I really enjoyed Clare Vivier’s studio tour and interview with One Kings Lane. Her Los Angeles work space is just as you would expect it to be: clean, inspiring, and relaxed. My favorite Q & A? What are you thinking about when designing a bag? I’m thinking: Is someone going to want to wear this in five or ten years, is someone’s daughter going to want to carry her mom’s bag after 20 years?
I am constantly on the lookout for new decor inspiration, but since we are days away from moving into our new home, I have been gathering photos left and right. This interior project from SWOON was just what I wanted to see. It immediately made its way to the top of the stack. The space feels full and textural, but still weightless. I love the wallpapered alcove in the dining room, the inclusion of sculpture and mobiles, and how the color palette runs throughout the entire house.
Parisian atelier Antoinette Poisson has teamed up with John Derian Co. to create some pretty exceptional goods. Known for their hand blocked and painted papers (think Indienne florals and striking geometric motifs) Derian will be bringing the trio’s original prints, papers, textiles and printed pillows to his Manhattan home furnishings shop later this June. Ive got my fingers crossed for online availability. Click through for a sneak peek.
From the portfolio to the branding, Michelle Smith of Studio MRS has had my attention from the start. I always got terribly excited if I caught a glimpse of a new project online. But her most recent work on her personal apartment, featured by One Kings Lane, really got me to girl crush level. I took notes on the blue velvet chairs, the great use of space, and the mix in of mid-century pieces with traditional accents.
It is usually the simple things that catch my attention. The ones that ultimately remind you that construction and material are always key. This Italian made tote by Alice D. seems to be one of those items… totally worth tapping that girl on the shoulder in Starbucks to find out who made it and where you can get one. Whether you become best friends after that is up to you.
