DIY Fractal Mirror

The price tag attached to fractal mirrors can be quite steep (too steep for me). How about making one of your own. Home DZine shows us how with a step-by-step. Just keep in mind that the site is South African therefore some of the products may have slightly different brand names here.

Organize your Bookcase in Stop-Motion

A few weeks ago, I posted about organizing your books by colour. I just came across this video that does it in stop-motion. I wonder how long this took to do?

Books By the Foot

One of my most current obsessions is colour coded bookcases. What a great way to organize all of those prized possessions! For those of us that are still working on our libraries of masterpieces, companies like Books By The Foot can offer you a jump-start. Whether you want books in particular colours or on specific subjects they’ve got them! You choose what you are looking for and how much you want, and they will send you actual books in all of your specifications!

The Hanger Chair by Philippe Malouin

Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you The Hanger Chair. I must say this is a pretty clever little design by Montreal born, London based designer Philippe Malouin. Philippe studied industrial design (a man after my own heart) in Montreal. Freelancing for english designer Tom Dixon moved him to London where he now has his own studio to practice a more experimental approach to furniture and interior design.

Please take a moment to look at Philippe’s website (my other favourite is the Dervish Lamp). I first learned about Phillipe on another cool blog called Travails.

The Suitcase. The Chair.

Oh my god. I am so incredibly in love with these designs by Katie Thompson. Katie has an amazing ability to see the beauty and hidden purpose in the items that she chooses for her pieces. My favourite, the suitcase chair really inspires me to look at every day items a little more closely – stop to smell the roses around you one might say. All of my close friends know that I am determined to make a suitcase chair of my own sometime soon, I will let you know how it goes!

Please visit Katie’s website, Recreate for more pictures and more of Katie’s products.
