Design Love: Otherworldly Sink

Today’s design love comes via Dezeen, which highlighted this stainless steel bit of gorgeousness from Canadian studio The Practice of Everyday Design.

“The idea was to give it a sense of time, as if someone had sat there every day scrubbing the surface until it was so clean it became a mirror,” says Antoine Morris. “The final effect is also almost as if the sink is covered in condensation and someone wiped just one area clean to see themselves.”

The effect is one of ethereal, haunting beauty, as if someone drew back a curtain to reveal a window into another world. Love.

Interior Love

Some interiors from Furbish Studio caught my eye today.

Cute waiting room and/or living room, all patterned pillows and pastel colors – I’m especially in love with that raspberry armchair.

This is a fairly ordinary kitchen, but I love the boho rug and the plants that brighten it up.

This eclectic interior has bold background accents – velvet red wall, blue and white curtains – balacned out by plain tan furniture – and a vaguely colonial air, with its leopard-print pillow, zebra table, and spotted rug.

I’ve seen some displays of starburst mirrors that I liked, but this one is hogging all the space and attention and I’m just not a fan of the elongated look of the room in general

Design Love: All of the Lights

I have an obsession with lights. The warm muted glow of a lamp, the bright definitive statement of a ceiling light, the throwback vintage of a wall sconce, the magic-carpet-ride of Christmas lights or string lights, the slight oriental touch of a globe lamp or paper lantern, the bold designer statement of hanging lights, the luxuriousness of a chandelier.

This industrial chandelier from Uncovet is one of the most gorgeous of its kind I’ve seen – and I already think that all industrial lighting is stunning. 18 lights, stained ebony wood, black wire, and hardware in antique silver and antique gold.

It’s really hard for me to handle the perfection of these minimalist wood hanging lights from Masahiro Minami design studio, appropriately titled ‘glory.’

Curated: New Design Magazine

One of my very favorite design bloggers, Priya Iyer of Once Upon a Tea Time, has created her own magazine of carefully-curated interior and design inspiration. It is a treasure trove of bright fabrics, unusual decor, and interviews with creatives and Renaissance women. I’ve always particularly enjoyed Priya’s blog (and now magazine) because she often highlights Indian designers, and while Indian design tends to be vibrant and unique, bursting with color and bold patterns, it can often be overlooked in mainstream design publications and discussions.
