Here is another really cool pattern to enjoy this week. This one is a limited edition handmade designed wallpaper called TOPO AZUL by Barcelona-based creative studio Alan, The Gallant. You can see more patterns from the Pattern Tales series here.

I'm really digging this print by Dan Funderburgh called 'Gravity's Rainbow'. The print is available on the I Am Still Alive website.

This pattern is especially neat because when you look up close at the details, you notice the knives, scissors, etc.

Dan has another print for sale on the same site, called 'Census' in which all proceeds will go to the Obama campaign.

Today I am really loving this photo from a pumpkin carving feature Country Living has done. The pattern on the pumpkin is cool, but it is the styling and colors of the photo that I am really drawn to. Check out some of the other pumpkin design ideas they feature here.

Oh, and here's a little tip that they suggest:

"To keep the exposed flesh fresh-looking before a party, rub a coating of Vaseline over it, then wipe it off before the event."

Pierre Andre

A few weeks ago my boyfriend sent me a link to a set of photos from the house of Etnies founder, Pierre André Senizergues. (If you are not familiar, Etnies is a shoe & apparel company primarily for skateboarders.) The photos, taken by Don Bartletti, were featured in LA Times' Home & Garden section. All the color and patterns are a little zany, but then again, I love color and patterns.

Pierre Andre

I did a little more research and I noticed that LA Times aren't the only ones that have featured Pierre André's home. In May 2007, the Orange County Register also did a feature on his design aesthetic and style; 'A House with Sole' is what they called it. In this article he sites back to his Catalan roots as influence in this space, which can be clearly seen with his choice in colors and the abundance of mosaics all over the place.

"I think design is like an art piece, and art is inspiring. It makes you think differently. Just like in Paris, when you see all the buildings lit beautifully. Visual enjoyment in life is important."

You can see more photos from Newport Beach house here.
