A more masculine living space- Part 3

In the last two posts I covered living room furniture and lighting here and here.   In this post I will cover the dining area which is often seen as anywhere space is available. The reality is that eating should be something looked upon as a major part of healthy lifestyle. Its hard to have a healthy… Read More →

A more masculine living space- Part 2

I began this task in the living room with what I think are the three most important items; The sofa, chairs and a cocktail or coffee table. Here I will talk a bit about lighting.   Lighting is what sets the mood, and I say this first even above being able to see. A candle is the… Read More →

Grad Project: Part 6- Refinement

It’s no surprise that when it comes to storage, motorcycles are not exactly the most convenient. They are small and require a certain amount of balance and strength to operate.

Swedish Girls

For some reason as a kid growing up in North America, Swedish girls carried some sort of mystical property. Thinking back it might have something to do with an inside joke that rolled around Hollywood and made its way out into the general public. I know that on more than one occasion I dropped the whole “Hot… Read More →
