Today’s Track – Lauren, Men I Trust

This song has been in constant rotation as I’ve been traveling around Europe this week. A mellow yet slightly uptempo tune that gently reminds me “I can’t stay forever”… Lauren – the single – by Men I Trust, 2016.

Today’s Track – Don’t You Know, Kungs

I leave for Europe tomorrow; off to take in the Maison et Objet trade fair in Paris, and do a bit of shopping and exploring some other areas. So, I thought something French would be good to get me in the mood. And while this track doesn’t sound typically French per se, it is bonifiedly (which is technically not a real word) out of Aix-en-Provence. Don’t You Know by Kungs, 2016.

Pattern Patterns

Love this branding for Anna & Siena Fashion by Toronto-based designer, Alaa Amra.

Anna & Siena is a fashion line of basic and minimal cloth wear. The design inspiration came from the unique sewing patterns that were used to create the material. The sewing pattern adds energy and fun to the brand with keeping the sophistication through the typography choice and shapes style. The idea of sewing pattern adds a broad range of compositions that can be used for promotion purposes and packaging design.

Today’s Track – Rain Water, Brother Ali

I’ve been in Atlanta this week, walking the Gift Show and exploring the retail scene. But truth be told, I’m a little homesick. (Can that be right? I’m usually  pretty “present”, wherever I am.) Anyway, maybe a dose of Minneapolis sound will tide me over ’til my flight home. Rain Water by Bother Ali from the album Champion, 2004.

Addi’s Art

1477167769681

I’ve been on an art kick over the past few months, picking up a piece here and there to refresh and modernize my space; falling in love with a new generation of contemporary abstract fine art. I discovered the work of Salt Lake City-based artist Holly Addi while perusing Pinterest…

Her paintings are often about contact with architecture and basic living elements. Energy (heat, light, water), space and landscape are examined in less obvious ways and sometimes developed in absurd ways. In a search for new methods to ‘read the city’, she focuses on the idea of ‘public space’ and more specifically on spaces where anyone can do anything at any given moment: the non-private space, the non-privately owned space, space that is economically uninteresting.
