 Gorta Yuuki

I absolutely adore these photos by Japanese photographer Gorta Yuuki. There is such a serene quality to them with such glorious lighting and low contrast and saturation (why does everyone over-saturate these days?!). So calming and beautiful. Having a crappy Monday? This is your cure.

Monday Musings: Small Space Decorating

Darlings! Are we all in extreme recovery mode? Mind, body and spirit? Yaaaaaameeeeetoooo. I hope you all had a fabulous 4th full of sun, fund and booze (naturally)! Unfortunately we all have to return to reality at some point, and mine came earlier than would have preferred. Sigh. Back to the grind.

I have to tell you, I have small space decorating on the brain like woah lately. I know that is super ironic and bizarre since I live in a house currently, but that is about to change. I have been holding out on you for awhile now, and I feel that is time to really come clean here. I am moving (AGAIN)! It has been in the works for some time now but is now official. I am moving to Dallas! This is all happening before the end of the year. So, KC you are not rid of me quite yet. Things to do until then? Sell my house and all of its contents. Get ready for it lovers, its going to be liquidation pandemonium. Don’t worry, y’all will get first dibs. But this is essential in order for me to downsize from a 3 bedroom house to a one bedroom loft. Let’s take a look at some imagery that is inspiring my stylish space reduction.

Instagram Fave Friday: Nectar and Stone

Ok so my last post sorta bummed me out so let’s talk about creative handpainted gold leaf baked goods before the weekend hits. I don’t want to end my blog this week talking about dead birds! Downer! I decided to launch a new column on decor8 that I believe I can actually stick to called Instagram Fave Friday because I find a bevy of great stuff on IG and I feel so limited when trying to share great IGers. And trust me, I find some amazing IG peeps because I have a baby and my iPhone is my best friend when he’s asleep in my arms – so I surf and save constantly. I’m an IG machine. So I figured to just devote a weekly column that you can visit on Friday to end each week looking at beautiful things from talented people. Sounds like a plan.

Rubin & Rotman Architects completed Aanischaaukamikw Cree Cultural Institute in the northern Canadian village of Oujé-Bougoumou, paying tribute to local architecture. The building’s concept turns to the Cree people’s traditional longhouse, the shaptuan, and to the particular context of the region. In this village, built in 1992 and unique in many respects, the main buildings were set within a broad circle in the centre. The Aanischaaukamikw Institute rounds out the layout of this space, where the Band Council office is also located.
