Dreams via Plain English...

I love them all — but of course I'd have to dirty them up a bit.

Yes! Now this is what I call a gallery wall...

Lately I've been preoccupied with gallery walls.
Thanks to these photographs from World of Interiors
(photographs by Ricardo Labougle), it is now
an obsession.

Brinson Studio...

Loving this Design Sponge photo of Susan and Willian Brinson's
NYC studio/home. The black walls, the 100-bulb DIY chandelier,
factory carts and dollies, and a fantastic gallery wall — they all
work together to create a space full of quirky NVR charm.

Busy preparing for Finderskeepers' Summer Sale...

Accomplished a lot today thanks to a little brother
that doesn't mind being bossed around (thanks Zachary!).
This SALE is going to be HUGE!

James "Ford" Hunniford's Weekend Home...

In Hunniford's Bridgehampton living room, antique
painter's stools serve as cocktails tables. The Early American
nautical buoys are one of my favorite touches in this room.
I am ready to move in.
The Robert Rauschenberg prints in the living room
are beyond dynamic.
Can one pack his bags and type at the same time.
Early-20th-century French diagrams for
light fixtures are displayed in the dining room.
When will breakfast be served?
Watercolor paintings casually displayed on
clipboards hang in a hallway.

With so many great things about this bedroom, where
do I begin? The 19th-century Italian metal bed?
The postman's cabinet? That fantastic Klismos chair?

This bed is going to be so comfortable. I just know it.

Vintage oars hang above antique monastery beds
in a guest bedroom.

If I had to, I guess I could relax here as well.
