I found this post at The Veda House and I oh-so-wished I lived there! Elisabeth Heier‘s home might actually be one of my favourite houses yet! It’s beautiful yet simple and every object has a place. The bold hits of graphics on white walls and furniture, the concrete and the wood posts and beams are absolutley stunning. A++!

I absolutely love London designer Phil Cuttance‘s Faceture project. He has built a machine to cast faceted vases, lamps, and the list goes on. It consists of pouring a water-based resin into a simple mould which hardens as it dries. If these images weren’t pretty enough, there’s is a video! Click HERE to see it, it’s so much fun!

Jill Malek’s Luci Della Citta hand screen printed wallpaper. How much do we love this pattern? The soft palate, the dots that look like out of focus snow flakes or lights in a hazy picture. It’s so calm and romantic, it’s simply beautiful.

Malek, based out of New York, specializes in print and pattern for anything from printed books and stationary to textiles and wallpaper. Check out her website for more beautiful prints!

I’m surprisingly loving this graphically stunning tableware by CTRLZAK art an design studio for Italian brand Seletti. The inspiration here is the bridging of traditional chinese porcelain and European design aesthetic. Why not? It works! It’s sweet, hip, and with it.

London designer Paul Cocksedge, one of my favourite lighting designers might I add, has created this beautiful 25 meter sculpture titled “Bourrasque” in Lyon, France, for the recent Fête des Lumières.

I have always been a fan of his work, and this one is nothing short of magical. the 200 suspended sheets are set to mimic papers scatteringin a gust of wind – a beautiful bright image against a backdrop of the 17th century architecture of l’Hotel de Ville. Simply beautiful.

I have, from the get go, been a fan of clustering picture frames. So many options, whether symmetrical or asymmetrical, mismatched or matched, it always makes a perfect statement, and often, an art piece of its own.

My dear friend Jacquelyn over at Lark + Linen sent me a link to this amazing carpet studio by Henzel. The more I went through their website, the more I fell in love and the more I thought, I’d be pretty nervous about walking on these. I know many carpets are considered a piece of art, but I think many of them may actually be worth hanging up on a wall.

Check out this house by Thomas Phifer and Partners located in New York. I love the whiteness in contrast with the surrounding perfectly manucured lawns. The pavilion, with a almost transparent, light-filtering canopy is perfect. The owners, a former museum director and his wife, live happily in this 4,600 SF home which showcases artwork that has been collected over the years.  It’s simply stunning!

Ah, backsplashes. To tile, or not to tile. That’s the usual question. I fell upon this post on Sacramento Street, and spotted a clever idea for a backsplash. Designed by Grant K. Gibons, this kitchen’s backsplash is made of take-out menus. As written on Caitlin’s blog, anything can be used really, so go ahead and forget the tiles.

An addition, I might say, because I can’t quite figure out if it has been done or not, would be perhaps to add 1/4″ tempered glass to protect whichever paper it is you would be using – from the counter to the underside of the upper cabinets. Makes cleaning much easier and would also extend the lifetime of it. Well done Gibons!

I love these colourful and geometric tiles. They’re art in their own right. They’re so perfectly paired with simple, clean interiors to really show off they’re amazingness. That’s an actual word…right?
