Stuff We Love Online this Week

While twittering around this week, somehow a Poppytalk/Paris Hotel tweet exchange led me to Balustrade and Bitters magazine. Wowzah! How did I miss this one? Be sure to check out this month’s interview with Jack Deamer.

When I love a blog/online magazine a lot, I start clicking around on the ads just to help them out. However, the ad for Colleen & Company led me to all kinds of fantastic, glamorous things, my favorite being these scrumptiously dreamy watercolors by Victoria Molinelli. Everything about them reminds me of two of my favorite blogs, The Peak of Chic and Style Court.

Does anyone know who did these rooms? If I had to guess, I’d say Billy Baldwin or Albert Hadley. I’m sure that green sectional room is some iconic design and I should be embarrassed not to be able identify it. However, life’s too short. Anyone know?

I just found Coastal Living on Twitter today and have whiled away about an hour after being sucked into their website. Here are the original images that got me started on my intense browsing. They make me long for the ocean:

Love the Bertoias with the Saarinen tulip table, the blue, the wood, and most of all the view:

Love the way these Emeco chairs work in this shot:

I’m totally going to steal this color palette!:

The stainless steel countertops really work well here. Even though this kitchen is sleek, it’s still warm somehow:

Who do you follow on Twitter for design? Here are a few inspiring design move tweets some of my favorite tweeps posted over the weekend:

from PaulPincus:  “Paula Scher & Lenny Naar’s Band-Aid silkscreen poster for Pentagram. It’s framed in a lucite box and was installed in my office this morning. It’s great-looking!”:

From Freshome: A beautiful apartment full of bold color and gorgeous details in Hampstead London:

Vertigodesign (i.e. Design Evolution) let us know about this great view of The Parthenon at The Athens Gate Hotel:

An inspiring article via Land8.

SallyTV lets us see some bridge construction:

I’m not sure how I’m ever going to get any work done with so many great people to follow on twitter, but it sure is fun and inspiring. Again, let us know who you enjoy following for design inpsiration!

Architecture on Twitter

I admit it, I am a relative newbie to Twitter, even though Design Public has been tweeting for quite some time. Who are your favorite design tweeps that I might like to follow? Today I found this cool Mexican house, via styleture via freshome, designed by 7X Taller de Arquitectura.

At first glance, I thought this might be cargotecture, i.e. a house made of shipping containers, because of the shape of the second floor on the right side. I wonder if the forms created by making buildings out of shipping containers is starting to influence the style and form of buildings that contain no containers? Or is it a coincidence? Do you think the style gleaned more inspiration from international style and designers like Rem Koolhaas (I’m thinking Villa Dall’ava) or Corbu (I’m thinking a little Villa Savoye)?  Is it a combo? Am I the world’s worst architecture analyst? In any case, I’d love to see an inspiration board for this very interesting modern house. What do you think?

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?
