Inspired: The Makers Project

Happy Friday everyone! Hope your week went well!

I don’t know about you but I love to witness people’s creative process. I like to see how an artist creates… how does it start? What does their space look like? What kind of tools do they use? I’m a bit nosy that way. So, when I came across this amazing photography project by Jennifer Causey, I had to share it with you. The project is titled – “The Makers Project” and it visually documents the creative process of artists, jewelers, ceramicists, bakers, florists and many other amazing artisans! I could spend all day looking at these beautiful and intriguing photographs.

Here are some shots showing the work of  talented Brooklyn based jeweler,  Jennifer Sarkilahti of Odette Jewelry

Fascinating right? Now be warned, the site is addictive so make sure you have a cup of something warm and a little time to explore. Enjoy!

Also…go check out Odette’s website, Jennifer’s creations are truly gorgeous! Drool…I mean see below….

Have a fantastic weekend.

I heart this space.

Happy Thursday…Friday is almost here.

I couldn’t wait to post pics of this simply stunning living and dining room! This masterpiece was created by The Brooklyn Home Company. They have some serious talent. Enjoy this little peek inside one of their projects but to see more check out their portfolio.

If a gorgeous French woman married a famous explorer this is what their house would look like…

To me, it’s such a unique and lovely blend. Rustic and elegant. Refined but yet, natural. It’s rare I see a room where I love every element! I love the dark leather chair paired with the light linen couch. I love the naturalist prints and wildlife elements. I love the cream moldings and those mirrors. Oh man, those mirrors make me crazy. I love the way the glass and brass tables add a touch of sparkle and light. I could go on and on…and I do…

I seriously love this place, I mean how perfect is that gorgeous French chair next to the rustic stump table?  And all the crystal decanters, they add such glamor…don’t even get me started on the wide plank, mocha wood floors…

The dining is also so lovely. The artwork is playful without being over the top and I want those chairs and the bench and the table.

You know what, why don’t I just move in?

Excuse the rambling…I am just so struck by this place.

Okay, deep breath…

What are your favorite design styles?

I heart Canvas

Just discovered a new home design store named Canvas, that opened in New York City’s SoHo neighborhood. Their goods are stunning. Simple, modern and timeless.

Here’s the big plus – their items are sustainable, ethically sourced and many are created by artisans in developing countries.  Canvas’ founder, Andrew Corrie, sits on the Aid to Artisans Board  – an amazing non-profit organization leading a handmade revolution, while supporting artists and strengthening communities around the world! You gotta love that.

Check out the eye candy…

I need this chair. Seriously, I do.

So beautiful, right? And good for the planet! It’s a win-win!

Have a fabulous Friday.
