The new resident has taken up occupancy in the hallway. Doesn’t it look perfect next to Elisabeth’s amazing poster?
I’m looking forward to the long holiday weekend! Saturday will be very full: picking up the floor tiles for the bathroom (!!!), lunch with old friends, dinner with new friends. By Monday evening, I am determined to have curtains sewn for the living room. The fabric has been sitting around for months, but I’ve been procrastinating because I don’t feel like ironing. Isn’t that silly? I just hate ironing, especially huge pieces of fabric.
oh my that is one gorgeous hallway, in fact your whole house is perfect – please come over and do mine will you!
It looks great Anna!! Especially with Elisbeth’s poster and the rug!! Fun bursts of color.
Tiles!!! Does that mean you are getting work done on the bathroom?!?!
Looks perfect! And I love those posters too. What a fun way to brighten a hallway. 🙂
Oh and I forgot to mention how much I love that sideboard in the hall way too. Amazing!
your weekend sounds fabulous, i’m booking a ticket to ny to join you 😉 oh and anna, i hate ironing too, i never buy clothes that have to be ironed (and therefor look kind of shabby at bit too often).
what a lovely hall…
Wow! Everything is looking so beautiful! I can’t wait to see upcoming posts about the bathroom! I hope all is well with you! I need to catch up with you sometime.
That looks wonderful!
ironing is the devil’s work.
i am in thrall to the hang-it-all!
Anna…. this is not about your blog, sorry, but can you email me that link to the amazing London apartment that has the staircase with the books… the link that shows all of the pics esp. the upstairs bedroom. Thanks! ….Janet
Your entry is fabulous. I really like your stripe runner.
LOVE this. i want to live here.
Oh, so nice :)!
i am in love with your credenza with the marble top! any tips on where to find something similar???
Joanne, it’s a Knoll 4-Position credenza, designed by Florence Knoll in 1961. You can still buy them new (though the styling is slightly different — they no longer have sliding doors, and the pulls are now aluminum instead of leather), or you can buy a vintage one (try eBay, Craigslist, antique stores, etc.).
Ours is vintage (probably from the early 70’s). We found it on Craigslist. The top had de-laminated, so we had a slab of 1/2″ marble cut to the fit. It’s not screwed on or anything, the weight is enough to keep it firmly in place.
The total cost for ours (including the marble) was about $800. Quite a steal compared to the $7000+ we would have paid to buy one new!
You have a great eye for design!
I was looking for inspiration and ideas for my hang it all rack that is going up in my new apartment. I LOVE the rug, where did you get that? I’m a year late, but what the hell, had to ask 😛
Love your blog
Nina: The rugs (it’s actually two, end-to-end) are from IKEA.
