These images depict how this very talented man was always interested in how portraiture captures the personality and soul of its subject. We love his very distinctive and minimalist style. These pieces are only a small selection of his beautiful work. The Gagosian gallery in Athens are exhibiting Avedon's work from the 20th May to July 25th. If you happen to be in that part of the world, you must make the trip.

This vintage issue of WOI offers great inspiration from some little European treasures. We firstly take a look inside the house and studio of Ellsworth Kelly, which offers a glimpse of the artist’s mind and his unique approach to his work. We are then presented with photographs of Thierry Juge’s French priory restoration before moving onto the fabulously rich interiors of the Carthusian monastery at Padula in Southern Italy. Another treat from WOI this month!

Check out Artist Georgia O'keeffe's home and studio in Abiquin, New Mexico. The house sits on a plateau over looking the Chama River Valley. This beautifully restored house has a very stylist and minimal interior, hosting mid-century and modern design elements. The space is dotted with interesting paintings and sculpture. You will also find stones, skulls and bones on display. The house is open to the public, if your ever in the area you must also make a visit to the Georgia O'keeffe museum in Santa Fe.
Another beauty from the design legend Aubock. We absolutely love the simplistic form of this luxurious 1950s accessory. Definitely one for the wish list.

Above is a selection of pieces taken from this mornings auction at Christie's New York. The collection of art includes numerous contemporary classics and is said to be one of the largest and monumental sales this year. Take a moment to appreciate these truly inspirational and breath taking pieces.
Haring was an influential social activist and American artist who's work began as a response to the New York street culture of the 1980's. The current exhibition in Paris particularly focuses on the importance of the political content of Haring's work. The exhibition at Le Centquatre is made up of almost 250 pictures on canvas and tarpaulins. It also includes his work from subway walls and 25 monumental works making this one of the largest presentations of Haring’s works ever. One of the most well-known artists of his time, and even today his inimitable style, with its strong, graphic line remains familiar to all. A must see if your in Paris this summer. It is running until the 18th of August.
We have decided to re-visit this idyllic place. This time we are looking at the perfumery in the center of Tulum. This dreamy place hosts an eclectic design. We love this relaxed and indulgence space made up of calming colours and varying textures. Definitely one for the bucket list!
