HOUSE: Newburgh

Around the house, Saturday.

Just a few snaps for the weekend. I’m still really busy (of course), but this is what my house looks like when I take a 5-minute break.

I’m really excited for October.

    happy fall, anna. hope you get some downtime soon 🙂

    i wished i picked up one of those walnut hang-it-alls when i had the chance… where will you put yours?

    • Anna @ D16 October 1, 2011 at 5:06 pm

      Apparently I’ll put mine on the floor on top of a folded-up rug and leave it there for a year!

    • Julie October 1, 2011 at 8:17 pm

      But, you’ve GOT it. That’s the important thing.

  • Reply Angelina October 1, 2011 at 5:16 pm

    Happy fall! I love the aqua and yellow vases.

  • Reply Melanie October 1, 2011 at 5:52 pm

    Hi Anna! Glad to see you had time for a photography break. I love the Douglas Coupland books and the vases shot.

  • Reply Julia October 1, 2011 at 5:59 pm

    Hello Anna! I am happy that it will be fall soon here in Germany, love this time of the year.

    I like the rug very much, where can I find something like that?

    Hope you’ll have a good weekend!

    • Anna @ D16 October 1, 2011 at 6:02 pm

      Julia, I’m not sure whether you mean the striped rug or the one with the triangles, but they’re both from IKEA—thought I suspect they’ve long since been discontinued.

    Hey Anna,

    Any change in the leaves going up to Newburgh? Very nice set of photos, I’m so happy October is finally here although it’s crunch time concerning Halloween!
    BTW, I know I have told you a million times but I love those white floors. . . . and how did I not know that you wall papered your bathroom?! that is your bathroom sink, correct? It looks beautiful!
    The Biscuits!

    • Anna @ D16 October 1, 2011 at 9:26 pm

      The leaves are showing a smidgen of yellow here and there, but nothing to talk about just yet. The third week of October is when it gets really amazing!

      And yeah, of course that’s my bathroom! You’ve seen the wallpaper before, I’m sure—we did it a few years ago when we did everything else in there. More pictures here!

  • Reply Lori E. October 1, 2011 at 10:47 pm

    I beg you. Please quit showing your painted floors!! It makes me want to dive into ours RIGHT NOW!!!
    Because your house looks so organized and uncluttered, what is your main organizational tip?? Do you go thru stages? I mean, I will be organized for a while and then my pack rat, procrastination gene kicks in and “Hoarders” here I come. Ok, maybe not THAT bad but still…

    • Anna @ D16 October 1, 2011 at 10:59 pm

      My tip is to only take close-up photos of little vignettes, and crop out the enormous piles of junk around them. 🙂

    I luuuuuuuuuuuuuuuv the pic of the random light, there. It looks like the MOON. I am so happy October is here; it is my most favorite month 🙂 and I can’t wait to start on Halloween costumes.

  • Reply June October 2, 2011 at 12:13 am

    Love Douglas Coupland and the mixture of white and textures in your home. Happy Autumn!

  • Reply Peetu October 2, 2011 at 4:06 am

    How in the world (inspite of being so busy) do you manage to keep your house clutter free? It’s just 2 of us at home, n no pets, but we manage to create a mess through the week & try to pick up the pieces on the weekend. Never ending cycle!

    • Anna @ D16 October 2, 2011 at 9:35 am

      Easy, don’t take pictures of the mess! I don’t show my whole life on this blog, believe me.

  • Reply courtney October 2, 2011 at 11:56 am

    i am very much in love with that bathroom wallpaper. so pretty.

  • Reply courtney October 2, 2011 at 11:57 am

    ps- once i took pictures of my office mess, posted them on my blog, and people were surprised. i hate mess. but when i’m insanely busy, it’s inevitable. amazing that a teacher/etsy shop owner can’t afford a household staff, eh? 🙂

  • Reply Grace October 2, 2011 at 7:00 pm

    Nice to see the Coupland books. He’s one of my favorite authors. Where are the vases next to them from?

    My love of trigonometry from when I was younger has come back to me hardcore recently. The Ikea triangle rug and fabrics from a few years back are haunting me. Did you end up getting the Turbine pillow from CB2? I like that the cover is cotton but I haven’t had a chance to check it out the texture in person yet.

  • Reply Amanda October 3, 2011 at 10:34 am

    Great pics! I’m so glad Fall is here.

    I’m sure you get sick of the “where did you find that?” questions, but where did you find that great coral hook? I’ve been searching for a year for the perfect wall-mounted coat hook for my tiny entry-way. And yours is the cutest I’ve seen.


    • Anna @ D16 October 3, 2011 at 10:38 am

      I’m pretty sure it came from Anthropologie, Amanda, but it was about 6 or 7 years ago, so I’m not sure if they still carry them.

    • Grace October 4, 2011 at 1:15 am

      I think Anthropologie released a metal version somewhat recently as I recall seeing it in stores. It’s still showing up on their redesigned site though it’s out of stock. They expanded their home section in a few stores ( so it might be worth calling one of them to ask about it.

    i saw a few of these shots @ instagram over the last few days. i like your place — a lot. it’s so orderly and clean, luv it.

  • Reply Meta Musings October 3, 2011 at 11:47 pm

    Great photos! Love the look of your blog. xx

  • Reply Adrienne October 4, 2011 at 10:37 am

    Hi…I have been browsing your blog for some time now. Love it, your work, and your decorating eye. Also like your tiny photo vignettes of your stuff around your house, this week. Speaking of stuff, can you please tell me the origin, or where you got it, and/or possibly the artist of the vintage ceramic art tile piece in the 7th photo? I recently found two by the same artist, I think….very same style. Really nice piece…thanks.

    • Anna @ D16 October 4, 2011 at 10:38 am

      I don’t know, sorry, it was my grandmother’s—I don’t know anything about it!

    <3 Douglas Coupland.

  • Reply Monica {bohemian twilight} October 7, 2011 at 6:12 am

    hey there.
    I’m enjoying your posts and enjoy these glimpses of your home. The patterns and prints stand out to me today. I’ve never read Douglas Coupland. Any good?

  • Reply Emelie October 7, 2011 at 1:13 pm

    I really love your pictures and your blog, this is because you are in my blogroll 😉

  • Reply Tania October 7, 2011 at 8:10 pm

    I love the walnut hang it all, I have the multicolored and white but it was a tough decision. I hemmed and hawed over which one to get.

    The picture of the homes is lovely and has an old feel about it…if it wasn’t for the cars, you could think it was taken in a much earlier decade.

  • Reply Heather Lea October 7, 2011 at 11:15 pm

    I agree with Tania! I can’t decide between the walnut or the multi-colored either and have yet to make a final decision…your vignette is making the walnut version look mighty tempting though…..

    • Anna @ D16 October 7, 2011 at 11:18 pm

      I have both! That’s what I recommend. 🙂

      I think the walnut one is long-gone, though, so your decision may have been made for you…

  • Reply moparbrownstoner October 10, 2011 at 8:46 am

    I have that Anthropologie coral hook too! In white.

  • Reply Leen October 30, 2011 at 4:27 pm

    All nice!! great home you have!

  • Reply Alfredo November 1, 2011 at 7:45 pm

    Love the montage. Chic and clean with a Nordic bent. Lovely

  • Reply Ashely A. November 3, 2011 at 2:21 pm

    Love your style & October too!
