Please Stand By

I will be taking a mini blogging break.  I’ve got some things I need to work on, and I’m using my blogging time to do it.  I promise to be back soon!  Stay tuned.

Blogger Stationery

Why yes that is the much obsessed over Imperial Trellis and Chiang Mai Dragon you’re seeing lining those luscious envelopes. Crappy image via my iPhone of the March Elle Decor. They tell me that Schumacher teamed up with Dempsey & Carroll for this line of limited edition fabulousness. A set of ten cards with hand lined envelopes will set you back $55. Maybe these aren’t for the desing blog obsessed?
My suggestion, if you’re still enjoying the patterns, is to spend your $55 on actual yardage of the fabric and place in frames for some impromptu art/inspiration.

In Case You Were Wondering…

This is my type.  What type are you?

Kelly Wearstler

Say what you will, but I do think she’s awesome.  A few years ago her Hollywood Regency obsession was surprising.  Now it’s everywhere.  Just do a search on ebay for “hollywood regency” and see how much comes up.  The words are synonymous with desirable style and Kelly Wearstler brought them to the public.

I’m currently studying the work of KWID.  I’m trying to suss out where the crazy, over the top meets beautiful and somehow perfect.

This, for example, is a masterful use of tape.  Those single lines of pattern running down those curvy pink chairs is somehow perfect.

Don’t even get me started on the Giacometti-esque side table.  Or the styling of objects atop it.

Happy Valentine’s Day!

Posts that Haven’t Happened Yet

Posted in Bloggity by laurencorbyn on February 12, 2010

So I got really excited about snazzying up the images around here.  Also, I’m waiting on a much snazzier blog overall… but might be waiting for quite a while as I don’t have the knowhow to do what I want.

But here’s an image I worked on a while ago, but never quite made it to the blog.  I thought I’d go ahead and share.  I believe it’s from Schumacher, but I’m not 100% sure:

This is WALLPAPER.  I think it’s absolutely beautiful.  I imagine it somewhere small, like perhaps a powder bath?  With black, laquered cabinets and glittery lights.

Rocky Luxe

The perfect rocky, luxury.  Organic glam?  Ugh. What a goofy description for a beautiful piece of jewelry.  It’s the perfect mix of matte and shiny, earthy and luxe.

For the Dudes

Posted in Bloggity by laurencorbyn on February 11, 2010

…naked lady pillows and all.

I’m mildly uncertain about the zebra chair.  I like that it adds a little brown and organic quality, but the shape might be a little too trad.  How about this to spice things up?  Still organic-y with the leather, but a snazzier shape + tufting = good things.

I’m imagining this in an apartment-y setting where the living and dining are near each other.  This table is just big enough to play cards, or use a laptop, or dine for four.  That’s all a single dude needs, right?

Jealous.

Totally jealous of Jen West’s Dallas client.  I mean, I’m jealous that Jen has the client.  Though the client is going to have a kick ass house, and that’s worthy of a little jealousy too.  More here.  I’d like to be like Jen when I grow up.  When’s that going to happen exactly?

I mean, THIS is going in the powder bath.  To. Die. For.
