St. Jude’s Prints

I wrote about St. Jude’s Prints today over at Real Simple thanks to my current partner-in-crime Jo Copestick who is writing Decorate with me. She went to their gallery in Norfolk, England a few weeks ago and told me all about her visit so I had to learn more…

Art as Life

I’ve talked about Art as Life before on decor8 and have had Debee Campos as a Flickr contact foreevah but I thought today I’d give her the spot as blog of the week because her work continuously inspires me… And well, when people give you a positive reaction, share so many great ideas and inspirations and well, make your day so often then it’s not a bad idea to shout them out once in a while, is it?

Kate Spade

When I was in New York a few weeks ago (so fun being there for July 4th!), I spent 8 days mostly working but whenever I could find a free second, I slipped out to hit this or that design store — so many great places to shop, omg! I hit Kate Spade one afternoon after a shoot, the homeowner actually brought me there to go shopping with her and then she pointed me over to ABC Carpet + Home where I fell completely in love with their ceramics, pillows, jewelry and the Madeline Weinrib Atelier. There are no words to describe that store, right?!?

Kate Spade

But Kate Spade was such a highlight for me, the store was so decked out in all its colorful amazingness – a little quirky, a little retro, and a lot of style and color! I wanted to buy everything I saw but I only had a pair of sunglasses in my budget so I picked a pretty pair and now I can’t stop wearing them – so comfy and no lines across my nose – yeah! They came in so handy too – we were in New York during the heat wave and it got up to 103 F one day so my little purchase really got me through that crazy weather – and in LA too – I wore them on Hermosa Beach and Santa Monica and felt like a million bucks because well, that’s what a great pair of sunglasses can do for a girl, am I right!?

Artist Sarah Ogren

Today I’m loving the vibe coming off of the work created by artist Sarah Ogren

Well okay, I guess I was also feeling it yesterday to when I wrote about her here on Real Simple. :) Love her eye and the meaning behind her work… super intriguing to see a counselor translate her work into art.
