rainy evening browsing.
drool worthy hippie-esque garden, found while browsing one of my new favorites, Terri Planty. enjoy!
Dan-ah Kim’s paintings are hauntingly beautiful. I was first introduced to her work while working on the upcoming issue of Blü Magazine. I especially love the titles she gives each piece: hunting my demons and these i steal for you.
my beau loves venice beach, so i was super excited to find and show him artist, David Quadrini’s beachside home, located right on the venice beach strip.
ive been trying to convince my beau that once we move to california we should become graffiti artists and that he can hold the ladder and be my lookout while i tag walls and old buildings with designs i’ve yet to come up with. after browsing the portfolio of brazilian artist, nuria mora, i am completely sold on the idea!
i realize that i declare my love for different artists on a regular basis, but this guy mark warren jacques, has truly truly stolen my heart. although it seems like everyone (including myself) is making art with triangles and rainbows these days, jacques’ take on the subject is fresh. i am dying to order a few prints of his work but all of my favorites are sold out. horrible.
i am kind of obsessed with international artists and textile designer, Karen Barbé doesn’t disappoint. Based in Santiago, Chile, Barbé has such a fun style that I am tempted to go to the art store and spend the afternoon crosstiching myself.
pretty cool art by french fashion designer laurent desgrange.
fun jewelry by sabrina dehoff.
i love being a designer. and i love looking at great design, like this identity suite by charleston based stitch design co.
im obsessed with this photoshoot. the colors are amazing and the girl
is gorgeous, plus it has that cool retro/vintagey feeling without looking
forced or contrived.
some people are so creative! these painted antlers, madebycassandrasmith are just my style and definitely made me wish i’d thought of it first. im gonna buy one and hang my jewelry and rings on it.
pretty freakin’ amazing paintings by artist, beau chamberlain.
these are what my dreams look like.
i was so excited to run across these photos from Proud Mary, a textile company that supports and empowers global artisans and their families while celebrating their beautiful work. LOVE.
i love photos like these. they make me long for california and camping.
dear closet: please manifest this shirt. thanks.

i love this.
kind of creepy, but still really amazing paintings by contemporary artist,
so im still stalking everyone with awesome stuff to stack up inspiration for my portfolio revamp and move back to california. oraclefox is one of my favorite blogs, so i was super excited yesterday to see that mandy (the author) had posted amazing images of her workspace. i loved everything (of course) see all of the pictures and article here.
yea so im totally crushing on indian photographer prabuddha dasgupta‘s portfolio, i cannot pronounce his name, but his work is STU-NNING! the colors are so rich and vibrant and the imagery so exotic and tasty. love love love. i want to hop on a plane now! (and subscribe to vogue india; damn international shipping!)
i know that was ridiculously long, but i just loove every one of his pictures. i need a coffee table book. goodnight.
beautiful photos by australian photographer, jacinta over at bawkbawkbawk.
Such a cool project! “Fifty and Fifty is a curated project that attempts to construct a handsome new way of looking at our country. Fifty designers, one per state, will illustrate their state motto, creating something steeped in history but completely modern and unique: a kind of designer’s atlas.”
is fab. source.
i am soo inspired by University of Georgia student, Britt Bass‘ work. It is beautiful, free and just my style. According to Brittany, “The work takes on its own life, and the subconscious of the painting and [her] own intuition mutualistically guide the process. Through layering, adding and omitting [she] explores this artistic relationship until it culminates into a whole, finished piece.” love.
i have been so busy lately it seriously doesnt make any sense. yet within my busy schedule i found the time to discover and become completely smitten with a new blog. smh. the-brick-house revolves around the renovation of a mid-century brick house in hemet, with plenty of realistic DIY’s and an endless supply of great furniture. enjoy!

