Design Finds, Looking For Love

Berit Kruger-Johnston  is a freelance illustrator, born in Norway.  For the last thirteen years Berit Kruger-Johnston has been residing in Australia.

This is one of my favorite pieces: Looking For Love. It’s such a beautiful  mix of my  memories of  Hopper, Chagall and Jerome K. Jerome.

Design Finds, James Jean

It wasn’t me who discovered James Jean. It  was Miuccia Prada.

He made Trembled Blossoms for her. And drawing for  S/S 2008 collection’s textiles.

The clothes with his drawing made me wish I had something from his art as well. I found his webside and

now I  own 3 pieces: Vanity, Sink and Treat.
