town & country: kelly wearstler

Look who is on the cover of January's Town & Country looking super fab!

Inside there is an interview about her favorite things, and lots of pictures of her sons and her designs. She talks about her love of:

wallpaper: 'so much more depth than paint'
giraffes: 'they're so graceful, and I love the pattern on their fur'
art: 'i still go to thrift stores when I'm shopping for art'
fashion: 'it's all about breaking your habits"
travel must-haves: 'my sketchbook and my UV-blocking parasols'
musuems: 'centre pompidou in paris...there's nothing else like it anywhere'
diet: '80% of what you look like is what you put in your mouth'
life philosophy: 'take risks. you can't get anywhere in life unless you do'

Don't forget to check out her new book, Hue.

garden party

garden party by walrus studio on

I created this image on my new favorite website, Polyvore. I was really inspired by the below image from Vogue. I love the magnolias, the avocado green with crisp white, the tufted white benches. It makes me want to have a chic little garden party of my own!

design hero

We are eagerly awaiting the new book by our Design Hero, Kelly Wearstler to come out tomorrow! Since the entire world was copying her style, she has reinvented herself and has a whole fresh new look now. Bravo to that. Will her new 80's vibe be as trendy, aka saleable, as the Hollywood Regency look she got us all hooked on? Only time will tell.

The new Fendi ads are moody, captivating, dramatic...with a cool vampire vibe. Great corset dresses. Oh, and Jessica Stam is amazing!

If you are looking for Halloween decor that is more stylish than spooky, look no further!

Then serve them some Halloween cupcakes on these darling plates!

Finish off with some customized zebra and skull serving accessories.

I'm looking forward to the new release on October 6th from the Parisian band Air. If you are not familiar with them, they had a cool chill and moody sound, and have collaborated several times on soundtracks with movie director (and walrus icon) Sofia Coppola. Although we hear her new movie, set to release in 2010, will feature songs by another French band, Phoenix. (The front man also happens to be her baby daddy.) Either way, we love these 2 bands.Sofia Coppola & Thomas Mars
