While SBT Associate Abby and I were strolling around downtown, we happened to be near one of our favorite spots for interior inspiration - ABC Carpet and Home. It's funny how trends spread from runway fashion to home fashion. Gold metallic pieces paired with luxurious black velvet. A canoe and chandelier light fixture (the perfect combination of masculine and feminine if you ask me).
Needless to say we left with lots of inspiration for upcoming projects...as always.
Exciting news to share! On September 17th I will be launching SBT Boutique which will contain exclusive collaborations with local designers from New York to New England. The first collaboration that will grace our online boutique is a collection from Designs by Kathleen.
New England jewelry designer Kathleen Lopes and I have been working on a collection inspired by Fall/Winter 2012 trends. Pictured above is a sneak-peek of one of the pieces. More details and behind-the-scenes about the Designs by Kathleen for SBT collection to come. Stay tuned.
Last night I finally watched Exit Through The Gift Shopwhich received great reviews from everyone I know. This documentary on street art is inspiring - and a bit hilarious during some parts. The artists such as Banksy and Shepard Fairey (who is the artist behind the iconic Obama 2008 'Hope' poster image) are featured in the film.
I've always been drawn to street art/graffiti here in New York. I find it interesting and indeed a piece of art. After watching the documentary it reminded me how much I want to incorporate this fantastic art work into a photo shoot I style at some point. I'm constantly snapping pictures of potential locations.
P.S. I highly recommend watching Exit Through The Gift Shop if you haven't yet.
SBT has finally joined the Instagram movement. Follow stylebytiffani for our stylish adventures like the photo above of SBT Event Coordinator Meaghan and I enjoying cosmos + manicures at Beauty Bar New York after a day of tabletop decor shopping in New York.
