Calvin Ross Carl-1-Design Crush


Birthday cake? Nope. It’s the latest work from painter Calvin Ross Carl, who we last checked with back in 2014. He works with enamel and acrylic on a primed canvas to create these beauties that make me want to ditch the brushes and experiment with some adult-level finger painting.

FARIS-1-Design Crush


Faris Du Graf is at the helm of FARIS, a jewelry line. Each piece feels like it doubles as a sculpture, distinctive and imperfect in a way you want. Or at least in a way that I want in special jewelry pieces. Check out a few of my favorite piece from the latest collection.

Xuan Chen / Light Threads

Xuan Chen-1-Design Crush


Xuan Chen‘s mixed media pieces are tons of fun – all of that color couldn’t be anything but! My favorite series is Light Threads, where Chen’s grasp of textures and shapes really comes into play. The use of overlapping tones gives each piece so much depth.

Anna Hepler

Anna Hepler-1-Design Crush


The air-inflated sculptures of Anna Hepler are really something special. The Maine-based artist uses a drinking straw(!) to fill the pieces that are of varying sizes and colors with her own breath. Hepler’s other 3D sculptures and installations are equally breathtaking.

The Vintage Vogue

The Vintage Vogue-1-Design Crush


I’m admittedly a homebody. I love my home, I love being surrounded by things that hold meaning, and I love spending lots of time with my pets. But as we head into colder weather my time indoors increases even further, and I find myself doing what can only be described as nesting. Padding my space with a few new pretty things as I give it a seasonal deep-cleaning. One shop that’s caught my eye lately is The Vintage Vogue. Charlotte, the artist behind it all, gravitates towards a muted palette and natural materials that I just can’t get enough of.

Fine Little Day


The Grid Blanket // Glasilium Vase // Birch Knitted Wool Mittens // Storm Wall Hanging

I’d love to pillage the virtual shelves of Fine Little Day! Their carefree, simple philosophy goes a long way to explaining why they choose just what they do to sell in their shop. It’s about enjoying the everyday, not taking ourselves too seriously, and embracing the imperfections in this crazy thing called life.

Lotte Maja Bjerre

Lotte Maja Bjerre-3-Design Crush


I’m getting geisha hair vibes from Lotte Maja Bjerre‘s most recent work. You know I love hair art, though I’m not sure that’s what Bjerre was going for in these pen and pencil illustrations. But that’s the beauty of art isn’t it? The interpretation and meaning lies in the eye of the beholder.
