I walk my dog in whatever I'm wearing at the time. The content on AT is getting pretty tenuous.

I am so tired of the expedit. i know it's functional but its ubiquity is nausea-inducing. No matter what hacks you make to one, it always looks like an expedit to me.

Fresh, gorgeous and impeccably edited. I have one question for Jason and Jon-

How is the grasscloth holding up in the bathroom? I spec'ed it for a client's powder room because of the lack of moisture but now I'm reading about how it can still get grody or ruined from being water adjacent. Any thoughts?

Wake up an hour before leaving the house, shower and stuff, walk the dog and pick up a cup of coffee, read AT and a couple of other blogs while drinking the coffee and having a smoothie or yogurt.

You don't need to take the exam to be a designer, nor do you need a 4 year school to take the exams. My mom and I started our interior design business four years ago and I went to a 2 year program at FIDM to learn the basics. I actually haven't even used most of what I was taught.
