Friday Crush

I love a good punch to your senses when you enter a home...and this entrance (at least I think it's the entrance...I wasn't actually there) to the 2009 DC Design House accomplishes that goal in a stunning way...I LOVE that wallpaper. And I especially love that painting juxtaposed against the wallpaper's pattern.

I'm heading to the Bare Bones tour tomorrow to see the 2010 DC Design House in its undecorated glory and see the concept boards from the designers - I'm SO excited...

But I'm also SUPER bummed... I had the most awesome weekend planned. My new blogging friend Camila of High Heeled Foot in the Door was coming for a visit! We were going to go to the BB tour together, do some fabric shopping and also meet up with fellow blogger Lauren of Pure Style Home - the perfect weekend, right? But alas, mother nature has once again reared her ugly head this winter and dropped a major storm on Camila's neck of the woods and her flight is cancelled. BOOOO.

I am SO ready for this winter and all of its plan-cancelling weather to be over!

I'll have pix from the tour on the blog next week...See you Monday!


  1. Yes, it was the entryway. The wallpaper is Farrow & Ball from their Lotus Papers Collection. I'm looking forward to the 2010 Design House-I know so many of the designers who will be participating, This has been a horrible winter. Bring on Spring! I never go to the Bare Bones-I really just care what the house looks like after!

  2. I am sorry your plans were cancelled! Will look forward to your report on the Bare Bones tour. I was planning to go, but have guests coming into town and cannot make it now. My husband has been on business in NYC this week and I hope he makes it home tonight!


  4. How have I never found your blog before today?!? As soon as I saw the AMAZING orange background I knew I was in love!! I just spent the last hour reading your blog...not to get too stalkerish or anything right?

    Anyways, I just saw that you got this amazing orange greek key trim for your curtains, did you use it yet? I'm dying to use a greek key trim in my bedroom but I cant pick a color- oh the choices :)

  5. Love that Wallpaper!!!

  6. I'm so sorry that Camila's trip to DC got cancelled -- I'm SO sick of this winter already.

    Hope you have a lovely weekend though, even if it's not what you had planned!

  7. Daniela... I am obsessed with Lauren, she obviously doesn't know this, but I heart her dearly. I think she is insanely talented and want to meet her someday. When you do finally meet up - feel free to pass along this sentiment to her :)
