Catalog Living Thanks

Here at Within we REALLY love to read Catalog Living. Have you read it yet?
It's fantastic!!! WE are constantly rolling laughing. Genius!
Have you ever wondered what it's like to live in West Elm catalog? or Pottery Barn? or Crate & Barrel? well... Catalog Living is your answer!

Catalog Living is the creation of Molly Erdman, a Los Angeles-based actor, writer, and comedian.

So, as a thank you to Molly and her fabulous thoughts...here are 3 pics that we found on the back of our Formica samples... we would LOVE it for Molly to come up with something fantastic for these 3.

Hello Friends!

Last year we won a fantastic Mini-Bathroom Makeover from our friends at DECOLAV!

These are the photos that we posted on Decolav's Facebook page.

We only did the bare minimum to this bathroom to keep budget nice and tight.
Phase I complete!
Have a fantastic Monday all!!

~ Supporting the Locals ~

Last week We needed Inspiration...so we decided to close the office for the day and stroll around Downtown ....

We ended up on the other side of the bridge on 4th Ave..and stopped in at this fabulous little shop called PopCycle!

"Recycled, upcycled, green& sustainable gifts, accessories, apparel, & furniture"

We fell in Love! So many things to look at... So many great ideas...

Our heart fell to a leather band with flowers... for under $20 it was ours.

It had been recycled from an old belt. Voila! our wrist looks great!

Here we show off our new little accent piece!

You can reach PopCycle: popcycleshop@hotmail.com

Their website is HERE.

and DDco Design too!

or via phone 520-622-3297

{Loewenstein Mod}

This is the Stryde Collection by Loewenstein.
So clean.
So modern.
We had to share.

The Stryde Collection, designed by Michael Wolk, is reminiscent of popular international lounge chairs from the mid-20th-century. Characterized by clean, simple design, Stryde’s interesting angles and mix of wood and upholstery give it a classic style. A gradual tapering seat, streamlined silhouette and solid Black American Walnut legs create the perfect modern lounging experience. Oak and Beech woods are also available for individual modern tastes.

Tuesday is for Quino

Within Studio LOVES cartoons...and THIS is our favorite!

I'm sure you can guess why......

We are not sure if we've shared this image on our blog yet...maybe we have...
but we were in the mood to share it again!
This is one of our most favorite artists!!!
Juaquin Salvador Lavado, better known by his pen name Quino.
He is an Argentine cartoonist.
Quino's strips and cartoons feature non talking animals or animated toys.
His main characters are ordinary people with ordinary feelings.
If the situations are often surreal or allegorical, the personalities
are reactions are very real and familiar.... only magnified to caricatural proportions.
Thank you Quino for so many years of Amazing Art!!!
Happy Tuesday All!!!
Hope you see the beauty and art in everything today!
