Creative Homes: Kat Heyes

Bumped into an amazing blog in the middle of my daily routine brainstorming for collecting ideas on work (as always), and found one of their posts which shared some pics taken from the home of Illustrator Kat Heyes. Beautiful.

Cupcakes Crave

I tweeted my wishlist this morning, saying:
I want cupcake towers on my wedding #wishlist #serius

I have been wanting cupcakes, and won't stop imagining having towers of lovely and yummy cupcakes on my wedding day (don't ask when yet, we're working on it). Some of my followers (including you, maybe) perhaps wondered what triggered my cravings for cupcakes on my most important day of my life that is coming (not too soon, actually). Well, this is why:

DC Cupcakes is an American reality television series which follows sisters and business partners Sophie LaMontagne and Katherine Kallinis as they run Georgetown Cupcake, a small cupcakery located in Washington, D.C..
I have been watching this show every week lately and always adore those little yummy cupcakes, and kept on wishing for them. I mean, don't you think that these lovely yummy cupcakes are just.....delightfull?

I can imagine having a perfect and beautiful day with them around us and our guests.

Interior Inspiration: Children Study Spaces

I have been working on interior projects lately and some of them involves on children bedrooms and playhouses. And since I rarely ever had such experience on working for children before, I needed a little extra brainstroming on collecting any ideas that might help. After collecting some inspirations that actually helped me on my work, I decided to share some of them. 
These photos aren't my work but they are my main inspirations on the project. So let me share them to you while adding some tips (well, consider this being my diary so this post would also be my personal notes that might help - not only for the readers but also for myself in the future).

Colors. Children and teenagers tend to have some fresh and colorful which can make them more energetic in doing their activities. Add colorful furniture or decorations in their room to create more spirit and happy feeling. The impact of fresh and colorful view in the room can motivate them to study and do other positive activities.

Walls and corners. Children and teenagers can get distracted easily. Creating their private space by facing the walls or the corners of the room might help them have the privacy they needed to concentrate on studying. But remember to give enough lighting on the study space so the child's eye won't get exhausted too quickly by forcing themselves to study and read in the dark or having less light.
Or you could just place the study desk right under the window. The fresh light are healthy and safe for children's eyes and the view they can get from looking out the window could help them get rid of their boredom of facing books all the time.

Motivations. Placing pictures or motivating texts could help create more spirit for the children to study more. And also can motivate them to be creative on their activities.

Lights. Again, lighting is important. Make sure the room have enough lighting for the comfort of the eyes when they are doing their activities. Or just place the study desk right where the room's lighting is most appropriate for studying or doing activites.

NIKICIO: MIXTE Vol.06 “Untitled” Preview

“The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams.” 
- Eleanor Roosevelt

There is neither definite beginning nor an ending to a dream. No matter precise or blurry fragments of mementos; NIKICIO presents MIXTE Vol: 06-Untitled. An all black ensemble of 28 designs incorporating varieties of textures from knitwear to nappa leather, from organdy to tencel, the collection evokes what NIKICIO stands from day one; a premium surrealist. Inspired by the “Inception” movie application found in iPod touch, the trip takes one to be in a limbo; a state of static but knowing everything is revolving. The unisex collection spoke of dreams realized in designs; tank tops in the collection feature double layers, which represent the illusory qualities of dreams. The collection also features a limited rectangular acrylic-made transparent clutch. Standing on the primary concept grounds that MIXTE is a collection that banishes barriers that fashion should not be defined by gender or a season, the Untitled collection brings its own perception of the future; black, undefined, beautiful.

A full length series of NIKICIO video campaign will be up and running at their website: by April 20th, 2011. The collection will be launched first during 4 days event at Brightspot Market, Jakarta, Indonesia, starting 28 April 2011.
