Judging a Book By It's Cover

It's true! I totally do--I am a sucker for anything that catches my eye and usually will even overlook the back just because I like the cover so...With that said I probably won't have really read a Virgina Wolf book before but now that she has these wow-factor covers, I may take a second glance :)

Via Destined to Design


If your like me and haven't started realllllllly shopping yet then these gifts would be the perfect ones for you to give this christmas season! Already foolproof packaged & sure to please its really just a matter of "clicking and buying".

The wanna-be graphic designer in me definitely just lost my cool when I stumbled this uber cool type templates on the September Industry. The designers at Hofstede Design actually use give these foolproof stencils out as gifts to potential clients. Now who would possibly say no to them after receiving these cool party favors? (Answer: no one).

Where I'll be This Weekend is Here...

staying here. I am so excited to go on a fun little Northwest roadtrip & get to see all the fabulous vendors Grace Bonney of Design*Sponge gathered to show their creations at Sandbox Studios. It shall be the quite the time! However, I'm already slightly stressing about what will be left of my bank account come Monday. I easily want one of every btwn water & wind's stunning leather goods

Are you any of you going to be going to this event as well? Happy (almost)weekend!


Different Perspective

I enjoy these poetic captures from Philaharmonik's photostream that take the everyday view into something phenomenal. I randomly stumbled across his flickrstream at work when I was searching for concrete and was delightfully surprised to find the rest of these along with what I was looking for.

A House of Books


Now it all makes sense. Why it makes sense I'm drawn to any book Taschen produces. It's because of this very fashionista who is behind all the beautiful images, breathtaking covers and pages and pages of beautiful photography in any subject you can imagine. Coffee table books are my downfall--and now Taschen does the same thing with her home that she does with her books--makes my knees weak!!  What a simply stunning space!
