Shout out

Wednesday, October 7th, 2009

Über thanks to Apartment Therapy for posting about my DIY plumbing shelves. I can’t take all the credit, I totally just copied the Ace Hotel. BTW, the Ace actually used 1/4″ as opposed to my 1/2″ plumbing pipe…I kind of regret not going smaller…I would go smaller if I did it again.

Here are the other images if you missed them, with some updated stying.

This baby is making the internet rounds!

Jute Rug

Monday, October 5th, 2009

I threw the jute TÅRNBY rug I picked up at Ikea in the living room. The cowhide that was here before ended up in the bedroom.

I like this big Ikea jute rug so far. I think I might want to layer it with a kilim or a white cowhide to break up all the brown naturalness that’s happening.

Like so perhaps…


Or like this, which we’ve all seen – but with way less zebra and expensive beni ouarain rugs…

It’s gotta be that LEATHER y’all.

Medium Brown Leather reigns supreme. I knew it all along.

Maybe a more caramel colored sling was what I wanted originally, but these babies are going to patina nicely and they are soooo very well made.

Thank you Circa50. They are the loveliest.

Oh, and if you are ever in Manchester Center, Vermont be sure to visit the Circa50 store. Looks like it’s in a pretty wicked shopping area. (I didn’t know that Dansk had retail locations…awesome)

Anyone sick of seeing my living room yet? Too bad!
