Rosemary Liss

I’ve been admiring the artwork by Baltimore’s Rosemary Liss for a while now. I love her ‘A Sacred Space’ series and her beautiful vision for each canvas–unexpected, moving and cohesive. Also, I find her use of color so compelling. “…(Rosemary Liss’) her new work is more fragmented to explore the anxiety of searching for a sense of belonging.” More HERE.

Ladies & Gentlemen Studio

I love one bajillion things from Ladies & Gentlemen Studio by Dylan Davis and Jean Lee–you may remember some of them from previous posts. Top of my list is the dreamy Round Maru Hand Mirror with a copper base and the Brass Aura Lights. I posted the L&G Ovis chair a few times and ‘grammed it while stalking pretty things at Woonwinkel here in Portland. If you’re in PDX–go to Woonwinkel downtown (935 SW Washington) and check it out! This beautiful chair really is somehow even more magnificent in person! You can also get their pretty Aura Chimes HERE at Anthro–online only. Find more Ladies & Gentlemen Studio HERE.

Wren

There are scads of pretty dresses from Wren right now. This first dress is so gorgeous–I love that the silk is festooned with embroidered gold sequins. The coral silk dress is a stunner, too. Sweet summer party dresses! Melissa always does a wonderful job. More HERE.
