Merry Christmas!

Posted on Sat, 25 Dec 2010 by midcenturyjo

Kim and I are so fortunate. Everyday we turn on our computers and do what we love. We share the beauty that we find out there on the web. Beautiful rooms, beautiful homes and in return we have met beautiful people. Dear readers thank you so much for visiting everyday, for your emails, your submissions and your support. To the talented designers, architects, stylists and photographers who share their work a huge thank you. We are in awe of what you create. I wish that was my Christmas tree above but it belongs to Australian architect Scott Weston. (Thanks for the shot Scott and the new work I’ll be featuring next week.)  I ran out of time this year to decorate for the holidays but I can daydream that Scott’s tree miraculously appears in my living room.

I couldn’t make up my mind which image to use for this post. Swedish stylist Mikael Beckman sent this photo of his tree. Outdoors, deep in snow and stylishly simple. I’m daydreaming of this tree too but not miraculously transported into my living room… at least not with the snow. Now if you are reading this on Christmas Day go away, eat turkey, ham or prawns, laugh with your family and nap on the sofa after too much food. I’ll be back on Boxing Day with a reading guide. Might even do one on the other days too. Maybe not. Might be snoozing on that sofa. Merry Christmas!!!

See what Santa got for me (OK I fess up it was I!) on my page. Trouble is they won’t be turning up until after the weekend. Too big to come down the chimney?

Happiest of Holidays to you two!

Thanks for providing the design junkies of the world another year of daily fixes.
