Fabulous Parisian Apartment

Loving this apartment that appeared in Cote Paris.   I would probably add a bit more color but I love the eclectic mix of items, the great art and the fabulous door/wall to the bathroom.

Woven Lampshades

There is a fabulous collaboration between Australian design house, Koskela and The Tjanpi Desert Weavers to create lampshades utilizing woven and wrapped grass.  The Whimsy shades that I make by wrapping and weaving fabric celebrating the wire form would look great hanging alongside them.  Top pic via Vogue Living (great video on that page too), bottom pics are my shades.

Pat Hickman

The texture, shape and layering in Pat Hickman's work is beautiful.  What inspiration!

The Daniel Hotel In Vienna

Spotted this post on a new hotel in Vienna on Yatzer.   Not sure I love the bedrooms as they are bit stark but the bathrooms, bakery, store, fabulous door signs and details are so creative and wonderfully done.
