You know that commercial that's out right now where the girl is looking at FB and commenting out loud, "that's not a real puppy" I did that when I read that Kelly Wearstler has a new clothing line. "She can't design clothes, can she?" Apparently she can. Assuming she's the one actually designing the line...And it's sort of cute. I think. Thoughts? check it out.....

A person promoting something undesirable or discreditable.
We've been eating a lot of fish around here, a huge feat for me because, I have this strong aversion (phobia) to the creature. I don't want it near me, touching me, much less in my mouth. ( When I'm in the ocean, I never look down ) If I were on 'Fear Factor' the losing dare, would be getting into a vat of slippery, flipping fish. I'd eat a hissing Madagascar roach before doing that.
But things have turned around due to friends who regularly go out on the sea and catch Sea Bass and Halibut, generously dropping by vacuumed sealed, overage for our freezer. We now do a weekly, Fish Taco Tuesday. And I'm feeling mighty.
That having nothing to do with anything, I stumbled on to artist, Jesse Harris' website with this fantastic, packaging design and innovative branding of... fish. It's beautiful, simple and graphic. I like how he/she (?) uses a brown butcher paper and graphics that look stamped (reminds me of that art project using inked fish as a stamp) Way to take something undesirable and brand the hell out of it.
I love Instagram, it's like twitter for those of us who need visual aids. And like they say, a picture says a 1,000 words try that in 140 characters. So grab the app and start following me and or any of these creative peeps.
I have no problem hauling down my glossy beautiful interior books to the beach. There's not a more perfect day at the beach for me, than sitting under my umbrella, kids laughter, seagulls, waves crashing as my soundtrack and flipping through page after page of inspirational imagery.
I recently brought with me, British designer, Kelly Hoppen's, 'Interiors' book and was really impressed with the photos as well as the written content. This book is especially useful for anyone considering a redesign for their home. Hoppen has gone through all aspects of redesign giving helpful hints and solutions for hip and comfortable interiors.
The underlying message that Hoppen strives to impart is that one should, " Never underestimate the power of balance and harmony because once this is deeply rooted in the very foundations of your mind and your home, anything and everything is possible. "
And my favorite quote, "Organics shake things up simply by being what they are, giving a space integrity and intrigue" Couldn't agree more with this quote. Whether your using a vintage piece or something from nature, the organic component adds room and life to the space.
