Photography: Photos from Iceland

No, I didn’t go to Iceland. My sister and brother-in-law did a few years ago, and I have been hanging on to these photos they took for quite a while.¬†It’s about time I share them.

Every time I look at travel photos, I get the urge to start planning my next vacation. This month I’ve been to Halifax and North Carolina (photos will come soon, I promise), but I’m already eager to get away again!

 

Art: Black & White

I currently have two large canvases leaning against my office wall waiting for me to¬†paint. My parents commissioned me. (Can I pretend it’s a real art gig?). While¬†I’m not quite ready to paint them (lack of free time as of late), I am ready to share some of the interesting pieces¬†art I’ve been eyeing lately.

There’s more black than white in most of these pieces,¬†and¬†I love how different they are from one another. The “top secret” piece is so amusing (to me, anyway).

Design: Dalmatian Dots

No, I’m not getting a dog.¬†But I do think dalmatians are beautiful,¬†and¬†I love how¬†dalmatian dots inspire art and¬†interior design.

Art: The Diver

I spotted a version of the photograph below on One King’s Lane a while back. Although I was too late for the sale, I keep coming back to stare at the image. It’s thrilling, calm, fun, and scary all at the same time. What do you think?

I hope everyone is having a great week. I’ll be sharing photos from NYC as soon as I finish uploading them! I did post a few on Instagram, if you’d like to have a look. I hadn’t been to Grand Central Station in a few years, so I went a little photo crazy in there. Such a gorgeous (and very busy) place!
