Blixen Rooms

Karen Blixen, author of Out of Africa, had some pretty interesting rooms in her residences in Copenhagen & Nairobi. Both locations still maintain her former homes, and have opened them up as museums.

Seed Cathedral

This UK pavilion designed by Thomas Heatherwick for the Shanghai Expo which started over the weekend, has blown me away. It's made of acrylic rods, which EACH have at their tip, various types of seeds. Check out a video of it in movement below.

grossomodo dress

Spanish group grossomodo (using a suturno fabric) have posted some amazing work in progress for some simple summer dresses coming up. I cannot wait to see the full product, and would love that second dress, the print is amazing.

Lizzy Stewart

I am so so fond of this series of illustrations from Stewart. I wish she had these prints for sale, but you can still find some amazing prints at her store.

Monday miscellany

This weekend has had some pretty amazing weather, after enjoying it, today I am splitting my time between several pending things such as moving (again) and writing a paper (obvs. not doing so well at the moment). Here are some random likes from my week so far:

The great photos from the Kling campaigns, some of which feature the amazing Russian Red.

A Woolly Pocket, which I've been lusting after to hang on my wall.

The new Caribou and the lead off single, "Odessa."
