SMITH'S SWIRLS


I am captivated by Paul Smith's signature swirly stripes design on everything. The rug above.


 The shoes above.
The bag beneath.



And all of them are beyond my budget, but that doesn't keep them from inspiring me and giving me a great deal of joy when I look at them.  That's the beauty of photos, all of the pleasure, none of the calories. Is there a particular artist or designer's style that inspires you?

Anne,

I enjoy all three. They remind me of the oversized swirl lolly pop's at the gift shops at Disneyland and Magic Mountain. The colors are so perfect. They're really fun too.

It's funny how our brain remembers things from years gone by with a look at a few snap shots.

Anne-
You sure know how to go straight the the stripes of my heart. I adore everything about Paul SMith's unwavering style. I love that bag, those shoes.
Can we be twins and dream the same wavy dream?
Looks sort of like my palette.

We've talked about this before - how blogging makes everything seem so accessible. It's almost like we could own all of these things we feature on our sites.

As for artist or designers... I'm currently into fabric and wallpaper patterns. So many... But off the top of my head - I'm in love with Jackie Von Tobel's fabric line and have imagined the drapes, throw pillows and new dining room chair seat covers that I want to have made.
