I saw this and thought, what a great way to style your own home while making an ode to art. The piece was created for Saturday In Design by Elixir Design and Dream Interiors. Each origami butterfly in the circular path represents a dream in various stages-the emergence of an idea to the idea being in transit and then taking flight.

One of my favorite ways to design a space is to subtly blur and define it through layers of screening. Here are some recent ideas I’ve discovered for a current project that play with soft and hard materials and varying levels of transparency. They all provide the feeling of privacy or separation while maintaining a visual connection to the overall space…they’re also fun and playful and invite people to take a closer look!

Building off our post from last Friday, today we highlight the color orange again in homage to summer…which, as I gaze out the window at a blue-skied and sunny morning, seems to be off to a great start.

Heath Ceramics latest seasonal collection is inspired by the warmth of summer, featuring soft hues of orange in an array of elegant and minimal shapes. Each piece is beautiful on its own or as a set to adorn the table of your next outdoor dinner party. Collection is available through October.

IKEA has not only created great advertising campaigns via photographers and stylists, but beautiful pieces of art; and this one is no less cool. In their follow up to a 2010 hit campaign, ‘Visual Recipes’, photographer, Carl Kleiner and stylist Evelina Bratell, teamed up to bring everyday kitchen items to life in a brilliant and visually stunning way.

I was driving past Mignonne in Berkeley a few weeks ago and these brightly decorated windows caught my eye. How fun. Mignonne is always coming up with inspiring fun ideas for the windows. All of these windows are done with tape and streamers (with the exception of the painted furniture) by Rebekah Carey McNal of A&B Creative. What a great way to attract attention to passers-by and encourage customers who love a fun, edgy vibe to pop on in. It reminds me of LA-based Megan Geckler‘s work who we’ve featured here before.


If Mignonne sounds familiar, we’ve mentioned this store before as a partner in crime with our Sunday Brunch and Tilt Wedding Fair.

At LS we pull inspiration for our events from anything and everything, especially art. Martin Pfeifle’s commentary on space and color translate very easily into an event setting, if you look hard enough. I love the colored paper hanging from the ceiling as a potential backdrop or partition. And, I’m a big fan of this pink spacial field turning into a table with one huge hit of color.

One of our favorite designers for events is none other than David Stark. David works in a world free of constraints and expectations. Here, he hired to create the mood for an evening gala called ART NEXT for the American Friends of the Israel Museum. The logo for NEXT was transformed as a huge installation piece hanging from the ceiling. Created of welded steel, florescent flagging tape dramatically draped from all points along the type. The effect, especially when the light hits it, is radiating and dynamic.

I’m totally loving textile artist Amanda McCavour Spirograph-like disks of yarn. She weaves these pieces of yarn onto a water-soluble fabric that melts away and leaves a bowl like shell form. Accumulation is an installation at Toronto’s Gladstone Hotel Cafe. These disks of beautifully threaded flowers cascade down the wall and inspire my own imagination to come up with new ways to decorate.

I love the holidays! More opportunities to host and break out my special cocktail menus and party dresses. I am so inspired by this Kate Spade shoot. What a great way to reinvent the holidays. Can’t afford a tree? Draw one. Want a new holiday idea? Go crazy with the glitter! How cute and delicate.

I ask you, is it too late to whip up a holiday extravaganza with only three weeks to spare? I hope not, because I’m on board to make this happen!

I’m inspired by this table setting: the colors are lovely and the geometric shapes are fun and playful.
