Cuckoo for Cuckoo Clocks

When I was in New York one of my priorities was to visit the overwhelmingly fabulous ABC Carpet & Home. There are so many levels in that store that I’m not sure I even saw everything! But one of the things I did see, and fell in love with, was on the wall downstairs in The Conran Shop. Isn’t this contemporary cuckoo clock by Pascal Tarabay amazing!! I’m absolutely smitten. Functional and beautiful, all wrapped up into one!

I think my obsession may have started when Layla, over at The Lettered Cottage, posted about Camp Wandawega. Just look at this wall of painted traditional cuckoo clocks!!!

Or maybe it was when Sarah first posted the pic of this simple red cuckoo clock framed on her wall, and I thought “of course!”.

And, you can always count on the makers of the world to satisfy any odd sort of decorative cravings. Whether with string art or printed versions, the options to feed my addiction are endless!

Office Organization: Part One

I have been cleaning up and organizing my tiny office since I painted, and thought it was about time for a close up! I found the yellow ampersand in HomeSense last week, and knew it was coming home with me! The vintage turquoise lamp, and the wooden stamps are all from SpaceLab on Main.

I hope you’re having a good week so far! Thanks for all the lovely comments yesterday. They made my day!!

Office DIY: Bi-Fold Door Makeover

21

23.8.11

Do you remember when I mentioned that I was adding a splash of chevron into my studio? Well, it was the interior side of these sad looking bi-fold doors that got some sprucing up! You see, this is the entrance to my “office”. It is actually a 5′ x 9′ former closet space; an amalgamation of a walk-in & linen closet by the previous owners. And, as much as I want to rip these out myself and put in a set of full height french doors, for now, we need to finish off the downstairs. So, in the meantime…

BEFORE:

DURING: (someone wanted to be part of the process)

AND AFTER!

The bold pattern and colour make me smile when I’m working. And, it’s elevated the lowly bi-folds into a working canvas… who knows what will be on there next!
