Faux Leather Seats Come Standard, Red Pouf - $79
Good price for this poof
simple fireplace surround of plastered masonry (at least looks like) but fireplace opening has a "cap" like a hood over a stove, instead of a mantle or just bare opening. Gives definition without fuss (and it's different).
idea: a bench cum shelves at end of a bed (but I'd use the shelves fro real storage, like shoes!)
in charcoal grey the house looks smart not dowdy, and fits in with the natural setting. It must also look great in the snow.
elegant, timeless (but modern). Very beautiful. Really like the bannister of copper pipe and black steel.
Single Hook #009
inspiration everywhere! Love this hook. Not cutesy but clever.
Nordic Ware Detailed Decorating Pen - $14.95
great tool/gift for Elizabeth!
flat screen tv camouflage--great. Though I'd like a more decorative mirror frame for visual interest when the set is off. This mirror doesn't seem right for the style of the mantel, etc.
Madame Est Servie Mirror
a mirror-backed ironing board--so ingenious! Perfect for Katie.
Ljusa Flashlight, Hand-Powered - $4.99
great little gift idea...especially for friends in the country
backsplash...interesting use of color and pattern
sliding screen door--excellent way to avoid the "two-doors-to-open" thing, and you don't have to see it when the outer door is closed.
no window over the sink gives extra storage opportunities. Don't ever spend my washing up time looking outdoors (!)--just at the task at hand.
polished concrete floor. Note baseboard installation for finished look
concrete floor should have grid marks--as if large squares of stone have been laid. I do prefer less of a sheen, though.
like the color of the concrete floor
concrete floor, subtly stained and sealed, not too glossy
diamond patterned stainless steel --sort of quilted looking--a little like pressed tin

Such a fun plate. Want to find out what size it is.

Tibetan Rug with Circles - $497
good looking rug for not a lot of money. Dimensions?
using fenciing as pot and cup holder. Creative!
second view of fencing as pot rack
the finish on the bedside chest of drawers - distressed, wiped-off paint look. Very "Provencal."
the very dark piece against the wall..The amount of satiny black looks dramatic but soothing and classic.
wall-mounted metrol shelving with hanging wine glass rack.
Alameda Royal Blue | Shop Ten 25 - $260
how big is this rug? The price would indicate that it's not that big.
this is the kind of "mews" I'd love to have for family and friends...as we get older.
sophisticated farmhouse. Love contrast of glossy white walls with black moulding trim and chairs. Very fresh.
division of space, with eye carried into other spaces---very good for organizing a small home
