to the hearth and home of the booklings.

so, as i am living in this beautiful new space, i am just continually inundated with what i want to do to improve it...and i am coming to terms with it being a continual process. (we both know i am way too task to be good at the process)! i am hoping to be done by 2009 - so let's pull for that!

for now, i am attempting to focus direction towards the kitchen a bit (though so much is needed to help - and it's a question of money at this point, not inspiration).

i found this kitchen space on apartment therapy while perusing one of their house tours.

side note:
i love, but LOVE house tours! (and i am guessing,
my little voyeristic nymph, that you love them too!)
and may/may not dream about photographing my own house someday
(hey that would be oodles of fun to do together!)
as it stands, i SHOULD certainly be doing
a before/after shoot of the apartment now.

anyway, here is that kitchen storage idea!

p.s. monsieur bookling will stick up his snobby minimalist nose at this, but i think it's just so cute, whimsical, and FRENCH!

but back to the living room: i still need to finish of the space with some details...both of which you know a little somethin' about!

what is it? drum roll please.....

Plants and Pillows!!

I need a date to Molbacks, first of all! But I think I want two or three hanging plants to start.

I need four pillows. Two for living room, two for bedroom. For the living room, green/pink/brown/blue (using my chair and my soul as inspiration). Bedroom i am thinking an orange/brown/white motif...and i found this gal's pillows (sorry for cheating on you) on etsy.

it's totally sold. sad. serves me right for looking at anyone else's pillows except yours!

i have less of a direction about the pillows in the living room.

i also need some artwork for the wall above our head - did you see the curtains monsieur bookling put up there as well? it looks quite nice. i would love to put up some of this girl's stuff, a new artist i came across and now don't remember where, but look!

Lena Wolff

i think she saw our soul and painted it.

because maybe you didn't know but
it seems our souls keep mixing
and golly, it's getting gorgeous.

  1. Thanks for posting Lena Wolff's art! I am now on task to find out how to purchase a piece.

  2. Oh the beauty! Lena's work is indeed GORGEOUS and she has now totally been added to my roster of inspirational artists!

    And I love that kitchen - and the fact that you called it whimsical and then loved it yourself (your child seems to be beaming these days). However I know Mr Dove and I know Monsieur Bookling, and I know that kitchen just might give them the shivers (ah to be yoked with a minimalist!). Ah well, c'est la vie, no?
