Stools made from used truck springs


Sometimes salvaged objects look a little visually forced after they end up in our homes but the truck springs from the below project that were transformed in stools look like a standalone design from the beginning.  I like them with their raw look without any treatment but if you want another color don’t hesitate to use some powder coating.

Department of missing socks


I am convinced that there is a ghost somewhere that eats the socks from my home and I end up with a bunch of unmatched socks.

I have at least 10-15 unmatched socks that are just lying soemwhere in my wardrobe. Occasionally, I find one in very strange places…

Tired of the  basket with unmatched socks that they use, Brian & Tami came up with a solution. They created a way for the socks to remain in the light of the day and have a reminder about the poor socks that are missing their mates.

It’s kind of like a “missing persons” wall. “No socks left behind”.

That’s what I call a real family tree!


Pictures with our loved family  shouldn’t stay closed in a photo album! Find a tree branch that is somehow flat and can be put on a wall and hang your familiy pictures there. For a better effect the pictures should be black and white or with sepia filter.

Looks great, isnt’ it?

Best time in your life


While surfing on the net I encountered today an interesting project: pictures and clocks, stopped on childrens’ times of birth.

Blissimagesandbeyond did a good job implementing the idea. 3 kids with 8×10 photos, matted to 11×14 frames and three cheap and good looking clocks.  The clocks were bought from Amazon, are from plastic and don’t weigh much.

“The Best of Times” phrase was printed and added above.  Simple and to the point.  I want to add that is perfect.

When I will have children I will definetely try it. But I need not to forget to note their birth hour and minutes ;) .

Mr. Wong restaurant in Sydney,Australia


Mr. Wong, a Chinese restaurant full of elegance and authenticity, brings the glamour of 1930s Shanghai to Sydney’s business district.

The building in which is situated is a former australian nightclub and retains some of the fabric of the earlier usage.Bamboo chairs,battered brickwork,ceiling fans and an Oriental female portrait which dominates one wall create a nice decor.

It offers a 60 item menu of traditional Cantonese food and all the classic dishes are there , from roast duck to shark-fin soup.

People and designers involved in the project: Sibella Court, Bettina Hemmes, Dreamtime Australia and Merrivale CEO Justin Hemmes.

When I will visit Australia for sure I will book a dinner here.
