My New Apartment

I've been busy at work in my new apartment. Below are some pictures of my recent work.

I put these book shelves up myself. I obviosuly still need more as the books on the floor were too big to fit onto the wall shelves. It still looks a bit too messy for my taste.

I found this amazing 1930s dresser in a local vintage furniture store. I just love the curves!

Art Collecting for the Not So Wealthy

D.D. has been collecting art for some time now and he recently purchased some outsider art pieces from ebay for somewhere in the neighborhood of $20. I have always wanted to collect but always imagined that it was beyond my reach. I've been doing some research and have come across some pretty amazing things. This one below can be found on and comes framed for $90. I'm in love with it! Maybe i'll cave in and get it instead of that new pair of shoes i've been eyeing....

Design Inspiration: Neon and Retail

These pictures are a bit old, but I found them in my files and they were just another example of the use of neon. These were Louis Vuitton's window displays.

Design Inspiration: Grey Goose Headquarters

Antwerp designers Puresang have completed the interior of a bar at the headquarters of vodka brand Grey Goose in Brussels, Belgium.

The bar features a faceted wall composed of blue, triangular mirror-tiles and has a conference table at one end of the bar. A conference table at the end of the bar? Can I please attend those meetings?

I really love the look and feel of the room, it's almost cavernous or spaceship of the future dining room. I relaly enjooy the use of facets and reflective materials. It works for me, but I'd be afraid to have too many drinks in here, it might get very disorienting very quickly.

Repotting: IN NEON!

This time of year I always have plants on the mind. Mine have been growing so quickly since the weather has warmed up. One of the major pluses of the new apartment is the abundance of sunlight compared to the lack of it in my current space. I'm sure my plants are going to be so much happier. Since they have been growing so much, I have had thinking about repotting soon - since they will be reaching the limits of their current containers. I've been looking around for pretty pots and I found the ones below at Adonde and I am obsessing over them. I just love the combo of the wood grain and the neon pink and the gray. It's just perfect!

The nearest location that they are sold is Montreal and even so they are pretty the very least they are a very good source of inspiration for the sort of container I am looking for.
