Sky Garden House I think one of the reasons that many are skeptical about environmental design is because they think its terribly complex and costly. It does take a bit more effort on the front end, but it's definitely not rocket science. This architecture by Guz Architects is a wonderfully developed minimalistic design with a curvilinear flare that really brings out the organic coverings. I'm most impressed with how design facilitates the needs of the plants and shrubs located throughout the house.

Cut it out!! ......canvas tutorial I love a wall I can read! Take your favorite quotes and put them up on the walls with this easy, inexpensive idea! Supplies: Canvas (found mine at Hobby Lobby in a 2 pack for $7.99) Fabric contact paper spray paint staple gun printer and exacto knife or a cricut machine Step 1: Cover your canvas in the fabric you selected and secure it with a staple gun on the backside of the wood frame. Step 2: Using contact paper cut out the letters of your saying on a circut machine. Position the letters on the canvas. Step 3: When all the letters have been placed, spray a thick layer of spray paint over the entire canvas. Step 4: When it is dry, peel the letters off. Hang it on your wall and enjoy! another design option: Instead of covering the canvas with fabric, just place your letters onto the canvas, spray and peel. **edited to add: I get several emails asking about how to get the letters to stick better and prevent the paint from bleeding underneath.

The easiest shirt ever I thought this shirt was easy to make, but it doesn’t compare to the one I made for Isabel this weekend. She started describing a shirt she’d seen: square, slightly cropped, very drapey. I asked her to draw a picture and she drew a rectangle. Yes, I can do that. We found the drapiest fabric in the house, a fairly loose knit left over from Rosie’s weekend project. I measured her, cut out two rectangles, sewed up the sides and shoulders, cut out the neckline, and 10 minutes after she asked for it, she had a new top. To make your own you will need half a yard of drapey knit fabric (a bit more if you want it longer). Decide where you want the sleeves to come to. Put the two rectangles together with the right sides of the fabric facing each other. You’re done!

With the great response to my pirate ship bedroom blog, I searched the internet for an even more amazing bedroom and I found this guy’s trailer. Meet Matthew Hofmann. “Many of my clients are in Santa Barbara, so after looking at some tiny yet still expensive condos and lofts, I purchased and remodeled a 1978, 25-foot Airstream trailer on a whim on Craigslist.” “Material scraps from the Airstream, pictured above before the remodel, were sent to a recycling yard. My words: I think it’s great he made the trailer green. “For the new dining area, I replaced the existing tabletop with Cali Bamboo natural strand bamboo while reusing the table posts. “By removing the table posts and lowering the top to seat level, it also converts to what I call a media lounge where I can play movies on my 27-inch iMac. My words: Amazingly beautiful! My words: Excuse me, The Germans? Like this:
