bringing the outside in

i would love to frame some of my photographs


wouldn't it be cool to bring some of the outside in?

some people would choose grassy landscapes or mountains

i think i'd want pix of my neighborhood:


love me


yes? no?

i'll take mine with a splash of lime

at the end of the day, the civilized thing to do is have a drink. back in the day, they had bars inside their homes. but what if you want to sit on the couch and drag your drink over? it had better be on wheels.

i have been looking at bar carts. i can't afford a fancy bar cart, so i may end up using a TV tray table, but a girl can dream, can't she?

here we go…

vintage. french. 1930s. from deco dame.

vintage. lucite. mid-century. very palm beach. via 1st dibs.

new. steamer-trunk inspired. elaborate. heavy, rich. from crate & barrel.

new. whimsical. summery. perfect by my nonexistent pool. from the conran shop.

italian, 1950s, "lacquered goat skin." wait, what? via fat chance modern.

vintage. 1930s thomas edison ediphone, converted for use as a beer cabinet. via fyndes.

bold. shiny. aluminum. new. expensive! from velocity.

lol. 1950s "jackass." via ruby lane.

gorgeous. chic. retro, yet new. SOLD OUT. from restoration hardware.

industrial. tough. business-like. made from an unused, repurposed 1950s medical chart cart. seen on etsy.

i don't know if i like this one or not. thinking. not that i can afford it, even on sale. restoration hardware.

elegant. refined. compact. 1920s-inspired. from simply tray tables.

beautiful, clean, airy. from restoration hardware.

in the groove

cb2 sells record album frames, which means the task at hand is selecting great/meaningful album covers.

some we actually own:

some that seem like they would make nice, framed art (via girl in the green dress and vintage vanguard):

Additionally… loving these brazilian album covers from the '60s and '70s, from colour lovers:

decisions, decisions.

opp: other people's places

new york magazine's home design issue has some good stuff in it.

i like david alhadeff's pink pink walls.

I'm ridiculously jealous of richard christiansen, because he lives in a hotel -- something i have always wanted to do -- and because his office looks pretty wacky/cool too.

jason wu's apartment: not enough color!
