Taste According To John Ruskin

“Taste is not only a part and index of morality, it is the only morality. The first, and last, and closest trial question to any living creature is "What do you like?" Tell me what you like, I'll tell you what you are” John Ruskin.

Do you think this opinion is true ?

Silly Questions Clients Ask

Phone rings, yet again, on a BUSY day

Client “Hi Jimmy”

Me “Hi Mr. X”

Client “The guys are installing and I just wanted to ask, do we plug the table lamp to the socket on the left or the socket on the right”

My Mind “You can plug it in your  #$%#$%*&$#, that’s how it will really light up”

Me “The one on the left please”

Client “Thank you” with a smile in the voice “you’re a lifesaver”

Yup, that is what I am

Looks Are Deceiving

A house once occupied by the communist party founder is now home to a new nightclub in Mexico City. As much as I loved the dark and sexy interior, I think the catch is in the contrast between the unaltered exterior and the layered and textured interior.

Crazy Hair


The Xuan Lamp designed by Innovo, made out of bamboo apparently. At first glance I thought Don King had dyed his hair green

On The Subject Of Dead Trees


Discovered artist Hugo Franka today. He only uses dead trees, but, he makes art out of them

Dead Trees Decoration

Lately I have been seeing, on a lot of blogs, dead trees being hung on walls as decorations. Now, don't get me wrong, for some reason I always liked dead trees. I always thought that the shapes and the colors of dead wood has a lot of artistic value in it. But would you hang it instead of art ? what do you think ?

Sometimes you see a photo that is not exactly your taste, or not exactly what you would do, but, nonetheless, you fall in love with it. This is one of them, maybe it is that painting or the shapes in it along with the floor ?
