We came across this fabulous Etsy shop thanks to their featured shops section & we soo had to share! We’re loving how although super rustic, the pieces have a sleek mid-century, modern look, great for someone looking to add a touch of trendy to their home but without going overboard! Jeff Libby of Birdloft doesn’t just use any slab of wood, however. Located in Tacoma, Washington, he specifically searches out tired out wood, pieces that have survived the elements for sometimes over hundreds of years. Doing this sometimes means having “weird conversations with secretive old men” around town but finding unique pieces is an “important part of [his] process”.
While you can most likely find similar pieces via other commercial outlets, sometimes purchasing something handcrafted by a small business, knowing the craftsmanship that goes into each creation, can add sentimental value & one of kind appreciativeness. (more…)

So, we came across the crazy Delfin-Postigo House in Madrid via Yellowtrace & had to share. David Delfin, a fashion designer & Gorka Posigo, once architect & now photographer recently showed off their home & there’s no doubt that their taste for unique artwork is the stand out feature of the home. Between the mix of the surrounding modern white structure & the rustic decor lies some of the strangest most intriguing artwork!! The creepy disfigured baby heads, the [I can't breathe / I'm dying] face canvas right below or the rope/noose hanging over the bed? So Strange!! However, within all the creepiness you can’t help but think why it was picked & what it means to them!? And, we can’t be completely weirded out by the baby heads.. I recently added some to my shelving & they’re pretty badass!! Keep up with more of my Instagrams @annerue
P.S. That collection of Pez is completely awesome.
