Henry Wilson


I see Henry Wilson has been producing more furniture goodness. Got damn!! I need to get something from him. I'm in love with the bronze, marble, pine table and the Wassily replica chair in blue/grey and beautiful tanned leather.

Kitchen Inspiration

If you look closely in one of those before photos of the dining room, you can kind of see how terribly grim the kitchen is. Its dark, cramped, dated as hell (not in a charming way) awful appliances, annoying and dumb. Hopefully in the next 6-9 months we will be gutting the hell out of it and building something new. I think the only thing I'm sure of design wise when it comes to redoing the kitchen is no upper cabinetry (that is if I can convince my wife that we will have enough storage below)

Where I Stay: The Dining Room



Here are a few shots of the cleaned up Dining Room. It's far from done, but I'm really liking the room. It's kind of weird, and very adult to have a formal dining room. It's been pretty cool to not eat folded in half sitting on the couch. The room is great, it's probably the brightest room in the house. Keisha the dog loves sun bathing in the early afternoon in this room. As you can see in the photos, the room has a nice fireplace with some interesting original built in above the mantel, and an interesting original upside down looking light fixture.
I definitely need to get some furniture for this room but for now I have an outdoor table covered in some burlap, some random chairs that I've found over the years, and a few sorry looking plants.
