Moses, you have a lovely home. I too have faucets that pounce right out of the wall and much to our plumber's dismay, I plan to keep them.
I *love* the bbqs. They're witty, whimsical, and useful -- a perfect trifecta. (How often does that happen?) Does anyone here know the artist?

I'll mention also that in houses past I've used molly bolts in drywall to hang floating bookshelves. However, one needs to bury a few screws in a stud and use molly bolts in the drywall elsewhere to make the job sustainable.

Molly bolts (aka metal toggle bolt anchors) and/or large concrete or brick screws are the only hanging devices that work for me, but they make big holes that we'll have to deal with if we move. We're renting a house that has old lath and plaster walls backed by brick and then exterior stucco. I need to believe that there are studs in there...somewhere...but I have not found them, even after borrowing a fancy stud finder. The big bolts work.

Ryan, Where did you find the headboard? Do you find that it is scratchy?

*I second art's question*
I too would love to know the story behind the giant window wall. (cost, transport, installation, things you wish you knew before you undertook the project?)

you guys did an awesome job! You both have serious vision..the before shots speak volumes! Thanks for sharing.

about orange guard: http://www.orangeguard.com/
and where to get it: http://www.orangeguard.com/buy.html

I've been using a spray bottle filled with water and quite a bit of orange, cinnamon, or peppermint oil (essential oil). Shake and squirt on all trails, points of origin and the inside of the trash can. So far, so good.

I got Desert Spice and Pop...very Gilbert & George, but not exactly a combination I see using on the walls of my own home.

I agree. While the chair is heinous the accompanying ad photo is pretty funny!

Thank you for all of your suggestions! I was beginning to think that I should have bought a few at B & Q and hauled them back to CA. I'm relieved to see that there are other options...even if it'll cost me a bit more to get them here.

Wow, gorgeous.

Does anyone recognize the sconce in the bedroom? I'd love to find a pair similar to it.

I went to the website, signed up for more info and was informed that this bed isn't available in the estati uniti, just yet. Does anyone know if a similar bed is available in The States, particularly in CA?

Yep, something in fiber/cloth (barkcloth, silkscreen, etc.) is a classic option. If you're craft inclined you could mount an installation of small found objects (like leaves, feathers small or small bits of clay) with tacks or map pins. You might consider an oil painting on stretcher bars, otherwise unframed. That said, we decided to hang nothing and instead go with a tall headboard.
