designers + artists + stylists

The Architect’s Brother

I picked up this amazing photography book by Robert ParkeHarrison at Tail of the Yak yesterday. I fell instantly in love with these beautiful photos. So so so wonderful. The book is on sale at Amazon for a sizable discount than what I paid for it. This would make a very special present for someone.

On a sidenote: While reading up on Mr. ParkeHarrison I saw that he came to my University to lecture in 2003 while I was a student there. So maddening! I wish I could have heard him speak.



Umbrellas

I am in love with this stunning art installation by Konstantin Grcic in Milan, Italy. I wonder if I could recreate the effect for a party?

Hip Hip Hooray for Paul

Paul just got a big fat {well deserved} promotion at work. And we just received word he was accepted to paint at the prestigious Sonoma Plein Air Festival this fall. Hooray for Paul.

Miles Redd

I first saw Miles Redd‘s work in Domino. But I recently came across his portfolio online. Such beautiful things. It really took my breath away. If I could hire any designer to decorate my house I would choose him.



Catherine Weitzman

Catherine Weitzman jewelry is so pretty. I love almost everything on her site. The price points aren’t super expensive. It is what I would expect to pay for a special piece of jewelry.
