“This appropriately quirky residence and music studio is as free thinking and boundary pushing as the art and music of its owners, Michelle Martin-Coyne, a photographer and artist, and her husband Wayne, front man of the Flaming Lips. Located in an eclectic neighborhood of Oklahoma City, the addition/renovation of their home is the first phase and central piece of a larger master plan developed for six adjoining properties. These properties, referred to as “the compound” for those familiar with it, is being transformed in phases.

Phase one consisted of the partial refinishing of the main house, and the renovation of an existing garage and storage space into a large family room, and a new master suite including the master bath “dragon egg”. The existing low roof structure of the storage space was removed, making room for a new “fractured plain” roof that floats above a ribbon of clerestory windows. This angular roof cantilevers away from the house off a thin exoskeleton of steel, shading the patio below while still allowing indirect daylight to flood the living space. This connection to the outdoors is further emphasized by a wall of sliding glass doors that open to the outdoor patio and expansive yard.

The master suite was converted from a former attached apartment and includes the bedroom, water closet, powder room, large dressing room, and a hall to the “dragon egg” a concrete walled, egg shaped pod that contains the shower and Japanese-inspired soaking tub.

The Coynes have been actively engaged in the renovation of their house from design phase through construction. The creativity they share and bring to the design table has been as asset to the Project. Michelle’s artistic talent, excitement, and willingness to take an active role in the projects finer construction details and finishes has led the architects to creating rooms and structures as “blank canvases” to receive the final finishes guided by her vision for the house.”

Our world under water

 

 Phoebe Rudomino is magical!!

Underwater photos from some of Pinewood Studios' most famous films are to go on display for the first time.

The photographs offer a rare glimpse into life behind the scenes at the studio's world famous underwater stage.

They feature stars such as Keira Knightley, Myleene Klass, Sharon Stone and Matt Lucas, who have all swum in the giant tank.

''It's exciting to show the story of the production through underwater pictures,' said Phoebe Rudomino, a commercial diver and photographer who took all the shots.

'It's interesting to take a wider shot and show what is going on behind the camera.The final image or film sequence may look very slick but the reality will often be very different.

'There may be gaffer tape holding a bikini together or divers hanging upside down to keep someone in a certain position but the viewer will only ever see the final polished shot.'

The underwater stage, which opened in 2005, is a globally unique facility and has been used for a huge number of TV commercials, music videos and films, including the Boat That Rocked, Bourne Ultimatum, Atonement, Elizabeth and Casino Royale.

It houses a permanently filled water tank, which holds 1.2 million litres of water and is heated at 32 degrees.

'All the underwater sequences are a challenge as you have to come at it from a different angle and there will often be a lot of people squeezed into a small space,' said Phoebe, who has worked at Pinewood since the facility opened five years ago.

'Underwater access is limited so often all the director can see is the image coming out of the camera.

'They don't get to see all the things which are going on behind the scenes so it's interesting for me to capture that.

'We have a very good team but each shoot presents its own problems and its all about planning.' 

Actress Keira Knightley is among a number of celebrities to have filmed in the underwater studio and was a 'natural.'

'She did a charity shoot for Fresh 20 drinking water and she was very good underwater,' said Phoebe.

'We had to train her to use scuba equipment and she was naturally very good.

'She was wearing a fairly heavy dress which made it hard but she was surrounded by safety divers and she did very well.'

Hanalei Reponty makes a Splash for Wildfox White Label

White label is all about girls who belong in the ocean!

Of course it was the natural thing to cast Hanalei because she is a real life* mermaid and pro surfer!! with an uncanny resemblance to Darryl Hannah, she is almost a real life Madison from the film "Splash" It seems like all girls were obsessed with that movie, the long, crimped blonde hair, a beautiful woman eating lobster with her hands, the ability to memorize languages in just seconds…who wouldn't want to believe in mermaids??

Since we can't breathe under water, surfing and swimming is as close as it gets, so we celebrate the surfer girl in a magical way...a pastel pretty, feminine mermaid way.

The Spring collection really conjures up girls of the sea, and Hanalei  is the ultimate sea baby. Enjoy!

The Wildfox Lagoon.

Well it's finally time, our Wildfox Spring 2014 collection hits stores this week! I don't think Ive ever worked harder on a look book than this one, but it was all so amazingly fun. I hope it transports you to our deserted Lagoon and helps you picture yourself swimming in clear oceans come your next vacation!

Starring 3 of my favorite muses, Emma Stern Nielson, Svea Kloosterhoff and Mathilde Brandi, 3 dreamy young girls arrived with their Tevas and backpacks to be shot by my lovely close friend Mark Hunter... and with the help of our wonderful makeup artist Carlene K and amazing hair stylist Anna Lee Fiorino, we transformed them into island mermaids with salty hair and luxurious tans. I hope you guys love it!!

 

Please leave your comments and questions and I will answer them in the comment board :) I love to hear your thoughts! XOX

 

"If you were stranded on a desert island and could only bring one thing, what would it be?

It's a question that arises often, especially in film! From the gimmicky Gilligan's Island, the sexy Blue Lagoon, the perfect Leo Dicaprio in The Beach, the amazing award winning Castaway, the terrifyingly mysterious series, Lost,  and the classic Lord of the Flies, we are constantly entertained by and questioning the idea of being stranded on a remote island. Sometimes, sitting at my desk on an extremely busy day at work, I even wish for it.

What would Wildfox look like stranded on an island, we wondered? Well it's pretty obvious… extremely sexy (with serious laugh out loud moments.)

The Wildfox girl is the ultimate beach girl, she's crafty, she's smart, she's wild and out going, and she's totally ready for an adventure! This is why the Wildfox Lagoon is our best season yet, it epitomizes everything Wildfox! This story is of 3 friends who love to watch the sunrise, eat coconuts, run down the beach naked, build huge bonfires, catch fish and cook 'em too, decorate their homes and hair with flowers, go barefoot everywhere, hike mountains to see the views, and sleep peacefully in the whipping night wind (bamboo doors wide open.)

So if we could take one thing on our island? Our Friends."

We all wish we were part of a fairy tale, some magical creature in some great love story.
A little mermaid with pearls in her long pink hair gliding through the warm salty water, in love with some beautiful sailor who she sees on a ship, handsome brown eyes and a different world. Our lives are more similar to fairy tales than we think, and everywhere around us there is magic. White sand that glitters in the sun and gets stuck like diamonds to your skin, sugarcane fields under the clouds that taste sweet in the rain, running barefoot on the hot pavement to meet a boy in town, long days of summer where the moon comes out along with the sun.

Wildfox Summer collection is to be pulled on over a bikini, drying off from the water on a tropical island, sunkissed shoulders and smelling of sunscreen & coconut oil. It is for little mermaids everywhere who belive in their own fairy tale coming true.
