Exploring pure art + digital art

Hi Everybody!! I have been all over lately... trying to handled between my clients interior projects, looking for new ones, my Revit training, my country house hunting, my art & photography development, my house, my cat, my husband, my friends & family, etc, etc!!! OH! OH! OH! I've been trying to catch the wind! Have you ever tried to catch the wind? Anyway... TIME. TIME. TIME. It's flying and feels like I going against it. OK. I am here today because I want share some work that my friend Simone Alexandrino and I have started exploring a while ago... I was organizing my art & photography folders and I found that material there. Hum... I thought: this is interesting! Did I ever had share it in my blog? Maybe... I don't remember. I did not even check if i did share already. But anyway, I would like to ask your opinion about it. My friend Simone is an artist. She creates beautiful and intricate drawings using her own intuition and her black ink + white special paper. We were trying to combine that pure hand made art with digital art. The idea was to mix the two medias and come up with something abstract, pop and minimal.

Thank you!

Hi! I am back. I noticed that my last post was done in the Fall. Oh, My! We are in the middle of winter already. But never forgot my blog... Nooooooo! I didn't. I thought about it almost everyday. And I feel really bad abandoning it like that. I am just been out of track, trying to catch up with all in my life. Between client's projects, new classes and country house hunting in the weekends with my husband. OH! That's a lot of work... house hunting. If you have house hunted before you would know what I am talking about it. Specially if you are doing in a tight budget and want it all! Anyway, I would love to share one of my "furnishings fantasies". Below is a breakfast/dining furniture collection as a result of one of those fantasies. This last weekend I really liked an antique house that we visited. Since then I have been day dreaming about the house. The kitchen was really spacious... and it had a nice area for a table setting. There was a brick fireplace there, vaulted high ceilings with light/honey color rustic beams; and the whole kitchen was wrapped by a paneling warm wood, in a the same color as the beams. I thought I would like to create a cool palette for the floor area, for the furnishings. Here is the result of my kitchen/breakfast area wishes.

FALL IN LOVE AGAIN (with your home)

I think I already said in this blog that fall is my favorite season… But here I have to say it again. Every fall I “fall in love again”. I fall in love with the warm colors of the trees, I fall in love with the chill in the air and the cozy sweaters… the hearty food, all kinds of pumpkins decorating peoples' house. For me, the mood of fall has a feeling that mother earth is coming to visit my home. So I have to do something special to wait for her… clean and prepare the house, maybe refresh it. How do we refresh the house? Get inspired. Get a lot of inspiration. Do you know Pinterest? It’s a great website to get inspired. Here you can check "my inspiration boards", so maybe you can start there. But there are millions of inspirations out there. Once you are done with getting all the inspirations my first advice is: put away all the accessories from the room that you want change; and then start accessorizing the room again (maybe with some fall elements). Second: re-arrange the furniture if it is possible. Third, perhaps, buy a new piece of furniture. Last, donate everything that you got tired or that you never like it.

Is that Mother-Earth?!?

OK... Let’s start the work! Shake the dust!

BUT.... First, let's make some yummy soup… while the soup is cooking on the stove go back to Pinterest and search for inspirations. Then, get your stomach happy and your body full of energy.

Pumpkin Chowder - Via Country Living Magazine

3 tablespoon(s) extra-virgin olive oil 2 leeks, trimmed of tough green tops and chopped 3 large garlic cloves, finely chopped 2 medium bell peppers, chopped 2 1/4pound(s) pumpkin, peeled, seeded, and cut into 1/2- by 1-inch-think pieces 1 1/2teaspoon(s) chopped fresh majoram 1/4 teaspoon(s) crushed red pepper 2 bay leaves 1/4 teaspoon(s) salt 1/4 teaspoon(s) freshly ground black pepper 1 1/4cup(s) frozen corn 6 cup(s) vegetable broth.

Heat olive oil in a large pot or Dutch oven over medium heat. Add leeks and cook until very soft, about 5 minutes. Add garlic and cook for about 2 minutes. Stir in green peppers, reduce heat to medium-low, and cook until peppers soften, about 8 more minutes. Add the remaining ingredients and cook until pumpkin is tender, about 30 minutes.

Inspired by the colors of the season...

Some of my choices... I think a new chair would add that final touch to the room...
If you want get more information on these pieces visit my board at Pinterest "Seating I Love".

Ohhhh! I found the "ONE"!
...And please look at the color of this hair! Hum.... this might give me some
ideas for my "color day hair" (which is today)!

If you decide to do your "Fall in Love Again" project, please send me pictures of "Before and After". 
I would love to see them!

In August I went to Brazil to visit my family.  I was supposed to stay there for about a month, but I had to extend my stay… I had some documentation issues to resolve and some health problems in the family that contribute to extent my time there.  I felt anxious in the beginning when I find out that I would have to cancel my fight back home and push my time. I needed to come back to US and take care of my life, work to do, etc.  But when you find out that there was nothing that you could do, except to wait for things to resolve, so then you just have one decision to make...  I decided that I would take advantage of the time and really have a great time with my family, friends and enjoy the city that is blooming and expanding.  So one of my activities there it was to take walks every morning and sometimes in the afternoons, exploring the area where my mom lives, where I was staying.  One day during one of my long walks I found this fantastic space (Deposito Rustico - Moveis e Decoracoes) filled with amazing pieces of furniture and all kinds of decorative objects… things very regional mixed with very international classic pieces.  The space is huge and full of small and big treasures.  You walk around and at every single corner you can find a different kind of object: lucid, or sexy, textured, smooth, strong, or delicate, colorful, woody, urban, or country…  What a fun place to shop!  Ah! Another thing that intrigued me it was the fact that the “deposit” is located in a residential area, kind of in the middle of nowhere. It’s hard to explain, but the huge store/kind of a barn is totally out of place.  For me it was definitely a “find” in the town.  How great is to find places like that while you are waiting for the next airplane!

A really like the mix of materials on the store facade.

They also manufacture your own designs and dimensions.
Here are just a few ideas of what they can do.

Isn't massive and solid this bench? Beautiful...

Love this bench!

Furniture made of bike pieces.

How cute are these ludic objects!

Before I say anything else… Again, I have disappeared from here! I know… I know… too bad! I have to confess that I have been lacking motivation to write anything in my blogs. I am not sure why?! Plus, lately I became really busy with my interior design projects and my related courses, which became a great excuse to not pass by here. Oh! I feel bad! I DO. But, it’s ok, I guess. (I always had the blog as a free place… where I come when I feel like coming… It’s kind of my escape). So, as some of you know I am always on track of something, trying to learn something else, trying to grow my professional knowledge and skills. At this time I took a few classes in interior design photography, at the renowned school of photography International Center of Photography (ICP/NY). My instructor was the talented photographer Elliott Kauffman. Great guy! It was a fun course with fun and talented people from different backgrounds, all trying to learn the techniques of lighting interiors for photography. It’s not easy! It’s not easy to take great photos of interiors. Elliott says in one of his emails to us (his students): When the physical, emotional, intellectual and the technical come together, you know that you have a photograph.

I would like to share some of “my results” that came up from the class. I still have a lot to learn, but I think I am on the right path… What do you think?
