Pinterest Picks: May 14
1. Hotel Daniel in Vienna: Love the industrial vibe here that is tempered with high-end wood and a classy look.
2. Woman by Common Projects: I always go for a good wedge, and leather and wood are a favorite combination, especially when the woodgrain shows off nicely.
3. Uniform Wares by Six: This entire collateral line is beautiful. Six shows off the new watch line while keeping things clean and minimal.
4. Molecular Cuisine from ThinkGeek: I am often sucked into the science of food, and Molecular Gastronomy kits are the perfect way to dabble in this. The packaging of this kit is pretty nicely done, as well.
5. Femme Chair by Rik ten Velden: Designed using a single rope and sailor’s knots, this chair is both simple and very textural.
6. Owl: Wish I had a source for this (damn you, Tumblr!) - if you happen to come across it, please let me know. Just love the contrast as well as the content in this piece.

Pinterest Picks: Apr 20
1. Carved stone basin: With grain and color that makes it look like wood, this is easy maintenance. I originally thought I was a marine grade wood piece, but either way, the shape is super.
2. Moss terrarium by themosserstore: If you’ve followed my blog here, you know I have a thing for terrariums. This one is a minimalist version that requires only a small amount of care. Great look for an end table, in a bookshelf, or in a grouping on the dining table.
3. Water bottle by Eva Solo: This bottle is made from BPA-free plastic (I prefer glass,) but the shape and the great loop handle in different colors makes this a winner.
4. Industrial barn door by Ochre: Combined with the polished concrete floors and clean modern furniture, this space looks pulled together and spare yet still very livable.
5. Amy Neunsinger photography for House Beautiful: I love everything about this. The photo itself is stunning with the light streaming in, the outdoor space is inviting with multiple seating areas, and the overall vibe is relaxing.
6. Sky High branding for Radisson Blu Hotel: I like the proportions and attenuated look of this type. Of course I was drawn to the image showing how the letterforms were constructed.

Twitter Roundup: Mar 29
I’ve been a little slow on Twitter this week - things have been packed pretty full, but I try to check in when I can. I’ve found that using Flipboard to see if I missed anything big (especially tweets that link to images,) can really help me keep up to date. Here are a few things I found this week, from images to articles to a funny quote:
Spa House by Metropolis Design – This house makes me ready for a vacation - love the horizontality and the openness. via @designmilk
Strawberry sorbet – I love the simplicity of this recipe, and wonder if the at-home cook would make it look as appealing. via @thekitchn
Modern phrases we owe to Shakespeare – Spend some time reading this list, some of these are really surprising. via @brainpicker
Calligraffiti – Since I learned calligraphy at a young age, I have always been interested in lettering. This site runs the gamut from digital to in situ wall art. via @BlairThomson
Ben Brooks on Calendar Apps – I have a personal distate with the waay calendar apps are presented (please stop trying to look like a day-timer) and Ben Brooks nails it on this one. via @patrickrhone
Q: How many nerds does it take to ruin a joke?A: So. Unless I’m missing something here, I think you meant “geeks.” And, “riddle.” Proceed.
Fab sale rescheduled!
The sale will include a limited range of pieces, so be sure to check it out on Monday for the widest selection. I never have my work at sale prices, so this is a big opportunity if you’ve been eyeing some of my necklaces. Also, I will be debuting an earring as well!
