furbish pop up shop

Sarah Martinez made these little watercolor paintings for Furbish, the Raleigh, NC home shop (which has an excellent online presence). They’re sweet and pretty and simple—and a great opportunity to buy original art for less than $150.    

ryan sarah murphy

More than a month? I never meant to take such a break from this blog. And while I was out, we all had a really nice trip someplace warm and beautiful and relaxing—right after losing our much loved and extremely old dog. So it’s been a journey, to say the least: the good with the [Read more]

daylight dreams editions

I just discovered Daylight Dreams Editions, a Los Angeles-based studio that releases fine art prints, some attributed to individual artists, some to the studio. (It’s an interesting approach to authorship and creatorship; thoughts?) I really like the overall simple/organic aesthetic and could see these pieces in any setting, on their own, in a group of [Read more]

heather day

Today I’m liking Heather Day‘s collage-liked mixed-media drawings. The Bay Area artist has a muted way with color and a relaxed hand with composition. (She also coauthors Taupe & Birch, a beautiful blog about creative people and their endeavors.) I couldn’t resist including this photo of her studio. I love the grid on the right: [Read more]

erin flett on etsy

No big deal, nothing complicated: just some very pretty block prints and textiles by Maine-based Erin Flett. I love her preppy-meets-midcentury aesthetic (especially that stack of striped wool blankets).  

free people spirituality shop

Free People what? I usually breeze past the department at my local Nordstrom; the clothes tend to be a little too hippie and flowy. But who knew Free People has an online “spirituality shop” that features these fantastic pieces for your walls? I love the texture and dimension you’d get by mixing them with prints [Read more]

the posters

Nate Lowman Yes, I read about it in Vogue, and I love it: Two well connected former gallerists launched The Posters, an online site featuring limited-edition posters for $55 by their cool artist friends. Get them while you can. Wyatt Kahn Owen Scmit  

bodie and fou

Quick note today: I really like these bold, simple black-and-white prints from British online home-design shop Bodie and Fou.   

judy ledgerwood

When one of my favorite Pinterest pinners (is that a thing?) pinned Judy Ledgerwood the other day, her work looked so familiar—I was sure I’d written about her already. A quick look at my archives said I hadn’t. (Maybe it seemed familiar because it incorporates so many things I like: pattern, flowers, pretty color.) So [Read more]

a few botanicals

Mia Camareros Just a few botanicals from around the web. These are all simple, beautiful, and well-priced. (While you’re looking at that top one, check out all of the Buddy Editions, a great new collection.)
