Designer, maker and denim enthusiast
based in the middle of the map.

Here I share various visual exercises,
new works, scrapshots of places and things; evidences of life and living
in St. Louis, U.S.A.

A complicated, romantic thing involving
paper scraps, stringed instruments
and phases of the moon

We work in the dark. 
We do what we can.
We give what we have.
Our doubt is our passion.
Our passion is our task.
The rest is the madness of art.


Henry James

Baby Bonham: The Neutral Nursery

sleeping fox pillow / eye eye poster / bordered rug / cowspot sheets / crib


I'll probably eventually post new work and design related things again sometime, but for now I'm a bit consumed with baby—so! This is a moodboard I'd made a bit ago for little mans womb. I found myself into neutral colors, classic shapes, lines, and textures, with pops of color here and there (surprise). This is the exact crib we ended up going with (after about 6 months of me thinking I'd be getting the sacred stokke, I realized that'd just be ridiculous because it'd likely be the only thing in the room because of its pricetag). I'm glad we went with this one afterall; I'm really digging the grey. Otherwise I'm trying to keep it simple and not overdo it on cute (I say that but if I stumbled upon 100 wooden toys tomorrow I'd likely have to get them all). I did find a perfect little corner bookshelf at an estate sale last week (for $9!) thats gonna work great in his tiny space once its painted—its currently black and pink which is no fun for anyone. Hoping to share some photos as soon as the stars align and I can find the time. All for now —- xo
