A World Of His Own

Renowned artist and sculptor Jorge Pardo spent 6 years building his home on 740 acres of land, deep in the northern Yucatán jungle in Tecoh. Combining Mayan culture and modern design, Pardo embraces the jungle with open doors and windows, rows of hammocks hanging above a blue tiled floor, origami-like ceilings, and even a swimming pool with a terrarium built close by so swimmers can see the roots growing underwater. Honestly, WTF.

Each bespoke piece is so incredibly exceptional – the talented jewelry designer has an amazing knack for mixing metals, implementing unique techniques like inverting conflict free diamonds, and creating “gemstones” from solid gold. I do, Anna. I do.

DIY Lace Mickey Mouse Ears

Halloween is my holiday . . . or at least it was before this year. With a house renovation and an infant on my already full plate, DIYing a head-to-toe costume has taken a backseat to other priorities. But despite how busy I am, I will not go without something to wear. Inspired by Maison Michel‘s lace bunny ears and everyone’s favorite Disney character, these easy to make Mickey Mouse ears are how I’m cheating my way through Halloween 2013.
