1. Inspired By: Michael Anastassiades Lighting

    During one of my many morning Pinterest scrolling sessions I stumbled upon the beautiful work of Michael Anastassiades – a London-based product designer.

    He creates objects that are minimal, utilitarian and
    almost mundane, yet full of vitality one might not expect.

    These particular pieces were created in collaboration with FLOS, a leading manufacturer of contemporary and modern light fixtures. Aren’t they just stunning! So minimal, yet so freaking interesting. If you hop on over to Michael’s website, you see modern light fixtures paired with a little bit more rustic/historically classic background….perfection. I’m actually a big fan of combining the unexpected (old & new). Check out my Pinterest for more inspiration.

    It’s black friday!!! Woooop Woop. Haha. I don’t really indulge in the mall madness, but I do enjoy the holiday hustle and bustle. Wanted to drop in today with a fun inspiration post for those of you doing some online shopping. Trouvé Magazine is one of my favorite “in print” magazines (alongside other favs like Kinfolk, Sweet Paul, Collective Quarterly). It’s pages are filled with creative inspiration, food & city guides, artist interviews, shop visits, etc – all beautifully photographed and perfectly bound with high quality printing/paper.

    My client, The Citizenry is offering a FREE copy of the newly released (hard to find in stores) second issue of Trouvé Magazine with any purchase. You also get complimentary gift wrap & free shipping from today until December 2nd, so don’t hesitate too long ;) Head on over and shop my favorite items – The Zua Lamp, Light Cowhorn Tumblers & The La Brisa Throw. I’ve also added Issue Two to my Amazon wish list ;)

  3. Inspired By: Daniel Barbera Furniture Design

    Falling in love with a furniture brand doesn’t happen a lot for me. Usually I’m able to knit pick the shit out of a particular piece of furniture or “claim” that I could make it myself (which I usually can NOT). When I stumbled upon Daniel Barbera’s work, I was awe struck at how perfect each piece was and how I wouldn’t want to alter his pieces in any way. They are just stunning.

    I think what I love most about his work are the really simple pairings of materials (like wood and bronze) and the overall structures don’t have any additional frills, but are such statement pieces. Not to mention all the pieces are beautifully photographed in a lovely grainy way!  You can view more of his work at the link below. Also, if you love behind the scenes type shots as much as I do – view behind the shoot here.

    Hey there! I can’t really come up with any other excuse why I haven’t blogged a ton recently aside from the fact that I spend every waking hour on Instagram. Haha. No no. Just kidding. I do spend quite a bit of time browsing my favorite minimalist Instagram accounts and I find their eye for pairing things down very inspiring. I hope you can find a few new gals to follow!

    Let’s jump on the weaving bandwagon today and oooo and ahhh over the lovely brand, Brook&Lyn. I know that home weavings and macrame are making a resurgence in blog land and creative shops, but I can’t help but love it. I can remember sitting on the floor in my childhood home with string tied to the base of a dinning room chair, braiding and tying macrame knots into the world’s best friendship bracelets. Some trends will never get old!

    Brook&Lyn is a creative studio run by a husband and wife team. The brand was founded in 2009 and creates one of a kind weavings that embrace simplicity in pattern and color palettes. The team also dabbles in handmade wooden furniture pieces and home goods. A couple things to note…these two creatives take on custom commissioned work and have an amazing Instagram Feed!

    MNCQVQ (the year 1984 in french) is a French textile brand that is just killing it with originality and authenticity in their designs. They create printed square silk scarves that features hand drawn/painted artwork by creators Amelie Charroin and Marie Colin-Madan. The duo has been featured in many reputable fashion magazines such as ELLE, Refinery29, Mademoiselle, and more. 

    I love how the girls have stepped outside the box, yet still use some classic techniques on such a classic fashion item.

    Hello Veda House readers! This is Ana of Blog MilkI’m ecstatic to be here today and so thankful that Cassie invited me over. I recently found these beautiful lights designed by Basque Artist Martín Azúa. Martín gratuated in Fine Arts from the University of Barcelona. His project The Light Container has made my day today.  The idea of having a floating mass of light inside a metallic basket as a lamp in my home sounds and looks exiting. Don’t you think?

  8. Recent Work: Branding for The Citizenry (sneak peek)

    Hello lovely Thursday blog readers. I get to share something with you that I’ve just been bursting at the seams to talk about. At the end of last year, I was approached by Carly Nance, on of the co-founders of the soon to be launched The Citizenry brand. We spoke on the phone for hours those first few weeks, gushing over minimalist interior design, the sprit of travel and the ups and downs of running your own business. We connected like two peas in a pod. Soon I would find out that her business partner Rachel was just as giddy about everything as we were.

    Happy Friday everyone! Hope your week went well! If you haven’t entered the California Naturels GIVEAWAY, be sure to do so. There is some really great skincare products to choose from.

    Today, I’ve got a fun brand to share with you. When browsing around for a key pieces to add to my wardrobe for the whole wedding month, I stumbled upon the clothing and accessories line Oysho. I loved how each piece has a hand made quality to it with focus on natural materials. Unfortunately, Oysho doesn’t ship to the United States!!
