Can we talk about…

Gallery walls?

Thanks to Apartment Therapy, I’ve been returning to these photos on the daily while my roommate and I are deciding how to decorate the wall behind our couch. 

Image

This way just seems much cooler than one expensive huge art piece. AND you can hand-make the frames (OR JUST USE WASHI TAPE, THE TAPE OF THE GODS GRAPHIC DESIGNERS) or even have your friends make the art. Not only is the project affordable, but it can also be more meaningful than buying some obscure surrealist painting to impress your pompous, art-lover friends.

Screw your friends!

 

MAKE A GALLERY WALL.

I love this muted color scheme; especially the rugged, open cement walls.

Can we talk about…

The blog Where I See Fashion?

Literally I haven’t been checking a website as often as I do this one since I found Designlovefest two years ago.

 How does someone even do this? Her ability to pair things and see fashion in the most unusual places is uncanny and absolutely brilliant.

I don’t know who the girl is, but she’s a fashion design student from Milan. She doesn’t use her own images, either. If anything, she might use photoshop to get better colors.

She started the blog just because she felt the need to do something with all the inspiring images she found on Tumblr.

“Sometimes a fashion picture reminds me instantly of something and I go look for it, sometimes it’s a random picture that makes me think of an outfit or editorial.”

“Occasionally it happens that by chance I see two pictures near each other on my dashboard or in a random blog that perfectly go together. Also I have A LOT of photos that I saved on my computer because I found them interesting, it’s like my personal archive and I use it a lot to make matches.”

Can you imagine searching for hours through your archives of images to find that one picture you vaguely remember seeing two months ago from a random vogue photoshoot?

Like, kill me. That’s crazy.

This girl is literally superhuman.

To finish, my ultimate favorite. You should seriously bookmark this girl, she is a constant source of inspiration.

Consultant, writer, curator, co-founder and creative director of Grey Area, a contemporary art hubble — an “undefined space between art and design where art is made functional and the functional is made art.”

Cool, right?

Well, she’s cool, and so is The Coveteur’s coverage of her Brooklyn home (and Grey Area’s headquarters). 

Image

Overalls? Check. Black and white heels? Checked. Crop tops? Check.

We’ll take one of each, thanks!

We’re swooning over this babydoll dress.

We’re in love.
