ART ROUND UP : TRENDING GEMS

Hey guys, most of you know that I’m a big fan of Danielle from The Jealous Curator. That girl knows her art in a serious way and is always posting really incredible art on her blog. So while I never really have contributors (except Orlando), I think that its high time I learned more about contemporary artists. I’m dying to be exposed to more art you can actually buy (that was the hardest part of this task). Enjoy.  Hello! This is Dan… Continue reading

The Fig House is open for business!!!!!!!!!

As you know I’ve been working on my first big commercial project called The Fig House for about 11 years, and by 11 years I mean 8 months – as long as I’ve been pregnant, actually. Lots of birth metaphors could happen here, for sure, but despite the timing I will not be having my child at the opening party and no, his name will not be Figueroa (the street its on for which its named). So, here’s the story, Steve Fortunato,… Continue reading

Art Round-up: Florals

Hi there! It’s Danielle from The Jealous Curator back with another artsy (and affordable) round-up for you! And now for a little history lesson … as long as there has been art, this has been a favorite subject matter of artists (just ask van Gogh). It was trending then, and it’s trending today: #florals Oh! A face full o’ flowers! This is the lovely work of American artist Clare Elsaesser. Her Etsy shop is called “taste… Continue reading

The Fig House; A New Project

Oh, friends. Friends, friends, friends, friends, friends. I’ve been working on a secret project in LA that can now be announced. It’s very exciting. It’s very challenging. It’s totally engrossing. It’s The Fig House. Boom. There she is. It’s my first venture into non-residential design and it’s Steve Fortunato’s (from Room Forty) next venture into the restaurant and hospitality… Continue reading

Nike Schroeder String Art Piece

We moved into this house 10 months ago, which was probably one of the happiest days of my life, truly. I hate moving out  – the packing, the cleaning out of the fridge (do we take this 2/3rds jar of Soy Vey?), the admitting you are taking all your really skinny clothes to yet another house where they’ll just sit in your drawers, etc. But, I love moving in. Everything feels so fresh and your possibilities seem endl… Continue reading

Family Shelter Update

You might remember a few weeks back we started working on a pretty awesome project for the San Fernando Rescue Mission, a family homeless shelter, and with that we launched our indiegogo campaign to help raise funds for the furnishings. Thanks to many of you we are at 78% of the goal which is incredible considering we aren’t even halfway through our timeframe. THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU. If you haven’t heard of this project read t… Continue reading
