Vogue bikes

It's time for bicycle again. I found this round up for the best bike in 2009 from Vogue. I know it's a year old. I don't think there's an expiration date for chicness.

Housing project in Helsingborg by Wilhelmson Arkitekter

pictures by peter thuvander and danyal taylan

This by far is the most interesting looking project I ever seen. Stockholm architects Wilhelmson Arkitekter have designed a housing project with windows that look like gilded picture frames. Designed by professor Anders Wilhelmson, the project is to be built overlooking the sea in Helsingborg, Sweden.

History of the Color Wheels

I recently came across this article about color wheels on colourlovers. 18th century color wheel designs look so marvelous. How did I forget what I've learned in 6th grand science class that Sir Isaac Newton has invented the first color wheel. He arranged red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, and violet into a natural progression on a rotating disk. As the disk spins, the colors blur together so rapidly that the human eye sees white. From there the organization of color has taken many forms, from tables and charts, to triangles and wheels.

 Two color circles are included as illustrations in the 1708 edition of 
Traité de la peinture en mignature, 
an artist's manual attributed to "C.B."
(often assumed to be Claude Boutet, or the publisher, Christophe Ballard).
Ignaz Schiffermüller, 1772 & Goethe, 1810

 Schäffer's principal colors were red, yellow, blue, white, black, brown, and green.

Guppy love...

My all time favorite. I used to have many guppies in my aquarium when I was a kid. I just love the way they look. Especially the ones with big tails. They look like women in beautiful gowns.

More gray rooms

Who said gray is boring. Gray has pretty cool effect if it's done on right material. I came across this post on apartmenttherapy the other day. And found these lovely gray rooms from Italian furniture company, Seven.

Jon Macnair

Looking at Jon Macnair's portfolio makes me confused. These characters look so crazy! What are they doing? Can anyone tell me what is going on here?? It's just scary, crazy and funny in the same time. 

some of these are also available for sale as Prints.

The hand-drawn animals of Nacho Gil

“The Animals” is a personal project of Nacho Gil. All hand-drawn!! “No programming or 3D or whatsoever,” was used to create these illustrations, claims Nacho Gil. It’s truly a peculiar project where the philosophy that lies beneath the sketches is the face of the animal which is designed with interconnected vectors. These vectors create a rather diamond or cubist-like image and make something as simple as the face of an animal so creative and so digital!

Cuckoo Clocks | What I want now!

When I was a kid I was mesmerized by an idea of a little cuckoo bird that comes out from a little house. I remember seeing an original black forest cuckoo clock at my friend's place and coming home asking for my mom to get one for our living room. At the time cuckoo clocks were made from richly dark wood with elaborated designs, she didn't think that would look good in our plain and simple middle class home. She was probably right. Back then there were not that many cool modern designs to chose from. Not until recently that I found so many of these popping up everywhere.