oncewed is one of my favorite wedding blogs for inspiration. i wouldn’t say that im 100% percent ready to get married, but i get the itch every now and then (the beau && i are going on 5 years). this beautiful wedding has definitely got me thinking! i especially love love love the turquoise rings! see all of the photos here.
don’t mind me; just stalking the amazing portfolio of russell smith.
over the past 2 weeks, i have been the absolute worst blogger ever! balancing work and life has never been one of my strong points, but i am working on it; in addition to masterminding me && my beau’s big move back to los angeles.
stay tuned :)
words cannot describe how beautiful this room is. see more here. love.
i would love to see this one day. the silent evolution, by jason decaires taylor, is only one of many differnt underwater sculptures spread throughout the ocean.
“Taylor’s interventions explore the intricate relationships that exist between art and environment. His works become artificial reefs, attracting marine life, while offering the viewer privileged temporal encounters, as the shifting sand of the ocean floor, and the works change from moment to moment.”
i have really been into portraits lately and this one by canadian artist zoe pawlak is no exception.
are these not the coolest collages ever! sanfran artist, kelly allen has completely captured my design heart. each piece is more beautiful and surreal than the next, and wanna know a secret? these are not even collages. they are paintings!!
i was so inspired when i found this new book, by mike perry, and all of the amazing things it, that i signed my beau and i up for a screen printing class :) if you are local && interested you can find out more information here. I have always loved screen printing & the hands on quality of it, i am so excited to finally learn the technique myself.

Gotta love Keith Haring. The Arnhem Mode Biennale is a bi-annual cultural festival devoted to fashion, that runs for a month at the AzkoNobel building in Arnhem, Netherlands. This year, Artistic Director JOFF dedicated the festival to the theme of Amber, which he announced via love letter. The exhibition includes designs from 99 designers, including Prada, Ann-Sofie Back, Siki Im, BLESS, Damir Doma, Jil Sander, Margiela, Ohne Titel, and others.

a few hot swimsuits and various other items i need in my life, from my new new obsession: 80’s purple.
another piece by veilhan, currently in paris. i thought this was pretty relevant seeing as i’m watching game 1 of the nba finals, miami vs dallas.
i love these giant mobiles by xavier veilhan, they are so beautiful and somewhat peaceful and serene.
i love when i discover sources, like this beautiful rebrand of claridge’s hotel in london, designed by london based firm Construct. ive had pieces of this project saved for over a year with no idea what they were for. i love the editorial design, you can see more on their blog, and the yummy combination of mint, black & white.
a lovely sidenote: some of the renovated rooms in the hotel were designed by Diane Von Furstenburg.
ahhh new artist crush! check out more of his work here. its like beautiful,
organic, chaos. this is what my mind looks like.

i dont know why i waited to long to post this! a few months ago, Mani O’Brien, a fellow fidm alumna, contacted me about featuring my work on the school digital arts blog. Mani was super patient with me as I got all of my stuff together :) and the article turned out great! You even get a sneak peak into the June issue of Blü Magazine. Check it out here.
The only change is that I am spending the summer working with MODE Visual, and no longer work with Se-va.

lovely prints by therese sennerholt. the chocolate one is my favorite.
i will have shelves like this in my house one day.. seeing as i already have more than enough books.
while browsing refinery29 (my new favorite) i came across a tour of opening ceremony’s kate foley’s place. her home is amazing, but what really caught my eye was her eclectic collection of designer toys. foley says her boyfriend turned her on to the toy culture and that she loves displaying and contrasting them with old objects such as wood, metal, and marble works. love. i am itching to find some of these cool bearbricks now myself.
process of elimination by chad wys
The Loneliest Whale in the World. In 2004, The New York Times wrote an article about the loneliest whale in the world. Scientists have been tracking her since 1992 and they discovered the problem: She isn’t like any other baleen whale. Unlike all other whales, she doesn’t have friends. She doesn’t have a family. She doesn’t belong to any tribe, pack or gang. She doesn’t have a lover. She never had one. Her songs come in groups of two to six calls, lasting for five to six seconds each. But her voice is unlike any other baleen whale. It is unique—while the rest of her kind communicate between 12 and 25hz, she sings at 52hz. You see, that’s precisely the problem. No other whales can hear her. Every one of her desperate calls to communicate remains unanswered. Each cry ignored. And, with every lonely song, she becomes sadder and more frustrated, her notes going deeper in despair as the years go by. Just imagine that massive mammal, floating alone and singing—too big to connect with any of the beings it passes, feeling paradoxically small in the vast stretches of empty, open ocean.
“Some people have to work for it, and some people are just born with excellent taste and polish positively oozing from every pore. Jewelry designer and style curator Mimi Jung is one such lady.”
I am absolutely smitten with this house tour from refinery29. i struggled not to show every picture, you will have to go check out the original for the full set, as well as the interview.
the entire house works together, you can easily see how the palette flows from one room right into the next, reinventing itself along the way.
i am obsessed with this color palette; it reminds me of jcrew. styled by caroline van oel, and photographed by sander van den dosch, the neon colors sparkle against the stark neutral surroundings. i love the quiet simplicity of each image, i feel as if just beyond each setting there is music and action happening and the photographer just captured a brief moment..
a peek inside kerrilynn pamer‘s bohemian chic prospect heights apartment. love.
super cool posters by the silent giants. they have a huge selection for sale plus an amazing portfolio to match!
i am dying for one of these cute lambskin leather pouches! i have been seeing them all over since american apparel began selling them, but I love the idea of a handmade one from etsy! (not to mention a much wider color selection) At Rennes le Chateau shop you can get one too-
omg i am loving this guy! canadian artist darren booth has such an amazing portfolio i cannot stop looking at everything over and over. his use of color and typography is so refreshing, but kinda trendy & retro, it looks like collage as well. ahhh i am so inspired!
happiness for your walls by shanna murray.

