The Bridge House, San Diego, CA

bridgehouse1.jpg

I keep finding myself real estate shopping/researching more and more - especially paying attention to unusual design solutions to challenging lots - and today this Bridge House on 8th Street in Hillcrest, San Diego, CA caught my eye. Owners, Rammy and Traci Cortez, and architect, Hector Magnus of Architects Magnus build The Bridge House. Quite the unmissable black and white structure that initially looks like two houses, but is actually a fascinating solution to a 10ft city utility easement running through the center of the property. It is a two-story, 2,700 square feet, 4 bedrooms, 3 1/2 baths single family home with a grated steel 12-foot bridge, on a mere 4,725 sqft lot. The pictures are a bit confusing to stitch together in my head… until i dove into the 3D Walkintour (pssst - jump to floor 3 to see what’s above the garage, and jump to another floor to get back out.) I wonder what the rules to an easement are - you can build a bridge over it? Or does it have to be see through? Will have to look into that more…

In the mean time - take a peek inside and around the house on the next page!

Bulbo Cynara LED Grow Lights

bulbo6.jpg

As you may have noticed - i’ve been doing a lot of research on plants as of late. Currently looking into indoor grow lights… and found the beautiful, unique Bulbo lights! Particularly i’m fascinated by the Bulbo Cynara LED Light system. As they say, “Influenced by Italian tradition and inspired by nature. We put sunlight in a lamp.” It’s lampshade is inspired by flowerpots - made from Italian terracotta with a splash of glaze both inside and out (depending on which one you pick), and the expanding aluminum rods allow the light to grow with your plant so it always receives just the right amount of light. It’s a lovely looking alternative to the more industrial setups, and turns your indoor plant setups into stunning design features. It’s also easy to adapt to a changing home/space - you can suspend the lights over the plants, “plant” them in the pots, or have them free standing over a few plants. As for special editions - while they already come in a range of colors, you can currently find a Conran Shop Special Edition which has a glossy white shade and black and white striped cord. The lights spectrum is optimized for herbs and vegetables as well as things like aloe vera and strawberries. See lots of pictures of how lovely the details are on the next page!

Rumpl Faded Puffy

fade1.jpg

I can’t stop staring at this stunning photo of the Rumpl Pyro-Fade Puffy - those colors! That lush forest! Can’t deny that the colors scream with a bright pop of colors that flow right into each other, and photograph stunningly! (AKA perfect gift for your instagram/photo obsessed friends?) Also the Ocean-fade blues are just mesmerizingly beautiful too! So tempting - these special Rumpl Faded Puffy throw blankets are exclusive to REI. I’m currently curled up in our Rumpl Down Puffy (which is SO warm, almost too warm for me when it’s not winter) as i write this, and dreaming up how fun the Faded Puffies would be on our adventures (or wrapped up under the tree for our adventurous friends!)… see more pics on the next page!

Luxury Auto Espresso Cups, etc.

espresso0.jpg

As we ran around the LA Auto Show 2016, i kept noticing limited edition espresso cups (and mugs! but really, so many espresso sets) - so it started as a joke between Shawn and i to see if there were enough different luxury automotive espresso cups (direct from the brands) to have a full on little cafe… and the more i looked, the more i found… and they are pretty fun! So here’s a round up of mostly espresso cups, and then also some really crazy mugs and milk/sugar sets! And i suppose you could see this as a holiday gift guide if you’re looking to restock your home/office coffee setup or need some surprising gifts for the car folks who have everything - check it all out on the next page!

