COLORFUL CURTAINS!

shadows

i went to a museum and saw a bunch of fabrics bundled together and immediately thought about hanging colorful curtains in the studio and just seeing what happens. i’m highly inspired by color and thought it would create a cool effect…

we went a little wild and got 10 different colored panels, but you could easily get this vibe with just a few colors. we went downtown and got 10 really long strips of poly chiffon and just draped them over the curtain rod. easy to remove or add colors… (and all of it cost $100!) the office felt like a dream. i wanted to have some strange psychedelic party in here with them.

instead we invited max to come in one day and get creative with us. we put together this fun little silhouette series i thought i’d share with you guys. sometimes it’s nice to just create for no good reason. just to feel inspired.

8 FAVORITE PINS RIGHT NOW

I’ve been thinking about art lately. What makes it connect with someone? is it only a question of color and form? Probably not. It’s kind of unexplainable but certainly a mix of feelings and impressions.  –stephanie
