Ugh, is it too soon to change the color of my kitchen cabinets from grey to blue? I’m crushing hard on these kitchens painted in a multitude of dark blue hues. From a soft grey blue tone to a bold indigo shade, blue can either add a sense of calm or immense richness to the kitchen. Here are some examples that have nearly convinced me to make the switch!
From platform sandals to smoking slippers to combat boots, designers are offering a plethora of velvet shoe options this fall. This luxe fabric makes its resurgence year after year, which makes the investment totally worth it – velvet shoes never go out of style!
I’m loving this little capsule collection of environmentally friendly clothing from Zara, as part of their Join Life Project. Blouses, trench coats, denim and jumpsuits are made using organic cotton, recycled wool and Tencel, a wood fiber that is extracted from sustainably managed forests and uses sustainable technology to produce, which eliminates the negative environmental impacts of traditional fiber processing. How is the white ruffled blouse and high waisted trouser ensemble? Sold.
You might remember muralist Sean Yoro, also known as Hula, who first caught our attention with his striking concrete and iceberg murals, which are only accessible by his stand up paddle board. After an inspiring trip to Iceland last year, Hula is back in the Arctic – this time on Baffin Island, of the Canadian arctic archipelago, to search for a massive, but rapidly melting, glacier on which he could quickly paint a portrait of a local Inuit woman. It is a tribute to the local culture and the effects of climate change on the Inuit community. Not before long, the glacier and Hula’s breathtaking mural will melt away. But there is only hope that his message will live on.
Joining her collection of leather stitched and sculptural brass jewelry, Andria Crescioni has introduced two gorgeous, new handbag styles. A structural saddle bag and clutch, available in oxblood and black, feature Crescioni’s signature leather handles and are constructed using the same saddle stitching techniques that we admire so much. The California based designer’s modern interpretation of traditional western leather goods is so on point.
