Artist Spotlight: Camille Walala

BOOM! ZAP! BANG! I am loving the graphic art of Camille Walala! It is so electrifying! Camille studied Textile Design at the University of Brighton. “Her signature Tribal POP style presents a boundless energy that works perfectly for show-stopping and social spaces – “the bigger the better”.” I like her work on the interiors and exteriors of buildings, but Camille also has work plastered on coffee mugs, clothing, and accessories, which are equally fabulous. I want an iPhone case personally.

Not only is her work visually inspiring, Camille incorporate positive messages like “Play More,” “Living the Dream,” and “Smile Often.”

This is a “simpler” exterior installation, and I love it! It is still so graphic and highly effective!

There she is again! Camille Walala living the dream, folks!

Happy Monday!

Get the Look: Eclectic Reading Nook

reading nook

I absolutely love this entire Laurel Canyon cottage as seen on DesignSponge, so I thought I’d narrow in on a small sliver of it for a Get the Look post! This eclectic, under-the-stairs reading nook seems effortlessly styled with a fabulous collection of unique pieces. The layers of texture (velvet, metal, wood, and a live plant!) and color (mustard yellow, warm wood, black, navy, pink, and white) make this space oh so lovely! Here’s how you can get your own eclectic reading nook:

Pinterest for Business

First of all, sorry I’ve been MIA! Work was busy last week, and then I took a quick trip to Florida to see a best friend from college get married and to visit family. Now, I’m back! Enough excuses, now to the real reason for this post…
