I can’t believe I didn’t know about the Kansas City Library parking garage.  I went to Kansas once for a baseball game in college and I don’t think I’ve been back. WOW. How unbelievably inspired.  Here’s information about the design from collabcubed.

“Though the Kansas City Library Parking Garage in Kansas City, Missouri was completed in 2004, I had never seen it before. Designed by cdfm2 architects (now apparently 360 Architects), the book spines measure approximately 9 meters by 3 meters and are made of signboard mylar. The shelf showcases 22 titles reflecting a wide variety of reading interests suggested by Kansas City readers and then selected by The Kansas City Public Library Board of Trustees. Clever.”

Pretty interesting information. Perhaps this is why a room just never feels “quite right” in your home.

I came across this photo tonight while organizing some travel stuff. I was so drawn to those old chairs and their palette. The colors would work wonderfully for clothes, interiors, fabric, art…really anything. Thank fabulous, funky Ace Hotel in Palm Springs!
