Still a piece of my heart

Posted in Uncategorized by stylecouch on December 30, 2009

I left a piece of my heart in Antwerp already years ago and when I stumbled on these photos it just confirmed me that this city is loaded with fabulous design, inspiration and amazingly good taste – from my point of you! I am now dreaming myself into this wonderful house . The two founders of CSD Architecten,Britt Crepain & Stefan Spaens build this house for themselves in a narrow street in the Center of Antwerp, Belgium. In the designing and construction process, they focused on materials as natural as possible in colors flowing into each other. The inspiration for the color pallet was found on a beach in France (driftwood, pebbles, the color of the sand). Honestly, I felt a slightly jealousy…

A Burberry Burger with Gucci French Fries and than a McSunday by Paul Smith?

Posted in Advertisement, Art, Fashion, Photography by stylecouch on December 28, 2009

The Cool Hunter has enlisted Access Agency to implement the McFancy concept, which TCH describes “an upmarket temporary McDonald’s store that launches at Fashion Weeks around the globe such as London, New York, Paris, Milan, Sydney and Hong Kong.” In the business of fashion, the minute you put a designer label on a piece of cloth, the price goes up. I wonder in the restaurant business how much a Burberry-wrapped piece of meat will cost. For all ofof you loves McDonald food as well as you are may be a logo maniac, the restaurant dining room experience coming during Fashion Week 2010 to a big city near you.

Art you can do out of pencil!

Posted in Art, Fashion, Graphic design, Sketches by stylecouch on December 15, 2009

John-Paul Thurlow, artist and magazine cover graphic designer, is recasting his favorite covers with a bit of paper and a pencil. His blog ‘Covers‘ is a hommage to the creative men and women who produce such disposable perfection – in his words: “With each Cover I take a perfect mass-produced object and turn it into a fucked up one-off. Don’t expect perfection here, that’s not the way I see beauty in the world.” In 2010 he is also planing a limited edition book, which should be already on the wishlist of all graphic design lovers.

IPHONE ART

Posted in Uncategorized by stylecouch on December 14, 2009

There is no reason for wasting time in waiting rooms anymore as you can just be creative with your iphone. As I tried to paint on my iphone and realized how dificult it is I must say that I am relly impressed on these amazing small artworks created on canvas alias the iphone screen. Susan Murtaugh seems to be one of the leaders within this field – creating paintings with the ‘brushes’ tool for the touch screen. Also Italy has got a talent, Matthew Watkins spent just minutes to finish his work while he was waiting  for a dental appointment. Download ‘brushes’ and live out your inner artist…
