Les Roulottes
I keep returning to Eclectic gipsyland's photo set "Roulottes" on flickr, when I crave a bohemian dose of color and textile.

Imagine having one of these caravans in your garden...

Jeanne Bayol, pictured above has carved out her own unique niche in restoring old gypsy caravans and decorating them like no other. Her Caravans are for sale at les verdines. Be sure to check out her website and book: "Les Roulottes : Une invitation au voyage"

ISO50 Playlist No.2

I'm really loving all of the music that Jakub's posting over on the ISO50 blog. I've been in dire need of some new music to listen to at work (I guess I finally outplayed my Pandora stations), and was so pleased to find this gem of a playlist. I'll be listening to this on heavy rotation this week in the studio. It's Bliss.

April Give-a-way! Domino The Book Of Decorating

When Domino magazine first came out, I was instantly hit by the bug of obsession. It was like a designer's bible. The principle of it's magic was simple: here is a beautiful room, and here are all of the resources to make it happen. Simple. They broke a room down right down to the paint color. They were pioneers in their field, showing us all of the clever ways to design a unique space, to make you happy.

It was painful to hear of the end of my favorite publication. I'm still harboring a belief that when this economy turns around, it will come back! But for now , I can at least attest to their beautiful legacy with Domino's book, "Domino The Book Of Decorating, a room-by-room guide to creating a home that makes you happy", I have two copies to share with readers of this blog courtesy of it's wonderful publisher Simon & Schuster.

To enter: just leave a comment. No need to ever even have cracked open the magazine... this is the best of all of it's pages, and I'm so excited to share this with 2 lucky readers!

"Domino: The Book of Decorating cracks the code to creating a beautiful home, bringing together inspiring rooms, how-to advice and insider's secrets from today's premier tastemakers in an indispensable style manual. The editors take readers room by room, tapping the best ideas from domino magazine and culling insights from their own experiences. With an eye to making design accessible and exciting, this book demystifies the decorating process and provides the tools for making spaces that are personal, functional and fabulous."

Contest Ends Wednesday, April 8. Two random winners will be picked to receive a free copy of this wonderful book... good luck!!!

A river of images

I recently discovered a site called flickr river, that catalogs everyone's favorites, and most viewed photos from the online photo community flickr.

I was a bit awestruck when I realized that I had collected over 1,000 images in my favorites folder over the past few years.

At the same time I also couldn't help being hit by a sudden feeling of nostalgia, when I viewed 648 photos from my own flickr stream there, in the order of what's been viewed as most interesting. So many pieces of my life and what's inspired me over the past few years are flowing out there in the river for all to see.

It's all pretty great somehow, if you're a member of flickr be sure to check it out.
