Art on My Walls: Mathilde Corbeil

I love a drawing that uses few gestures to define a mood or setting. Mathilde Corbeil is a pro.

The Tattoo Without the Commitment

Designer Tina Roth Eisenberg, @swissmiss, seems to be queen of creative these days. Her projects run the gamut from Teux Deux to Creative Mornings to Studio Mates. Lately though, I am after the products of her project, Tattly. Tattly offers artistic-minded tattoos and best of all, they are temporary. Look out for designs by household names like Jessica Hische as well as tattoos for when you are feeling especially cheeky.

My friend Katherine Sandoz is an amazing local artist here in Savannah. It is so neat to live in a small corner of the world with such great talent. Now I understand the sentiments of the Twitter handle @nyisboring. There are plenty of “wide-eyed humans” here in the lowcountry and Katherine is just one of them. This month she is holding a grand sale on her works on paper. By entering the code JUNEBUG at checkout on her online boutique you can receive 60% off.

Her works for sale include those from her time spent in Lacoste as well as many of her characteristic portrait-style works. My favorites include the handful pieces referential to New York City, my previous summer habitat. Below are a few samples. Get grabbing quick!

Everyone Needs a Chair

When I was a kid I would visit my grandmother’s farm in Maryland. I loved her antique furniture. Especially her green armchair. This armchair, however, was her armchair and I spent the better part of my childhood trying to finagle my way into getting to sit in it. I finally decided that when I had my own place I was going to have such a chair, one that fit me perfectly and that only I could occupy. While mine isn’t the dreamiest of interior decor it is absolutely perfect, accompanied by my coffee table topped with none other than Grace Bonney’s new book, Design*Sponge at Home.

I was lucky enough to see Grace Bonney speak last night in Savannah and get her to sign my copy. Yay!

And because everyone needs their own special chair, here is more chair inspiration from one of my favorite illustrators, Maira Kalman. I saw her exhibition at the Jewish Museum this summer in New York. Absolutely lovely.
And, the chair is pink. Even better.
