Artist Travis Bedel has been quite busy since we first discovered his work earlier this spring. We just love the scores of new collages, where bold botanical species, colorful insects and the makings of the human body harmoniously collide. There is so much detail to each piece, you’ll discover elements in each piece upon further study.
I’m beyond smitten with Clyde designer Dani Griffiths’ latest collection of hats. Honestly, how chic are the felted wool hats with their exaggerated crowns, pinched tops and removable neck wraps to keep them in place during unforeseen weather!? I’m needing the ivory version to feed my white obsession this season!
Visvim designer and style maven Hiroki Nakamura understands the art of textiles and the importance of detail like no other. His ability to layer together indigo rich textiles, army coats, vintage pieces, patchwork denim, shibori mud cloth, bandana prints with accessories like Southwestern silver jewelry makes Hiroki is the perfect guy for our first male style crush.
I’ll admit it. I don’t like rain boots. They’re heavy, clunky and can be straight up cumbersome. Though these days, amidst a much too long California dry spell, I would actually welcome rain boots with wide open arms – especially Loeffler Randall’s new Fenton Rain Booties. I’m obsessed with the gold hardware details and the lightweight black rubber makes these shoes so comfortable, I would happily wear them anytime. Rain or shine. So with hopes of rainfall here in the West, we’ve partnered up with our friends at Loeffler Randall to giveaway a pair of Fenton Rain Booties and a $500 gift certificate to shop LoefflerRandall.com. Positive rain vibes, y’all. Simply leave a comment below, sign up at Loeffler Randall’s Facebook page, and a winner will be selected at random on October 20th. (Limited to US & Canada residents only. Must be 18 and over. Winner will be announced and contacted by email. Good luck! xx) *** Contest is now closed. Congrats to Lihn Huynh!
My favorite time of year is when summer beings to transition into fall. Those long sunny days still linger but the air is crisp. Cooler evenings mean heavier comforters and throw blankets. And nothing is more evocative of the seasons than this cozier than cozy than this lake house on the shores of Upper Saranac Lake in New York’s Adirondack Mountains. Designed by architecture firm Shope Reno Wharton, with interiors by Thom Filicia, the rustic family friendly retreat is memory making perfection.
