The Row house. And the creative power of boredom.

Newly built mid-century cool housing is not something you would usually pair with 'affordable' but that is exactly what this housing project 'Row on 25th' in Houston, Texas set out to achieve. Investor and landowner Holden Shannon's own home was decorated with the help of designer Barbara Hill. I love the choice of vintage mid-century furniture starting with that fab turquoise sofa, very cool.

Yesterday I was at 'The Conference: Power, Disruption & Lies' in Malmö, Sweden. There were many inspiring seminars but one in particular stood out: 'Being bored but not being boring'. It was about people spending to much time looking at screens and not enough time being bored. The experts say we should switch off and just 'be' to get creative ideas. Like wise with children; being bored sparks their imagination.  As a result we're planning a little 'switching off time' each evening from now on...starting with me...the blogger and Pinterest addict (oh and I haven't told the girls yet!)....

Do you spend to much time on the screen and not enough time being bored?
