Design Foundations

There are just some design elements that will never go out of style. So classic, so elegant, so....so, ethereal they stand the tests of trendiness and time. I truly believe, without these foundations, we would not have our Restoration Hardwares, our Pottery Barns, or even our Ballard Designs. So today, let's take a step back and pay homage to Design Classics....It's lovely, but it's also functional - I bet the pipes never freeze over in this house!

The Look: Shag Colorway: Camo - Why vacuum when dirt just "disappears?"

It's a recession, people - protect your investments.

Velvet Tiger Painting - It's like the Mona Lisa, it's eyes follow you wherever you go.


Happy April 1st, ya'll!! ;)~

Ha ha very funny. My MIL had new carpeting put in and the installers mentioned that you just that week they had installed shag in 3 homes. I guess it's back.

I am laughing hysterically! Why would anyone think it's okay to leave the plastic on the lampshade?
