I love this room by Anthony Todd. Although I think that's his naked mom in the photo, which is slightly weird.



And I am fond of those blue chairs.

That is all.

It's not like you can see her naked bits.

Yes! Yes! Yes!

Luckily, his mother was super-glamorous (like a Warhol superhero). I've seen other pics of her, blown up huge, and she looks almost mythological.

But I wouldn't have pictures of my mother in my bedroom.

Just sayin'.

Love the gold painting/pic and the white table.

The photo is of his mother and his brother back in the 1970s, sunbathing. All you see is her back anyway. If it was full-frontal, I might have an issue.

What I find weird about the photo is that a mother would sunbath nude in front of her male child. And then for said male child to display the photo in his adult bedroom. Maybe I'm just a prude.

Love the bedroom.

Don't know much about Mr. Todd, but he is a designer...probably gay? If gay, no big deal with a naked mommy pic in the room. I would equate it to having the cat watch you fuhk (the implied pussy reference unintentional). If he's straight, he's got issues.

I'm loving the fabric panels behind the headboard idea.

Nope. Orientation has nothing to do with it. I speak with first-hand knowledge.

As for the living room's "sophisticated rustic" look, I like Darryl Carter's version better:

Why are we Americans so hung up about our nakedness? In my experience, European families are much more comfortable about being naked in front of each other, which to me seems much healthier mentally.

Heee, I went to get the popcorn as soon as I saw the picture. Comments from people raised in a society where nudity is either shameful or a point-and-laugh matter in 3,..2,...1..

i only put up naked pictures of my mother in my home...


I'm totally kidding. and I love that table.

Well, the photo isn't facing the bed. It's behind a table. I have a hard time imagining him getting frisky while looking at the picture behind the lamp. But the lamp is clear....hmmm.... If I had a photo of my mother that was just as lovely, I would display it, naked or clothed.

I like the chairs, too.

Those blue chairs are so lovely.

Hey, this is my first time visiting you. You've made me realize that I wish my blog was built around the idea of posting a picture with a witty comment every day. But it works for you. And yes, I am a decor whore. In fact, I get so many damn home magazines now that my man is about to freak out. Anywho. Like your blog. I think I'll add it to my blogroll.

I'm more bothered by those hanging fabric panels than the photo of nude mom. 2nd pic is awfully nice.

I'm American and I love nude photos, especially in the bedroom or the bath.

It is the mother/son context that is slightly disturbing. Nude photos with mother and child are only charming when the child is very young. This child appears to be on the cusp of puberty, so mommy nudity at that point is just plain creepy.

But on balance, the rooms are great. I love all the white. It would be dirty as hell in my house in a matter of months. All my red wine and black coffee would ruin the look.

And semen stains, of course.

Family pictures officially live in the office or hallway. (In other words, places they are least likely to stare at me during sex.)
