Space of the Week: This lovely shot, taken by Emily Johnston, is from an event that WorkOf put together at 61 Local last Thursday. The sofa is by Desiron, the artwork on the wall is from Calico Wallpaper, and the planters are by Farrah Sit. Such a talented group of designers – I feel very lucky to be included and wish I could have attended the event!
And a few things from around the web…
A new issue of Matchbook and Rue! I was thrilled to see The Grid Shibori pillow on page 15 of Matchbook.
A colorful southern home featuring out Lattice Shibori Pillows.
A giveaway not to miss.
An animated drawing by my talented friend Stacie.
I’m thinking I need to plan to meet friends for drinks at this hotel, as it keeps popping up in conversations.
Downton Abbey costumes.
Make your own maple almond butter!
Chanel’s grocery store.
This isn’t an online read, but it’s the best book I’ve read in a while.
On that note, an online book club.
Indre Rockefeller’s home.
#DSArt Challenge – I’m going to snap some things from around our apartment, and can’t wait to see what others post!
March is here, and I always think of it as the last month of winter as by the end of it you can start to see the hope of spring…although this year I wouldn’t be surprised if we had another snowfall in April! This month I’ve got a lot to look forward to. There’s daylight savings time which means it won’t be dark so early! That’s a big one in my opinion. It’s also my husband’s birthday, and my parents are coming for a visit at the end of the month. I’m also really looking forward to launching the new spring collection on March 25th! This will be one year from my first collection. It’s been a crazy year, and I have to remember to look back on all of this and see how far I’ve come and not all of the things still to do. What are you looking forward to this month?
February is a short month, but we sure have had a lot of snow! I’m all about trying to stay warm while we wait for spring to come. What about you?
These pillow sketches have me thinking about where I want the next collection to go.
This tea has become a staple.
These flowers were a lovely surprise from my husband.
These slippers have been keeping my feet warm.
This lip balm has become my favorite! It’s much richer than my previous go-to (rosebud salve) and much needed this time of year.
These rocks and shells may be the beginning of my color palette for Fall 2014.
Space of the Week: This room with it’s luxurious sofa and Brice Marden prints has me wanting to curl up and read a book. The photo is actually from this book, which is going on my wish list.
Just a few things from the web this week…
Amanda Brook’s home on The Selby.
Color with restraint. We completely agree that hand printed pillows are a great way to add interest.
Salary requirements for home ownership…although I’d really like to know where they are finding these ‘average homes’ in NYC for under 400k? I’m rather skeptical. Maybe we should move to Atlanta. I honestly do love where we live, but I don’t know if we’d ever be able to afford to actually buy anything around here…and also have no idea where we would move that we’d like as much.
10 cute poufs has me thinking about how I want to make poufs once the fabric by the yard line is up and running.
Loved seeing Love Dart on Miss Moss! Sonia and I met at a Remodelista pop-up over the holidays and she’s not only talented, but so nice.
Furbish’s favorite places to eat in NYC. I’ve actually only eaten at 3 of these spots! Always something new to try in New York.
I’d love a nook like this one.
I’m thinking this is the perfect spring outfit…and this one too. I’m thinking lots of white!
Furbish did a pop-up with Michelle Armas and there are just a few pieces left! I’m loving this one.
As the daughter or restaurant owners I can’t help but want to see this succeed!
Alyson Fox. Isn’t her house a dream?
These moving boxes sound like a great idea.
If I had money to burn.
