…and the emptiness of my bank account.

But being on a diet doesn’t mean one can’t peruse the menu. [Mexican wisdom]

These are some of the things I’ve been drooling over lately, in view of the impending windup of our house renovation.

purl soho fabrics: embarras de richesses! I’m guessing that as soon as we move in, I’ll spend quite some time on my sewing machine: I’m planning to make cushions for Damiano’s room floor, cushions for our sofa, and our guest daybeds. Also, I’m planning to make a dark slipcover for the sofa, since white sofa and baby don’t make a good combo.


Mepala Rosti “modula” pantry organizers: finally we’ll have a big roomy kitchen, with lots of storage space, and that comes with my dream of being anally organized. These are perfect for drawers, fridge and cupboards.


Isak breakfast trays: aren’t these simply lovely?


Ligne Roset Rêve D’Edo chest: the search for a bedside table ends here!!


Lem bar stools: we settled with a couple of second bests. IKEA’s Sebastien stools, which aren’t bad, and cost 1/6 th of these magnificent beauties.

    We’re waiting for the plumber to come and install the faucet, and the tile people to tile the backsplash. I’ll take pictures just then, hopefully at the end of this week!
    Ikea in Europe is in every medium-large city, and most homes are over-ikea-ized. For Europeans Ikea is a great cheap solution to start with, and cool because if you get bored you can change your furniture without guilt. However, I think that sooner or later we’ll replace our Ikea pieces with better quality solutions.
