My newest series “A Week in the City” takes you to some of the best places to travel to, where to stay, eat, and what to pack. The Los Angeles area of California is one of the most beautiful places in the world. From the beautiful, warm weather to the many eclectic places to stay and dine, it’s a place that has attracted many people and will continue to do so. (ABOVE) I fell in love with this vintage photograph of cars driving in L.A. From the palm trees in the background, to the classic cars in the foreground, it embodies the California lifestyle.
Romanian based photographer, Dan Cretu’s, fruit and vegetables sculptures are the perfect balance of fun, creative, and somewhat tasty looking. Due to the nature of the materials, Cretu had a maximum of four hours to assemble and photograph each object before it started to brown. I love Cretu’s imagination! (ABOVE) “Pepper Chopper” A pepper, lime, what do you see?
The Conan house is designed by architects Moon Hoon in Bangdong, South Korea. Moon Hoon architects envisioned “a sculptural object, unhindered by its neighbors, standing rather conspicuously”. The result is a stunning home that looks like nothing seen before. (ABOVE) The front door of the house is located at the structures corner. The bright red color screams attention. If it were not for the color, one would get confused as to wear the front door is.
Happy Tuesday, November 5, 2013, readers! Can you believe that we are already in November?! I was browsing through countless Tumblr pages over the weekend and came across this street style photograph. I call it: I just want to wear whatever the hell I feel like wearing, deal with it! Though I like talking about thelatest trends and what’s hot at the moment on the blog, I love the idea of not always following the trends, and wearing whatever you want to. Or using the latest trends in a different and exciting way to put together your look. So when you step outside today ask yourself: Am I being me?
How great are these Golden Goose Sneakers? What I love most about these sneakers is the color. A bright metallic fuchsia pair of kicks to bright up your look. They’re the perfect piece to wear to work with a great blazer and t-shirt or just for your day to day activities. These sneakers have been spotted on many celebrities such as Hilary Duff, Mandy Moore, and a few others. What do you think of the sneakers? Would you wear them?
Why I Love This Space:I love this space’s brick tile walls, stainless steel hardware, and use of wood
This kitchen is the perfect mix of warmth and modern. Often times, a modern space can feel cold and uninviting. By using wood for the kitchen island, and floors, the kitchen feels inviting. The stainless steel hardware is my favorite element in this space. The handles have a noticeable weight to them, and the light bounces beautifully off them. Rather than having a generic tiled backdrop and upper cabinets, the designer of this space used a brick tile and forwent the upper cabinets. This aids in the modernity of the space. Do you like the space? You can add as little or as much to your space as you want. Don’t follow rules, just do.
Happy Monday, October 28, 2013, readers! I hope everyone had a fantastic weekend. This weekend I found myself browsing the web for extreme homes. From homes built literally into the mountains to homes with the most unusual geometry. What I learned from this fun half hour of extreme home searching is: any house can be built. This phenomenal house is built right into the mountains. What I like about this house is that it’s not made of stone, but wood. This juxtaposition creates a big statement.
The temperatures are starting to drop in the Big Apple, and so the coat craze has begun! Whether it be graphic print coat from Clover Canyon or something cool and retro inspired from up and coming designer Antipodium, each fall/winter season there are so many designers that put a smile on my face with their unique statement coats. So what are the biggest coat trends of the season you ask? Well, I’ve been spotting a lot of plaid inspired coats, a modern take on a classic trench coat, beige coats with a classic cut, and bright colored—almost spring colored coats. (ABOVE) I love the layering, and print/style mixing that is going on here. A pair of sneakers, paired with a retro plaid coat, and pair of overalls. How very geek, sporty chic!
