My 1st B&B stay

Just back from the US.

Santa Monica Channel Road Inn is the first B&B i stayed. I love the house and room, small but cozy and relaxing. I love the home decor, detailed wood work and vintage accessories, I love the people there cos they are wonderful and helpful. I love the afternoon tea and wine, welcome cookies, and breakfast. I love the rose garden…

It’s so COOL…not only because of its stylish look, but also the idea behind. Designed by young Korean designer won-suk Cho

“…Cho wanted to create a light which instead of letting people see other things could be seen itself.”

At Your Command Lamp

I found this really great product design in Coroflot from a Singapore designer danielove

at-your-command-1

Description

*Electrical wires removed for visualization sake* Imagine the classical movable mannequin takes on a whole new form and style. The classical lamp has evolved much over the years but what if this lamp allows your imagination to run wild? And every movement of joint is at your control? What will the evolution be? The results may be controversial, provoking or elegant. Finished in gold plating for a touch of exquisiteness.

I’m thinking my command now, what about you?

Parrot Zikmu by Philippe Starck

Yesterday, I saw an elegant wireless ipod speaker at Lane Crawford’s Pacific Place home store for HK$13,000. And today, I google and find more information about the speaker.

function

  • tall, svelte speakers are designed to work in pairs over WiFi or bluetooth
  • 360° NXT surround sound
  • can play from music from a computer, or from iPods and iPhones by way of the dock up top

philosophy

  • “We were not aiming to create just another speaker. Our design focused more on making the air vibrate. There is actually a three-dimensional feel to this vibration, meaning that the air is palpable, almost humanlike in presence, like a fragrance”
  • “…as the look will go out of date as fast as the parts. The important thing is to give people something they can use, and continue to use.”
  • “…including a heavy duty carrying case that, as Starck joked, took more time to design than the speakers, and will make you look like a mafioso hitman.”

appearance

Zikmu is in my wishlist now! Money will out from my pocket!

Ants on tableware. Awesome!

I love dirty…what? yes, dirty tableware. Why?

I’m thinking to put an empty sugar packet on the saucer and cup of coffee / tea. Look so REAL!!! 😀

I bet you love them too, such a beautiful minimal design but wonderful illustration.  They are designed and created by Re Jin Lee @ Bailey Doesn’t Bark.

The ants were individually hand painted, then transferred onto ceramic decal paper.

Her products are available for purchase through Etsy or you can visit www.baileydoesntbark.com for complete collections.
