Happy new year! I am excited for 2010! I am working on a new website and I will be transferring my blog over to it. I am also working on a big personal project that I am hoping to unveil within the year. It is really exciting to be working on something that I am so passionate about and I can't wait to share it with everyone! In the meantime here are some photos of my holiday season.
Thanksgiving was filled with wonderful food such as my grandmothers 'fruit pizza' are my mother used to call it.
My sister graduated from college!
I went to a flea market in Tennessee with my sister and found this amazing lamp for $5! I am still searching for a shade though, better get on that
Went to New Hampshire for Christmas and hung out with my sister and her dogs
My Christmas tree at home!
Don't forget about Pacha!
She turned just turned 4!

"After-images occur when the eyes had a concentrated burst of a single colour for a period of time. It triggers the optic nerve to create a brief flash of its complementary opposite, so fleeting it hardly ever registers. Ever wondered why surgical scrubs and operating theatre textiles are blue-green? It's the complementary color of blood red and, because the optic nerve recognizes the complementary colour when they look up, it prevents the surgeons getting an after-image when they look away from the open wound."
from "Chromatic Scale" in the newest issue of Selvedge
Color is crazy!

Raw color is visual research project about vegetables and their colors. Vegetables are purified to their raw color and then categorized on cards, the most intense colors are then made into ink cartridges to make prints. In this series (C) = Red Cabbage, (M) = Beetroot and (Y)= Pumpkin.

I am really excited to attend AT Offline New York Design Meetup tomorrow. This months speaker is Christiane Lemieux in of DwellStudio I am a big fan of DwellStudio's modern graphic aesthetic. I had popped into their sample sale that was happening Memorial Day weekend in Soho but sadly came out empty handed which was ok by me because I actually already own a Duvet of theirs that I bought two years ago when I moved into my apartment and I still love to pieces. I am really looking forward to hear Christiane speak candidly about how they got their start and how they have grown their business especially since I remember when it was much smaller and they didn't have all of the partnerships that they do now. If you are in the area you should come on out! Everytime I go I always bump into two (or three or four...) people that I know. I guess that the design world is pretty small after all!

A couple of months ago I got an email from Brittany asking me about the DIS Textile Design Program that I did two summers ago. I've been following her blog ever since and it looks like she finally arrived in Copenhagen and I am excited to relive Copenhagen and DIS all over again vicariously through her blog!
Speaking of blogs I stumbled upon this one this morning while through flickr. All of the photos are super organized by type of design and then time period and I spent a ridiculous amount of time browsing through a good chunk of them this morning. Check it out over here
Here are a few of my favorites
Madame Raisin 1925
Christopher Dresser 1876
I absolutely love this color palette
More Sonia Delaunay
Ok so I really like Sonia Delaunay
Last Sonia Delaunay I swear
