New Inspiration

I have been working on my floor slowly over the summer but in the past few weeks I have been noticing more black and white patterns in my Sunday paper. Not the black and white of the newsprint but the kind of black and white that reminds me of my floor. Here is an ad by MAXALTO:

   From the Valentino site, I learned that the Creative Directors are  Maria Grazia Chiuri & Pierpaolo Piccioli .  I took a look at the  Valentino Instagram  and found that Chiuri & Pierpeolo's collection was inspired by this illustration by  Joseph Larkowsky . His illustration below:

Larkowsky was in turn inspired by Emilie Flöge, a fashion designer and business woman whose style fell squarely in the Wiener Werkstãtte

This adventure was totally unexpected and fun. It is similar to the learned new word that you seem to read everywhere after learning it...I am finding inspiration in so many new places. Now back to my floor. I am almost out of duck tape...

She was also a muse for Gustave Klimt, also hashtagged by Larkowsky--a nod to both Klimt and Flöge.

Thank you for the lovely feature Brett! Everyone check out Brett's new site called The Brettorium Creativity Emporium. He travels the internet trying to find artists and designers whose work he love, love, loves but who may have not received a ton of recognition for their work. He also takes really wonderful photos.

check out this vinyl decal from lunule designed by the talented susan rowe harrison:

i think wall decals are a great way to decorate a child’s room. these are maroon and come in a set of 3. the elephant stands proudly at 5 1/2 inches wide by 6 inches high. put them on a wall, or to customize furniture, trash can, book jacket, or on mat board to frame. what a great idea. when you get a chance, make sure to travel through susan’s collection. isn’t she amazing?



So, thank you Brett.
