I just had to share this adorable set of drawings by illustrator Joana Avillez which re-imagines the fan-favorite, Eloise ditching her Upper East Side lifestyle for hipster Brooklyn hotel-living; more specifically, at the Wythe Hotel. It’s hilarious (and worth the quick read). As a child, I swooned over Eloise’s lush digs at the Plaza, but as an internet-obsessed twenty-something, I’m kind of loving that the re-vamped version of Eloise, Eloise 2.0, maintains the family instagram account. She also rocks a snuggie and a Céline cross-body-purse-hat.

As it turns out, this incredible art installation has been floating around the internet since late last year, but they are new to me and oh-so-cool, so I thought I’d share. Meet the melting disco balls. They’re an art installation designed by Rotganzen, a Rotterdam, Netherlands-based artist collective made up of Robin Stam, Joeri Horstink and Mark van Wijk. Is it weird that I suddenly have an undeniable need for a melting disco ball in my living room?
And if you’re interested, My Modern Met has a great interview with the creators.

When I was a kid, I doodled on everything (yeeeah, I doodled in law school too). My notebooks always had intricate patterns, designs, and fairytale lands doodled in black pen up the sides. Since then, I’ve seriously missed doodling. I actually used a Michael’s 40% off coupon (shout out to the Michael’s coupon – I live for it!) and bought a giant pack of Sharpies.* I was going to doodle in a notebook, but after seeing some of these amazing walls, I’m eye-ing my own walls for a bit of blank space. I’m slightly terrified that my own sketches and doodles can’t come close to the amazing-ness on these walls, but I still really want to try! Would you doodle on your walls?

I’d fill it with streamers. Jihan Zencirli did just that. She’s an artist, with a design studio, that she filled with streamers (and balloons and disco balls and handbags and throw pillows). And I want it all.
Jihan started her company Geronimo! in Seattle, and the business took off from there. She dubs herself a “Certified Balloonatic and Master Balloon-Trooper” and her art is practically bursting with great big balloons and streamers, thus the awesome studio.
