Katie Kime’s Home and Fashion Brand’s Creative Workspace

Katie Kime, Inc. is a print and color-based brand for home and fashion and, I’ll tell ya, the company’s workspace- featured on A Beautiful Mess– is on point with their brand. Light-filled eye candy, it’s a creative dream… This whole setup has kicked my mind into a new workspace fantasy. See the space in its entirety over on A Beautiful Mess! Can’t wait to recreate my office and workspace for the next level of business. Onto a moodboard to get the ball rolling… p.s. Have you heard of Moodboard? I just found out about it and I’m about to get lost in it. Like Pinterest but with more shareable design perks. Worth a peek.

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!

Postmodern Art Studio and Workspace Interior Design

Really vibing off the postmodern-influenced design of Masquespacio’s  Valencia workspace. They kept on-brand with their interiors and it’s total eye candy. Bold hues and contrasting materials combo seal the deal, don’t you think? From De Zeen, “Our brand is composed of seven different colours that can change for each client’s presentation,” co-founder Christophe Penasse told Dezeen. “In our studio we applied the most trendy colours of the moment. The idea is to change colour palette every year according to what’s trendy.” See more here!

Art Crush / The Multi-Textured Art of Illustrator Naomi Elliott

Totally feeling the simplicity of Brooklyn based designer and illustrator Naomi Elliott’s multi-textured art. Her process involves combining stencils with hand drawn elements to create a rich final image and I’m really digging it. Feels calming and somehow reassuring. The women seem to hold their own, don’t they? Plus, super stylish… Check out more of her work here!

Art Crush / The Color Factory Exhibit in San Francisco

Have you heard about The Color Factory? It’s a new pop-up exhibit in San Francisco that runs through the month of August (and I just heard it sold out! But word is they’re now extending its run into September…). You guys, you have no idea how bummed I am to be missing this. If only I timed my trip to align with getting a chance to explore this hopped up color haven. Oh does San Francisco know how to inspire. Sigh. This from their site, “This two-story interactive exhibition celebrates color and material, featuring work by some of our favorite artists and collaborators: Jacob Dahlgren, Tom Stayte, Geronimo Balloons, Tosha Stimage, Stanton Jones, Andrew Neyer & Andy J. Miller, Carissa Potter, Jessica Hische, Rebecca Wright, Randi Brookman Harris, Leah Rosenberg and Erin Jang. Lose yourself in 10,000 colored ribbons, sink into a giant yellow ball pit, catch some rainbows, smell colorful memories, and taste a spectrum of treats from our favorite stops in San Francisco. The pinks will delight you, the blues will amaze you, the yellows might make you hungry.” And from Architectural Digest, “Color Factory is home to 15 site-specific works by artists and creatives, with a mix of local and global talents. “Our goal was that each installation would meet three criteria,” says Ferney. “It would be conceptual, [be] beautiful and photogenic, and be an experience you couldn’t get anywhere else.” Some rooms focus on a single shade, such as Bay Area artist Tosha Stimage’s assemblage of orange objects and British artist Tom Stayte’s violet selfie installation, while others celebrate the full color spectrum. Jang created a variety of rainbow spaces, from a plaid mural to the striped reception room.” San Francisco friends, please go and gush about it to me, so I can pretend I was there too. Yes? Sigh.
