Real Simple Galleries

Jason wrote about something that I look forward to whenever Real Simple hits my mailbox, the amazing paper constructions inside! Check out the new paper construction gallery on the Real Simple website showing a few from past issues. I hope they spoil us and show them all. I loved the ones that they created using road maps once. Do you remember them? They were amazing.


While cruising their site, I found more goodies! There’s a terrific new round up of all their past covers from 2001-2006, and since they have some of the best stylists around (outside of the Martha Stewart gang), I love examining all the details for styling ideas. And sidepoint, but don’t they have the best wall colors ever?


If you have time today, visit their additional galleries because they feature everything from centerpieces and flowers to relaxation and pets. Click here for your very own drool fest.

I’m so glad that Real Simple enlarged the imagery on their website, because like you, when it comes to getting enough of a good thing, that simply does not exist when looking at gorgeous spaces!

Random eBay Find

As random as this post is, I have to show you the 50’s table that I found scanning eBay this morning.


What do you think? I absolutely adore it, from the perky colors (I see some orange in there) to it’s skinny little legs and the crazy fish motif. I’m looking for a table like this, only with a solid white top, if anyone knows of anything… I’m on the prowl!

How about orange…

Loving all this orange? There’s even a blogger obsessed with this zesty hue. Meet Chicago-based graphic designer Jessica Jones right here.


Want to see a “real home” infused with this invigorating color? Remember the the mini peek we had of Jonathan Lo’s California home back in August 2006? Click here to view the post.

Orange Interiors

When looking for great rooms online to inspire your next decorating project, why not turn to the magazines and designers that you love. Living Etc., Domino, House Beautiful, David Hicks, and many others top my list. Here are a few of my favorites, in orange, of course. ;)

And here are some vintage Heywood Wakefield chairs in orange that I found at the Brimfield show back in May. What do you think of these? Wild, huh!?

And for more orange inspiration today, visit my flickr set: Orange! You can click on any image to see the full view, and if you’re a flickr member, you can add any of them to your faves if you see something you like.

{I’m off for the afternoon to see Morrissey in concert (swoon!) with my friend Paris. It’s our ritual, we see him together whenever he’s in town, and tonight he happens to be over at Harbor Lights. I’m so excited, I’m a huge Morrissey fan! See you tomorrow!}
