A Milestone

On Friday, March 21, I reached 2000 Pinterest followers! This is pretty funny because I have done A LOT of pinning to get this far over the past...couple of years. Gaining followers is not the point of my pinning, to be clear. But it is amusing to see a celebrity like Sanaa Lathan signup one day and have 2000 followers the next when you've been at it consistently for so long. 

So here's to the insomniacs, fashion enthusiasts, geeks, film buffs, graphic designers and photographers who keep it so lively! To the continuing collision of all our (PG-rated) interests!

Rooms on Film: The Bourne Legacy

This action flick is a lot of fun! Tense, exciting, covers lots of climates and locales. As is typical of a Bourne film, everyone was dead serious. There isn't much room for comic relief. If someone smiles before the last five minutes of the film, they probably don't mean it. By far, the most arresting interior location was this rural Virginia mansion owned by Dr. Marta Shearing (Rachel Weisz). Still very firmly in fixer-upper status, this house was completely breathtaking. From this wonderful oval staircase to the worn gray exterior, it was a marvel of great bones and light. The abundant potential was evident in every shot.

Brace yourself, this ends in flames.

Viva Print Media: New Domino Out Now

second quarterly issue now available

Look what I found at the supermarket the other day. It includes a few homes I quite like the look of... This business of Scandinavian color schemes that balance spare pops of color with white bases is definitely not my thing. But I do appreciate it and enjoy better examples of the style.
