Creativity runs in textile and fashion designer Asta Masiulyte‘s blood. At an early age she watched her grandmother use the loom to make traditional Lithuanian quilts and observed her mother work at a knitting machine. Asta’s Touch is a series of scarves, inspired by how dye spreads out onto silk. Each scarf is made of natural silk and hand-painted with hand rolled hems. They are wearable art indeed . . .
I’m so grateful for Fig & Fauna for showing us all that is pure and good in the world. Sisters in law Megan and Rose Martin document rural farm life through their blog, where they share their agrarian living & farm inspired cooking. You won’t be able to stop scrolling through each page, with one stunning beautiful recipe after another . . .
A slight departure from the usual, über feminine aesthetic, Massimo Giorgetti introduced sporty-chic to his resort collection for MSGM. We’re loving the latex trimmed bouclé jacket, striped bomber with scuba netting, floral baseball caps, as well as the abundant use of florescent yellows and greens. 40 to love . . . it’s matchpoint!
These days we’re all for reincorporating the anklet back into our accessory repertoire. Made with thin chain and tiny charms, delicate anklets are the perfect summer trinket for those beachy bare feet or barely there sandals. This week’s DIY requires only two pairs of pliers and a handful of accessible supplies – which can then be used to make bracelets and necklaces, too!
Whether you’re an avid art collecter or simply art impaired, there is no denying that art plays a key role in creating the look, feel, and atmosphere of any room. The problem, for some, is being intimidated by the abounding choices and the presumption of high price tags. And even though we consider ourselves lovers of art, we’re definitely no exception when it comes to being challenged by picking the “right piece.” Enter Art.com. A few weeks ago we were invited to Art.com’s 25 Summit, where we were able to see the launch of their new, easy-to-navigate online experience. With the ability to narrow down searches by period, color, artist and/or subject, as well as being able to choose from a selection of handcrafted custom frames, we dare you to not get sucked into the process of customizing you’re own wall-ready art. Accessible, affordable, and inspiring, we’re literally hung up on Art.com!
