Wednesday

Blinded by colors...It's my usual Wednesday. So many colorful things to design, so little time.

Grace Jones

This iconic photo of Grace Jones was taken by Jean-Paul Goude. It's kinda cool to see that it was manually retouched because they didn't have Photoshop at the time.

Bonsai Tree Houses by Takanori Aiba

Artist Takanori Aiba worked as a maze illustrator for Japanese fashion magazine POPYE since late 1970s. The following decade he worked as an architect and finally in 2003 decided to merge the two crafts—the design of physical space and the drawing of labyrinths—into these incredibly detailed tiny worlds. Using craft paper, plastic, plaster, acrylic resin, paint and other materials Aiba constructs sprawling miniature communities that wrap around bonsai trees, lighthouses, and amongst the cliffs of nearly vertical islands. More work from Aiba here

Renovation week 27 | picking the paint!

Here is what so called the fun part where we get to pick colors. I'm not so sure it's that fun for me. It's quite difficult to guess how the color would look in an actual space. Below is our inspiration for the bedroom walls. I don't want any strong color. I just want something light and classic. I'm trying to make my life less complicated here. We don't have any furniture yet so we don't want any color to dictate our furniture and bedding choice. My theory for picking colors for this house is that we use light colors in smaller/darker rooms, and use dark colors in traffic areas. 


In the mean time we try to make this process as painless as possible. The key is to go in to the store and pick out only a few colors you like and quickly leave. If you stick around you will get so overwhelmed. It's easy to get side track when there are too many options. That's me getting blinded by so many swatches. 
We picked out some swatches and tested on our master bedroom walls. They look like all white swatches but on the wall they turn out so much darker don't they? We are most likely to go with Cloud White here because it has less tint out of all the choices.

Happening at the same time at our kitchen... We have our cabinets painted Simply White. This was an easy choice for us since we know we want all the cabinets bright white but still has a little warm tone to it. I think this color is perfect because it's not too yellow and not too white. We also picked Shore LIne for the wall color. I think this color is matching the color of our countertop really well.

Master bathroom cabinet, we are going with the darker one for a contrast. And hopefully it will hide the stains well since this would be our main bathroom from now.

Lanvin Autumn/Winter 2013

At 2013 Lavin ready to wear collection, the highlight of the show was the jewelry. I especially love the bee brooches and necklaces. As a storyboard designer, I'm often asked to design storyboard with crazy looking jewelry implicating words that emphasis on a pop culture phenomenon such as "bling bling". Yet I find these new take on oversized jewelry refreshing and exciting.
