I am happy to introduce a brand new Design is Mine sponsor, The HighBoy, a curated online marketplace for lovers/collectors of antiques and fine art. With a team of people who are deeply passionate about the history of objects and have keen eyes for exceptionally beautiful pieces, The HighBoy sells an impressive amount of antiques from all over the world and dating back to the 17th century. I'm absolutely loving their featured collection right now of art deco goods.

It's almost the weekend, folks, and I am drinking my coffee while daydreaming of spectacular interiors. No theme for today: just a whole lot of pretty.

If you live in Portland, I definitely suggest checking out Design Rocks: a concert/party/art show celebrating the return of Ziggy Stardust. It all starts at 7 pm tonight at Rotture (315 SE 3rd) with a poster art show, then a Ziggy-era Bowie tribute concert at 9 pm. The artists involve are all incredible- if I were still up there, I would be there with bells on. Tickets are available right here. Be there or be square, Portlanders.

I want to introduce a brand new Design is Mine sponsor this week, Maison & Co., a privately-owned antique dealer based here in the U.S. Kendall Drake and Bernadette Truxal specialize in finding and selling gorgeous original antiques imported directly from Europe, including Sweden and France. They seem to have an amazing eye for great details- every hand-selected item stands out as a work of art, in my opinion. I also recommend checking out their Maison Collection, beautiful modern pieces to compliment their antiques.
Thanks for joining us, Maison & Co.!

October is upon us and I am starting to get into the Halloween spirit. It's a little harder to completely feel it down here in LA, with the lack of a changing of seasons, but I am still embracing the gothy, witchy things right now.

I have been wanting to spend a couple nights out in Joshua Tree National Park for quite some time now and I think it is finally going to happen this month. We are going to join some friends in camping out in the gorgeous desert scenery for a weekend. I'd love to bring any of the above with us, along with tequila, my favorite film camera, and a blank notebook.
