October Obsessions: Rustic Minimalism, Serge Mouille and In the Company of Women

1. Rustic Minimalism: I am increasingly drawn to a style that I would loosely call rustic minimalism. There's something so beautiful to me about simple materials plainly used.  For me, the take away from this style is that editing helps you see the space better.  Take away things - look at the envelope of your home; if… Continue reading October Obsessions: Rustic Minimalism, Serge Mouille and In the Company of Women

September Obsessions: The photographer Kevin Russ, Giant Legos and Color Block Pillows

  Kevin Russ prints on Society 6: I've followed iPhone photographer Kevin Russ on Instagram for years now.  He's been on the road since 2012 and his images of traveling around this continent have been inspiring, enlightening and moving.   The people, stories and land he's encountered on his trek are rooted in Jack Kerouac, John Steinbeck… Continue reading September Obsessions: The photographer Kevin Russ, Giant Legos and Color Block Pillows

August Obsessions: Pale Wood, Monbento Boxes and Leon Bridges

Light, Rustic Wood:  "Dark, distressed wood" - I write this loose description out quite a lot as a design element for clients (and yes, it's the title of my upcoming thriller).  However, I keep seeing light, rustic wood popping out in different places and I am all in.  One thing I've noticed recently in terms of Denver… Continue reading August Obsessions: Pale Wood, Monbento Boxes and Leon Bridges

April Obsessions: Art, Design and Life

Here's an end of the month wrap up of my latest loves in the world of art and design.  I see a lot of images and rooms for my job and I have a tendency to obsess (a slight and gentle obsession, lady-like if you will) over certain things.  I thought I would start sharing these on… Continue reading April Obsessions: Art, Design and Life

David Bowie and the Business of Life and Design

David Bowie has been on my mind since learning of his death this week.  I wholeheartedly admire Bowie's uniqueness and his ability to change and take risks with his art.  He was a fascinating and unusual person who through his art and music always gave me the feeling that it's more than okay to be different and to… Continue reading David Bowie and the Business of Life and Design
