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

Art Roundup: Houses

Dear Emily’s Readers, It’s Danielle from The Jealous Curator, and I’m back again with more art. And yes, it’s all still affordable! So, if our relationship is going to go further, you should know that I have a small obsession with houses. I’m not sure if it’s actually trending, but #houses are always trending in my head — even if they have plants growing out of the bottom of them:   Oh my. The collage/embroidery wo… 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

Art for The Fig House: Clare Elsasser

The Fig House project is wrapping up, folks. We are in the super intense phase where everything is getting done at the same time. I’m off for an early site meeting now, but I wanted to share with you the work of Clare Elsasser whose work we are featuring at the space. Its 100 percent weird and beautiful … which is my favorite design combo.                … Continue reading

Well, folks, The Fig House has opened and its in full swing: currently being rented out for parties, weddings, birthdays, premieres and any occasion where one wants to have a good time in a beautiful space. To celebrate we threw quite the party for family/friends and some press … just a ‘hey guys, here’s what we’ve been doing the past 8 months’. It was pretty satisfying to finally show all my fri… Continue reading

The Fig House Lounge | Before & After

Welcome to quite a dramatic before and after, folks. Like ‘Extreme Home Makeover’ proportions only without the tears – wait, what am I saying?? There were tears shed; both out of frustration and then out of happiness – but I was pregnant the whole time, so who knows …  I cried once because I couldn’t find the third disc of Veronica Mars, season 2, that I had already watched twice so tears don’t really me… Continue reading

New Design Books I’m loving …

Yo. Some quick fast recommendations for y’all by people in my industry who I respect SO MUCH. Now that I’m working on the book I am buying/devouring more and more design/art books, with wonder if mine will ever come out (it will, there is a contract, fall, 2015, folks it just feels sooooo far away) and when it does, if it will be good. I thought my summer was going to be kinda relaxing but I have a feeling that i&… Continue reading
