aesthetically speaking: the photography of erik madigan heck

we have been fascinated with the vibrant photography of erik madigan heck ever since we stumbled upon the first photo below in harper’s bazaar that reminded us of frida kahlo! ever since then we have been following his work on instagram, which we highly recommend you give it a follow for inspiring images from his portfolio. below is a retrospective of some our favorite fashion photography that he has done in just the past year alone! we absolutely love the way he captures the blurring of lines between fashion and art through photography!

aesthetically speaking: industrial style

for today’s “get the look” feature, we look at spaces which have have embraced industrial style and how you can add a bit of this decor in your home. while industrial style began as a trend a while back, it has stood the test of time and now continues to still be used when mixed with other styles to give a space a more relaxed feel. it is not just a flash in the pan trend, but one that continues to leave us inspired in how it has been adapted with the times!

one of the main things we love about industrial style is how you can find one-of-a-kind pieces that you can personalize in a different way than what it may have been originally used or intended. sometimes, the reasoning is very intentional because you want to add a vintage or aged feel to a space to give it more character. whatever your choice is, it appears industrial decor is here to stay and we love design that has longevity!

if you’re looking to bring an industrial feel to your interiors, take a cue from these wonderful spaces that embrace this style, using industrial pieces that mix with more modern and contemporary details. we’ve sprinkled in items from rummage to highlight how you can can bring an industrial feel to your interiors in smaller ways, from furniture, accessories or lighting, before committing to the look for a whole remodel. do you have a favorite space below? let us know in the comments!

project diaries: get the look of a bohemian home office

for today’s “get the look” feature, we revisit a home office in the hollywod hills from one of our long time clients for whom we’ve completed many projects for in the past.

here we combined bohemian and feminine accents that gave this space a lot of character. our kpi team used eclectic pieces and layered in different patterns, from the wallpaper to the pillows, accessories and artwork, to create a remix of unique custom elements and flea market treasures that gave our client a charming workspace from which to grow her home business.

below we’ve shared exact product or suggestions from the rummage shop to help you recreate some of the vibe of this home office! to find out more about this room, see kishani‘s book vintage remix, which gives you more insight not only into this room, but other spaces that she designed in this gorgeous home.
