Three groovy picks - The stylist's alphabet, graphic art and faux plants

Summer's almost here and the city's floral bounty leaves me smitten as it has every other year!

I am also deeply intrigued by these three finds this week, I hope these will feed your soul too.

(1) The Stylist Alphabet series of blog posts where Sibella Court lets us into the curios, mementos and elements she has gathered over the years, in alphabetical order. The most aesthetically appealing A-to-Z I'd have loved to read as a kid :-)

If you ask me, The Society Inc has one of the BEST designed websites - appeals to me at every single level. And of course, Court's book Gypsy is a coveted coffee table book taking one into a tour of the bohemian interiors in the Galapagos and Ecuador, Indochine, Turkey, Scotland, and Transylvania.

(3) Abigail Ahern's faux plants

The closest to natural flora as it can get, with that fresh, wild feel to them.

3 groovy picks - Rugs, Typography, Illustration

A silent prayer goes out to Nepal in distress. In the wake of the horrific earthquake, this news about IKEA's flat-pack shelters for the displaced, is beautifully relevant. More power to socially conscious design!

That aside, here are three amazing creatives who should fire your creativity this week...
(1) Carpets by Faig Ahmed. Love the way he breaks down the conventional structure of traditional rugs and randomly rearranges the resulting components of the traditional composition.

(2) Dana Tanamachi a whiz in hand lettering and effortless typography. You've got to start with this video of her personal project called Flourish, and go from there. I am bowled away!

(3) Assa Ariyoshi's graphic illustrations. Captivated by the way she blends bold colors, straight lines, and just the right curves.

3 Groovy Picks of the Week

Come Spring and Bangalore turns to one of the most beautiful cities to live in in India (forget the traffic snarls, and the pollution)... most streets are dotted by wild bursts of flowering trees. My daily morning walk to work is less hurried these days, I have to pause and take in the Yellow Cassia and Jacaranda in full bloom... simply makes my day! Just go through these digital illustrations The Flowering Trees of Bangalore by artist Megha Vishwanath and you'll know what I am raving about.

Alright, I am yet to get over this trio below...

(1) Justina Blakeney's latest book The New Bohemians, and its cover illustration by artist Monica Ramos (swoooon!)

(2) Bhang! An online store based in Chennai, India creating bespoke.dropdead.gorgeous.sarees

(3) This Color of Curry post by Deb, the Nomadic Decorator. I love the way it sounds "curry color" :-) its not yellow or brown or orange or what.

Have a beautiful week ahead.
