Four Legs + HOUSE: Newburgh

The view(s) from my sofa.

I’m working on an awesome freelance project—which you’ll get to see very soon!—at home for the next few days, and that means I’m camped out on the sofa with an iced coffee (and a couple of cute puppies) at my side. Here are the four views I have from my “desk”. I like the last one best, of course.

    These pictures make me want to get a laptop! It looks like a great working environment 🙂

      I can’t work like this all day every day because it’s not so good for the back, but working on the sofa (sometimes) is fun. 🙂

    Tee hee! I love your dogs! ^_^
    Looking forward to the project.

    Oooh. Is that a little rolling MCM cart I spy in photo #2?

    • Anna @ D16 July 20, 2011 at 9:11 pm

      It’s an Arthurt Umanoff bar cart. Details here! 🙂

    In photo two, what is that picture (or is it a tv with a reflection?). It looks nice either way!

  • Reply Kelly July 21, 2011 at 12:08 am

    When you show pics of this room I can’t help but gawk at that beautiful beautiful chair! I love it and want to find a similar one for my living room!

  • Reply Erica July 21, 2011 at 4:36 am

    I can’t wait! Your pics are so lovely.

  • Reply Erin July 21, 2011 at 8:03 am

    Ohh, I love everything about this room (especially Fritz’s pointy ears!). But I especially still love that rainbow-gradient smoke print you made in Photoshop hanging by the entry to the dining room. If you sold that, I would buy it.

    • Anna @ D16 July 21, 2011 at 11:09 am

      Erin, it’s just a royalty-free stock photo that I printed on photo paper! I think it would be illegal for me to sell it.

    Lovely pics. Lovely feets too, lady!! Can’t wait to hear about the project…

    Hello, would you be interested in selling this green anglepoise floor lamp, if it’s in working conditiont? I would be happy to pay you 5 times what you paid for it…

  • Reply Lizzie July 21, 2011 at 6:09 pm

    Your home is so lovely. I hope to have one like it someday when I’m not a poor art school kid.

    Do you have a problem keeping your chairs where they belong since they are directly on the wood floor? Ever since I took out our area rug and just left the wood exposed our chairs “crawl”. Granted, I have 2 boys and a 50 pound dog launching themselves in to them but still… I wondered if you had a discreet way of keeping them where they are supposed to be.

  • Reply Lori E. July 22, 2011 at 5:53 pm

    Do you have trouble keeping your furniture where it needs to be? I took up our area rug from our front room and the chairs don’t seem to want to stay in place. Even when they aren’t being a landing spot for two rowdy boys and a 50 lb pooch. I would appreciate and all tips for runaway chairs!!

  • Reply Lori E. July 22, 2011 at 7:45 pm

    Ok, not sure why my first one from last nite didn’t show up. lol I guess it just shows my desperate pursuit to find an answer! 🙂

    • Anna @ D16 July 22, 2011 at 9:17 pm

      Lori, that is SO WEIRD. I saw your earlier comment late last night, but then when I went to reply to it, it was gone. I actually started wondering if I’d hallucinated it in a state of exhaustion!! Then when I saw the second one come up for approval, I got REALLY confused and started thinking I might be psychic. Now they’re BOTH there!! I’m glad it’s not just me, though, and that you noticed it disappeared, too.


      Well, anyway…hmmm. I just checked under the chair feet to see if there’s anything stuck under there, but it’s just worn-out metal. I haven’t really noticed them migrating, but that could be because we don’t have kids and our dogs weigh about as much as pair of socks. 😉 Our floor also isn’t very slippery. I know it looks shiny in photos, but it’s pretty worn down and etched, so between that and the worn-out metal, I guess there’s some natural grip going on!

      Have you tried those little rubber adhesive pads that you can stick under furniture feet? They work pretty well!

    • Lori E. July 22, 2011 at 11:23 pm

      I have tried the rug gripper stuff (it is supposed to go under rugs) but it didn’t work very well. I think I will try the small rubber pads you recommended instead… Thanks! 🙂

      And the disappearing comment is super weird… *cue “Twilight Zone” music*

    Looks comfy, are you still liking the Ikea sofa? I’m probably getting one soon, so just wondering. Can’t wait to hear more about the new project.

    • Anna @ D16 July 22, 2011 at 10:00 pm

      Oh yeah, the sofa is GREAT. We have the loveseat-sized Karlstad for our apartment, too.

    Hey Anna! This is my first comment on your blog (even though I’ve been following it for well over a year). My wife and I have enjoyed the tips you’ve provided while renovating your home and have definitely used quite bit of them in our home. If you don’t mind me asking a random question, what font do you typically use in your photos (ie. the numbers in the above photo)?

    • Anna @ D16 July 25, 2011 at 12:22 pm

      Hi Dustin, I don’t have one particular font that I use more than others (I have zillions and zillions of fonts in my library…fonts are for me like shoes are for some other girls), but the numbers in the photo above are set in Brandon Grotesque Medium.
