Patterned Rollers for the Wallpaper Phobic

This is a really cool idea! I’m going to keep this in mind when I move to a new house in 2 months.

A Detailed House

Because of HGTV and the DIY Channel, I am a little nervous to hang wallpaper. It’s difficult to put up well and time consuming to take down. Bottom line: it’s a commitment. But it’s soooo pretty!

Pantone Tarts, Color Swatches You Would Like To Eat


Designs good enough to eat? We think so! How sweet (literally) is this? French food designer Emilie De Griottes has come up with dessert tarts that resemble Pantone color swatches for French culinary magazine Fricote.

Griottes uses everyday foods such as berries, bananas and candies for the respective colors, and marks each tart with the Pantone color represented. An imaginative take on the classic colour chips, perhaps Griottes can make tarts for each swatch?

Take a peek at some her brilliant and colorful creations:

Artist vs Makeup: Cezanne

Cezanna makeup? Cezanne was interested in life as shapes. He liked to simplify them into their most basic shapes like cylinders and cones. He also liked to mess with perspective. If you look at tables and walls in his paintings you will notice that the lines that are formed don’t line up correctly. One-point perspective doesn’t exist in these paintings. But, back to my point. Why name your makeup brand after Cezanne? He wasn’t trying to paint things for beauty’s sake or even idealized, which is what we would expect from a makeup brand. Cezanne wanted to push the boundaries of the art world at his time and make the canvas into something that it had never been before.

Here are two of his paintings of women. If you were an art history student, such as myself, than this is what you would picture when you heard the name Cezanne.