each year the french ministry of culture and communication invites a leading artist to create a work that responds to the exceptional architectural space of the grand palais in paris. this year, indian-born artist anish kapoor created an installation inside the nave of the glass-domed hall.
while the exterior may appear to be opaque and aubergine in color, the inside, which visitors are welcome to enter, is a translucent cherry red.

hello home, i have finally found you. i am completely smitten with this town home, i found while browsing desire to inspire, tucked neatly in london. the architecture && decor is completely my style; it is a fabulous juxtaposition of classical architecture with contemporary and vintage furnishings. ahhh.
lately i have had this weird fixation on world maps, it must be linked to my desire to get out and explore the world; none the less i came across these BEAutiful “future” maps, designed by british co. the future map company. the color is stunning && i am dying to order one.. of each :)
love the piling of the bangles, charm bracelets, watch, etc. the lime stitching & pattern is great too.
these patterns and color combos are crazy!

Paintings by Alex Steckly.
photographer irina werning’s back to the future collection is fascinating. she took old home photos and recreated them. that sounds pretty basic but the results are really cool.
wow. sanfran based designer, john soat, is AMAZING! he is one of those designers that makes you sick just looking at his work because of how fantastic, detailed, and creative it truly is. i love it. you must look at his website i was tempted to post a picture of everything. enjoy.
i miss true blood.
i know that mara hoffman’s swim 2011 line debuted last summer buuut i love every piece in it! mh is one of my favorite designers, every piece is so artistic. i am going to have to splurge this summer because i cannot stop thinking about this bikini.
mara hoffman’s blog is amazing too! i wanted to repin, blog, and tumblr every picture.

dear closet: please manifest these outfits. thanks.
Beautiful couture embroidered wallpapers by Claire Cole. These are so pretty and delicate looking, I would love to see them up close.

there is something nice about browsing a tumblr that keeps with a theme. when you look at mine its like bllaaaahah because i like too many things and just blog everything i like. brown dress with white dots has a beautiful collection of warm, stark, earthy images. you have to look at the archive to really see the pattern because even though they are all pretty random images they feel like they belong together.
one of the most beautiful weddings i have seen (and i have stalked quite a few). shot at the figueroa hotel by one of my favorite photographers, elizabeth messina. i just cannot get over the bride’s dress! i love nontraditional weddings and this one just seems so effortless.
wall graphics are so popular now but they really are such an easy inexpensive way to display large scale artwork.. as long as they aren’t cheesy. blik has an amazing selection. i love these two by artist david bray.
ahh when can i get mine done! apparently this is peter lindbergh’s macbook, a gift from p diddy, engraved by artist jona cerwinske. love it.

