Alfred Hitchcock Presents: mid-century set design

Anthony Hopkins Scarlett Johansson Hitchcock

bullet bras, coral walls, shag rugs, red lipstick...and murder.

the LA times recently featured stills from the new film hitchcock and i couldn't resist the production design by judy becker (the fighter, brokeback mountain) and set designer robert gould (the artist).

filmed primarly in homes around los angeles and pasadena, styles range from english tudor mansions and a mid-century bachelor pad to hollywood regency bedrooms and wood panelled studies.

a most curious collection indeed...

Loving on Luvocracy

Tula jeng whorange luvocracy shopping collections

hi kittens!

a little while ago, i mentioned that i was embarking on an exciting new project with some fabulous bloggers, gadget stalkers, design mavens, pinning junkies, and all around hotties.

well...here it is -- LUVOCRACY!

luvocracy is a groovy new site for super cool shopping, collecting, browsing, coveting, and gifting. think pinterest meets amazon. simply pin or "luv" items for sale (using the simple plug in), put them into a collection, and the next thing you know -- you have your own little curated store front! click here to peruse my collection of luv.

you can also take a peek at other member's collections. while perusing, you can make a purchase or add another member's item to your collection.

purchasing is easy peasy, too. just enter your credit card once (and only once) and you're ready to go to town.

there a some dandy perks, too! read here for details.

honestly, i'm not writing about luvocracy with any other intention other than i think it's really fun and you should give it a spin. plus, it incorporates social media + pretty pictures + shopping (and you know how much i love all three). it's a trifecta of whorange.

currently, luvocracy is invite only, so if you'd like to join, shoot me an email at tula@whorange.net. include your name and email address and i'll send you an invitation.

Matte Stephens' new book!

Matte Stephens illustration art book Alto 01

kittens, i'm in love!

matte stephens (one of my favorite artists in the whole wide world!) has a new book called selected works and it is ridiculously amazing. published by editions alto, each page takes you on a fantastical little vacation into a glorious world where refined walruses dine in central park, cats sport ascots, and octopi hitch rides with unsuspecting families on vacation.

i have probably featured matte's art on WHORANGE more than any other artist, simply because his illustrations make me happy. from blog giveaways to rare felted sculptures, matte has been an inspiration to me for several years.

thank you, matte!

script writer: the moonrise kingdom font

Moonrise Kingdom Jessica Hische font

behind every good font is a good designer.

the genius behind the glorious moonrise kingdom font is san francisco based "letterer, illustrator, and crazy cat lady" jessica hische. the dreamy, hand-hewn lettering was inspired by ed benguiat’s edwardian script, but eventually grew into a font all its own.

and the best news is...the font will be available for purchase next year! yes - you, too, can craft your own title card similar to that of wes anderson, bill murray, and tilda swinton. camp's in session!

Obama rainbows and unicorn

kittens, last night was a good night! i'm functioning on three hours of sleep, but it feels good.

president obama was re-elected, marriage equality won in maine, maryland, and washington (legalized) and minnesota (wasn't constitutionally banned), an historic number of badass women were elected to the senate, and oh...you can now recreationally smoke and grown pot in colorado (UPDATE: and washington!).

and another big winner...nerds! congratulations, nate silver. you are a golden, brilliant god.

xoxo
