80’s birthday party with Jove Meyer Events

Jove Meyer 80's birthday party

If you thought the 80’s were over, think again!  Just last week, Jove Meyer of Jove Meyer Events threw himself the raddest 30th birthday/2nd anniversary bash Brooklyn has ever seen.  All guests were asked to wear 80’s attire (think neon, side ponytails, and LEG WARMERS!!) and dance the night away….clearly everyone had a blast reliving what was obviously one of the best decades ever!!

See that awesome neon ceiling installation?  Jove designed that with Starling on Bond just for the party!  Also, lets all take note of his strategically placed D.A.R.E. fanny pack….way to commit Jove!!

Instead of a traditional photobooth, guests were encouraged to tag their photos with the hashtag #brooklynbirthdaybash and all the photos were printed as the night went on thru Shake and Share Media.  NY Drawing Booth  was also on hand to draw portraits of guests on iPads!

Perfectly perforated

perfectly perforated accessories | Brooklyn Living

I’ve been into perforated patterns for quite a while now…I think it might be because I find them edgy but refined and really architectural.  Or maybe its just that I find repetition to be soothing!  Either way, its a trend a hope is here to stay, and with so many great accessories featuring perfectly punched holes, you’ll have no trouble adding a bit to your wardrobe, no matter what your budget.

Graphic Thought Facility for Kvadrat

Granted this campaign is from 2010, but the colors, shapes and compositions are still amazing.  Kvadrat has some of the best and brightest fabrics I’ve ever seen…we use them a ton at the office.

Perhaps the Bertoia chair might be best known amongst the wire framed pieces of furniture, but these 10 are excellent contenders for your home.

Tak for lort bitch

Embroidered art | Brooklyn LIving

Came across the work of Julie Katrine Andersen and was so transfixed by her solo show back in 2012 called “Be My Valentine, Bitch.”  She took the final words of a bad breakup and turned them into spectacular works of art, using every textile technique I can think of, each in a unique way. Reminds me of something I would have done in textiles class back in college, and makes me definitely want to try something like that now (if I ever found the time!)

Here’s a little more about the meaning behind the art:

The statement “Tak for lort bitch” means “Thanks for all your shit bitch”, nice huh? It was an ex-boyfriend’s last words to me. So articulate considering he was a communication major. I guess I had been kind of a cow, but that was indeed well deserved and totally in order.

You’ll be sitting there thinking “This woman is insane!” (jury is still out on that one) “why did she spend all this time on something that stupid?” Well, you might be right. The very first piece I did was meant as a kind of reply (although only to myself, not to him) because I never did say anything quite as original back. Then as I had let it all go and felt really good, I thought it such a shame to stop the process and people started saying I should do an exhibit. And so I did! So the exhibit is more about turning the negative in your life into positive and the contrast between doing something really ugly in a very time consuming and meticulous way. Or like they say: when life gives you lemons, ask for salt and tequila!
