I have been gone from this space for far too long, friends. I’ve been busy? Summertime? I don’t know, the point is that I miss being here and I want to be here more. To start, I want to share the extraordinary work of Stephanie K. Clark. I came across this article about her embroidered homes and you know I can’t resistbeautifulembroidery. Take a look:
I love the colors, delicate details, and use of shadows in her series of dwellings. They work together to tell a story. In her own words:
I consider myself a painter and I paint with thread. The process of transforming string into art struck me as something visually stimulating with complex simplicity.
The idea of using embroidery permeates the feelings of my grandma’s home and the embroidery skills she has passed down to me. With that, I use embroidery to create the domestic feel to tell the story of life in the home and family.
I have wanted to do a lemon yellow + bright blue combination since Gina’s comment on my peach + turquoise post. Lemon yellow + bright blue is such an easy warm weather combination, don’t you think? The weather in New York has been very warm and incredible this week. I’ve had the luxury of leaving work a bit early everyday and walking around the city, which has been so vibrant and alive. I love this city so much sometimes, still.
I am a big fan of the unexpected color combination. I clearly remember first thinking about this when I was much younger and reading the Flowers in the Attic Series (remember Carrie’s deep love of combining red and purple?). Peach and turquoise are just lovely together though, don’t you think? What is your favorite color combination?
I came across this list of little things on You Are My Fave today and it made me so happy, and they are all so true! In honor of Number 205, I gave myself a fun manicure tonight. You know what else makes me happy? Fun nail polish colors for $1.99 at Walgreens, above is Nirvana and Boom Boom.
