Anybody else have a plethora of books and not enough space for them?  I saw this and thought it was very clever.  I'm thinking through where it might work in my house.

Look what I came across and wanted to share.....Folklore.  "An independent London and online store....mindful design for home and life.  Created with care and made to last."

Great place for gifts for your stylish amigos or for some well-made finds that you don't have to leave the privacy of your own computer to purchase.  Enjoy!

If you have never read The Brick House by Morgan Satterfield, this might not be the most representative post from this blog (which is a favorite of mine), but I just love this discussion between her and her readers and the snobs of the world.

Coming from a lover of free finds on the side of the road and making them into something that looks chic and one-of-a-kind in your home, I think this is a pretty right-on topic.  There are always two sides to the story, but I recommend not only reading her post, but also the readers' comments and Morgan's responses:  Click Here!

Oddly enough I was in a coffee shop yesterday with a friend.  Even odder.....we liked the art in it.  The barista told us that the art was from the print gallery a block away on East 6th Street in Austin.  We walk in and what do you know it was the actual brick and mortar for Poster Cabaret.  I guess if I'd paid more attention, I might have noticed that the address is right there on the heading of the site.  I wish the title wasn't "Poster" Cabaret, because some of these I would consider "prints" and curated well, you can really find some good eye candy for your walls on a budget.  Anyhow, I thought I'd give them a shout out and show you a few of my favorites that they sell. Can you guess which one I bought?

I love the use of these hexagonal tiles in this home in Italy designed by Grooppo. Also love how everything is offset by the simple dark trim.
