Susie at Apartment Therapy came across a fun little tool on Paper Source‘s site: the colorscope!
The colorscope seeks to explain a bit about your personality based on the colors you like the best. Who knows where they came up with the personality traits you supposedly have if you like, say, plum, but it’s still really fun!
Here are the ones I picked!
I thought mine were pretty right for the most part, but I’m a sucker for anything that professes to tell me about myself from my palm, or my birthday, etc…
At any rate it was good fun! Check out the colorscope for yourself right here. Does yours fit your personality?
These honbachi, or book pots, were created by graphic designers Tokyo Pistol. I really like how they look! I feel like it would be really easy to make one on your own with an old disheveled book, but one perk of buying one from Tokyo Pistol would that the old book you got would be in Japanese! Check out the bindings on the books stacked in the picture! Pretty sweet…

Charlie Kratzer started drawing on his basement walls right in the middle, with a drawing of a painting by Picasso. From there he figured it wouldn’t be too hard to extend the drawings out to the edge of the walls – one thing lead to another, until he had decorated all of his basement walls with his drawings, using 10 dollars worth of Sharpie markers!
Why don’t people do more things like this? I love it! Artist Posterchild turned this abandoned newspaper box into a planter, with the help of a couple pieces of wood! There are so many empty newspaper boxes around Philly – I think we need some flowers for them! Click here for better pictures.
This clock is so awesome! Doe-C-Doe found it when she was thrift shopping for only $5! This is such an inspirational find – it occurs to me how easy it would be to make your own cross stitch clock! I have seen all sizes of clock fixtures at the craft shop for very cheap! It seems like it would be really fun to create your own cross stitch backing with numbers and decoration, and then attach the fixture for the hands!
I love these pretty and original light shades made by StudioTempera! They are gourds! StudioTempera, which is based in Turkey, hollows them out, decorates them, and then pokes little holes in them to be filled with beads for colored light, or nothing for normal light! They are so beautiful!
Apartment Therapy found these!
