love these.
(tutorial on d*s)

makes me want to do a faux-Victorian photo album in paper frames, maybe mounted on black paper.

yes, ma'am

(i don't know where this is from. my friend emailed it to me.)
there is so much to love here:
1. silhouette painting
2. silhouette painting in front of bookshelves
3. the buttons on the tufted chair are made of a different fabric than the chair is. so good!

lemon fresh


i hate matchy-match. drives me completely nuts.
my husband loves matchy-match. if everything came in sets he would be the happiest man on earth. some of the biggest design blights on my house have come from compromising on matchy-match.

we've all seen about a million sets of mis-matched chairs painted into a set. what makes this set work exceptionally well is how radically different the shapes of the chairs are. they match, but they are not even kind of matchy-match.
