INSIDE: rugged up
Posted by Sal Taylor Kydd on 12/07/2008

Well I am in Maine right now so you’ll have to forgive the weather metaphors. With all this snow and cold weather and such, my mind is drawn to the cosy and the warm, the inviting and the comforting. Which is why this lovely rug from Domestic Modern caught my attention. I keep racking my brains to think if I can make this work in my new place, jury’s out, but I still had to share. :)

INSIDE: these chairs are a steal!
Posted by Sal Taylor Kydd on 11/26/2008

I’m so excited to now finally be embarking on my project of giving hearth and home a bit of an upgrade. Since we built/renovated the house almost 4 years ago (well it did go down to studs!)  there have been a bunch of small nits I’ve been dying to address. We moved in and Oliver was born about a week later so there wasn’t much time for remodeling! Now I’m delighted to be working with designer Laura Clayton Baker on modernising our little Venice cottage and bringing us into the twenty-first century. And don’t you know it, I’ll be blogging all the way.

It was Laura who put me on to these wonderful French outdoor chairs, currently on sale at Pottery Barn - for $4.99 a pop you can’t beat it. Well, what are you waiting for?!

READ: the wonderful world of oliver jeffers
Posted by Sal Taylor Kydd on 11/20/2008

I’ve been spending some time recently, what with the holidays and all coming up, looking for some cool gift ideas. Given that times are tough, I am determined not to go overboard this year. So books have got higher on my list as I look for goodies for the kids. What glee when I discovered the wonderful world of Oliver Jeffers! The illustrations are a treat - right up there with my other favorite illustrator Elena Odriozola of The Opposite fame. Children’s books could become a serious addiction for me. Jeffer’s water colors are also available as prints for you to decorate your wee one’s rooms. Divine.

What children’s books illustrators do you enjoy?

OUTSIDE: the grass really is greener
Posted by Sal Taylor Kydd on 11/18/2008

People you will love this. Sometimes you fall upon that certain website that offers that eclectic, “curatorial” approach as the founders of Greener Grass Design put it - that perfectly fits our elevated sensibilities. These two Houston natives have collected a wide and diverse range of designers to showcase a range of homewares, holiday gift ideas, jewlery and furniture.

Ah - and I get to indulge my passion for bird houses. There’s something for the bird-lovers Xmas-list!

WEAR: get political
Posted by Sal Taylor Kydd on 10/28/2008

Tis the season for political action, so I thought I’d share with you these very funky tees from the folks over at Democratees.com There are a bunch of different styles to suit every activist’s taste, with titles varying from “Petrolcide” to “This Machine Kills Fascists” - depicting a picture of a guitar. Nice one. I chose the more innocuous Treehugger pictured above.
