I adore the ceramic vessels from artist

Betty Woodman!!!

 

This weekend in Paris at

 FIAC

I fell head-over-heels in love with her wall piece

"Wallpaper"

exhibited by Berlin's

Isabella Bortolozzi Gallery.

 

It combines my love of art & design ....

color, pattern, & materials!!!

An "accessoration supreme"!!!

I am obsessed with these couches from artist Rob Pruitt!!!

They were at last week's Frieze Art Fair in London,

as part of Pruitt's installation at NY gallery

Gavin Brown Enterprise!!!

 

They are each unique & truly accessorator

"must-haves" ....... immediately!!!

My black vintage wicker furniture,

with pillows upholstered in assorted Indian quilts,

has been begging for a fabulous ottoman!!!

 

I  found this divine "accessoration" on One Kings Lane,

Les Toiles du Soleil,

a favorite "accessorator" NYC shopping mecca!!!

(see blog  7/17/12)

I'm back in East Hampton for the summer

& I just found the most divine store ....

Serena & Lily!!!!

 

This stunning shop is the first "bricks & mortar"

store from catalogue & on-line "accessorator guru's"

Serena Dugan & Lily Kanter!!!

 

Filled with all the ymmie products that are available

on the web & in their catalogue,

this store is for all of us

who  MUST

touch & feel "everything"!!!

 

And Serena & Lily's "everything" is sublime!!!

 

Great products, great colors & patterns,

great quality, & a stunning shopping environment ...

what else can an "accessorator" ask for????

 

Oh yes, there are design savvy salespeople

to help you with your selections too!!!

 

Serena & Lily is this summer's newest

accessorator "must-shop"!!!

Mounir Fatmi Acquisition @ Brooklyn Museum!!!

One of my favorite installations

at the Brooklyn Museum is

Mounir Fatmi's "Maximum Senstation,"

a work composed of 50 skateboards, 

each covered with a patchwork

of Islamic prayer rugs!!!

 

Referencing the artist's own experience 

of being raised in a Moroccan Muslim family  

living in contemporary France,

is a vivid example of

"cultural of globalization"!!!

 

The metaphor of the Muslim culture of prayer,

meeting the hip-hop skate board culture

is very appealing to me....

or is it the rugs ....

they really are "divine accessorations"!!!
