Awesome Tree House For Kids… Or You

I Found a post on Eilas Photography’s Blog and thought it was inspiring, in a different kind of way. This married couple promised their kids a tree house. So, the father, apparently a creative individual, decided to put together this amazing structure. I’m not sure how long it took to put it together, or even if they had planned a timeframe, but it looks like there was a ton of detail and thought put into it. This is not your cookie-cutter tree house!

Check out the blog for more details and pictures. There are a ton of great images on there!

Andy Warhol’s Townhouse Selling for $5.8 Million

Andy Warhol's former townhouse is on the market for $5.8 million

I recently read on Radar Online that Andy Warhol’s former apartment in New York is on sale for $5.8 million. At first I got a little bit excited because he was an artist. I always get excited about other artists. But I am not a huge fan of Andy Warhol. I don’t think that his Campbell’s soup labels and Marilyn Monroe diptych could persuade me to live in his townhouse. What do you think? Would you live in this Manhattan townhouse? If so, would you pay that much because Andy Warhol owned it at one point?

Staircases From Around the World

Stair cases are fun. I’m serious, what little kid doesn’t want to play on the stairs when you go to the mall? How about the escalator? Moving stairs! Come on now. Stairs are awesome. So, I found this neat post Via edot and thought you guys would enjoy it.

edot compiled some images of staircases from around the world. Some are intriguing, yet practical and others are not so practical, but all of them are unique. Their designers deserve some credit regardless of whether or not they were actually considering the functionality.  Maybe those designs would be better displayed in a museum…

Enjoy!

You may think interior design is easy, but creating the PERFECT room isn’t.
Each of these rooms are perfect in their own way and would be difficult
for just anyone to pull off. They combine the perfect locations, views,
design and furniture to create a space that’s so amazing, it seems
like it’s straight out of a catalog.

No matter what you like, you’ll fall in love with at least one of these rooms.

QR Code Pavilion in Russia
via Microsoft Tag

I had every intention of rewording the following paragraph, but there is just no way to say it better. It is perfect. So, I am quoting Elliott Lemenager from Microsoft Tag. Wow, holy QR Codes.

Get ready to have your mind blown with QR Code mania. Russia’s futuristic, QR code pavilion at this year’s Venice Architecture Biennale, is a sight to behold. With every nook and cranny covered with giant qr codes, visitors can scan the QR Codes to explore plans and models for Skolkovo, a Russian city dedicated to science and technology that’s currently under development. This is one of the coolest displays of QR Codes I have ever seen but I’ll stop talking and let the images show you what it’s like.”
