aesthetically speaking: copper accents

it has been the year of brass it seems, and we have loved every minute of it! but just as the seasons are changing, so are the trends! we are seeing more and more copper accents and are excited about this subtle, but interesting change. while brass lends its compliments to jewel tones and black, copper seems to fit better with lighter neutrals and white. it has a softness to it, while still being a wonderful bold and shiny accent! from pendants, to vases, you can even find a copper chair if you’re feeling brave enough! we are welcoming this trend with open arms and are excited to share with you some of the inspiring images we are seeing everywhere! plus we’re sharing some of our favorite copper finds to help you incorporate this trend into your own home!

art house: elisa strozyk

being a huge fan of fibers design and innovative wood work, we were in awe when we spotted the experimental work of elisa strozyk. born in berlin, strozyk received her master’s degree in future textile design from londons central saint martins college in 2009. although she is a young artist, her work is redefining the way we use and relate to everyday materials. wooden textiles, her most indepth series of work, challenges us to break through the self-imposed limitations we currently have on decor accents. wooden textiles was created for an entirely new tactile experience, and to literally reconnect us with an extremely familiar material in a way we have never known. beyond reconnecting us, it is reminding us to use natural materials that grow abundantly, over man made products that create much more waste and may harm the environment. her incredible half wood, half textile creations are something we have surely never seen before! to see more of her work visit her website.

hunt & gather: fall throw trend

for better or for worse, 2012 was the year of the chevron stripe. we had chevron headboards, chevron coffee mugs, and an excessive amount of chevron stripe throws. while looking for an updated throw for this fall, we saw the classic herringbone, and the traditional ultra soft throw with fringe, but we are prepping for fall with moroccan inspired textiles! the typical kilim textile is based on a specific type of weaving, and can be very intricate and full of color. today we are opting for a more modern kilim style print, merging eastern technique and western simplicity. whether you are looking for eco-friendly, inexpensive, or simply luxurious, you’ll find your match with one of our picks for the season.

art house: daleast

while we wouldn’t consider all spray paint on buildings to be street art, we are fans of real street art, which can be seen everywhere in la! from shepard fairey, kenny scharf, and retna on the west hollywood library, to hidden gems courtesy of banksy spread throughout the city. a man who has recently appeared in la is the secretive chinese artist, daleast, and we are fans! journeying over from capetown, africa in 2012 to make his rounds across the us, daleast is gaining popularity with his incredible new style of street art. his intricacy and attention to detail is jaw dropping, and the meaning he finds in these pieces is even more intriguing. take the time to read his interview with arrested motion, you will not regret it! and check out some of his beautiful work below! his appearance in la is actually outside of los angeles, on the newhall paint store in newhall (a new hub of santa clarita)  if you happen to be in the area!
