Totally Trippy Pendant Lights by Bertjan Pot

Friday, November 23rd, 2012

Yes, that was intentional. I just couldn’t help myself. 🙂 I’ve said it before, and I am sure I’ll say it again: The Dutch are so crazy creative and their designs are always so unique – what is it that makes them think not just outside of the box, but way, way beyond it? Whenever […]

Paper Cutting – 5 Amazing Artists You Must Check Out

Monday, January 30th, 2012

I just recently discovered paper cutting (how did I not know about this before?!?) and was blown away by the things that these skilled artists are creating with just paper and scissors (or knives).

Warming Metal Wall Decor

Monday, December 13th, 2010

This post is not only about wall decor but decorating in general, and decorating nurseries in particular. It’s one of the most fun types of rooms to design, and you have free reins to use items, materials and colors you normally wouldn’t. Having said that, I have to confess that I prefer nurseries with a […]

5 Unusual Wall Mirrors

Friday, July 30th, 2010

People have enjoyed looking at their reflection since the beginning of time. Historians think the first “mirrors” were likely pools of water, and I would have loved to be there when the first person ever saw his or her reflection. I wonder what they were thinking? I know the first time my dog saw herself […]
