believe in walls, and it seems that Pierre Stephan Dumas doesn't, either. He designed these bubble rooms for for Attrap'Reves in France. They're at once fantastical, like dew drops in an enchanted forest, and futuristic, like terraforming colonies with airlocks.
Remember when fellow Homie, Dana, asked for your help in moving out of state? Well, guys, you should be proud — because of all your help, she and her partner successfully moved. Here's how they did it despite a flesh hungry dog attack, high-pressure interviews, and a failed credit report.
Here's the dilemma… we'd love to make more use of our large balcony — except there's no power outlet out there, or even lights above. It gets pretty dark out there, so we havent really made much use of the space at night which is a shame. We've run extension cords for power before, but it would be cool if any of the Offbeat Homies have got better ideas for lighting up the balcony!
We love creating a family of offbeat sponsors. Some of you may remember the gorgeous ketubah (pictured above) when it was featured in a wedding on Offbeat Bride a few years ago. Readers went nuts over the artwork in the comments, and it turns out it was created by the bride's mother, Wendy Blevins. Since then, Wendy has branched out and is now offering her artistic talents to everyone via her business Little Fly Studios.
Let's all look at some custom artwork examples (including a portrait of Ariel!), and support a creative family member of an Offbeat Empire reader while getting a special discount.
Can anyone suggest a quick, cheap fix for these Moroccan lamps? I'm not nearly as crafty as I would like to be and the silk surrounding the shades is so dry and brittle it tears easily if you attempt to clean it. I would however, like to maintain a spicy feel to them. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated!
