A Collection of the Most Elegant Soap Designs



 
Found on Nordstrom for $12


 Having great bathroom essentials that are thoughtfully designed and packaged beautifully makes getting out of bed in the morning much easier. Lovely classic french fragrances, or even  Italian opulent flower fragrances make anyone's day better!
Picking a lovely packaged soap bar comes with its downs too. It is often too precious to even open and ends up becoming an accessory instead of being put to use.
Well, if you want to use it, or simply display it, this soaps are to die for!!

How to make DIY Cardboard Houses

 
 image from here.


We are currently working on a "UN Week" project for Tzu Chi Kindergarten in Jakarta. The plan is to make a city out of recycled cardboard boxes that have been dropped off at the Tzu Chi Recycling Centre.

As you know, used boxes have many prints on them and aren't in great condition as most of them have already been flattened for easy handling, so layers of paint and many masking tape details are needed to make the surface look smooth and even.The paint used is children safe food grade paint and doesn't cover very well, especially on the plastic cello tape. For this, all the tape must be either pulled of or covered in masking tape.



Here are a few pictures that have inspired us to make this project.

MINISTER CAFÉ Has The Most Amazing Design

 


Minister Café was created by the amazingly creative Polish team, Ostecz Creative which is designed to perfection and has many great ideas installed in to it. The greyish interior with dashes of yellow here and there add life to the room and create interesting areas of design.



We believe, that if you put this much thought into the bathroom, then for sure visitors will keep coming in. (To the cafe, not the toilet) :p



 
 Check that out!!




Yumm, we would love that cup of coffee right now :)

 Benches are now increasingly being used in dining rooms around the globe. Once only used at beach sides and around Oriental Asia, they can now be seen as a replacement to the dining chair and can be used in almost any kind of house setting you have.

How to Throw a Cabin Feast

 

 Wen took one look at this picture that we found on Sfgirlbybay blog and knew it would be a super special event with loads of basic back-to-earth designed decoration. The mismatched vintage chairs, cutlery and plates created a magical setting looking out towards the woods.

The feast was held by eatwith, an international community who gathers members from around the world to meet up in small events hosted by other members to share their passion for food, nature and design.

So basically, members that host a gathering will set a price for each member to join in.Why not visit the website and find out what is hapenning around your neighborhood! :)
