Get the Look: Boston Condo by Ana Donohue

I put together furniture and accessories so you can re-create the living room, dining room, and desk area of a the condo I featured as yesterday’s blog post: “Design Diary: Boston Pied-a-Terre by Ana Donohue.” Interior designer Ana Donohue decorated the two bedroom in Boston’s Back Bay for clients who live full time in Bermuda. Of the pieces here, some are exactly what Ana used, others are more affordable options. (Interior photos by Michael J. Lee)

ARTmonday: Jaime Derringer Art, Abstract Drawings and Paintings

As I’ve mentioned before, I’m a regular contributor to Design Milk,  the best contemporary design site on the web, founded and headed by Jaime Derringer. It turns out, that not only is Jaime super great at her job, she’s also an artist. I knew she did various graphic works for various collaborations, but the other day I saw she had pinned these fantastic, colorful abstract artworks—and they’re hers. I love the clear, bright palette and mix of blocky and curvy shapes. I think I may even pick one out for the condo in Delray Beach. Jaime Derringer art would certainly pop on white.

ARTmonday: 20 Illustrated Arrays, From Modern Chairs to Lady Gaga

I saw the first image here, So Many Trees, So Little Time by Eloise Renouf, on Pinterest today via my favorite art pinner, drawdrawdraw*, and was struck by it for a few reasons. First, the caption said, “ways to draw trees,” and I thought it would be helpful for my 10-year-old who struggles with all the illustrations he’s required to do for school. Second, once I focused in on it, I saw the obvious resemblance to Marimekko patterns; particularly Siirtolapuutarha (I bought that pillow cover in Finland in May). Finally, as I was trying to decide what to feature today, and came to the conclusion it should be child-centric, but not obviously so, I thought images in this vein would work. Simple drawings of items arrayed, some almost chart-like, all easily digestible, some child-like, others just decoratively geometric, and some sassy illustrations. I hope you like the mix.

ARTmonday: Diana Delgado Colorful Abstract Paintings

I discovered painter Diana Delgado on Elements of Style, in which Erin Gates went bananas for the leopard print swatch in the first painting below. Based in New York, Delgado received her MFA from The University of the Arts in Philadelphia in 2007 and her BFA from Syracuse in 2005. I love the colors in these paintings—note the neon—and mix of geometric forms with drips. In her artist’s statement she explains:

While color is a driving force behind decisions made on the canvas, raw gesture, geometric shapes/forms and pattern play important roles. Representational elements and seemingly unstable architectural structures exist within the abstract atmospheres. . . Reoccurring themes in the large-scale canvases are personal narrative, glam, fashion and the embracing of frivolousness.
