Homegig during our trip to The Netherlands in June

This blog entry written by Jeanne Smith Murray for Homegig during our trip to The Netherlands in June 

"How To Meet An Angel" made by Russian artists Ilya and Emilia Kabakov.

I read about this controversial art installation some time back and was pleasantly surprised to find it in plain view from our airbnb roof deck. Installed atop the Mentrum Kliniek in Amsterdam, a mental health facility, the metal and fiberglass figure is equipped with a backpack and looks to the sky with arms wide open requesting help.

While the intention was meant to signify hope for those leaving the clinic  - hope that a guardian angel will assist them in their journey forward - some locals felt it appeared to be someone about to jump to end their life and didn't belong atop a psychiatric facility. Let's hope everyone with arms wide open receives their guardian angel to guide them to good health and happiness.

"All Things Corduroy"

 
22197883_10214711450482591_911764062_o.jpg
 

It’s officially sweater weather at home Gig so we’re sharing this post from autumn past. Check out all things corduroy  -  what does corduroy mean to you?

Corduroy textiles conjure up a number of connotations: for many of us it is the adorable Don Freeman picture book “Corduroy”, for some it is the fabric of a dependable work pant, or the name of track 8 of Pearl Jam’s Vitalogy, or grooved slopes of the freshly groomed ski slope. For others among us it is the velveteen ribbed texture that reminds us of the annual transition to our autumn wardrobe. Regardless of our personal associations, what makes the original corduroy textile unique is the way that it is both a luxurious velvet texture and a durable, inexpensive product at the same time. At Home Gig, it seems to us that it is precisely this dialectic quality that draws our attention to all things corduroy.

Home Gig recently had the opportunity to work with architect Dave Johnson of Skaala, LLC, and Bob Stafford and Mark Ellis of Carpenters and Co. to oversee the production of a design story on the “Corduroy” House to be featured in an upcoming edition of Martha’s Vineyard Magazine.

Day of the Shoot:

By the time photographer David Welch arrived to set up his cameras at the house for the photo shoot, Home Gig was ready with fresh cut flowers in hand and our car full of photoshoot essentials. Throughout the day Lauren was constantly on hand to finesse the details of each composition. Her experienced eye was able to direct the shoot to capture the interplay of light and shadow that runs throughout the dynamic space and makes the home a true architectural artifact.

The residence, dubbed “Corduroy House” early in its conception, combines the elements we love in vernacular agrarian architecture — shed roofs, exposed structural elements, reclaimed wood materials — seamlessly alongside a commitment to thoughtful architecture that takes advantage of long vantages across the space.

We were reminded again of the dynamic quality of corduroy when we met Lilly Croning at the Featherstone Reception this past week. She was spotted in a hand sewn ensemble she put together from thrift store finds. We never cease to be amazed by the transformative properties of human creativity and corduroy!

GROUDED Beauty Salon

We love ourselves a great day of beauty and when in Corpus Christi we make sure we book ourselves some time with the fabulous Ivana at Grounded Beauty Studio.  We were so pleased to have had the opportunity to work creatively on the opening of her new beauty salon GROUNDED.

Home Gig designed her custom identity package inspired by the philosophy of being “GROUNDED”. We interpret that as a sign of balance. Using earth tones with a simple blooming flower, we centered stems rising up from its roots and love how it looks up in lights and throughout her marketing collateral.

Bibi’s MV

Baby, Children, Home

This luxurious island baby, children’s and home boutique located on Main Street in Vineyard Haven, MA needed a fresh look and new ecommerce site for their expanding island store.

Noting the deluxe brands carried in the store such as Bella Note Bed Lines, Home Gig worked with an elegant monotone pallet and simple script fonts to evoke the feeling of luxury. We developed and designed the style sheets to represent new and existing products and directed navigation throughout the website.

Working with the store owner Home Gig introduced marketing strategies and developed a strategic plan to include branding and development, social media marketing and more. We look forward to working with this beautiful island boutique.

NO JOB TOO SMALL FOR HOME GIG!

#THANKFUL

The Thanksgiving season is upon us and while we should be thankful all throughout the year, the holidays are a great time to think back, reflect, and enjoy the little things.

With our basic necessities of life (food, water & shelter) on top of the list, Here are just SOME of the things that Home Gig is thankful l for this year.

Family

Family is the support you can always count on, the people you can call and depend on all your life. We feel fortunate and truly blessed to have the love and closeness of our families.

 
 

Health

A very wise person once told me - “You’re health is your wealth.” Self care, balance, mediation, healthy nutrition, and exercise, it takes time but it’s worth the investment! Eivar is running 1/2 marathons to keep in shape and Lauren is practicing yoga and playing tennis.

Home

We love our homes. Its the place where we start and end our day. In our cases its our office too. This year Lauren completed well needed repairs and updates including - a new roof, windows, interior painting, installed skylights and purchased new furniture and window treatments. She also removed dead trees and overgrowth around the property to enhance thelandscape. It feels good to make this financial and emotional investments and it supports the security that comes from homeownership.

Friends

Good friends are hard to come by. Good friends encourage us, motivate us, and support us. They're the people you call in an emergency and the ones that listen to you when you need a good ear. These awesome individuals may also be the ones you have a never-ending group chat with. Friends are the people that know you better than you know yourself and come swooping in just when you need them.

New Opportunities

The chance to travel, learning new skills, creating new alliances, new ideas - a new anything! New opportunities are new potential experiences, new memories. We are always open to new opportunities at Home Gig and are Thankful for the ones that come our way.  As Creatives we enjoy innovation and keeping ideas fresh. With our new Boston office in place, we are now able to service both our island and off island clients.

Happiness

Being thankful for the tiny little treasures. Appreciate the value of happiness. Be thankful for the little moments, the ones that make you smile unexpectedly or laugh uncontrollably. Stop and smell the roses life is short, live in the moment.

THANKFULLY

Lauren and Eivar