NOTlabs: Workshop Pergola/Deck

pergola0.jpg

We built a pergola/deck! When I get antsy for newness or itching to move, Shawn usually indulges me by helping rearrange rooms… or in this case, building a NEW room! Just off the garage/workshop, we’ve built a fun semi-covered/UV blocking space to work, play, brainstorm, etc. Also a perfect solution to minimize lawn coverage in the drought, and open up options for all kinds of new experiments and projects! For those following us @NOTlabs on Instagram, you may remember earlier this summer we built the pergola/deck just before embarking on the Nashville Project House adventure. We hit the road about a day after finishing it, and barely had a chance to hang out and enjoy it! And of course… moving so fast in my head, i totally forgot how much we’d done before leaving! So - going through my phone, i just found and rounded up our making of pictures - and i’m exhausted already! So on the next page you can see the full making of process, and some of the fun toys/tools we discovered to make it all possible. And… a peek at how it is currently - glowing with little spherical string lights and a work/hang out space below! (And of course, a bunch of ridiculous Bucky pictures along the way too.)

Carlton Edwards Slickrock House

slickrock0.jpg

This is the Carlton Edwards designed Slickrock House in the Mountain Air Community of Burnsville, NC. I stumbled across with our new side project Future Nashville Instagram where i’m sharing interesting designs - from Nashville homes to places and products - as we watch the city evolve so quickly before our eyes! Basically, this emerged as part of the next phase of our NOTCOT Nashville Project House, where all of my ongoing research needed its own digital space. It’s all part of our process while we dream about what to build on the lot behind the little house!

So, while hunting and learning about design/build folks in Nashville, i came across Carlton Edwards which is an interesting design/build firm based in Asheville, Memphis, and Nashville. Their house i keep coming back to is the Slickrock House (2009), so precariously perched on a steep lot similar to ours! And as we will likely have to do too - they have a bridge from sidewalk to front door! It’s interesting to see the design choices they made for the cantilevered woody house. Mountain Xpress says that the “house’s design mixes industrial features, such as steel beams, with native wood, including cedar, cypress, Douglas fir, walnut and recycled heart of pine. Floor-to-ceiling windows offer sweeping mountain views. The home also has a living roof covered with vegetation.” See all the exterior details on the next page!

The Sill x Brian Giniewski

sill1.jpg

Yes, i know, i’m totally going through a plant obsession at the moment (as you can see on Instagram), and as usual that comes with a heavy design filter on it. It comes through phases, and between craziness my gardens have always been a source of inspiration, distraction, amusement, and fascination. Also - it’s spring! So even the folks who aren’t in year round, warm sunniness are all plant/garden happy at the moment! And it’s so contagious! With our California drought situation - while some are all about hardscaping and saving water, i’ve been finding myself wanting to SAVE THE TREES! My inner lorax is coming out every time we see people killing off their lush yards, only to hardscape them or fill them with “drought tolerant plants” and then proceed to not water them… AT ALL… and then a few weeks later we watch it all whither away… and their large stunning trees dry out and get blown over in the wind. It’s the saddest! So, the drought sucks, but our trees deserve some water too… they help purify the air, provide shade, and give so many native creatures a home! Anyhow - rant over - i’m kind of plant obsessed at the moment and having so much fun with it!

So on plant/design intersections… how awesome are these colorful cake like pots? This limited collection for The Sill by Brian Giniewski is just mesmerizing. Especially their popping pastel photoshoot! Each piece in the collection is a one of a kind artist edition that is hand thrown and kiln fired 4 times. And literally dripping with color. Take a look at the details on the next page!

The (Hot) Cactus Store of Echo Park

cactus1.jpg

The Cactus Store in Echo Park is something one needs to experience in person. I can’t explain quite how surreal it feels to be in a space the size of my kitchen, tiptoeing through a maze of cinder blocks with terra cotta pots balanced on top of them… each filled with incredibly beautiful and SUPER STABBY cacti. We’ve all heard of being the bull in a china shop, but this felt more like you’re a piece of china walking through a shop of bulls! One mis-step and those cactus thorns will get you!

