in the round circle

i know there is a radio show out there in blogland called 'the skirted roundtable'. for some reason when i have tried to listen, it's in warp speed and everyone sounds like a chipmunk. so i gave up. anyway...here is my skirted roundtable. it's called 'in the round circle'. others might call it a blog(brilliant isn't it?) it's where i discuss things that don't suck and things that do in the design world. let the discussion commence!!! (said with great passion and drama)

here we have a beautiful kitchen from airspaces. i love it's simplicity. i also love the mirror tiles and marble counters (notice how they go all the way down). but it would be on the edge of cold cliff without that wood island and mouth watering tile floor.
also from airspaces. can we talk about how ridiculous this chandelier is? and when i say ridiculous i mean awesome. also i am not sure what that gold thing is on the wall, but it appears to be some sort of sconce. if this is so, it is REALLY cool. if it's just art with some sunlight behind it then it's just pretty cool. either way this is some entry. like wilbur is sooooome pig!


truman capote=wierdly fabulous. notice the lemon tree..or is it a kumquat tree? also cat figurines.

is there a more perfect suitcase anywhere?



this is an overall very pretty color palette. could someone please tell me where i can make my own color palette?



my cool dad is going to make these side tables for me. i am very excited b/c they will a. be custom b. be from my dad and c. hold a lot of stuff.



also, my beautiful and sweet and talented neighbor alison is going to make me this piece of pottery. in your face kelly wearstler.


and a show of hands- who damn near had an orgasm when they saw this fabric wall at anna spiro's?
discuss in the round circle....

Ok, my new dream in life is to have a fabulous, enormous French chandelier with hot pink shades. The end.

PS. One day I will have a kumquat tree and cat figurines like Truman. We will all read by the light of the chandelier.

i loved the anna spiro fabric! and hella jealous of your dad and neighbor. My dad can't glue together two toothpicks and my nearest neighbors are really good at smoking pot, but making me a pot would be out of the question. i love the quirky weird truman capote room... i am slightly fascinated with him and his kumquat tree.

So excited about your Dad making those night stands for you. Please send him my way next!!!

I am so glad that I can finally comment on your page without having to close my eyes from the life-scarring exorcist pics from yesterday.

i saw that movie in college and did not sleep for a month and showed with my back to the wall, facing outward. Please, do not do that to me again!!! ;)

If you were serious about color palettes, you should check out kuler. You can create your own, or just look at the 14,000 palettes made by other people. Viola:

Truman Capote is weird---and yet, I love him. How is it that you talk all these people into making you fabulous things? I need to get myself some new friends/family. Or just be more persuasive...

I love that chandelier with the hot pink shades! It is truly awesome!!!

You know, I have a lemon and a lime tree that are about 3 years old now, and I keep WAITING for them to grow fruit, but no..... and they're even bigger than Capote's!! Not sure what I'm doing wrong.
