Bottle Cap Cottage

Russian pensioner Olga Kostina has turned her tiny cottage in the remote town of Kamarchaga in the Siberian taiga, into architectural macrame. Inspired by traditional motifs, Olga has painstakingly nailed over 30,000 plastic bottle caps onto her house to create pixelated patterns, and plans to continue adding more until every wall is completely covered.

Commenter “wendywonderland” says it best:

“Our magic comes from within, inspired by the world we inhabit and the resources we stumble across. How to teach people to listen to the small voice that guides them to the plastic bottle caps, and allows them to be viewed as beautiful? ”

How to teach people, indeed. Thanks, Olga!

How would you transform your house into livable art?
