Here's the first of new series called "currently loving..." in which various artists, designers, and other creative types have volunteered to share an image of something {or things} they're currently loving...it may be something of their own creation or a mix of items found or made by others. Either way, see a peak into their thought processes and inspirations...enjoy!

CURRENTLY LOVING...
Here's the Lotus Cake, inspired by what I am currently loving...India, lotus flowers, summer sunsets, flamingo pink and hot orange together... inside is organic cake, flavored with orange blossom syrup, and vanilla whipped buttercream, almost a chic version of a creamsicle!

black feels right again...

For some reason over the past year, I've been anti-black clothing...no black tops or pants, only in staples like shoes or coats. All of a sudden, I'm feeling black again...and love it mixed with colors for summer. Check out these great pairings of black with various use of color from Mona & Holly...

Sivan Lewin

I've always been a fan of photographer Sivan Lewin' work and was just reminded of it today via Hi+Low. Sivan has an amazing client list including Wallpaper, World of Interiors, Martha Stewart, Kate Spade, Anthropologie, and more...but what I especially loved seeing on her website is her personal work. It's so wonderful to see how a person's personal aesthetic translates in work they creative for themselves as well as work created for others...