anthropologie may 2011 catalogue. i want to jump into every one of these photos; the scenery is so beautiful. i am almost positive it was shot in india.
i finally got around to revamping my website with a bit of inspiration from one of my coworkers :) you can check it out here and let me know what you think. it isn’t 100% finished i still have some images resizing & editing but otherwise enjoy! i admit most of the projects are the same i will be updating it with my new projects in the next week or two. bon voyage.
i love this space, the new flagship store for cynthia vincent.
” ‘I SIT DOWN & PONDER’ Upon what, exactly? Maybe the recent outburst of revolution that had struck civilization. To speculate on our beliefs of social alienation and totalitarianism… I dare you to sit, maybe under an oak tree on beautiful Spring’s day my friends. Tell me what it is that you ruminate upon.”
i love this palette.
amazing packaging! Tempt Cider, a Danish brand designed by DDB Denmark, found while browsing the dieline. I wish these were sold in america! I would have a hard time throwing them away :)
i love projects like this. TRASH is a public art project for urban beautification and environmental awareness using artist-created trash bags to transform standard piles of trash into vivid sculptures of color through the participation of local business owners and residents. love it.
this is how you do a beach wedding. if you were wondering. amazing.

God I love creative people! Wendy Gold uses vintage globes to create one of a kind pieces of art. I had seen the butterfly globe passed around the internet but I never knew the source or that there were so many more! You can even order a custom made one! The creativity in people never ceases to amaze me. Wendy’s blog is pretty cool too, enjoy!

Swedish Artist Sebastian Wahl. very interesting work. i love it.
“Judith Supine describes LADYBOY significance as “the marriage of opposites in one person — comparable to the technique of collage, combining seemingly disparate images to reveal something that wasn’t previously apparent”. An intimate encounter by the artist with a ladyboy in Bangkok served as the stimulus for this exhibition.” – via myloveforyou
collage prints of mine ♥

I was browsing one of my favorite blogs when I came across this amazing French artist, Coco. Her work is so beautiful and fun!
are the shit.
i think this may be one of my favorite color sets so far.
i was busy stumbling when i came across this amazing project called Book. Basically for 36 weeks a sketchbook was sent in random order between 4 artist in Brooklyn and Belfast. The artist would keep the book for 5 days before sending it on to the next and a small portion of their design would extend onto the following page. Other than that there was no communication between the artists.
I wanna do this!!
so fun right??
…lend your ears to music, open your eyes to painting, and… stop thinking! just ask yourself whether the work has enabled you to “walk about” into a hitherto unknown world. if the answer is yes… what more do you want?
if i had to design one thing for the rest of my life.. other than magazines.. i would choose wedding invitations. i die for them. and lately people have been getting pretty creative. i have no idea how i will decide on a design for my own when i get hitched o_O !
Check out these delicious pre-made invitations from Minted!
Designer Victoria Macey created this “magical typographic pop-up book called Bodoni Bedlam.” Once again I am completely enthralled and obsessed with this and want to have one for my own. See more pictures here.
although i describe everything i really like with “i love” and “im totally obsessed” this apartment is one of those things truly deserving of the expression.
swank. conceptual magazine covers from my portfolio. I will post the spreads later. i pretty much live for publication design.
ben weller for pony step magazine.
i know this is cheating. but i was obsessed with these color boards from creature comforts. they couldn’t be any better.
amazing photographer rinze van brug. plus im obsessed with these clothes and this girl and her hair.
i stumble(d)upon this super cute blog Loveology.
i love everything about this picture. the girl, her hair, her style, the clothes, the door, these colors. yes. yes. yes.
when i am not wrapped up in indesign, photoshop, and illustrator.. i am busy having an affair with house stuff haha all things furniture, paint, books, and architecture.
while browsing minted condition I came across this FAB apartment feature from Vogue Daily. The apartment belongs to super cute couple Laura and Diego Garcia, and is filled with tons of stuff I want to make my own :) I need a new place asap!
I was browsing pinterest when I came across the blog Cocorosa. It literally took me less than 60sec to become obsessed. Check out the photos && read this snippet and you’ll see why.
“Meet Chantal, the lovely creator of the blog cocorosa. Having started her Blog in New York city writing about her style musings and her science fiction love for Galactic Battle Stars and robotics she surely likes to indulge herself in a dreamy world of silky pastels, tutu’s, glitters and bows but this urban fairy is not afraid to pair the pretty with the rough. Globe trotting ever since, going back and forth between her native Holland and New York this smiling creature wants to be free as a galactic bird.”
I die for these pictures.

Gosh this painting is beautiful!! I want to paint and be painted by this artist!
