Well aren't you the horse's mane?

I'm detecting a trend: giant photographs of horses, especially horse manes and faces. Here are two examples:

The first is a room by Garret Cord Werner from Seattle, and the other is in the bedroom of Francisco Costa, creative director at Calvin Klein. Here's another by Tony Stromberg that could look great in a large size print:

Gorgeous imagery, don't you think?

Happy Weekend!

It's so cold and rainy here in Portland and this morning we woke up to a smashed window in the car and missing GPS. Not a fun morning of calling the insurance company, glass replacement guy, and the cops. Pretty much three people you don't want to ever talk to.

Anyway, I am looking forward to this weekend and some q.t. with good friends and maybe cleaning up the house a little. But where would I really love to be? Sitting on this porch in Mississippi with a good book and a warm breeze.

I've got the itch to take a road trip...

Don't you just love these gorgeous images from photographer Anna Wolf? Makes me want to load the family into a van and drive off somewhere without a map or a care in the world.

Looking for the perfect table lamp. (Are you out there?)

We're in the market for a really cool table lamp; a piece that is surprisingly difficult to find. We have some parameters: It should be big enough to make a statement on the large side table near the couch, but not heavy in case the baby finds a way to bring it down, and should cost less than $150.

Here are some of the contenders:

(I like this one because it will give the room a shot of color.)
