ELROY INK

When I think of Tasmania, the first thing that comes to mind is the infamous Looney Tunes character, the Tasmanian Devil. But know, I'm glad to have found these gorgeous giclée prints by Tasmania-born graphic designer Ken Lawson to have a new reference to Australia's favorite vacation island. Based on the surf coast of Victoria, Australia, Ken created a limited and open edition of graphic prints under the name Elroy Ink. “Whilst Elroy Ink aims to express something that is quintessentially me, it's also important to me that my work is accessible enough to find a place in other people's hearts,” he explains. The whole collection is pretty great and is available on his online store. Do you have a fave?

WRITING ON THE WALL

There's nothing like creating art for your own home, but this London-born artist has taken this idea a step further. Well, actually, several walls further. Shantell Martin has made it a project to cover the whole top floor a Brooklyn brownstone with her whimsical line drawings. When she first moved in, her intention was to limit her drawings to parts of a wall in her room, but inch by inch her art spontaneously took over her office and laundry room walls. Apparently, she draws on everything that comes her way, which explains her crazy fun refuge. She's even taken bottles she found on the street as canvas to display her freestyle drawings. I wonder if her mom ever let her paint on the walls when she was little. She's definitely getting away with it now. And I'm glad she is, since I'm really digging her style. Have a designful and relaxing Holiday weekend!

HYPNOTIC TIMES

One of the many finds that caught my attention at ICFF this year, were these fun eco-friendly, handcrafted cardboard and paper wall clocks made by Tendo Studio. The Amarillo Clocks´ colorful hands break up the concentric rings and angles that look almost hypnotic, creating a fabulous design ideal for homes and offices. The hands are totally customizable. You get to choose from orange, green, blue, white, red or yellow so they can match perfectly with your decor. Aren't they fun?

IN THE CIRCLE OF THINGS

I believe simplicity is the key to beautiful design. And for me, the circle is one of those simple, basic shapes that can say so much. Its perfect form has been the basis for so many design solutions throughout time—and keeps inspiring many of us in our daily creative challenges. For German industrial designer Sandra Thomsen, silk screening circles has become one of her passions. These very minimal and graphic prints are some of Sandra's wonderful creations. They're hand-printed on beech plywood and paper using a very interesting color palette. It's great to see how something so serene and understated can add so much on a wall. You can take a look at the whole collection here.

CONCRETE COOL

Inspired by radial geometry and symmetry found in architecture and textiles from cultures around the world, design studio LeeLABS has created Para Clocks—a stunning collection of clocks that combines the raw beauty of concrete with a digitally derived structure. LeeLABS has also joined KickStarter in hopes of raising enough money to build a design app that will allow anyone to customize their own Para Clock. How cool would that be? If you want to learn more about these neat clocks and watch a video about their project you can go here.

TAPING IT UP!

If you're looking to add a little interest to your empty walls, but you're afraid of making a commitment to wallpaper, I think I found a playful solution just for you. How about creating your own abstract artwork with these super graphic and fun wall tapes by Japanese company Sincol x mt. You can mix and match different patterns and colors from their extensive gallery, and because of their translucent quality, your options are endless. Cool, right?

PRIMARY CLOCKS

My goodness, I can't believe how fast time is passing by. It seems it was only yesterday we had to turn our clocks back for Daylight Savings Time. And yes, it's time again to turn them clockwise to make up for the hour we gained last Fall. The only downfall is the 60 minutes of much needed beauty sleep we sadly lose tonight (a double bummer!). That's why I felt it was appropriate to dedicate today's post to these good-looking wall clocks by David Weatherhead & GOOD for Thorsten van Elten. The minimally designed Primary Clocks are made from solid Douglas Fir with a screen-printed clock face and German Quartz mechanism.

CALIFORNIA GOLD

What happens when imaginative storytelling, a strong sense of craft and a good dose of color magically merge under one roof? The answer: Lab Partners, a design studio founded by the husband and wife creative team of Ryan Meis and Sarah Labieniec. Based out of sunny Oakland, California, everything this duo designs is pretty amazing, but this poster series they call California Gold is up there on my list of favorites. These handsome posters feature graphic renditions of some of the Golden State's natural wonders printed in black and gold metallic ink. The whole series is truly a beautiful tribute to nature, and Lab Partner's way of giving back to their inspiration by donating 5% of all sales to the California Nature Conservancy.
