Art Crush / Children’s Art and Play Room Inspiration

The other day I was scrolling through the ol’ Pinterest and saw the above image pass on my screen (all the color…and that light fixture!). Seeing art and craft spaces for kids never fail to reignite my love for designing inspiring and creative children’s rooms. This is top on my list for next wave company expansion…Ugh, I love this stuff so much. To positively influence a child’s experience with safe, comforting, welcoming, and uplifting materials is a dream. And these rooms only further fueled that passion… I’m digging the organization and spectrum of colors, the natural night, and the charming display of artwork… Pretty wonderful, huh? Plus, ideas for creating an art and craft space for kids. See more of these darling rooms here + here + here + here.

Art Crush / Yayoi Kusama at The Broad

The Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama is one fascinating human. In 1977, she voluntarily admitted herself into a Tokyo hospital where she writes poems and writes stories; living and working from there to this day. On the occasion, Kusama continues to conceptualize and create always highly regarded installations in the world’s most reputable museums. The Broad is exhibiting her Infinity Mirrors until January 1, 2018 and I.Want.To. Go. Here’s some background on the exhibit, “Yayoi Kusama: Infinity Mirrors will provide visitors with the unique opportunity to experience six of Kusama’s infinity rooms—the artist’s most iconic kaleidoscopic environments—alongside large-scale installations and key paintings, sculptures and works on paper from the early 1950s to the present, which contextualize the foundational role the concept of infinity has played in the artist’s work over many decades and through diverse media. The traveling exhibition marks the North American debut of numerous new works by the 88-year-old artist, who is still actively creating in her Tokyo studio. These include large-scale, vibrantly colored paintings and her most recent infinity room, All the Eternal Love I Have for the Pumpkins, 2016.” Catch the #yayoikusama feed on Instagram to see how incredible it looks! Wow wow. Top photo: Oh Joy!
