Out of the Landscape…

…rising from the terrain, we find Reykjavik House…minimalist, inviting, and toasty…yes, toasty…

…the light from Reykjavik House calls one inside…

simplicity, the indigo view, and warm wood tones makes one comfortable and toasty…yes, toasty…can you feel the warmth?…

…a beautifully designed and substantial home to shield one from the elements…the genius of Moomoo Architects.

Burnished Indigo…

indigo is my favorite color…when I was younger, I was a ‘blue jean baby’…but I have now become partial to wearing black.  Anyway…JamesPlumb has developed a dye process, producing an antique burnished indigo textile, which gives a stunning depth and dimension to indigo…

The project began when James Russell and Hannah Plumb of JamesPlumb found a 19th century leather sofa in a state of disrepair and wanted to find a suitable fabric to reupholster it.

brilliant…

Bathed in White Light…

…I wonder what artist Doug Wheeler’s lighting installation, titled D-N SF 12 PG VI, does to one’s senses…do your senses shut down…or go into full throttle? Stunning…

Doug Wheeler’s, D-N SF 12 PG VI, is installed for The Illusion of Light exhibition at Palazzo Grassi – an 18th century residence situated on Venice’s Grand Canal that now hosts contemporary art shows.
