Enjoy these lovely photos of Casa Cuadrada – the L.A. home of architect/author Tom Marble and his artist/wife, Pae White.  I think they’ve really struck a nice balance here – it’s contemporary, yet liveable.

I’m also seriously jealous of that cartoon bathmat.  I’ll be trolling ebay for my own humourous bathmat all weekend now.

On that note – hope you all have a great weekend!

Caitlin Hinshelwood and Rose de Borman (two creative types who are both illustrators and textile designers) are opening up a pop up shop and gallery in an unused shop at 65 Hanbury Street tomorrow night. They’ll be featuring works by Neal Jones, Luke Best, Huw Griffiths, and many many others.

The shop upstairs will be offering textiles, homewares, taxidermy, antiques and artists books.  The gallery downstairs will feature prints and works on paper for sale.

How very exciting, no?!

Enjoy these truly lovely interiors from photographer Roland Bello.

There are some really inspirational pieces in here – that pie piece table? The coatstand crawling with animals??  The printed sofas?!  The silhouettes?!?

Ralston & Bau

Check out this brillaint ‘Redesign’ line of products from Norway’s Ralston & Bau.

In an effort to be environmentally friendly they’ve designed products (lamps, cake stands and candle holders) that are formed from old plant pots, teacups, lampshades, and teapots.

All the original objects were sourced from Fretex (a division of Norway’s Salvation Army.)

On this cold, October Friday enjoy some sunny, mid-century L.A. eye-candy.  (I swore I’d never use a word like ‘eye-candy’ but oh well.)  This home (right on Mulholland Drive no less) is the Singleton House, designed by the legendary architect Richard Neutra.

Lucky for you, it’s on the market (a cool $15 million – excellent!)

I’m loving all those big boulders.

Dentist Office

I had to have a filling today – which is sad because I thought the days of cavities were behind me.  All that drilling… ugh.  In honour of my numb mouth please enjoy this ridiculously cool dentist office is Japan, designed by Keisuke Maeda of UID Architects.

Check out this fantastic book created as a give-away to celebrate the launch of a new Cass Art shop in Islington.  The workbook, designed by Pentagram‘s Angus Hyland with typography by the great Marion Deuchars, features fun activities for kids like ‘making your own comic strip’ and ‘draw a shark in the tank’.

I would have loved this as a kid – it reminds me of Dr. Seuss’ My Book About Me (which I treasured).

Great excuse to get down to Cass Art and buy yourself some art supplies!

Pizza East (from the Soho House Group) has officially opened its doors.  The new venture is set in a warehouse space in the old Tea Building, right on Shoreditch High Street and Bethnal Green Road.

By all accounts the thin crust pizza is damn good… and the interior is clearly Shoreditch chic.   Oh – and they do takeaway.
