Pink Friday

I actually featured the work of this artist, Lisa Golightly, in yesterday's post as well. You can buy this print right here. Have a great weekend!

It gets dark

 Let's not discount the power of black and white. 1 / 2 / 3 (<--Pssst. That last one's a print you can buy!)

Goodbye, Summer


I say, as it hits 90. It's been a hot summer all around, I'm fairly certain. And while technically it won't be over till past the middle of next month (but who's counting?), the kids are back in school, and we are getting a few (read: one) chilly days here and there. It's fall, y'all, so here are a few transitional sweaters (wear 'em with shorts while you still can!): 1 / 2 / 3 / 4

Wreaths

I've actually blogged about the work of Denise Nestor in the past, but with this new series of wreath illustrations, I just couldn't help but re-visit the artist.





And I just love blush tone of the exhibition poster below:

Cardboard Cities



Oh, you should know by now, I love collages. Here are some by Laura Redburn of Cardboard CitiesAaaand, you can buy them as prints, right here.

Pink Friday

Although it might as well be Pink Weekend, because this one's a biggie, and it's gorgeous. Feast your eyes on Surrounded Islands, a huge art installation completed in 1983 in Biscayne Bay by artistic duo, Christo and Jeanne-Claude. Seriously, those prep sketches are so pretty I don't know what to do with myself. Even if you're familiar with the work, witness it again from conception to realization:

Stumped


The inside of the Devis-Purdy home, located in Los Feliz, CA, is certainly something worth ogling, but I was more interested in the outdoor area with its inventive use of tree "slices" as pavers, and yes, even furniture. More photos right here.

The Slanted Door

I'm obsessed with the wit and simplicity of this identity set design studio, Manual did for San Francisco restaurant, The Slanted Door.

Matchpoint

Krista Charles makes these Matchbook Landscapes by finding the businesses on Google Maps, then draws a pencil sketch of what she finds on the inside flap. These tiny treasures sure are charming!

Brothers

When Leo first met Louie, I thought the two of them couldn't be more different. And while that's still very true, at the end of the day, they're two sides of the same sandwich-loving coin. (via my Instagram)

(These were taken on two different days, weeks apart. Obviously on one of those days, my focaccia was burnt. *sighs* I love paninis.)

Pink Friday

A sweet adornment from Signe Sugar. Have a great weekend.

New Old Favorites


Revisiting some works from Beth Hoeckel today, whose work I've posted about before. Something a bit more colorful this time (but just as collage-y, because you know I can't help it).

Nice Gesture


Check out these gesture drawings and paintings by artist, Marina M. Gestural drawing is by far my favorite style of illustration. It captures movement and feeling like no other.

That one right up there to the right reminds me of this one art class I took in college. The professor would have us sit outside by the duck pond and just draw and draw and draw...


This quick and relaxed style is great for both nature drawing and people watching, as evidenced by these gorgeous works.

Under the sheets



For some reason I've been in a duvet-purchasing/researching mood. I love geometric prints and patterns for bedding and have been on a search for the perfect one for a while. Here's a few finds. (1 / 2 / 3)

Another thing I look for aside from pattern is texture. Especially if you've got one of those all white rooms, that texture adds a bit of warmth. Plus, I've got two dogs that shed, so anything that isn't smooth or overly plain or solid helps camouflage the fuzzies. (Pinned: 1 / 2 / 3 / 4)

Pink Friday

This is one of those "gotta have it" Pink Friday moments. Get this print by Les Zigouis right here.

Horne

I just discovered this home decor and accessory store, Horne this week, and I'm loving all the minimal brights. Check 'em out:

A common thread

Mixed media's always had a place in my heart, especially works involving thread (exhibit A, BC, and D). Something about the dueling textures, and my love for fabric and thread in general, really makes them hit the spot. Take these pieces by Izziyana Suhaimi for example. Stunning.

Pinnin' Like a Villain Pt. 2

I've just really been liking my Pinterest boards lately. So allow me to self-promote here a little bit. (Pinnin' Part 1 from forever ago right here.)

1 / 2 / 3 / 4 / 5 / 6 / 7 / 8

Lights

I was so taken upon discovering the work from Marco Stefanelli's Brecce Collection, scrap wood pieces illuminated from within by cast resin embedded with LEDs. My first thought was, "How amazing would these be as outdoor furniture and lighting?" Specifically, I'm imagining a wide open space littered with these glowing branches. And it's lovely.

Two things I love

Collages and fashion. I've been slow clapping a lot this week. This time for Anna Duthie.
