Cordy Ryman

Ready or not, the last days of summer are upon us. In Seattle that means draping ourselves in cozy layers while we’re enjoying that last summer ice cream cone before fall officially begins. The work of New York City born and bred Cordy Ryman, who I learned about at the Seattle Art Fair (which was a smashing success!), inspired this last summer hurrah mood […]

I used to have a series here called ‘never say never’. It basically addressed the fact that despite certain things we say we would never do in our own home, there are always exceptions to the rule. I believe my first post was regarding cowhide. So, here’s another one to add to the list. While […]

    This is a trend I haven’t quite understood and it still gives me the bad feeling of a creepy western bar or a ghost house when I see proud pictures of them hanging on real people’s walls. But I agree with you that these ones are beautiful. A little bit of glitter always makes the ugliness go away, right? 😛
    If I were you, I’d choose a mini elephant. Because of it’s shape, it wouldn’t look like an emblem or decorative cement even in a small size. And I believe, when the trend of horses and deers fades away like everything else does quickly, you can still enjoy your elephant (I’m considering this one pictured above), elegant and glamorous, feminine and classic.

The holidays may be just around the corner, but we’ve still got a whole month to celebrate fall, and I’ve been gathering some ideas on decor for a harvest dinner featuring my dad’s famous butternut squash ravioli that I’ve been craving lately. Then, inspiration hit me when going through some photos from a trip to […]

    Ohhhh wow I think I need a feather wall. Absolutely GORGEOUS! But on a smaller scale – how about within napkin holders or on place cards and/or menu?

    Hi Cassandra

    So excited to see our entryway on your blog! The piece is by the super talented installation artist Christina Watka (www.christinawatka.com). She currently has a solo show up at Voltage Art and Coffee with another AMAZING leaf piece.

    Hope to see you again when you are in Boston!

    Hi hi Cassandra (and others)!

    I’m so excited that you noticed the installation at Twelve Chairs! I’ve been following your blog religiously for a few years now 🙂

    That piece you love so much is actually a piece I designed and installed site-specific to their space. I have two other pieces in the shop, but I have to admit how partial I am to this one—I love found materials, ESPECIALLY lace.

    Glad you liked it!

    Seems tedious but fabulous. Meanwhile do you spray a coating on the leave to keep them from changing?

    i’m not sure if they put anything on the leaves, but it didn’t look like it! i think they started with fresher leaves and then let them dry in place!

    Wahhhh! Feathers…my weakness! That installation is so fabulous…I could see a gradient of color running from the ground up…such a festive feature although dusting could be such a pain!

    Peace. Love. LOL!

This is kind of space I’m willing my head to be in right now… Clear of clutter, absolutely fresh, and focused on the important things. Like bold wall decor. And leafy accents (whether gilded or recently plucked from the garden).  And great seating (even in the form of a miniature stool). *images via here, here […]

    These spaces are heavenly. Minimalist but not cold. I would feel more inspired in a place like this.

    Enjoy your day, C!
