hideout

051409_coop01
i'm scared to go home.  if this is what my house looked like, i would not be feeling so.

brian is working on the roof today, and on changing the somethingorother in his land rover.  when he does activities like these, our house is the casualty.  particularly the doorknobs, which become covered in grease, the kitchen sink, and the floor.

i'm at the shop, painting.  (i'm closed on mondays).  it's really too cold to paint but i'm pushing my luck.  many things have turned fabulously red, and it's only 12:00.

That is such an inviting looking room. I like the shape of that sofa-couldn't live with that oatmeal colour though- and the way the furniture is arranged for conversation.

If I remember correctly, this is a room by designer Robin Bell. I think it appeared in House Beautiful. I tore the entire spread out for my files. The whole house has the same warm, elegant, timeworn appeal.

So, I live in Raleigh and have been dying to get over to your store. My bestie and I went yesterday but, argh! you are closed on Mondays.

I wonder if you saw us peeking in your windows? We will be back. Your store is devine.
