BUTTERFLY

02 November 2011









Shuffling things around in my living room with the new butterfly coffee table and the case study planter I got from the Modernica Warehouse sale. I was pretty much sold on the hairpin legs on the table. And it's so sculptural. And I couldn't resist on a sweet planter. I planted a sansevieria, aka snake plant, aka mother in law's tongue. Fun names for those suckers, huh? If I can recommend any plant to grow in your home, this is the one. They will thrive even when you neglect it. They're also excellent air purifiers.

And my little Sass&Peril lion pillow returned. My niece grew out of it so I took it back. All she cares for right now are Little Mermaid gizmos and gadgets. And brassy Süsk is enjoying the fresh florals I picked for her.

    @ Anna G. I was thinking of you when I wrote about the mother in law's tongue. I think you'll love them. I bought a teeny tiny one from IKEA 3 years ago and 3 years later, it's grown from 6 inches to 24 inches! And even when it's dead, it keeps its green color. It's like immortal!

  11. You know I love the lion pillow - such a cutie! Seriously, when is your place gonna grace the pages of a glossy? It's well overdue in my humble opinion.

  12. You know I have to comment on how lovely Süsk is! I mean, no bias or anything (cough, eye dart).

    Also I concur with Will above- if a glossy doesn't come your way soon, I say we should create our own sexymagazine to highlight some of the awesome houses (and other amazing shizz) that aren't in magazines- starting with yours, of course. Mmmmm uncoated stock...

  17. Such an amazing space! It's funny I saw this on designlovefest and knew it had to be yours.

  18. Love how the little golden dog is sniffing the flower. :) The new table works perfectly, of course! It's gorgeous. And I've had one of those Eames rockers on my list for so long...but no space for it! You're making me really want it in yellow now.

  21. @ Cassie I named her Süsk. After one of my favorite UK bloggers, Süsk & Banoo.

    @ Will That would be a dream. Thanks for the love, Will.

    @ Süsk Hell ya! Let's do it. I think we will come up with the most awesome mag ever. Uncoated. Hell, newsprint even. ha. I think that would be amazingness! Let's talk...

    @ Al Yay. Thanks for the heads up. So excited to be on DLF!

    @ Eva *Waves hello* Nice to meet you. Thanks for stopping by.

    @ Raneytown You're too sweet. Thanks, Raquel.

    @ Johana Oh, I remember. I loved your ice cream drawing. Thank you so much and hope you had a lovely weekend.

    @ Erin Aww...thank you!

    @ Trude There's always room for a little Eames in anybody's home. The yellow's fun one. I got mine from the Modernica Sale last year.

    @ JenLi :D

    @ Allan It's in some dark corner. Hah. No worries. If I ever ever decide to get rid of it, you're at the top of my list. Been so busy here with so much work. Enjoying daylight savings though. What you been up to?
