Laboratorio de Ballenas
Inspired by nature and organic shapes, natural colors and textures, I love the collection of images gathered on the Laboratorio de Ballenas blog. See it all here. Stunning.
Art Around My Home
I could not live without art. I can live without lots of other things, little comforts, but it makes me really happy to see, to take in, to enjoy, art everyday, and I’m always so excited to add some new pieces to my home. These pieces are several I’ve purchased from small independent artists (some of whose businesses have grown in really wonderful ways since my first purchase years...
Belated Birthday Gleena Surprise
Imagine my happy surprise this morning as I walked downstairs to leave my building and saw my name on a box from one of my favorite artists - what could it be? I scrambled into the car and off to work and set about opening the box before I even turned on the lights in my office.

And then every once in a while I find myself drawn to something, just a little piece, that is spectacularly bright (am in love with that rug below, which I first saw in a recent Inside and Out Magazine (Australia)). I like things that are beat...

Knot & Bow
It’s no secret that my favorite wrapping items are white and brown kraft papers. Throw in some hot pink and silver and gold, and, well, Knot & Bow steals my heart. I’ve loved the simple packaging elements of this Brooklyn company for a long time now, and was am smitten for their natural and metallic twine this past holiday season. Swoon (is it wrong to love packaging materials with...
