 “But I can see it in my head!”

It’s the line we use when that interior design project, outfit selection, or decorating effort doesn’t lead to the vision in mind. We can think up endless prints, colors, and patterns for our projects, but the problem occurs when we can’t find exactly what we imagine. Spoonflower understands that retail stores aren’t always as well stocked as our brains.  more

Throughout one of the hottest summers in history, a highly pregnant Jennifer Poe was hard at work in her Newtown, Pennsylvania interior design store, Rittenhouse Home Furniture and Décor. Merely weeks after giving birth to a baby boy, Poe is back at it, heading some of the most sought-after interior design projects in the Greater Philadelphia area.

This type of work ethic is nothing new for the recent mother of four. Since the age of 19, she has had a hand in the purchasing, gutting, and renovating of homes, quickly establishing her visionary talent. After graduating from the Art Institute of Philadelphia, Poe founded Rittenhouse Home Furniture and Décor, a full-service boutique firm with cosmopolitan sensibilities. Her storefront may be located in Newtown, but her clientele spans from Philadelphia’s most discerning neighborhoods to Bergen County. more

Marcel Proust’s In Search of Lost Time: Swann’s Way: A Graphic Novel (Liveright/Norton $26.95) may be the most luxurious book of its kind. Picture a 224-page landmark amid a perfect storm of classic graphics that includes R. Crumb’s  Kafka, Jacques Fernandez’s illustrated edition of Camus’s The Stranger, a graphic Odyssey, a graphic Macbeth, but nothing comparable to Stéphane Huet’s daring adaptation of a complex work that could have been pitched with the old slogan, “They said it couldn’t be done!”  more

Sean Allen is a financial analyst by day and an up-and-coming spray paint artist by night. A master hustler, he can even be found doing spray paint demos outside popular happy hour locations in Philadelphia while still in his business suit. Although Allen assured me that he’s careful not to stain his outfit, it’s clear that this money-savvy artist has a hard time staying away from his paints. more
