Gorgeous Chanel bag. I'm the same way -- changing bags almost every day -- so I have bags draped on the sofa, over the end of the bed, on the dresser....

Tamarind, Evoke makes this radio in several different colors. This is just the Orla Kiely edition. You could certainly get this in a solid color (in the UK anyway).

Matteymann, those canisters can be found on eBay.

I vote for mustard or ochre.

Bepsf's point about staying true to the style of the house is a good one. At least you can paint over it if you change your mind!

Telluride Film Festival in the house! Do you guys attend as passholders? I've worked for the Festival for the past fifteen years.

We also have the Fidji. It works perfectly and is lovely to look at.

Darling, but so so wrong if done by someone with less skill. :)

I think it would be fun to try to match the responses to the pictures. All the survey answers on the left, all the pictures on the right, draw lines to connect!

Gorgeous! I especially love the light fixtures and that red bedding.

I feel like we are seeing a gradual shift away from modernism and minimalism in AT house tours lately, which is awesome. Marc's home is clean, tidy and beautiful without looking cold or alienating.

Weather is a consideration, as lmk points out, although not my #1. I live in LA, so for me, it's preferable to move in winter, which isn't cold. Summer, on the other hand, can be scorching hot, which makes for a really unpleasant move.

I agree, #3 is gingham, and I don't think it's masculine at all. Not prissy, certainly, but it feels like picnic napkins or an apron dress. Country.

I agree that the "original" isn't all that fresh. That's not to say I don't like it or think that ripping it off is acceptable, but it looks exactly like the trees-and-birds motif that's all over the place.

Doing a Google image search for "birch tree wall decals" gets ~37,500 that all look like both images above.

I disagree, fuzzy. The Surrey kitchen is quite small, but all the rest seem spacious to me, even by my American standards.

Not a stupid idea at all. The Alamo Drafthouse screens films in historic or otherwise significant locations around the world, and the screen they travel with is a blow-up screen (really big though). I can't vouch for picture quality, but I would imagine it would make for a cleaner image than a plain sheet.

I have Dansk Fjord flatware, which was reissued at some point in the last few years. Plenty of vintage Fjord trades on ebay, but for way more money than I could afford. It's not dishwasher safe, but we don't have a dishwasher, so that isn't a big problem. My boyfriend and I both love the look.

BTW, I say "silverware" for all flatware, and I grew up in Hawaii. My parents are from Colorado and Nebraska, and they also say "silverware." My boyfriend just confirmed that he grew up saying "silverware" in Massachusetts.

Beautiful new kitchen! I have the linoleum from the before pics in my rental kitchen, which I do NOT love.
