DESIGNER SPOTLIGHT | Cozamia

I can't remember exactly where I first came across the work of Nancy Ramirez, the artist and designer behind Cozamia, but I'm so happy that I did. Cozamia holds a special place in my mind because this is where I purchased my first big piece of artwork for my very first studio apartment in Manhattan, this Brittle Stars on Blue print below.

I matted this print in white and custom-framed it in a cool gold finish instead of black to really make the blues and golds pop. It's currently hanging here in the dining area of our new place. 

I was drawn to Nancy's design for its pattern, symmetry and color. She mixes both traditional and digital methods of design in her art creating bright and stunning statement pieces that definitely strike up conversations. 

My second Cozamia purchase was her Water Lilies print. Again drawn to the beautiful colors and unique and unexpected patterns, I recently added the piece to this cozy corner in my home.  

Clearly you can see that I'm not afraid of mixing patterns and colors! But I love how fresh and clean all of these look together.

Below are some of my other favorite pieces from Nancy's gallery including her newest piece, White Horse. I'm all about collecting different types of artwork and photographs by different artists, but part of me just wants to fill my walls with color and nature from Cozamia. 

Do any of these prints speak to you?  Let us know in the comments. AND if you have your eye on one, you're in luck, because Cozamia is offering 30% off artwork with the code SPOOK30 RIGHT NOW! Don't miss out.

FRIDAY FINDS | Nate Berkus for Target

Nate Berkus does it again! Every time I find myself in Target I immediately head to the home section to see what gems I can find from the Nate Berkus Collection.  Of course, you have to keep quality in mind, but I have never been disappointed in any of my purchases thus far, which has made me more confident shopping online since there isn't a Target in Manhattan just yet. 

His 2015 Holiday collection is once again on-trend with a great mix of modern, luxurious yet laid-back products at super accessible price-points.  This time he's taking glamour to another level with shiny metallics and warm gold accents. 

Here are a few of my favorite items that are perfect for your living room, bedroom or office, including my favorite find of all, a gold and marble end table I just purchased for our new home .   

WOOD/METAL INLAY TRAY || GOLD METAL WING TRAY || HAND WOVEN ACCENT RUG || WATER HYACINTH BASKET || GOLD AND MARBLE ACCENT TABLE || CANDLE || GOLD METAL BASE LAMP

These items are so good that I guarantee when people ask you 'where'd you get that?!' they will be very surprised when your answer is "Target".

Happy Friday!
