I Must Have…Durban Decor

I am obsessed with this glassware line.

Obsessed.

Durban- Spiked Mug

{spiked pink splatter beer mug; $24}

I seem to always be saying this, but I found this on Instagram.

I need to follow a news program and then Instagram would be my go-to for complete media access.

Durban- Spike Coffe Mug

{spiked coffee mug; $15}

It was this coffee mug that first caught my attention; it’s simple, yet reflective of my mood in the mornings pre-coffee consumption.  Love the gold spikes in contrast to white, but then I found a play on my ultimate obsession~ Warhol.

Durban- Warhol

{warhol inspired stemless wine glasses; $40}

I have the gun print in our hallway and the banana print in our bathroom.  And I spent an hour in the kitchen this morning cleaning out all the junk trying to declutter.  Thank god because now I have more room for all these new glasses.

Especially these…

Durban- Hello Kitty

Hello Kitty Star Wars Wine Glasses!

The woman behind the line is incredibly talented, she creates custom pieces (think bridesmaids, weddings, etc) but also has tons to choose from on her website.  Ironic pieces, i.e. Star Wars Kitty, muppets, etc, but also you can choose your fave sports team (loved the Lakers glasses) and Audrey Hepburn.

I think the Kitty glasses will look great next to my Baccarat on the bar cart.

Beauty…NARS & Warhol

Apparently there are lots of beauty products I will be buying this holiday season.  Karl Lagerfeld & Shu Uemura. Check.  NARS & Warhol.  Obviously.

For someone that doesn’t really wear make up, just owns a heavy arsenal of mascaras, I still love buying beauty products.  My bathroom counter, drawers and shelves are littered with products deemed ‘must-have’ at the time.   And this is no exception.

 

What better line to pay homage to Warhol’s massive influence on pop culture than NARS?

Francois Nars, founder and creative director talks about how he has been influenced by the artist, ” What I loved about Warhol’s world was that he took elements from the past and made them his own. That’s what we have done with this collection: we have taken taken Andy’s ‘world’ and made it modern”.  Coming in November.

Pink please.

Now Hear This…Velvet Underground

It’s been a kind of Warhol week on my blog so I thought this would round it out with ‘Sweet Jane’ by The Velvet Underground.

I have loved this song since college when one of the most interesting people I have ever met introduced me to the band my freshman year.  The band’s history and cast of characters are simply fascinating.

That added to the fact this week marks the 50th anniversary of the Warhol’s ’32 Campbell Soup Cans’ so I went to Target and took a pic of the pop-art labels.

I think I’ll buy one to put flowers in…

Interior Design…Pop Art

I love when things are fun and new.  Once Facebook was like that.  Instagram too…

Now it’s hard to get on there and not be bombarded with picture after boring picture of things you couldn’t really are less about.  So I’m bringing my Instagram home.  Literally.

{a recent night celebrating}

Canvas Pop will print your IGs on canvas and even frame.  I think I am going to have all The Boyfriend’s and my travels done.  Or, Andy Warhol’s After The Party c. 1979 has always been one of my favorite pieces, one that I can easily recreate and have printed.  Seriously, every weekend my house looks like that more often than not…

I hope he isn’t reading, sounds like a birthday gift idea!

Now Hear This…Velvet Underground

In terms of fashion, music and especially art, the 60’s are, to me, the most influential cultural period.  I began reading Andy Warhol bios when I was in middle school, which led to my love of Edie Sedgwick (my style icon) and the Velvet Underground.  Music then was very raw, which is one of my favorite qualities of this song.

‘Sweet Jane’ by the Velvet Underground.  Click ‘Now Hear This’ at the top left and enjoy.

I love this pic because they are all hanging out casually in front of two Picasso paintings
