Although the house had nice old doors when we bought it ( one of the few things worth saving ) we wanted to enlarge the door openings when we raised the ceiling heights along with adding more doors. In a moment of renovation good luck we came across a stash of beautiful old doors that were bigger then the doors we had and enough to go around. As old doors often are they were covered with years of paint. We spent the better part of the fall stripping them. * disclaimer… we stripped some of them, we still haven't gotten to the bedroom and closet doors.
Here I find myself in the middle of the dreary winter days and need some brightening up and these flower diy's are just the thing. After spending an afternoon being distracted from work by looking at flowers on pinterest I decided to do something productive… or at least dream of it.
NDI makes the most realistic artificial flowers, so I spent a bit more time scouting ideas that could easily be made from them.
This flower chandelier in the home of amaze balls designer Paola Navone is freakin amazing! I'm telling you everything this woman does is stunningly cool.
Around my house books are everyones favorite gifts, hence the constant need for additional bookshelves. Despite the lack of shelf space we keep collecting and this fall has been a banner time for new and fantatsic books, especially in the design and food categories.
We are foodies down to my yougest daughters new found baking skills. Our favorite way to spend a day is a nosh-fest, either at home or in a city going from place to place. So despite the groaning shelves a new cookbook is always a welcome addition especially one as warm and inviting as the Kinfolk Table book.
