Just Awesomeness.

…or a Filson’s Navy Duffle.  Kinda want it for the many short trips I’m taking soon where all I’ll need is a carry on.  Hopefully one of them will actually involve a seaplane.

Love these backpacks!  Can’t decide between that… and the complete opposite…

Okay so two notes: 1) I like large living spaces, but cozy bedrooms, and 2) I like complex houses.  This usually means that I like gargantuan houses, like this one.  I would kill to see the blueprints for this house.  I love all the walk ways, staircases, and that the whole house basically sits on a parking garage platform.  That’s another requirement.  Why waste space above ground with a 12 door garage when you could have a subterranean garage with a single door?  This makes sense even for regular houses.

I love this atmosphere of this space. Especially the ceiling, bar area, and exposed concrete.

Starbucks is testing a new store concept that sounds like a radical departure from the latte version you visit here in the United States.

Located in the former vault of a historic bank on Rembrandtplein, the new shop will be a showcase for sustainable interior design and slow coffee brewing, with small-batch reserve coffees and Europe’s first-ever Clover, a high-end machine that brews one cup at a time. But the most radical departure is in the aesthetic: the multilevel space is awash in recycled and local materials; walls are lined with antique Delft tiles, bicycle inner tubes, and wooden gingerbread molds; repurposed Dutch oak was used to make benches, tables, and the undulating ceiling relief consisting of 1,876 pieces of individually sawn blocks. The Dutch-born Liz Muller, Starbucks concept design director, commissioned more than 35 artists and craftsmen to add their quirky touches to the 4,500-square-foot space.
