INSPIRED BY: TOM DIXON

DESIGNER, ARTIST, TEA ENTHUSIAST,  TOM DIXON













I really wanted to capture the best of British designer Tom Dixon as part of an archive of inspiring artists for Braxton and myself.  I decided not to include information about his life, education or the quotes that I usually pepper my posts with.  Mr. Dixon is quite google-able and worth a moment of your time, if you are interested.
Have a beautiful weekend!

LATELY

The last time our older daughter was in town she used our studio to work on a project.  After she left, I found a roll of paper she had been using....wonderful wonderful magical paper.

So far I've made three lamps.



 And used some for my fabric designs.

 Looks like I owe someone a new roll of paper!

 The following pictures are from a weekend getaway when we decided to leave the too hot city.  Have I mentioned our air conditioner broke during a heatwave?




 Have a beautiful day.

FOR NOW

 Braxton and I have been blogging for almost two years now.  With over 500 posts, representing hours and hours of work (and loving every minute of it!), it's time for a break. 

There have been a few things I have been neglecting of late....our business, our house, my devotion to all things culinary, and many more I won't mention here.


We will continue to check in from time to time, mostly for the purposes of posting our progress on our design business, sometimes to share a wonderful photo, or just to say "hi".


For now.....adieu and thank you.
Much love and gratitude.

JONATHAN ADLERS HAPPY TAKE ON THE BARBIE DREAM HOUSE

HAPPINESS IS A MALIBU DREAM HOUSE
 When I was little I was not allowed to have a barbie doll because my wise feminist mother didn't think barbie was an appropriate roll model.  Naturally I grew up with a secret wish to actually be barbie...I mean come on...who wouldn't want to live like this!
To celebrate barbie's 50th birthday, Matel hired the king of happy decor Jonathan Adler to design an actual Malibu Dream house.
Move over barbie...I'm moving in!









I confess I love Jonathan Adler even more than I love barbie!
Have a happy day.
