Happy to Bed from IKEA

I tweeted about this last week, but thought it deserved a blog post all to itself. The IKEA Happy to Bed YouTube page is a lovely creation; utilising Facebook information to create a personalised bedroom full of IKEA products. It's clever, dead on brand and gently pushes the user to buy the items selected for them. Video below, but do try it out for yourself.

On curiosity

Curiosity is a wonderful thing.

It’s curiosity that lets us discover new things; that desire to rummage in the dirt for previously unknown knowledge, methods and approaches. The petulant voice inside your head that loudly demands, ‘I want to know more about this. Stop messing around on Facebook and tell me more about this.’

It’s that little voice that pushes us to learn more, the push that opens the door to new ideas and inspirations. It shows passion, fire and a willingness to learn more about your world (whatever that world may be).

NASA are great at naming things. Last month, the Curiosity rover landed on Mars to learn more about a giant ball of rock 249 million miles away. Its first achievement was to send back this glorious piece of Instagram.

Never stop being curious.
