Right Now!

Studio Oliver Gustav is one of my favorite design shops.  The creative consultant is based in Copenhagen and his studio, showroom and boutique is collected with a keen sense of dark nostalgia.  Oliver's sharp eye for objects, furniture and art is set on a monochrome backdrop, mixed with strong and modern cultural influences.  I think his work is so relevant and so right now!

Wow!  It's been a busy summer for me.  I've been working on a couple projects so I haven't been able to find the time to blog,  I was also feeling a bit lazy and uninspired to be perfectly honest but the energy in New York during fall is like no other.  It inspires me!  My desire to get out and about and explore during this time of year always gives me a boost of creativity and excitement.  I also do a bulk of my research during this time of year.  So that all being said, during my new found boost of energy and some research, I stumbled upon Muriel Bardinet -designer, architect and store owner of Dune 234 located in Ixelles, the Belgian capital.  Muriel's home, once and orphanage and a Japanese restaurant is now charming and full of life after some major renovating.  The combination of Moroccan decor and Scandinavian creates magic. Here is to wishing you lots of inspiration and magic in your own lives this season!!  Happy Fall everyone.  Cheers!!
