Not biased at all, as we painted our baby girl's nursery dark grey, but I think this look is wonderful. Cozy and warm, where brights just pop off the wall and whites are crisp. We paired our dark walls with an orange dresser and a Jonathan Adler lamp, a white Ikea crib and a bright pink butterfly mobile, a sofa with lots of bright patterned pillows. Skylights keep the room from feeling too dark. This room will serve as a nursery now and then will become the master when our infant graduates to her big girl room on a different floor at two years old. We made the color choice one that works for the long term, but I don't believe we sacrificed our baby's inspiration.

I'm chiming in for the Joss Whedon TV shows, Buffy and Firefly. And West Wing - but that's in sickness and health.

This picture makes me so happy. I love the rugs, the art, the dog, the fireplace and the FIRE. Fall is all about the smell for me - the crispness in the air carrying that first scent of a fire is my favorite.

I am a HUGE fan of the vibe Cholodenko created (in the film) within the modern shell of this home. It was everything I thought a California home should be - the relaxed, cluttered boho feel combined with the huge windows, indoor/outdoor flow, and the simple lines of the modern design. I actually referenced the film when talking to my interior designer about my new home. The new reality of the space feels too cold, although I love many of the pieces. Maybe I'm just missing the headboard/wall of shelves full of thousands of albums or the coffee tables littered with beer bottles and plastic cups from Jane's last gathering.
