It’s totally inspiring room… the late night edition! Better late than never, I say, especially when the room is this cool. Ok, so technically it’s an entry and it’s also just a glimpse. Still, isn’t this glimpse tantalizing enough to draw you into the rest of the house? Check out the cool blog Rex Kelly Mid-Century to see more of the house which was done by Osborne Architects! Happy night owling, y’all!
Finally! The Instagram app is available for Android! After what seems like eons of waiting, while all my iPhone toting friends tweeted arty, perfectly altered photos of everything from their pets to what they ate for lunch last Saturday, I am able to join the fray. Yes, I have posted a picture of a pet. No, I haven’t posted pictures of food… but it’s early days yet for me in Instagram land.
Here is a sampling of what I’ve got up so far (minus my hideous early attempts) and in the spirit of full disclosure: a few of these photos were sent through Vignette (the full version) and Pixlr-O-Matic and then refiltered through Instagram, then I hitched them up together using Photoshake! Pro. I’ll let you decide which ones!
Clockwise from top left: boxes at my old job, my new thrift store camera, my niece and nephew, the view through the trees walking from IKEA Seattle.
Clockwise from top left: my nephew at the beach, historic building at the same beach, the Duwamish River through Fort Dent Park, my nephews throwing rocks at ducks!
Clockwise from top left: the Zoo Lights at Point Defiance Xmas 2010, Charlotte NC clouds, SW 43rd St passing under the train tracks, and my new stash of thrift store books… I got Murakami (x2) AND The Somnambulist for $2 each!
Are you on Instagram too? You can find me under the handle asishome (so original, I know!) trying sharpen my photo taking and editing skills. Follow me and I’ll follow you back. Happy picture taking!
Artist Tom French presents some of his new works in progress on his blog. They are beautiful black and whites with a kinetic sense of movement. I’m a huge fan… and hoping that at some point he offers prints for the budget conscious among us. In the meantime check out his post
Works in Progress…. You can also check out my previous ode to his work here.
We’re getting acres of snow here in Seattle. That’s definitely put a damper on my storage clean out activities!
I hope you all are having an amazing and snow free Monday! Until tomorrow!
I’m really loving black and white everything right now. I’d thought I’d share some of my camera photos which have been run through the Vignette Demo photo filtering app.
Do you take photos? I’d love to see what you’re doing with your camera! Have a wonderful, stress free Tuesday. 🙂
Eye candy for your lazy Sunday viewing enjoyment:
Bathrooms are private rooms used only by the owner’s of a given house. So how often do most people think about the decoration and ambience of these little private worlds?
I think about it frequently… I’m semi-obsessed with classic, clean looking bathrooms with elegant touches: simple gilt framed mirrors, a marble bust of a French aristocrat, or wallpaper reminiscent of a winter forest.
White in the bathroom, for me, is synonymous with cleanliness. I love a bath fitted out in classic white with touches of black, grey, and metal.
But black also has its appeal as well. With an all black ground, every other color, print, or pattern just pops! It seems a great way to make the function of the room recede and to bring the color and texture of your materials to the forefront.
Above are a few favorites that I’ve gathered recently. What are your favorite color schemes for a bath?
