Retro deco and design


We're taking a peak inside Decorating and Design by Jacqueline Inchbald, Cassell and Company, London, 1971. Jacqueline was the founder and principal of the Inchbald School of Design and Fine Arts in London and an arbiter of taste for the time. Rooms from all the best designers including David Hicks are included in its pages. Unfortunately most are in black and white but those that are in colour shriek colour. Perhaps engraved glass panels surrounding your toilet and bidet is just the inspiration you have been looking for.

Third World Bazaar

Yesterday I went to the Third World Bazaar - a huge barn out in Manotick where for 6 weeks in the fall they sell products from all over the world. Clothing, jewelry, housewares, carpets, Christmas decorations, furniture....and everything is reasonably priced and absolutely gorgeous. Knowing shortly I will have a new kitchen to furnish, I went a little nuts with purchases. It didn't help that they have beautiful kilims for GREAT prices. I had to bring a great big one home because the price was too good to pass up ($155) although I have no clue where it will go. I picked up some baskets, a table runner, placemats, a little teak opium table, 3 kilims and 4 kilim pillows (some went to my boyfriend's apartment). Check here for details. In the end, I'm ecstatic with my purchases. They are open one more weekend after this one so folks in Ottawa, you've got time to check it out.

Jo's place


Went trawling through the thrift stores today and found this cane .... um .... drum table/storage box/thingy. It's perfect as a side table for my chair (and was ridiculously cheap). Thought I'd show you what this corner of my home looks like today. Knowing me it won't look like this by next weekend after I've been hunting in the thrift stores again :)

Surprise ..... reading guide!


For no particular reason except to spread the love. Drum roll please ..... it's time for a reading guide! It's the usual story. Some are new and some are just new to me. Others are not in English while some are not quiet all about room porn ;) Whatever they are I enjoy them all. I hope you do too.
