Katherine and Libby over at the Vintage Bazaar wrote a post last week about how music can be a great jumping off point for inspiration when designing a room. Well, sweet baby Jesus grant me some music since both Andrew and I have been absolutely zapped by our 9 to 5s of late. Luckily we've found Lykke Li's new album Wounded Rhymes to be a huge inspiration.

Just as we were starting our week in review post, news came that Lucian Freud had died. I think it's safe to say you can't be shocked when someone well into their eighties passes away, but I was. Freud was one of those incredibly talented people with soaring personal faults who managed to have a long and extremely successful career. And he left behind a huge bulk of work. You'd think Freud would've been creatively drained by his gambling problems and the upwards of 20 - some say 40 - children he had, but in Freud's own words, "debt stimulates me." There's much not to be admired about Freud, but his work isn't one.

This bear serves you cocktails, my bear serves me my keys.
Lately we've had bears on the brain. And, no, not that kind. We're talking real-life, honest to goodness bears that you find in the wild. You know, the kind that kill documentary filmmakers and ravage your campsite while you sleep. In reality, I would never want to encounter an actual bear in the wild... admiring bears as depicted in art and artifacts is much more my speed.

It's been such a busy (in a good way) week that, would you believe, we haven't had any time to catch up on our blog reading. Well all that's certainly gonna change this weekend when Andrew and I engage in a marathon blog reading race. That, or we'll check "Mark all as read" in Google Reader and do something much more productive with our time. Yeah, that's probably the better option. But just so you don't feel short-changed because of the lack of a Friday round-up, here's a song that's sure to set your weekend off just right:

This trip report is an entire month late, but I had to share it with you since it was during this trip that I picked up the summer tote that dreams are made of. First off, Providence, RI sounds incredibly unassuming until you actually get there. I managed to squirrel away a few hours late one afternoon to explore Providence's historic city center and completely fell in love with College Hill, the shops along Westminster Street and The Rhode Island School of Design's store, RISD Works. There I bought my one and only Providence purchase which I've since been carrying around with me everywhere I go.

OMG, it's Friday and we haven't had a single post all week! Sad for us and sad for you too, but we have our reasons: Monday was 4th of July; we joined the biggest/most enjoyable time-suck known to man, Instagram; and we've been running around getting ready for the second installment of Dose Market. Oh yeah, that's right... you can see us in person on Sunday at 10am when we drop by the River Easy Arts Center. Also, a word to the wise: Grantz Achatz dropped by last time and he liked it so much that his much ballyhooed gin-joint Aviary will be offering Dose attendees a complimentary cocktail between 10 and noon (i.e. that more than covers the cost of admission). So come get tossed at Dose with STUDY! Our prices will look even better than they already are.
