Here's a collection of some of my favorite vintage modern design ideas I absolutely love. Some day when I get the time and energy to decorate my house, I'd love to refer back to this post and design away...
I've always felt that the best kind of friends are the ones who give it to you straight. Don't sugar coat it for me, girl! If we get into a fight, sometimes it's your fault! These free e-cards from Knock Knock are a fun, easy way to send a little something to your bff - they're checkbox-friendly, true-to-life sentiments that she'll appreciate.… Continue
This fun building designed by Polish architects Wojciech Kakowski, Natalia Paszkowska and Marcin Mostafa was recently selected to become the Polish Pavilion at the 2010 Expo in Shanghai.

Let's say you're on a multihour layover in Los Angeles, at LAX. You don't belong to a special "members" only group that will get you into a swanky lounge where the peanuts are plenty and the Coke's are flowin'. So what do you do? You wait around, like thousands of others, contorting your body in an airport chair or trying to not look as silly as Joe Blow camping out… Continue

Although it didn't win the international competition to design Lebanon’s new "House Of Arts And Culture" in Beirut, this structure by Copenhagen-based JAJA Architects is quite stunning. The "Culture Bazaar" is a project that aims to dissolve the boundaries between interior and exterior, thus creating a space for open exchange of art, culture and ideas.
There's a few reasons why I like this new commercial by Gatorade titled "Tiger's Woods of Wisdom." First, it's the Disney/Jungle Book old school cartoon feel that take me back to a simpler time. Love how the bear is suppose to be like Tiger Wood's dad but is it me or does he (voiced by Samuel L. Jackson) sound slightly pimpish with that 70's style music playing in the background? Finally, love how Tiger balances the golf ball on his club (like… Continue

Photographer Jean-Francois Campos rides the fine line between illustration and photography in this set he's created for Dior. What I like best is that you can barely make out that this is a cosmetic's campaign. The glamorous silhouettes and the beautiful poses make this a classy and elegant set. It's vintage modern at its best.…
You know I'm a huge fan of wall art and when you combine it with monsters it can only be described as magic! Artist Jan Willem Wennekes has put up some amazing work on his Behance page. These look more like painted pieces than vinyl stickers but we're crossing our fingers that these become vinyl stickers real soon!…
Today I thought I'd put together a nice compilation of my favorite Alice in Wonderland inspired items. From furniture and lamps to jewelry and cakes, one look at this set and you'll agree that this 1865 story still lives on in modern times.

Three Angels Trying to Escape Their Drawing (Detail)
Eugene first introduced me to Peter Callesen's work back in November of last year. Callesen's ability to create a story with simple sheets of paper inspires me to find art in everyday things. These large cut papercut installations are particularly amazing because they explore… Continue

These photos read like tragic love stories. Created by Shaun, an interactive designer from Portland, they remind us of experiences we cannot forget. They conjure up bittersweet memories of love and regret, of a lingering pain that never goes away.…
