Tetris kitchen

Ive written about Tetris home geekery before (here and here) but I think Ive finally found the ultimate in Tetris domestic goodness. Behold….

Tetris Kitchen

Maybe this has been posted around the net before so pardon me if this is a late pass..but its new to me! Besides, something this awesome needs reposting. Inspired by the classic shapes of Tetris and the need for efficient clean space, designer June He created this geometric masterpiece. The kitchen is basically transformed into a jewelry box in which all the pieces pull out into place and hide away so it looks like a sleek tile wall when not in use.

The tiles could also be changed color wise to reflect whatever scheme you would like. I for one and such a fan of this because living in an urban area like San Francisco, space becomes a luxury…yet at the same time I am unwilling to give up a large kitchen in order to obtain more living room space. This design allows for both kitchen space and open room all with an effortlessly cool and minimalist appeal. Unfortunately this design is still in prototype, but when I hit the lottery and built my dream flat, you can bet my kitchen will look like this.

Feast like the President!

I hope you checked out Katies post about Inaguration Day recipes and drinks for an awesome way to ring in our bright shinny new president. If youre still looking for more ways to celebrate the day, why not eat what Obama and 200 guests ate at the Inauguration Luncheon today? I dug up the menu and recipes for their fabulous feast and thought I would share them with you all!

The Inaugural Luncheon began in 1897 when the Senate Committee on Arrangements gave President McKinley and several guests a luncheon, although the current form of the Inaugural Luncheon did not begin until 1953. The food typically reflects the home states of the new President and Vice President.

The first course was a Seafood Stew filled with Maine Lobster and scallops. It was paired with a Buckhorn Vineyards 2007 Sauvignon Blanc.

The second course was A Brace of American Birds (pheasant and duck) served with Sour Cherry Chutney and Molasses Sweet Potatoes. It was paired with a Goldeneye 2005 Pinot Noir.

The third and final course was a classic Apple Cinnamon Sponge Cake with Sweet Cream Clace and it was paired with Korbel Natural’s “Special Inaugural Cuvee” (a California Champagne).

The recipes for all the courses are available as a download from senate.gov, click this link to download the pdf.

Happy Obama Feast!

Orla Kiely coming to a Target near you!

first of all, i love Orla Kiely.  she’s classic, bold, and girlie!  all of these products will be hitting the shelves of Target the first week of February!

secondly, i love Target!  everytime i near that bullseye logo, my heart races, and i get butterflies in my stomach.  like a kinda obsessive crush in middle school, i love me some Target.  living in downtown SF, where Corporate America has been banned by this liberal city, i have no way to calm my addiction.  the online store doesn’t give you the same satisfaction of walking into that huge red warehouse.  my favorite are the Super Targets, where you can get everything you need and more!  originally from Minnesota, where Target originated, i have been a dedicated fan all my life.

Things I like but will never be able to buy

I was trolling around Generate Design pining and drooling over their home decor products so I thought I would share some of the most ridiculously awesome and ridiculously expensive products.

Ghost Tree Coat Rack

This is one of the most organic subtlety beautiful coat racks Ive ever seen. Its also has one of the most ridiculous price tags Ive ever seen at $1,999.00! I think I’ll save my money and chop down a birch tree instead.

Easy Chair

Remember those awesome stacking chairs we all use as school children? Yeah those were uncomfortable but totally sweet. Now imagine them in a rainbow of awesome colors….and priced at $549.00 each. I’ll stick to my fond memories thank you.

Index Chopping Board

Not only is this a chic and gorgeous design, but its incredibly practical and good sanitation! Chopping boards can easily soak up juices especially raw meat juice and no matter how much you wash you often can’t fully remove it. This product puts an end to nasty juice cross contamination…but for a hefty price of $79.00.

Tab A/B

I dont even smoke and I want this! Hell I’ll let my smoker friends smoke in my house just because this is the most gorgeous ash tray Ive ever seen! But design comes with a price….this one happens to be $89.00.

LTB Illuminated Sink

I’ve always wanted to rave in my bathroom….but I’ll have to stick with dumping glowsticks down the sink since Im not ready to drop $249.00 to rave on.

Play Table

This coffee table is basically one big slide puzzle with the empty space revealing one of 6 storage areas. Awesome in so many ways…but I wont be storing any money in this thing since it retails at $7,599.00.

I could go on for hours about the gorgeous ridiculously expensive things that I will never purchase from this site…but I have work to do and presents to wrap!

Snack and Stack lego-like utensils!

Anyone who knows me and this blog knows that I love anything which is a throwback to 80s culture and toys. So when I went to Perpetual Kid this morning and saw their latest item, I just about jumped out of my seat!

Snack and Stack Utensils!

Taking a hint from everyones favorite toy, Legos, this set of fork, spoon and knife can snap together and come apart perfect for….well stacking and snacking! They are very reasonably priced at only $16.99 + S&H.
