Love Your Space

Friday, October 18th, 2013

At the creative agency where I’m a partner and creative director, I’ve had the opportunity to work with the lovely people at Art.com and collaborate with an incredibly talented crew of individuals. Character has been designing, art directing and working with Art.com for a year now, creating their direct mailer and concepting their lifestyle imagery. It’s work I’m very proud of and I’ve been eager to share.

Art.com offers the world’s largest collection of art, including original pieces, limited edition prints, and hand-embellished canvases — art to help you love your space.

Puppy Love

Wednesday, October 16th, 2013

I recently discovered Cloud 7, a Berlin-based company offering stylish and contemporary dog accessories. Although I’d like to claim my fixation with the site is a result of the thoughtfully and tastefully designed pet products {I really want to get little Wally one of the travel beds}, I have to admit that the real reason I created this post was all the cute pup photos Cloud 7 has in their testimonial section. Doggie approved products — what’s not to love?

Read about about Cloud 7’s foundation and philosophy based on the core principles of eco-friendliness and fair trade online.

// 1 / Photographer Nick Knight’s Flora series includes large-format photographs of elegant floral arrangements inspired by paintings from the Baroque period. By exposing the prints to various combinations of heat, chemical and water treatments during the printing process, the photographer interjects each piece with a haunting, painterly flair // 2 / Acne’s Nova shoe is a 50’s inspired stiletto pump with a similarly painterly flower print.

Future Classic

Wednesday, July 10th, 2013

Reminiscent of the 209 Thonet chair and infused with classic 1950’s modern aesthetic, The Knot Chair is composed of simple materials — ply, solid beechwood, and paper cord. Japanese designer Tatsuo Kuroda, who created the chair for Normann Copenhagen, was “inspired by Danish design classics in which function and aesthetics come together.” { See more about The Knot Chair and the designer’s inspiration online at Normann Copenhagen | To learn more about Tatsuo Kuroda, visit the designer’s website }

Take a Dip {in the Pink}

Friday, March 1st, 2013

For reasons that escape me, I am currently drawn to soft, pretty pink — especially when used in an ombre/dip dyed treatment. {1/ A party give away as simple as store bought candies are made special when wrapped in custom printed paper and tied with string. Photograph by Jane Cameron for Fete Press. // 2/ Color dipped store bought marshmallows! So fun and pretty … why didn’t I think of that first? Well, because Idlewife did. Imagine these pretties with chocolate dip and homemade graham crackers for extra special s’mores. // 3/ This lovely hand blown glass lamp by Studio WM has a subtle gradient. // 4/ Another great gift wrapping idea from Fete Press.}

Cozy Weekend

Friday, October 12th, 2012

After the rash of extremely sunny weather, we’ve started to see a change in season this last week. As much as I hate to see the days get shorter, I’m looking forward to cozy fall clothing. Oh, as well as the steaming soy latte drinks and an occasional treat of affogato. {Image sources: 1/2/3}

Have a great Friday and a cozy weekend!
