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.

SUMMER VIBES

Summer vibes seems suiting for me as of present. I recently graduated with my Master’s in Interior Architecture and I have been taking life easy ever since, at least for the summer. I am going to fully enjoy these summer vibes and then be back on the grind come Fall. I will be taking advantage of the weather, late mornings, tanning, spending time near water, traveling and completely relaxing. Not to say that I will not be working on design related projects but they will strictly be for personal progress, adding them to my portfolio. Wanting to improve on some skills and be prepared for interviews.

HOPE YOU ARE ENJOYING YOUR SUMMER!

MONSE

I came across the brand MONSE today and am blown away. Every piece is amazing on its own and when paired together makes for an epic stylish combo. I want to own this entire Pre-Fall 2018 collection.  The shoes are to die for, the pajama inspired dress, and the off the shoulder asymmetric shirt/sweaters….come on…tell me you don’t feel the same?!?

YSL- MARRAKECH MUSEUM

The Yves Saint Laurent museum opened in Marrakech, a city that had a strong influence on him through-out his career. His former business partner and life partner, Pierre Bergé, oversaw the museum inception and construction until his passing a month before the museums opening on October 19, 2017.

It was designed by Studio KO (founded by Olivier Marty & Karl Fournier) and according to The Guardian the architects design intent was for “the exterior to evoke the ‘weft and warp of fabric’ while the interior is designed to evoke the lining of a couture jacket, ‘velvety, smooth and radiant.'”

There is a research library with over 6,000 books, a bookshop, 150-seat auditorium (named after Pierre Bergé) and a cafe named Le Studio after YSL’s Paris office. Displayed is a collection of clothing from over the decades and thousands of drawings/photos depicting the fashion houses history. This museum also has a rather large storage space for over 4,000 items.

Studio KO did an amazing job of keeping true to morocco’s design environment while taking careful attention to minute details as YSL did with all his designs. It is a true modern beauty!!
