I love grey...


I've just been going through the new posts on my reader and once again ooh-ed and aah-ed at the gorgeous finds from Michelle at Blue Moss.... have you discovered her wonderful blog yet? She is a super talented jewellery maker... She up-cycles the most divine tanks and Tees... AND does a fashion-find round-up which is uber-inspirational. Above is one of Michelle's latest finds. Isn't it just divine? Love grey and wish I had a staircase! Michelle originally uploaded this pic from here.

Okay, so now I'm on a grey theme! Michelle's gorgeous post reminded me of one I've had for a while now, waiting patiently for me in my pending folder... Solid Poetry and Liquid Affection is the graduation project of Susanne Happle and Frederick Molenschot. They are concrete tiles that react to water - an image appears when they are wet and disappears again as they dry! So very cool. I'm thinking of the bathroom after my youngest has been showering... the trail of water to her bedroom... Can you imagine if that trail became a beautiful pattern just where she's stepped? Maybe this is a dangerous thing after all... my child would never learn if I was staring dreamily at her mess! ;)

I love grey, we're doing up our house in whites and greys. All of this is absolutely gorgeous - the top staircase and the project. I'm very inspired!

The stairs are the most beautiful I have ever seen this idea could be used everywhere. The patterns on the concrete, a fantastic invention just think how the world could be brightened up with these two ideas especially those awful concrete car park staircases.

That is way too brilliant...love this idea. Yep, grey is my very favourite. I love it in clothes, different shades of it thrown in with spalshes of colour.
