Already one of our favorite places to buy great designs (from pens to organizers and hair-ties) for the home, Japanese brand MUJI just released pictures of their newest foray into architectural design: ready-made minimalist huts, intended to be set up in rural areas as small-footprint getaways.

Constructed from concrete and wood, these diagonal concrete tiles are meant for mixing and matching (and have us currently wondering if it's time to redo our backsplashes).

'Tis the season to add a bunch of theme-y decorations to your home, but before it's all red ribbon and holly leaves, take a cue from Emily Henderson and dress your mantle for fall using one of her three styles—Casual Coastal, Eclectic Artist, or Contemporary Glam—for inspiration.

Complete with blue Belgian limestone worktops, Carrara marble backsplash, and antique brass taps, this Shaker kitchen from deVOL is everything cool and classy in one room design.

An exploration of "the deep strangeness of the cloud," that ephemeral, expansive, and seemingly secure storage space that's come to guard so many of our memories and secrets, shows how it has changed our attitude towards the internet.

For a project entitled "Daily Spoon," Stian Korntved Ruud created 365 variations on a spoon design—each of them hand carved in gorgeous grainy woods.
