OMG! Only 6 months!


We have only been blogging for 6 months and look at the monster we have created!!! Kim wanted to celebrate with a photo of a naked man jumping out of a birthday cake. This is the best I could find. Thanks to all of you, our readers. We are having so much fun we'd do this just for ourselves but doing it for you guys is even more special.

We'll be doing some house keeping in the next couple of weeks. High on our priorities is updating our blog roll. We know there are lots of wonderful blogs out there in the blogosphere that we haven't included. Here's your chance to let us know about your blog. Email us with your link , we'll take a look and if we think we'll make a beautiful couple we'll swap links. Remember we are looking for interior design/house/decor orientated blogs.

Once again thanks for all your wonderful support over the last hectic but rewarding 6 months. I bought the cake so drinks are on Kim!

Melander Architects


I love the work of San Francisco based Melander Architects. Whether modern, regional vernacular, adaptive re-use or historic conservation they believe that their most important skill is their ability to listen. The design process is a dialogue between client and architect.

Rustic and modern


I LOVE this house featured on Shoot Factory. The blend of rustic and modern elements really makes this home come alive and is a treat for the senses. This is an ideal demonstration of how mixing different styles can work as long as there is some cohesiveness, such as the colour palette of neutrals and deep warm colours in this case.

Tuft love

Rosali emailed me the other day with an interesting request:
"Lately, I've noticed that beautiful green tufted chairs and sofas have shown up regularly on your site. I'm a big fan of tufted furniture and have several pieces but none green. I think that a post with a grouping of those green tufted pieces would make many people (or at least me) stand back in awe."
Sounded like a pretty simple request. I think this photo was Rosali's inspiration:


I too have a love for tuft, especially since purchasing a lime green tufted bench. It can make furniture that is drab and simple look glamorous. But after looking through TONS of photos, I couldn't find many green tufted pieces. As a result, I've added some photos that have beautiful tufted pieces that are other colours as well.
