This California heat wave is summer’s way of telling us it’s here to stay for at least a few more weeks. And that means more time spent outdoors, whether it be at a picnic, concert or backyard BBQ. Since portable folding chairs are a constant must-have for those warm nights, I thought it would be fun to add some personality to them by way of color. Taking Glidden® paint’s My Life, My Color quiz helped me narrow down some bold and bright color choices – I loved each of them so much I might even end up using a couple for future home projects!
Influenced by the blending of ancient celestial cartography with modern day mysticism, Odette‘s fall collection Voyager is downright devine. I love how easily Jennifer Sarkilahti’s designs layer together – I want a ring for every finger! And if you’ve ever been skeptical of mixing metals, allow her pieces to convince you otherwise. In celebration of the launch of her new collection, Jennifer is offering free shipping through September 15th for our readers with code HWTFFW13. Enjoy!
Even though summer isn’t officially over for a few more weeks, Labor Day weekend always marks summer’s last hurrah. Sad face. But let us brighten those blues with images from Zara‘s fall campaign. With a slew of pretty floral dresses, plaid coats, power suits, and one incredible suede coat, how can you not be fired up for fall!?
I cried when I first learned of the touching story behind Chasing The Light, a historically contextual art expedition led by artist Zaria Forman. Her late mother, Rena Bass Forman, was inspired by American painter William Bradford’s 1869 expedition up the Northwest Coast of Greenland and dedicated her life to photographing this remote region. Sadly, Rena was never able to see the same voyage through. Her daughter promised to carry out the journey in her honor, scattering her mother’s ashes amongst the crackling ice diamonds of Greenland and painting the moody gray and indigo landscapes. Her stunning work made me think of everything we take for granted. A percent of all Greenland drawing sales will go to 350.org.
