I create each of my glass pieces and metalwork by hand in my studio in Orange County, California.

I design custom homes by day, and love to discuss all aspects of design.

Pinterest Picks: May 14

 


Here are a few of my recent favorites from my Pinterest feed. If you want to see the rest of my pins, check them out and follow me here.

1. Hotel Daniel in Vienna: Love the industrial vibe here that is tempered with high-end wood and a classy look.

2. Woman by Common Projects: I always go for a good wedge, and leather and wood are a favorite combination, especially when the woodgrain shows off nicely.

3. Uniform Wares by Six: This entire collateral line is beautiful. Six shows off the new watch line while keeping things clean and minimal.

4. Molecular Cuisine from ThinkGeek: I am often sucked into the science of food, and Molecular Gastronomy kits are the perfect way to dabble in this. The packaging of this kit is pretty nicely done, as well.

5. Femme Chair by Rik ten Velden: Designed using a single rope and sailor's knots, this chair is both simple and very textural.

6. Owl: By John Marsland - big thanks to sploit1058 for the source link! Wish I had a source for this (damn you, Tumblr!) - if you happen to come across it, please let me know.  Just love the contrast as well as the content in this piece.

Poster: The Birds

 

My husband Corey would tell you that I am always a sucker for black, white, and red graphics. From old constructivist work to modern pieces, they seem to have an impact I can't deny. I don't wear red, and rarely choose it for anything, but it seems I make an exception here.

 

This poster of Hitchcock's The Birds was created as a collaboration between my husband, Corey Holms and Marian Bantjes as part of the Now Showing project. The posters are still availbale for sale for only £35, but will only be available for a short time more. Snatch one up now if you're interested!

Pinterest Picks: Apr 20

 

It's been a crazy month, with a short vacation and me getting pieces ready to ship for Fab, and although I haven't been blogging much, I have been pinning! Here is a selection of some great stuff I found on Pinterest recently:

1. Carved stone basin: With grain and color that makes it look like wood, this is easy maintenance. I originally thought I was a marine grade wood piece, but either way, the shape is super.

2. Moss terrarium by themosserstore: If you've followed my blog here, you know I have a thing for terrariums. This one is a minimalist version that requires only a small amount of care. Great look for an end table, in a bookshelf, or in a grouping on the dining table.

3. Water bottle by Eva Solo: This bottle is made from BPA-free plastic (I prefer glass,) but the shape and the great loop handle in different colors makes this a winner.

4. Industrial barn door by Ochre: Combined with the polished concrete floors and clean modern furniture, this space looks pulled together and spare yet still very livable.

5. Amy Neunsinger photography for House Beautiful: I love everything about this. The photo itself is stunning with the light streaming in, the outdoor space is inviting with multiple seating areas, and the overall vibe is relaxing.

6. Sky High branding for Radisson Blu Hotel: I like the proportions and attenuated look of this type. Of course I was drawn to the image showing how the letterforms were constructed.
