Less is more

As I am learning more and more about the blog-o-sphere, I have come to realize, that posting daily is not the way to go for me. In the future, I will be posting once a month, with more in-depth content on one subject.

Speaking of simplifying things, check out these great tips via Simplifyingfabulous on how to organize and simplify your home office.

Magazine in a Matchbox?

Yes, you heard me right, the LavenderRoom creates mini-magazines in a matchbox. The magazines include vintage images, quotes and even a match, if you wanted to burn the zine after reading it. Cute gift idea, don’t you think?

“365 Surface Patterns”-Challenge

What a great project idea! The surface pattern designer Alma Loveland is creating one surface pattern design each day – for 365 days! I’m so inspired, that I want to do this myself. But let’s be honest, I just don’t have the time right now! 😉 In the meantime, check out how Ollibird’s patterns are coming along.

DIY Rope Dog Leash

As a dog owner and designer I want my dog to look stylish as well. Mungo and Maud’s rope collars and leashes are totally up my “dog style alley”. But since they are a bit pricy for me, I’m loving Curby’s DIY Rope Dog Leash manual. I’m definitely going to give this a try, these just look fabulous!

Cute illustrations for Leisure Society-video

Besides that I really like this song, I’m really loving these illustrations in this Leisure Society Video. Persistent Peril, an animation studio, is also responsible for the cute story, where “a hand creates life on a little bluey-greeny planet and things don’t quite go as planned.”

Don’t sweat it

Basically, I’m tired of sweating. We don’t have a/c’s over here, since summer doesn’t usually get this hot in Switzerland. But I really wouldn’t mind having this VITEO shower plate on my balcony. Australian designer Danny Venlet and VITEO developed the shower spray, that is activated by your own body weight and rises in an arc up to 4 metres in the air and rains gently down above your head! Can we get this for the office, please!
