The Beach

Hey Internet! If you are in the Bay Area I wanted to tell you about the art show where Paul is showing his recent works. The opening reception is this Friday, July 12, 2013 from 6pm-9pm at Incline Gallery 766 Valencia St, San Francisco. The pieces are mostly large scale modern beach paintings. I took a peek at them in the studio yesterday and I’m so excited for everyone to see them. The reception will have drinks and hors d’oeuvres and we’ll be there to meet everyone. The show will also be open that weekend July 13 & 14 from 11am to 6pm. Please stop by if you are around!

Poppin

Have you heard of Poppin? They’re an awesome company that makes colorful and modern office products. Having worked in a cubicle, I know that most workspaces can be boring. So I love the idea of adding a little style to the spot where you spend most of the day. The Poppin website definitely has me daydreaming about giving our studio a makeover. But, I can’t decide whether I’d want to stick with a theme (like Oh Happy Day yellow) or mix and match a color palette. What do you think? Right now, Poppin is offering Oh Happy Day readers a $10 off all orders of $40+ with the code: OHHAPPYDAY. Use it before it expires on 7/5!

Inspiration No. 24

For the past few weeks, I’ve been brainstorming simple updates I can make to my house to keep it feeling fresh. One of my favorite websites to visit for inspiration is Fab. I love that everything feels so modern and colorful, and I can easily get lost in their Furniture, Home, and Art pages. Some of my favorite items right now are below. Which one do you like best?

A. Plastic Color Map B. Barbosa Dining Chair C. Birdcage Lamp D. Vintage Kantha Quilt E. Eames Elephant F. iPhone 4 Alarm Clock Dock G. Striped Hamper

Father’s Day Commission Project

I’m excited to announce another Commission Project just in time for Father’s Day. The Commission Project works like this: purchase a painting here and choose your frame color, send in a photo by Wednesday May 15th, then wait by your mailbox. A finished painting by Paul Ferney, framed and ready to hang will be shipped by June 10th. These make really great gifts! Here are some of my favorite pictures below. There are a very limited number of spots this time (half sold out in the first hour.) Updated: This round is sold out but if you want to be the first to hear about this in the future sign up for the email list right here.

Geometric Party Installation

A few years ago when we were living in Paris I saw some really amazing window displays and I’ve always wanted to make some party decorations inspired by them. Last week we gave it a go and loved how they turned out. This geometric installation would be so awesome hanging above tables for a wedding or in a large loft space. They are so elegant and beautiful. They would even make a really great photobooth backdrop. The best part: they are really inexpensive and simple to make and have such a big impact. I kind of want to make one to keep in my office above my desk. See full instructions below.
