Jello isn’t just for kids anymore. These gelatin cakes take dinner parties to a whole new level! We have become completely obsessed with them ever since we noticed the gelatin cake story in Gather Journal. We love all the weird colors and molds you can use to make these glowing, jelly gems. We also love how you can make a gelatin cake ultra sophisticated with a molded floral surprise inside. Very neat.

Annnnnnd we’re back! We just recently returned from a month long journey backpacking South East Asia. Our excursion consisted of Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos, and Thailand. Each country touched a special spot in our hearts and we look forward to sharing our favorite memories during our trip. This week, we are sharing our adventures in beloved Cambodia!

We stayed at the Golden Banana bed and breakfast in Siem Reap and rode the neighbor’s bicycles into Angkorwat where we explored the ancient ruins. Fascinated by the scale of the architecture, the jungle and overrun trees, we found ourselves exploring for days. The colors, surprises and people living and worshiping in the temples inspired us with their bold passion. We can truly say that Cambodia changed our little lives and took our breath away. We miss it already and yearn for the day to visit once more.

This weekend Rachel Antonoff had her SS 13 Presentation! Her collection was inspired by the Charles and Ray Eams film Powers of Ten. This film focus on the relative size of things in the universe and the effect of adding another zero. I really love this concept and was very excited when she asked me to make this PO10 areial pattern. I also drew the “I’m with Her” graphic which she had printed on a handful of tee’s and sweatshirts!


This week we blew up the set deign for SHADES of GREY by Micah Cohen’s 2013 Spring/Summer Collection.  After being asked to design Micah’s presentation and viewing his new collection, we were jumping with excitement to be a part of it all. Inspired by the colors and acid surf vibes of the collection, we created a minimal, graphic and surreal environment.

We painted 9′ tall palm trees of various shapes and species jet back and placed them amongst the turquoise backdrop, bar and lounge area. The models stood on red platforms in staggered formations with red sand oozing from underneath. The red sand served as a seamless transition from the platforms to the turquoise backdrop giving texture and a bit of surprise!

The band HITS rocked out during the presentation with our oversized canvas backdrop to match our favorite black and white pattern from the collection ( model to match ;)

Cowabunga! and now we are ready to wipe outttt!

Check out this video Michelle Reneau and I made for The Block Magazine‘s marriage equality issue. The video was inspired by Comme des Garçons Spring 2012 collection.

The summer is officially here! We have been celebrating with tiny picnics in the park, to-go wine and beer, and some summer tunes. Check out our favorite shoot we styled for this Summer’s Brooklyn Magazine! 

We just got back from a weekend getaway to the Brimfield Massachusetts antique fair! A two day trip was all we needed to get out of the city, find inspiration, BBQ, and go camping at Yogi Bear Jellystone Park Camp with friends. Check out all the little treasure we found along with some epic good old dancin, and campsite fun. Can’t wait to hit it up again in July!

OMG have we been busy. This past week we tackled the set design for Original Penguin’s women’s launch! We feel so lucky to have been apart of this amazing event and all the talented people who worked on the project. We made life sized cut outs that a typical ” Penguin Girl ” would collect or encounter in her world. To pop it off, we covered all the walls, backdrops, and windows in the traditional black and white poka dots inspired by one of the sweaters from the collection.
