i may have gotten a little wacky with this round of new & noteworthy, but hey what’s life without a little frivolity now and then? not that any of these fine objets d’art don’t serve some urgent purpose or another? fluffy pink artwork, girls in trees, beach blankets — it’s all very important stuff. do read on.
2. i find just the cover of taschen’s albert frey book divine, but i’d look inside, wouldn’t you? On a visit to Palm Springs, the architect fell under the desert spell and spent the rest of his career nurturing the consonance of architecture and nature; 3. pool party!!!! you need a beach towel if you’re going and this one will make a big splash; 4. what in the world, you may ask, would i do with a sweet ceramic green cone? well, you’d hang your baubles upon it, that’s what; 5. shaped a little bit like something from the deep blue sea, thus i give you the ‘Shelly’ Round Velvet Pillow. you’re welcome.
7. artist Leah Reena Goren’s quirky Bathers Art Print is just what we all need to remind ourselves it’s time to hit the beach, girlfriends!; 8. That’s right: women in trees — a book of vintage photographs discovered on flea market excursions alerted collector Jochen Raiss to this phenomenon, which was remarkably popular between the 1920s and 1950s yet never made into a book—until now. who knew?; 9. okay, maybe not wacky but necessary: this black tote was woven by hand in a small village of Orneta in Northeastern Poland, a region famous for crafting the highest quality string bags. so we need one; 10. put a pompom on it. well, if you do i’m likely to be a sucker for you, pretty pink Diya Spotted Fringe Pillow.
11. wow, how i love the Mikkel Throw designed by Kristine Five Melvær. those pretty colors just speak for themselves and they say “wrap me up!”; 12. who wouldn’t love to take a bath with some pink champagne soap from that dynamic design duo, wary meyers? no one!.
