1. stwotwenty’s eco white bag.

i’ll come right out and admit it — i’m a bit of a bag junkie. no matter how many bags, totes and clutches i seem to acquire, they keep making cuter ones that make me want them — badly. so for this week’s new and noteworthy i thought rather than buy more bags, i’d simply blog about them and leave the shopping to you guys — should you see something that catches your eye. apologies to your pocketbook in advance.

abandoned love.

photography by peyton fulford / sfgirlbybay

this love story is a little different. introduced to photography by her father, Peyton Fulford has always loved to document her experiences and the people around her, so photography became the creative focus and outlet for her. Peyton is a photographer and digital artist based in Columbus, Georgia and her Abandoned Love series was inspired by Candy Chang’s Before I Die; Harrell Fletcher and Miranda July’s Learning To Love You More project; and Klaudija Visockyte’s Please Don’t Leave Me series. assigned by her professor to create participatory and network art for one of the last projects in her course, peyton researched different artists, and learned that the audience interacting with and experiencing the art was what becomes the true object or subject of the work. for more brilliance from peyton, be sure to follow her on instagram and check out her prints at society6.

darkness prevails.

i used to have a dark blackish blue accent wall in my old bedroom, and i adored it (benjamin moore’s gravel gray). and i still love this look. jenna lyons may have made dark sleeping quarters into a trend with her fabulous bedroom featured many moons again in domino — and i’m sure others may have come before her, but that’s the one that i am always inspired by — unexpected lighting paired with that marble fireplace and those amazing black walls. bold and definitely beautiful. the look is pretty timeless — who knows, maybe darkness will prevail and i’ll go to the dark side once again. these rooms certainly tempt me.

geo connections. / sfgirlbybay

there i go again — finding unexpected connections. this one’s quite serendipitous too, or at least makes me feel as though i’m on the right track, when i see a common thread popping up in my inbox. for instance, this week i received emails from both debbie carlos introducing her new marble prints here in the u.s., and then half way around the world, i got an email sharing gorman’s new geology clothing collection. coincidence? i think not — i think we’re right on trend! perhaps you recall a stunning bit of work from artist damien hirst circa 1992? well what’s cool comes around again —  online art curators mammoth & co. have some geology happening, too — they carry gorgeous prints by artist Amber Ibarreche, and both civil and gemz totally rock (pun intended).

a few pages from kinfolk.

The Kinfolk Home: Interiors for Slow Living. / sfgirlbybay

if you’re a fan of kinfolk magazine, you may like to know they also have a new hardbound book out, aptly entitled The Kinfolk Home: Interiors for Slow Living. quite by happenstance i was having a gander at photographer jonas ingerstedt’s website when i came upon this house, which has apparently graced the pages of kinfolk’s magazine, as well as being prominently featured in the book.

new book by Kinfolk / sfgirlbybay

it’s quite lovely, isn’t it? with its pretty palette of gray, white and a kind of rich cobalt blue and a great mix of vintage and mid-century modern furniture — it embodies the kinfolk mantra of slowing down, and simplifying your life, allowing you to create a more considered, beautiful, and intimate living space. for more beautiful images, visit jonas ingerstedt’s online portfolio and pick up a copy of The Kinfolk Home.
