John Maeda + Cliff Burton = Sold OUT before I even got a chance to purchase!

From Jen Bekman’s 20 x 200.

John is a very sweet man whom I have had the pleasure to spend time with on several occasions due to my husband’s graphic design career. I love the combination of hopefulness, pedestrian approachability, wonky type, and color. I often drive through the international district wondering which of the buildings is the one where his parents made tofu as he was growing up. Now I will imagine this as the sign that sits outside of the building = a very smart little boy’s way of addressing the “what do you want to be when you grow up?” question….


Brecker House – Dining Chairs

The table is below.

I think the green would be a great splash of color on each side and then the heads of table could be punctuated with some different armchairs.

Get Packing.

Check these out! I would love to see my brother (who believes himself to be a superlative packer) try and fit a pile of these into his trunk!

I love color, colors etc. and thus I too love paint chips. I often go to sleep flipping through a book or shuffling a deck of them. And I am happy to say that Martha has a nice new line of them at Home Depot. I grabbed them all on Sunday while shopping for a new sponge mop, and spent the day flipping through them. The colors are tasty and many have great names like Bone Folder, and Wild Turkey, Graham Cracker Crust, and Tailor’s Chalk that only serve to reinforce the tasteful brand that is so Martha.  If only she would relaunch Blueprint Magazine!  Someday…. perhaps I will have a brand of paint. For now back to painting.

I thought I would pop a couple of things up that a client sent me.

This is just the cabinet / counter install. The rest of the color palatte is muted to focus on the light in the space and the exterior – it is a compound on a cliff on Whidbey afterall. I wish I could play the voicemail the client left after the painting was completed. Full of joy and @#$%^&*( * unbloggables. I love it when that happens. The cabinets are C2 – Curry.

Here is a video narrated by the client, and please look at the example of the contractor (Jay Parker) cleaning up – rare!
