Samba whisks and under arm turns. I added red punctuation onto it today...I got my non-toxic pastels in the mail, they are gorgeous, GORGEOUS (by Mungyo) and I have a space in mind for displaying this piece, that would finally be in context to dancing! I'll post more on that soon...

Now open: Print Shoppe!!
Here's a couple more prints available for sale on archival paper...these are reprints of drawings made by making a rubbing of tar patches, then reworking them with colorful pastels for a Pop-meets-organic vibe!
YAY! I have wanted to do this for a long time...I finally have made prints of four original works, they are available through the 'Print Shoppe' on my website: http://interiordesignminnesota.com/section/305770_Print_Shoppe.html

This was a recent installation, the outside of the house has areas of a similar veneer stone, but it's a larger scale with gray grout and brick mixed in...we decided to tighten up the spacing and make the grout/mortar a more decorative tan and apply the pieces with a lot of irregular movement, like clinker brick. The room looks great so far and is coming together nicely!

So, I decorated this room last year, but when a new duvet was needed it threw the color palette off a bit, so we got just a few things to reconnect the dots. New chevron shams with the zebra duvet, a cozy white throw and deep red fur pillow, funky black and white velvet pillow on the armless sofa and a new light fixture with a drum shade made of crystal. The happy accident here was the new light fixture casts this light pattern on the walls that looks like the reflection off of a pool!

We are waiting on a few more key pieces, but the room is well on its way and I was eager to share it! The custom drapes, pale blue paint, some of my favorite lamps yet and original artwork were the start, then yesterday the furniture was delivered! I am so glad to work with these colors and fabrics, they feel really fresh, More soon!

This is another pattern from West Coast Swing, a 'sugar push.' I repeated the same action without a partner, still thinking of these as sketches, but could serve as a movement map for other work, paintings, etc.

Here's a new drawing...the drawing implement is a pair of suede dance shoes, my feet, and loose charcoal. I repeated the same underarm turn motion over and over. Then flipped the image upwards to show the marks out of context to the floor...I think it looks quite floral-explosion-y!
Now I just need huge paper
to do larger ballroom dance patterns!...for now the sketches will be interesting to experiment with...I am hoping for some connection to calligraphy and gesture drawing.

The adjacent master bedroom is almost finished, but just added the mural in the bath yesterday. We had a wall color of soft gray and added a really subtle metallic Lilly 'vine.' The lillies are in several soft shades of ivory, green leaves have some variation, too, with a little copper metallic. There are plum buds that show up here and there to work in the new towels. It's super subtle over-all, but really changed the room, can't wait to show the master suite!
