I’m so excited to announce the start of a brand new series! My new series “Wear That Space” takes phenomenal interiors and translates the space into your wardrobe. Our spaces truly reflect the way we dress, the way we feel, so I wanted to capture that in this new series. The first space I’m featuring is designed by none other then Kelly Wearstler. Wearstler uses many graphic art pieces to offset the very simple, neutral color palette of the space. Silver, white, lighter stained floors, all give this space a beach-like quality. What I like about the space is it doesn’t scream beach house! One can feel the beach in the house in the details. The fashion reflects the space’s artwork, as well as the furniture pieces. The tops were all inspired by the art. The pants and jewelry pieces were inspired by the furniture pieces and the art. The shoes were inspired by the furniture pieces. Many of the pieces can be mixed and matched to create a look. Which piece is your favorite?
Artist Tiffany Bozic’s ”Wildlife” paintings are full of color, and beauty. The self-taught artist showed a wide variety of wildlife paintings in this series. From birds to sea creatures to the animals on dry land. The paintings would look phenomenal if printed on pillows, or even manipulated on an area rug. (ABOVE) The white birds set the tone for this piece. They’re pure and add a sense of glamour and serenity to the piece. The dark background allows the different creatures in the foreground to be visible. (BELOW 1) The birds are wonderfully colored. I absolutely love all the texture and movement that Bozic was able to capture. (BELOW 2) This piece is a marriage between the creatures on land and the creatures under the sea. I love how the dark turquoise at the bottom fades into white at the top. It looks like the sea moving into the air. (BELOW 3) You can really see the love the mother bird has for her chick. The stylized nest really adds to the piece. I love the saltwater fish at the bottom! What do you think of Bozic’s work?
The Park Lane house is a brilliant urban looking home located in Australia. The home is extremely modern. (ABOVE) What I love about the home is that it manages to bring the outside in. Even though the home itself does not look one with nature, the design and flow of the home certainly does. (BELOW 1) Around most of the home is this white brick wall. Not only does it maintain privacy, but it also adds to the overall architecture of the house. (BELOW 2) The other side of the house it very different. Wood siding have replaced the white brick walls. I personally would have wanted to keep the front and back of the home more consistent. (BELOW 3) This drawing presents a clear view of how the structure is designed. What do you think of the house?
Happy Monday, May 20, 2013, readers! I hope everyone had a fantastic weekend. Is it me or are the chunky headphones coming back into style? Lately I’ve been seeing people rocking out to some pretty cool looking headphones. The beautiful thing about these chunky music makers is that they can block out lots of street noise. When you live in NYC, these headphones come in handy, but be aware, don’t wear them and drive! I love how this fashion cautious girl styled her look. The matte black chunky headphones definitely complete the look.
How cool are these images? I can’t stop looking at them! 19 year old Hungarian photographer Flora Borsi, was curious as to what the models of some of the world’s most famous abstract art work would look like. Borsi who describes herself as being quite interested in photo-manipulation has put both her interest and talent into good work to create this series. (ABOVE) “The Corn Poppy”, those eyes are insane. From the small lips, big eyes, to the button nose, Borsi nailed it all. (BELOW 1) “Donna con Cappello Verde”, the nose looks perfect. The clothes look great as do the small shoulders. I love the ears, clearly not the same height. (BELOW 2) “Portrait of a Polish Woman”, well, the giraffe neck looks good! She kind of looks like she came straight out of a Tim Burton movie! (BELOW 3) “Gelber Narrenhut”, what I love about this painting is all the shadow around the eyes and on the cheek. I feel like this is missing from the real person. The fortune cookie on the head is pretty fun! Interested in buying Borsi’s prints? What do you think of the series?
Happy Tuesday, May 14, 2013, readers! I hope everyone had a fantastic weekend. This weekend was pretty hectic for me, and as a result I needed to take Monday off to get myself together! Sometimes I just wish life would move at a more reasonable pace. I managed to escape Saturday evening to the movie theater with a few friends to watch the “The Great Gatsby”. When I saw this photograph I couldn’t help but to think about the movie. The classic 1920s stole wrap, circular sunglasses, and dress all have that Gatsby vibe. CLICK FOR FULL POST
I really love the work of artist Paul Octavious. He has a cool spin on his photography and various other projects. For today’s post, I wanted to share a quick, 60 second clip that Octavious created, in which he experimented with the color Indigo. In the clip you’ll notice, the color being sucked into a glass tube, ultimately dying a cup Indigo. It’s pretty cool! What do you think of the clip?
