crafted: roll & hill

i have been really impressed by the designers for roll & hill.  each of them artists in their own right, the running theme of their work seems to be richness of material, and impecable craft.  the entire collection gestures to nostalgia for the past while maintaining a streamlined edginess of futuristic design.  each fixture is timeless and almost like a little piece of jewelry for the interior.



backyard living

it's that time of year, the yard is starting to look good, the sun is out and the neighbors are firing up the grill.  sometimes you just need a couple new items to jumpstart your own little back-yard oasis.  i tend to go for a light-colored chaise that won't fade or get too hot, and then throw in some little accents like tinted lanterns, bright cushions and a fun umbrella.


inspired space

inspired by yesterdays post, i thought i'd put together a little shopping list of my own to get that slimmed-down parisian style.  i think the key is to look for simple shapes and to find decorative objects that can stand to be the center of attention.  trust me, this is  not always easy.


eye on: sarah lavoine

described in the new york times as a designer of "perfectly imperfect interiors".  the spaces lavoine creates are rich in contrasts, at times bare bone simple, and they are all deeply sophisticated.  she manages to create sleek, edgy interiors that welcome life and the chaos that happens along with it.  oh, and she's incredibly beautiful herself.

pattern me pretty

patterns abound these days, from the runway to runners, pillows, poufs, table linens...they're everywhere.  and there are so many beautiful ones to choose from whether your taste runs wild or a bit more refined.  i like to balance big bold florals with tone on tone geometry or vice versa - a great way to brighten up for spring.
