Fair enough. Obviously the store selling said item wants to make a profit, so there'll be a significant price difference between buying from them and buying directly from a craftsperson. But bear in mind that this ideabook (and all my ideabooks, for that matter) are really about inspiration — I pick things I love, grouped around a central idea. The key is the *look* of these pieces and how they can spur you on to change things up in your own space. I may not buy the Copenhague table, but I may very well be inspired to put together something very similar from IKEA. Or get a modern pillow with a splash of orange. Whatever. These ideabooks are a guide to a look rather than a list of things to purchase — you may decide to splurge on something you love, or you may look for something similar on a budget or DIY. There are no rules. :)

In my guest room I keep a variety of short reading materials - short stories, coffee table books on design, a short pictorial history of my town, a book on the muppets, etc. Something for everyone and nothing that takes more than a weekend to thumb through.

Loved my old mat I had for years it got misplaced in a cross country move. It said 'All our friends bring us joy, some by coming and some by going'.

@lizzie91001, I am a bit the same, the actual paint that gets on the surface looks ok but every other surface not so. I am getting better though, we are just about to embark on our major paint kitchen, living and meals. I am going to share this article with husband as he always wants to buy the cheap brushes....not for this job, most timely article for us
