etched wood rings

I know this pendant is made of wood, but promise I am not breaking the ikw rules because our focus is on the wood rings that have been etched into it (phew!). You can also find matching earings all at Early Jewelry.

those woodgrain sheets and a bunny!!!

OMG. Too much cuteness in one photo. Love Forever posted this adorable shot of her pet bunny, Potato, hanging out on those infamous woodgrain sheets from Urban. (wow, that was one of the very first things we ever posted about!) The cuteness is killing me.


Isolee is what Wallpaper magazine would be if it were a lifestyle shop, according to its travel guide for Madrid. It's a cafe, market, lounge, and mini Barney's all in one. I loved the super graphics they did in greys. The outside graphic was posted a few weeks back.

steel tree

We saw this after our visit to the Mies Van der Rohe Barcelona Pavilion in Spain. It's all steel and gianormous. We think it is a subway stop.

spain icons

The first tree was a tile on a building in Madrid. The second, was an impression on the floor of the Barcelona Cathedral. Great interpretations.

custom birch mugs

Just got the Rare Device newsletter and found these customized mugs by Rust Designs. Look closely. Each can be customized to have you and your partner's initials "carved" into the birch tree's heart.

faux bois mirror

Oy, we've been so behind in our faux bois sightings- There have been so many out there too! This one has been around for a bit, but we haven't documented it here yet- the Faux bois mirror at West Elm. Very Oly Studio-esque, but lovely all the same.
