Monday Morning Photo(s) Office Edition

For today’s Monday Morning Photo(s) we have an advertising firm in Atlanta- 22squared. A few interesting trends that we keep seeing in office design are part of the overall design of this office. The space is meant to be deliberately collaborative, but executives do have their own private offices, incorporating the use of furniture from the older space but with an upgrade like fabric or paint, and of course the use of writable walls making collaboration theoretically happen anywhere. With the help of Gensler the company applied to receive the second-highest certification for environmental friendliness from the U.S. Green Building Council.

Here are a few images via the Wall Street Journal via Gensler

Interior/Fashion Easter eggs

For Easter Sunday we have some stylish eggs inspired by colorful interiors and fashionable Spring/Summer outfits.

Did you know that the practice of decorating eggs is ancient, pre-dating Christian traditions?  Ostrich eggs with engraved decoration that are 60,000 years old have been found in Africa. Decorated ostrich eggs, and representations of ostrich eggs in gold and silver, were commonly placed in graves of the ancient Sumerians and Egyptians as early as 5,000 years ago. For Easter Sunday we have some stylish eggs inspired by colorful interiors and fashionable Spring/Summer outfits.

Get creative and have fun with these DIY Easter Eggs!

If you live in San Francisco, you probably have seen that abandoned building on the corner of 6th and Howard that has couches and other home accessories hanging from its exteriors walls, the creator of the unique and eye catching art installation is Brian Goggin, who won permission from the previous owners to install what he calls “Defenestration,” meaning “throwing things out of windows”.

The building, that will be demolished to make place for low income housing in  September used to be The Hugo Hotel and dates back to 1906.

Here are a few pictures and a video, the installation will be demolished next Fall, so make sure to check it out before its gone!
