lisamfb: yes, the carpet is samples put together. Very handy for the occasional stain - they just swap out the stained piece!

FrogsPet: Joe built the bookcase on his own.

farleece: the frames were purposely left empty as decor. other areas of the home have been designed as gallery spaces for the kids' art. stay tuned for a full house tour...

theseboots: below is Linda's response to your questions:

"When people approach the benches, I offer them 2 clipboards: one has "FOR" in turquoise at the top of a lined sheet of paper and the other has "AGAINST" in red. After they write something down, then I ask them if they would like to pose for a photograph. I do all digital shots and put what they are for or against under their picture in the computer which you can see at http://www.lindahesh.com/gallery/thumbnails.php?album=8"

"I also think the color choices are interesting...."

"This is partly do to what colors were available. These benches are dipped in a thermoplastic coating. Because they are dipped and not just spray painted, the color palette is limited. The red for the against was obvious. There was no bright green available that popped as nicely as the red, so I chose turquoise."
