Hallway Before and After
- Published on Sunday, 15 April 2012
Last time I left off I hadn’t shown any progress on my hallway.
Well I’ve painted it ‘Chocolate Froth’ with a steel blue stripe at head height. I didn’t like that blue at first, but with the art hanging I like it a bit more.
I moved my art around, finally hung up my Wilco concert poster, and framed...
Boring Hallway on Apartment Therapy
- Published on Monday, 02 April 2012
Hello there! My boring hallway is on Apartment Therapy as a ‘Good Question.’
Check out the page to see what Apartmetn Therapy readers would do with my hall. There are some great suggestions, and a few hit the nose on what I decided to do.
I painted it this weekend. You’ll have to wait a few more days to see...

What do you think? I just got this from 20×200.
It’s a little brash, but I like the colors.

I’m back! I bet you didn’t even notice that I was gone for nearly two months, did you?
It’s a rainy day and Brentan’s out of town and I am here thinking of things to change at home while I’m alone. My biggest peeve right now? My boring blah white hallway. See exhibit A:
I like the prints that are...

Happy Valentine’s Day! I’ll be out celebrating with my sweetheart at one of my favorite restaurants tonight.
I hope you can celebrate love in all of its many forms somehow today. I’m lucky to have a lot of it in my life now and always, and I hope you are too.

How to clean cast iron
My favorite pans to cook in are my cast iron skillets. I use them everyday. They are the most versatile and indestructible cookware that I know of. They are the best non stick type of pan as well…better than any of the most expensive teflon type pans in fact. They also add a bit of iron to our fo...
A Brief History of: Pendant Lamps

If you’ve read any of my posts, you know that I love vintage and vintage-inspired interiors, especially mid-century and California ones. After writing the post about how everything is new again from the Edward Scissorhands movie stills, I’m inspired to look a little more in depth into vintage and vintage inspired...
Painting Brass – A Tutorial
- Published on Tuesday, 17 January 2012
This picture from Potterybarn made me gasp yesterday. “Eureka!” I said to myself and ran to my basement to fetch a brass hook that I bought at an estate sale last summer. I liked the hook but I wasn’t too fond of the brass finish. I had it slated as a door or robe hook but this bathroom photo made me think...
Who are you!?

Yes. I know. It’s been over a week since the last post. Bad blogger. And honestly, I don’t really have a good reason for not posting.
Except I’ve gotten into the Downton Abbey craze. It has sucked me in and taken up hours of my time this past week. It’s been lovely. And full of intrigue.
Things in my...
