Monday


A quiet studio corner to start your Monday with a little inspiration. Have a good one.

Stylish Playfulness


A Finnish graphic design couple show that having great taste doesn't preclude having a mischievous sense of humour as well — their stylish home has a playful touches everywhere. So fun — that plaster hippo head is especially awesome. From here on Avotakka.

Bookshelf


Just finished The Private Lives of the Impressionists by Sue Roe — great read & highly recommended, especially for struggling artists. From the description on Amazon: "Sue Roe's colorful, lively, poignant, and superbly researched biography, The Private Lives of the Impressionists, follows an extraordinary group of artists into their Paris studios, down the rural lanes of Montmartre, and into the rowdy riverside bars of a city undergoing monumental change. Vivid and unforgettable, it casts a brilliant, revealing light on this unparalleled society of genius colleagues who lived and worked together for twenty years and transformed the art world forever with their breathtaking depictions of ordinary life." So inspiring. I especially liked finding out more about Berthe Morisot and Mary Cassatt's lives and contributions, too.
