It is not often when browsing through Google street view that you come across anything of real beauty but Aaron Hobson has found some rare examples of what the Google car cam has caught while traveling around the world. It is incredible what you can find nowadays on the internet.
These simple & modern wooden toys were created by the Norwegian designers at Permafrost for the New Nordic exhibition at the Louisiana Museum of Modern Art (actually in Denmark, not the U.S. state of Louisiana). The toys depict modern day industrial icons while at the same time honoring traditional Nordic craftsmanship. Love!
With five kids under 10, this Brooklyn couple wanted to create an urban version of their own Santa Cruz childhood experience. They combined three apartments, turning a second kitchen into a crafts room and a spare bedroom into a full-size playhouse.
They enlisted the help of the architects at Incorporated to tackle the ten-month renovation. The results speak for themselves!
The two sisters share this park-inspired bedroom, complete with a funky Pirelli rubber floor.
The closet in the girls’ bedroom was converted into a playhouse for the two sisters.
In the boys’ room, a plywood playhouse doubles as bunk beds for the two boys, complete with climbing wall and chalkboard. Two spare bunks were added to accommodate sleepovers.
An indoor tree house fills what was once a spare bedroom. Cole & Son’s Woods Wallpaper adds an outdoorsy feel to the space.
I totally love this blue piano in the living room. The children’s artwork is proudly displayed above it on matching blue shelves.

The following pictures are definitely made for bath lovers, including myself. I will light some candles, have a glas of white wine and be in my hot water bath for hours relaxing and just not doing anything. I love extraordinary designs and these tubs are amazing!
This sunken tub is lined up perfectly at the same level as an exterior pool of water. The window opens all the way so it looks like a single pool. This would be so peaceful and is absolutely lovely.
If sinking down in hot water up to your chin is for you, then a soaking tub might be just the thing. You can get a beautiful one like this made from wood …
The same tub looks great with a dark interior color and placed in this rustic bathroom. I think this would be the perfect look for a modern house in the country.
On the opposite end of the spectrum is a granite bathtub. These can weigh more than 2,000 pounds. With the surface polished on the inside and hand chiseled on the outside, they give a tactile experience unlike any other material.
Concrete is one more material to consider for a modern bathtub. Since it can be poured and molded into any shape, the possibilities are endless.
I bet you thought I was going to leave out clawfoot tubs entirely, but this beauty has a contemporary flair with its pretty chrome feet.
Well you’ll have to pardon me, but my tub has just about filled. Time to pour myself a glass of bubbly and enjoy bathtub bliss!
