One of my new favorite artists, Jon Klassen. I LOVE his use of color, content (lots of nature), and texture.

It’s always interesting seeing what design students are working on these days. Pretty nice colors and textures found on Under Construction.

Thought I’d share with you all my new chair. Funny how a new piece of furniture can bring me so much joy. If you like vintage furniture as much as I do, definitely check out Amandromeda online!

Thought I’d do a little post with some old photos I’d taken while out and about in San Francisco. Funny how these photos were all taken at completely different places/times, but they somehow all go together. Happy Monday!

Some really great prints I wouldn’t mind having on my wall. I especially like that the last two pieces have the words forest + girl in the titles!

All prints are available through artstream.

If I ever get married, I would love to have Max Wanger do the photography. I love that the personalities of each couple comes through in each of his photo sessions (and that the majority of them are done outdoors).

This piece by collaborating artists Wade Kavanaugh and Stephen B. Nguyen is breathtaking. Makes me miss doing installation art when I was back in college.

How does your garden grow?

April 7, 2009

Do you love gardening as much as I do, but live in a city, therefore, do not have a backyard? Well, let’s solve that problem by getting tips by local gardening expert Flora Grubb! Flora will be speaking/offering tips for gardening in small, urban dwellings at the Design Within Reach on Fillmore Street in San Francisco (Thursday, April 16th, from 6-8pm).

To rsvp, and get more information about this event, visit the Design Within Reach site.

I have an obsession with seahorses, and this exhibit, “The Secret Lives of Seahorses” at the Monterey Bay Aquarium looks absolutely amazing.
