An Amazing Listing

We came across a unique Swedish real estate listing while reading Desire to Inspire this week. The images have all been treated with a sepia effect and the owners (or models) are captured in old world clothes that seem to coincide with the history of the house. The images are so wonderfully graphic that we had to share them with you...

Wonderland on Queen Street

While exploring Queen Street in Toronto this weekend, we found an amazing maze of alleyways filled with walking birds, smiling raindrops and happy grenades. It seems as if the Queen of Hearts can hold court anywhere...

When we're in the area, by Gramercy Park in Manhattan, we marvel at the architectural friezes on Baruch College's 23rd Street building. By HP Camden, the sculptures represent the muscular figuration of the late 20's through 40's and the WPA inclination toward narratives of idealized vocation- industrial or agricultural. The stylized figures are modernist yet classical.
