I have the happy problem of too many interesting posts to write-what with a visit in early March to the Armory Show (NYC's premier art show) and last Thursday spent at the Architectural Digest Home Show--I can't wait to share a most surprising new trend. Add that to my duties this year as a board member of National Landmark, the Bartow-Pell Mansion Museum, which is celebrating its centennial of being saved from destruction. I am co-chairing what will be a fabulous gala on May 10--a moonlight ball whose "look" is being designed by Jennifer Mehditash of Decaporter (look for details everywhere with the hashtag moonlight ball. I hope you will join us) Plus I have just taken on some new writing responsibilities for a hot new brand featured in the New York Times on March 20--you will be the first to know when one of my posts goes live on their site. You can see why I feel like each day needs 48 hours instead of 24.
BUT.There have been several things in recent days that show that the things I write about here on Decor Arts Now, like Design Dictionary, Designer Who's Who, Art School, etc., are not just about design and art history, but are really about design and art RIGHT NOW! Here are some current updates to some recent posts.
1. Domino's Spring 2014 issue (loved it!) featured the very bold home decor of this artist featured in Art School.
2. Cozy throws available at Herman Miller on April 21 were designed by America's first "happy decorator" for Braniff Airlines. Thus far, I have only seen these neutral colors via the New York Times. but the Times also reports that the throws will be available in teal/aqua and orange/fushcia (squeal).
5. It's on the tip of your tongue--what is the architectural term for the subject of this print I spotted at the Armory Show?
Enjoy the rest of the weekend! I will be doing a little of this....
