Paint App? Yes, please.

Apartment Therapy has reported that Benjamin Moore is going to be releasing a new iPhone paint matching app. I am drooling. Basically, you snap a photo of a color you find anywhere (a beautiful green building, for example) and the app matches the color to a Benjamin Moore paint color!

Available June 1.

I am so getting it.

Lovely Things

Hello. Just wanted to stop by (while I have internet) and leave notes about things I'm liking right now:

Our new Portland friend, Janelle, introduced me to her Penguin. Yes, this penguin machine turns flat tap water into sparkling Perrier-esque water! How delightful! Add a little lime or mint? Perfection.

Tasty interior photos from Apartment Therapy's 2009 Small Cool Contest Winners. See photos here.

Everyone in Portland has raised beds. I'm in love. We also saw these at TONS of vineyards in Napa. People grow herbs and fruits and veggies. What a darling way to have a little garden! I could totally manage a garden this size, even in an urban setting. You can buy a kit to build your own, here.

Dwell Studio bedding. I know I'm late to jump on this wagon, but I didn't see what all the fuss was about until I saw a bed made up with this bedding in a charming shop in Portland on Trendy Third called Manor.
