Habitat | Living Spaces in shades of Caramel + Mint

 

Elements in Doug Aitken’s house in Venice, California, blur the line between inside and out.  “The goal was to create a warm, organic modernism that’s also perceptual and hallucinatory.”

Silk-screened walls mimic hedges growing outside the windows; the corner window is amazing.  Microphones integrated into the foundation of the house amplify the sounds of the moving earth and sea.  Stairs can be musically played as well as tables that alternate as sonic tables that can be played like a xylophone.  A kaleidoscopic staircase is constructed of angled mirrors, reflecting the sun’s movement illuminating the interiors.

Yard Remodel Project: Outdoor Entertaining and Relaxing

 

DIYer architect John Tong, founding principal of 3rd Uncle Design, turned a century-old industrial dairy in a back alley into a home with a colorful playground for three kids.  “The courtyard is an extension of the house, with a big table that hosts parties, a stage for impromptu performances, and part of an old loft overhead that will one day become a tree house for the children.”

Paper flowers, stacks of vintage books, cute props, an antique car and typewriter, old luggage bags and more.  An amazing styled “Vintage Preppy” photo shoot from the talented duo Caroline and Daniel behind Tinywater Photography.

I have been a fan of Tinywater Photography’s hip, fun and offbeat photographs for a long time now; and have come across many of their beautiful shots over the years.  There is something about their artistic style that catches your eye and who better to describe their style other than the artists themselves.

Come along for a ride, on a wild animal safari birthday party.

Daneve is the owner and creative force behind Ah-Tissue.  She put together this safari themed party for her son Tahlin’s 3rd birthday with the help of her husband Darren.  Being a huge supporter of small businesses, she made a point to purchase supplies from great companies she had found through Facebook.  Since the party revolved around nature, she tried to keep it as eco-friendly as possible – using a lot of recycled items found around her house and buying organic and biodegradable products.
