A Rachel Meadows project

This Los Angeles home designed by Rachel Meadows is the perfect blend of vintage bohemian funkiness. I adore every piece of furniture and of course hats off to her for using large scale photography on the walls. I am forever a fan of that, and I am ready to move in....I just need to pack up the cats.

New art from CanvasPop

The folks over at CanvasPop contacted us the other day offering a canvas print from a photo of our choosing. I jumped at the chance because as I have mentioned many times here, photography is my favourite form of art. I had a 16"x24" canvas to work with and chose this incredible photo by my friend Tom who loves to shoot around the streets of LA where he lives. He kindly sent a copy to me in high resolution so the result would have good clarity. I am in love with the finished product! This company is fantastic and makes it SO easy - especially if you are working with a photo that is not quite up to snuff. You can print from any source - mobile photos, Instagram, Facebook or directly from your computer. If needed you can use their filters and effects to tweak the photo into exactly what you want. They even offer design services if you aren't so photography saavy. When your photo is ready they have tons of options for layout and sizes - including triptychs and panoramic prints. And this is nuts - they have a love it for life guarantee, so if you don't love your canvas they will reprint it or refund you. I hung the canvas over my new sofa (more on that soon) and the size ended up being a bit too small for the space so I hung some Puerto Vallarta finds around it to fill it in more. I think I will look for something a bit bigger for this space but I have other ideas for this awesome canvas when I do. Thanks CanvasPop!


Antique portraits in unexpected spaces

The Village


One thing I have loved for as long as I can remember are very old antique portraits in gilded frames used in not-so-traditional spaces. Here are 2 random photos I came across recently where these portraits are hanging in very unexpected spaces, and they look fantastic in both. 


The gallery in the garden

Oh! Oh! I want one! Rear Yard Art Pavilion by Gemmill Design. Who knew that such a thing could live at the bottom of a garden?
