Interior designer Amber Lewis is feeding my textile fetish with her collection of pillows, made from vintage fabrics all over the world. The combination of bright boho colors and rich textures, from Malian indigo mud cloth, Laotian Hmong batik, Turkish kilims, and Indian hand blockprints, is everything. And let’s not even get started on her custom upholstered headboards . . . there aren’t enough beds and sofas in my life to accommodate this much pretty!
Wait! Before you pull your ponytail all the way through that elastic, leave it alone and allow it to be undone. Effortless and a tad messy . . . that’s the way we like it.
Textile designer and illustrator Teresa Lim is never without her mini embroidery hoop, thread and needle when she’s traveling. For instead of capturing the amazing landscapes she comes across with just the snap of a camera, Teresa immerses herself into the scene and hand embroiders what she sees. Incredible.
Silk georgette and chiffon gowns with intricate beading, embroidered embellishments, braided fringe and subtle cutouts . . . leave it to Mara Hoffman to dream up a yet another non conventional, yet absolutely stunning collection of wedding dresses. Dresses as beautiful as ones with shimmering bodices, entirely beaded and so beautifully extended past the waist, make me wanna get married all over again.
Who needs cupids and arrows when instead, you all you need is to wiggle your fingertips, painted with flirtatious eyelashes, at your beloved Valentine?! When we spotted this adorably sassy manicure on Hannah Bronfman, the queen of covetable nail art, we instantly had to recreate it. It wasn’t without some trial and error and a few strokes of the brush first. Practice makes perfect and we’ve perfected this one for you. Wink, wink.
