Aimee Tarulli has a knack for minimalism-meets-luxury interior styling. I, for one, love the way she uses blush and light pink as a neutral in most of her shots.

  • I follow a lot of tattoo artists because that’s kind of a hobby/interest of mine. My two favourites are @littleandytattoo and @acidtattoo because they both have very unique and amazing styles.

  • Thank you so much for the feature Lauren. It’s such a thrill to be here on Design Sponge…..

    This made my day.

    Now I’m off to visit the other features.

    xo, kim

  • While looking through these instagram accounts, I recalled a comment my four year old son once made. He asked, “where are the people?” as he looked over my shoulder at an interiors magazine.

    With the notable exception of Paola Mathe’s feed, as well as a few plants and a few children scattered in other feeds, it is, in fact, life that is missing from these scenes. Movement and change are also usually absent. Another stylist does include her self, though she hides her head or face. I assume the hiding was intended to be quirky and fun, but what it definitely is, in a literal sense, is self effacing. Or even, self erasing.

    I love a good stageset; I often admire it equally to the acting I see when I watch plays. But what is it about being fascinated with these these frozen tableaus?
