I recognize Gio Ponti's name because he designs amazing tables. Apparently he also did this awesome bathroom in Milan. NYTimes T article here.
Then this desk is super cool, I could make one if I had the right tools... ha.

Captain Kitty

Incredible book, Captain Kitty! I'm giving it to Aubrey for his birthday because he is also a captain.

Someday when I own a dog I will make them a bed like this, only minus the monogram...

Next needlepointing project? and fun shiny nook. Fun.

Finally inspired again! It's the prospect of OWNING a real, albeit tiny, house. So here Shawn, look at this.

Especially the part where they put cacti INTO candlesticks! And the handles and weird lighthouse ceiling lights in the kitchen. And also the windows you like. The end.

This is a swedish houseboat! We could make a shelf like this on the outside of the cabin though.

This couch would be lovely minus the giant buffalo hide. Upon first reflection, it looks rugged and organic BUT I almost gagged after sitting on the one in the Ace Hotel lobby; it's a tangled, dirty mat of pokey fur. Bleghh!

Hunt for Seating

Shawn look at this hanging light (in the first image) and of course the chairs. This is a post for chairs.


These are from Merchant_4 and would be so handy for all Central Park picnics this summer. Yossy why did your birthday pass before I found them?

Ace Hotel

My favorite Ace Hotel is the one in Palm Springs- these curtains would be a great door covering at the shabin.

Felt Lady

So I read this article in the NYT and was all excited to see the woman's work at the ICFF but her booth was a circus. I just wanted to touch the braided rugs! The best part of her apartment is the swing in the living room...

Then this hammock look needs to be replicated in the shed!

Cooper's Beach

Going to the beach was delightful and if it had been hot enough to swim I would have worn this swimming cap!
Some parts of these Hampton-y interiors would work upstate, can't quite figure out which though...

Straw mats mellow out an interior so well, even if it's full of manly modern things. I'm making the mental note. (this is from a 2004 W Magazine, wild...)

Okay okay grey is kind of depressing, this is true. You know what isn't depressing? Dutch doors! and RAINBOWS!

You are always painting your kitchen walls exciting colors so I think you would be able to rock painted cabinets as well, yeah?
And THEN these guys put a fedora on their dog. The end.

Fornasetti Teapot


Beaver Sticks

These windows are made from twigs that were chewed on by beavers! I just hope this adorable little girl got to be the stick-huntress!

Plus I just want to make a note of this sliding door, ahem, Shawn:

Hello Van Cleef & Arpels!

My name is Ellie, pleased to meet you.

Phillips de Pury April 21st Jewels Sale, Unique Pair of Brooches. I would call this particular lot "Swooney McQuackertons and Friend," but that's just me.

I want to make this nightlight. If anyone finds an old piece of crown molding please send it my way.

Pink Living Room

These people picked a nursery color for their living room and it looks amazing! I think I could only do this if I had that old hunting scene and cow (dragon?) skull to offset the girliness.

Piero Fornasetti

I saw this Piero Fornasetti hot air balloon-covered room divider and this morning I can't get enough of him. I've seen the plates before but there are Fornasetti umbrella stands, trays, cups, cabinets and tables; for now I'm just going to put up the dividers. They inspire me!
