have more dinner parties
(that’s my lovely roommate on the left, who made the world’s best spanakopita last night)
I bought the flashcards on etsy a few years ago (from a now defunct shop,) and just framed them a few months ago. Pictures of the rest of the room coming one of these days . . .
This isn’t the best picture, but I had to get that one of me off the top of the page. The painting is almost done in here, and my to do list is currently looking like this:
You can see the before here.
OK, I’m back, and I’ve decided to try to post every day for the next month even if it means that all I get up is a lame short post. In this spirit, in between looking for jobs right now I’m working on reorganzing/cleaning the house, and it really really needs it. Seriously. Check out the current state of my dining room:
This room is in the process of becoming a more functional office (right now you can see the current desk tucked in the left hand side of this photo) with the idea that it’s going to house a business venture a friend and I have in the works right now. Hint: it has nothing to do with design. More info will be coming on that, but probably not for a few months.
But hopefully in a few weeks I’ll have new photos of this space, which will also probably be changing color. Exciting, right?
I really like these Atelier LZC paper napkins
Having nice paper napkins around is the best, because it doesn’t make me feel like a bad/lazy hostess when we have guests, but I don’t have to launder the cloth ones after people leave.
We call that a win-win situation.
check them out, along with a step by step guide, over at AT:SF
As you can see, the color is really bright (I’ve used this same color, Pratt & Lambert Capri Grotto 25-7 in semi-gloss, in the bathroom and on the kitchen peg board before) But when they’re closed the glass really subdues it a lot. I’m happy with the results – it draws more attention to the built ins, and is kind of a pop-y surprise when you open them.
Now I’m thinking about the bookshelves in the living room. Red perhaps?
