Cute washis.

A few days ago I received my order of washi tapes. They are soooo cute! They're like tiny pieces of art :)

I really like how they match together; specially the grey and black ones, I think they make a fantastic base for the solid bright colors.
You can find Office Depot duck tape coupons and save on decorative tape.

Beech leaves.

We went to a beech forest last weekend.
Near where we live there is a volcanic area and a big beech forest covering lava flows from the nearest volcanoes. They say the best season is fall, so we took advantage of it and went for a walk on the afternoon.

Is was so beautiful to see all this vast area covered in red coloured leaves and listen to the sound of the leaves cracking as we walked by.

The library. (I)

I am currently doing my final university project (in Architecture), I started in September and hope to finish in October 2012. I chose to do a new library in the city centre of Figueres.
As I'm in the beginnings of all this, I'm starting to make sketches and first models, so I'm looking for exisiting examples. That's the reason of this post, every now and then I'll be posting libraries I really like, and hope they start bringing me the inspiration I need :)


This is a Culture House and Library in Copenhagen (Denmark) by COBE. They made an extension to the existing culture house (of 1150 m2) and completed it with a new building of 2000 m2. 

 
 
As they say: "The new culture house consists of four clearly defined programs: a children’s library, a youth library, a library for adults and a concert hall. These four functions are stacked on top of each other like a series of golden “books”. Each "book" is a world of its own with individual interiors and furnishment. The spaces between the books are open zones for flexible use."
 

"As a main gesture, the concert hall is placed at the top of the building. A powerful object that seems to defy the laws of gravity, the position of the hall encourage people to move across the building towards the magnificent view over Copenhagen."

Dear Ingo.


The Dear Ingo lamp was designed by Ron Gilad in 2003 and is produced by Moooi. It's made up of 16 reading lamps (in black or white) and it has unlimited ways to be shown. It combines design and funcionality and it adds character to the space. 


Perfect for a dining room, a kitchen, an office... you can place it wherever you want, and it will add a modern, industrial (and pretty at the same time) look. Just love it!

Inspiring song for a lovely Monday.

Brilliant cover from the song "Everytime we touch" by Cascada.
This guy, Alex Goot, really knows how to cover songs!!! You can check it out on his youtube page here.

Glasses inspiration.




I'm loving these glasses prints and illustrations; it's a perfect way to decorate a wall with a pop-nerdy look.
