Sands Hotel and Spa- The Design Peeper

Sands Hotel and Spa

I can’t help but love the Sands Hotel and Spa. Designed by Martyn Lawrence Bullard, this 46 room hotel is like having your own Morraccan oasis in the middle of the California desert. From top to bottom there is an abundance of custom textiles, bold color combinations, and bespoke furniture that combines Moroccan influences with a mid-century vibe. The […]

Sasha Ignatiadou is a Russian artist/Illustrator based out of Germany, North Rhine Westphalia.

Plant Filled Interiors

Leave it to Instagram to leave you green with envy, literally. I have dug myself into a hole deep down into “jungleness” and I don’t know how nor do I want to get out. As of right now, I am obsessing over the idea of adding more greenery to my life. Not only because adding plants to […]

Lisa Krannichfeld

I can not get enough of Lisa Krannichfeld’s mixed media artworks. Born and raised in Little Rock, AR, much of Lisa’s paintings are inspired by the cultural traditions of being a Chinese American, living in the south. She skillfully mixes illustrative patterns by using unconventional materials and traditional Chinese ink and watercolor. Also, much of her work uses […]
