Animal Collective

Howdy kids, hope you all had a swell weekend! We spent the days doing yardwork and the nights eating and drinking yummy stuff, so it was mostly lovely and relaxing… and I am totally unprepared for the cold hard wall in my face that is Monday. Thank jeebus for Wallpaper Magazine, because they always have the most interesting spreads (when they aren’t showcasing 20 pages in a row of disgusting albeit beautifully photographed raw steaks… although maybe that also qualifies as interesting?). Anyway, look at this:

How about that Ligne Roset bed? Amazing! What’s that you say — something is obscuring your view of it? Oh yes. Giant taxidermied animals were obviously necessary to illustrate the hipster appeal of these fine furnishings.

That Jaime Hayon chair is certainly foxy, though.

If I only had 5 seconds to grab something out of this room, I’m not sure if I would yank the lamb away from gaping lupine jaws, or put that Herve Van Der Straeten console table under my coat and run for my ever loving life.

What do you think? Is Wallpaper too clever for its own good?

Or maybe just crazy like a fox?

With that real soft squish, you so right I’m gon’ sleep

Nice curves on her with some hot lil pillows
I whispered in her ear, “Lil momma, what you cost?
I know that you’re not cheap
but for sure I ain’t gon’ say no”

My new couch is outrageous
We got into the crib and exchanged some love faces
And even though Hunny knows it cost a ton
Now he wants to buy me a matching one

Designer Spotlight: Inga Sempe

G’day everyone!  How ’bout ya’ll raise your hands if you remember that monster Olympic-sized post I wrote on Tuesday?  Remember how it was the longest blog post ever in the history of mankind?  So, keeping that in mind, how do you feel about a slightly significantly shorter post today?  No go?  Hmmmm… what if I promise lots of pretty pictures?  Deal?  Deal.  Let’s go.

I have come to learn something recently which will undoubtedly shake you all to your core:  Ligne Roset carries several pieces of furniture.  True!  I know we all love to swoon over the Togo (I’m looking at you, Raina) but believe it or not, they actually have a very extensive line of lovely pieces.  And behind every line of great furniture stands a great designer.  Ok, they have several designers they work with but today we’re focusing on one: Inga Sempe.

Ligne Roset unveiled it’s newest piece, the Ruche, by designer Igna Sempe this week at the imm cologne

A simple, upholstered quilt is draped over a basic frame to create the newest piece.  And, since we’re channeling Raina today, I will ask your thoughts please.

The Ruche is not Sempe’s first piece for Ligne Roset, she has designed several including the Moel sofa and chair (shown above) as well as the Lampyre, the Long Pot, and Lunatique: a telescoping table.

Sempe’s portfolio also contains this gem, designed for quirky Italian furniture makers, Edra

Edra let Sempe get away with these shelves as well, which, btw, I find delightful.

One of my favorite pieces by Sempe is this pleated hanging lamp for Cappelinni.  Designed in 2003 and still stunning as can be 7 years later.

I’m also enchanted with her high pleated lamp, also for Cappellini

And you know what, dudes?  That’s all I’ve got for today.

Superfriends Unite!

Ok, I think I’ve finally gotten enough sleep to ably recount the awesomeness of this past weekend, which Karly and I enjoyed with blog buddies Molly and Raina. We spent much of the trip shop shop shopping, with a healthy dose of boozing and shooting added in.

The ladies arrived late Thursday night and shacked up with Karly, since baby Ike makes me go to bed freakishly early. On Friday, we kicked off the day with Mexican martinis at Austin chain Trudy’s… mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm. Delicious. Then, we couldn’t let our friends leave Austin without visiting paint guru Sanders, so off to Benjamin Moore we went. After our paint powwow, we headed to South Congress to satiate the shopping bug, where we indulged in a day of vintage. Uncommon Objects took most of our time there with its elephantine selection of curiosities, but we also visited Prototype, New Bohemia and Feathers, all run by lovely Austin bizness women.

Then we headed across the river with baby Ike in tow, to Threshold Interiors — which I actually did not set foot in since the Ikester decided it was time to fuel up. But it sure looked pretty from the windows.

I’ll definitely be back someday, hopefully to nab that little gnome for the baby’s room.

After Threshold, Ike cried all the way back across the river until he got home to nap. Later that evening, we all headed over to Karly’s for an evening of steak and booze. Well, everyone boozed except for House of Slappy blogger Andrea, who’s due to provide Ike with a brand spanking new playmate in February.

On Saturday, we rose at the crack of noon to do some thrifting, then headed towards the skeet shooting range out in the rural wilds of east Austin. That’s right — us lady bloggers pack heat.

karly

And if you mess with us, Karly will bust a cap in your ass.

I’m not sure how we ended up skeet shooting, but when in Texas, right? I can’t wait for my dad to see this, because he is gonna LAUGH HIS ASS OFF. He’s been trying to get me to shoot something for the last 33 years (yes, I was born with a pistol in my tiny baby hand).

erin williamson

Well, here I am, Dad, doing my best Annie Oakley Calamity Jane impression. Actually, he’ll be proud to know that I hit my very first target our instructor let fly. Not only that, but after shooting several clay pigeons, I had the strange urge to shoot anything that moved… including butterflies that fluttered by. Maybe I best avoid the gunslinging lifestyle.

raina

Although I did respectably well, I would never engage in a gunfight with Raina. LADY HAS MAD SKILLS. Like, scary good. Stay out of her way, mean people.

molly

Have I mentioned yet that we are the very best dressed skeet shooters in Texas? This is Molly, hitting targets in four inch heels. In case you were wondering, no one really noticed when we walked onto the shooting range. Ok. We got a few looks.

Because we are badasses, that’s why.

After getting our redneck on, the ladies went out to shop downtown. Ligne Roset had Raina rolling around on Togos like a wild pony in hay. Sadly, no footage of this exists — it’s a travesty that can only be corrected by another visit. In the meantime, enjoy this stock photo of the store:

In addition to Ligne Roset, the ladies hit Mercury Design Studio:

They have a gorgeous store with stunning merchandise, but they obviously need to hire me to shoot it (with a camera, not a shotgun), since they don’t have any pictures on their website and I had to steal this old image from the internets.

After shopping, we dined downtown. I headed home early like a good mommy, but Karly and the girls went out clubbing. I can’t really provide any details, but I hear that men in underwear were involved. I think Raina has further information for those of you with inquiring minds.

Molly flew out the next afternoon, but Raina’s flight didn’t leave until the evening, so we hit Room Service, where I found this guy waiting for me:

I may be watching too much Deadwood… nah. That’s impossible.

After tacos from Torchy’s (don’t get the turkey special, Austinites!) and some family time around the tv, it was time for Raina to board her plane. Karly and I were both sad to see our guests go, but we already have plans to visit New York and Denver. Thank Jeebus our buds have good taste in places to call home… not sure we’d be so ready to set out for North Dakota. Just kidding North Dakotans. And just kidding, Molly and Raina. We’d be happy to hang with you anywhere!
