art + design

i found photographer emily johnston anderson through the blog of crystal gentilello. her interior shots are stunning and the artifacts series reminds me of emily’s object series!

i will be anxiously awaiting the opening of her print shop so i can get my hands on a few of her hauntingly beautiful land images.

the blog world has opened my eyes to so many talented artists that i adore. do you have any favorite artists that you are loyal to or do you go for whatever catches your eye? my apartment is still in need of a lot of art. i would love to hear where you go to find great pieces!

if you follow my feed on instagram, you may have noticed it was not a typical work day for me. my pup has had to have a few operations at the vet hospital in manhattan for a few months now and both my sister and brother are currently there for school, so my mom and i thought we would make a day of it and head out there early wednesday morning. we did some shopping, sangria drinking at my favorite restaurant and hit up the book store where i stared at the art supplies and longed to be in college again.

since i was there for school, manhattan has really boomed. what i love most about that small town is the strong sense of community and how all of the local businesses really thrive. one of my most favorite additions to the little apple is varsity donuts. my friends and family have gotten pretty used to my instagram habits, but i was going picture crazy in this place. i mean, how cute is it?!

on our car ride home i was talking to my mom about branding and having the whole package as a business. we agreed that atmosphere and impeccable, consistent branding is a big part of what brings people back. i only wish this sweet shop was a little closer to me.

have you been to a restaurant/shop recently that has completely sold you based on aesthetics? it gets me every time!

happy weekend! enjoy these last few days of august (can you believe it?)

when i think of macarons i think fancy. i am not a fancy person, although i like to pretend otherwise every once in a while. that’s why i totally fell in love with the macaron and meringue packaging over at we made this. it’s unpretentious and just plain good lookin’.

hope you all had a nice weekend! i was able to get a whole lot of stuff done saturday morning before heading to the pool. productivity pretty much ended there, unless you count being a part of the winning team of a case race and watching 30 episodes of lost. classy, i know.

flowers are popping up all over the fashion scene for this fall. i try to stick to classic pieces that don’t go out of style too quickly, but sometimes a trend just sucks you right in, you know what i’m saying?

these mixed media collages by fashion illustrator mustafa soydan are on trend and real nice to look at.

have you given into the florals yet? i’ve been noticing some pretty rad floral denim lately that brings me right back to my 90′s childhood.

nicole martinez’s society6 shop is full of adorable illustrated prints. the girl has a great sense of humor and uses fantastic color combos. the nerds in love series stole my heart this morning.
