Pantone’s Color of the Year 2018: Ultra Violet

Screen Shot 2017-12-31 at 4.41.57 PM.png

So there it is… Purple. Okay, fancy purple. Purple about which they penned:

Complex and contemplative, Ultra Violet suggests the mysteries of the cosmos, the intrigue of what lies ahead, and the discoveries beyond where we are now. The vast and limitless night sky is symbolic of what is possible and continues to inspire the desire to pursue a world beyond our own.

So, there’s that. Except… I dunno. I think of purple as being for Unicorns and my 10-year old niece’s new bedding, and gypsies’ scarves, and grape popsicles. Do I really want a purple couch? If I think about it – do I really want purple  a n y t h i n g ?

So I’ve done a bit of soul searching. And while I’m still squarely in the skeptic box, I’m opening my mind a tad.

Edgy Wood


Fans of live edge, rejoice! Rustic Trip is an Etsy shop that specializes in creating furniture pieces (like headboards, tables and the like) out of enormous slabs of live edge wood. Yes, they’re spendy – but sooooo gorgeous!

I’ve been looking for a cool plug-in sconce and may just have stumbled upon exactly the right thing. From Nino Shea; a lighting and housewares Easy shop handcrafted by Molly Shea Ryan in Los Angeles, CA. (Click to shop!)


Shopping LA – part 1

Thought I’d share a few pics from my visit to Los Angeles earlier this summer. Loving the Cali Casual vibe and great mix of vintage + artisan + modern pieces!


In the Clouds

How cute are these cloud-shaped soaps from Vice & Velvet in Melbourne, Australia? Each weighs a hefty 140g and come individually packaged in a fabulous sliding box. With ingredients like organic green tea, organic white sesame oil and Dead Sea mud.

Our handmade soaps are crafted using the traditional cold process method with at least 50% olive oil. Due to the nature of making small, individual batches by hand, every cloud soap we create is unique. Vegan-friendly. Free from palm oil, parabens, mineral oils, Sodium Lauryl/Laureth Sulphate, synthetic dyes/pigments or fragrances.

(As always, click to shop!)


Citizen Cane

I’m currently obsessed by this amazing cane + bentwood chair by German designer Michael Thonet! It’s called the Era Chair (1859), and it’s been in continuous production for more than 150 years. On a mission to find some vintage ones…


Today’s Track – Dawn Raiding, Rose Smith

I’m off to Geneva today, so I thought a tune out of Switzerland was apropos. Dawn Raiding by Rose Smith from the album of the same name, 2002.


Impressive Letterpress


One of my all time favorites! Egg Press is a greeting card company, design studio and letterpress print shop based in Portland, Oregon. Founded in 1999, they are considered one of the pioneers in the resurgence of letterpress printing. They’re often noted for a sophisticated color palette, hand drawn illustrations, all-over textile inspired patterns, and sense of humor. They design and produce all of their greeting cards and small-batch textiles in-house. (All cards are $5.50/each or $17.50/box 6 – As always, click to shop!)

Love these gentle ceramic pieces from Barcelona’s Maevo Studio.
