I've seen the work of Amelia Graham pop up more than a few times this week and I love it! This London-based textile designer has created work for Calvin Klein, H&M and Diane Von Furstenberg. Her work has a vibrant, bold and lively feel to it. She creates her work using her camera, mark making and her Mac. Be sure to check out her website and instagram.

I have been reading Elle Decoration for years. I've always gravitated toward the UK based mag more than its US counterpart. The reason was the styling was always so on point. The rich tones and the way that everything was put together always spoke to my own personal style. I was equally drawn to the work of Interior Stylist Sania Pell for the same reasons. Well lo and behold, she's been a contributing stylist to Elle Decoration for 14 years! In addition to her styling work, she's also an artist and sell paintings and ink drawings through her shop.

So, yesterday in honor of Martin Luther King Jr. Day and Design Sponge had a absolutely wonderful post honoring 40 Black Artist, Designers, Chefs and Entrepreneurs. What's really so great about this list is not that they compiled it, but that these are individuals that Design Sponge has featured in previous posts. I've noticed over the past year, the amount of thoughtfulness and diversity that Design Sponge has brought to its website. An excerpt from the article:
Over the past few years I’ve spent a lot of time thinking about equality, visibility and inclusiveness. They unfortunately were not topics I thought about much at the beginning of Design*Sponge, but those ideas are first and foremost in my mind at all times now. And while a design blog may not be the first place someone expects to talk about justice and equality — for me, those topics are central to everything we do here.
“Home” is an idea I took for granted for far too long. I took for granted that everyone had a home where they felt safe, and that beyond that, a home where they felt welcomed and represented. For too long, I didn’t focus on creating an online home here at Design*Sponge that represented and celebrated everyone in our creative community, a home that would make all of us reading and talking feel welcomed. And while I regret that it took me so many years to realize how crucial this mission should have been, I am happy that we’re now invested as a team in creating an online space where everyone reading can see themselves in the homes, artwork, projects and stories we share here.
This for me, is huge! Not to mention the fact that I recognize many of the names and know some personally. Congratulations to all who are featured and Thank you Design Sponge for your contribution to truly creating a space where we all feel welcome!
