I’ve been seeing this door on my way to work in Montreal and fell in love with it. I managed to take a snap while standing on the bus with my camera phone.  I find that the glare, courtesy of the bus window, adds a layer of interest and non-perfection.

The thing that strikes me about this door is the bold choice of graphic and colours used. It totally says the people who live here don’t subscribe to the regular ideal of design. I secretly want to meet them. Maybe I have or maybe I will.

Hacky discovery

A few weeks ago I discovered a website called Home Hacks and I have to say it’s a pretty slick idea. It’s an offshoot of one my favorite blogs in the whole wide world Apartment Therapy.

It’s has a great mix of household improvement tips, a healthy dose of eco geek chic and design-yness of course.

My favorite combination!
