Kate Spade’s New York Creative Director Deborah Lloyd learned how to sew on her grandmother’s Singer. By the time she was in grammar school, she was tailoring her own uniforms (skirts shorter than most) and sketching designs in her school notebooks.
It’s no surprise that she has fantastic taste. Here are a few of the people and things that inspire her:
Jean Shrimpton and vintage jewels…
Colorful Kate Spade boxes and Faye Dunaway…
Central Park and a chic chapeau…
Kees van Dongen portraits and gilded owls…
And a number of other lovely things…read more about Deborah on Kate Spade’s fantastic Behind the Curtain website.
I use sticky notes a lot. At work, we use the conventional brand — good ‘ol Post-its. They’re practical and come in many attractive colors. Personally, however, I prefer something more decorative because they make the process of organizing my notes and projects a lot more fun. So, I’m always on the lookout for sticky notes. I was happy to find these from Galison. They make cute matching file folders, too.
With brightly painted furniture and doors, wide, tall windows, and a greenhouse with a crystal chandelier, I have fallen completely in love with Persilija’s old house and gardens in the North of Sweden. You can see more on her charming flickr photostream, here. And also on her blog, fyrabarnsmamman. Hope you’re having a lovely Sunday!
