James Leland Day is a stylist, a REALLY talented stylist. The following photos from his website are so mesmerizing....it makes me want to gather all my knick knacks and reorganize them into picture-perfect displays like these. But it would never look nearly this good.
I love the idea of pages torn from a vintage book taped above the bed. Love their time yellowed look and the haphazard (but obviously well planned) arrangement. From the work of Sacha Dunn. More on this fabulous stylist just below.
Mads of BunkaMadison blog wrote to us over the weekend to contribute to our 'dog on a chair or some piece of furniture' theme. The photos she sent of her pooch Eva (her dog-child) were too cute not to post, so they are below. But she also sent a link to her Flickr photos, where she has included many photos of her totally gorgeous home in Liguria, Italy. I HAD to post those as well. Especially after I heard she built the kitchen with her own hands, got into a fight with the architect in the planning stages, and had a builder who was on crack so in the end she ended up designing it, project-managing it, and finishing the build herself (hence the kitchen). I love it all, such a wonderful space and OMG that view!!!! Her home is a work in progress so be sure to check her blog for updates. (Thanks Mads!)
