MAR. 2nd, 2020 On a tight site that is getting the metal pan in place so that the tubing can go in for the concrete pour the activity is non-stop. A beautiful blue sky in contrast to the metal I beams and orange uniform of the construction workers, art and construction go hand in hand. I like that the machinery is orange it adds to base the photo.
Feb 23rd, 2020 This ceiling is a study of hard fast rules of axis, symmetry and repetition resulting in an expression of beauty. You can see the coffered ceiling and stepping of the drywall that will adorned with plaster moulding. The metal stud gives us a rigid ceiling that does not shrink as opposed to a wood framed ceiling. As I say to a sander keep going to make this surface as smooth as a new born’s skin. Truly it starts with the framer for levelness and from there it layers up. The rule is Do Not Do Your Work…
Feb 17th, 2020 This outdoor pavilion at 260 Palmetto Lane in West Palm captures the vibe of this house. A forced perspective of a photo with a naked girl walking down the driveway to the infamous Breakers Hotel in Palm Beach. Then tasteful furniture in teak symmetrically placed with a fun play of white and green objects. Savage Interior Design out of Nashville traveled to West Palm to create this Cabana Hideaway, job well done. Great to see the collection of rooms and the vernacular of the design to suit this region.
Feb 10th, 2020 A collection of fabulous, my ladies from Taylor Hannah Architect with Jan Kath, the man in black with a mustache plus Canadians. This furniture show was in Germany and my girls will travel for great design, people and apparently hanging out on a carpet. Jan Kath carpets are world renown and will be the auction pieces of the future. It is essential that we all travel and soak up the world around us becoming creative citizens of the world. Creative activity of Jan Kath is supreme and contagious.
Feb 3rd, 2020 Very brave of me to take the onesy Superhero outfit to site amongst the dry wallers. Such a juxtaposition of everything. We were doing a photoshoot to capture a few extra pieces after our look book was complete. This site is a beauty of a deco re-create and the trade men are loving working in the 12 foot ceiling space look at the smile! Or is that because I am there? Usually they are hiding…
Jan 27th, 2020 Waiting and waiting, then where do you go? Untitled: From the series Iran by Gohar Dashti 2013 ink-jet print in Freer Museum Washington, DC. This image resonates with as a collection of people going as a group to where and where are they allowed travel or not allowed. The strangeness is the orderly line that is formed. It scares me, be yourself and take the road less traveled. Ask yourself what are you looking for? The Freer is a small perfect museum to capture a beautiful piece of architecture and intimate collections.
Jan 20th, 2020 Tokyo at night and so hard to look down I must pay attention to the street level. I really could not stop my eyes. In the Ginza Six area there is a collection of retail branding meets lights action building skins. This building is branded by Sony and has a car showroom on the main floor with futuristic prototypes. Mixing culture with commerce and high design does it for me anytime.
Jan 13th, 2020 On a cold winter day, we photographed four of our most recently completed projects and we took one of me to share; I love this photo as I stand amongst my work. A limestone pergola is a jewel and the details complete a residence that was built many decades ago. Renovation is never easy, and to bring today to yesteryear is a skill that I have crafted over the years. We continue as a company THA to design of today and of tomorrow.
Jan 6th, 2020 The rebuilding of a fireplace in an old wall with modern horizontal firebrick is the beginning of the end in a good way. This fireplace will be a masonry chimney with a gas log insert giving the old and the new the easy perfection of use. This restoration of the 1903 fraternity house to a three unit condo will reveal itself in 2020. We are the developers, the architects and the interior designers. A true vertically integrated project. I must say a fabulous photo thank you Costas Picadas.
Dec 23rd, 2019 Not a lot to say except look up and watch. Let’s take this motto and explore: look at the tops of buildings and away from our phones, be in the moment. If a rock is coming crashing down move aside and live. In the end nature wins and that is all true. What is more beautiful the smashed old car or the purple jagged rock; I am going with the rock. Maybe the rock would not be so beautiful without its sitting on the smashed car. That I believe, it truly takes two to Tango.
