Boutiquey online design shops are pretty hit or miss. It can be hard to find a good one that is consistently well curated. I've been following The Citizenry for a while and am really impressed with this company. They sell hand-made products sourced from around the world made by real artisans.
When I start a new project it's always so much fun sourcing stuff and putting together a concept. I can see it all come together in my head and it's exciting! One of the more difficult parts of this process is presenting the concept and furniture in a way that will let the client "see" things as I imagine them...
So much has changed since the first post I wrote about this back in December! To start, I sold that desk like the next week. The green color wasn't bright enough, too muddy which didn't feel good.
I've been in love this idea of "a tub in the shower" for a while. I first did it for a prospective client years ago when I got the chance to come up with some unconventional layouts (I dug up those plans from 2009, see below) and then a few years later I read an article on the 407 East 75th Street Carriage House in NYC and I finally got to see "a tub in the shower" in real life.
My lovely friend April Walters connected me with St. Jorge Cafe in San Francisco so I could have a sweet little art show at their gorgeous space. This was a year ago and I thought "hey that's plenty of time to develop a whole new body of work!"
I discovered this Brooklyn based artist through a Homepolish article and immediately fell in love with his work. It's all about the details! The little dotted lines that outline the homes, the solid colors against the textured hillside, the subtle shadowing and interesting way things feel stacked and precariously laid out.
