Steven Harrington *New* Un Royaume Print

I recently blogged about Steven Harrington and had a slew of readers inquire about his peacock print via the blog and email. Wow, he has a real following out there! (Update: he’s in the studio working on it. I’ll let you know as soon as the peacock is ready to fly.) In the interim, check out his new “Un Royaume” print, it’s fantastic isn’t it? Details: 18×24, 5 color screenprint produced in edition of 100, $45. Click image below to enlarge.


Thanks, Steven!

J Crew Eye Candy

So I was talking to my friend Becky the other day about shoes, because I’m on the hunt for yellow, blue, or red flat peep toes (I loved the BCBG Girls flats in Blueprint this month, but they’re impossible to find via BCBG, you have to hunt around Neiman’s or Macy’s). During this chat, she said why she loved shoes so much. They don’t give her muffin top.

That made me laugh and then I felt a sting of reality because you know, she’s right. I don’t have the perfect body, but my feet are always the perfect size 8.5 or 9 and they look great in everything. From the ankle down, I’m walking perfection.

Becky sent me over to J Crew, where I fell into peep toe heaven, and then I came across their Spring ad campaign. I love me some product shots, I’m always trying to see how I can turn outfits into rooms (thanks to Domino).

I’m seeing a lot of yellow, blue, and red this Spring.

The new Urban Outfitters catalog, the covers of magazines, Anthropologie, Kate Spade, Orla Kiely, and now J Crew. Red, yellow, blue. Love it!

If you need decorating inspiration, look no further than clothing catalogs and stores. Serious. Look at how colors and patterns are mixed together and try to think of ways you could do the same in your wardrobe and beyond – rooms. Inspiration can come from anywhere.

Psst: Want to see the best trench coat in the world?

Hit or Diss?

Look at this image carefully. Found this today in the NYTimes and had to share. Designers for Karastan used vinyl storage bags filled with recycled materials as seating at the recent Dining By Design event in New York. Is this idea a hit or a diss?


Would you try this at home? What would you you fill yours with?
