Hope everyone is squeezing out the last juices of this gorgeous summer weekend, at least here in the Northwest anyway. Our day is full of cleaning house, wallpaper removal, volunteering at the Mercer Island Farmer’s Market (come say hi!) and dinner with neighbors. Take a few minutes to also enjoy these wonderful links from our Weekend Show and Tell.
From the man who started it all, Frank Lloyd Wright, Fallingwater is celebrating its 75th anniversary. Is there anything more lovely? I recently finished a novel by T.C. Boyle (bought at my home away from home Island Books) entitled ‘The Women’ about FLW and the many (crazy) women in his life. Man, that guy had it rough, I tell you.
One of the most gorgeous dining rooms I’ve seen in a long time from Rajiv Saini in India. The house is situated next to the Ganges, and while I am not a huge fan of the exterior, I think this dining room and the wood slatted ‘walls’ are something close to brilliance. Plus I would kill for that dining room furniture. Sigh.
I think sometimes I wander off the MCM trail into the contemporary modern trail, just to see how the other half lives. In that vein, I found two pieces I love: these wooden tumblers (which at $57 each is a just plain WOW price tag) and this outdoor ceramic sponge light. Gorgeous inspiration.
And finally, thinking that after the living and dining room wallpaper comes down, we need to tackle the wallpaper monster that is our bedroom, I find myself continually drawn to this combination of yellow and gray. Apartment Therapy did a post on the bumble bee-esque combination of black and yellow, which is a bit too much for me. But yellow and gray…yum.
