Such a great way to make large scale pieces, and I second the Society6 idea!

This depends so much on your cooking style. I try to cook in large batches...both for dinners during the week, and for our lunches (to avoid buying at work!) and as a result both my friend and freezer are usually packed (and I am a city dweller.) So for me, a large fridge and freezer are important. If you are more apt to shop and cook often, then a smaller fridge will be for you. Perhaps something in the middle is best?

Personally, I'd hate to have a Euro style fridge. It would kill me!

This is and other recent tours are really stunning, but it does make me long for Small Cool to be all year long. Beautiful nonetheless, but some more down to earth tours (not just House Calls) would be nice, too, guys!

I always stack the newly washed dishes at the bottom, and rotate my glasses. It's especially noticeable without a dishwasher since you have to wash things much more frequently than if you could just put them in the dishwasher till it fills up.

Makes me homesick, too :). I lived in several 2 and 3 families in Cambridge and Somerville. I miss those a lot here in Philly.

Wow! I am really in love with the use of fun color and pattern here, and I am so happy you've used it in permanent ways with the tiles. Americans are so stuck on making everything beige and friendly to the next buyer. But as a renter often stuck with no option to paint walls, your use of pattern and color in textile is fun and inspirational!

Mine was an ingredient...I absolutely love Worcestershire sauce as an addition to so many things, but for the past year I've been dating a vegetarian. A Chinese recipe I was making called for Chinese Black Vinegar...turns out that it tastes almost exactly the same as Worcestershire sauce, and it's fish free! My recipes are saved.

We've had our Bialetti moka for several months now, and while there is some discoloring in the metal base portion from the heating and water, I haven't seen anything greenish. Overall, it still looks mostly new. I will say, however, that although the geometric shape is nice to look at, I HATE cleaning in all the little corners!

I know you said you wanted to do something different, but I think if you could find salvaged tile in a similar style to what is in other parts of your house, it would be lovely!

I love the way you've mixed old and new in this space! However, the fan collecting thing? I hope those are actually used throughout the house in warmer months!
