Forget it, found it in Karlstad Ikea, dark grey. Looks great with the colors added.

I was wondering where the couch was too. Anyone?

Thanks everyone! I greatly appreciate your confidence in the Magic Eraser - which it looks like Ill have to use a lot more often ;)
And the clear desk top idea from IKEA - or plexiglass - are also great ideas that I'll look into. I've discovered, the hard way, that not all washable markers are equally washable, but I'm happy to have some creative alternatives. Ill be sure to update!
Best wishes all readers, Ziva

I was thinking of somehow attaching two sets of these 'bubble' shelves to the wall (in a random pattern) for my daughter's nursery but don't know what material they're made of (I have yet to see them in person). Does anyone know? And if so, is it 'carpentarily' possible to attach something that will also attach it to the wall? Thanks!

love the utensils - kind of mod and not too kid-kitchy.

We use these and let me tell you, it's amazing! First off, the comfort is top notch. Second, it doesn't matter if it gets wet or dirty. Ours actually does double duty both in the garden and for the bath. Great great product.

i'm in no way a professional but when we reupholstered a chaise lounge i actually left the covering on bc it held the padding onto the frame (it was very old). it may be a good idea if you are too afraid to start taking it apart - this way the main structure is kept in tact and you can just work from to build it up as you want.
that said, getting rid of the skirt may be tricky.
but as advised above, go slowly, keep your patience and leave a lot of time

This may be more uptown than you were planning, but recently I contacted the Country Inn the City on the Upper West Side to host a family member who decided to come last minute to NYC. I spoke with Fergus the owner who was very accomodating in terms of negotiating a last minute deal for me (I literally called the same day).
My point is, the accomodations look beautiful online and the location is nice for visitors given the park nearby and you won't have to worry about setting them up with furniture or food bc it's a B&B.
Here's a link to their site
(Please note, this is an unsolicited recommendation)

I would suggest calling to see about a group rate for your family members. Unfortunately NY lodging can get expensive but given everything else you'll be juggling with the wedding, you may want them to be as well off in their options as possible.
Best wishes and congratulations!

Nice rug - has a sort of Rothko mysticism in the color gradation. Do they realize though that calling it 'dippy' isn't exactly ranking high on the scale of adjectives that get things sold - and sounding expensive? :)

Did anyone else notice how Levy's rockfusion-meet-meteorite end tables are somehow reminiscent of the Superman 2 phantom zone where general Zod and his cohorts were trapped.... just saying...
