Using Plain Linen is a marvelous way of drawing attention to other means of design i.e Wallpaper, Architecture, Art, Lighting.. Here is some examples of using colour with a plain linen design. Sofa in PLAIN-47 Sweet Pea, sofa above in PLAIN-8 Duck Egg and swivel chair in PLAIN-16 Cornflower.

This IS the old fashioned way, I first saw it in Italy, and it works well.

Mariaholman ... Oh, I agree with you and wouldn't have a setup like that, either. I was just trying to figure out what they might have had in mind. For all I know, it may be just a decorative element rather than actually being used to drip-dry glasses.

I agree ... it's probably just decorative furnishings. Let the designers live in what they design (with kids, husbands and animals). Then they might find out the (im)practicalities of some elements. For instance ... throw blankets on couches ... lovely to look at if you are a bachelor(ette) or have a cleaning crew every day. One cat can either make that throw a 'shedding' spot or knead it into non-recognition. Or the grandkids will use it as a cape or cover for the coffee table (great hiding spot). My house may not be design beautiful, but we live in it ... and nobody gets upset when our 'throw' (an old towel/blanket) gets hair all over it. We just run the sticky-tape thing over it and toss it in the washer.

I DO keep my old sheets/blankets/towels nicely folded and awaiting playtime in a lovely basket (plastic) that I lined with some favorite old pillowcase fabric, so I guess I do have some design beautiful elements ... of course the cats (two) love it as a nesting space and crawl under and hide, so it isn't always so neat ... but that is not one battle I choose to fight.

I am never comfortable without my feet up, so stools, ottomen, coffee tables, counters... nothing is safe.

The TVs in a couple of those pictures are too high. They should be at eye level while sitting. Otherwise, it won't look right and you'll get some sort of strain in your neck or back.

My poor husband leaned back once too often in his beloved '89 Eames and crashed to the floor. Is there any hope of repair of that wonderful curved back, or is he destined for the scrap heap. (I'm talking about the chair!)

What is the best interior color for a condo & goes with everything that you have. I want a color that is friendly & warm. And that says welcome to your families & friends. My place is one big open concept to a kitchen/dining room/ living room with a big kitchen counter top, love to cook. Kitchen & counter top is white laminate, hard to keep clean. can I paint this ? Any ideas is appreciated. And thank you, have a great week.

ptmatthews: I wrap a freezer pack in a pillowcase, and stick it down by my feet. I guess like in the olden days when they used bedwarmers from the fire to warm themselves. cooling your feet or hands is one of the best ways to cool down quickly (although I do know a trick with an ice-cube- but that's for another forum) ;)

I use an old school desk as my dressing table, plenty of storage and character, and a triple-mirror hanging over so I can see where my eyebrows end.

Feeling Knotty? Add a Little Rope to Your Decor

To me, this would get old very quickly - and yes, to me it cheapens it, but I don't want to hurt the owner's feelings - to each her own! It seems like an ok idea for the beach or lake. I'm not really into "themes" such as nautical, etc. - I think they get tiring...but lots of people like this type of thing. I also absolutely hate (sorry everyone) all these signs people now put up in there houses - things like "Simple" or "Fresh" in the kitchen or "Keep Calm and Carry On" in the family room....I really hope this trend passes by fast. I remember when I first saw it a few years ago and thought, "this will go away fast" - and it hasn't yet. I always feel like "use ropes" or "use buttons" or all these signs are all about someone who wants us to buy all this stuff...get tired of it...and then buy something else in 5 years. Maybe that shows my age!:)

Angie, I agree. I think some of these rope elements might look really nice in a beach home with a nautical theme. But if the owner is happy with their room, that's all that matters.

I didn't want to hurt anyone's feeling either, which is why I didn't say which photos I didn't like. I actually found some of these interesting.

I see signs at spas and such, and I don't mind that. I don't understand people painting words on their walls, or hanging signs. I don't know anyone that does this, but I have seen them in magazines, HGTV, and online.

I still really love looking at other peoples' decorating style. I'm sure to a lot of people, my home would be quite boring.

I so love seeing a space that is loved by the one(s) that live there. This is obviously true for Cara. Having lost my mom, also, I know that particular heartache on a personal level; but am able to find comfort in the things in life that I know she would have cherished. I don't know Cara, but it seems that she intuits that her mom would approve of and love the home that Cara has created. That alone makes this home beautiful.

RE: Seating...we feel your pain! Another great and inexpensive look are these acrylic chairs, this installation has them with sheepskins and we have a faux polar bear that we use as well for adding texture (which is washable!). Something fun and different.
