gwendolyn faith is not a crayon.

Hello, I’m Gwen.

I work in advertising. I play in the kitchen.

I’m part tweenager. (Look at my iTunes playlist.)

I’m part Grandma. (Look at my oversize cardi collection.)

I’m part Romy or Michelle. (Look at the height of my hair.)

As a Christian, I'm learning how to glorify God in the everyday. To live into the status quo, like Jesus' own Manchurian candidate, and seep grace through its cracks.

I wish my life were a musical, but other than that, I’m pretty content.

(No surprise I also like to Yelp.)

Inspired by a painting spotted on Pinterest, Mom created a second work of art to hang in my apartment. Isn’t my mom the best?!

This is exactly how i would love to have my apartment set up. 

Livin’ the dream.

Modern furniture is my {dream} thing, y’all.

Mom mentioned she’d be game to paint another work of art for my apartment. (Remember the Cocoa and Hearts-inspired piece Mom created for my bedroom?) I submitted this abstract painting as inspiration!

Dipika and I are toying with the idea of pink and gold decor for our apartment’s breakfast nook.

I’m more than a little obsessed with the pink and gold White Faux Taxidermy moose head, similar to the deer head in Jordan’s sunroom. Screams breakfast nook, riiiiight?

Dipika and I considered buying a CONFETTISYSTEM garland for our living room window, but we reconsidered in a split second when we realized the basic strand cost over $300.

Y’all, CONFETTISYSTEM’s garlands are actual works of modern art. I would love to catch the exhibit at MoMA, probably my favorite museum in the States.

But I especially would love to have their garland in my living room window.

in honor of CONFETTISYSTEM’s current installation at MoMA PS1 (hello,
shiny floral paradise!), we’re taking a look back at a few of our favorite props that the
New York–based design duo has created for us over the years…

From blossom boughs to metallic fringe to something resembling a pineapple piñata,
CONFETTISYSTEM’s MoMA PS1 exhibition, 100 Arrangements, is a wonderland of
arts-and-crafts confections. We particularly love the colorful paper flowers
(the pair handmade similar garlands for a wedding shoot in our Style Guide).

Friends Nick Andersen and Julie Ho, the paper-wielding wizards behind
CONFETTISYSTEM, have been collaborating with us since 2010, and have done
set design for the Yeah Yeah Yeahs and Beach House.

TIP: Stop by the museum on Sunday afternoons to see the installation transformed into
a performance space for various artists as part of MoMA PS1’s Sunday Sessions
program. (Then grab a bite at the museum’s restaurant, M. Wells, the cafeteria-style
dinette that’s set up like a classroom.)

CONFETTISYSTEM’s 100 Arrangements exhibition is on view at MoMA PS1 
through March 31, 2013.

You might think you’ve found your next craft project posted on the Girls of Lincoln Park, but then you click through and realize you’re being asked to learn to upholster. That’s scary talk, y’all.

When I was home at the beginning of the summer, I spotted a peacock chair in a rough shape at an antique mall. I wanted to track down something similar, but I had no clue what to Google. That’s what to Google: Peacock chair.
