Very Margeliaeqsue, all white, sterile, drapes, trompe-loeil wallpapers and custom furniture, the hotel Maison Champs-Elysées commissioned Maison Martin Margiela to redesign, redecorate and reconcieve the hotel. Well not the entire hotel, but a big part of it. The very first hotel collaboration for the fashion house. MMM redecorates the suites, restaurant, smoking room, bar and reception area into a surreal atmosphere.
I have this love/hate relationship with school. I dont love sitting in classrooms, but I dont seem to be able to stop myself from going back. After my undergrad I took a few years off and then went back on nights and weekends for my MBA, after that I took a few years off and then went back on evenings for my builders license, and since Im in a school-downswing right now, I dont like using the s word in case my brain gets any funny ideas about needing some other kind of degree.
If those ideas should occur, however, at least Ill have more room to spread out in the not-study. The unstudy. The slacker room. I like that term, I think we should rename this one: Slacker Room.
Because of that awesome door, this may be the hardest room in the house to take pictures of.
Hilaire was in New York City recently attending BlogFest 2011, where she spotted Eileen Kathryn Boyd promoting her new custom lamp line, Mottega. This lamp line is great!

Is there really any difference between cordless tool batteries? That’s the question I set out to answer with my own test to verify tall claims being made right now by one major power tool manufacturer. The company is Milwaukee, and they say that their RedLithium batteries offer much longer run time than any other battery, including their own previous generation of lithium-ion batteries. RedLithium is also supposed to deliver more tool power, even with the same battery voltage. Results from my own gruelling, backwoods test surprised me, and to see the action and results for yourself, check out my video at http://bit.ly/battery-endurance
One of my regular readers, Architect Joseph Sandy, recently submitted a design to the The $300 House Open Design Challenge. It uses CEBs (compressed earth blocks) for the lower portion of the walls and a light wood frame for the upper walls and roof – leveraging the best of both building methods. The roof would be covered with corrugated metal.
CEBs are made in a press – think giant garlic press without the holds. A earthen mixture is placed in the chamber and then using a giant lever the earth is compressed into a block. Below is a short video that demonstrates how CEBs are made.
There are just a few days left in this design competition… take a closer look at Joseph’s design. If you like his approach, be sure to vote. Thanks!<
