Hanging with Adam Joseph: Part 3
"During the summer I’m on my bike all the time" admits Adam Joseph, Founder of LEGS media, whom we’ve been covering this week while raiding his home in Brooklyn. Adam explained to The Inside Source that he nicknamed his bikes “Playdate” after they were secured from one his creative shooting jobs. After being gifted the bikes, now the digital executive houses one for himself, one for his girlfriend, and um, well, one for an extra guest who pops by. It’s a traveling party with him. 
Boasting the convenience of biking vs walking, Adam insists that once you try cycling, you’ll never go back. “Besides being convenient, it’s just fun”, he adds with a smile. “I tend to sing sometimes when I’m on my bike, yeah I’m that guy.”
Start perusing eBay for your own bike, or maybe even another one for your Spring honey this upcoming season. It makes a great “day-date”.

Hanging with Adam Joseph: Part 2

In our second look at the home of media notable Adam Joseph of LEGS media, The Inside Source encountered a few precious sacred objects nestled in corners. The first is a tribal mask he purchased in South Africa while on a commercial shoot. ”There are so many cool markets there and a gazillion masks to pick from”, says Adam of his difficult decision to choose amongst epic options. “This one just spoke to me”.

The cow on his windowsill is a sentimental find from attending a friends wedding in India last year. If you can’t visit the intimate little market in Mumbai called “Chor Bazaar” (where he found this), then how about checking out eBay for another authentic find from India? We found a few sacred cow figurines here.

Hanging with LEGS’ Adam Joseph

In our never-ending quest to infiltrate cool spaces, The Inside Source visits LEGS Media’s Adam Joseph in his Brooklyn residence. Acting as co-founder and managing director of the multi-media studio, Adam is the master juggler of diverse projects. “One day we’re creating an interactive music video and the next we’re doing a holographic show” quips the digital sensei, “but hopefully we have more than one day to create each”. Recently dubbed as “a notable player in the world of experiential marketing" by Ad Age magazine, we were eager to see what inspires this man on the home front.

The most refreshing common denominator in his abode? Plants. Lots of them. “They bring a sense of peace to me. I’m also an avid orchid enthusiast” admits Adam. “It could take a year of giving them the right conditions to get them to flower for less than a month… and that’s a sense of accomplishment”. 

We couldn’t agree more so we searched eBay for a few inspirations ourselves — including hanging macrame pieces and other creative terrariums to house your future home plants. Let the green thumbing begin.

The Video that Went Viral This Week
Published this past Monday (boasting 19 million views in only 2 days), is a video directed by Tatia Pilieva entitled First Kiss. The video, which asks 20 strangers to kiss for the first time displays curiously awkward and intimate moments that leave you feeling warm and fuzzy. The video is scored by Soko (a musician who performed at one of our eBay events a while back) as well featuring her as one of the experimental strangers assigned to the mission. Read Slate’s review, an article posted within 24 hours on who exactly these other compelling characters are.
To see the video, watch First Kiss.

Hanging With: Megan Guip Pt 4 
Wandering through the home of Wilhelm designer Megan Guip, we spotted a chic dress mannequin on a tripod which holds a vintage fur shawl from her family’s closet. ”I bought the mannequin my first year at Parson’s for a form and space project I was doing in the 80’s, and kept it ever since”. Megan positioned the shrug next to vintage photos of her Transylvanian born grandparents dressed in traditional saxon dress.
We believe this makes for an overall charming family wall. Sourcing eBay for similar mannequin forms, we suggest combining clothes and imagery to honor your ancestry with style in your own home.

Hanging with Megan Guip: Part 3
The Inside Source visited designer Megan Guip’s home, where she creates Wilhelm, her accessories line made of feathers and flowers. Our past posts showed a wall map and wooden serving trays. One of the striking pieces we discovered in the Bowery loft in New York is nestled by the natural light of the window. We asked Megan it’s origin.
"I found this piece walking on the beach in Fire Island. I ran back to the house to get my boyfriend. We procured a large wagon from one of the neighbors. There were two kids hanging out on the beach so we threw them some money to help lift the piece to the wagon and we walked it back to the house" she says. When transporting the wood from beach to vehicle, Megan adds: "A small parade of people formed behind the piece as we walked it through the neighborhood. Everyone was asking what we were going to do with it." 
To all those curious beach go-er’s, here is the answer. The result is a splendid mix of color and texture, especially positioned next to green foliage. Inspired by this idea, we searched eBay for driftwood and found some impressive pieces to adorn your home.

Hanging with Megan Guip: Wood Servers

In our series of home inspirations this week, The Inside Source asked designer Megan Guip about her collection of wooden serving dishes. “Most of the pieces are Dansk which is made out of teak or acacia wood” explains the creative force behind Wilhelm. “The rest I’ve collected along the way. I love serving food in and on wood. I love the different grains and colors. It’s a beautiful platform for food.”

We feel the same way, so we searched eBay for a few Dansk salad bowls and wooden trays ourselves. Hello dinner party!

Two immediate home details that caught our eye was a world map that she kept on a desk near her arts & crafts. The other is an eye-popping collection of straw hats she collected over the years. Stay tuned next week for other home inspirations from the rising designer.
