If only we all had Heather Frazier's great eye for combining colors and graphics. As we drooled over the mobiles and pillows that she handcrafts, we started thinking that this Portland artist's talents probably extend into the interior design of her home as well. The photo of her dining room, shown above, confirmed our suspicions.
Heather launched her studio, Frazier & Wing, just last year. Already, there's been a lot of buzz about her mobiles which you can see in the corner up there. Take a further peek into Heather's home, and read our Q&A with her, after the jump.
Always evolving spare mix of modern and vintage things.
The living and dining rooms because of the huge windows in both rooms that allow us to look out and see people, trees, the sky, birds, and the changing seasons. It is pretty great! The dining table also because that is where my husband and I spend the most time together, reading and eating.
I do not have one yet! Books and dvd's are always by my bed. I do not have a TV so I watch dvd's on my computer screen in bed.
This photograph of my mother when she was a girl. And shells because I grew up in Florida.
Oh what a long list it is ... I find inspiration everywhere ... in natural forms, color, film, fashion, graphic design ... but mostly other artists inspire me.
This is the short list:
My daughter's work she is an art major in college. She is doing these great detailed drawings. I am thinking about a collaborative project with her. (That's her work above, on the left.)
I am nuts for the installation work of Gerda Steiner & Jorg Lenzlinger.
One of my long time favorites is photographer Masao Yamamoto. (See the lined up photos on the mantel, below.)
I have also been thinking about the work of sculptor Lee Bontecou.
Mags: British Elle Decoration, Domino ... but I read them all.
Websites: bddw, ochre, astier de villatte, matin.
Blogs: Dearada (more art than home), Design*Sponge, Remodelista.
The womb chair and ottoman in our living room. We bought it a few years ago at the Knoll store in San Francisco when they used to have their 40% off sales.
Always the most recent, which was a new sofa from Mitchell Gold for our TV/sitting room. It was actually on sale so it was a good deal, but a splurge because we are always on a budget!
Well, the list of things I want and need is long ... not sure what will be first but this is what I am looking at:
Much needed rug, side tables, and lighting for the room above!
I am dreaming of a print from Japanese artist Ritsuko Ozeki.
Hive, Canoe, DWR, and antique malls and flea markets.
Thanks for sharing your home and all of these great resources, Heather!
