This isn't really about the (very appealling) tissue box, but I wanted to recommend handkerchiefs to those who are sniffly--I have perpetual allergies and switched a few months ago to cloth from tissues. Apart from the presumed environmental benefits, my skin is much, much happier, and I am less sniffly. Those boxes of tissues let out little puffs of dust when you pull one out--the very dust that causes the sniffles, for me.... Maybe not ideal when you're sick, though.

I vote for this place! I love the layers of texture and color and line--even that twisty plant over the sofa seems perfectly placed, to me. But at the same time it feels like the reflection of personal history and taste, rather than over-curated. Sometimes the color contest seems to inspire questions about what qualifies as color, but here I think we get the best of both arguments. I wish I had the knack of using color both as boldly (orange rug) and subtly (dining room) as ChrisToronto does. (After lurking lo these many months, this inspired me to register)
