Our newest delivery is all about life as a canvas- the art of fashion. In honor of this, we’ll be posting some of our favorite artists and works of art all February long. On this gloomy, rainy day here in NYC, we especially love the bold colors of this Eames piece!
You can find a rainy/snowy day pick-me-up of your own here.
It’s that time of year when gardens really start to flourish. Especially tomatoes- they love the sun, which we’ve had plenty of this year. Not only do we love their juicy zing, but we’re suckers for that gorgeous tomato hue too- this summer we’ve splashed it on everything from shoes to skirts. Below, some of our tomato favorites this summer, perfect for summer Fridays at the office.

Self described “plant-nerds,” Matti and Megan keep a wonderful, colorful blog about all their gardening adventures. It’s a great place to get inspired, even if your garden is a pot on a fire escape (mine). There’s color, texture, and some of the weirdest plants you’ve ever seen. It’s great- definitely worth a click. Here’s a peek below:
Even their motto is great: “If you are not killing plants, you are not really stretching yourself as a gardener.”
I’d pack a bag full of bright accessories for my (pretend) stay here!

What the Hamptons are to us here in New York, Palm Springs is to Los Angelinos seeking a weekend getaway. And the most colorful desert retreat of them all is hands down The Saguaro.
It’s named after the iconic cactus of the Sonoran desert (it’s pronounced ‘sah-war-oh’), and that technicolor palette is inspired by the vibrant shades of native desert wildflowers. At first I didn’t believe there could be so many bright colors in the desert, but then I came across this fantastic palette from the architecture firm that designed the hotel:
Such gorgeous colors, flowers, and foliage! Makes me want to strap on some boots for a desert hike right now! And while guests usually do take advantage of the beautiful natural surroundings, with a view like this by the pool, I think it would be hard to leave my deck chair:

Designer Kiel Mead created a rainbow of driftwood hooks for Areaware. Great way to add a small pop of color to your living space.
This month is all about COLOR! And what better place to find, citrus-y, saturated, summery color than Palm Springs, where our SVP of Design stopped off on his road-trip of Southern California. He was really taken by the lifestyle and aesthetic there, and came back brimming with ideas for our June collection. I’ll be posting a few Palm Springs insider tips this week, so stay tuned.
In this installation, Finnish artist Anu Tuominen repurposes neglected flea-market potholders into a brightly patterned wall of color. And since COLOR is the name of the game this month, I thought I’d share this lovely photo set. (More on COLORFUL June tomorrow!)
Color We Love: Mazarine Blue
When we sit down to name colors each season, we draw from a variety of sources. But more often than not, we look to the natural world for inspiration. Case in point: Mazarine Blue. I was actually unfamiliar with this little beauty, but our SVP of Design used to see these in the UK where he grew up.

It’s almost that time of year!
