Ikea Önskedröm Collection with Olle Eksell

One of the earliest posts I did when I started this blog was on a wonderful book about the work of Swedish artist and designer, Olle Eksell.

TGIF videobreak 5.29.15

Whoooo boy- It’s the last weekend of May! What the what? Time for a massive video break! First up, I’ve been really enjoying Brandon Flowers‘ latest release, The Desired Effect.

But fo

The New Bohemians book by Justina Blakeney

When it comes to my professional work, I guess it would fall under more modern, clean and minimal design principles. I’ve always found that ironic because I love collecting things and having multiple layers and vignettes of objects around me. If you saw my office, “sparse” would probably be the last word that comes to mind. As much as I love new modern designs, I also have such a fondness for, and a

This is so random. So. Random. But I love OK GO videos, so… yah. They apparently did this really crazy complex commercial for this Chinese furniture retailer. Anyway. Always fun to see the creative scenarios they come up with. (via)

Modernism Week 2015

Last month I had the great opportunity to attend Modernism Week in Palm Springs and to be part of this year’s #psmodsquad on Instagram. For those of you who aren’t familiar with it, Modernism Week happens once a year (with a “mini” preview weekend in October). It’s a week-long celebration of the appreciation of mid-century architecture and design, with exhibitions, lectures, and tours th
