a 1970s italy.

Finally uploading the last of my Europe albums.
I miss that place more than anything.

Looking for (yet again) more ideas for the room,
I now rummage across a 1970s Italian styling.

Opposite of the typical minimal Swedish design,
the stylist's fascination with Interior Deco is now
transforming clients lkea, H&M, John Lewis and NK
to houses of vintage, texture and intrigue.

Please await for the table that caused me one of the
largest eye-gasms this summer.

frosty surprise.

On these bipolar, but still verrrrry much hot days
the trinket-y sounds of an Ice-Cream truck is enough to get you
excited & to ignore all the sweat that is to come
as you bolt for that burst of coolness.

The only thing I can think of better than the unanticipated truck
is a pop-up icecream store that basically gets you smiling
at the sight of it.

is just the perfect balance of hot and cold.

Pink chairs and 2d parasols complete your little fantasy

Frosty exterior alluding to the frosty goods it contains.

Thumbs up for the branding.

disposable treats.

It's quite sad really...
I've noticed that lately, everything around me is disposable

But just cause something doesn't seem worth it,
doesn't mean that we should try it or do it...

Merging the old-school handmade craft with modern disposable-ness.

One time only but still intricate <3.

elegance lies in simplicity.

There is nothing more gorgeous than simple lines & structure.

Ania Kuczynska's
L'Avventura Fall/Autumn 2011/2012 collection
introduces some pretty sweet basic based accessories.
Thisssss is the winner in my eye.
I won't even bother with the price tag--
thank goodness for the look

As weet as their accessories are, not a word of a lie
they're collections are pretty nice also...

Only problem is the female model sort of reminds me
of the chicks one would see in a horror film.....
that girl's gaze could rip through your soul.

budget constraints.

i love being frugal because it also forces one to be creative.

P3 armchair by Recession Design. RD design objects have the common characteristic of being made from materials easily available in DIY shops and assembled using everyday tools.

Recession Design makes objects from everyday tools
& easily manipulable materials :).

The poor man's material shop is the best one
cause that is how you'll get to reeeeallllyyyy think

God save McQueen.

Reminiscent to the tragic loss in Feb2010.
A range of talents have come together to continually
praise & spread his genius and works.

Babette Pauthier is a chick with quite a bang.
Her works range from fashion to portraiture to landscapes...
but her kick at photography and fine arts is what
brings us these images that glorify McQueens
contributions to the fashion world over this dwelling death.



Director: Babette Pauthier // Cinematographer : Benoit Soler // Editing and Compositing : Edouard Mailaender // Color Grading : Mosh̩ Dichi // Assistants : Robert Outch and Matt Cutts // Music : Anonyme РConfitemini Domino (1), Vincent Dumestre // Lighting : Prolighting // Studio : The Second Floor // All fashion by Alexander McQueen.
The eulogy-esque qualities of this whole thing is pretty ironic.
Such a reflection of the designer's original inspiration & well.. you know.

turn it...

(see the pun there?! SEE IT!?? SEEE ITTTT?!??!)

This charging tap charges pretty much anything that
has a USB connector-- cellphones, digital cameras
& of course, all them Apple products.

Plug it in, turn the tap.
Too cute.

swatch X kidrobot.

I am having a jizzzzzzz-fest just looking at images
of these plastic moulds of happiness.

I can't imagine a better combination of graphic/industrial
extravaganza than this. I WANTT ONE SOOOO BADLLYYYY.

For those poor souls that don't know the magic orgasms
of Dunny and Munnys (please educate urself now && now)
Dunny is Kidrobot's iconic & highly collected vinyl bunny toy.
Swatch, pairing up with Kidrobot release a series of 8 Gents
each of course with their complimentary 3" Dunny.

throwback (foot)prints.

Turn a quick corner and peer into the world of...
'The Mad Decent' Crew.

From clothes to mix tapes. Their funkay-licious outbursts have
come up with various club-appropriate mixes
(yup, the type that you whip your hair to after a few too many drinks)

Presented by the shoe company, PRO-Keds,
got these little L.A. Jammers to release where they're heading
and what their bobbing heads will be up to.

i could live like this.

In the current Toronto heat I'm not sure who in their right
mind would want to pull a Tarzan and live outside.

BUT in Brazillllllllll its a whole other story,
with the nice fresh breeze combing through your hair,
& the mild warmth of the sun keeping your body temperature fine
lying down in a hammock seems nothing short of paradise.

To my fellow RSID alumnis (awww yeah!),
this is such a non-cheesy execution of the
"outside-in, inside-out" / "one with nature" /
"really trying to erase the boundaries
between the interior and nature"
(don't lie. we've all done it.) b.s.
We always manage to con people into thinking we believe.

Loft 24/7 residence is the epitome of Tarzan the billionaire,
waaaaaay classier than the treehouse.

2700 sq ft of limestone, rough stone, steel, glass, && wood paneling.
...oh so modernista.
