This side of paradise

New York artist Alan Reid is responsible for these lovely works, rendered in color pencil and sketched in a way that reminds me of sultry turn-of-the-century silent movie stars. The artist, who is well known for his gauzy portraits of bored heiresses and withdrawn debutantes, is inspired by everything from J. Crew catalogues to post-punk music of the late 1970's. Head here to see more of his work.

This must be the place

This Spanish-style, Los Angeles-based home manages to strike the perfect balance between feminine and masculine, comfort and style. Interior designer Sally Breer, of Co-Mingle, was hired to find pieces that the owners would love, and subsequently grow with over time. The result is a well edited collection of pieces that seems interesting yet unfussy in owners' low-maintenace space. 

Head here to see the rest of the photo gallery.

May the wolf die

In the summer of 2013, photographer Gianluca Tesauro and artist Jorge Mañes Rubio visited the Cilento National Park in Italy where several villages had been abandoned after the devastating Irpinia earthquake in 1980. This visit served as the inspiration for Buona Fortuna, a photographic series that documents the fleeting and fragile nature of a place that's inevitably doomed to disappear. Head here to see more from their ongoing series.
