I've started an art/design/culture blog with a friend called SPACE BEAMS. We've recently started an art collective in Philadelphia of the same name and wanted to document what's going on in our collective minds. If any of you actually live in Philadelphia and are interested in being part of an art collective shoot us an email (spacebeams@gmail.com) for more information. We plan on having shows and shit, so follow us if you want to see the re-dunk-ulous art we come up with or if yourself wish to be apart of a future show, or if you just wish to follow another blog. any how I'm drunk right now so just check it out. It's all in the works....

The Simpson Hotel [30 Dec 2009|12:13pm]

clowncar
 This winter break i got to visit the beautiful Simpson Hotel Bed and Breakfast in a small town called Duncan, out in eastern Arizona. Family friend, Deborah Mendelsohn completely revamped the Old West hotel from 1914, keeping its historic elegance but bringing a unique, earth friendly feel to the place. Check out more about it on my blog, In The Biblical Sense.

TERRAIN SHOP [11 Nov 2009|04:45pm]
back_bones


So first off so sorry guys for totally slacking on posts. School's been ruthless to me and I'm sure everyone else at Oktavia and well anywhere can agree in some way or another. This is going to be brief (cause I'm in Penn's Library and feel weird blogging when everyone else in researching quantum mechanics), but none the less I'm back with a post on Terrain at Styers new online shop!. Just in time for the holidays. For some reason my computer won't save an image of it but you can by a log that sprouts shitake mushrooms for up to 4 years!

Phillip Lim Spring 2010 Madness! [17 Sep 2009|11:36am]

laurenpham
So, this i believe takes gold as my favorite Spring 2010 Collection aside from the obvious Rachel Comey knockout! Phillip is such a genius to me. So consistent in presenting pieces that are so well made, full of rich beautiful and colorful fabrics, while maintaining a skilled balance of practicality and decadence, and of course keeping it fresh and young! Can I be your muse, plz?!



FOR THE WINCollapse )

I know that I have been M.I.A. for a long time, and I am so sorry. Tate and I have been thinking about switching to blogspot for awhile, would you still follow us?
Perrie sent me this awe-inspiring link, and I thought that you all would appreciate it.

AND HERE IS THE REST OF THE ARTICLE / SLIDESHOW, enjoy!

IN THE MIDDLE OF THE STREET [20 Aug 2009|01:24pm]
back_bones
Sorry to all Oktavia readers, the journal has kinda been MIA for awhile but thanks to Casey and Lauren I think we're back to a good blogging re-start. The reason I've been slacking on the internet is due to all the wonderful house guests that have been visiting me recently. Because of them I've finally cleaned up the apartment and have taken pictures to share with all of you. I've also been cooking and baking a lot so if you have an recipes or home decorating ideas please share photos, links, ideas whatever! Hope all of you had a great summer.

My school had an Alex Katz show several years back. I fell in love with his simple portraits, particularly the ones of his wife Ada. She always looked to sophisticated yet innocent in his paintings. Here's a little guide I put together based on some of the paintings Alex did.
