Carrie Lamp + Carrie Lantern

carrie-lamp-1-design-crush

 

Autumn has finally shown its face in Pennsylvania, making me want to nest, wear socks, and light candles. I’m loving these two pieces from Norm Architectures – the Carrie Lamp and the Carrie Lantern – for creating a cozy evening ambiance. The Lamp is an upgrade of the Lantern, it’s USB-rechargable LED powered while the Lantern relies on a candle. (It can also function as a case though, so bonus.)

Erik Jones

erik-jones-1-design-crush

 

There are elements of Lisa Frank and everything else shiny, happy, and good in the mixed media art of Erik Jones. Ten-year-old me would have loved and appreciated these chaotic works that use watercolor, acrylic, colored pencils, wax pastels, and oil paint as much as 36-year-old me does.

Meringue 12 Ways

Here are twelve delicious looking recipes to investigate.

Modern Minimal Sneakers

Mascavii Blueberrys

At the end of the day I’m really just a jeans and sneakers kinda gal. Clean jeans (usually) and cool sneakers, but I digress. I usually reach for my white Converse or a canvas slip-on, something comfortable that manages to look like a little bit of effort. Check out these ten pairs of modern minimal sneakers that would no doubt tie together any look.

ONZA Tiles

onza-1-design-crush

 

With just a glance can you tell what MUT Design‘s ONZA modular tiles are inspired by? Chocolate bars.  In texture, production process, and how they’re melted down with heat. They’re beautifully minimal, composed of just three ceramic pieces with invisible joints that allow infinite compositions when assembled. Choose from three neutral colors – grey, terra-cotta, and white.

Fall 2016 Wish List

1/Brass Hairpin  2/Brown Leather Backpack
3/Gold Heart Locket  4/Goldie Flat Booties

Fall is my favorite season, but it’s for the crisp air and wardrobe options rather than the pumpkin spice lattes (blech!) and shorter days. And I’m past ready to bring out ankle boots, sweaters, and hats. I wouldn’t mind adding these things to my life either…

Eduardo Terrazas

eduardo-terrazas-1-design-crush

 

Eduardo Terrazas experiments a lot through his art, but my favorite is Crecimiento Exponencial. In the series of sixteen frames Terrazas explores the limits of growth through an evolution governed by predetermined rules and the physical consequences of two types of growth, exponential and organic.

“The rule that guides the representation of exponential growth is to keep adding lines, exponential and proportional manner, a white square format initially, until the increase is so intense that the square format becomes completely black. It is clearly a process of accumulation of unsustainable elements.

To represent organic growth it was decided to divide the space to bring it to a process of diversification; Thus, the original white square was first divided into two colors, the following table in four colors and so on. The gradual division of space during the first half of the series manages to visually show sustained growth and the second half of the table 9 to 16, it is an affirmation of the infinite possibilities that organic growth generated.”
