Creatures of the Deep

Strangely, I've been noticing a lot of Octopuses (or is it Octopi?) and lately and these mysterious invertebrates have been leaving their mark in the decorating arena, quite a bit further than the watery abyss they are known to inhabit.  Have a look - I happen to love their sinuous lines. 

Now, I just need a beach house...
