John Robshaw for Duralee

Posted By Rebecca-NY | May 23, 2012 | 1 Comment | Category: Uncategorized

A good friend of mine recently brought my attention to John Robshaw’s collection for Duralee and after looking through the fabrics I have to say I’m slightly obsessed.  The textiles are stitched, woven, worn piqued, filled with gorgeous color, block printed patterns,  and have that oh so John Robshaw ethnic touch.  I thought I’d share my obsession for the moment and show you some of my faves below:

 

The grey and yellow combination is so soothing

citrine zebra – yes!

So soft and subtle yet the detail is divine

A perfect stitched geometric that will coordinate beautifully with florals and smaller prints

Great color!

A subtle blue paisely

Loving this combo of blues

A preppy touch

Aqua prints to die for

Indigo dots

The Valspar Color Project

Valspar has launched the first of three celebrity videos with Molly Sims which is part of their Valspar Color Project.  The project is to help raise money for Habitat for Humanity which is a non profit organization building low income housing for families in need.  Every time you view and/or share this video, Valspar will donate $1 to Habitat for Humanity to help each celebrity reach their goal of $100,000.  It’s that simple.  You get to see the behind the scenes footage of Molly Sims as she decorates her nursery for her first baby and donate to a great cause while doing so.  View, donate and share!  Who knew it could be that easy?

All About Color

Posted By Rebecca-NY | May 15, 2012 | 5 Comments | Category: Uncategorized

Abstract art seems to be the “it” thing these days and it’s hard to stay focused on just one artist when there are so many amazing talents out there like Reagan Geschardt.   Reagan and her husband Danny (who is also an artist) recently moved back to the NYC area from Naples, FL where they ran a very successful decorative arts business.  Reagan was trained in trompl l’oiel  murals and fine art  but has now started to focus on creating and selling her abstract works which are interpretations of her daily experiences.  Some of her current paintings study the interplay of color and light using water and landscapes and things that surround her.  The colors are magnificent and might be just what your room is missing.  For more information visit Reagan’s website here and find out about upcoming events so you can see her work in person!  Art is beautiful no matter how you look at it, but let’s be honest, it’s best in living color!

Danny Geschardt (Reagan’s husband) also sells his abstract paintings and these two seem to work well as a team!  See Danny’s work below:

Between the two of them I’d say there’s something here for everyone.  The colors are enough to make me forget about all the rain we’ve been getting lately.  So don’t let your home get too gloomy – it’s time to add some abstract color!
