POSTER FRIDAY// ghin

It’s here—the last Friday of 2009. So, fittingly, Poster Friday is a calendar: And a very pretty one at that. Designed by Ghin, a london based creative, who said: I decided to lay out the calendar on a single page, making it possible to view the whole year at a glance.

bits and pieces

I saw these on Design*Sponge recently and fell hopelessly head over heels for a few of the details. They are all from a job by Jessica Helgerson, an interior designer based out of Portland, OR. Thia lamp, by furniture designer Kenneth Cobonpue, is absolutely beautiful. And those knitted seats by Christien Meindertsma? Awesome; They’re like … Continue reading

whiskey social.

According to teroforma, These Whiskey Stones are ideal for chilling your favorite spirit without diluting its flavor—just add three chilled stones, let stand for 5 minutes and enjoy. They are milled in Vermont by the oldest soapstone workshop in the US. Whiskey has become part of my holiday tradition… I know how that sounds, but … Continue reading

the future of magazines…

Am I any more holiday inclined today? No, not really. Was I pleasantly surprised to be reminded of … Continue reading

stuck on you

I know this blog title is a little ridiculous given we’re talking about tape (stuck, tape, get it? Zing!) But oh well, who cares, if a girl can use tape to turn rooms into geometric wonderlands, I can use a pun. The girl is Rebecca Ward. She hails from Austin, TX, and most recently did … Continue reading
