marimekko spring 2007

: : last week was stockholm furniture fair .I've been updating myself through swedish blogs that have been covering the event. I was happy to read about marimekko's new spring collection . happy, bright and bold, as always...but with a fresh approach. I really like all the green!

: : love : :

although I'm not much for the valetine craze that's going on in the country right now, I couldn't help but feel drawn to this piece [found via .notcot.] I like .notcot's. description of the piece : "painfully sweet".

available at .rare device.

time to plant...

: : well, granted it has been a very mild has been very cold on my bike in the mornings these past couple of weeks. but this week it's been getting warmer and the ice on the charles melts a little bit more everyday. so, with spring around the corner...I started thinking about what to plant this year. I think it's going to be basil, oregano, cilantro and mint...and of course I'm hoping for green peppers on my plants that survived the winter.

crib candy have a couple of fun options for smart ways to organize and display planters. check them out right .here.

graphic content exhibit

: : I had the opportunity to visit the .contemporary art center in Cincinnati. while I was out there for a couple of days last week. their current graphic content exhibit is amazing!!! .charley harper., .malcolm grear. and .ryan mcGinness. all wonderful artist who's work i have encountered before but I wasn't familar with each individual artist. I especially fell for charley harper's work. so much humor, curiosity, playfulness and of course, attention to detail. above are some of my favorite pieces. it's really worth seeing these in person because you need to be up close and look at it for a while to notice all the details. notice the frog eating a smaller frog?

I also like the wonderful organic, flowing forms of .ryan mcGinness. you might already be familiar with his "icon language".

I'm off for this years only weekend of skiing! let's hope for some snow at least....
back next week! have a great weekend!