Perhaps they too also realize you can only really experience in person, since the website gives you little info (or imagery) of what you will find there. It in fact looks more like a site that is channeling the 90’s internet - with flashing backgrounds and bold colored basic fonts and blocks… though the main background is a google maps street view of the desert in Chile. But their HotCactus_LA Instagram will give you a bit more of a peek into their world if you can’t make it in person. According to Gardenista - “The tiny 350-square-foot store is run by a group of a cactus collectors, enthusiasts, and friends: Carlos Morera, (a graphic designer and alum of LA-based Commune Design), along with his uncle Johnny Morera (legendary nursery man and cactus wizard) and four more friends (Jeff Kaplon, Max Martin, Greg Passuntino, and Professor Christian Cummings).” Some of these guys are also behind Help Ltd., a local design studio. They don’t stock just any cacti - there seem to be amazing stories behind the places they source them all and the team is incredibly knowledgable about all things cacti. A collector and plant lover alike will be enamored by the world they’ve created. Now if only their space expanded and we got a chance to see their amazing greenhouses and studio spaces too!

Take a look on the next page for a peek inside the store! I couldn’t help but walk away with half a dozen gorgeously simple pots for my ever growing garden too!

Cybex by Marcel Wanders

cybexwanders0.jpg

The Cybex by Marcel Wanders “Parents Collection” that is freshly launching at Milan Design Week is making me glad we don’t have a baby… because that pig and rocker are pretty tempting! If only the rocker/chairs had the ability to evolve and grow beyond infant stages to stay useful in a kid free home! The collection includes a high chair, rocker, bouncer, and colorful accessories for infants. Check out the collection on the next page!

Luftgekuhlt 2016: Porsches at Modernica

luft0.jpg

If there was any question that air-cooled Porsches are having a moment, today’s Luftgekuhlt (german for air-cooled) proved it without a doubt. Pulling into Vernon (the city’s crest says “Exclusively Industrial”) amongst the quiet empty warehouses on a Sunday morning, the streets are filled with Porsche coupes… parked all around the Modernica warehouse for blocks, and driving around hunting for parking. It seemed like a lot of Porsches outside the event… as soon as you step INSIDE, there are literally hundreds of them - gorgeous shiny curves in a rainbow of colors. And for every car there are about a dozen people and probably a dog and a toddler too. The crowd was HUGE! And beyond gawking at all the cars, getting to know the vintage porsche community (cars and porsche specialists came from around the country - and beyond!)… Modernica gave everyone free reign to wander the workshops and warehouses!

When Shawn first told me about the event - as soon as i heard Porsche and Modernica and Deus Ex Machina, and every Porsche fanatic we knew were coming together… AND limited edition products specially for the event… i was in. In the Dabs Myla building at the Modernica factory, there was a pop up shop filled with Porsche parts, limited edition Porsche/Modernica Eames Chairs, Deus Ex Machina t-shirts, posters being screen printed live, stunning products from Discommon Goods and more… This Luftgekuhlt is the third and largest event yet. All three have been in LA - can’t wait to see where they decide to hold it in 2017!

Take a peek at the experience and details on the next page!

Rumpl Down Puffy

rumplmain.jpg

Wow. The Rumpl Down Puffy is SO WARM. The kind folks at Rumpl sent one over last week, and taking it up to the Cowboy Cabin in Julian, CA was the perfect test! At a “trekking size” of 54”x80” (like a slightly short twin) with 600 fill duck down insulation - it weighs in at a mere 1.12 lbs. And it is WARM. I overheat curled up with it on the couch at home, but in the cold rainy mountain night in a 1940’s cabin… it was perfect! I ran around outside in a tank top wrapped in the down puffy and stayed cozy. I curled up in it as we got the fire going, and it felt SO good! And when we needed an extra layer on the bed at night - it warmed us up fast! Though being made of 200 Ripstop Nylon (like a sleeping bag) is it incredibly slippery, so we had to retrieve it from wherever it would slide off to in the night. We’ll be tossing the Rumpl Down Puffy in the car for future road trips and adventures for sure! Check out the pictures and unboxing on the next page!

