Highlighting

There are so many talented people out there, with wonderful blogs. This past week, I decided to highlight a few of my favorites, and hope to repeat this tradition each week. Maybe I'll do 3 instead of 7? Here is a taste of a few of my favorite tid-bits from the following blogs I enjoyed last week, but really I enjoy, all the time. Check them out!


Ali Loves Curtis: Ali does a great job of writing these creative little lists, full of brilliant ideas or links to special spots. They are quirky, fun, and informative. I enjoyed this recent post about Youngna Park. What a lovely shot!


Armas Design: Michelle is a graphic designer and illustrator, who shares her observations and inspirations about art and design. Check out her etsy store full of her awesome illustrations. About a month or so ago, she made me aware of the more clean and sophisticated European collection at the Gap - (online only). Very chic.



Spray Glue: Gary, a designer/trend researcher shares hip ideas from a South African perspective. I had to do a double take when he recently posted this amazingly packaged olive oil from La Amarilla de Rona designed by Phillippe Starck. 



Fashion is Spinach: I think she states it very well on her blog, that she focuses on interesting design, quirky finds, and personal style. Gotta have a little fashion in life. Ahh Paris, this post was so fabulous.



Brilliant Asylum: Through an interior designer lens, she shares inspiring spaces to dwell, re-create and dream about. I connected with her recent posting about maps, I have always been in love with maps, and have a little collection.  This room below was designed by David H. Mitchell.


SwissMiss:  I am overwhelmed by the abundant design ideas and creativity of the swiss behind the miss.  She shares oodles and oodles of inspiration daily. I loved the book called Uncredited that she just posted that references the best sequences of opening titles.  


The Scoop: Emily and Laura tag team it up at orangebeautiful -where they make handmade books and boxes, letterpress cards and stationery etc... Through the scoop they share what they like in good taste and with a little flare. Here is Laura's living room which was entered in the recent Domino contest. Love et.

Ali loves Curtis is one of my favorite daily treats. I feel like I get to go on a virtual field trip every time I click on her site. Plus, she's incredibly sweet and nice.

I love the idea of highlighting your favorite sites!
