Extreme Home Makeover: Blog Edition

I know I know I know. I'm horrible. Terrible. The world's worst blogger ever. But I have a good excuse! Oh wait, no I don't. I'm just lazy. Lazy and tired. Lazy and tired and working on too many projects at once. 

BUT.  Big news. Big. Huge. Next week there will be some BIG CHANGES AROUND HERE!!!

Ok so that wasn't really news. More like, the promise of news.  We're all about the tease.

Stay tuned...

So sorry for the long break dearies. Things got a bit out of control with the state of my internet connection. Plus, all the premieres had me very busy indeed. (OMFG Kath & Kim have animal print EVERYTHING)

Now that we are back on track, I want to point out the brilliant blue carpet in Andrew Beer's home. I love it. I want RIGHT NOW.  In fact, the more I stare at the photograph, there isn't much that I don't love in this room. An entrant in Point Click Home's Happy Chic Home Contest, Beer's bold use of color is pure genius--the room somehow still seems understated despite the bright carpet, pink chair and fur throw. 

I love how the pink in the windows echos the chair nearby, the blue carpet is reflected in the steel legs of the desk as well as the  glass vase and books on the mantle, and the dark plum color in the fireplace is matched with the large vase above. All this is balanced out by the strikingly delicate mirror above the mantle and the quietly neutral books on the two bookcases. 


Check out the winners of the contest, judged by my secret boyfriend Jonathan Adler here.

Oh Dear

I'm terribly sorry for the lack of posting lately- we've had a horrible time dealing with the scumbags at Time Warner and will hopefully be up and running again within the next few days.

In the meantime, feast your eyes on these fried apple pies! Fall = Apples. Therefore it is my personal goal to eat apples in some form at least 5 times a week for the duration of the season. Probably until early March when I get sick of them and switch to pears. Mostly, I intend the apples to be in a baked good, so these yummy delights are just what the doctor ordered. Portable and fried! What is better? Also, they look like a more authentic version of the apple pies at McDonalds, which I pretend to snub but secretly adore.
