Still, Life

In my top 3 of things I love about the Internet: discovering gorgeousness that you would otherwise never, ever see. Case in point: the rug still life from this morning’s post was found on Apartment Therapy, which referred me to the portfolio of one Kate S. Jordan.

Turns out, the lovely Kate is a product stylist, who up until quite recently worked for the likes of a little store you may have heard of called Anthropologie. Her styling portfolio is S.T.U.N.N.I.N.G. Beyond the alluring Anthro photos (which, besides being familiar, showcase styling and merchandising at its best! I mean, hello, that’s what Anthro is known for!), her portfolio of still life images blew me away. The use of color! The textures! All of it. It was a pure drink of water for my eyes.

Hop on over and quench your thirst, lovers. How’s THAT for a little Thursday inspiration?

PS — I’m honored to be guest posting for two of my favorites this week! Yesterday, I shared some photos from various trips to Cabo San Lucas on Chelsea’s blog (theme: “Your Best Day Ever”); later today, I’m at Grace’s blog sharing little peeks into my life, my background, and Vivaleur as part of the Stripes & Sequins Spotlight. Go check them out!
