on a hunt.

just love this octogonal planter (?) from Mohawk General Store in LA. Anyone know where to find one?

oscar night

just a couple things:

1. gwyneth's performance. less than engaging.
2. normally love James Franco, but kiiinda annoyed by him hosting, he played up the stoner bit too much, no? and Anne, although a knockout, was a little giddy/crazy for my taste.
3. Natalie Portman is still my girl crush, times a million, even with a bunny in the oven. so gracious!
4. killer dresses: Michelle Williams, Mila Kunis, Kate Blanchett
5. Trent Reznor, best soundtrack = pretty awesome.

...I think I'm liking skinny frames. I like this color scheme too and I'm usually not a big black/white fan.

the color of this couch is so luxe I can barely stand it. 
hi, velvet. I've missed you.

all tiled up

and of course the age-old favorite from Domino...

happy kitchens.

It would make it more fun to cook, no? 

I heart art: John Stezaker

British artist John Stezaker creates images from old movie stills, vintage postcards, and books. I love the idea of taking old images (from books, magazines etc), intended to convey something very specific, and creating new scenarios by cutting and pasting. A curation of sorts, picking what should go where. 
I'm into that.

sorry, but all I can think about here is...runny. nose.

room equation

artwall. duh.
indoor plants and light up globes
big, textury baskets
lights with double the personality
cushiony, navy chairs
marbled floor
a room where traditional, but very hip granddad shows his grandson all the places he's traveled around the globe. grandson's favorite hiding spot is in the baskets. granddad always pretends he doesn't know where, oh where, he is...grandson wins again!

where my head's at

pretty rug! and bench. fun art in skinny frames

ignore the bird motif, pls


I keep holding myself back because I think I have the exact right art or the right frames, but I think it will be an ever evolving process. I just need to pull the trigger, right?

icing for your Monday cake

snapshot found on artist Louis Zoeller Bickett II's facebook page.

kitchen canisters

In an ideal world my pantries would be mostly package free and organized like this.
but alas, they aren't. 
One day.

tiny dancer.

...I never thought Thom was cute until this video. note to self: must be into weird, convulsive dancing.

I just downloaded Radiohead's new album. Anyone else get it? like it? not like it?
I'm still in the marination phase.

the weekend!

(source unknown)

If I had taken this photograph, I would have already eaten it like candy. 

is eye candy edible? discuss.

It's a rainy day in Socal, so I can't think much past my ride home on the freeway. (wish me luck)

I hope you eat something really yummy and do something really fun this weekend! those are my loose goals. any fun plans?

wall 2 wall

fun wallpaper campaign.

chair fam

these chairs look like the moms of these cuties I posted about last year...

anyone know the name of them?

I heart art: Malene Landgreen

Malene Landgreen is from Copenhagen. She does lots of whole room installations too. I like her studies on color and shape, mostly geometric. It's fun that she also plays with really strict and straight lines along with the painterly, brushy effect in some of her pieces.

dot maze

pretty new print from Mociun Fall 11.


It's rainy today in southern California and I am wanting to spend the day wrapped up in 1 of the 3 options above. what is it about rainy days?

the weekend!

currently liking this idea. I can't tell if I'm just plain intrigued or really like the way it looks. what do you think of it? maybe a mudroom sink and not the main kitchen sink? It's a funky idea.

I'm dogsitting so I get lots of much needed puppy time 
and I may go to the Rose Bowl flea to find treasures if I'm feeling ambitious. 
Have a great weekend! 

Art From Found Materials, 1970s

I'll be honest. these were taken last year...secret's out!

hello new friends.

how do you do?

I noticed a teeny spike in visitors today. Welcome!


speaking of workspaces... yowza


I'm taking an unsolicited poll. 
some people think the name of this blog is just a random mashup of letters. they do have a meaning and I learned it in school. anyone want to take a guess? the winner will get a digitalized (and imaginary) double high five from, yes. me.

serious drawings by marc johns

room equation

angled roof attic space
white & wood color scheme
exposed beams
tons of art supplies

a room that you don't have to keep clean all the time and it still looks good. 
like the home of a fantastically messy artist.
