Oh, hello friend: you are loved.

Oh, hello friend: you are loved.
It's always fun to look forward to things, don't you agree? So I put together a small list of things I'm looking forward to this month. What kind of things are you looking forward to? 1. With a new year comes brand new items in the shop - I'm really excited about all the new items we'll be getting in the shop over the coming months. 2.

layered rugs I started playing with the idea of layering rugs in our living room yesterday when we threw our new hide (which has metallic spots!) over the Moroccan rug that currently lines the floor. I’m kind of feeling it. How does everyone else feel about the idear?

However a vital component to creating and evolving is being mindful that we must restore our souls and refuel the creativity bucket…I try to prioritize at the start of the year by taking a few days to focus on quietening my mind, while giving my whole body some still time. This helps me create a new stage for the year, for new story telling. With with my creative button refreshed I went on a quick buying trip to San Diego. There my fav find was this floral sink, for which I now have to find a bathroom!!!!

NESTREST Doesn't that picture look so peaceful and inviting? I think I'm in love. That dangling, serene little pod is a NESTREST, designed by Paris' Daniel Pouzet and Fred Frety. It's described as an over-sized bird's nest that's perfect for relaxation, meditation and open-air conversations.

About « Kootut murut Hello! I’m Jutta and this is my blog Kootut murut. I started Kootut murut when we were about to buy a rintamamiestalo, a certain type of house built after WW II.

Vintage Web Design. Vector Illustration. - 106036049 All Images Refine Your Search Save to a Lightbox ▼ Firefly Solar Lamp Table by Vuk Dragovic & Yanko Design Replacing Candle-lit Dinners With Firefly The Firefly Table is honestly a very neat concept that I can foresee being snapped into production. Intended for outdoor cafés and restaurants, the idea is to use a solar lamp instead of romantic candlelights for illumination. The centrally placed lamp pops up to emit a soft glow while projecting any form of branding (via stencils) to the floor-space below. Imagine being “popped the question” in this unique fashion, or even attracting sponsors with this extra added value.

Messy chunky beach waves... Easy tutorial! - StumbleUpon I'm one of those people who was cursed with stick straight thin hair that hates to curl. I used to do the traditional "braid your hair before bed" and rag curling tricks to get nice beachy waves, but they never ended up turning out right the next day. I didn't like the fact that the process took a whole night, and I had no way of knowing what my hair was going to look like when I pulled the braids/rags out. Do you know how nerve-wracking that is, especially if you have an event to go to (*cough* my brother's wedding)? Would the curls be too tight? would they end up in funny places? - Design Inspiration and Wall Art The boutique hotel chain's second Los Angeles location features a giant 40-foot wall facing 6th Avenue, where up-and-coming artists are regularly invited to create site-specific works. It's an ever-changing outdoor exhibition space: each artist's mural has a lifespan of about three months before it's painted over and replaced with a new piece. Mario's mural at the Standard incorporated trademark elements of his style like muted colours and clean architectural forms. Trees and clouds referenced his love of nature to "create an image that transports feeling." After producing parts of the mural in his studio in Berkeley and on-site in LA, Mario hand-painted the background. He then attached huge printed cutouts to the wall with super-strength wallpaper paste for a textured and layered effect.

Decoratum - Pair of Armchairs with Leather `Sling Seats` and Ball Handles Sorry, this item from Decoratum has been sold. A stylish pair of armchairs with leather 'sling seats' and ball handles, attributed to Lina Bo Bardi. We say 'attributed' only because we have not actually found a picture of these in the reference books, but the style and those 'ball' handles have all the trademarks of one of her creations; plus we found them in the same home as other undisputed and documented Bo Bardi furniture. Lina Bo Bardi, born Achillina Bo in Rome on 5 December 1914, died 20 March 1992 in São Paulo was an Italian- Brazilian modernist architect. She graduated in Rome, before moving to Milan where she started her career working with Gio Ponti.
