Everyone know that I love design with a sense of humor. These two pieces by Peter Bristol are just great...

After a discussion with a client today, I fell down the internet rabbit hole looking at cool benches online. Benches (and tables) are such an interesting form, as there is nothing so simple, yet done well they can be absolutely gorgeous.
My personal favorite is the individu bench (third from the top), which can be modified per your individual needs.

After my first bike ride of the spring, I was thinking about how beautiful bikes have become. Apparently, I'm not the only one who thinks so!
Designed by architect Joan Sandoval, this Barcelona bike shops has a minimal design (with enough room to test drive the bikes), letting the bikes themselves be the decoration.

Anyone who follows this blog (is there anyone still out there?!?!) has probably noticed that it has been a while since I last posted...
Since my last post, I've merged practices with Henry Walters of Drome Design Studio to form atelier drome, llp. We're pretty excited about our merger and feel blessed to be busy! But, it has been too long since this blog has been active, so we're going to try and make an effort to reactivate the blog. This blog has meant a lot to me, a source of inspiration when I was working in jobs feeling less than inspired... a means of connecting to friends and new acquaintances across the globe... and now I hope to take this blog with me on a new journey with my new company.
Even though this post doesn't have any architectural photos... I can't think of a better product to summarize my aesthetic. When I first saw this bench (is that what you'd call it?) on shoebox dwelling, I actually gasped. I absolutely love the minimal design with the surprise inside.

This paint could be ridiculous and cheesy if implemented poorly, but could be a lot of fun if done right! I love the idea of an entire conference wall (or coffee shop) painted with whiteboard. Instead of having a cheesy office depot plastic whiteboard, the whole room is your canvas. And when someone inevitably uses the wrong type of marker, you can just repaint instead of chucking the board.

I have only started wearing a watch in the last year or so, but I am dying to replace it with this watch. Designed by Swedish firm Mutewatch, this thing is just gorgeous. I may actually get on the waiting list for when it comes out in July!

A few years ago C and I went to Italy and timed the trip so that we could attend the biennale. It was really a fantastic, inspirational experience, and I think I'm ready for it again. It is too late for me to make it to London for the design festival, but maybe I'll make it next year!
