Something in the air must be telling me it's time get ready for summer. Another fabulous outdoor chair design. Supernatural from Moroso by designer Ross Lovegrove.

The loveliest chairs ever

Even though I'm not actively looking for outdoor furniture, these pretty chairs have captured my rapt attention. (Re-Trouve by Patricia Urquiola)

Scenes from the weekend

The final Round Top project completed - assembling the swag chandelier from the antique lanterns. We are considering whether the lanterns need candles. Not sure yet. I added some sweetness to some jars by adorning them with a simple bow and a charm from my childhood charm bracelet, and enjoyed a beautiful rose in a jar converted to a basket with a wire loop. Weekend simplicity.

I've been going crazy for these industrial lamp pendants and reproduction carbon filament bulbs. Primitive design combined with the romance of an earlier era. What could be more perfect to illuminate a small corner of the world?

Scenes from the weekend

One scene, actually. This single project consumed a significant portion of my weekend. We purchased the old decorative wood panel in Round Top, and more recently, a handful of assorted batik fabrics. Stretched the fabric over frames, then measured, marked and hung. Despite the rustic simplicity of pattern and hue, the large grouping provides a modern edge to our decor.

One more thing crossed off the list.

Scenes from the weekend

household projects, wedding preparation, garden projects. where did the weekend go?


New window treatments in Cristy's office to replace the tired draperies there previously. A clean look with the roman shades and an attempt at creating a transom look with the upcycled cabinet doors.
