Hello Lacquered Lifers. I know, I know, it has been a while. Putting the house on the market and getting ready for the move have really occupied my time … along with work and a sick dog. I’m sorry I have been neglecting you! To kick off the comeback today I want to introduce you to New Orleans based photographer Frank Relle. I was introduced to his work through an article in the NY Times, and I’ve fallen completely head over heels for his “Nightscapes” series. Photographing buildings all over New Orleans, particularly those in need of a little TLC, the lighting he uses makes the buildings seem as though they are part of some magical land … which, for those of us who have spent any time in New Orleans, know is the truth. For more information on Frank Relle, and to peruse more of his stunning work, visit www.frankrelle.com . And don’t worry Lacquered Lifers, like these historic buildings, I am here to stay. xo Olivia
Good morning Lacquered Lifers. I am not feeling so hot today. Not surprising with the fast paced NYC visit, airplane travel, and the change in weather conditions down here in the South. Sorry for the short post this morning, because I wish I was feeling like this … But instead, I am feeling like this … These are both wallpapers from the new collection by New Orleans-based artist Amanda Stone Talley . Celebrated for her abstract drawings and paintings, this talented southerner is now producing wallpaper and fabric. It’s nice to shop local isn’t it? Now back to a cup of tea and covers.
