What a busy week! The dining room is painted, and I'm still in awe of the difference it makes. I was so happy, I couldn't wait to share the progress on Instagram, after only one coat. It looks better now. I'll share Monday.
Some things that caught my attention this week...
* Emily Henderson revealed her new studio, and no surprise, it's beautiful. I had to catch my breath after I saw this shelf full of brass.
* This midcentury gem is absolutely stunning. Try to ignore the staging, which is not even close to the midcentury aesthetic. Just soak in the house itself.
Now if only it were located in the southern suburbs of Dayton, and for sale four months ago. I know the kids would love a home with a pool in the middle.
* I lost a few hours of my life to this collection of photos from 1935-1945. The site, created as a project at Yale University, features an interactive map which allows you to choose any area in the U.S. and view images from that era. I love American History, with particular interest in the Great Depression. These pictures aren't gratuitously sad, just a realistic portrayal of what life was like at that time.
Image of a salt plant on Seneca Lake in 1940, by Royden Dixon. It certainly doesn't look like that anymore.
This has been a busy week. I'm ready for the weekend!
