Hatch

I was so excited earlier today by a visit from Becky of the funny and insightful The Bubb Report. Becky also writes for Design Republic's terrific blog Hatch, and today she created a lovely post about Postcards from Colorado! Becky has great taste, is funny, and intelligent, so I am honored. Thank you, Becky. And, if your visiting from Hatch, thank you for stopping by!
The reason Becky came over is that I commented on her recent Hatch post about the home of Douglas Coupland. I really fell in love with this home, so, with many thanks to Becky, here it is....
Coupland restored this house in an effort to preserve a type of architecture disappearing from his Vancouver neighborhood. How I love to hear that! One installation, by the wall of windows, is dice, and another is spools of thread. You see him in one photo below applying white Legos to a post in his gallery space. So cool.
Definitely read more about it at Hatch and in the The New York Times.

Congrats to you, Liza! Can't wait to run over there. And I agree. This is a show stopper.
