Case of the Mondays

I have just not been feeling inspired lately. Besides the walking pneumonia I have been dealing with, I have got a serious "Case of the Mondays"... so blah. On a positive note, yesterday was stunningly beautiful, a true fall day - and I received my copy of Show in the mail - the book by Ralph Pucci. I really want to write to him and do all that I can to get a job in one of his showrooms, but I am afraid that anything I send will fall through the cracks. Do any of you have a creative idea for reaching past the "gatekeepers" to the head honcho?

Australian Design

I have been thinking about a trip to Australia lately. I have blogged before about Vogue Living Australia being my fave design mag, and Belle is also a great shelter publication from Australia. I think that the Aussies may have the most exciting design point of view right now. Maybe because they are so cut off from the rest of the world, they do not feel the need to follow trends and they certainly have some of the most beautiful landscapes and architecture in the world. Not to mention that I could visit some of my favorite stores and bloggers, like Anna Spiro of Black and Spiro!

Please donate to my "Visit Australia 2011" fund!

Design Crush: Jeff Andrews and client

Here is a project done by Los Angeles designer Jeff Andrews. Most of Jeff's work is really accessible and lovely, but this moody, sexy bachelor pad in Rome is my favorite of all his work. I love you, Jeff Andrews, but my heart really belongs to the client who went for this design. Mystery Italian, I want to live there with you!
