Okay, maybe I take it back. On its own, I love the house. Once I read the article linked to, however, not so much. The builder sounds like a d*ck. I live in Seattle in a neighborhood of smallish 1940s-50s bungalow. There are a couple lots nearby with GINORMOUS modern homes lurking above all the cute cottages. Making the most of your lot is one thing, but making a statement with something totally out of character to your neighbors (and blocking their light) is nothing to be proud of.

How is Domino folding but Lucky stays in business? I had a subscription to Lucky for a time but stopped because it was too overwhelming; it was like being in a high school clique and every time you finally had assembled the right outfit, the rules changed and now there was a completely DIFFERENT set of accessories you needed to go out and buy. Is anyone really doing that right now?

Geez, saraesc, I don't think she's Julia Childs, either. Personally I love those posters -- I didn't even know those existed until now.

1 to Juliet. This comment, "... female commentors, please cover your eyes when viewing something cool and artistic," should be removed and the commentor banned for its insulting sexism. Perhaps you've never noticed that 99.9 percent of all home design sites are run by women.

I think those are two different pieces. I love the second one.

I love ours too; very easy to clean. Unfortunately, our mastiff puppy also loved it. To chew on. They make great chew toys. Sigh. I wouldn't get one if you have a dog in the chewing stage.

I love the sofas; the chair looks uncomfortable to me. I'd move it to a bedroom and invest in a comfortable, modern chair to offset the vintage-y of the sofas. and I'd recover the sofas (again, not matching). A lot of people are saying to paint the bamboo, but I'd only do that if it were damaged in some way.

Finally, no offense to your other half, but the coffee table does not go. It looks kind of heavy and medieval to me.

Thanks, Carol! Seriously! As a writer and editor, I feel your pain.

I'm sorry, this disappointed me. Maybe it's the photos; I get a lot of sense of stuff but not a lot of sense of individual style.

Hey, I remember when you were still putting together the living room (I blogged on the fireplace screen). Love the final look, congrats!

I'm in West Seattle. I can't see (I'm getting old!) is Luna Park on there? I confess I think of it all as just West Seattle (including Delridge and Fauntleroy). And yeah -- where is White Center?

That's just amazing that someone would be that bold and jerky. (I have stronger words just not using them.) How about a tall fence with a locked gate? Other than that I think a motion detecting light and camera would be great. Or an alarm system. Or borrow a neighbor's dog and don't pick up after it for a week (preferably a large breed with digestive issues).

We have the Gundtal too (my gaw, so cheap). The secret is you have to mount it so the slide-it-on end is *away* from you. So when you pull off the paper, you are pulling the roll toward the part that is attached to the wall, not off the holder and onto the floor.

We have 700 sq ft living space and two mastiffs. (And they are BOTH rescues, thank you!) The older weighs 165; the younger should top out around 120 or so. We are in Seattle and had the hardest time finding a place to rent -- most had a weight limit of 35 pounds! That's not a dog; that's a cat! People don't realize what extra-large dogs tend to do most: SLEEP. Our guys go to the dog park, run around, and in 20 minutes are done for the day. And what they don't do? Bark incessantly or scratch at the door, neurotic for their owners to return.

Big dogs forever! : )
