I recently discovered Lucy and Bart. Their work really pushes the boundaries of art/fashion/performance; I think it's fantastic.

The London apartment of Harriet Maxwell MacDonald (featured on dominomag.com) is such an inspiration. It's the perfect mix of modern and classic and the colors are beautiful.

I recently discovered sweet paul, by a Norwegian in NY about design, craft and food. I thought today would be a good day to post this lovely blog and also say Happy Birthday to Norway (it's Norway's Constitution Day)!

I'm still really impressed by each week's selections and all the different vendors at the Brooklyn "not a bunch of shitty crafts" Flea on Sundays. I found this neat book on amazon that has similarly cool flea finds.
