You know what they say, April showers bring May flowers! It seemed only appropriate to share these absolutely stunning fine art photographs from Paul Lange’s Big Blooms collection on the first day of May.
If they look familiar, you might recognize them from the chic Manhattan office of Aerin Lauder. Her impeccable taste never fails to inspire and I was thrilled to discover Paul’s work among the many covetable items in her office.
Just another piece for the someday list!
P.S if you can’t wait for the real thing, I was really impressed with this pink poppy photograph from Art.com.
It’s a rainy Friday here in DC so I’m thinking we should take things easy and admire the work of Dallas, TX based artist, Megan Adams Brooks. Naturally, I gravitated to her interior series. Art+interiors=a home run in my book. Mary McDonald’s pink foyer looks even more beautiful in paint!
Do you have a favorite room you’d like to see immortalized as art? I’ve always loved this shot of Aerin Lauder’s living room and think that just about any of Miles Redd’s rooms would be frame worthy!
I was recently introduced to Pilgrim, a blog authored by the incredibly talented photographer, Paige Maitland. Paige has an amazing series where she photographs artists in their studios (don’t you love when creative people collaborate?) and last week she photographed Michelle Armas in her studio.
I’ve been a fan of Michelle’s work for a few years now and her blog is one of my daily reads so I was more than a little excited to get a peek inside her studio. I don’t know what’s more beautiful, Paige’s light drenched, ethereal photography, or that stack of abstracts…
I’m looking forward to seeing who Paige photographs next. Caitlin McGauley and Bella Foster would be on my short list. Whose studio would you like to peek inside?

This will probably make me seem like a prude, but ten years ago the idea of having a large framed nude in my home probably would have made me blush. To be fair to my younger self, ten years ago would put me in a dorm room at boarding school and I have to admit, I got a good laugh imagining one of these pieces mixed in with the Ralph Lauren and David Yurman ads I papered my walls with–nevermind what my dorm parents would have said!
I’d like to think that my taste in artwork has matured (although maybe not my sense of humor) and today I can’t think of anything more chic to add to my walls than one of Jenna Snyder-Phillips‘ nudes. I’ve seen her work repeatedly in the pages of Lonny (side note: Michelle Adams is leaving?? Whoa curveball!) but for some reason never clicked through to discover the artist. Most likely because of the fear of sticker shock. Don’t you hate falling in love with something you can’t have? Happens to me so often with artwork.
Fast forward to last night when I was researching another post and stumbled across Jenna’s website where I noticed a photo of J.Crew’s bridal boutique in her portfolio. The very same photo I included on my inspiration board for my site’s re-design. Ahh, serendipity!
I’ve already made a promise to myself that I will own one of Jenna’s pieces one of these days. I think it would be an amazing present to myself once I achieve something big. My first big interior design project, perhaps? Dream big!
I must have spent at least two hours last night perusing the online galleries of artist and textile designer, Lourdes Sanchez. Every time I thought it couldn’t get any better I’d open up a new gallery and fall in love all over again. Do you know how hard it was for me to only include six pieces in this post? Any modicum of editorial control went out the window.
I haven’t been this inspired by an artist in awhile. Her color combinations alone have me wanting to mix things up in my wardrobe and experiment with unexpected pairings. Check out her galleries and report back with your favorites. I won’t expect to hear back for at least a few hours!
