Cocktail Time

Summer time cocktails are my favorite. Pick your favorite citrus - a fresh herb if you like - some champs and mix it in a vintage cocktail glass.  Mmmm...yes!
Refreshing and beautiful with a citrus hue in every glass.  The treat is selecting the glassware to enjoy it in, and I would go with these guys in the shop!

MIX + MATCH: Industrial Vintage and Global Textiles

I came across this image while reading one of my favorite digital magazines, Lonny, and totally saw Magpie Fields  flair. To achieve a look like this, add vintage industrial lighting and touches of global textiles. Featured is the Shed Some Light and the Vintage Geometric Linens from our shop. 

All little more about the featured products:
Shed Some Light is an exclusive Magpie Fields lighting piece that we handmade.  The materials used were a vintage chicken feeder and fabric electrical cording.  There are two options available: black or brown cording.  The light was designed as a swag light creating flexibility for the light to be hung in multiple places in your space or hung as a pendant light.  $150 in the shop!

The Vintage Geometric Linens are just that. A simple, geometric design was woven to make these beautiful napkins.  With this neutral color palette the napkins blend in nicely on your table. Use as a charger, napkin, or designated space to place a candle. It's a nice touch and is $22 for the set of five in the shop!

One-of-a-kind pieces to add charm to your space. Once they're gone, they're gone!

The beautiful mess...

 
 
Last Fall at Marburger Farm Antique Show, my talented friend, Larry, of Left&14th captured the set up and created space of Magpie Fields.  His photography brings a modern edge to something one might see as ordinary - he brings interest. 
 
Who knew set-up could be this inspiring? These days, we're so accustomed to seeing images of perfection. Whether in television, print, or web...everything is top-notch and not actual reality. With styling being such a focus on photography these days - seeing what actually is... is inspiring to me. 

Without the bells and whistles - the whole process from start to finish, is beautiful. It all can be appreciated.
 
Totally digging the unexpected angles and vintage twist of these images.  Go on and check out the photography skills of Left&14th - big thanks for capturing these moments!

EAST Austin Studio Tour

The EAST Austin Studio Tour took place the last two weekends in Austin. I was able to breakaway and visit about five different studios out of the 160.  It was utterly inspiring to see the talent of different Austin artists.
The Canopy studio really stuck out to me - I think it was my favorite. Keith Kreeger Pottery and Studio SloMo were two of the talents at Canopy.
We were thrilled to have a bit of Magpie Fields used in the styling of this beautiful wooden bed by DropHouse Design. The styling was done by Elizabeth Mollen of Stone Textile Studio; she used one of our handmade mud clothes to mix with her incredible textiles.  I totally dig this modern look she created.
Me and my good gal, Rachel, and her hubs, Larry (check out his photography!) really enjoyed EAST this year - although I wish I could have seen more, I'll take what I can get! Son of a Sailor has been a favorite artist of mine since discovering them and seeing their work space was a total treat - their use of color is amazing. 

Until next year EAST...

Popping Up: Paint Brush Strokes

Guilty - I was on Pinterest... 

and I came across the new Chanel line for Spring 2014 that reminded me so much of the brushed aluminum vintage fixtures in the shop! I remember when I came across these 1960s mod fixtures I had to grab them for their shape alone.  The clean lines of the fixtures is of course eye-catching and then enhancing them with bright splashes of hand-painted colorful motion has only added that much more interest to the design. 
If this paint brush stroke is popping up on the fashion runway of Chanel then I definitely think we were and are on to something. Pretty cool right?

I have a feeling we're going to start seeing a lot more of the whimsy brushstroke business in both fashion and interiors. Let's ride the wave...