Gift Guide: Beach Blankets & Towels

towels.jpg

Remember the importance of the Towel in Douglas Adam’s Hitchiker’s Guide to the Galaxy? “A towel, it says, is about the most massively useful thing an interstellar hitchhiker can have. Partly it has great practical value. You can wrap it around you for warmth as you bound across the cold moons of Jaglan Beta; you can lie on it on the brilliant marble-sanded beaches of Santraginus V, inhaling the heady sea vapours; you can sleep under it beneath the stars which shine so redly on the desert world of Kakrafoon; use it to sail a miniraft down the slow heavy River Moth; wet it for use in hand-to-hand-combat; wrap it round your head to ward off noxious fumes or avoid the gaze of the Ravenous Bugblatter Beast of Traal (such a mind-bogglingly stupid animal, it assumes that if you can’t see it, it can’t see you — daft as a brush, but very very ravenous); you can wave your towel in emergencies as a distress signal, and of course dry yourself off with it if it still seems to be clean enough.” It isn’t so different in every day life, is it?

In holiday shopping and researching ‘things to want’… i kept running into multi purpose, cozy towel/blankets that are ready for everything from laying on the beach, picnicking in the grass, drying off the dog, keeping cozy on the couch… and then some. While trying to decide whether i “needed” a big circular The Beach People beach towel or a cozy indoor/outdoor Rumpl Puffy blanket… i realized i have quite a few others i have and LOVE… so here’s a Beach Blankets/Towels Gift Guide! After all, if it’s snowy and wintry out where you are, they can keep you cozy or heated pool ready… or remind you of beach adventures to come. Or if the beach is your backyard and it’s nice (enough) out - grab one and go relax! Head to the next page to see my picks!

Knit Collection by Curver

knit0.jpg Here’s the latest from London-based editor and resident zoologist, Justine Aw as she explores London Design Week 2015!

Knitting has definitely been making a trendy comeback as of late… from knitting covered tree/street objects graffiti, to super chunky knit rugs, hipster knitting magazines and more… now you can even get chunky knit plastic - KNIT by Curver! A collection of useful products, from baskets and bags to pet homes, poufs, and more, which all utilize a method of deep-texture injection to apply a 3D knitted look to plastic. Their site explains that, “The innovation of the deep-texture injection method has been developed after the success of the rattan-look series, which upon its introduction five years ago, established the emotional plastic category by applying a woven look to outdoor furniture.”

Their unmissable designjunction installation in collaboration with FranklinTill spans the 5 story staircase as well as the press room, and is a colorful showcase of the KNIT by Curver collection. Take a look at the details on the next page!

Heath Ceramics Alabama Chanin Collection

heath1.jpg

I can’t stop staring at this Alabama Chanin Collection at Heath Ceramics - They describe it as “The point of intersection between stitch and clay. A collaboration between Natalie Chanin and Heath ceramics yields an anthology of carefully crafted modern heirlooms in a new and permanent dinnerware line.” They are too beautiful to eat off of. Too fragile to hang on the wall in case of an earthquake. Yet they make we wonder if its pieces like these people put on registries, to collect up those stunning pieces you can already imagine passing on generation to generation. The white Camellia etched serving pieces and dinner plate - wow. Maybe i’ll give in to just one dinner plate? Take a peek at the rest of the stunning collection and savor the details on the next page!

Cumbuca Chic Ceramics

cumbuca0.jpg Dove down an internet rabbit hole of small ceramic planters inspired by all the recent succulent propagating projects… and discovered Cumbuca Chic - the shop of ceramicist Priscilla Ramos out of São Paulo, Brazil! Her naturally inspired small ceramics pieces are adorable! There are CAPYBARAS! And ANTEATERS! As well as adorable foxes, and the cutest, tiniest birds on mini pots. But seriously, i didn’t even know i wanted (or could find) ceramic capybara planters… and now i can’t get them out of my head. She sells through her website and Cumbuca Chic Etsy Shop - and you get a peek behind the scenes on the Cumbuca Chic Facebook Page. I can’t wait to see more of the Sloth she’s working on.

