You'd need to be a naturally early riser, Sleeping in would be a cow with all that light coming in, then you'd always have to have the bed made. and what if you're sick and need to be in bed while your parner is having a party? I'd far rather be in a small, comfortable bedroom where if I can sleep in, all I need to do is pull down my blind.

Inspired by their mutual obsession with the classic AC Cobra 427, a pair of Polish designers created this amazing living room collection made of American classic car parts from the 60’s. The pieces in the “Spirit of 427″ collection – the sofa, an armchair, a coffee table, office desk, and standing lamp – are all handcrafted from original and collector car parts such as bumpers, fuel inlets, lighthouses, and leather from Bentley and Ferrari factory stencils. "Our top priority was to make as high quality aluminum body as possible," says Andrzej Sapierzyński and Łukasz Siódmok of Poland-based LA Design Studio. "We wanted to create something really unique that has the real spirit of the 427!" Designers Łukasz Siódmok and Andrzej Sapierzyński

Do-Lo-Rez sofa surely will be a center of attention in your living room!
Piodão Group has launched a brand new collection of rugs called Prêt-à-Porter that are just as exciting and colorful as their previous pieces . The “Any” rug, designed by Pedro & Rita Ferreira (Pedrita Studio – Lisbon, Portugal) follow the traditional Portuguese multicolor crochet hot-cloth’s where no threat is wasted and is truly a statement of sustainability. Following the brand’s philosophy, the wool left over from the factory’s regular production is re-rolled and reintroduced into the manufacturing process minimizing waste and environmental impact. The resulting material is then utilized to create a one-of-a-kind “Any” with a strong visual character reflecting the factory weekly production. The “Play” set of rugs, designed by Luis Nascimento & David Rodrigues (Lisbon, Portugal), is based on a classic video game.

I fell off a ladder today and sprained my wrist hence this is a post I had ready to go for next week. One fingered typing is no fun but I know you'll forgive me when you see this gorgeous house.

Before I began this post, I looked up the definition of neutral just so I could be sure of what I thought I already understood. After all, beige and grey (or gray) are both colors, right? At what point does a room stop being neutral? The definition of neutral (as referring to color) is: (a) gray; without hue; of zero chroma; achromatic. (b) matching well with many or most other colors or shades, as white or beige. I've selected the above images of neutral rooms that I like because they use textures, patterns and shapes to add interest.
