    5 Beautiful Things

      Giuseppe Arcimboldo I have a long list of dead people I’d like to meet. Call me morbid, but I love the idea of resurrecting some well-chosen individuals for a round-table discussion on art, philosophy and life. One such individual is Spanish artist Giuseppe Arcimboldo. He is not well known and his place in art […]

      The House of Hackney To be hackneyed is to be rendered meaningless through overuse, whether  through the redundance of a tired old phrase or the consistent exposure to a common image.

      Willing Spring Into Being It is precisely this time of year when we in the Northeast begin to suffer from winter doldrums: the winter boots begin to feel like cement, the layers of clothing like ropes of bondage, the cold like a dagger in our hearts.

        Anne Siems I recently discovered the amazing work of German-born artist Anne Siems. I liked her artwork immediately and I know that you will too.

      People often talk about certain designers having “a good eye”.  But this is not really what makes a good designer.  Everyone has an eye for what they think is beautiful or unique.  What differentiates a talented designer is the ability to tell a story through a single object or room.

  • There's still snow on the ground outside, but it's starting to look like Spring in the Beekman 1802 Mercantile

    BY:Dr. Brent

    One of the fun parts of retail is creating an inspiring environment so that customers feel a sense of excitement and wonder when they step into the store.  At Beekman 1802, we completely “turn-over” the store about four times a year.

      Hearts For Madelene   When I first discovered the book “Monday Hearts For Madelene” I wasn’t sure what to make of it. It is a small book featuring a collection of 100 beautifully designed and photographed ‘hearts’ made of everyday objects, from food to flowers. But it wasn’t until I read the introduction to […]

      Five Decorating Books I Love As you’ve probably guessed, I can’t get enough of beautiful imagery. I’m happily addicted to Pinterest and also find myself prone to buying books on design, fashion, architecture and style.
