Wax + Cruz

Stylist Lauren Austin Wood was inspired by the many textiles, brought home from her travels, while designing her baseball cap collection for Wax + Cruz. Made from African wax prints, Guatemalan ikat, Italian bouclé and shibori, and with visors of linen, suede and leather, these are not your average caps. I love the Americana!

DIY Stenciled Wall

Loomis Dean’s 1957 photograph of Christian Dior’s studio, for Life Magazine, hangs behind my desk on a blank wall. I’ve been looking forward to adding some much needed color and character as a backdrop to this large-scale print, so after spotting a Turkish tulip stencil online, I was inspired to go with a painted pattern. Starting the process was as easy as uploading the print to Glidden® paint’s My Image Inspiration tool, selecting one of many pretty pink palettes, and gearing up for an afternoon of stenciling with paint!
