Living rooms with navy blue

I like blue and red in a living room. Tom Scheerer's room, below, looks so refreshing with the white painted staircase.

I also like this room from the most recent issue of Lonny Magazine. It looks comfortable and pretty.

Speaking of living rooms, here's something I found for my own. A set of matching Herendon dressers! I plan to push them together to use as a TV stand. They're already painted a deep navy blue, a color that makes the clean brass hardware pop. 

They'll be in the new space next month!

Three for Thursday

I've accumulated a lot of photos on during this lazy spring of not much blogging. Here are three of my current favorites.


The first two pictures are a little more masculine than is typical for me. I'll end with a flowery pic to soften the post.

Sometimes Craigslist thrills me

Especially when it provides things like this:

It's pretty cute from the back, too.

Good job, Craigslist. Keep up the good work!

New apartment!

It's been a busy month. Our lease is about to expire, so we spent a lot of time apartment searching. A job change has made my schedule busy and unpredictable. And, March 2010 was the wettest on record -- 13 inches of rain! -- so things have been pretty dreary around here.

But things are looking up! The sun is shining, and we even found a new apartment that fit all (well, most) of our requirements. Namely, more space.

So many windows! The softly gleaming floors!! The space!!! Our lease doesn't start until the middle of May, but you better believe I'm already thinking of furniture placement and all the other fun stuff.

It's good to be back!
