Carpet Diem

They say if you chase two rabbits, they both get away, but as an artist, there is a particular discomfort in being confined. Being singly labeled a wardrobe stylist or interior designer never quite fit into my desire to work in multiple disciplines...nor did it reflect my ability, education or body of work. Succumbing to one label also seemed to limit the potential of my business, which contradicted the ideas so thoroughly instilled by business school. With the hope of encouraging professional cross pollination, we will regularly salute designers that dare to take a leap of faith into uncharted territory.

So, as I observe the market, it is no surprise that an increasing number of companies are looking to crossover into new areas. The skills required to be exceptional in fashion design don't always translate to home furnishings, but these houses have translated their unique aesthetic to home furnishings, particularly luxurious carpets, wonderfully. Here's to seizing a sizable opportunity and building a solid (though soft) foundation in a new industry!

Artful Home: For Sport

Ernie Barnes' dynamic painting, Olympic Finish, is a delightful view of a moment during world's premier sporting event generates.  Each subject contributes something interesting to the piece, and we find an apparent simplicity in the midst of all of the brush strokes, colors, and characters.  In anticipation of the season shift and the upcoming Summer Games (London 2012), we are highlighting some colorful and kinetic, yet accessible pieces for a chic summer lounge.

Photo LA

Stopped by Photo LA today and fell in LOVE! I know Christmas just passed, but I want to put in my early holiday bid for prints from the Christian Dior and photographer Quinten Shih Stranger in a Glass Box and Dreamers series.  Shot immediately after a Dior runway show in Paris, the images are amazingly striking and speak to my interests in fashion, travel, architecture, culture, color, pattern, and the art in nonconformity.  Art Lexing ( exhibited pieces from the collection among a sea of galleries, and these were immediate standouts.  Photo LA is at the Santa Monica Civic Auditorium through January 16th.  Stop by and see what catches your eye.

Hello 2012

Every year I say I am really going to blog this year....and once again, that task is on my list for 2012. Content is king, and I have a new appreciation, a renewed interest, and a real commitment to providing stylish content that is congruent with my philosophy on living. Granny always said, "Life is too short to dance with an ugly man," and my team and I are taking every opportunity to live and work with purpose, efficiency and adding value to the visual landscape in mind. Follow us on our crusade to expose items, issues and ideas of beauty.

Happy New Year!!!!!
