for the gentlemen.

we’re going the other direction this time.

while i’ve got an obvious penchant for menswear-inspired womenswear, the fact that father’s day is coming  up just gives me an excuse to look at gentlemanly things for, well, gentlemen.

gorgeous + clever.

came across this while “researching”… love everything – floorplan, decor, deisgn and the smartly executed video. too bad it’s far far away in canada.

meet Whatshisname, a UK artist/designer. his subversive canine lamps were designed for London’s Art Below exhibition, but were dubbed too offensive to be shown. (i think they’re quite clever.)

there’s only so much space…

now that i’ve successfully passed my Texas Real Estate Salesperson License exams (woot!), i can refocus on some belated home tasks – i’m supposed to be looking for some solid wood bar/counter stools for my kitchen, but i keep getting distracted…
