CASA ALMACÉN

Came across this amazing woman and company that is helping in keeping the art of fabric dyeing alive and true. Mariana Pussacq is an artist and architect that in 2010 decided to develop a unique color palette of over 100 colors on hand dyed herself on fabrics such as velvet, linen, canvas, cotton, panama and tussore. Mariana used her fabrics in her interior design projects and not long after began sharing her colors/fabrics with other designers. In 2012 her work was recognized internationally.

What is also impressive about this company is that it is housed in a 1924 cotton mill in  Jauregui, Lujan a province in Buenos Aires called, ‘The Flandria’. It was originally directed by Julio Steverlynck in 1928. He used techniques from his country of origin, Belgium which quickly turned that rural province into a textile mecca. Mariana has resurrected this factory and instilled new life into it while respecting its past. Since inception she has grown from a palette of 100 to over 148 colors and has expanded from just fabrics to a clothing line.

PIERCE & WARD

The recent reveal of Lily Aldridge (Model) and Caleb Followill’s (Musician- Kings of Leon) Nashville, Tennessee home via Architectural Digest  is very homie and in a great way! It is decorated in an eccentric style, though I am not always fond of  that particularly look I like how the fun duo Pierce & Ward have decorated it. Louisa Pierce and Emily Ward are the cool female duo behind Pierce & Ward and the extension of their personalities makes their interiors unique, vibrant and stylish. I want to be friends with them just based on their about description.

NATIONAL GALLERY OF IRELAND

To commemorate St. Patrick’s Day, here is the newly renovated National Gallery of Ireland by Heneghan Peng Architects. HP Architects were chosen for this six year renovation project after having been recognized for their work on the Grand Egyptian Museum and the Palestinian Museum. They successfully addressed the circulation issues the gallery was having, unearthed windows that were bricked for decades bringing in much needed light, as well as introducing light into buildings via new modern skylights. They have done a true job of preserving the past and beautifully introducing the new.

MARTHE ARMITAGE

Let me tell you how I learned about the wonderful artist Marthe Armitage…

I am a fan of Landscape Artist Miranda Brooks (post about her work coming soon) and while searching, a Vogue article featuring her Brooklyn home popped up.Being nosy I had to check it out. I fell in love with the light blue wallpaper that was showcased in her daughter’s room. I decided to do some research on the person or company that produced such a lovely print. That is when I came across and learned about the very talented Marthe Armitage.

She is a British woman of 86 years, who has been hand printing wallpaper since the 50s and has only recently been recognized for her work in the last 10 years!!  Marthe hand draws all of her designs, she cuts her designs into lino blocks and then uses a lithographic printing press to create her custom wallpaper. All of this is done in her studio/garage with the help of her daughter.

Her work is classic yet modern and works well in many different settings.
