Superleggera chair

Skinny and stylish...1957 'superleggera' chair designed by Gio Ponti for Cassina. This timeless design was inspired by the traditional chiavari chairs ponti had seen at the seaside, but so strong and light that a child could lift one up on a single finger.

John Derian's house

Talented designer, John Derian, has his house feature on The Boston Globe. It's nice to see how he incoporates flea market finds and his furniture line into his 789 Cape Cod home.

The Chap




I was always a fan of Non Format's designs. I didn't know they do music video now. This video is really fun to look at. I also love simplicity of a white background and high contrast imageries.

"Life’s incredibly boring. I don’t say that in an effort to seem vaguely amusing but the secret of life is that there’s no secret, it’s just exceedingly boring.

Gary Anderson, creator of the recycling symbol

Anderson was a 23-year-old USC Architecture graduate when he entered the Container Corporation of America’s design contest to create what would become the universal symbol for recycling. From Wikipedia: The 500 entries to the competition were judged by designers recognized as world leaders in graphics and industrial art, including Saul Bass, Herbert Bayer, James Miho, Herbert Pinzke and Eliot Noyes. According to Anderson: “Angela Davis had just shot up the courthouse and the Manson murders had just happened. I wanted to move away from that, from the Haight-Ashbury poster art with its amorphous organic shapes to create something simpler and cleaner.”

Chalkboard Globe | What I want now!

I'm so obsessed about chalkboards right now as I recently blogged about chalkboard walls. When I saw this chalkboard globe on beachbungalow8, I know I have to have it. I love the look of that matt black. This would look so chic against any white furniture at my place!

Colorful people

Beautiful photographs by Phyllis Galembo. These are reflection of the ritual adornment and spirituality of masquerade in Nigeria, Benin and Burkina Faso in West Africa. I love the juxtaposition of colors, textures and patterns.

Beautiful photos of The Aqualillies, synchronized swimmers, with a touch of old Hollywood glamour. The group is fast becoming an entertainment must for private parties held at Southern California’s hotel and home pools.

Mike the Headless Chicken

Mike the Headless Chicken of Fruita was a Wyandotte chicken that lived for 18 months after his head had been mostly cut off. The owner fed him with a mixture of milk and water via an eyedropper; he was also fed small grains of corn. Seen here sometime between May 1945 and October 1946, lived for 1½ years after a farmer cut his head off with an ax – but leaving his brain stem intact, which allowed him to live. You go mike!

Chalkboard walls

Sometimes I just wanna write things down or draw on the walls. All I need are these Black Chalkboards. These look pretty cool against white walls.
If you want to add a chalkboard wall to your home, then try this fabulous product from Benjamin Moore.  It's less than $13.00 and it can change the look of the entire space. 

And, if you want a MAGNETIC chalkboard wall, try priming the space with this magnetic primer first, and then covering with the Benjamin Moore chalkboard paint.
