I try not to talk about myself on this blog because design is the focus, but after looking at the March issue of Living Etc with freestanding bathtubs in nearly every home featured, I had to point you to an article that appears in Boston magazine’s Home & Garden edition, written by yours truly. If you’re a local and looking for a tub, this article may help you out. It’s on newsstands until June 12, 2007. The article is called “Bathing Beauties”, pages 51-53. If you do not have access to the issue, I’ve uploaded it to my flickr account, so you can read it there (view in full size). A huge thanks to Julieann (a decor8 reader) from Jace Interiors in Cambridge for the quotes!

A huge thanks to Kiley from Urban Outfitters for sending over a cd product preview for Spring. No sticker shock here, great buys for doing a little Spring spruce up in your home. Here are my picks:
The mid century sofa for only $480- (what a deal), and a floral ink blot rug for $68. A kitschy cute swedish tile hook for $10 (available in 4 patterns), and an oilcloth optic table for $29. I think the table would look really cute on a patio, don’t you?
I find the swedish rose bedspread for $32 to be quite sweet (did you notice it’s being used as a curtain in the top image behind the mid century sofa – I like that!) and these vegetale wall decals for $50 (these aren’t new but they’re on sale so I thought I’d throw them in) are a great find – apply them to most surfaces. I bet a single flower would look great on a chalkboard, mirror, or a stainless fridge. And finally, my last fave, this porcelain lattice lamp base for $42 (minus the shade they show it with online, not a fan of that).
Thanks again, Kiley!

I’ve blogged about Bodie and Fou before, but I can’t get enough – I love everything on their website. Look at these killer finds, can you stand it? Gorgeous.
This gorgeous pendant designed by Normann Copenhagen and Simon Karkov, the Black & Blum pendant light, a delicious butterfly cake stand from Polly George, and the latest ceramic lamp from Flavia del Pra (featured in the March issue of Living Etc.)
Also, don’t miss thier new blog. It’s a great read. I love their recent post about a great Amsterdam sublet. Looks like my kind of place…

Thought I’d pass along a gem of a website for those mid century modern textile lovers out there. It’s called EamesFabric.com. I like it because it’s not for the trade only, so anyone can purchase the textiles online. Girard, Nelson, Maharam, Panton, Eames… It’s all right here.
