Current Obsession... Brooklyn to West

Brooklyn to West

Brooklyn to West headboard

Brooklyn to West is my latest obsession and has me dreaming about starting a woodwork course in the new year. I loved woodwork at school and always wished I could have studied it at GCSE.

This beautiful furniture is made from reclaimed wood so each piece Ariele makes is unique...  based in New York,  having left her native California to study sculpture. Ariele says she

"eventually gave in to my desire and decided to build reclaimed furniture instead. It felt great to start making things that people needed, wanted, and could use in their daily lives."

I urge you to head over to her blog and shop

The home of... Artist, Louis Masai Michel...

The London Home and Studio of Artist Louis Masai Michel

This converted warehouse apartment is the  London Home and studio of artist Louis Masai Michel.

LOUIS MASAI MICHEL grew up with Afrocentric artefacts, voodoo dolls and living what many other children read about in storybooks. His father was born in a mud hut in Cameroon, in northwest Africa, and was the only white child in the village.

Louis’ grandfather, a Dutch geologist, travelled across the world with his work and his family followed him. This meant, for Louis’ father, being raised in the African and American continents. This heritage has forged within Louis a strong connection to Africa and its many animals.

Louis’ parents met at art school and eventually became restaurateurs. Louis picked up both art and cooking skills from his parents and they are serving him well......

Space colony on the Moon

Space Colony Artworks credited to NASA Ames Research Centre

I love Science Fiction. Star-trek, Star wars, Firefly, V, 2001, Lost in Space..... even Doom...I love them all, they fuel my secret dream of living in a space station or having a little space ship... not impossible I am sure :)

So you can imagine I was mega excited by the news that NASA 'may' be planing to build a space station just outside the moon's orbit. So cool right?

Above are some wonderful Space Colony Artworks from the 1970's, that I first discovered, and drooled over, via Lune Blog some months back. The are NASA concept images from the NASA Ames summer studies from the 1970's depicting life on a Space Colony.... Indoor forests and lakes... I could defiantly live here...

What do you guys think? Would you move to a space colony or stay down on Earth?

Secret Canadian TreeHouse :The HemLoft

The HemLoft: This beautiful Treehouse is in a secret Location in the Canadian woodlands

This 'secret' treehouse is an illegally built haven in Whistler, Canada built by carpenter Joel Alan. A labour of love costing $6000 to build, using reclaimed materials and taking months to find just the right tree, i am sure you will agree The HemLoft is the perfect treehouse getaway.

"The HemLoft is a self-funded secret creation that built on crown land in Whistler, Canada. It hangs on a precipitous slope, in a towering stand of hemlocks, about a five minute walk from the nearest road. When I started building it, I was just a fledgling carpenter, living out of my car. Building an experimental orb deep in the woods, with no electrical power, isn’t the recommended way to ease yourself into carpentry. However, I was armed with a couple of the most powerful tools a carpenter can have: blind naiveté and supreme determination."
