bring it, monday...via ffffound.

your typical boring filing drawer - blah.

clean out those files, kids!

ta-da!

before + after from design*sponge. a really great summer project idea. it would look great with some decorative stencil pattern on the front or a cute painted border. { i think it may need bigger plants + bright colorful flowers to balance out the intensity of all that painted metal. }

next project…

cute fabric!love the colorsan upstairs office. i started gathering ideas this weekend for how to approach crafting my tiny office space. will upload a picture of what space {or lack thereof } i’m going to be working with. ideas + suggestions welcome! i have a lot of high wall space, so i’m thinking something that elongates the eye similar to photo posted {from design*sponge} + a cute diy chair would be perfect.

*happy weekend*

so cute!how great is this idea? a dreary wood pallet has been turned into a lovely daybed! and yes. that is a door as the headboard. note the surrounding decor. love love love! read more about this project and it’s creator here, from design*sponge.

oooh aaaahfrom anthropologie. be sure to check out the video case study to hear from anthropologie creative director, trevor lunn. talk about a dream job. their corporate offices look amaaaazing. and i love how they mix textures – clothes + collateral designs. i’m especially into the uses of paper in their online work, like showcased in this website. { just click on the anthropologie tab, bottom right corner }  love it. love it. love it!!!

om nom nomyes. it’s in swedish. no it isn’t helpful to “us”… but it is very calming, simple, clean and pretty. i like the specific target of a healthy breakfast only. there are tons of sites trying to help us count calories at every meal. they’re usually list based or fill-in-the-box kind of forms – they work well, but are slightly boring. especially if you’re returning day after day to input your data. this brings a fun new visual technique that just may keep users coming back. and it’s still quick and easy. if it had an actual, ‘login/track your breakfast habits’ option { hey maybe it does… i can’t read it }  and if it was in english, i’d use it. kudos to the wasa and forsman + bodenfors.

{ but i would have the logo link to the wasa homepage. just one of my nav pet peeves }
