can you be addicted to buying art? because i think i am…or maybe i’m addicted to shopping (that’s me inadvertently admitting i’m a shopaholic but let’s not linger on that for too long). i’ve begun settling into my new place which means i’ve started the “let’s make this house a home!” phase. i’m filling all my blank walls with photos, prints, macramé, mirrors -did i leave out anything? i’m also trying to tackle how to hang this beautiful yet enormously heavy painting my dear friend made but i’m renting and the thought of drilling holes into the wall makes me break into a sweat. anyways…i think my art addiction began when i went to austin a couple months ago. my brother and i stumbled upon this store that supported local crafters and artists and i found (narrowed it down to) two prints that i absolutely had to take home with me. since then i’ve been on the hunt for some cool pieces for my new place, which is what brings me to tutticonfetti! i just recently discovered the talented marta colomer of tutticonfetti and i can’t get enough of her illustrations. i love seeing these characters like this and i can’t wait to welcome jimi to his new home!
i’m a big fan of libby vanderploeg’s work. my favorite corner in my room is home to one of her pieces from her collaboration with dusty rose vintage. libby has collaborated yet again but this time with music writer steve wide. together they released bowie a to z: the life of an icon from aladdinsane to ziggy stardust.- an alphabetical look at the extraordinary life of david bowie. i can’t wait to get my hands on this book. you can order your copy here.
