LOVE at first panel--Modular Arts

I cannot resist a textured wall installation. I'm bidding on an office lobby, and these were the first inspirations that came to mind. Modular Arts  makes these exquisite rock tiles--and sent me 4 16 square samples which are really divine--they can be painted, uplit, or left sleek and bare. Look at all the amazing applications!


Here's another paneled wall style...they all are fab! Iconic Panels Collection:

Gorgeous--most "hospitable" lighting

Hospitality Design Magazine featured some lighting that has me really wanting to design a hotel or restaurant purely around simply one of these pieces. Actually I love these fixtures so much I'd attempt to put them in a residential setting as well; hmmmm.
These first few are from Yellow Goat Design:

John Legend "All of Me"

Did you happen to see the AD with celebrities at home? My favorite home was John Legend's.
Such an earthy, zen space. And okay, lets face it, I had a great opportunity to meet him at a Capitol File event a few years ago, and he is such a super nice guy. His then fiancee (now wife) Christine Teigen also was there, and she could not have been lovlier.
Anway, I was thinking about this today because John Legend performed his new single All of Me today on Sirus XM. And the video is so beautiful and appears to be shot in his home. Enjoy!
 John Legend,

Another hotel design I'm loving

All photos courtesy of Interior Design Magazine....the title of their segment is "Five hotels designed to soothe...isn't that what we all want when we travel? I was especially struck by the Sense of Place: Grand Hyatt Shenyang in China--enjoy!
