today’s post finds its inspiration from this rustic loaf of bread and sculptural white asparagus…rough-hewn wood floors may echo the uneven tone and texture of the bread while a clean-lined white sofa may take its cue from the long lean form of the asparagus…interiors with a complimentary palette and textural content…enjoy!

happy weekend!

The golden hour…that remarkable time of day when the warm rays of the sun embrace even the humblest objects…the world comes to life with an angelic glow only natures light can create…this was the inspiration for sisters Kate and Laura Mulleavy as they designed their fall 2011 ready-to-wear collection for Rodarte…loose organic hair, sunset inspired makeup and textiles that embody the changing light of day…my favorite is the dress pictured below…the draping is so effortless and elegant…I find so much inspiration in their palette and form…please enjoy

Yesterday I posted about Alexandre de Betak‘s magical home in Majorca…I was so moved by his ingenuity and design aesthetic that I immediately began researching his life and his work…what I discovered is a man passionate about all things beautiful, theatrical and innovative…he is the creative visionary responsible for all that goes into producing a successful runway show, event or installation (clients include Dior, Donna Karan and Michael Kors just to name a few)…from choosing the venue to perfecting the lighting, there are a million and one details that go into one show…he has been called “The Fellini of Fashion” and rightfully so…his vision is so broad and his talents are so universal, I am just blown away by what he has been able to create…I can only imagine what the future holds for Alexandre de Betak…the sky’s the limit!

The artful photos in today’s post are from an installation Alexandre de Betak created for Rodarte: States of Matter…the show is currently at The Museum of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles and features pieces designed by Kate and Laura Mulleavy of Rodarte from their Spring 2010, Fall 2010 and Fall 2008 runway collections as well as original ballet costumes for the film Black Swan…”installed is a series of interrelated conceptual vignettes, both static and in motion, the installation portrays garments as charged sculptural objects”

Alexandre de Betak, a renowned events producer, art director and designer for the fashion elite, dreamt of living in Majorca…early in his career, he fell in love with the area and now, 20 years later, he can finally call it home…a place for family and friends to enjoy breathtaking views of the Mediterranean Sea, perhaps take a dip in the Nile-green glass tile pool, savor home cooked meals under a canopy of olive branches or maybe take in a movie while floating atop a pile of linen floor pillows…for those of you who read the article in T Magazine (the design and living summer issue) last week, I hope you enjoy seeing this extraordinary home once again…for those of you who missed it, may you be transported to a magical paradise filled with innovation, imagination and romance…enjoy!
