Surveys show that the Danish people are the most content people on the planet. Christiania is a small community of 850 residents covering about 85 acres in the Danish capital of Copenhagen. Christiania was founded in 1971 when many people began to live in an area that was abandoned by the military. Initially, the area was populated with vagrants and squatters, but developed into somewhat of a hippie community where freedom is embraced. Freedom for artists, musicians and yes, drug dealers. The residents developed their own set of rules, completely independent of the Danish government. Strolling the streets of Christiania you will find paintings, sculptures, live music and theatre.

Miami Beach Apartment

I am so in love with this Miami Beach Apartment. It is so sleek, vogue and modern. Love it! The apartment was designed by Andreea Avram Ruso of Avram Ruso Interiors.

Oleg Oprisco

Oleg Oprisco is a very talented Ukranian photographer. He is also very mysterious or shall I say private? I couldn't find any information regarding this amazing artist. You must view more of his work. Most of his work is seen on Oleg's live journal or his website Oprisco.

Alessandro Bêda

Behance Network is a website that allows people to network, demo their creative portfolios, projects and collaborations. Alessandro Bêda from Lisbon, Portugal has designed this creative flower vase, but hasn't found a way to produce and sell it.


This is a cute short for legos. I'm dedicating this to my nephews who just can't seem to get enough Legos. The sound effects are great. clickity click

Penny Tile

This is such a great idea. I love seeing people be creative with resources. Apartment Therapy reader Tova tiled their powder room with pennies. Later, New York's Standard Hotel restaurant tiled the Standard Grill in pennies. I've also seen floors tiled in circular wood which is the same concept, just a different material.

Cassandra Jones

Cassandra has the uncanny ability to take objects and turn them into masterful pieces of art. She used flamingos to create images of botanical prints and wallpaper; other objects were used to create kaleidoscope images. See more of Cassandra's work on her website Cassandra C. Jones

Michael Paulus

I happened to stumble upon Michael Paulus on etsy. I like Michael's sense of humor. He has taken popular cartoon characters and rendered their skeletal system as he imagines it might be.
You can see more of his work on his website Michael Paulus and he also has items for sale on etsy.
