Hermés: A Sporting Life

How good is this Hermés spring/summer campaign shot by Nathaniel Goldberg? I love the sense of playfulness. Also - anyone have a place on Lake Como? I'd be glad to housesit.

Winging It

Love these structured, ladylike bags I've been seeing everywhere lately: smart enough for day, stylish enough for night, big enough to fit everything you could possibly need for a 24 hour period and therefore a staple in every closet!

Fave Four

Four dining rooms I'm currently obsessing over...
This first one is by the immensely talented Jonathan Adler. I didn't know it right off the bat, though, because it feels a little more subdued than usual, but upon closer inspection - the funky light fixtures, campaign buffet, and bright blue dining chairs with patterned, oversized end chairs were all telltale signs. Definitely my favorite room by him by far. Check out the rest of this house (and all of his other projects) on his site.

This Australian dining room belongs to Andrea and Ben Millar and quite frankly, I'm obsessed. The gallery wall, kilim rug(s), Moroccan light fixture, and rustic dining table coupled with old Sunday school benches (!!!) create a perfectly eclectic mix of awesomeness. The rest of the home is just as charming, so be sure to check it out on Design Files.

So fresh and so clean! I can always appreciate a monochromatic room full of unique textures, but what really sets this one a part is the vibrant artwork - soo bright and happy. The whole house is structured like this - all white with pops of color- and although it's not necessarily the most practical color scheme, I'm totally a fan.

This is technically the "lounge" of Dorothée Boissier and Patrick Giles of Giles & Bossier but I'm going to include it because that marble and iron table is too awesome. That and the architectural details of the space (hello parquet floors!) are what initially caught my eye, but upon further inspection there is so much to love - the abstract pattern directly stenciled on to the wall, the rope-hung fixture, the combination of warm neutrals- it's all so good. And then when I went to find the source of the image, I was beyond surprised to find that the ceiling has these long skinny insets that are painted BRIGHT YELLOW. yes, bright yellow:

And my reaction went like this: "OH!" (surprise) to "...oh." (but whyyyy?) to "oh..?" (ok, I think I might be getting it) because after seeing the rest of their home, this warm neutral palate I was initially appreciating so much is found throughout the entire house. And what better way to surprise/delight/intrigue than by adding this bright yellow to the ceiling in the lounge? I can't think of one. So I can fully appreciate it now. #respect

Run Along

If you're like me, you're way more likely to hit the gym when you've got workout gear you love and feel good in. So what better way to start the year (and your 2013 resolutions) than with a new pair of tennies? That is what I like to refer to as justified shopping.

In his series Broken Flower, Jon Shireman soaks flowers in liquid nitrogen then uses a special contraption to slam them against a wall at high speed to break them. The resulting photographs look pretty awesome. Check out the rest of his flickr stream here.
