Father’s Day Gift Guide II

Published by:

My dad taught me so much growing up – how to change a tire, make a bed with hospital corners, and how ride a bike. He deserves more than the usual card, and I found some unique and useful Fathers Day gifts for every type of dad there is!

Paola Navone for Anthropologie

Published by:

Acclaimed Italian architect and designer, Paola Navone unvieled her new Out of India line for Anthropologie in NYC this past weekend. Inspired by her time spent in India, the line features vibrant colors and bold layered pattern designs including bed linens, furniture, suitcases, lighting and accessories. Navone says the line is, “an unbelievable melting pot of colors that happily embrace each and every object”. Here are a few of my favorite pieces from the collection, but make sure to see this exclusive collection for yourself.

On the Set of Arrested Development with Set Decorator Jennifer Lukehart

Published by:

Its the FINAL COUNTDOWN!

Everyone I know is talking about the return of the Bluth family May 26th on Netflix. After 10 years we can only imagine what huge mistakes they’ve made in their lives. Housebeautiful.com has a fantastic interview with set decorator Jennifer Lukehart about how she was able to recreate the family’s penthouse, the model home, and a few new locations for the comeback season.

Lukehart incorporated some of the shows running jokes in the decor. Lucille Austero’s Art Deco apartment (above) features a statue of a seal with a ball on its nose!

She also has some tips and tricks, I mean illusions, from the screen that can work in your home. Such as using a lampshape in a color other than white to prevent a distracting glow.

I also just love her positive spin on turning a decorating challenge into a way to expand your field of creativity (they had to recreate the family’s penthouse in just two weeks!) Grab a frozen banana and check out the full interview and more pictures of the set at Housebeautiful.com.