Gateway Camping Gear + REI EVRGRN

evrgrn0.jpg

There’s GLAMPING (Glam-camping) and ATHLEISURE (Athletic looking leisure wear)… and there’s been a fascinating, growing space of what we’ve been referring to as GATEWAY CAMPING Gear… that bright, happy, playful, hipsterific, instagram-ready camping gear that transitions easily from apartment/patio to mountain top… it works just as well for a picnic/hike as it does for extra party seating… and it all folds right up to pop into your car or pack. Don’t get me wrong - i’m a fan. (In fact, my fascination with the space may be part of how Shawn convinced me into building the NOTFZJ Project!) It’s fun, colorful, and i love seeing more well designed, efficient, multipurpose products as well as more technical materials making their way into our everyday lives. It’s been mesmerizing to watch it all unfold! These are the products that are easier to justify to a “once in a while” camper - because you’ll probably end up using it at home and in the yard and it won’t look too out of place. It’s the perfect ‘off to college’ gift genre since it works for your dorm room and outdoor adventures.

If you’re still trying to picture the brands that embody this - think of Poler, Alite, Nomadix, and Rumpl - maybe even aspects of Snowpeak, Biolite, Treeline Outdoors, Best Made Co, and Camp Brand Goods. It is all about the lifestyle! The perfect lovely, tranquil, mosquito-free, lakeside, tree-surrounded campsite - curled up with your closest friends around the camp fire with no one else in sight… as the birds tweet around you and a gourmet meal is being prepared. You know - that ideal postcard/instagram moment! Where all is perfect with the world - and maybe you have cell signal/wifi and proper bathrooms nearby. Another example? That resurgence of enamelware mugs and more permeating our kitchens… as well as our camping kits.

I know, it may sound cynical, and i certainly don’t mean it that way - it has just been fascinating to watch the emergence of this Gateway Camping Gear that helps ease the transition from city kid to the outdoor adventurer - just like Glamping took camping to the luxurious extreme, and Athleisure made it ok to run around in workout clothes (without working out) - Gateway Camping Gear is helping made the slide from urban living into woods easier! And you’ll notice more and more traditional outdoor/adventure brands leaning towards less hardcore, more playful, lifestyle products to pull people in. The latest is definitely REI’s evrgrn collection (yes, fashionably named with arbitrary vowels dropped even). Take a peek on the next page at REI’s new evrgrn collection - it’s not hard to see where their inspiration comes from!

Woody Work In Progress

wip0.jpg Every now and then, you need to be your own client. And there’s nothing quite as mind clearing as manual labor… or as satisfying as making something you love and get to see and experience daily! So Shawn and i recently decided to set aside some time and energy and be our own clients working on a redwood gate and bench/top for our triangle that matches the fence we made! Somehow starting this all… also turned into reorganizing and sprucing up the garage shop (with the help of Bucky the trusty shop dog, of course!)… acquiring some new tools… and enjoying the jacaranda’s purple flowering season! Even as we started working on it all - it has quickly become our favorite spot to have coffee, relax, and grow a few new experiments! Take a peek at what we’ve been sharing on the NOTlabs Instagram on the next page!

Lotus Belle Tents + Assembly

tent0.jpg I haven’t been able to get these Lotus Belle Tents out of my head since i ran into one while exploring Mercado Sagrado. They feel part “normal” tent + part yurt + part awesome inflatable structure looking shape… that all fits in a duffle bag (or two! depending on size) - and it’s SO spacious! They come in 16ft and 13ft sizes - and “The 16ft Lotus is 56% bigger in size than the 13ft and fits everything but the kitchen sink!”

Of course the part that was intriguing me next - HOW do you assemble it? And of course they have an adorable instructional video… and the cutest hand drawn pdf instructions! It’s also surprisingly simple to assemble, even alone (though i’m sure help would speed things along nicely.) Basically you lay the waterproof floor down, pop the walls up, pop the roof up, poke the pole up to hold the center up, and velcro wall and roof together… and you’re done! Depending on your needs, they have a few variations - adding various doors, screens, and other luxuries. Take a peek at it all on the next page - i’m so tempted to pop one up in the yard, or for our next adventure!
