What a nice way to start the week! One Kings Lane is having a pillow centric moment on their site, and look who made the pile. I love the shot- it is so inviting, and it inspires me to work on a pile (or two) of my own. I love lifestyle imagery- it is more about taking a dream and making it a reality. It's wonderful to be in the mix on One Kings Lane, they are such a beautiful decor destination and I'm so happy to be invited to the party! https://www.onekingslane.com/sales/66677
I am really excited about our coverage in the April issue of Vogue magazine. Such an honor to be included in their "People are talking about" section. It feels good to see my babies on the page. They are really some of my favorite patterns- I love the feather, and I have a green version coming up in the shop. I am also fond of the Bubbly Chevron shown in greens and daffodil, which was really fun drawing all of those little blobs in pen and ink. I have been developing some new color ways using these patterns, so I'll keep you posted in the shop for new colors and styles. Thank you Vogue!
Really excited to be included for the Spring round up on One Kings Lane! I've had a crush on them for years now- I always enjoy looking at their website and dreaming of lovely things and read about their tastemakers, drool over their curated environments and see what's up and coming.

As a lover of ornament, old and charming typography, it made me connect with my roots as a graphic designer. My love of type has always been strong- I was trained in graphic design and love creating logos and branding identities. Really enjoyed reading this and check it out: https://eyeondesign.aiga.org/superfrieds-super-good-new-blk-ltr-series-typetuesday/ http://www.superfried.com/case-study/Blk-Ltr-Series/
What a great experience to bring my shop to NY NOW this week. It was a lot of work to create a 3D experience of my products, but so good to see it pulled together. Took us 3 days of set up, 4 days of promoting and 4 hours of breaking down. How is that possible? It takes 3 times as long to present your vision to the world and 1/4 of the time to destroy it all. There is a metaphor in there, but I'm too tired to figure it out... Wabi sabi is more than a philosophy, it is a state of mind. I was able to reflect on this during the show, and as I enjoyed the energy and met new people, I...
