born modern

jeff and i just received the new book, born modern: the life and design of alvin lustig, today! we are both inspired by his design aesthetic and would definitely recommend this book to anyone interested in midcentury design. i also stumbled upon this amazing interior by victor gruen with alvin lustig as design consultant (via madameherve).

small magazine

check out the autumn issue of small magazine!
and don't forget if you live in dallas steve and christine have a super cute little kids store in lakewood. littlebeanshop.com

new color

i was really tired of the bright blue accent wall in our living room. so i decided to pick something more 'sophisticated'. my sophisticated warm gray, i mean, beige was awful. this is what we finally agreed on after hours of playing with colors in photoshop :) i think i like it!
