7 on Locust

April 25, 2014 § 1 Comment

I can be a little on the lazy side… If there’s one place to go and get everything I need, I will gladly do that. So, I was thrilled to find that 7 on Locust has set up shop in my local Mill Valley! And for any of you who suffer the same malady, don’t worry – you can be even lazier than I am, and access their offerings via the website.

I was recently in and 7 on Locusts’ owner, Nadine Curtis, walked me through some fave’s! Thought I’d share…

Dress, Eggs, Bag

Ostrich Eggs, imported from South Africa $38. Totebag by Winston, $288. Dress by Anna Von Hellens, $360. Round Mirror curated by Elena Calabrese & Nadine Curtis.

LiliesTable

MANDELA: The Authorized Portrait by Mac Maharaj, $50. Silver Stream Pebble Table & Gold Tree Stump Table, call 7 on Locust for pricing, 415.388.9696. Cruiser Sail Tote by 7 on Locust with Recycled America’s Cup Sails, $49.

 

Vases,Art,Sail

 

Glass Vases, $25. Leather Door Stop by 7 on Locust, $118. African Boy is by Tyrrel Thaysen of Knysna, South Africa from The Small Square Series by The Creative Block, South Africa. $135

I love the offerings, but the reason it’s worth a visit is to see the artistic community that Nadine is nurturing in her space.  Not every storekeeper opens up the back of their space for fellow artists and designers to keep office space and collaborate, but Nadine has embraced her community, continuing to surround herself with friends and inspiration!   A meeting of creative minds is always a good time, and the front side of the store is just a reflection of how beautiful that can be!

Something about solitude among a larger whole makes us feel introspective.  Solitude in and of itself is not reflective, but in the face of something larger, greater, and complete, solitude can be like nirvana.

What Greenland Does Well

March 4, 2014 § 1 Comment

I’ve been curious about Greenland for a while. From the first time we all learned about Greenland’s naming to a few years ago when my friend married a native Greenlander. It’s a mystery because I have no purpose to take me there and getting there would be an enormous effort.  I design and create, so I wondered what they create…

The tremendous native culture there has centuries of history in their ability to sustain. Fishing practices have been passed on through generations and one of the oldest crafts is kayak building. Greenlanders have long been some of the best kayakers in the world, but should probably also be hailed for building some of the most beautiful boats in the world.

Cheers to maintaining beautiful transitions! Have a lovely weekend!

It probably wouldn’t surprise you if I told you these were made by a transplanted Boise native in San Francisco. Totem‘s Nicole Powell dives deep into indigo dyes and the results are fantastic.
