Wonderful Place! I have the same mio culture wall tiles like the ones you have by the door, except in brown cardboard. What kind of paint did you use to color them? They look great!

Hey, I happen to like the museum row of chairs! To each his or her own.

Yes that was me running down the street with my friend Tara dub c. The couch looks nice in your place. I have the same one in gray. Cool fixies too. I race bikes from time to time so I have the geared varieties...

Hope the roof doesn't leak in your place! I'm not entering the contest because I have a right old water stain upstairs! Good luck in the contest!

Glad I'm not the only one in Latham Park with a sense of good style and taste. Nicely done! We are lucky to have Mark / Area in Greensboro.

Perfect in every way! This would be my dream home too, right down to the chickens. I'm glad to see that others in this post feel the same way too. Seems like many folks these days at AT are tired of, or dislike mid-century modern. To me, it is the paramount of modern design - timeless. Congratulation on such a wonderful place! If it were mine I would never leave the house.

Love your space! Good blend of mid-century and new modern furniture.

I don't understand what some people at AT have against mid-century modern classics. It is hard for me these days to see a new modern piece of furniture, for example a chair, and not see a classic from which it came. Or where an idea came from. That is what I love about the classics!

Definitely not trying too hard at all.

Thank you sarita76! The chair is indeed wool, and it is an original Arne Jacobsen egg chair and ottoman. Having 3 fat cats myself, it has been quite a challenge to keep them off of it. I have tried covering the char seat with aluminum foil, and using a pet deterrent called a "snappy trainer". I think I'll just end up using a sheet to cover it when it's not in use. The brown does not show pet hair or dirt very much, but if you were to price one of these egg chairs out you would see why I don't want my critters all over it. (The couch can be their domain.)
