If you’re still looking for a New Year’s Resolution, check out this poster that I couldn’t help re-blogging from schiaparelli pink!
I’m currently working on a little project (exciting!) to show you all soon! For now, though, I’ll leave you with this photo I took on a recent trip to Paris – it’s the mural from the common room at the Pavillon Suisse, Cité Universitaire, Paris. I love the graphic design of the mural (it’s massive, this is only a small part!) at the bright, mid-century Modern colours:
How lovely are these fabric swatches from one of the new Spring Summer 2011 ranges from Liberty! I know I should probably have waited until Tuesday to share, but I just couldn’t wait! I love the Nordic feel of these tree designs, and also the colour pops that make these designs anything but drab. I’d love love love to make curtains from one of these – it’s just deciding which one I like best! Find them, clockwise, 1, 2, 3, 4.
I need this in my life. Right now.
So, a little while back, Creative Review previewed the Royal Wedding Commemorative Plates which will launch January 15th at KK Outlet. I probably don’t have to tell you that they’re totally unofficial, or that they’re totally awesome. I want this top one the most, but I’d be happy with any! (or the full set…?)
How much fun was that! I’m thinking I might actually set about designing some Royal Wedding Memorabilia of my own!
I went here last year as part of my Le Corbusier-in-Paris Marathon. It was designed as (and still functions as) a dormitory for Brazilian students at the Cité Universitaire in Paris. Built in 1959, the interiors and design features of this brightly-coloured little gem (one side is a lot like the Unité d’Habitation at Marseilles) are some of my favourite around, combining interesting and exciting textures and lighting with Modernist, 1950s features.
