Quick Picks 37, 2013 – featuring beautiful wedding gowns, inverted landscapes and personality-filled frogs.

Quick Picks

We’ve spent this week enjoying the sights of Singapore and a beautiful beach resort in Thailand. But we didn’t forget about you! So as we dust off the sand and unpack our suitcases, here’s this week’s quick pick of internet finds for you to enjoy. As usual, good things come in threes…


The Knot Australia has a list of nine of the first things that should be on your wedding to do list.

The One Day Bridal Boutique in Melbourne has some absolutely stunning dresses. Their website is under construction, but in the meantime you can find them on Facebook.

Weddings are all about placing the spotlight on a couple. But what if you’re not the kind of person who likes to be the centre of attention? Offbeat Bride has a wedding survival guide for introverted couples.

Art & Design

The creative team at Müzz design studio are putting together some really interesting furniture and homewares. I’m particularly taken with their Lumi table and Meld glassware.

The inverted slices of artist Reynald Drouhin’s Landscape Monolith series of photographs make you look at the landscape far more closely than you might otherwise. Note: some of the images on this website might not be considered appropriate in your workplace.

I love it when an artist’s pet project takes on a life of its own. Humans of New York started out as an attempt to photograph 10,000 New Yorkers and plot their photos on a map but has become so much more.

Random Asides

Did you know that City Chicks will rent you a coop and some chickens to help you decide if you really do want to become an urban farmer.

I couldn’t resist including these photos of personality-filled frogs.

The Urban List has a list of 25 reasons why Brisbane is better than Sydney and Melbourne.

That’s it for another week’s quick picks. Have a great weekend!
