Branding: Ace Hotel

I love packaging, product design, labels, you name it. I’m always on the lookout for great collateral and I found it at the Ace Hotel. Very cool stuff by The Official Manufacturing Co.

Textured Walls

Now that we’ve moved in, I’ve been a bit preoccupied with what to put on our walls. Well, I need to unpack first, but hanging artwork is on my radar.

Maybe that’s why I seem to be spotting interesting textured walls all over the place – these walls are decorative in their own right and don’t need any extras at all. From fur wallpaper to wide plank wood, who said walls can’t be a bit more ornamental?
