As part of the Inbox Detox regimen, I’ve started using Google Reader for all my blog subscriptions. It’s amazing! I love how it streamlines everything into one place and I no longer need a zillion scattered bookmarked pages in my web browser. It not only gives you a quick way to scan recent activity and be more selective of what you want to spend your time reading, it saves you from having to visit sites just to check for updates. Which, of course, buys you more time to read other useless information you wouldn’t otherwise have come across.
In this case, it was time well-spent as I found a very cool blog called Mod Nest. In a recent post, the author shares her love for designer Nika Zupanc, an industrial designer turned product designer.
Here’s what I’m thinking…buy a post-modern armoire (with those funky pirate-post-leg feet) and chop it at the top. Take the doors off, smooth out the front, paint with black lacquer, add some custom cushions, and voila! Easy, right?! Riiiigggghht.
PS. It was time for a facelift on Domestica. I hope you enjoy the new look. If only our own faces were this easy to upgrade.
