Gorgeous - one of the most beautiful posts I've ever seen on AT! Rooms that are light, fresh, welcoming, feminine, elegant, charming, very European and just delightful! Congratulations, sfgirl, you've got a rare gift. Thank you for the inspiration, and at just the perfect time of year!

Hi Gallivant - The latex mattresses are great but they weigh a ton so it probably wouldn't work for you. I'm checking them out now and was delighted to learn they don't need to be turned, because they're so darned heavy.

The video is about grouting a floor, not RE-grouting a floor. I've already got grout in my bathroom but it's ugly and I want to replace it - is that possible? Will I pay as much to have someone remove and replace the grout as I would to have them install a new floor??

I don't understand the negative reactions to these seat covers. They do make after-bath time much more comfy and they're no more likely to collect germs than anything else located close to the toilet top - I just vacuum and wash mine regularly like everything else in the W/C. I only dislike them when they're obviously synthetic. The fluffy, cottony ones disguise the bland plastic-ness of the seat cover and add a splash of colour and texture. Your ill-mannered friend just wasn't open to the benefits of these retro accessories!

I lived a bit north of Humlebaek, in Hornbaek, during one glorious summer of my life and your photos brought back lovely memories - thank you! Hope you enjoy an authentic "is flode" while you're there, or two or three!

You have the gift, Laure! What a charming place but wherever you go, you'll bring your great colour sense and excellent taste. Can't wait to see your next home!

Has anyone seen the stool in person? It doesn't look like a good idea for a side table because it's slightly convex to make for comfier seating, but anything you put on it would slide towards the center - I think? Could someone please let me know if the stool's surface is as flat as the table's? Thanks a lot.

Each riser will support 300 lbs., for a total of 1,200 when you use all 4. So you're safe!

Glad this was helpful, emellemiko. Thanks for the real-life review, colleen. Re: the smell, I've heard that the mattress will only give off a rubbery odour for a week or two but as colleen says, natural latex has a fairly pleasant scent unlike the fake ones that smell a lot like chemical soup.

Target used to carry beautiful oval and round switch plate covers in chrome - has anyone seen them anywhere else?
