Iris Apfel

"My husband used to say I look at a piece of fabric and listen to the threads. It tells me a story. It sings me a song. I have to get a physical reaction when I buy something. A coup de foudre - a bolt of lightning!"

She is one cool and amazingly stylish lady!

(spotted on Oh Joy!)

la bibliochaise by nobody&co is pretty amazing - this would finally inspire me to put away the books piling up in randoms corners of my apartment.

i love...

...these colorful painted stairs by artist Horst Gläsker - each step conveys "a different emotion or behavior associated with relationships" - so sweet.
