i am japanese-irish, so shoes off always! all our friends do it willingly, it's never been a problem. we have a little cubby behind our 50s diner booth where everyone can kick off their shoes. we also keep flip flops at every door (we have 3) for running outside. i don't know if it's cultural or sanitary (or both), but i wouldn't have it any other way!

these are fantastic! i love #4, 6, 8 and 9 ... i would love to see my Labs pose (they are always so sneaky about leaving dents on our duvet - they give us this look like, "what? the bed? i don't know what you are talking about!)...they wouldn't understand being praised for getting ON the furniture!

i wasn't sure what to expect before watching the video (i agree, "midcentury modest" is pretty genius). i have to say, so much knotty wood is not my cup of tea, but i did love her tchotchkes and will be obsessing on her kitchen for the rest of the day! i doubt i will ever grow tired of the MCM look, but i the key to any decor is adding your own personality and sense of humor. mix it up and have some fun!
