Oh, so much happened this week. Just so much. For instance, I bought these chairs:
Oh yes i did. I wish the upholstery was in good condition because the color is so great, but it has some stains … Has anybody tried getting furniture professsionally cleaned and has it worked? I can’t tell if I’d be wasting my money or saving my money.
Speaking of upholstery:
I turned a pretty dull but nicely shaped chair into this masterpiece. It’s for Bri’s house, and it screams chicnesss, oh yes it does.
Then I had a photo shoot:
Yes, that’s a photo of someone taking a photo of me. We also had someone taking a photo of the photographer taking a photo of me, and a satellite photo being taken of all of them taking photos of photos. It’s super meta. That is the lovely David Tsay, although I’m sure you’d recognize the back of that head anywhere.
This was for a magazine where I’m re-doing all these kinda junky flea market finds to something VERY awesome. Or that’s the idea. From garbage to gorgeous. From smelly to sparkly? From meh to omg?
They’ll just get transformed, and we’ll leave it at that.
Then I put a dickie on Bearcat. Decorative cat collars are HUGE this year, trust.
She looks like a little judge from a weird French cartoon movie! I don’t object!!!
Then we hopped on a plane and came to Alt Summit to speak. Last night the party was awesome and “Clue” themed with everybody wearing the color of one of the Clue players.
Orlando went Peacock and I went Scarlet, natch.
I caught up with some of my favorite bloggers, like Jordan and Paul from Oh Happy Day and a ton others, but my stupid phone is refusing to email myself the photos right now. I’ll have to post them next week.
I’m speaking today with Maxwell (founder of Apartment Therapy) Heather Armstrong (Dooce.com) Scott Kurnit (keep.com and about.com) and Aaron Gowalt (seesaw.com) about “The Future of Design, Online.” We are going to predict how we see the internet changing the design/editorial world. My thesis as of right now? Partnerships are the new advertisement, but is this good or bad?
