Welcome scandinavian.modern

Jo and I would like to welcome the folks of scandinavian.modern, based in Winnipeg, as our new sponsor. I just love being able to promote Canadians who know a thing or two about great furniture. If you love the mid-century variety, you MUST check them out. I have never seen so much gorgeous rosewood in one place. I think I've changed my mind about teak - rosewood is just stunning!!! Here's a bit about their shop:

"We hand pick and make available primarily original, vintage, mid-century modern, Danish and other Scandinavian furniture. We admire and stock pieces from such designers as Hans Wegner, Arne Jacobsen, Finn Juhl, Børge Mogensen, Kai Kristiansen, Arne Vodder, Ole Wanscher and Hans Olsen. We also stock pieces that may not have been designed by a well known designer but were crafted by elite danish cabinetmakers and are unique and showcase scandinavian functionality and appearance."

Here is a little peek at some of the (*drool*) items they've got in stock. LOOOVE the first one pictured - it's a table and a planter!

Kwinter & Company

Brendan Kwinter-Schwartz's interior design firm in New York is all about creating sophisticated and warm spaces with little touches of glam here and there to spice things up. She clearly loves lucite, animal prints, velvet and mirrors. All I can say about that is YEAH BABY!!!

David Hotson


Time to put the spotlight onto minimalism again. Founded in 1991, New York based firm David Hotson Architect is all about manipulation of spatial volumes, the positive and the negative. Clean minimalist lines are impeccably executed. Nothing is extraneous, nothing jars. Take a closer look at their residential portfolio where slideshows unfold their clever storage solutions.

Retro ramblings


We're still flicking through the pages of House & Garden Guide to Interior Decorating, The Conde Nast Publications London, 1967. It's a treasure trove of retro looks. I'm fascinated by the lattice outdoor rooms and the bravery of pattern on pattern from the era. Most of all I wish I had that playroom as a kid.

Happy birthday lil sis

I have been cleaning the house and doing laundry for a couple hours now and I guess due to my level of boredom, I decided to go find a photo of my younger sister Jen. Today is her 27th birthday, and I thought it would be fun to embarass her with a photo from her youth, but all I could find were photos of her with other family members, or with my twin sister and I. So Jen, happy birthday, and looks like now Julia and I can share your embarassment. :) (Oh, I am almost positive I'm the one on the left).
