TROMPE L’OEIL FACADES

 

Don’t you just love trompe l’oeil facades? As if the great trickster painted these buildings… we are fooled by what we see. Or are we?

ARTFUL JARS (DO IT YOURSHELF)

Seek out Creativity & Future Projects and you shall find a myriad of cool ideas on the internet! Case in point:artist/designer Peter Marigold’s art piece “Jam Jar Shelf” shown here and at this link.  Not only is it beautifully creative, it’s also functional. And Peter’s got some very interesting furniture pieces on his website, too.

Think of this piece in your kitchen where you can fill the jars with colorful spices and put cookbooks on the shelf. Or in your art studio: getting your crayons and erasers and other tidbits organized is good feng shui and the see through glass jars let the colors shine through. And what guy wouldn’t love this in his woodshop filled with nails and screws? You can create your own DIY version of this easily. All you need is a collection of screw lid jars and  some skill with a screwdriver and drill and a good shelf to install on. Send me your pics when you’re done!

LOVIN’ THE USA–the USA bookshelf by Ron Arad

USA bookshelf by artist Ron Arad.

Don’t you just think this is the most cleverest bookshelf you’ve ever seen?  I think it’s an art piece so don’t get all critical about the functionality. As more of us turn to digital e-readers like Kindles and Nooks and iPads, books may end up serving as objets d’art after all. From a feng shui manifestation viewpoint, I would put all my raciest liberal subversive books in the Texas and Florida sections of this Ron Arad bookshelf. Hehehe.
