Check out the article here! :D
My very good friend Jared’s Brooklyn apartment. It’s a beautiful space filled with meaning-full objects. And as I looked through these great photos, I realized in nearly every one you can find at least one object, book, or handmade item I’ve given to him over the years. Like the Mondrian-esque pillows that I designed and Kim made, or that Eames book, or the little Schoolhouse Electric Company light fixture in the last photo.
And I feel certain that many of his other close friends looking through these same photos will notice the exact same thing. Jared has built a home out of the art of memories and gifts and the artifacts of old friends. It’s a wonderful thing.
The Mai Mai House by Pattersons Architects.
“This is a private house. It seeks to create a union which reconciles seemingly contrary identities, personalities and problems. In this house these two lovers – the hunter and the bird, as we have grown to call them – make sense of the elements that define them as individuals, and the chemistry that draws them together as a couple. A key to unlocking the Mai Mai is in the word ‘duality’. The house uses a duality of function and a duality of meaning to reconcile paradoxical ideas of concealment and display, ambush and retreat, challenge and reconciliation.”
Now, this is a dream house (complete with boat!) Vintage 1970s A-Frame Mountain House Playset from PorticoShop.
Five Things to Love @ Uncommon Goods
Uncommon Goods is the place to go for everything you could possibly want for your home. I browsed the website yesterday looking for items to update the look of my home for Summer. I’m going for an eclectic vibe and Uncommon Goods had more than what I was looking for! Here are a few of my favorites.
The handmade Kantha blanket here immediately caught my eye. It would be perfect across the back of a couch, tossed on a bed or as a picnic blanket on a warm sunny day.
The Sweet Dreams pillowcase set would make a great update to any bedroom…or pillow fort.
So maybe your neighbors don’t have better stuff but your guests don’t have to know that. Plop this cheeky mat outside your front door and let the neighbors wonder who really has the best style.
Uncommon Goods has a wide range of fun animal heads but this Unicorn Head is probably the most uncommon and the most likely to gain you style points.
