SHOW ME HOW

Although painting is no science, there are a few basic steps you must follow to make you project go as smooth as possible. No matter your level of experience, the rules apply to all of us. There are plenty of how-to books and manuals that will help you make the best of your task at hand, but I recently came across a series of instructional videos by Glidden Paints that really breaks down the painting process into seven easy-to-follow online tutorials. These “Show Me How” videos by Lindsay Ballard provide quick, quality tips for easing the painting process. From prepping the walls to cleaning up, her tips are concise and very helpful. Here are a few of her videos:

DELICIOUSLY DESIGNED

Can you guess what these are? I know, the popsicle stick sort of gives it away. But I bet you had never seen a popsicle so incredibly genius as these. The KYL21 is a new take on the classic popsicle—a real masterpiece of avant-garde cuisine. The molecular design popsicles are created by Berlin designer and chef David Marx. Unfortunately, they're not available for everyone, just a few lucky attendees at fashion shows, film premieres and VIP parties in the German capital. But be patient since this über cool dessert will hit the market next Spring. Yumm! I can't wait!!

PLAYFUL MINIMALISM

I can't get enough of this beautiful series of prints by Spencer Harrison of Happy Studio. His minimalist interpretations of everyday objects, both in form and colors, is what makes them so fun and whimsical. All 100 prints in the series are also available as iPhone cases, throw pillows, laptop decals, t-shirts and totes. But if 100 are not enough for you, he comes out with a new design every week. They're so sweet that I'm having a hard time to choose my favorites. But here are some in my list.

COLOR COATED

This is by far one of the coolest learning centers I've ever seen. The Spanish school 2day Languages in Valencia, Spain, was designed by Masquespacio using the three colors of the brand to color code each space. The sorbet-like palette is used beautifully creating a gradient effect on the walls—a cool technique to add softness to the rooms. There's no doubt the students in this school are very lucky. Who in the right mind will not love to learn Spanish in a place like this? It must be quite the learning experience.

TROPICAL FLAVOR

This luscious house in Comparta, Portugal is an eclectic design cocktail with a sweet tropical flavor that brightens the spirit. Graphic area rugs play a starring role in the design story by delineating the various living areas in the house—a cool way of adding bright splashes of color to the vast sea of white. Another good move by the designers was to accentuated the minimalist decor with retro touches that give this mansion a modern feel.

DESIGNING OUT OF THE BOX

The daring use of color in this restored Victorian home in Melbourne, Australia is simply to die. Architects Nick Travers and Justin Northrop from the architecture studio Techne, strategically used just the right pops of color to create a harmonious flow from room to room. Every space in the home is stunning. The playfulness in which the vivid hues were applied is brilliant, particularly against the elegant white canvas of the rooms. I give the creative duo two thumbs up for designing out the box and having fun while doing it. Happy weekend!

CONTRAST IN PLAY

There's nothing pretentious about this Swedish farmhouse. The renovation by Jonas Labbé and Johannes Schotanus of LASC Studio is all about experience and simplicity. I do love everything about this Summer retreat, but the stark contrast of the black and white exterior to the bold use of orange and turquoise in the interiors is absolutely clever.
