Portfolio of Hopi Kachinas

I recently thrifted a framed print of a kachina doll by Homer Boelter, a skilled wood engraver and a master of the lithographic processes. Fascinated by my new treasure, I researched the artist online and discovered that there are 15 other kachina dolls in his Portfolio of Hopi Kachinas, which was published in 1969 and limited to 1,000 signed copies. While he was a leading book designer of Western lore, Homer became well acquainted with the culture and artistic talent of the Hopi people which lead him to the creation of these beautiful plates.

The Coveteur

A couple of months ago, I gave the delightful team at The Coveteur a first look at my newly renovated home – and closet. Though the house is still a work in progress, it was so much fun watching these closet peeping pros work their magic. Check out the anecdotes behind some of my favorite wardrobe items and rest of the tour here!

For Love & Lemons Spring 2014

My recent trip to Mexico’s Riviera Nayarit has sparked my craving for more travel around Southern Mexico and Central America. For Love & Lemon‘s spring collection, which was designed and shot in Guatemala, has me dreaming of wearing nothing but their gorgeous dresses, embellished with the most delicate lace and repurposed with hand embroidered huipiles, on another Latin American getaway. And can we talk about the stand out chartreuse lace pieces that will so perfectly compliment that summer tan of yours? Honestly, stunning.

Petals Over Costa Rica

How do you bring a television monitor’s ability to display four times the detail of full high definition to life? Use 8 million vividly colored flower petals to represent the number of pixels in the display, of course. In Sony’s new advert, real life flower petals were released in the Costa Rican landscape – dancing through the streets of a village and erupting from the Irazu Volcano. The result is a beautiful visual explosion of color and magnificent detail!
