Tigers to Lilies Lili Cuzor

It’s almost Valentine’s day, and this year Tigers to Lilies is preparing something extra special! Wildflower bouquets, valentine postcards, ceramic vases, herbal donuts and a special curated collection of books by Claire from Bookstand! Wish I was celebrating Valentine’s day in LA this year!
If you are in LA and want to give something extra special check out what Lili has in the works at various locations around LA, or stop by En Soie if you’re in Silverlake to meet her in person, you can even order a special bouquet just for you ahead of time and have it delivered.

I am also so happy to share these beautiful photos of my dear friend Lili (of Tigers to Lilies) who was featured on Refinery 29 as one of the 3 chicest florists in LA.
Portraits of Lili shot by Lani Trock. all other photos by Lili Cuzor.

If you haven’t already been to visit the amazing shops that are part of ARTS RE STORE LA in Westwood, go check them out before they’re gone!
The UCLA Hammer museum received a $100,000 grant to create Arts ReSTORE LA: Westwood, a project that is currently taking over multiple empty storefronts in Westwood and filling them with pop-up shops currated by LA artisans.
Featuring an incredible line up of people who make up an amazing community of creators in LA right now, there are multiple shops full of so many good things to buy and see, from Iko Iko, Dosa, Weltenbuerger & Ermie, Bookstand, Heather Levine, and so many more! There are even concerts and workshops happening here throughout the month so take advantage of this rare moment to participate in a really amazing project, which will hopefully encourage more things like this to happen throughout the city. Up until November 24th.

To the West Coast..

This was the first summer in a long time where I felt like I actually got to experience SUMMER! I just got back from 10 days in the south of France with friends and it was amazing! September always feels like the start of a new year and I am really looking forward to it.

RATS Berlin pop-up shop Keren Richter Gabriel Kuo

Friend and artist Keren Richter recently opened a pop-up shop with art director Gabriel Kuo in Berlin called Rats. Filled with things you won’t normally find in Berlin, Rats is mostly stocked with items from New York, and named after it’s unofficial mascot. Items from a few other cities are included as well (including Paris!) A selection of my necklaces are stocked here for the month. Wish I could be there to see it in person. Check it out if you’re in Berlin this month, it looks amazing!

For more photos and info check out their site and this T Magazine article.

RATS Torstrasse 68, Berlin Up till August 24th.

Went on a little trip last week, it’s always nice to get out of the city, especially when it’s to the coast!
David and I went to Nice and drove along the Côte d’Azur finding beautiful little beaches and discovering Pierre Cardin’s Palais Bulles! We spotted this amazing house on the hillside and drove up to get a closer look. Not much to see from the actual street it’s on, but this is the most impressive house I’ve ever seen! A friend from that area has even held parties there! Found a video on the making of it with the architect Antti Lovag (in German, but really it’s amazing to just see the place) Built in 1981 it still looks incredible!

Last weekend I went to the Grand Palais to check out L’art du Jardin expo after seeing this video on Thierry Boutemy’s tumblr, of his beautiful, small, dark installation. It smelled so beautiful in there! It was more of an expo than exhibition, but still pretty impressive to see the Grand Palais filled with beautiful huge trees and flowers.

I had one of the nicest days visiting the studio of LA artist, and friend, Lauren Spencer King. Her talent is endless and her spirit comes through in her work. I love her sense of color and geometry, as well as her love of crystals. All the beautiful colorful objects around her studio are so inspiring. I can’t wait for her next show!

Herb Lester map city guides

The wonderful Rachel over at Herb Lester sent me a few of their city maps. I already own a few I love the one for Amsterdam and Paris, it’s where I discovered the amazing super old paper store in Amsterdam, and how I found the place to buy new blue French worker jackets in Paris.

These handy little guides are so useful, colorful and compact enough to travel with. They have since made two more for Paris, and added many more cities. If you’re heading anywhere soon, these guides have nice unusual tips for exploring new places.

New work I’ve been meaning to share.. I recently designed the interior of Le Mary Celeste, a new oyster/cocktail/natural wine bar in the Marais here in Paris.
This place was a very different blank office space previously.
Now it is the best spot to grab a drink on a grey day, at least in my opinion. ; ) See more photos here. Typography and furniture designs by David Rager, collages by Rosemarie Auberson, glass window designs by me, textiles by Krissy Morrisson, and ceramic lamps by Heather Levine.

Went to visit this amazing shop with my dream team of friends in LA. What a magical place! Full of overwhelmingly beautiful inspiration. Owner Christina Kim has curated such a beautiful gallery-like space in her downtown loft. We all couldn’t help taking a million photos of this super inspiring space.

Ben Medansky ceramics

When I was in LA I visited the studio of Ben Medansky (Thanks to Lauren!). Ben is a ceramic artist whose work I had first seen at the LA Art Book Fair. There were some amazing bookends there I kept eyeing, and of course they were by him. It was hard not to want to buy so many things right off the shelves of his studio! I have one little vase of his that I love, and have my eye on much more.
His work is starting to pop up everywhere.Check out his site to see more, or see it in person at Bookstand at the Standard Hollywood, or at Iko Iko in LA.
