And Now for Something Different - Kate Jenkins Knitted Room!!!

And Now for Something Different – Kate Jenkins Knitted Room!!!

We know that it is a very British thing to drone on and on about the weather, but it is colder than a Oedipus up in this female canine *yeesh*, what do you mean that doesn’t make sense? – you know exactly what we are saying in that sentence, it is just that Mother Beyond reads the blog in the library and her little sweet face crumpling over our use of naughty invectives is more than our hearts can bear.  So, today is build your own curse word day on Beyond Beyond.

Now on a day as cold as this we all need a little snugly, and little cosiness and we saw this while we were freezing our ta-tas off on the train, and we thought awwwww.  All we need is a boy (a very slim one at that because it is a single) and we could be all warm and cosy, in the cutest, craftiest, knottiest little hotel room in the whole widey world as knitted by the incredibly talented Kate Jenkins.

So, on a cold morning go ahead and be as snug, as a bug, in a woollen hewn rug wethinks a schlep down to Brighton to experience this in the Pelirocco Hotel, Brighton is in order.   Or we need us a replica – really – how sweet is this?

We should be happy; Sunday should have set us up for a bomb ass week. We meandered through the Tate Modern to check out Tacita Dean, wandered along Southbank, sank some caramel macchiatos, and wrapped it up with Dinner at Jamie’s with a friend from Hong Kong who was rocking glasses sans lenses.  The only thing we needed was a moleskin and a Holga camera and we would have chalked up 100 out of 100 on the pretentious hipster list (bonus points if we had gone to East Village).

So, this morning in a need to let our hipster overflow into the sweetness of Monday we put on a band who are so obscure and cool,  that we killed them, and used their bodies to make jerky.  So, while swinging our legs (and munching hipster band jerky) at our desk we thought we’d meander the interweb, and happiness was found for a while until we found this.

One plus One should be a design company, but in player hater algebraic formula it equals bile spewing, and wrath.  *shakes fist clenching a flat white from an independent coffee store that is really cool and we don’t want to share as we’d have to kill you*.  One plus One design we hate you a pox on you and your design house.  P.S We hate your shop too!

Normally, design envy is about the wedding pretties, but instead of hating on the paper porn merchants of the wedding industry. Today, is going a little off tangent and just enjoying graphics for the sake of them being graphiccy awesomness – although our little design brains tell us that there is some wedding related idea that is bubbling way in the animated awesomeness.

In any case, enjoy some awesomeness from Mr Whaite – yeah it’s off topic, but that’s the way we like it.  Normal wedding related service will resume in a wee while.  Time for you to enjoy the visual equivalent of a booty slap – let’s get it on in a visual sense!
