Sam Flax is simple and you can buy them on line. Personal gifts are REALLY the best, and friends and family should always be reminded that they are loved and appreciated!

Spring is definitely coming to Los Angeles and the flowers are blooming everywhere...It is really, in my opinion, the best and most inspiring part of living here. There are mountains bursting in purple, yellow, blues, greens and every other color in the rainbow. I went to the flower market with my twins this weekend and they are truly captivated by the colors and shapes of all the different flowers and petal pieces. We collected a few fallen petals in a basket which later found themselves scattered all over my studio floor. The designs above were inspired by the petal trail left behind ;-) Not sure what they will become, but was feeling springy and thought I would share a blooming moment.
I LOVE flower shops and these are a few of my favorite ones in LA...The new Rolling Greens Florist on Beverly Blvd 323-934-4500 (the main nursery is in Culver City) but they just opened a florist on Beverly Blvd. with not only flowers but also everything else home (bird cages, candles, bedding etc). It is great and worth a walk-about. Lily Lodge on Robertson which specializes in organic flowers and also has a great gallery/ gift area that sells amazing things. And Moe's on Melrose which is visually delicious.

Here is a little more of my line for LULU DK Matouk. Loving the embroidered hand towels and throw pillows and how fresh and Springy everything feels! You can go to our website to see what stores carry everything near you. http://www.luludkmatouk.com/ This line was really inspired by my love of nature and the garden...A lot of these flora and fauna designes originated from my collages from my book LULU...All the folks at Matouk and I thought they would translate well into bedding, so off I went to create renditions from my book and voila...

I am so grateful to my parents for giving me 5 siblings to grow and learn from. Fortunately for me, I am the youngest and was able to soak up all their creations, knowledge, inspirations, lessons, growing pains, experiences etc. I can not emphasize enough how much they have given me (most of the time without even knowing). All my siblings have creative talent, but my two brothers stand out...(both of which I will get to within this blog) but for now, Conrad...who is responsible for these beautiful LARGE stone structures. While spending the summer in Montauk at the home of Peter Beard, my brother produced these spectacles of inspiration...Each stone patiently picked from the beach and meticulously placed to create such beauty that sometimes I get a stomach ache from looking too long....from a feeling of such heightened beauty that I want to eat it, or possess it or make it a part of me...My brother has definitely given me a priceless appreciation for nature and its endless beauty. Thank you thank you.

When I published the butterflies everyone asked for more, so I thought I would show the full extent of my jungle-garden. I have...well...very many of these. A few months after my twins were born, I happened to have a little (big) bout of postpartum. It was hmm, not so fun...Well, you can't have a breakthrough without a breakdown, and this little circus of creatures was my breakthrough; very happy moments of creating as the sun began to shine again. I have so many of these that I thought it would be great fun to cover the walls of an entire space, gallery, entrance or room. Create a room-filled colorful world where every butterfly, bird, flower, owl and fish brings a smile.

My husband is Italian, so we spend a good portion of our summers on the coast of Italy. They sell these great beach blankets that seem to have the perfect sun drenched fade. I loved all the toned petal pinks and lemonade yellows...My little ones loved rolling around on them too. The color and feeling were so pleasing that I brought out a wonderful line of pastels in all tones, grounds and finishes. Thick and thin linens, cottons and chintzes that all look like they have been beautifully soaked by the sun and sea.
