I so love this villa renovated by Roman architects Claudio Lazzarini and Carl Pickering. The stark white mixed with the wonderful patterns really add fun and dimension. To find out more info on this villa in Postiano go to Yatzer and read more about the architects here.

"Kurage is composed of optical fiber. By bending the optical fiber, the whole area is illuminated outside of the immediate area of the light, and together, they can make very soft light. The brightness can be adjusted by the size of the curve." Can you say awesome?!

Inscape is a wonderful company and after spending 3 days in Toronto with them I love them even more. They have launched new product that was on display at IIDEX/Neocon. Their lines are clean, modern, and storage and functionality are the main factors that make this line superior. They also have a filing line and modular wall system that I will use on soon to come projects.

I am staying at the Hotel Le Germain while in Toronto this week. In doing my research into this hotel I realized how cool it actually is going to be. First, it is located in the middle of downtown, walking distance if we decide to go out after dinner. Second, the decor is absolutely gorgeous. I actually want to live in the library. Really. Third, there is a roof top putting green?! Plus, they have a spa and an awesome restaurant/bar located inside the hotel. Do I have to leave?

UK architects Ullmayer Sylvester designed the plywood-and-pine Summerhouse at the rear of an elongated Victorian garden in North London; the budget was £35,000. The light-filled structure functions as an artist studio, garden shed, table tennis venue, and kids’ hangout; an 8-meter-long swath of mirror foil installed along the doglegged north side elevation reflects the foliage and helps the structure disappear into the landscape; the polycarbonate ceiling panels filter light from above.

I love records and if you have a collection of your own you will understand the hardships of finding good storage for records. Atocha Design has put out this amazing record cabinet. Each cabinet is custom built and is available in a number of woods. It can also be built to accomodate singles, CD's, DVD's, or components.
