                                One of my resolutions this year is to change my black thumb into a green one. With spring officially here (according to the calendar, not the temperature), I’ve been researching all the easiest plants to take care of because there’s so much to know! At least with these prints from <a href="https://society6.com/prints?curator=designmilk" data-wpel-link="external"  rel="external noopener noreferrer">Society6</a>, I&#8217;m guaranteed that these plants will never die… here are some of my favorites that add a grounding, serene feel to any wall:

                                Spring is finally and officially here. You either fall in a few camps: 1) excited that winter is over and warmer temperatures are on the horizon, 2) still experiencing Winter and awaiting the day when the snowstorm passes, or 3) dreading allergy season. ;) Regardless, the turn of a new season means a fresh wardrobe + new color palettes. Here are a few things I’m eyeing to get from <a href="http://www.society6.com/?curator=designmilk" data-wpel-link="external"  rel="external noopener noreferrer">Society6</a> to invite Spring into my own home:

Jimmy Turrell Rescued 1,000 Books and Turned Them into Art

                                In 2016, Newcastle-based artist <a href="http://www.jimmyturrell.com/"  rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">Jimmy Turrell</a> spotted a job-lot of 1,000 books on eBay and bought them on a whim. They belonged to the late father of the person who was selling them, and he later found out that they were just a day away from being thrown into a skip.
“My girlfriend at the time wasn’t too impressed,” he jokes about the day the delivery van arrived with boxes and boxes of books. It took him over a year to sort through them and decide what to do with them – and he is no longer with the girlfriend in question. Selecting the best of the books, which range from 1920s skiing manuals to vintage scrapbooks of the Norwegian royal family, the artist designed images and quotes to reference memory and rebirth and printed these over the books, combining what he printed and what he printed on fairly randomly.

                                Lately I’ve been seeing prints of abstract shapes in all of the interior design photos I’ve been liking on <a href="http://www.instagram.com/designmilk" data-wpel-link="external"  rel="external noopener noreferrer">Instagram</a>. There’s something about this modern take on shapes we’ve learned since babyhood that I find myself drawn to, especially on art prints since I find that abstract shapes are practically a neutral when it comes to interiors! Here are a few of my current favorite shape-filled prints from <a href="https://society6.com/prints?curator=designmilk" data-wpel-link="external"  rel="external noopener noreferrer">Society6’s collective of artists</a>:

She was born in Ludhiana, a city known for its hosiery mills and industry, where her family still runs a textiles business originally established by her great-grandfather. “From a really young age I was surrounded by beautiful fabrics, embroideries, and prints,” she says. “I remember going on buying trips with my dad and helping him choose stock for the showroom and feeling quite pleased that I had made a small contribution and my opinion had counted.” Despite this early start, it was by no means a foregone

Copenhagen-based design companies MOEBE, Paper Collective, and Norm Architects, joined forces to release a series of art prints that were designed specifically to hang within the MOEBE frame. Floating Leaves features transparent botanical photographs that give the illusion of actual leaves suspended within the frame. The photographs were made using UV printing allowing a photo to be printed onto transparent foil. The prints, which come in three different sizes, are then From Jonas Bjerre Poulsen of Norm Architects: The Floating Leaves are inspired by the gathering of botanic samples and classic botanic illustration. Playing with a mix of fresh greens and elements of decay, the Leaves become an expression of passing time and changing seasons. Through the transparency of print and frame the leaves get a unique sense of multi-dimensionality rarely achieved in printed products.

Copenhagen-based design companies MOEBE, Paper Collective, and Norm Architects, joined forces to release a series of art prints that were designed specifically to hang within the MOEBE frame. Floating Leaves features transparent botanical photographs that give the illusion of actual leaves suspended within the frame. The photographs were made using UV printing allowing a photo to be printed onto transparent foil. The prints, which come in three different sizes, are then From Jonas Bjerre Poulsen of Norm Architects: The Floating Leaves are inspired by the gathering of botanic samples and classic botanic illustration. Playing with a mix of fresh greens and elements of decay, the Leaves become an expression of passing time and changing seasons. Through the transparency of print and frame the leaves get a unique sense of multi-dimensionality rarely achieved in printed products.

Snapshots of Palm Springs from Society6

                                                <a href="http://design-milk.com/snapshots-palm-springs-society6/society6-palm-springs-1/" data-wpel-link="internal"><img src="http://3.design-milk.com/images/2017/07/society6-palm-springs-1-810x405.jpg" alt="Snapshots of Palm Springs from Society6" /></a>
                                I’m ready for a mini vacation and thankfully, Palm Springs is just a hop, skip and jump away from where I live. I love that in Southern California, you’re only a few hours drive away from the beach, mountains, or desert. As with most places, Palm Springs holds a special place in my heart for its mid-century modern architecture, pops of bright colors, and palm trees at every turn. Here are a few of my favorite <a href="https://society6.com/s?q=palm+springs&amp;context=prints?curator=designmilk" data-wpel-link="external"  rel="external noopener noreferrer">photo art prints</a> that recently joined <a href="https://society6.com/?curator=designmilk" data-wpel-link="external"  rel="external noopener noreferrer">Society6</a>:

Seeing Shapes in Terrazzo with Society6

                                                <a href="http://design-milk.com/seeing-shapes-terrazzo-society6/society6-terrazzo/" data-wpel-link="internal"><img src="http://0.design-milk.com/images/2017/06/society6-terrazzo-810x405.jpg" alt="Seeing Shapes in Terrazzo with Society6" /></a>
                                Earlier this week I saw <a href="http://design-milk.com/fict-design-studio-reimagines-uses-for-mother-of-pearl/"  rel="noopener noreferrer" data-wpel-link="internal">these images</a> and they kind of took my breath away. The chips of pearl accented by golden brass were just too pretty to ignore and made me take notice of the different shapes of the pearl because of the iridescent reflections bouncing off the surfaces. These coasters and trays aren’t made of terrazzo but could be a close cousin, in my opinion. The beauty of terrazzo is that every slab is unique because of the different shapes and materials mixed in. Inspired by this, I checked to see if any artists on <a href="https://society6.com/?curator=designmilk" data-wpel-link="external"  rel="external noopener noreferrer">Society6</a> had made a print of this pattern because I could definitely see the jewel-like pattern framed in a living room or even a nursery. Sure enough, <a href="https://society6.com/?curator=designmilk" data-wpel-link="external"  rel="external noopener noreferrer">Society6’s collective of artists</a> are two steps ahead of me. Here are some of my favorite prints of this fun pattern…

Making a Point (and a Line) with Society6

                                                <a href="http://design-milk.com/making-point-line-society6/society6-lines/" data-wpel-link="internal"><img src="http://design-milk.com/images/2017/05/society6-lines-810x405.jpg" alt="Making a Point (and a Line) with Society6" /></a>
                                After coming home inspired from NYC, I’ve been having a moment with lines – in art, in architecture, in everyday moments. I’ve just been noticing them more in my everyday space (no doubt thanks to New York’s vertigo-inducing architecture at every turn). Thanks to <a href="https://society6.com/curator=designmilk" data-wpel-link="external"  rel="external noopener noreferrer">Society6</a>, I found that lots of artists are loving the simple line too and have made some pretty awesome <a href="https://society6.com/prints?curator=designmilk" data-wpel-link="external"  rel="external noopener noreferrer">art prints</a> with it. Here are some of my favorites:
