etc.: vertical garden design

vertical garden by patrick blanc

kids, meet the NEW mural, the vertical garden.  i'm loving the work of patrick blanc, the original vertical garden creator, particularly the sweeping form and textures in this piece.


covet: architect lamps

architect lamps by crate and barrel

in pink please.  thank you.


covet: plant pods

plant pods by domenic fiorello

on the verge of moving into a TINY apartment, i am down for anything that will save some space.  these little plant pods are a hip approach to displaying some greenery without losing a ton of space.


etc.: cheers!

Inside Out Champagne Glasses from the MoMA store

super sleek and just about perfect for a champagne toast at my wedding!


etc.: modern wedding venue

with my family unable to travel for the wedding, our options for our ideal "raw urban venue" are sparse...if they even exist at all.  you see, if you want a wedding on the central coast you have two options:  ranch or winery.  thats why i just about jumped out of my seat when i saw this modern-looking tasting room at linne calodo winery.  sadly, they can't accommodate even the smallest of weddings.  and our search continues...


furnish: metrobench

this bench is made from recycled NYC metro cards - cool concept.

pairings: bag + chair

can't you picture this purse by xanath lammoglia slung over this chair by kartell?

(hint: look careful at the kartell chair... can you see the silhouettes of the series 7 by jacobsen, the tulip by saarinen, and eiffel chair by eames ... isn't that cool?!)
