A Touch of Texture

{ Friday, January 04, 2013 }

Even just a hint of texture can spruce up an invitation, a purse, a poster, or anything at all. Adding that extra element of texture makes any piece more visually appealing but also the enhances the tactile quality of a work. Some of our favorite textures come from nature and vary from wood grains to crystal patterns. Here are some textured pieces that we find absolutely beautiful and inspiring. 

Design Blog of the Week: This is Paper

{ Friday, December 14, 2012 }

This week's design blog of the week goes to This is Paper. This is Paper curates a well rounded collection of architecture, product design, fashion design, interior design, fine art, graphic design, and photography. The blog features works that reflects an elegant and delicate design aesthetic full of soft pastels and neutrals complemented by clean lines and a touch of wood here and there. Aside from This is Paper's impeccable taste, we want to highlight that the blog often showcases student work. It is nice to see young artists and designers with fresh new ideas and even nicer to see well-known blogs recognizing the importance of supporting the up and coming not just the established.

Guy & Max Branding

{ Monday, November 28, 2011 }

This week we're inspired by the branding materials for jewelry line Guy & Max by the Proud Creative studio in London. They totally stole our favorite font (Gotham) that we use for a lot of our own branding, but we're willing to let it slide because it looks so good with their brand. We're loving the photography and business cards, but it's the storefront that really does it for us. The awning is beveled to look like a diamond - subtle, but it really adds dimension. The addition of the photography in the window (a collaboration between Guy & Max and English photographer Jason Tozer) gives it the finishing touch of perfection. Good work, guys.

We're feeling inspired by blues today! Whether it's in architecture, fashion, interior design, or jewelry - we're loving the multiple tones used in these photos that create such a blue mood.

Tom Ford - My Hero

{ Friday, April 01, 2011 }

As we all know, Tom Ford is an amazing multi talented designer.  From clothing to film, and now jewelry everything he touches is remarkable and ultimately beautiful.  I love that he is not drawn to convention, and dances to his own beat.  Using older and unconventionally striking models for his latest run way show is one of his beats that I am loving and singing to. 

Extra Long Necklaces

{ Thursday, December 02, 2010 }

I think we are going to make some extra long necklaces this weekend.  I love the classic lines, fabric, and style of Thom Browne's spring/summer 11 collection.  It reminds me of outfits my Grandmother wore to the Edgartown Yacht Club in the summers when I was little.  Read More
