Oval Desk

Pin It

Just want to share with you our favorite item of the day, the oval desk.  It's very rare to find a cool desk, don't you think?  It's even rarer to find one in oval.  Usually they are always rectangular.  Granted, oval is not always the most practical shape, but if you don't have to place your desk against the wall it's a really, really cool look.

Anyway, we love this desk.  It's selling for $1500 and it's so worth it!

Firewood as Decoration

Pin It

Is it cold and wet where you are?  It is here in Sausalito and we just love it.  When it's like this it's so tempting to light up a fireplace isn't it?  Except do you know it's terrible for the environment?  It really is.  The NY Times had an article about that here.

Anyway, we love the idea of using firewood as decoration though.  It's so organic (so overused, we know), but it just adds warmth to a room without having the hassles and expenses, you know?

Here are a couple of pictures:

Modern Architecture Done Right

Pin It

We think it's really hard to do modern decor.  You can't really hide anything. Everything has to be just so--ie, the right color scheme, the right lines, the right spacing...

Here is a sample of some beautiful modern decor from the real estate section of the Wall Street Journal.  This house is made of glass and steel.  We just love the simplicy of it it, don't you?

Dream Life

Pin It

In the past we blogged about our favorite fashion blogs, The Sartorialist and Garance Dore-you probably heard of them? Hugely popular, their photos are gorgeous! It's one of those blogs that we read everyday along with our morning coffee.

Anyway, here is a great article about the couple in New York Magazine if you are interested.

It's so great when a blog with an original idea becomes hugely successful like that. Gives hope to the rest of us, no?
