Pictures

September 16, 2008

I have a problem with hanging pictures, and I have the blank walls to prove it. So I’ve been collecting inspirations for the day I get brave enough to pick up my hammer and actually hang something. Thought I’d share them with you, in case any one else has my problem.

I really like Marc Krusin’s wool rugs. I just can’t decide if I like the ‘lines’ better or the ‘squares’

I love this wallpaper I just saw at Designsponge, by Fern Living. If you have more money than me than you’ll get to use it, I have to keep looking.

Tin Can Wall

I was just blown away by this wall with tin can tops applied to it over at Apartmenttherapy. The creative re-use was for a bedroom suite decorated by White Webb in this year’s Kips Bay Decorator Show House in New York.

Livability

March 5, 2008

I love design that is open and clean yet still livable. For example, HGTV showed a home that was modern and open but has sectional sofas that pull out into two single beds that can be pushed together to make one larger bed. The flat screen TV is suspended from the ceiling in the middle of the space and swivels 360-degrees to be viewed from anywhere in the apartment. There’s entire wall of closets for storage, and when desired the bedroom can be sectioned off with a double curtain. One layer is a sheer curtain, which creates a nice soft see-through effect; the second layer is a special light and sound-blocking solid curtain. There’s also a office area that can be closed off when not in use.
