Kitchen nook - Before and after

I had plans for my husband to build me a new table. He's really a good woodworker, but when it's your hobby it doesn't get a high priority. I picked up this new table off of Craigslist. So happy to have an actual table there and not a piece of glass floating on the chairs. 

This is what it used to look like a few years ago. The chairs started to fall apart and the green walls were a bit too dark for my liking. It was a cute little set up but I don't think went with the style of the house. I smoothed out the walls and stuck up my wallpaper and it really brightened up the room.

Calder and Abstraction: From Avant-Garde to Iconic

I went to this show today, and wow... it was amazing! Sadly I couldn't take any pictures inside :(.

There were tiny mobiles, static mobiles and very very big mobiles. Usually when I go to a museum I will see a few Calder pieces here and there, but i have never seen this many in one show. You must go there and see it for yourself! 

Some of the shadows the mobiles made were even more beautiful than the actual pieces themselves. Like seriously go and see this show! NOW!

On view September 6, 2014 to January 4, 2015

Mid-Century Modern: Complete by Dominic Bradbury

Via Inside out 
Via Obsessilicious

Here are some better pictures of the MCM book. I did the artwork for the UK version which just came out. Hoping I can get my hands on a copy here in the states.

This definitive survey of one of the most popular, collectable and dynamic periods of international design offers a rich overview of all aspects of the subject. It covers furniture, lighting, glass, ceramics, textiles, product design, industrial design, graphics and posters, as well as architecture and interior design.

The Guildery: Modshop

I did a collection for a fabric company called the Guildery, the group is called Modshop

For a limited time get free shipping and %20 using the code: PREVIEW

With midcentury-modern-meets-Gatsby glam, this collection creates a powerful statement for a lounge area. The eggshell and smokey green restrains the pinks from getting too sweet. We selected coordinating linens and cottons in similar colors.
