Happy Friday. I’m in New York City today at the Stella McCartney flagship store crafting away with kids today for Health Child, Healthy World. Making some reusable treat bags they can use for Halloween.
But before I head off to NYC, I wanted to share some random things that have been on my mind lately. One is this Dunkin Donuts recycling bin I spied in Seoul, Korea. Loved how they have separate areas not only for paper and plastic cups, but one for LIQUIDS, too. How many Starbucks trash cans have you seen just leaking a mess of leftover coffee over the years? Here, they found a solution to let people pour their unfinished drinks into a separate bin that I’m sure also gets poured down the drain to get treated as any waste water would. Brilliant.
My current mood boards in the home office. These aren’t mood boards for product, exactly… but mood boards for styling my own product line. We’re shooting our Danny Seo Home products and I pulled some images for our styling team to look at to show how I’d like our towels and bedding to look… always helpful to have visual examples.
To get ready for the shoot, we need multiples of everything and at least one product sample per color…here are all out of cotton bathmats! This one I can cross off the list. I found our whole selection at my local TJ Maxx and got the last beautiful green one at HomeGoods. Yes, even I have to shop for product, too!
We have two wonderful patterns for our Kids program and lots of samples here of the woodland hand towels, washcloths and bath towels. Just need to figure out how to shoot these to show the playful pattern in full!
Eek…missing all of our color options in bedding. White and tan won’t cut it! Need to run out and get the green, cream and blue sheets!
And totally random thought: What do you think about a mattress in a box? A real, coil mattress that you can actually wheel home from the store and it expands (slowly) into an actual mattress? We’re not talking air mattress here, but something that could retail for more than a $1000 in the stores, but you could take it home for under $400?
Just wondering…. hee hee….
Happy Friday all!
