philip kwame apagya

i just came across these beautiful, bold and saddening works by philip kwame apagya and thought you might find them interesting. formal portraits set against commissioned painted backgrounds...the ghana airport, a new home entertainment center or a metropolitan skyline. totally surreal and beautiful. wish i could see them in person.

Weekend!: sister visit, sept.09

earlier this month my beautiful sister flew across the country to spend 3 sweet days with me. some of my favorite moments:

chinatown fruits

san gennaro strangeness

whitney, i've been waiting for you!

i wouldn't be upset if this table + chairs made its way into my kitchen

cereal milk as dessert: lowbrow-brilliant

endless inspiration at ABC

pink pillow hill

sister and the sh*tty umbrella

remnants of fashion's night out at kate spade, 5th ave

nobu pineapple martinis top off a superperfect day

mmm rock shrimp

limos are ugly but i love the blur of this photo

(L-R): maggie gyllenhaal, reese witherspoon, hunky jake gyllenhaal, peter sarsgaard, mama gyllenhaal at the DUMBO flea. no biggie.

thisclose to buying a vintage picture book

beautiful wall

furniture shopping on the sidewalk is my fave


rooftop fireworks

perfect ending to a perfect weekend #1: clinton st bakery biscuit sandwich with tomato jam

perfect ending to a perfect weekend #2: clinton st bakery blueberry pancakes

nesting: navajo floors, sept.09

the new bedroom floor is missing a little something. at this point the room is made up of dark navy, browns, creams, deep orange and an exposed brick fireplace...non-working, sadly. i'd like to keep with the color scheme while adding some richness, texture and pattern to our newfound 'sitting corner'.

i'm thinking a navajo rug might be just the ticket!

DO: Live on Greenwood Road, sept.09

more beautiful inspiration for the homebody in all of us....

this is exactly the spot where the dog will lay

amazing plank floors, a warm glow and velvety cushions

love the deep blues, whites and earthy browns 'n greens offsetting the industrial feel of stone floors and dark walls

beautiful simplicity but i'd probs throw in a splash of citron or satsuma

wow. heavenly.

your own private zen garden. a firepit would be lovely out here.

Autumn Adventure #1: Storm King Art Center, Sept.09

Thank you Brantalones for spreading the word on Storm King Art Center! This Mountainville, NY indoor/outdoor exhibition space quickly jumped to the top of my to do list! Weekend roadtrip anyooone? Frolicing in the wavefields and picnicing among the abstract steel sculptures would make the perfect Fall mini-trip.

DO: Live on Mildred's Lane

Fashion designer and artist J.Morgan Puett is my hero, and Mildred's Lane, her rustic home and artists colony in northeastern PA, is what my dreams are made of. There isn't an inch of space that hasn't been considered, beautifully styled and filled with collections of interesting things.

cat nap central

love the contrasting white floor and furniture against the glossy black walls and ceiling. warm and cool. clean and cozy.

even the inside of her fridge is a thoughtfully presented work of art

waking up in this bed would make every day feel like vacation
