Bargains!

After 8736 hours of lying around — working very hard at not breaking anything (i.e., the baby) — I’m terminally bored. I’ve already spent $39 on Kindle books (seriously Amazon, how can an ebook be more than twice as expensive as the paperback edition??? HOW?!), watched Downton Abbey 6x, and attempted to telekinetically sweep my floor, which so far has only resulted in a massive headache.

Thank the stars for lovely Billie Ayers of Dessin Fournir, who came to my rescue after this post asking for info on alternate colorways for some Rose Cumming wallpaper. Not only did she create an account for me so I could feast my eyes on a bevvy of delicate shades, she also directed me to an online outlet that’s carrying discontinued Rose Cumming fabrics and wallpapers.

Finally. Something important to do.

Important taffeta moire wallpaper to ogle.

Important uber trad wallpaper to contemplate… I smell a comeback.

Oh and did I mention cheap? Like $30/roll. And then there are the fabrics… all manner of velvets and damasks, chintzes and toiles, elephants and parakeets. And then there is Martine.

Oh, Martine… important unhealthy obsession. I want a pair of wingback chairs in this fabric to tone down all the chrome and brass and Italian glass I have going on. I hope the pattern is huge.

But wait! There are more important bargains to see. My favorite California boy Christian May of Maison 21 has curated a super sale selection at Joss and Main. Behold some of my faves:

Triad floor lamp.

Deco room divider.

 

Marilyn leather arm chair.

Grand marble obelisk.

Basically I like anything that looks like it came from Soane, but costs far, far less.

Sorry the pics are so wee — I didn’t feel like opening photoshop today. Apparently my fingers are exhausted from internet shopping and turning Kindle pages.

Now if you will excuse me, a new shipment of wallpaper samples just arrived so I must tape them all over the walls like a crazy lady.

What’s new, right?

Note to Self: Do Not Misspell “Rose Cumming” Whilst Using the Google

Seriously. Do. Not. Do it. I warned you. If you actually type it correctly, you will be treated to a panoply of, ahem, somewhat less prurient wonders. Although not exactly XXX, Rose Cumming‘s wallpapers, fabrics, and interiors, do hold a distinct sex appeal of their own.

Her Zebrine wallpaper has gotten a fair amount of interest in recent years, but I’m actually more interested in the starry Galaxie prints (how cool would that be in a dark colorway for an unexpected kid’s room?), and Sheryl — a tufty hot number. The only problem is that RC’s prints are to the trade, available through Dessin Fournir, and I have been to lazy to set up an account.

Anyone know if tufty time comes in colorways other than pink?

Yes, I know pink tufted walls would be cute in a girl’s room. Sorry, but I can’t go there. I may or may not have been traumatized by pink walls as a smallish child (and teenager).

Sidenote: thanks to everyone who left a comment on Friday’s post, or shot me a lovely email filled with well wishes. Still hanging in there.

Yes. Just like that.
