Wooden Bed House

Totally enamored with this wooden house bed. This one is in kids size but I want one for my bedroom…

Questions for Leaders

Does what I do count?

Does what I do make a difference to anybody?

Why should I come here?

Can I be somebody here?

Is there for me any rhyme or reason here?

Can I “own” this place?

Do I have any rights?

Does coming here add any richness to my life?

IS this a place where I can learn something?

Would I show this place to my family – or am I embarrassed to show it to them – or does it just not matter?

Is there anybody here I can trust?

Is this place open to my influence?

The Bunt Machine

When you don’t micromanage a creative genius like Mac Premo and give the artist complete creative freedom to tell a short story about your service/product, this kind of beautiful result happens. Respect for the trust, WeTransfer. Hat tip, Mac Premo!

This Mug!

Last weekend when I visited some friends upstate I got to drink a coffee out of one of these mugs by WORKADAY. The imperfections are what make it so stunning! Also, the handle is GIANT! It made me laugh! WORKADAY makes all its pieces right here, in Brooklyn.

The Silence Breakers

Time Magazine, consider me impressed!

Patagonia!

Patagonia! I can’t think of another company that impresses me as much with their bold, courageous actions than Patagonia does. I feel inspired by this most recent move, yet still hesitant to be as bold myself with my companies…

Patagonia, take action!

The Tianjin Binhai Library

The Tianjin Binhai Library, a 33,700m2 cultural centre, features a luminous spherical auditorium around which floor-to-ceiling bookcases cascade. The undulating bookshelf is the building’s main spatial device and is used both to frame the space and to create stairs, seating, the layered ceiling and even louvres on the façade. A stunning project by MVRDV. Mind blown! I want to see this IRL! I love architecture!

I would love one of these colorful Tennis umpire chairs. Just because they are beautiful. I don’t have a tennis court.

Kickstarter launched a new service called drip that allows you to directly support a creator you like, similar to Patreon. My first drip support goes to Debbie Millman for her wonderful DesignMatters podcast. I love everything about this.

Fearless Girl by Skylar Yoo

I saw this shirt over on Skylar Yoo and couldn’t help but think this should have been part of my daily uniform for the past two years. I have tackled so many big things in my life headfirst that are absolutely terrifying but once pushed through will change everything. Also, does it come in kids sizes? I think my daughter could use it as well, given she is just about to head into her teen years.
