Friday Reader Roundup

Mary’s Picks

  • This 1969 home in Palm Springs was completely revived by Dallas based interior designer, Emily Summers. It’s basically mid-century modern heaven. Those chairs…ahhhhhh…those chairs. (via Architectural Digest)
  • If you’re needing a company logo or any graphic design work, you’ve got to check out 99 Designs. You put in what services you’re needing (i.e. business cards, letter heads, logos) and designers submit designs based on your needs. If you select one of the designs then that designer gets paid. It’s pretty awesome.

Jess’s Picks

  • The Sideshow Sign Co. has some really beautiful customizable signs! They are a little pricey — the marquee letters run about $545 — but you can get them custom and they can make such a statement. Plenty of other beautiful vintage-aesthetic signs on their site. (via Eat Drink Chic)
  • I was totally blown away by this week’s Outdoor Space Challenge featuring Mr. Goodwill Hunting on the Nate Show. It never occurred to me to paint indoor wood furniture with exterior paint to seal it up and turn it into outdoor furniture. I’m still not sure I entirely trust it… but I might just try it out with an old harvest table we have in storage.
