Super Shiny Lights | What I want now!

The search continue for my kitchen lamp. Now I know that I want something light and airy over my breakfast nook... I was looking at some glass chandelier but that's too predictable. Then I found these shiny lamps. I'm not talking just any shiny, sparkly things. I'm talking reflective shiny lamps. Reflect everything like a mirror. This is a pretty damn good idea. They reflect so much light and blend in to the environment. 

 Porter Pendant $724.90

Copper Shade Pendant $610.00

 Light Shade Shade 70 + Chandelier $2,178.00

Ortenzia Suspension Cluster Light $2,340.00

Belle Soiree Pendant Light $1,040.00

Selfridges Candy

Some pretty candy in vintage milk bottles. Originally from Selfridges website, but now no longer available. There are some cool stuff there. Too bad... it's not a U.S. store.

Flaming Lips House

One of a kind house designed by Fitzsimmons Architects. Michelle Martin-Coyne, a photographer and artist, and her husband Wayne, front man of the Flaming Lips live here. In this mid century modern, folk art, cave, glam rock, psychedelic, chic (Just when you don't think these words belong in one sentence...)

Cool Duracell Ads

A student work by Spencer Bigum. A playful take on a character based packaging. Perfectly cut out where it needed. Simple clean and impactful.

Marc Johns' illustrations

I came across these quirky illustration by Marc Johns on Flickr and I just couldn't help it. They are so funny and cute. I enjoy them so much, I probably went through the whole library and looked through everything. They are simple medium, just ink and watercolor. The writings and the character design are genius. There are some great illustrations with nice details and typography there, but I didn't think they are as funny as simpler ones.
