Even though this is approximately the purple of the bedroom in our previous house, I don't actually like it here, but I do love the concept and overall affect.
In the same vein from ReadyMade:
Thomas Wold --of course. I'm jazzed by everything I've seen from this guy. You look at his pieces and can see how his mind works. It's fun, colorful and eclectic. He breaks a bunch of rules but everything still functions. He's my current upcycle-y hero.
Also from Apartment Therapy, this idea for using vintage tea packing crates as veneer for kitchen cabinets. Possibly greener--but definitely more expensive--than buying something from Ikea, but it is cool. Who knows, maybe Ikea will rip this off. Shouldn't be too hard to print this pattern on Melamine. It will be next year's Teböx line of cabinets. Speaking of Ikea, I googled it and there actually is a Swedish furniture name generator. (I LOVE THE WEB!)
