Pinstagram | You Mumu Move Me

The Anthology’s Pinstagram column marries the dream (Pinterest) and the reality (Kelsey Dundon’s Instagram photos of places and faces in and around Vancouver).

KD and baby mumu

With child. There’s no maternity wear more amazing than a vintage mumu (thanks, Katie, for the photo!) + an embroidered toddler dress that would make for quite the mommy ‘n me look.

Grub

Graphic imagery. Wild new wallpaper at Grub on Main + the work of Roos van Dijk.

Necklace workspace

Workspace. A necklace I’m using in a Global segment I’m working on + a desk I’d be quite happy to work at.

Posters

Posted notice. An ad for what might be the most fun dance class ever + a work of art by Jenny Prinn.

Wo gold

Golden child. My kid’s hair matches the decor + a shirt that would camouflage right in.

P.S. There are more photos where these came from so follow @KelseyDundon on Instagram.

Art & Design | Gig Posters by Catharsis

walkthemoon-orpheum15

I can’t remember the last show I went to (I’m pregnant, I have a toddler, I pass out at 9:30 every night).

But I don’t need to actually have attended any of these shows in order to appreciate the gig posters by Milwaukee-based design studio Catharsis.

Medium poster-sized and $25USD a pop, they’re a bright, colourful way to capture a moment in time.

Even if you actually slept right through it.

Wear/Where | Mustard yellow

Wear where mustard yellow print

Mustard yellow doesn’t sound all that glamorous but, boy, does it look it. It’s like a little bit of muted sunshine for your closet and your floor.

Wear: A day dress at Totokaelo (one of my favourite stops in Seattle).

Where: A kitchen (with art in it!) designed by INT2 Architecture.

Pinstagram | On the clock

The Anthology’s Pinstagram column marries the dream (Pinterest) and the reality (Kelsey Dundon’s Instagram photos of places and faces in and around Vancouver).

Global BTS

Lights! Colour! Action! Bright studio lights + bright gallery lights.

Pop of yellow

 Pop of yellow. Sometimes you need a pop of sunshine + sometimes you match your decor.

Lots of colours

Workspace. My office is never tidy enough to shoot anything but a patch of floor + a corner of an art studio that looks suspiciously tidy.

Toddler breakfast

Somebunny loves them. Selling breakfast to a toddler + a kitchen that could sell anything to anyone.

P.S. There are more photos where these came from so follow @KelseyDundon on Instagram.

Style | Natasha Goldenberg

Style, my friends, is Natasha Goldenberg.

11348177_936979953031753_1457315135_n

She rocks Prada like it were vintage. She always looks put together and a little undone, like only a European can.

Is it the hair? The minimal makeup? The attitude?

11379205_1161320770544901_1162622_n

Or the fact that she’s always shot on a cobblestone street near a 100-year-old doorway, by the water with her daughter, or out at night with her glamourous friends?

I don’t know, but she’s selling the European lifestyle like few can. And boy, am I buying it.

Bookmark | Design Crisis

In The Anthology’s Bookmark column we explore some of the most inspiring places on the wild, wild web.

I don’t remember how I first stumbled across Erin Williamson’s blog Design Crisis (probably Pinterest. It’s usually Pinterest.) but I am so glad I did.

erin-williamson-design-crisis-49

It’s beautiful, quirky, inspiring and shows you all the guts, dyed fingers…

erin-williamson-orc-42

…and real-life mess that go into a design project. erin-williamson-21

Her finished products are always so bold, so full of personality, but they’re often  done economically with treasures hunted from vintage shops and eBay.There’s a whole lot of love that goes into the homes she works on. Including her own.

She doesn’t post nearly often enough (but hey! Neither do I.) but Design Crisis is definitely worth bookmarking. And bookmark The Anthology while you’re at it.
