Making Modern Your Own

Eric at Modern Self has just posted a great story about incorporating an unusual family heirloom in to a lovely, modern, minimal design.

He took a cross-section of a tree trunk that belonged to his grandfather and created a piece that works beautifully with his existing decor while lending personality and history to the space.

That's funny. They have some really cool projects on their site. I like the wall pattern they did using painter's tape.

tessa,

Yeah what a small internet. Did you know us in High School or did you just find out we went to the same school?
