Now that I’m finally addicted to Twitter, I found this great link over at dezeen via Paul Pincus. Be sure to check out the entire post for a ton of great exterior and interior photographs:


Long Tall House is a residential project in Tokyo, Japan, by Kagawa Takanori and Tappei Ito of Spacespace.


This is cool! Wallpaper* magazine has a interactive floor plans on the site. Check it out here.


Scrumptious journals by Patty Van Dorin that I will never be able to begin to rival over at decor8, as well as the South of France book:

Still laughing at the moggitgirls snark. Here’s a favorite from this week.

Got a “sneak peak” at the home of Meg Crossley, editor of Canadian House and Home magazine (a great glossy to pick up in these dark days of magazines folding) via Poppytalk:

I fear Twitter is feeding my increasing A.D.D. problem. I want all the information right now in 140 character words or less. With links. Feed me, feed me, feed me! I haven’t really read any blogs the old fashioned way since I joined, I just wind up following the ones I like and using their Twitter links. Hopefully the novelty will wear off soon, as I am late to the Twitter party anyway. I tried to figure it out back when Design Public joined and I had no idea what it was. Now I just want to do my Hatch blog posts in 140 characters or less. Is all this typing and photo insertion really necessary, or should I just “RT” all day long? I don’t know! Should I even bother to have real conversations with my friends, or just “@” them back on Twitter? Just how much more will my grammar deteriorate as I struggle to keep everything as brief as possible?
