Dear San Franciscans, Madewell is turning 1 in our beloved City by the Bay! Join me on July 26th as I’ll be hosting their anniversary bash with an evening of denim, music, sweets, and of course, DIY. We’ll embellish my favorite chambray and denim shirts with plenty of sparkle and shine so be sure to RSVP . . . see you next Thursday!
The Meyerhofer Residence is 5,000 square feet of glass, steel, redwood and stone set in the foothills of La Cañada Flintridge, California. The house was remodeled and based on its deteriorating, midcentury predecessor. Every detail, including the Arco lamp, vintage Finn Juhl dining chairs, Ralph Pucci lighting, shag rugs, and vibrant orange accents, is pure midcentury modern bliss!
Viennese fashion designer Susanne Bisovsky‘s collection is a tribute of her country’s traditional costume, tracht, and the great Frida Kahlo. Her photographic series is currently on exhibit at the Kunsthalle Wien museum in Vienna until January 2013. The styling, the craftsmanship, and the art direction are so rich in detail that I’d love to see it all in person.
A couple of weeks ago while in London, I paid an obligatory visit to the third floor my favorite and one of the most iconic stores in the world: Liberty of London. After pulling bolts and bolts of Liberty fabric from the shelves, I eventually walked away with enough DIY supplies and material to hold me over until my next British stopover. It also didn’t take me long to whip together an incredibly simple DIY, upon my return, using a couple of sweet floral prints. This floral lampshade is a breeze to make and a fantastic way to utilize fabric without having to use a sewing machine!
