This is not a fake image or painting, but rather a real kitchen created by artist Liza Lou. She spent 5-years building this life-sized kitchen and backyard using lots of tiny glass beads. These brightly colored glass beads are known as "seed beads" and often used for making jewelry. These "seed beads" cover the food, the water in the sink, the furniture and fixtures, and all 250,000 blades of grass in the backyard. No machines were used, just her hands and a pair of tweezers to place each one in the right place. Continue reading for more images and information.

Whether if you're self-employed or can work remotely, being stuck at home all day and night can get tedious. David McKinney, an app developer for social media website Product Hunt, decided to mix things up a bit by transforming a Ford Transit van into a mobile office. He says, "It has all the usual office things like Wi-Fi, AC power, and a desk for working. It also has a couch for thinking, a view, and fresh air. And it's always near the ocean or a place for exploring. I think most things around us can be designed to be better for people. Here's my take on the modern office - a better place to do good work."

The diagonal pattern is opened up on several strategic positions, working as a privacy screen." Continue reading for more.
