I first discovered Paulina Reyes a few months ago while browsing the Kate Spade website. Paulina is a painter and illustrator, and a senior member of Kate’s creative team. While browsing the site, I stumbled upon Behind the Curtain, a cornucopia of imagery, links, and all things Kate Spade, including highlights from her current ad campaign. It’s quite a treasure chest, so give yourself time to peruse the site.
Learn more about Paulina here, and catch a glimpse of some of her illustrative work below. I love the bold graphics and the bright primary colors.
Aren’t these images from Kate’s 2007 calendar the best? The below images show the works of Anik Palulian and Abby Clawson Low. Paulina Reyes also contributed to this calendar. You can purchase it online, available as a small or large desk calendar or for the wall. I can see all the preppy girls lining up for this one with their Kate bag swinging from their shoulder. I love the vibe, very happy and totally screams weekends at the beach, which I’m betting we are all ready for right about now. Dreary winter, be gone!
Camilla has a new gicl?e fine art print in her shop, “Giovannina“, signed and numbered, it’s a limited edition of 100 – so pick yours up as soon as possible! Camilla is known around the world and may sell out quickly. The illustration is printed on a page from a Swedish book that dates back to 1856, $60- USD, print only.

The photography of Agatha Katzensprung is quite emotional, don’t you think? It’s photographers like Agatha that make us want to snap more photos and stretch our imagination. You have to look at her portfolio, gorgeous. A special thanks to Maryam for posting about Agatha, or else I may not have found her. What beauty! The image of the girl in the field, in her frilly dress, is my favorite. I think all women need to be photographed like this, in an empty field wearing something gorgeous. :)

Some may consider Spiegel a bit old school (or oldskool, depending on your age), but I find some unique home decor items on their website from time to time. Have an open mind, sometimes the places where you least expect to find something great is where you really do.
For instance, Spiegel has a fantastic selection of lamps with graphical shades that speak very much to the patterned shade/solid base trend we’ve been seeing. Since shades are so easy to swap out, it’s actually a great idea to purchase a lamp base you love and simply swap out the shade from time to time, alternating between patterns and solids, to give your space an all new look. Spiegel also has some nice floral salad plates and these fabulous mirrored stars for adding the perfect touch of sparkle.
