it’s been a while since we shared a fave book with you! i recently received this book as a gift and i am so very glad i did because i truly love it! taschen’s tropical fishes of the east indies book sold me with its cover. now before you start with the whole “don’t judge a book” deal…i have to admit that i just couldn’t help it with this one! this book is filled with colorful illustrations of marine fauna found in the indian ocean near the island of ambon which were drawn by samuel fallours in the early 1700s. as with all vintage fauna and flora illustrations, i find myself moved by the beautiful depictions of wildlife drawn before our time. as a designer, i constantly find inspiration in all different mediums and this book really is no exception. i love stocking our office full of interesting and inspiring books which we reference often for various projects. pick up a copy for yourself and prepare to be mesmerized by the beauty that is in the oceans that surround us.

we’ve always wanted to travel to portugal. so much of the country seems to intrigue us. coincidentally, we just happened to have stumbled upon another reason to book our flights to what some call the gentle land. areias do seixo is a boutique hotel made up of 14 rooms on portugal’s costa de prata. just an hour away from lisbon lies this eco-conscious hotel with an eclectic vibe all its own. we are totally into the mix of rustic and contemporary decorative accents that make up the hotel decor and we love the fact that the hotel’s designers took inspiration from morocco and india (two other countries on our must visit list) when dreaming up the hotel.
there seems to be something truly special about this place, it’s got personality but it isn’t pretentious and the fact that the vegetables and herbs served at the hotel come from the hotel’s very own organic garden definitely is an added bonus. and have you seen the hotel bathrooms? swoon-worthy to say the least! let’s just say we’re brushing up on our portuguese…

every project i embark on with a client is equally unique and exciting. this particular project was a blast to work on. our client did not want to shy away from fun, bold colors which is always ideal for me! we set out to create an inviting and masculine ambiance, utilizing unique and vintage finds to add that extra layer of interest. another plus with this project was that this client wasn’t necessarily pinned down to one era or style of design, which allowed us the freedom to create a space that incorporated a mix of pieces, resulting in a uniquely fresh environment filled with pops of color.
hello again everyone! to continue our celebration of the 1 year anniversary of vintage remix, we have another favorite project to highlight:
this project was so much fun to work on! a combination of bohemian and feminine accents gave this hollywood hills home such unique character. i loved mixing patterns and colors from the wallpaper to the pillows, and a fresh palette of black and whites with pops of color let the lush outdoor garden spaces shine. the mix of unique elements and flea market treasures resulted in a charming hideaway nestled into the hollywood hills.
