Mod Moments in Palm Springs California

Modernism Week-It’s a thing in sunny Palm Springs California where refurbished Mid-Century homes are open to the public to tour, and quite frankly drool over…because their interiors are awesome and the architecture is truly amazing! Bold color, fake fur, pattern play, substrate mixing and fun furniture seems to be the standard in each home.

Paying homage to the great architects that turned Palm Springs into the Mid-Century Mecca it is today…are names like: Albert Frey of the Raymond Loewy House, Michael Black of the Shapiro House, E. Stewart Williams of the Frank Sinatra House and Richard Neutra of the Kaufman Desert House.

During Modernism Week, designers open up their homes for the public to view and this year we toured the Moroccan House, Maison a l’Orange, Hidden Frey House and the West Elm Pool House…each with a different sensibility and style, but all Mid-Century in their roots!

This Happened…AGAIN!

Well I guess the upside of Winter 2015 in NYC is that it’s a photographers paradise. Took this image tonight on the Upper Westside and it really looks like vintage NYC. It’s super cool how the snow camouflages the city and brings a softness to these street scenes! Black and White imagery is so beautiful as it helps create this timeless moment.

Typography Treasures

On my way to the press office at Heimtex in Frankfurt this morning I stumbled upon these vintage typography posters and could not resist sharing them! As a designer I just love finding these treasures that make me stop and think about design, color and creativity…no chaos here! My favorite is on the bottom left because the message is like a visual puzzle. Let me know which is your favorite and why.
