Quick blue cheese & olive martini on the back patio then back to work! instagram.com/p/ZoXT8kDTUv/
A bit of a long musical intro to this one but quite charming.
The perfect task light! Thin walled cast concrete desk light with walnut/oak arm and aluminium details.
Mouth blown glass floor lamps with portugese cork stopper. Would look amazing as floor lamps.
Resin cast polystyrene beads floor lamp. We want them all!
We picked up Tiny Houses a few weeks ago from a local book store while looking for inspiration for decorating a small space. Although we have a house we want to keep things very minimal with good space optimization.
Tiny Houses was written by Mimi Zeiger who is the founder and editor of Loud Paper Magazine, an architectural digest geared toward young architects. She is more well known for writing for Dwell and Metropolis and also teaches urban branding and architectural journalism at The Southern California Institute of Architecture.
Tiny Houses is great coffee table book that features over thirty international homes under 1000 square feet. Homes range from practical to conceptional, tree houses and pre-fab to floating homes and everything in between aimed to be more sustainable, and less expensive living.
This smaller 7 X 7 inch book gave us a lot of storage and layout ideas. All of the homes in the book were actualized, not just a computer diagram and some are moved from place to place.
One thing that we didn’t like about the book is that it features some homes which are not yet lived in, but overall, well worth the 29 USD and definitely a keeper! You can find this book online, your local book store or even library!

What a romatic place for a dinner! Walden by Nils Holger Moormann 2006
This one is our favorite! An existing pig stable converted into a showroom. The original building was damaged in World War 2 and patched over the years. The architects left the eighteenth-century German stone stable untouched, inserting a timber frame structure inside a crumbline shell. A house within a house. Some of the walls inside open to glass to reveal the ruins eccentric details.
