Behind the scenes of my Open Sky Shoot

Lately I have been experimenting with shooting at home videos for Open Sky.  This ladder was the perfect height and the construction light was from the hardware store. There has got to be a better way. Check out the video below

As You Can see we need a better lighting suggestion here but not too bad right?

Collage walls and the coolest Collage EVER!

Thank You Doug and Gene Meyer for the fabulous inspiration. My Mom used to make amazing collages my entire life with a mixture of photos and broken clocks. I loved those! I just found this amazing site where you can upload a photo of someone and then send a ton of images to make a collage of that photo - Kind of like this is your life. Would love to do tht my boys and husband. See Below

Weekend Fashion Update

I was so inspired by Nicole Farhi's SS12 Collection and so was apparently everyone else as I don't think there was a look that went down the runway this fall that didn't have a belt attached.  Love the sweetness and sophistication  of a Bow belt!

The space is decorated with 20th-century classics including an Eames lounge chair and a Hyatt table by Memphis Milano, as well as Laviani’s sideboard for Emmemobili and lamp for Kartell.

COLOR GENIOUS - Doug & Gene Meyer

I love Gene Meyer - have since the second I saw his scarfs when I was working at Vogue - I would save up and buy them wholesale and then turn them into pillows - where are they now - I hate that I have no idea I have no idea but I am sad about the loss. I was so excited to just even look at the amazing rooms that he and his brother Doug design. They are true lovers of color. Via Doug & Gene Meyer
