Crushing on these finds from the shop, Beklina!

Artistic Photography

Monday, January 30, 2012

Daniel Sannwald's photography is both freaky and fascinating at the same time.  This is only a small sampling, but a good look at true art and creativity.  I'd like to be a model for one of his shoots.



This is a video of his stuff from the Spring/Summer '11 collection for Pull and Bear.

Poster Crave

These posters from the shop Rk crack me up! I want to purchase all four of them and place them on a wall side by side.


Six Skin

Thursday, January 26, 2012

I bought an iPhone 4S a couple months ago, and have a basic black case on it.  Yep, basic, but sturdy - it's an incase (I would highly recommend this brand).  However, I can't take my eye off these amazing case designs featured on society6.  Which would you choose?  Here are a few of my faves...

Floral Arrangements

Beautiful pieces created from cutouts of flowers by artist Anne Ten Donkelaar.  (Looks like something you'd see in Anthropologie!)

The Suitcase: Fashion Editorial

Wednesday, January 25, 2012

I just saw this last week, but it was produced a year ago for Marie Claire.  If you like fashion, you're gonna like this piece...

"During a visit to New York City, a young lady finds a mysterious suitcase in her hotel room. What she finds inside transports her into a world of daydreams and dress-up."

Step Right Up For Food

Tuesday, January 24, 2012

This fascinating pizzeria is located in Norway.  Located along one wall, diners can climb their way into an elegant wood "pod" equipped with chandelier.
The pieces of wood along this wall not only add to the design of the room, but they're actually used in the mosaic-patterned wood oven for pizza making.  And check out those large electrical outlets - be careful diners!
With all the wood elements, unique light fixtures and overall design aesthetic, this place is truly memorable.

What Do You Need?

Do You Say Thank You?

Huge fan of the shop, Quill & Fox.  Lately, I've had my eye on their adorable Valentine cards!  However, I think my purchase needs to be this Ink & Blots Thank You card set.  I still have yet to send mine out for Christmas gifts :(  Do you write thank you cards?  My mom has always expressed the importance, and while she doesn't get on me about it now as an adult, it's instilled in me and I appreciate that.

Design In Home Life

These unique & natural products can be found online at Ne√ęst, a store that found its inspiration through Japanese design with Scandinavian influence.  What a cool combination of cultures.

Born in the 70s And It Shows

Tuesday, January 17, 2012

My friend Sarah and I went estate sale shopping last weekend.  We didn't find a ton of great things, but we did visit this AMAZING '70s ranch style home and I simply couldn't keep the retro-ness all to myself...
