    hah, this picture is precious and I certainly agree. I am planning on painting both my living room and bedroom today. Yikes. we’ll see if that gets done.

    so cute. funny when you don’t have a day job and work from home. the days just run into each other and weekends mean little. this is both good and bad. Hope you have a good sunday.

    So sweet. What happened to your pretty grey cover? Did a certain puppy chew a hole in it?

    I can almost hear you say that line in such a depressing manner. Don’t worry, it’s how I think of that line too.

    Your dogs are absolutely so gorgeous!

    I cannot beleive how big Fritz have gotten. They are both so cute, but of course, you know that.

    Too true.
    btw, your pics always leave me wishing your lens had a little wider angle & I mean that in a nice way. I want to see more. You have done such an incredible job with your place.

  • Reply Chi_collector2 December 13, 2009 at 9:14 pm

    I second Carolone’s comment about the wider angle lens!

    This questions has no doubt been asked before, but … where did you purchase the black/white graffic rug in this photo? (I love its’ simplicity and appeal.)

    Thank you.

    Oops! Sorry for the error in the spelling of your name Caroline … a little more attention to detail was required on my part!

    OMG! And, Anna, I intended to type “This question” — not “This questions”.

    I just cut myself off from more coffee …

    Good grief, they are as precious as two pups can possibly be! So cute to see them perched on the back of a sofa like that too, just where my cats like to hang out.

    Have you been happy with you Ikea sofa so far? I ask because it’s a model I’m contemplating purchasing (I like the shape of it, and the ability to swap slipcovers with ease…my cats like to scratch, sadly). Just wondering what the comfort level is like after it gets broken in.

    I keep coming back to Door Sixteen. You have some special magic happening here, chica.

    I think it’s an addiction.

  • Reply Fernanda December 14, 2009 at 9:25 am

    Finally they are back!!! I love to see Fritz and Bruno. They are so cute!!!

  • Reply Vanessa December 14, 2009 at 1:15 pm

    I love those pics! Anyone who ever tells you that you’ll stop being nutty about your fur-babies if you one day have human-babies is wrong. Houndies are not pre-babies at all. I still take a lot of dog-photos! I love this blog! Thank you for making it a nice place to visit.

  • Reply Lori December 14, 2009 at 7:06 pm

    I would love to hear your review of your IKEA couch also… Cute pups!! 🙂

  • Reply Anna at D16 December 14, 2009 at 8:11 pm

    Jules: I can’t blame Fritz this time. 🙂 We had the Danish chairs reupholstered in dark gray-brown fabric over the summer, and the look was too heavy with the dark coffee table and the dark sofa, so we switched to a white cover.

    Chi_collector2: The rug is from IKEA, but I don’t think they carry it anymore.

    Lisa & Lori: We’ve ha the KARLSTAD sofa for about a year now, and it’s been great! Honestly, I don’t notice any sagging or aging of any kind at all, and we’re pretty hard on it. Once a week I pull the cushions off to vacuum, and plump up/reshape the back ones (the dogs like to burrow there — see photo!) and it’s like new. I’ve changed the cover twice (this requires partially disassembling the sofa), and the frame is still in perfect condition. It’s really an incredible bargain. (I recommend upgrading to the aluminum legs, though — they look WAY better than the standard wood blocks it comes with.)

    How cute are your dogs! I have 2 doggies also. Aren’t they just the best.

  • Reply jenny December 16, 2009 at 9:48 pm

    is it just my eyes, or has Fritz grown? He looks the same size as Bruno now!

  • Reply Anna December 17, 2009 at 4:19 am

    So cute! and lovely carpet, where did you get it?

  • Reply Monica December 17, 2009 at 6:54 am

    Love the dogs, they are so cute!

  • Reply hallie December 17, 2009 at 12:16 pm

    I love how you always manage to place at least one “undone” thing in your mostly modern rooms. The mirror saves this bathroom from being to Sprokets. KWIS?
    You’ve done such a fantastic job in here (and so many other places).

  • Reply debbie January 6, 2010 at 8:21 pm

    Can you tell me more about those Danish chairs? I have the same ones along with a matching sofa and rocking chair. The rocking chair just broke and I’m wondering if it’s worth it to fix it. I really like this style furniture, got all of my pieces from my grandmother but never knew much about them. TIA

  • Reply Anna at D16 January 7, 2010 at 11:08 am

    There are no markings on the chairs, Debbie, so I can’t really tell you anything more about them specifically. My general rule of thumb is that if you have a piece of furniture that you love, it is worth repairing and taking care of — regardless of its pedigree. 🙂
