Stay inspired and dont miss a thing. Weekly updates from BLDG 25

i just got a new phone on friday…spent all weekend taking photos of things that mean a lot to me, which are namely my roommates. see below.

so i thought it’d be fun to see what pix my friends and co-workers keep on their phones…what’s important to them. here’s just a sampling…

twinkle pictures

These portraits by Laura Adel Johnson are awesome! Why have I never thought to create pictures with tiny holiday lights? I’m kind of amazed at how much detail comes through, too. Check out Laura’s blog for pictures of a few more pieces.

Skip Disneyworld. Go to Huntington Gardens in LA. I went there when I was in Los Angeles visiting our Free People stores last week. It is a beautiful cactus garden and greenhouse. Definitely worth visiting.


This video makes me want to take a vacation! Watch as the pretty clouds floating atop the Alps seem to flow like waterfalls in this little time-lapse clip! So pretty…

I love the simple and interesting compositions of these photos by Yamamoto Masao. I think that the simpleness and calmness of the photos makes them all the more striking. Check out more here.
Another great find from Dear Ada.

Pretty much all of Jane South‘s work totally amazes me because it’s made primarily of paper. Yes, paper! They’re visually interesting enough on their own, that just makes them even more impressive! Check out Jane’s site for more incredible art!

I adore your blog! Where do you find all those great artists? I would like to know how to make something like this myself and decorate my wall with it. ;)

infrared trees

These gorgeous images were all taken using infrared photography, which uses an image sensor or film that is sensitive to infrared light, as opposed to normal visible light. The way various objects reflect infrared light is quite different from how they reflect visible light, which is why the green on the trees turns white, and the sky looks much darker. Learn more about infrared photography here and here!

sarah ogren

I am obsessed with these collages by Sarah Ogren! I love animal heads on human bodies. I don’t know why, they’re just really appealing – don’t you agree? Don’t miss Sarah’s blog, and check out her Etsy shop too!

painted apartments

How would you like to live in one of these painted apartment buildings in Russia? I love all the eye popping colors! Check out this blog for many more great photos! I think my car needs a paint job like this…

Hi there! I really like the Free People blog and I love all the cool ideas that are posted in it. Since a lot of the blog-items show artwork and creative projects, I figured you might also like the artwork of my father, who is specialized in trompe-l'oeils (French word for illusions created by paintings). Check out his website for all the beautiful projects he has already realized. Unfortunately, this Dutch website hasn't been translated in English yet. But most of the pictures, which you can see in the section called 'open werken', speak for themselves. I especially like his first elevator-project (lift I), the second toilet-project (toilet II) and the guestroom-project (logeerkamer). I'm not trying to get a chance for free publication this way, I just hope that other people can enjoy my father's artwork! Kind regards from a Belgian free-people-aholic!

Last night our Free People kickball team had it’s final game of the season. Though we lost to Urban Outfitters with a score of 8 to 7, the FP team competed admirably, and had a lot of fun!

Some members of the team get psyched for the game!

Heather gives the ball a good hard kick.
Watch out! Elena is coming to get you!
Bob makes a sweet catch.
Was she out? No?
Kevin displays his killer throwing abilities.
