Ariele Alasko

One of the coolest Instagram accounts that I follow is that of Ariele Alasko (@arielealasko). She is a woodworker and furniture builder living in Brooklyn, NY. Her creations, from spalted maple bowls and walnut spoons, to wall panels and headboards, are spectacular. Her attention to detail is impeccable - she even has enough patience to fill walls with eucalyptus leaves! It's craziness I tell ya. You can check out her work on her website, but it is her home and studio (10 blocks away from each other - sweet!) in particular that I wanted to share with you today. They are beautiful and inspiring, filled with vintage finds and bits from nature but my favourite are her adorable pets - Mr. C the cat and Mazie the pitbull/boxer mix. I had a hard time narrowing down photos of these 2 spaces from her IG stream. So lovely. (Photos with permission from Ariele)

OK, I have to admit the dog and cat sitting at the table immediately made me smile. What a great way to start the day. Thanks for these great pictures.

If I were fourteen again, this would send me leaping into the life of a woodwright. This is what success in life looks like.
