2009 Voyageur GS Women's
Find it Here

Stylish, environmentally friendly, with GEARS. I am lusting over this bike. But at $399.99 USD, I am smack out of luck. Plus how could I ever leave this anywhere? Lock up my baby? No, it's coming in with me. (I wonder how my work would feel about this.)

Wednesday Inspiration

Who doesn't follow The Sartorialist? This morning as I'm back at work and trying to catch up on both my actual work as well as my favourite blogs when I was stopped in my tracks by these two images. In many ways both are very simple. Neutral colours. But so well done. I also have the greatest respect for a man who knows when not to wear socks.

Charles Gwathmey, Architect

Dunway Apartment, NYC, 1969

Astor Place Condominiums, NYC, 2005

de Menil Residence, East Hampton, NY, 1983

Architect Charles Gwathmey has passed away yesterday, and although I cannot claim to have always followed him (because that would be a lie, and it's not a good idea to lie, especially in print), I was impressed by his style immediately. So called modern architecture can so often leave me uninspired. I find it sometimes lacking in beauty and heart. Not this man however. I love the use of glass and light. Above are a few of my favourites. While it is grey and rainy outside this is my beauty for the day.

For more information on Charles: An article from the New York Times.

All of the pictures are from the Gwathmey Siegel website. Lots of great stuff here.
