Italian Masterpieces: Where to Find the Best Artwork for Your Sicily-Inspired Home

Oct 9, 2014  |   Contributor: JustLuxe Team

Italy has, without a doubt, some of the richest and most thought-provoking artwork. With Leonardo da Vinci, Donatello and Michelangelo paving the ground for centuries of beautiful artwork, it makes perfect sense that we line our homes with works inspired and created by Italians. Four mediums stand out above the rest when it comes to Italian art: paintings, sculpture, furniture and architecture. While renovating your home to reflect Italian architecture can be rather intensive, incorporating the other three is pretty easy. For those of you in and around New York City, the search is even easier.

Discovering Music & Mistaken Identity With Artist-to-Watch Jacob Summers of Avid Dancer

Oct 2, 2014  |   Contributor: Mila Pantovich  |  1 Comment

We've all heard the story before: a kid is raised in a super strict religious household and grows up to kill it in the music industry. It happened to Kings of Leon and it happened to Katy Perry. But what sets Avid Dancer's Jacob Summers apart (aside from him being fairly new to the scene) is his genuine unabashed enthusiasm for not only his own music (which brings to mind a low-key '70s beach rock movie), but for the music around him.

Director of New Film St. Vincent Hilariously Explains How He Got Bill Murray To Do the Film

Sep 30, 2014  |   Contributor: Mila Pantovich  |  5 Comments

At the San Diego Film Festival last weekend, Theodore Melfi gave one of the best Q&A's to ever be given, sharing with the audience the details of how he nabbed the elusive Bill Murray for St. Vincent—his debut feature film that only took him around four weeks to write. While he chatted about the origins of the story (it's inspired by members of his own family, including his young daughter) and sang the praises of the entire cast (especially Melissa McCarthy), the big stories of the night revolved around Murray.

Roguish filmmaker Alexandre Aja looks like he could play a proper Jane Austin gentleman, but in fact he just might be even more evil than Voldemort.  The “Splat Pack” horror movie filmmaker had a dream— a nightmarish dream—to turn Harry Potter into Satan, and his gruesome wish is about to come true with the Halloween release of his upcoming film Horns.

Hamilton Leithauser Talks Post-Walkmen Black Hours, His Writing Process, the Coen Brothers & Drunk Cross-Eyed Germans

Sep 3, 2014  |   Contributor: Mila Pantovich  |  1 Comment

High school marked my musical awakening, a time when I started to really construct my own identity outside of my mom's water-damaged Cat Stevens records, my dad's old Johnny Cash, and the popular boy bands of the early 1990s (I'll never live that down). It was then I discovered my affinity for Nick Cave's poetic brutality, Morrissey's dramatic flair, Billy Bragg's political fortitude, and of course, The Walkmen's confident frontman Hamilton Leithauser who made every note seem essential.

If you were listening close enough last season during an especially emotional moment on NBC’s Parenthood, you may have heard Allman Brown’s beautifully written song Sons and Daughters playing in the background.

Jul 27, 2014  |   Contributor: Mila Pantovich

It's not uncommon for discerning art collectors to drop thousands on a new artwork for their walls, but it's not as commonplace for the piece to be by a 12-year-old. Then again, most people would never guess these seemingly Warhol-inspired works to have been painted by a kid.
