Hey guys, here's the primary source inspiration:
I've got four table options:
Thoughts on chairs. I lean towards the plastic garden chairs, especially the yellowish ones:
I also thought about plastic folding chairs:
I think I prefer the garden chairs because there's something too matchy-matchy about the folding chairs and folding table. Your thoughts, team?
Then, I picked a few objects to focus on: the ironing board, the textbook, and the lipstick. Found ironing board and textbook I LOVE:
Now, lipstick. This object needs to be special, needs to be the only pristine object in the play. It's a jewel. It's beautiful. So I was thinking about what the lipstick tube should look like -- it needs to really jump out at us. Gold? Silver? Pink? Red? Crazy Purple? Thoughts? My fave is the gold -- there's something glorious about it, elegant. Examples below:
Looking forward to feedback!

Another artist that Heidi was already looking into. I think this is more of a pallet thing, though I like the way his work has its own sort of ecosystem. There's a sense of restriction inherent in each piece, like the objects that compose each work are both the only materials available and the only materials that were exactly right.
