Waste not, want not. My mom used to say that a lot while I was growing up. I bet many others heard that from their WWII era parents, too. Seems to me we live in a disposable world now. Even houses as beautiful as the one shown here by architect Bart Prince– barely 7 years old– are subject to the whims of fickle 1 percenters. Read the full article in the LA Times regarding the controversy over this “tear down” in an exclusive Malibu ‘hood. That’s right: the new owners are planning to tear this marvelous and unusual oceanside home down to replace it with a generic McMansion. Maybe that’s because the previous owners got a divorce soon after commissioning the house but I doubt it…Feng Shui By Fishgirl could remove that negative divorce ch’i energy and restore the home to its positive vibration. Just give me a call and give your neighbors a break—-don’t tear this home down!

Alison Brislin of Apartment Therapy did a very funny post that shows her Creativity & Future Projects skills to the max. The AT editor took photos of interior design rooms and matched them to photos of Ryan Gosling in a variety of outfits–the photo juxtapositions and commentary seemingly coming from the celebrity himself. Check out the post at the link below and see if you don’t find it hilarious as well as inspiring (for the excellent writing that Alison does as well as the visual interior design motifs).
