Views of the Bungalow Hotel which is the latest design project by 9 by design. It has some of their signature touches; commissioned pieces by Ann Carrington and those beautiful type light boxes. I love the way everything came together! View more pictures here.

Season finale of 9 by design is on tonight at 10/9c.

Last night on Bravo’s 9 by design the family traveled to London and were honored to meet their favorite artist Ann Carrington. Let’s just say it was love at first sight when I saw Ann’s Pearly Queen made out of buttons. (Reminds me of Lauren Levy’s exhibit Beneath the Palm of my Hand. I wonder if Lauren was inspired by Ann?) Ann uses many different mediums for her artwork, even though the button pieces are definitely my favorite; safety pins, forks, seashells, old jeans—turning common objects into something much more beautiful. So inspiring. I hope to own one of her pieces someday. Check out more of Ann’s work here.
