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.

Favorite Pins Lately/ Pastel and Floral Color Bombing

Hey there. How’s your week going? Is the sunshine out where you are? It’s been steady here the last couple of days and, I’ll tell ya, it’s a mood booster. The colors, the flowers, the sky, the people, the air…they all have an extra kick of life, you know? I’ve been relishing the coming of Spring and the pastel palettes that organically flow from this time of year. Life is blooming and it’s delicious to witness. Next week I’ll be in the throes of the Spring/Summer collection photoshoot and, soon after, its launch in my shop. Keep an eye out for that ’cause I’ll also be sharing a new business endeavor at that time; which I’m excited about and I hope you will be too! For now, I’m prepping all things floral and a color story ripe for Springtime. Can’t wait to share it all with you soooooooooon… Until then, how about some lovely inspiration? I give to you my favorite pins, lately…   Happy hump day, friends! [ 1 / 2 / 3 / 4 / 5 ]

Color Crush / Rainbow Everything

I’m all about a good rainbow these days. Like dogs, any time I see a rainbow or rainbow colored anything it’s instant happiness. Go ahead, google the word…magical, isn’t it? I’m particularly fond of using multiple colors in home decor. But the tone needs to be balanced; not too busy or overwhelming. I want to step into the space and feel lighter, not overstimulated. These are some great examples of just that… Gold and rainbow utensils? Oh my gosh… And what’s life without rainbow dessert (recipe in credits below)… Plus this, because…so true. Hope you all enjoy a relaxing weekend. The world has been a doozy lately and I’m not backing down from helping as much as I can. But first, a Saturday spent by myself indoors baking cookies and taking naps. Love, Cath [ 1 / 2 / 3 / 4 / 5 ]

Favorite Pins / Vibrant Copper, Pink, and Yellow

Vibrant copper, pink, and yellow. These might just be my new favorite colors. Copper hair is a bold move, but I like it. And respect it. My friend, Meaghan, has naturally copper hair (I mean, who gets so lucky?!) and it suits her in every way. It’s smart, sexy, and awe-inspiring. Pair it with yellow + pink and there’s no losing. Though Meaghan veers more toward neutral territory, clothes-wise, I secretly want to dress her up in the colors you see here. She won’t ever let me (GAH, Meggy!) so I’m gonna have to pretend instead… How sweet are the paint dye swatches? They remind me of a summertime picnic scene down a country lane. And I’d wear this hairstyle in my fantasy… For the past few years I’ve been craving neutral/white bedroom decor with just a hint of soft color. But now, after seeing this bedroom, I’m kind of craving a kick in the color pants. And, you know, a pastel Lucky Charms cake. No big deal. What are your favorite colors lately? [ 1 / 2 / 3 / 4 / 5 ]

Into the week

Admittedly, I’m getting into this week a little later than usual. But let’s keep it rolling with this sassy little number. And, for the record, I’ve been proud of myself with the amount of color I’ve been adding to my wardrobe over the past few years. Don’t get me wrong, I always default to wearing black. But I never regret when I branch out into color every now and again. So,my new motto… Stay colorful, babe! Ya with me? [ via shoes off please ]
