A funky apartment in Moscow

Happy Thanksgiving fellow Canadians! I am still trying to recuperate from the massive feast I shared with my family last night (turkey and ALL the fixings, plus 3 types of pie), and somehow I have to get some work done around the house. My paint supplies provided by Farrow & Ball arrived last week for my living room and I am so freaking excited to get started. I went with down pipe in estate emulsion for the walls, down pipe in full gloss for all of the trim (YES! I am painting out the mahogany!) and fireplace, and plummett in estate emulsion for the ceiling. Today husband and I have to deal with the ugly nooks in on either side of the west facing window. All that to say, I have alot to do on this holiday Monday, so I leave you with this really funky little apartment in Moscow via The Village. (Sorry, short on pet entries again this week)

Stair runners

While I contemplate the plethora of projects that eventually need to get done around my house, figuring out what to do with my what-were-the-former-owners-thinking-??? yellow/orange stained floor is always on my mind (seen here, and it's toned down in the photo). And whether or not I can figure out a way to get the floors re-stained while owning too many cats to make it easy, perhaps a stair runner is a good option. Makes hiking up and down them easier on us humans as well as the cats, and would add a fun punch of colour and/or pattern to my pretty fabulous foyer/staircase. So on that note, I thought I would do a stair carpet runner roundup.

Siting on the stairs

I have a thing for sitting on the stairs. It seems Sydney based architect Virginia Kerridge does too.
