This is the perfect gift for the friend who never seems to tire of her constantly ringing cell phone. The I’m So Popular phone book from Pamela Barsky is the cutest, and if you think we’ve put this behavior in the past just because we’re out of high school… Well ladies, you’re wrong. I know lots of high school students running around and they graduated light years ago… Pick up yours here at See Jane Work for $25 and let the popularity contest begin.

I just came across a beautiful new read from North Carolina blogger, Amy Leonard (she just started blogging last week!) called Design DNA. I spotted an image that I just had to share with all of you, it’s this beautiful dressing area with shutters made using antique Indian screens. There is very little I wouldn’t do to have these in my home. I may even turn tricks. (kidding!) Imagine returning from a long day, stepping through doors like these into your dressing area or bedroom? Or, better yet, having these on the front of your house. These are positively grand. I need to seriously stop gazing at this image because it’s driving me nuts that they don’t belong to me! :)

Another presentation that held my attention was the project “Murs Portables” by Hester van Dijk from Overtreders W. Multi-functional walls that allow the home dweller to not only move them around as they choose (they are free-standing) but these architectural partitions (padded, “x” design, blinds, shades, etc.) can also serve multiple fuctions – to filter light, to insulate for either blocking sound or adding warmth, to frame a space, to block light, create privacy, the list goes on and on… But always to create visual interest. These would be gorgeous in a loft environment or office space, don’t you think?
