So REFIND recently bought a house and now we are remodeling! First up is the bathroom and our heads our here - concrete garden oasis. We love the feeling of an outdoor garden sink, especially since our small square backyard doesn’t allow us one. The end result we hope will feel like grandma’s European garden - a little rugged and overflowing with life.

Loving this artwork from scientific illustrator Noel Badges Pugh! Presented in the classical sense of a scientific diagram, Pugh manages to put a modern spin through his composition and use of color. Even his shading is represented using a blue tone instead of grey. These would pieces would make beautiful tattoos!
House and Garden in Tokyo, Japan. Those of you who live on the east coast this winter I know are day-dreaming with me about this residence. If you thought you couldn’t live in a garden you were wrong. The tiny townhouse has a total of 5 stories with limited space so architect Ryue Nishizawa designed the levels with glass walls. Concrete beds were installed along the interior walls for greenery, which provide privacy - genius!
Jinya Dam in Fukuoka Prefecture, Japan
From nature to interiors. We often will envelop our most intimate spaces in patterns and colorways pulled from nature. We find comfort in connecting with our natural environment and these spaces are where we can meditate or reflect on our day.
"Ivans House", Costa Rica 2013
Shelf mushrooms at Rickett’s Glen State Park - resembling floating shelves and a reminder that nature is the root of all design.
Costa Rica 2013 - What a vibrant and lush country! We found this trip to be really inspirational - indulging in the natural environment - there’s so much to see. We were lucky enough to drive through the country and experience more rural areas, see more of the land, the groves of mango trees. Most of the structures there were painted in wild colors and were encased by iron or concrete patterned gates.
We fell in love with the weathered WWII structures in our adventures at Cape Henlopen. Nature has quickly reclaimed its territory over the concrete. From the sunset piercing through the grasses to the passing architectural shadows of a pipe dream. The unity of the two create something so modern we could not help but be drawn in.
modernity in the great outdoors - this all you need.
We’re getting excited for tonight’s event and to meet all of you! We hope to see our friends but also new faces as we celebrate our newest collection of handcrafted planters and vintage homewares. Don’t miss it - at the Random Tea Room from 6-9 ! <3 REFIND
Reclaimed Indonesian wood laid in a herringbone pattern with a quirky touch of steel painted legs by From the Source - stunning.
43 years ago we celebrated our first Earth Day! See environmental advocate Ira Einhorn speaking to local Temple Students April 22, 1970. Water your plants today - go for a walk in the park - take a breath of fresh air - recycle your containers - and freakin’ love your Earth.
More room for plants! Build some small shelves into your window to get your plants the sun they need. We love the eclectic look and the additional presence of “green” that the paint brings.
