INSIDE: cubicle culture
Posted by Sal Taylor Kydd on 5/08/2008

SAL: It’s not often I get to quote Valleywag in the context of Harry and Sal. The tech gossip rag generally has little to say on interior design let’s face it. But I had to share with you this great piece about the coolest offices in Silicon Valley. Typing away from my modest digs here at, I can but drool over these gorgeous spaces! Enjoy.

OUTSIDE: obsession
Posted by Sal Taylor Kydd on 5/05/2008

Now I know most people don’t share my somewhat long and tawdry obsession with the beloved bird box, but there’s something about it - a wee home on a wall - a nest. It’s so cosy and inviting and you’re doing something positive for your garden, as opposed to spraying pesticides everywhere or irritating the neighbors with noisy lawnmowers. But why the sad story? Well I have a trail of sad bird boxes littering my home, neglected, just waiting for some wee inhabitants to make them feel loved. One, rustic-looking, sits unused on my lawn, forlorn, just waiting for lazy old me to go hang it somewhere. The other, shabby-chicesque (we all go through that phase at one time or another) sits in the side yard gathering dust. So maybe this gem from my latest favorite site Generate could be the go. Clean lines, sweet motif. Nice. I think I really have to get the other ones up tho before I can splurge again. What say you?

WEAR: mom - bejewel thyself!
Posted by Sal Taylor Kydd on 5/02/2008

Mother’s Day is here again - and being a relatively new Mom - well just 3 years in - I am beside myself with excitement as Liseanne Frank is having a Mothers Day Shopping Event! But here’s my question - do I go and shamelessly buy myself something exquisite and extravagant - or do I send my husband? Both seem terribly gauche, I may just have to suck it up send him an email with a none-too-subtle hint and hope for this best. Anyway ladies - enjoy, indulge - be it for yourself or for your own Mom - and smile as you think of sleepless nights appeased.

WEAR: etsy picks
Posted by Sal Taylor Kydd on 5/01/2008

It’s been a while since I’ve taken a stroll through the wonderful world of Etsy, but tonight I did - and here are a couple of the gems I found that I thought you all might enjoy!

This wee skirt from Little Overcoat for three year olds is too delightful for words. And it’s all made from recycled fabrics - perfection!

Personalized name-plates for books are a perennial favorite (great stocking filler - OK that’s way too much thinking ahead!) - and these are particularly distinctive. From Oiseaux.

All of these brought to you today by the color orange and the letter E, well no letter really, but the color orange anyway - why save it for Fall?
