Book Smart

It is so refreshing to see architects and designers who aren't afraid to stray from the typical and lend a creative eye to every inch of the space they're creating. In the design of McNally Jackson Books Cafe by Front Studio, the subtle details and innovative use of materials come together to create a space that is at once bold and restrained. There are lots of clever and quirky details, but the space never feels 'themey' or juvenile, which is not always easy to accomplish. The overall aesthetic of the furniture and fixtures as well as the color scheme help to round out the space and make it feel more sophisticated.

I love the subtle texture and soft grey shades the open books create on the curved feature wall. Books were hung from the ceiling to look "as if a pile of books had been thrown into the sky and frozen."

The folding tables along the curved wall were made to resemble closed books when not in use.

Girly Girls

So obsessed with these gorgeous fashion illustrations from artist Leigh Viner. She is definitely one of my all time favorite Etsy finds (I'm still obsessed with this print I bought from her awhile back). I love that they're sort of girly with a hard edge. Be sure to check out her blog for some great eye candy and inspiration.

(The second to last one, entitled "Push" is my absolute favorite - I'm considering designing my entire bedroom around it)

The "Stuck In My Head" Edition

Because I watched 500 Days of Summer no less than six times over the weekend. And I apologize for the horrifying video, but the Pixies are weird, man.
