Cool Cats

A double dose of dastardly just opened a can of whoop ass on me, and I fear the only way to survive Monday + a face melting high of 108 degrees is to… hide. One of these places should do.

I actually have a super busy week of shopping with the inlaws coming up, and I’m hoping to shower you with progress pics of my own home as well as theirs very soon. I promise things are happening, but when it’s 108 degrees outside, things just happen verrrrrrry slooooooooowlllllly.

Later, taters. Have a great Monday!

Wood on White

Since this is my second post out of three with wood as the theme you dudes shouldn’t have to do too much complex mathematics to figure out that I’m going au natural these days.  I know I know, i really want to slap myself upside the head for glancing more favorably towards some hum-drum wood table rather than a gold panther sculpture, but what if I told you I’ve been looking at the gold panther for 3 years and that I promise not to get rid of any of my other brass?  What if I promised that rather than the dark wood rooms you dudes chose to ignore 2 weeks ago, instead I show you wood surrounded by a sea of white light?  Can we be friends then?

Ok, I’m going to start with this open-air shower because I’m pretty sure you would have to be legally insane not to like it.  Look at that lovely teak floor against those white walls. Ok, if you do not like the counter tops you do not need to be committed, I don’t particularly like them either but consider myself fit for life on the outside.

I’m going to say a big, fat yes to everything in this room with the exception of one item, can you guess what I’m leaving off my wish list?  Um, it’s not that killer table

white + wood.  yes amazing. wish i lived here. blaa blaa blaa

This styling is kooky and really only appropriate for the photo shoot (someone remind me which overseas shelter mag this was) but you have to admit that the space is amazing and we would all collectively give our left arms to live here.  PS I feel the same way about the space in the photo above I just had a moment of laziness.  sue me.

This Kenyan artist’s studio balances white + wood to perfection.  Anyone who’s questionable on this one:  stop what you’re doing and look around the space you’re in right now.  This space is awesome.  The end. (btw I’m typing in the world’s ugliest kitchen right now, so this photo is pretty much drool-central for me)

I do not need to insult the perfection that is this space with my stupid commentary.

Kisses to you all bros

PS welcome back erin!

Still Alright With White

Every once in a while I catch myself totally aware of my love for a trend.  I’ll be completely enraptured with a color or a style and will go ape-shit crazy hunting it down and buying it up well aware, albeit sadly, that the love affair will end in one or two short seasons.

I’ve been pretty whack-a-doodle crazy about white walls for a while.  I keep waiting for it to pass, hesitant to paint yet another room in my house white, wondering what will come next.  Well, apparently next up is white.  Yep, 2 years into my love affair with crisp walls, I renewed my trend-vows when I stumbled upon the interiors of Nacho Polo.  That’s Nacho Polo Spanish designer, not to be confused with Nacho the Polo player from Argentina, who’s hotty hotness was featured in this month’s Elle Decor.

Let’s see if you all are still smitten with white as well:

Ok, so this may be the meeting ground for every single trend of 2009 (hello bust and metallic gold tile) but you can’t fight me on the awesomeness of this space.  You just can’t.

I am a fan of monochromatic texture.  Especially if it’s white and anchored by a sexy black lamp at the end of the hallway.

There’s that bust again.

Prey tell, why would you paint your walls any other color with that sort of architectural detail and groovy view?

This must be the room we were seeing at the end of the white hallway.  And this is a list of things I love:  those chairs, that candelabra.  Lovelovelove.

For those of you who need a little more pattern mixed in with your white (I’m guilty of this a-plenty) Nacho brings stripes to the game.

And what better color to accent your large scale soft core artwork?  Yep, you got it.

So, what do you say?  Are you dudes still down with white?

The White Album

So far 2010 is shaping up to be craptacular. This does not bode well for the next 10 FREAKING YEARS, does it? Let’s recap the already long list of stupid stuff that has happened in this very new year: the entire nation has been living in a subzero meat locker. The Hunny, Baby Ike and I, have been passing around a disgusting cold. I am on a no sleep plan, thanks to Ike’s first tooth. Because I’m exhausted, every night I scarf down a bowl of ice cream with hot fudge about 3 seconds before I go to bed. The scale refuses to even register my weight in the morning — it just laughs. Oh, and the cat puked on our rug in the middle of the night, for the 854th time this month. Aren’t you jealous? Don’t you wish you were me? SAY YOU WISH YOU WERE ME.

Yeah, it could be a lot worse, but I don’t really want to hear about context or perspective or any other gross thoughtful stuff today. Instead, I’ve been fantasizing about painting everything in my house white, and getting all white furniture, and all white accessories. It’s my new happy place, where it’s clean and fresh and everything matches, and there is no orange puke or chocolate sauce, and everybody sleeps all night long.

white bedroom

Yeah, that’s what I’m talking about. (Remodelista)

all white room

I used the google to find this, therefore I have no source info. What? You think I shouldn’t occasionally resort to googling my post material? I don’t have time to read blogs ALL day. Update — thanks to Nicole for letting me know this room was designed by Alexander van Berge!

all white room

Is that sofa inflatable, or is it just me? (Per Ranung)

all white room

This room is so anti maximalist, but I am in sweet sweet love. Even the buildings across the way are white. (Francois Halard)

all white room

I don’t know where this came from, and those clothes are really buggin, but hot damn! White just photographs so beautifully.

white bedroom

So. restful. can’t. keep eyes open.

white bedroom

Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz. (Marie Claire Maison)

all white room

Om me padme hum a zoom zoom, just shake your rump! Uh, that’s totally not where I meant to go with that. I just got a little overexcited thinking about all that white. (Living Etc)

all white room

Get out of my room, fugly brown boxes.

white room ugly

How not to do a white room. I want to punch that DREAM banner in the face and rip that stupid Z Gallerie pirate chandelier out of the ceiling. Repeat: this room bad. Bad white make Erin angry!

all white room

Ahhhhhhhhhhhhh. Anger level receding. (Remodelista)

white bedroom

Um hmmmm. (Desire to Inspire)

white bedroom

Oh yeah. (From the Right Bank)

white room

Almost disqualified due to a preponderance of off white tones, but so pretty I couldn’t help myself. Whatever. You can’t stop me. I’m high on white. I’m unstoppable. (Style Files)

white bedroom

Pure as the driven snow… and the number one reason I can’t actually have an all white house. (Ohdeedoh)

I think I’m actually feeling better, thank you very much, but now I’m seriously jonesing for more white crack. So tell me, smart, savvy decorating friends: do any of you have white walls? Do you like them? Does white highlight every imperfection — like the dreaded wall cellulite — or does it smooth over the ugly drama? Any particular colors, tips, etc? It seems like great architecture and serious windows are needed to go white, but I’m oh so tempted…

BNO Design

It’s come to my attention, by way of my own observation, that our interior design blog has brought you very little in the way of interior design lately.  I know we’ve shown you some stellar stairs, and lots and lots of updates on my own house but so far as simple, well appointed interiors go, well, I’ve been slacking.  What can I say, I love random crap and I usually force you to look at it.  Today I’m going to set the horse lamps and melting chairs aside and take a lazy stroll through some houses I can’t afford.  I’m pretty sure that everything in these BNOdesign homes is out of my price range, so it fits the bill just fine.  Let’s have a look-see

A west village home:

A home in the Hamptons.  You all have one of these to decorate, right?

Ok, good.  Now I am guilt-free and can return to showing you lightning bolts and sweaters made from dog fur.

Come on back by tomorrow to take an aviary tour of the design world with DC fave, le petit oiseau
