dwell[ing]

dwell

looking at dwell is kind of a treat for me. i love looking at amazingly well designed [and photo styled] homes. i then daydream about what i could with my own space [especially if money wasn't an issue].

last month's issue was of particular interest to me because it had a lot of "green" ideas... and because it featured the photography of Bernd and Hilla Becher . again and again i am drawn to imagery that is repetitive, that focuses on something that you normally wouldn't pay attention to, that talks about something mundane in a wholeheartedly UNmundane way. i was familiar with their water tower and industrial building work, but i like the color....

did you guys know that dwell recently re-furbished their website? the blogs [daily, kitchen, tech] are cool, i got lost in the green home section and they've added all this video content . a whole bevy of this "design leader" stuff [my favorite christopher deam the airstreem guy - if i had a million dollars i get one of those to put in my back yard as my "office"] and then there's The Apartment Dinner Series . be a fly on the wall. it's pretty darn cool.

so if you are done shopping and have nothing to do this weekend.... you could spend some serious time dwelling...

dwell's a gooder. i love looking at magazines when i want to relax. it's like a chunk of the current before they move onto next moth.

I'm off to check out all those links, and quite possibly daydream too. Hope you have a perfectly wonderful Christmas, Lisa. I hope you also are able to have a tiny holiday break. See you in 2008, I'm sure it's going to be an amazing year for you.
