Music Bouncing Off The Walls

Grab your hammers and  picture hooks, kids!  Give your walls a new twist in 2011 with these silkscreened posters featuring music lyrics & fab typography over at Music Philosophy

The talented creator of these marvy hits is based in the UK and introduces himself and his work thusly:

“Hi. My name is Mico. I am a designer. I like music and typography. So I combined them on this Project because I had nothing better to do.”

How droll and delish!

In my next life, I fear my house will have no windows…only walls…so I can satisfy my passion for art, art and more art.   Or maybe i’ll fancy a double-sided framing system for displaying ON windows.  How about a huge picture window with a poster featuring Johnny Nash’s “I can see clearly now the rain has gone.”  facing in.  And this wonderful poster (thanks to The Mouldy Peaches) facing out for arriving guests to see:

Thank you, Mico.  Wonderful work.  Love, Love.  Me Do.

A Field Day…

A Field Day…

These gorgeous images show how two artists,  Friederike Hamann and Colin Sullivan-Stevens conjure magic in their gallery called Field in Portland, Maine. I spent the better part of an afternoon wandering through their gallery by way of their  beautiful month-by-month posts…dating back to July 2006. Each month a newly designed storefront window hinted at the [...]

Collections: Joyful Things and Joyful Folks

A little bit of this . . . and a generous dab of that . . . and maybe a smidge of those. I could be talking about mixing up a simmering soup or creating a painting or even decorating a living room (emphasis on living). The idea is that whatever comes together is a [...]

Are You Sitting Down?

Are You Sitting Down?

These chairs by Johan Lindstén make me go week at the knees. (Which is absolutely fine since they’re chairs, afterall.) Johan and his desgin firm, Lindstén Form are based in Stockholm.  Lucky Swedes. His chairs artfully combine the best of modern shape with vintage needlepoint: “This furniture’s destiny is to elevate and promote these neglected pieces [...]

A Ruffle Of Feathers By Your Chair.
