I’m sort of beside myself with this collaboration between two of my favorites – POKETO and Lisa Congdon! Lisa’s bright, geometric style lends itself perfectly to these linen tea towels that will only get softer with use. Choose from a pyramids or herringbone pattern in two color palettes. (I can’t help but think how fantastic one of these would be wrapped around a summer hostess gift!)
01/ This large-scale geometric projection in Paris is stunning.
02/ A chandelier that projects tree shadows!
03/ Epcot’s Spaceship Earth turned into an animated Mike Wazowski to promote new film.
04/ Vertigo-inducing POV footage of the spire being raised at One World Trade Center.
05/ The prettiest ad for funeral home services ever.
06/ A beautiful shimmering chain-link fence installation.
07/ Photographer Jaime Moore took photos of her daughter dresses as five historical women.
08/ Who knew cross-sections of food could be so interesting??
09/ Here is Today puts time in perspective.
10/ When a real dog is too much, Invisible Dogs in Poland is juuust right.

As I was hurrying down the concourse to my gate at LAX last Wednesday, I scurried past a series of Shizu Saldamando‘s framed art. At first glance it looked to be pen on an old bed sheet and much to my delight it was just that! I snapped a few photos (quickly) including one of the artist’s name and looked her up as soon as I got home. 18 With a Bullet isn’t the exact installation I spied, but the same style and feel. So lovely.
I’ve been having a major love affair with surface pattern, and the latest target of my affections is designer Jane Farnham. Jane uses a combination of doodles and computer illustration to create her lively works. Her inspiration comes from nature, old china and fabrics as well as trips to charity shops, antique markets and the local park. Jane’s available for freelance projects or you can pick up a piece in her Society6 shop!
01/ The Dancing Plague of 1518 illustrates famous moves from TV and film.
02/ Historical figures get a 21st century makeover.
03/ One thousand bioluminescent leaves set afloat in Puerto Rico.
04/ Love this kicky (no pun intended!) installation of colorful shoes and legs!
05/ A beautiful lunar eclipse over Hungary.
06/ Kitchen Portraits, the opposite of clean photo-styling.
07/ You know, just a Chesterfield Park Bench.
08/ A functional wooden record.
09/ Know what these concrete arrows in the middle of the desert are for?
10/ Spied this nautical rope installation in Madison Square Park a few weeks back.
Paper collages are some of my favorite art, probably because I’ve always thought of it as the form I’d most like to create myself. The work of David Adey is so intricate and well thought out. He begins each piece with fashion magazines and Google images, after that it’s a flurry of laser cuts, craft punches, foam core, and straight pins all leading to the beautiful finish line.

Loving these energetic colorful prints and cards from Dewey Howard! The neons, neutrals, and darks play so nicely with one other and would brighten up white walls quite nicely.
01/ The Clip Bag.
02/ Disney’s Sloth Princesses.
03/ You’re Officially Awesome!
04/ The power of reading. Literally.
05/ I never thought I wanted a swimming pool. Until now.
06/ Petheadz – an Instagram series of pets and their owners.
07/ The most minimalist playing cards ever.
08/ Leather suitcase furniture, yup it’s a thing.

10/ Red SOLO cups go fancy!
