Paper bear for the Baby GAP store on New York’s fifth avenue!

I had the pleasure to work on a display for Baby GAP late january. I just received the photos of my bear in the shop and I am so happy with the result! The whole space looks so great, I love the mix of grey, gold and neon colors. Look at that wall behind the bear with the little gold, yellow and pink dots!I wish I was in New York right now to see it in person. Maybe I’ll plan on a little trip soon!

I am so glad I got to work for Baby GAP, especially since I’m expecting a baby!!! I spend so much time at the SF store looking for cute clothes.  Now I want to decorate my baby nursery like this! Imagine how cool the bear would look in neon pink or gold!!!

This is too cute!!! I need a closet just like that!

Below are closer shots I took before I shipped the bear!

A paper bunny for Julia’s baby

I made this little paper bunny for the bedroom of my friend Julia’s baby with a garland to remind the little dots on the head. She got this mushroom lamp at her baby shower from my friend Sonia’s shop Sunday In Color, so I thought it would look nice with it. By the way the lamp exist in pink too, how lovely it is? I might get one for me…

If you like this bunny, visit my shop! I can do it any colors you like!

A little visit to Hello! Lucky

I discovered Hello! Lucky, the well-known letterpress studio 4 years ago when I moved to San Francisco. At this time I was looking for a job and their studio looked like the dream place for me to work. Disappointed because they were not hiring but flattered when I saw this post on their blog. A few months ago, they wrote another lovely post about my work! I really wanted to meet them!

Yesterday morning, my friend Sandra and I visited their workshop located in Soma and I finally met the two lovely sisters Eunice and Sabrina Moyle who co-founded Hello! Lucky. Eunice illustrates while Sabrina does the business part. They were very friendly and gave us a little tour of where the magic happens! 15 employees divided between the pressroom and the showroom upstairs.

James, the printer who was working on the cutest elephant card nicely showed us the process of letterpress.

They have a cozy and fun workshop full of papers, tools, machines, ribbons, vintage objects…and of course all the cards! So many details to look at and photograph!

I could really see myself working in a space like that: two levels with a lot of natural light! I’ve worked on so many projects these last coupe of years, I have so many tools and papers now, it would be awesome to have a bigger space! One day I hope!

Seriously, how cool is this tiger?

And those flowers painted on the floor!

If you haven’t seen their online shop yet, don’t wait another minute!

My bedroom used to have yellow walls and I didn’t like it very much. I wanted for so long to repaint it. Simply white. I finally found some time to do it and redecorate my bedroom by the same occasion. My living room and design studio are so colorfull that I really needed a space with more relaxing, neutral colors. So here is it, all black and white. I’m really into this nordic design trend! Next time will be to get a nicer bed with a beautiful headboard, like this one or a hanging bed like this one (I wonder how comfortable this is)!

Crochet

I am starting a crochet class tomorrow with my good friend Julia. I am really excited about it. Learning new things!!!

Here are some images I’ve been collecting for inspiration!

How cool are these? The guns are by Carina Inger, I really want one!

This is the fabulous artwork by Sarah Applebaum who works in San Francisco!

If in the past crochet was really kitsch, it is now very trendy: from headbands to dresses or blankets, it is everywhere! For the clothes I have a preference in neutral colors like white or beige, but for the home decor, the more colors, the better, and bright colors please!!!

I hope I’ll be good at it, I will show you something soon!

Gift Guide

I looove the Gift Guide Issue by Anthology! Glance through the guide here!

A lot of receipes I have to try! Especially the Mulled Canberry Cider, illustrated by a gorgeous video from Tiger In A Jar. I’ve seen their work before, I am a huge fan! (The Beet Cake one is so magical)

And some great gift ideas!

I discovered Anthology about a year ago. Anh-Minh Le and Meg Mateo Ilasco launched the first issue The Slow Life in fall 2010. I really love this magazine, the photos are always stunning and they have great stories. It is also very nice because Anthology is a San Francisco based magazine. I love reading stories about the creative people who live in the same city where I am.

I was lucky to meet Meg a couple months ago to talk about a collaboration for the magazine (winter issue). I am so excited to work with them and I can’t wait to share the result with you!
