I was clicking through my bloglines subscriptions just now and this post by Sweet Juniper jumped out at me. Partially because I love photos of abandoned places, but also because one of them stuck out as being so nice…and because I saw it as being filled with so many possibilities.
When you look at this room, what do you see? And what would you do with it? I’d love to make it my “study.” I don’t need a study…but wouldn’t this make a great one?
Head over to his blog to see the other three rooms…
First, let me be transparent in saying that this is a re-post from a great blog All Things Lovely. This guest cottage from Robin Brown that she posted about is absolutely outrageous. How can I be jealous, envious, sad, excited, in love and filled with lust all mixed up in one? I don’t know…but these these photos elicit major emotion in me. I want to be there. I love the owner, and hate her all at the same time (because she’s not me). Is that wrong? *sigh*
Anyways…here’s the house porn.
Do you think Nick will mind if I cheat on him with a pink refrigerator?
Hello Mr. Built-in, please meet my vintage bone china collection. Oh…no…it’s MY pleasure!
Dinner party al fresco? Okay…why not?
I mean…c’mon. Vintage sofa? I don’t love all this kind of fringe normally…but I could prop my feet up on this and eat nachos. No problem.
Welcome to my garden! (ssshhh! This used to be my headboard!)
Too hot outside in the garden? Then let’s hang on the porch and drink some lemonade.
Omg…true love just happened. I hope that Nick isn’t too upset with me. Thanks again to All Things Lovely for sharing these with us [originally].
Nick has been working on a series of motel rooms. I am of course always interested to see interiors of any kind, and for some reason we both share a love of weird motels. These are a few of my favorites of his recent shots.
The Pineapple Motel
The Arns Motel
The Bill White Motel
The Welsh Motel
The Little Big Horn Motel
Now if only he could find a motel that had themed rooms…like “The Prince of Egypt room” or “The Taj Mahal Room.” That is what my voyeuristic soul is hoping for next. All photos by Nick Steever.
Today sfgirlbybay posted about the new “My Deco” tool on the Domino website, and so I headed over there to have a peak. I have to say that I wasn’t optimistic about what I was going to find. Most of the online decorating “tools” are clunky DIY-style visualizers, but this is like an online folder to store all those great images you love. And what’s better, be able to search through other people’s deco files for great stuff that you may have missed. I spent several hours today messing around with it, and found lots of great stuff. Here’s a glimpse of what I’ve started so far.
If you haven’t already been toying with it (which I suspect many of you have since their website got REALLY slow later in the day), then you should go over and test it out. There’s lots of great photos to see!!
