sunday hideaway

Wow, having babies sure takes up a lot of time everything.  And here I thought I’d have lots of time to post, since I’d just be hanging around at home changing the odd diaper.  Haha…that would be funny if it wasn’t my life.  Well, anyway – this is the perfect place to sneak off to with a good book.  Turn off the cell phone, bust out the good chocolate – lazy Sunday nirvana right here.  The kind of thing I’ll really enjoy 18 years from now, when I next have a lazy Sunday.

tufty time love

Oh yeah…bring it baby.  Found some more beauty shots of the super sexy mystery sofa of a few posts back (Tufty Time, by Patricia Urquiola for B&B Italia).  Va va voom.

First two images from B&B Italia, third source unknown, last from Elle Decor via Design Crisis.


I am love love loving musty, dusty purples right now.  Lookit’ these couches!  Hot damn.  My head understands that my living room will never look like this, as it is somewhat smaller than a tennis court.  I know, okay.  I get it.  But my heart tells me silvery-purple velvet is a perfectly sensible use of our down payment, I’d only have to turn a few tricks to replace the cash before JJ notices it’s missing…

This is the work of photographer Richard Powers, no idea who’s responsible for the design/styling.

cozy industrial

Home of architect Guilherme Torres.  Slice of perfection.  Manages to look downright cozy, while being super stylish and modern and industrial.

an acre of couch

Absolutely, unquestionably, The Perfect Couch.  What is it??

UPDATE: Tufty Time, designed by Patricia Urquiola for B&B Italia.  Being an ignoramus is a lot of work sometimes.

moody monochromatic loft

Hold the press.  That last post about white kitchens?  Scratch that.  I want a moody grey kitchen.  In a moody grey loft, with high ceilings, a casual studied elegance, and a nice dog.  Please.

Seriously, how amazing is this place?  I love pretty much everything.  The lighting, that coffee table!, the mirror over the fireplace, the tufted couch, the mix of styles, the palette.  Divine.  And I’m a person who would have sworn up and down that tufted couches were Not My Thing.  It’s gorgeous and sophisticated but still very genuine.  A testament to the occupants and their exquisite taste – who also happen to be the owners of Ochre, purveyor of fine contemporary furniture.

togo has my heart

How great is this room?  I love Togo anywhere, but in this room it’s inspired.  Maybe some more art, to break up the blinding whiteness of the walls.  That’s my only complaint.  More of this place at Hus & Hem.
