Objects and textures and palettes - oh my. Loads of inspiration from a top materials and finishes colleague. Thanks for sharing, J!

Holding Pattern

On her blog Holding Pattern, designer Lauren O’Neill collects beautiful satellite images of airport tarmacs from above, where the baggage fees and long lines and flight delays melt away into a neat, orderly vision of grass, concrete and tiny, toy-like planes. (via Fast Company)

Raw Color

Dutch design studio, Raw Color, reflects a sophisticated treatment of material and colour by mixing the fields of graphic design and photography. Big love for their kooky food still creations. Found on gorgeous Russian design blog, Omami.

A Merry Mishap

My home fantasyland.  Check out A Merry Mishap for DIY and interior design deliciousness. Another great discovery via Instagram.

V is for Val

A cheese-eating, bike-riding Canadian, now living in Amsterdam. Loves great design but creeped out by ballpoint pens. Alternate dream jobs include animals and cooking, but not cooking animals. Personal mantra gifted from an expert on the subject: Fortune favours the brave.

A is for Ali

Design hybrid by day. After hours she shoots film with toy cameras, sew clothes from books with Japanese instructions that she barely understands and hangs out with her husband, two beautiful girls and three crazy dogs. Personal mantra is "Don't worry, everything is going to be amazing". And for the most, it is.
