The Houzz link reminded me the other perfect color with blue - orange!

So sophisticated!

The only thing we all agree on is that you have great taste in sofas and living rooms :)

depends on how you want to feel and the mood you are going for. my first thought was hot pink, which I then saw in your painting! Don't be afraid of paint - hot pink can be very refined, and a navy entryway would be stunning and reference the sofa.

we have a navy room with a hot pink sofa - it's surprisingly refined and everyone loves that room! (our back hallway is hot pink too!)

used to do 100% of our shopping there.

Recently returned $30 worth of chicken (chicken breast strips and whole chicken) that were dodgy before date. That's the third time. Produce regularly rots within a day or two, milk spoils early.

Only will go now for snacks, frozen specialty foods and holiday chocolate.

Tried to deal with their flaws for three years. I'm going back to WF and King's.

Chocolate vidalia was tasty. Love lavender and lavender honey (so different from each other) and plain honey. Bloody mary. Lots of corn - that was a trend two years ago, with straw.

Anything from salt and straw in Portland(ia). :)


What's The Strangest Ice Cream You've Ever Eaten?

house is great - photography nicht ser gut.

the photo of the kitchen made me feel sea sick! these people let you into their home, fuzzy detail and crooked room shots were not on the agenda. come on, AT, this has been an issue for years!

the home: lovely and well edited. the rooms were clean and bright and well detailed. There were items deserving of the detail photo, for once. Thought the bedroom mantel's blue and white pottery made me nervous as it didn't fit on the mantel.

Gorgeous and well done, whether you bought early or just made the top dollars to afford it - good for you!

(Haters do well to remember lavish clothing prices line a smart entrepreneur's pocket. Don't hate, emulate or get over it.)

80s bathroom is like a style mashup - some pink, some too much stuff in the space and just a lotta 80s.

but that second one - oooof. why would anyone do that? and is that a cake pan on the ceiling?

can vouch for 13 years plus of those pier 1 glasses! sturdy but with dimple at bottom (hand blown and thick). they've weathered several styles in that time and still classic.

C+B working glass with lids also highly highly recommended!

lifelong heavy packer converted after too much schlepping (I always hated that part!)

Pick a theme (black, navy, grey) color and two coordinating colors. Plenty of underwear.

Am I the only one noticing the re-treads of old posts (this was completed in 2005 - although reposted on to that blog late 2012).

Is AT being sold or just being gutted/in dire straits?

Also, NRobert, you aren't alone in that thought! (Imagine a band today having a different name in Europe - Yaz (US) and Yazoo (Europe).....)

Also photo 2 makes me cringe - the glass door opens toward a row of metal hooks. No door stopper. The mismatched metals are also annoying.
