San Francisco artist Lisa Congdon‘s bold color choices in her mixed media collages are done to perfection. The juxtaposition of the subtle black and white line drawings with fur, prints, and colorful geometric shapes has me wanting to purchase every single print from her Etsy shop.
Do you remember how Diana, of Miss Moss, brilliantly re-imagined Kenzo‘s spring collection a couple of months ago? She’s outdone herself with another series – this time positioning looks from Thakoon‘s pre-fall collection against a selection of watercolors and oil paintings. The neutral landscapes compliment Thakoon’s pastel color palette, feminine silhouettes, and woolly textures perfectly!
Nestled in the colorful fishing village of Trancoso, on Brazil’s idyllic southern Bahian coast, is UXUA Casa Hotel. This sustainable and spectacular retreat was created by former Diesel designer Wilbert Das, in collaboration with local artisans, using traditional building methods, reclaimed materials, and Brazilian antiques and art. Four of the ten casas are restored fishermen homes on the 16th century town green called the Quadrado, while the rest sit in a lush garden. My kind of paradise . . .
The moment I spotted these colorfully wrapped reindeer and moose at Anthropologie last December, I knew I had to DIY it for HonestlyWTF this holiday season. Created in the style of vibrant Chindi rugs from Jaipur, India, these wrapped reindeer are incredibly fun to make, are a clever way to repurpose old t-shirts, and make fabulous gifts!
