tree casita

Over the years I have accumulated a rather large pool of talented friends that I collaborate with and/or bounce ideas back and forth with. John Hettwer is one of those individuals. Rice University trained architect and old work colleague, John has amazed me with his beautiful modern tree house interpretation. If I had a backyard I would have him design one for me immediately! What an amazing retreat this would be or even a little office in your own little jungle that you call your backyard. This specific tree house is located on a one acre plot about 2 hours south of Chicago (John is/was an ex-Chicagoan and now turned Houstonian). I think people in Houston could benefit from having a little casita for their children and/or themselves for a little weekday/end getaway! You can contact John if you are interested in having him design one for you @ Great job John!

Caught my attention on Supermarket by Andy Pratt Design.

How amazing is this? For $800 one can dream but if you've got the spare change why not add a little interest to a space. Designed by Portland based glass studio Esque & available via Supermarket. Check out their website for more amazing glassware... oh yeah and check out the amazing logo type! So minimal and modern!

Here are some pretty cool type tee's by when seven becomes fourteen available via Supermarket.

chi town weekend

This past weekend we had Colt's mom and aunt in town from Stephenville, TX and also our friend Audrey of Harbenger Duo (Houston). Here are a few of the over 800 photographs I took this weekend. I really have no idea what got into me and all those photographs! Enjoy!

harbenger duo

Attention fellow Houstonians! My dear friends Audrey and Josh Hardesty who own a furniture partnership Harbenger Duo, are having their very first show at Design Within Reach- Houston on Thursday July 23 from 6-9 pm. Please go out and support them and have a great time! I hope you two have an amazing turnout and have a great show! I wish I could be there for you guys but I am moving to Andersonville that day here in Chicago. I am sending along my mom and sister to represent Colt and I. More info on Harbenger Duo can be found at their blog or their website.

ship me back to texas

This amazing getaway was featured in today's New York Times. It is a fabulous west Texas retreat made of 5 shipping containers called Cinco Camp for former Rolling Stone editor Roger Black. “I wanted something that blends into the landscape and could be installed and eventually removed with minimal disturbance to the environment,” he said. I am enamored with west Texas and will one day have a place out there with Colt. Until that day comes we will continue going out to Marfa and other west Texas towns every year.
