some island inspiration

thank you to isla over at so'mace for this little bit of inspiration and sunshine today. i love these little framed slippers..what an easy and relatively inexpensive artwork solution via the designers attic!

also here to remind you of the kagu+akari show. it's all about the joinery from the of UH students via david landry's summer furniture making class. and of course some new works from our favorite resident artists like mark chai and wendy kim messier.

small house

ok, i know i said i wasn't going to watch but i've been loosely following hgtv's design star..and last night's episode was so inspiring. melissa from unleash studio actually turned me on to this a few months back and i've always wanted to build one. if you have the extra space in your backyard this could be such a fun little office/chill out/club house/teenager room/guest bungalow..whatever you're heart desires.

introducing the tumbleweed tiny house....

they have designs from 65 square feet to 310 square feet. how cool would it be to be able to live/work/entertain in a space this small. although this lifestyle is not for me...i love my shoes too much after would make a great closet!!

what about us..
