In the bag

I just discovered these dreamy hand-crafted leather bags by Brooklyn based A.B.K, and if I ever have enough money to spend $500 on a purse, these would be my choices. They are reminiscent of beautiful, rustic pieces of furniture that might be found in hearty cabins in the woods of — Continue reading

Best Idea Ever.

I am in love with this photography project- the artist  Irina Wening had people take pictures of themselves in the same clothes in the same locations in the same poses as pictures from their youth! The series is called Back to the Future (clever!) Via Cup O’ Jo

Made by Polish artist Jerzy Kediora, they were recently displayed at this year’s Kinetica Art Fair in the UK. “Balancing Sculptures by JOTKA amuse and attract, but above all, they balance,” says Kinetica Art Fair. “Balancing between horizontal and vertical lines, they blend in with — Continue reading

Mind Bending Wine Bottle Holders

Previous Design Talk posts have shared ways of festively wrapping wine bottles, but right now I’d like to show some of my favorite ways to cleverly display your wine bottles. 1.

If I were a chicken…

I would want to live in this chicken house by Frederik Roije. And if I were a magazine, I would want to be stored on this shelf. And if I were in the dark, I would want this lamp.

Japanese artist Takashi Murakami installed his wacky work in the Chateau of Versailles. The images are so completely contradictory that they look Photoshopped to me, with the pop-art pieces completely out of place in the gilded and opulent environment.   via flavorwire

Turkish Tea?

I recently returned from a trip to Turkey, where I expected to see everyone drinking Turkish coffee. And while there was plenty of that beverage, the more ubiquitous liquid was tea, apple tea to be precise. It was so utterly delicious, and you could have it everywhere!

I recently acquired a fairly ugly $3.00 end table from a garage sale. I loved the shape, but it wasn't the prettiest chicken in the coop (see first image).  All you need to transform something plain-jane into something wonderful like this is two colors of spray paint and masking tape! — Continue reading
