Well, knock on wood but the weather is officially warmer outside than inside and it that could mean one of two things: spring -or- the earth has fallen deeper into the sun’s gravity well and we’re about to burn up in a cataclysmic disaster.
In either case, time to enjoy a nice, refreshingly cool beverage and frolic in a pool at our leisure.
As always with the scrapbooks, it’s drawn from my central library of inspiring images and unfortunately a few are missing sources. Send me a message if you know and I’ll happily update.
02: How could I not remember the name of this one? It’s was everywhere for a few months.
03: The Pharrell Williams’ pool
04: Some Tumblr, based on the file name. Sorry!

I apologize for the lack of sources in this post; it’s mostly old stuff which was before I started recording where I got things from. If you know the source / are the source please let me know so I can credit you!
In other news, I beat Portal 2 in almost one sitting; about six hours. This marks the record for longest time ever playing one game continuously and also buying and beating a game in less than 24 hours from it’s release date. I don’t even buy games until they’re in the clearout bin usually (some of the best games I’ve ever bought were $10) so actually, this also marks my first pre-ordered game.
I won’t give away the ending, but overall I declare it a worthy sequel. This is great news because I was really worried that the first’s cult-hit status would be hard to compete with. The only thing that wasn’t as good as the first was the credit song, which, to be fair, would a really, really hard act to follow. The co-op is really cool too, having four portals to work with makes it both much easier and much harder. The puzzles would become crazy, but I could see potential for third and fourth players in there.

I can’t figure out if those two are the same room. They look remarkably similar, yet different in the details. Unfortunately I’ve long since forgotten the sources (if you know please, let me credit!) so I can’t check the house / architect names. From the photos above I’ve deduced this list:
What I need to be happy:
- Eames Lounge
- Spiral Staircases
- Wood flooring with concrete and glass
- Time to enjoy it all.

I’m not a huge fan of the interior. I love concrete, it’s true. But it needs more contrast with something; an interior wood or some softer surface would break it up better.

And maybe some trees would be nice…

Lazy on my part, I know: all via Abduzeedo by architect Miller Hull.
I’m a sucker for anything wood, concrete and glass.
