Today I stumbled across Shinola’s BEAUTIFUL December inspiration board on Pinterest and it literally stopped me in my tracks. I’m totally in love with the green + neutral color palette. Also love the “greens, greys + gifting” tagline. This is how you design an elevated Holiday experience! I just want to LIVE in these photos. Over the next few days I’m going to share some holiday inspiration from some of my favorite brands, so get into the holiday spirit, and get into Shinola!

How great are these images?? I’ll take one of everything. If you’re in NYC, check out their beautiful store in NYC’s Tribeca neighborhood (dangerously close to my office) or check them out online.

As we’re all trapped in winter’s cold embrace for (hopefully) just a few more weeks, I thought we could take another look at my favorite hue, blue.

“What good is the warmth of summer, without the cold of winter to give it sweetness.”
― John Steinbeck, Travels with Charley: In Search of America

Here’s hoping spring and summer come soon!

Celine-SpringSummer-2014-Ad-Campaign-2

Even though we’re stuck in the middle of the winter doldrums, it’s time to think about Spring and Summer (in the fashion world that is). Recently I stumbled across two new ad campaigns that bring welcome color and life to the otherwise dull winter world we’re used to seeing now. The first is Celine’s Spring/Summer 2014 campaign, photographed by Juergen Teller featuring Canadian model Daria Werbowy. I love the color and movement of these ads, so playful and fun. These are much more expressive and less “minimal” than Celine’s previous campaigns. Next up are the Spring/Summer 2014 Prada ads. So much color and pattern, I’m a bit obsessed. My new-found Prada obsession might also be related to my latest shoe purchase (see here). Couldn’t help myself. So get into these new Spring/Summer looks while we await the March fashion mags and warmer Spring weather. Get into it.

Red: the colour of love, passion, sex, Valentine’s Day and Dior lipstick, just to name a few. It’s been a while since I did one of my color posts, so for my first post of 2014, what could be more fitting than to ring in the new year with the colour of love? I also thought love was an appropriate theme b/c I’m 5 followers away from 2,500 followers on Pinterest! So I wanted to show some love for that! Also lots of love and appreciation goes out to anyone that read, scrolled or stumbled across my blog in the last year, I had my best year yet! So get into all the love, and all the red. And Happy New Year !!

geoff-mcfetridge-paintings-7

A few weeks ago I discovered the work of LA-based designer and illustrator Geoff McFetridge. After design school, McFetridge art directed the Beastie Boys’ magazine Grand Royal before starting his own studio, Champion Graphics. Recently his work was featured on t-shirts and Jack Spade’s blog. What I really love Geoff’s work is how graphic and abstract it is. His paintings are simple and minimal in form, but there’s a great sense of design in each. He also has a great sense of color. But above all, you easily see his sense of humor and wit. Nothing I love more than a designer that doesn’t take himself too seriously. How refreshing! Weeks ago, a friend alerted me that Lonny Magazine featured a profile of Jonathen Adler & Simon Doonan’s Manhattan apartment in their September 2013 issue, and to my great surprise, guess who’s work Adler is displaying in his living room? Geoff McFetridge! Great choice!

Happy (pink) Friday y’all. Continuing in my color series of posts, I wanted to devote today to pink. While this colour isn’t my favorite (this is), there’s something about pink you can’t help but love. If you enjoy this series of posts, check out my Color Board on Pinterest. Get into it, and happy Friday!

Geometric_Two_4

Exciting news! The fine folks at Kapitza studio in the UK are at it again. You may remember, this past February I blogged about Kapitza’s first Geometric Pattern book and the beautiful digital textiles that fill its pages. Sadly I was never able to get my hands on a copy (welp!), but now you’re in luck. The duo behind Kapitza (sisters Nicole and Petra Kapitza) started a Kickstarter project to fund printing this second volume. So here’s your chance to own one for yourself. There’s also cool goodies that come with supporting this project like tote bags, prints, signed copies, etc – so check it out. I’m particularly excited about the printer test sheets. I think this is SUCH a good idea. Saturdays Surf NYC sold limited edition test sheets of their latest magazine. There’s something cool about the printer marks and seeing the book spreads laid out on a flat sheet. Must be the graphic designer in me. So if you’re a lover of color and pattern like me, head over to Kickstarter now to get Geometric Two for yourself! Get into it.

How cool do these look (page spreads above).
Keep in mind these are all “pattern fonts,” instead of using letters within a font on the computer, Kapitza created patterns with each character, or parts of a pattern (like shapes) where each letter would normally be, and manipulated the colors to create the patterns you see above. I have abolutley NO idea how they do it, but what a great idea!

Again, check out their Kickstarter project here.
