i love :: found in the post

As an experiment, a number of pre-stamped, pre-addressed postcards have been ‘lost’ in public spaces. Relying on the good will of whoever finds the postcards, the idea is to count how many make it to their destination. When a ‘lost’ postcard reaches its destination, it will appear on the Found in the Post website along with its message. Sometimes the postcards arrive with new messages or a note as to where they found the card.

i love :: Piet Hein Eek

I came across these beautiful scrap wood wallpaper rolls by Dutch designer Piet Hein Eek at a local interior design shop here in London. Imitating real planks of unique scrap wood on paper in no particular pattern, these would look amazing in the right home. They come in six different types and are fully washable with a soft cloth. See all 6 designs here. You can also find on their site.

own label by sainsbury

Usually, people snub their noses at no name or own label brands (Rob’s mom used to buy no name cereal and pour it into brand name boxes), but I am loving this collection of vintage Sainsbury‘s packaging. The new book, Sainsburys Design Studio, celebrates the shift when Peter Dixon joined their design studio and revotuionized their own line: simple, stripped down, creative, and completely different from what they had done before. Could you imagine if they brought these designs back? Pretty!
