design*sponge is one of my favorite design sites and there are always ALWAYS fun DIY projects to choose from. this grocery list/planner/storage box is right up my alley and i'm actually going to try it. most DIY projects i post are more "dream projects". this one is so practical and really helps my slightly anal tendencies when it comes to grocery shopping, budgeting, and organizing. check out the article here by kate over at d*s.

sculptural photography? i think it's amazing. this project was a collaboration by photographers Szymond Roginski and Kasia Korzeniecki for fashion designer Anya Kuczynska. the pieces are inspired by cubism, made from photographs and pieced together in 3d forms to make this beautiful display.

i received an email from kate williams of polli design yesterday with a wonderful before and after project and images. i knew my readers would appreciate this renovation as much as i have.
The renovations were designed by all female designers –Tess had the vision, her mum Ro Murray was the architect, Ro Murray’s school friend the interior designer, Ro Murray’s partner Sheri the lighting consultant (which is all incredibly eco friendly), and Sheri’s university friend the colour consultant.
The renovated terrace also became a Polli jewelry design, with Terrace earrings, necklaces, and a brooch.

leave it to las vegas to come up with the most extravagant and amazing interiors. i just love this beijing noodle no.9 at ceasars palace by design spirits co., ltd! everything about it. the ceiling/wall details, floor finish, furniture, fish tanks, the white...everywhere, and even the glasses on the tables that look like goldfish in cups. it's so sweet.

This flat pack stool is easy to assemble and easy to transport. It is also extremely light. The most distinctive characteristic of the ‘1-2-3 sit’ stool is the joinery (dovetail joint) and the combined folded steel and oak wood which represents a new method of joinery. It is simple and effective, that’s why we call it the ‘1-2-3 sit ’. (via design/milk)

"The ReBuilding Center, located in Portland, OR, is a downright amazing resource. This non-profit aims to make home repair affordable to everyone through salvaged and reclaimed materials. They have a huge selection of just about everything that structurally makes up a home (sinks, cabinets, lighting, tile, windows, doors, lumber, etc...), offer deconstruction services, and sell furniture made from reclaimed materials."
i really like the furniture on their website too!

this could be really fun used in the right application.
The through-colored medium density fiberboard (MDF) technology is already very popular in Europe where it is used in the innovative design markets, including office furniture, molding, door skins, drawer fronts and store fixtures. Now, wood product manufacturers including displays, furniture and wood paneling as well as some craftspeople are showing strong interest in this new and innovative wood product. (via)
