This past weekend, our plant expert Lisa Muñoz visited the Fullerton Arboretum, a 26 acre botanical garden at California State University. Not only did she miss a rainy & gloomy weekend here in NYC, but she also got to visit what could be considered 'cactus heaven'. To make up for our envy, she sent us some behind the scenes snapshots. Enjoy! #plantporn
For the past decade, artist Myoung Ho Lee has been shooting trees around his native South Korea. However, these are no ordinary landscape shoots - he shoots each tree against a stark white canvas, creating the feel and focus of a studio portrait, and ultimately foregrounding what would normally be considered background. The result is an image that exemplifies purity, yet is quite elaborate to produce; creating each canvas to tree-size takes industrial cranes, ropes, and numerous extra sets of hands. The portraits are simple in concept yet complex in execution.
A coffee table gives you a free pass to purchase that mini ceramic elephant you just have to have. Obviously.
Don't forget to show bottom shelves some love, too.
Contain creatively. Look for contains with unique textures and designs.
Think shiny, oversized coffee table books, a big bowl of seashells, pillar candles in various heights, and a live plant in a swoon-worthy planter.
Stack books, trays, bowls, & boxes to create height and strengthen the presence of favorite objects.
