ta-da

after a lovely lunch (at lovely day) with the ladies of hable i purchased a yard of "fig" in chocolate to reupholster (well, staple gun) my rocking chair. thank you to everyone for their two cents on the fabric project. i'm really happy with the results, and i think ac will like it, too.

pattern therapy

if there's one thing i love it's a good patterned fabric. so this week i decided to make my daily product columns at hg all about products that showcase colorful printed fabrics. there are 5 under $100 and 5 that are a bit of a splurge but either way it's a big old' dose of color and pattern. click here to check them out. [the john robshaw napkins and madeline weinrib pillow are my favorites]

real homes

i've been so inspired by all of the ideas i've heard from readers after the kitchen post. d*s reader katya usvitsky sent over these shots of some of her own kitchen diy and reupholstery diy. i love the way she used branches as towel bars- it's such a nice, soft touch. always fun to see people taking design into their own hands...

celery

i've mentioned celery before but i wanted to share this gorgeous picture they sent over. good product photography is such a bonus for designers and this one's a beauty. all of celery's furniture is made from sustainable bamboo and comes with this fun little bamboo mallets to help you disassemble them. click here for more info.

other people's homes

one of my favorites things about seeing photos of other people's homes is seeing objects or furniture you have displayed in a different way. the other day dooce (my online hero) posted a photo of wayne payte's bird print in her home and i had a mini dance party in my living room. aside from having a geek-out moment and realizing we had the same print, it was fun to see how she displayed it and to see it in a different light. it's always so fun to see objects come to life when they're recontextualized.
