What’s in a Meme?

.

A meme is “an idea, behavior or style that spreads from person to person within a culture.” A meme acts as a unit for carrying cultural ideas, symbols or practices in this case being the “What People Think I Do” meme.

INSPIRATION: A Tiny Apartment Transforms into 24 Rooms

I just saw this the other day for the first time through @lisa_ttro and I was in awe. Such smart use of space. It made me ponder the amazing amount of possibilities within any space. Architect, Gary Chang transformed his 344 square foot Hong Kong apartment into 24 different rooms with the use of sliding panels. This is what design is all about- finding the best use and systematic plan for any space given any set of circumstances.

If you just heard a noise it was probably the sound of my jaw-dropping gasp as I looked at photos of Roberto Cavalli’s ‘Ultimate Guy Pad’ in T Magazine’s Design and Living Summer 2009 issue. Read that article and for God’s sake look at the stunning photos.

Cavalli commissioned Italian architect Italo Rota to design and construct this glorious structure in Florence on his 32 acre property. Here are some other pictures I found of this stunning home.

These aren’t even the best of the photos. Definitely check out the article in T Magazine. There is a beautiful steel sculptural staircase that is to die for inside his lovely abode. My new fashion designer obsession for the next few months: Roberto Cavalli.

I’d write more but I’m still searching for the words. This house has left me speechless. Gorgeous.
