This is going to be good: Tom Scheerer’s book

I am so excited and flattered to receive a preview copy of Tom Scheerer’s first book!  As you know from herehere, and here, I am a fan of his work.   Well those pictures don’t do it justice.  His book is long overdue – the pictures are beautiful… Not to mention the designs are stunning and truly one of a kind.  He has a style that is different from any other.  Tom, why did you wait so long for this compilation?  Here’s a little preview.  Just a few of my faves courtesy of The Vendome Press…

I love twin beds.  And I love a canopy bed.  Therefore the following picture is my heaven.  Not to mention those bedspreads with the fringe (my mom has that bedspread, thanks to moi!)!  I think Tom and I would get along just fine :)

I believe those tiles are cement tiles… Aren’t they fun?

Lime Washed Look

What do y’all think of a Lime Washed wood finish?   Also known as White Washed, Cerused, Waxed, White Leaded, etc….

The first thing that pops into my mind when I think of a Lime Washed finish are the Bungalow 5‘s chairs that are available in “Limed” and “Gray Limed Oak”… (Check out their website for more fun styles!)

But there are many more uses for a limed look.  In the right setting, it could look great on floors, cabinets, case pieces, you name it.  Now check it out…  What’s your favorite?

I like it!  I think it would look great especially in a beach house.
