This great poem is worth the read: The Adventures of Amit Majmudar by Amit Majmudar

Its too easy for most to dismiss collage as something that elementary school kids do with safety scissors and paste. Collage is cool, especially Haley Witman take.
This house by Palinda Kannangara Architects does a great job balancing a modern look with a warm and natural feel. I’d be happy to kill some time in that living room!
