At first glance, the design of the space is great, with modern elements and materials mixed with more traditional counterparts. But the space also has intention and a story.</p> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="620" height="906" title="Design, andybeach, installation" alt="" src="http://design.org/sites/default/files/blog/2011/12/31/andybeach_01.jpg?1325385371" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-images"> <div class="field-label">Images:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_images" width="620" height="345" title="Design, andybeach, installation" alt="" src="http://design.org/sites/default/files/blog/2011/12/31/andybeach_03.jpg?1325385514" /> </div> <div class="field-item even"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_images" width="620" height="454" title="Design, andybeach, installation" alt="" src="http://design.org/sites/default/files/blog/2011/12/31/andybeach_02.jpg?1325385514" /> </div> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_images" width="620" height="790" title="Design, andybeach, installation" alt="" src="http://design.org/sites/default/files/blog/2011/12/31/andybeach_04.jpg?1325385515" /> </div> <div class="field-item even"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_images" width="620" height="345" title="Design, andybeach, installation" alt="" src="http://design.org/sites/default/files/blog/2011/12/31/andybeach_05.jpg?1325385515" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-featured"> <div class="field-label">Featured:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Not Featured </div> </div> </div> <p><a href="http://design.org/blog/my-back-and-i-will-take-you-thither-installation-and-story-andy-beach" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://design.org/blog/my-back-and-i-will-take-you-thither-installation-and-story-andy-beach#comments design Installation Design interior philadelphia Sun, 01 Jan 2012 02:39:52 +0000 jessicapatterson 3987 at http://design.org What I Wore Today: Illustrations by Danielle Kroll http://design.org/blog/what-i-wore-today-illustrations-danielle-kroll <p>I've seen many a photo gallery cataloging wardrobe choices, but I like Philadelphia-based designer <a href="http://www.hellodaniellekroll.com/" target="Danielle Kroll">Danielle Kroll</a>'s approach.
