I remember seeing this place on Apartment Therapy. I love it. Love the organic elements like the stones, branches and coral. I also really love the Buddha statues and the hanging lantern.

But..please tell me that an animal was not killed making that throw on the Eames chair. I just couldn’t bear a dead animal skin juxtaposed with the Buddha. I am naive, I don’t really know if sheep are killed when we make throws out of their fur.

I am sensitive to this issue right now because I can’t believe the popularity of skins and anteliers.

I am sure this must be faux. In any event your place is beautiful.

Kristen Henderson says:

Oh no. Peggy, aren’t you the one who tried to stir up debate about animal hides, etc. over on Apartment Therapy?
I find it funny that you would have a problem with a sheepskin hide draped over a chair made of leather but not have a problem with the leather.
Cows and sheep are not killed just for their hides. Also, the majority of antlers used in modern home designs are naturally shed antlers. I see antlers on the floor of the woods when I go on walks.
This is a gorgeous home and thanks to the homeowner for sharing. I hope this blog can stay a positive place. If you don’t like leather get involved with PETA. I’m not being facetious, but you should put your energy and aversion to animal products to a good use.

I agree with Kristen, Same person came onto my site bashing my tables, simply because i use leather. Well i’m no vegetarian either.

peggy says:

Kristen, sorry for the offense – dead animals on people’s floors gross me out. I do have a problem with leather and thanks for the suggestion, I will contact PETA. I absolutely love this home and I believe I have said so many times. I defended it last year when it got bashed in the color contest at Apartment therapy. I was just asking about the sheep skin, I wasn’t sure if sheep were killed. Why is everyone afraid of opinions? I read many opinions contrary to my own and I don’t get upset.

I love decor and I love this site. I don’t like dead animals on floors. I love flickr and I love looking at people’s pictures of dogs and cats. I am mystified at how we revere one animal and accept the killing of another so we can walking on it. That’s all.

Jennifer, I have never visited your blogspot (although what a cute name) it wasn’t me who bashed your tables.

Kim and Jo – sorry to hijack your space, it won’t happen again.

No worries peggy. And everyone should feel as though they can speak freely on this blog. Can’t we all just get along?
