Day 3 art Basel Miami
In the middle of my time here at Art Basel I started to think about what being here means to me. To some people it is about the parties, to others its the VIP passes, but for me its about the art. I have come to depend on it, art I mean, to fill me with inspiration, point me in the right direction, and teach me something about myself that I did not already know.

Day 1 Art Basel Miami
After a long night of travel, I finally arrived in Miami at 11am, and the second the tropical air hit my skin I am reminded all of the things I love about Miami this time of year, the sound of foreign languages filling the air, the threat of a late afternoon thunder shower, and art that has been put everywhere.

Modern Marrakech, Reimagined and Authentically Moroccan

 
09-16-2014By: Woven Accents Antique Rug Dealer
 



 

New at Woven Accents, the Modern Marrakech Collection captures the organic whimsy and childlike quality found in vintage Moroccan design reimagined in a larger scale for the modern interior.

Ranging in sizes from 9x12 to 14x20, the result of tireless work by artisanal weavers, these pieces possess a natural abrash that lends a sense of wisdom while invoking the imagination with a one-of-a-kind feel.

Meet the Artist, Break the Mold
I’m not the greatest at writing these things, mainly because I think in moods, shapes, colors, and feelings. Words are just translation. I’ve had many epiphanies leading me to this point as an artist, each one with its own story. Thinking back, though, there is a moment when I realized how much I love art and wanted a creative life.

Denise McGaha on Finding Her Passion in Interiors
One morning in 2011, I stood there with a three-month old baby on my hip and the world before me. Just three months after my son was born and three months after 9/11, my life changed forever. Living in Dallas, my once fabulous corporate career was no longer, and I had a new baby and a different view of life.
