Loving these anti-greeting cards from the Hate Mail shop, which will allow you to send out some beautiful insults to your favourite enemies – they’ll even customise by personally handwriting your message and sending to your recipient anonymously.

Bryan Sansivero – Abandoned New York Mansion

Bryan Sansivero captures an abandoned lavish mansion with a secret past

Just outside New York City, there’s a sprawling, 57-room mansion sitting on 6 acres and equipped with a bowling alley, indoor tennis court, two bars, a library, opulent interiors, with spiral staircases and chandeliers. It is also entirely abandoned. Built in the late 1930s and last inhabited in the 1970s, the neglect is allegedly down to an owner who would buy lavish mansions and leave them to rot. While the building itself is in need of repairs, the collections within it remain untouched and have been beautifully captured by photographer Bryan Sansivero – there are dolls, old photographs, plastic flowers, paintings and two pianos, stark reminders of a privileged life from the past. Fascinating stuff! 🙂

IKEA Announce Collaboration with HAY Design

IKEA drop teaser launching their new 'YPPERLIG' collection with HAY

In advance of their new line for 2017, IKEA are set to release teasers announcing their new collaborative ‘YPPERLIG’ collection with Danish furniture company HAY. This first video is as cleverly cryptic as it is surreal and follows the path of a glass ball through an empty apartment – a great way of staying creative without showing any of the new products. The video itself was a collaboration between three different agencies, Kühl & SolvstromNikextension, and Barkas. Can’t wait to see what they come out with next – watch this space 🙂
