I just moved to DC, so - naturally - I’m researching the lay of the design land. In doing so, I came across Fowlkes Studio; a really, truly impressive contemporary architecture firm here. I’m especially taken with their Storm Kitchen project (although the shower in their Attic Retrofit is way up there too). I guess I can start to loosen my grip on New York now…
Koket’s Burlesque Console has great genes. If I’m going with a skin I’m in the leather, not snake, camp… but I’d rather get this reupholstered than not own it.
I think Flexform’s new Wing Sofa is the most beautiful thing I’ve ever seen.
Today I’m reminded of Erwind Frand’s sage advice. This should be the last page of every set of drawing presented to clients, no? “You can pick two. Love, Eva.”
I’ve posted previously about my love of hand-lettering. Birthdays are always an excuse to exercise calligraphic muscles; not to mention the everyday doodling that helps me think during/get through a long meeting. But it’s always good to see someone who has the real skills. A little reminder about why I don’t do this for a living. Ben Johnston: my hat is off to you!
Bea Szenfeld - an Icelandic artist - adorned this foxy lady, amongst other women in her remarkable “Haute Papier’ Collection.
The Line tells us the story of fashion editor and stylist Laura Ferrara’s weekend home in the Hudson River Valley. There are a lot of gems, but I’m particularly enamored with this wide plank reclaimed flooring.
Milan’s Dimore Studio is worth following. Their melange of chinoiserie, Scandinavian classics, contemporary lighting and opium den hues are vibing oh so well in these Milanese and Parisian interiors.

Here we have the MIRRORCUBE, my personal favorite “room” in Sweden’s Treehotel, with 360 degree views of the surrounding Lule River Valley…

Artists Nick Olson and Lilah Horwitz built this gorgeous cabin with found materials for $500 in the mountains of West Virginia. Photos of their work here.
