Blue Plate Special

Personally,  I never tire of "Blue & White".  I was just surfing the 'net, I've forgotten why now, and came across this photo of an old canvas theatre backdrop used as "art" in a residence.  I love the juxtaposition of the old English plate design against the Modern chair, the scale is fantastic and fanciful... 
How much fun is this??

Photographer David LaChapelle "Burns Down the House", Among oth Stories

If you missed the New York Armory Show last month, but are heading to Brussels, catch Art Brussels to see the remarkable Photographer's "Seismic Shift". This piece by Mr. LaChapelle combines his unique hyper-realistic aesthetic with social message. I find that it is also an ode to Jeff Koons and Damien Hirst, as you can see below.

I was also intrigued by the vibrant composition in the image "McQueen Burning Down the House", a sure bet on combining fashion and celebrity with a little "art history" thrown in. Magical.

Clear Viewing Sparkles

The New York Times Magazine
These clear crystal-like Spring accessories caught my eye. It makes it so easy to color coordinate.  They're almost diamond-like, always a girl's best friend.  We can all agree that diamonds give a beautiful accent to any outfit.

 Speaking of accent, this Diablo Table by Plexi-Craft will give a chic sparkle to any space.

Plexi-Craft uses acrylic or plexi to reinterpret classic or traditional designs.  Plexi-Craft constantly provides a concurrence of old and new.


We have also used Plexi-Craft for many successful "custom" projects, so keep them in mind when thinking "clearly".

"Roots" Florist resides in Salt Lake City

"Roots" Salt Lake, Utah

 I recently dropped in to visit "Roots", a wonderful florist in Salt Lake City, housed in the wonderful Warehouse District. I was so taken by this place that I almost considered opening a satellite office here! The owner has a wonderful "eye", everything in this large space was attractive. Unable to carry fresh flowers on the plane, I managed to score new leashes and collars for two pups for their spring wardrobe. You can find them at
