Friday Eye Candy: The Power of Black

There is something powerful in the color black whether it's used in interiors or fashion. I love seeing it as an accent in a home and it's always captivating seeing someone dressed head to toe in black.

Trench Coat: The Three Season Coat

The simple version of the trench coat that was popular in the 70's has gone through major upgrades.  New and versatile versions range from suede, leather and even transparent material in many number of shapes and lengths.  It's difficult to argue about the many ways it can be worn and all the different seasons that it can be used.  Now that Global Warming is more real than ever, even though some people prefer to call it a Hoax, we can't deny the crazy warm days we are experiencing during this winter and how soon we are from wearing a trench coat even in winter.

The Gallery at Sketch by India Mahdavi: A pink heaven

If you are a regular at Instagram then without a doubt you've seen the Pink monochromatic restaurant, The Gallery at Sketch, designed by India Mahdavi with artwork from British artist Turner Prize nominee David Shrigley.  Shrigley's recognizable drawings are also present in Sketch's original ceramic tableware which can be purchased via the restaurant's website.  The Restaurant which also functions as a gallery, hence its name, has velvet pink banquets and Mahdavi's emblematic curvaceous chairs that seem to float over chevron multi-colored tiles.  Reminiscent of the all-time Hollywood glam era, the pink room is accentuated with touches of rose gold throughout.  The mixture of the artwork and the exquisite design makes it a perfect place for Art and Design enthusiasts.
Architect and Designer India Mahdavi's work is as popular as it gets.  Named by Architectural Digest  as "the reigning queen of color" for her use of bold colors in her projects.  She attributes her boldness to her international upbringing.  She was born in Tehran and raised in America, Germany, and FranceHotel Thoumieux in Paris is also presenting one of her creations.
