a pinch of color... 30 Jun 2010


Since I'm on a solid color kick today, I had to share these gorgeous {and eco-friendly} pieces by LA-based Popomomo. In addition to the easy-to-wear {yet feminine} shapes, I'm loving the flash of color in the back seams and plackets. It's like finding a little surprise when turning the corner...

primary baubles... 30 Jun 2010


I've spent the last three days in San Francisco working on a short film for my book, Creative Inc., with Meg Ilasco coming out soon. We used a lot of primary colors in the wardrobe and the props so I'm totally feeling these new primary-colored summer necklaces by Elva Fields.

{highlights} dwell on design... 29 Jun 2010




Our "this & that" contributor, Bekka Palmer, took a trip to LA's Dwell on Design this past weekend to scope out the goods...here are her favorites from the show!

I had a great time at Dwell on Design this past weekend exploring the newest collections from some of my favorite home decor designers. I loved the UV coated boxes from Parvez Taj. With bright geometric patterns, the boxes are made for inside and out {top row}. Wallter introduced new planters at the show which come in three forms: wall mounted, hanging, or on a post and fit indoor succulents perfectly {2nd row, right}. The Dwell for Heath Ceramics tiles were even better in person {bottom row}. Available in three shapes with infinite pattern possibilities, the interactive table allowed everyone to experiment in pattern-making. Finally, the most stunning part of the trade show, by far, was the Dwell Outdoors section {2nd row, left} tucked away in the back of the LA Convention center...the hanging succulents felt like being in an indoor jungle!

wallpapering a rental... 29 Jun 2010


I read this great tip in the current issue of Lonny Magazine about how to install wallpaper in a rental. I am curious if anyone has tried this or has had success with other methods of using wallpaper without permanently attaching it? With my Oh Joy wallpaper collection launching in a couple months, I've got to figure out a way to finally use some wallpaper! I'll be sure to post the results of my project, too...!
