In big cities they roam in flocks, and aren’t scared away by human foot traffic. Drop a crumb and they’re at your feet scrounging for more. Rats of the Sky, Rodents with Wings, Pidgeons. But would you feel the same way if they were vibrantly colorful, brightly adorning the middle of the sidewalk? Berlin-based artisians Julian Charriere and Julius Von Bismarck collaborated in a project to dye the birds an array of bright hues in order to change the perception of them being Flying Vermin. Without harming the pidgeons, Charriere and Von Bismarck spray painted the birds with a non-toxic paint and set them free so that maybe people will perceive them in a different light. What do you think?

As the days of summer are winding down, spending as much time as possible lounging outdoors is high on the priority list. Take a look at this this stylish outdoor hammock entitled La Seóra that just screams leisurely fun in the sun. The overall design showcases an element of modern sleek sophistication merged with an understated laid back Bohemian chic look. The mixture of materials and angled construction makes for an overall edgy design. We love it!

Photographer Tim Tadder has come up with a hilarious concept entitled Water Wigs. He and his crew scouted out a bunch of bald guys, dropped water balloons on their heads, and captured the splashing water just as it resembled a headfull of funny hairdo’s. The results are amazingly funny! Check out “The Don King”, “The Jesus” and “The Friar”. Visit TimTadder.com for more hilarious Water Wigs!

When it comes to a plane’s decorative facade, these none functioning WWII American military aircrafts have been outfitted above the rest! The Prima Air and Space Museum worked to create a gallery that showcased old military planes that had been converted into lasting works of art. Covering each craft in paint a team of contemporary artist, which include Eric Firestone, Carlo McCormick, Leslie Oliver and Meb Sobie, worked together to reinvent this plane “bone yard.” The result is an extensive gallery of painted planes that make for quite the visual display.

If I could spend the day sitting poolside, I would want to be laying next to this pool! Designed by Arqui+ Arquitectura, take a look at this gorgeous modern home located in Souther Portugal where wood, stone and concrete all work together to create a masterfully styled design. A two tiered infinity pool, layered to allow the overflow of the upper deck to cascade down into the lower area displays somewhat like a waterfall creating quite the stunning visual. The interior decor reflects a design that’s just as dramatic with large glass walls that frame the exterior views creating an open and airy feel.

It’s an explosion of “Sexual Color” captured by amazing Brazilian photographer Gabriel Wickbold. Having no prior photographic training, Wickbold makes magic as the models pose, covered in a mixture of paint and melted chocolate, creating a moment filled with bold  passion and energy. It’s hard to look away as each vivid frames draws you in, creating stunning portraits that show off the fluid nature of paint and the intensity of color, all working to create quite a striking visual.

“Photography has so much to do with my personality, it is fast, interacts with people, and responds instantly giving results.”

“Give him enough rope, and he can furnish the whole house.” – New York Times

Check out the amazing works of French designer Christian Astuguevieille, where cords, ropes and twines have all been used as the base material for a rather unexpected collection of furnishings.  With tactile designs that encourage you to become hands, each piece stands out as not only as a functional piece of furniture, but also a visually striking piece of art.

I’m sure you’ve seen photos taken from every angle, every possible perspective, until you come across some of Michael Rohde‘s work. Like you’re looking up into a room through a glass ceiling, Rohde’s photos come to life from below. Viewing inanimate objects from the underside might be a little confusing at first, and maybe even dizzying. But the sheer idea of viewing the world through the eyes of a very small insect or little dog is simply brilliant!
