Printed on 100% cotton their New England inspired designs are available in four main formats: mats, runners, hangings and napkins as well as special orders.
The following hanging, Oceanside, is comprised of 3 block prints, Squid Factory, Herring Factory and Whiting Factory. Love the look and feel of these prints!

Recently I was visiting Harmony and Home and saw one of my favorite rooms ever featured in Coastal Living. Love the blue/gray bookshelves and mirror, the slipcovered furniture, the oversized lamps and of course, the parasol!
How did the parasol come to be?:
"In this house, the decor depends partly on serendipity. A zany Balinese parasol resides above the living area's inviting down sofa. Says Amanda, "I bought a dozen of them to use at my sister's 40th birthday party, and on the night of the event someone stuck it over the sofa." (excerpt from original article written by Marion Laffey Fox)

Is it bad of me to want Z Gallerie to be inspired by it?
Purchased these for the bureau in my entry way that I am painting. In light of my desire to reform my procrastination habit and lack of closure with decorating projects (see previous post), for the record I began this painting project right before Christmas. The paint was a bolder green than I had hoped for but now I have a solution without having to re-paint the whole thing.
The hall bathroom is almost completely redone - except for a showerhead (and a new faucet but the current one is ok for now). So I just ordered this Speakman LEED Standard eco friendly 6-jet Anystream.

You've probably noticed the recent ads - John Derian is joining Target as one of their featured designers. The print ads note the debut date as 9/14 while the website says 9/7 - looks promising! Update - just read that the collection will be available for only 8 weeks.

Recently I bought the June 2008 Espana edition of AD and noticed these photos of Grange's apartment by Eric Jansen. If you compare them to the 2007 photos you'll notice the addition of feathers, flowers, and some room views not originally shown. Shocks of color always draw me in.
Here are some snapshots I took of the magazine - sorry that some of them are not quite clear and crisp.
Also, wanted to send out a thank you to Ludvigsdal for giving me the Home sweet Home award. If you haven't already visited her blog, please do, it's wonderful. She and her family have renovated a beautiful stone home in Sweden and she runs her own boutique in Osterlen. (sorry I couln't enlarge the picture below)

Now I'm home but wishing, just a bit (o.k, a lot) that I was back there. This happens everytime we return to Central New York.
But I have discovered the cure and it involves repeating the following phrase over and over again, "Remember the winter weather, remember the winter weather..."
However, in summer it's the best! Hope you enjoy these photos.
The Thayer House
The Sherwood Inn - this is where we had dinner before the Senior Prom. I grew up in the next town over, Auburn, NY (the subject of a previous post)
LOVE the gothic architecture in the house below - do NOT LOVE the color selection or the bricka-bracka add-on white wrought iron...
