Oh My! Loooove the headboard in the first pic! Deets, please?

Kimberly Julie said...

Damn, that headboard! Gots to have it.

Kwana said...

Thanks for the nice pics this morning.

Laura said...

Love when you just post pics and no commentary! So refreshing!

iona said...

If this is your house. I'm jealous. Do tell, do tell. So what does your husband do????

Sweet chandelier in the first pic, please be mine!

could you possibly put any less effort into this?

I recognize these--go Atlanta go!

I love the lamp height in the first photo and the English rolled arms on those chairs. The barndoor-as-headboard is cool as long as the board and bed are firmly attached to the wall. The sketch feels wrong.

The second photo gives off a twee vibe. Stab the designer in the eye.

I've tried the wingchair-as-office-chair idea and it doesn't work without a ton of arty pillows. Or you have to hit it ass first like you're getting into a corvette. I don't want to look at my or your thighs while working or eating, so 'no' to the desk.

I love the dual fabrics on those chairs, but hate the sound of leather cushions. The chest in back looks Eastlake and I'd love to see the granite top. The art shit is by the stabby-eyed designer from the second bedroom. She needs to stop it.

two of these were just saved to my inspiration file!

LOATHE the bedroom light fixture, but dig pretty much everything else.

Is there something that precludes you from linking sources?

Pretty soon the Haldol will kick in and the thoughts will stop racing.

Decorno said...

Some days I just want to disable comments.

Emina: laziness.

Garden lust lady: no, and I make my own money.

Anon: yes, I am pretty sure I can put less effort into it. just you wait.

HC: you're the reason I found these photos linking off your site and over to that Atlanta homes mag. Thanks, kid!

This blog with the comments disabled? Perfection.

Decorina said...

I finally settled on comment moderation just for the drooling anon trolls. If they could just exercist some self control - no, wait - that will never happen.

Andrea V. said...

Does anyone know where the gold tripod pendant in the 2nd pic is from? It looks vaguely familiar, but I can't put my finger on the resource......I would like to use it in my house :)

Good clean fun! love these images...

I have finally convinced my husband to let me add some color to our home. He bought into those years when everything was all white, white walls, white furniture, white carpets. but he never had to clean them or look at them in the daylight. Believe me you will get seriously tired of all that white. That look is for twentysomethings who cannot decide what they want, not for real grownups. Pardon my age and experience.

nkp said...

I love the bed and the bedding in the first shot. And the confident use of color throughout is refreshing. I could happily live in any of these. Wonder where they keep the extra set of keys?

nkp said...

First one, Kaye Douglass?

drollgirl said...

they are all quite pleasant.

Just a bit of levity my dear, no need to get nasty!

What does your husband do? That is so fucking offensive. So offensive, I can't even tell you.

It's official. The blog era is over.

I thought rules of comments were understood.

#1 rule of comments: don't talk about comments

#2 rule of comments: clickee on shill links

#3 rule of comments: praise your blogger - it's one of the few times you can use 'LOL', 'You owe me a keyboard', and 'I want to have your assbaby'

#4 rule of comments: stop accusing anon 9:14am of using or needing chemical therapies

#5 rule of comments: you're a guest so you have to behave yourself with the host and the other guests - esp. anon 9:14am

#6 rule of comments: stop yelling at anons for being anons. Many of us have shit sucking blogs with very little content and we don't want the shitfest known to everyone

Anonymous said...

Oh good, Kelly Bensimon is now commenting.

I tire of this snarky blog....you've lost that old feeling decorno. You know the one where one could go for inspiration, a little humor and alot of irony. This blog has turned into the school yard shit where the girls who think they are better than everyone else just stand around judging people. I get the feeling everyone just wants to impress each other with how verbally cutting a remark they can make. I think I'm done.

Anonymous said...

This if a faceless, nameless, place for most. Stupid "I quit!" or "I'm never going to read your blog again after today!" are stupid. Stupid. Read it or don't read it, no one cares if you you are picking up your dolls and going home, anons.

Anonymous said...

The beauty of an anon declaring "I quit!" is that no one can tell if he comes back 12 hours later.

Anonymous said...

Anon 10:47 is right. This has turned into a toxic place. Come on, people, Decorno herself told you that she left a post on Flint, MI up for days just to "make you suffer" and that if you don't think she can put less effort into a post, "just you wait." What is THAT about? There are a ton of great design blogs out there that don't employ bitterness as a weapon against their readers Don't you deserve better?

Anonymous said...

Oh Oprah, you've come at last to liberate us!

Anonymous said...

I have to admit, Decorno, that you have turned me onto white walls.

Anonymous said...

My thing about white walls: I worry they look better in photographs than in reality. Have put in too many years in rental apts. with walls painted chalky/dead/demoralized/inner-city-hospital white, I guess.

Anonymous said...

That's been my drawback for years, too, anon 8:43. The second photo, for example, looks great, but the room is completely bathed in light. It probably doesn't look like that in person. However, Decorno has always posted rooms with white walls and good, solid furniture, and the rooms look like they could stand the test of time and trends. I'm not sure if I'll do it for my home, but she's got me thinking about it. -Anon 8:39

ChrisToronto said...

Cat got your tongue, Decorno? I come for your voice, so this post is a let down, a pretty let down.

Anonymous said...

Pardon the stupidity but, what does "clickee on shill links" mean?

Anonymous said...

"There are a ton of great design blogs..."

Nope. Not even a pound. Not even an ounce.

E-luv said...

Here's a little something for all you caddy bloggers. How jealous are you? I spend an entire Saturday night drinking wine with THE Decorno. And yes, she's even more fabulous in person. Now get back to hating on each other.

E-luv said...

I meant "caddy commenters"

Anonymous said...

E-luv, do you mean "catty commenters" or does "caddy" mean something other than someone who tends to your golf clubs?

Anonymous said...

Please don't close down the comments function. The comments with their bitch-fest cattiness are far more interesting than your posts have been lately.I'm just sad that I don't seem to enjoy the posts as much as I used to. I'll bet you're a hoot to hang out with though.

Anonymous said...

I think the problem begins with us. I know I have become quite jaded and am always looking for prettier,lovelier, cooler, more unique and so on in the many blogs I visit.
Yes, some blogs right now seem a little lackluster at best. The economy has sucked the creative juice out of bloggers,and some are just over it. Also given the state of things there is very little "new" out there. Let's face it, the deign cycle has peaked with it's wallpaper, painted furniture, high/low mixes , chandeliers, marble and so on.
I'm bored and in a funk.

couchseattle.com said...

yeah- i agree. i like to think i'm all unique but for my new apartment I find myself wanting some lacquer, some zebra, and some imperial trellis. perhaps i'll be really adventurous and throw in some chiang mai dragon. Nobody's ever done that before! it's not just me though- even house beautiful and elle decor seem like they're running out of places to go.

E-luv said...

OK, OK, I admit it. What I meant was, I once spent a Saturday afternoon carrying Decorno's golf clubs.

Happy now, haters?

Anonymous said...

couchseattle,

You turn out to be pretty cute. What's the deal with you? Are you one of the four straight guys on the planet who knows what chiang mai dragon is, or...?

Anonymous said...

I heard Decorno was killed in a Knitty Kitty accident.

Not to get too graphic, but there were torn tights, blood spattered mini skirts, over-sized yarn needles, and officers of the court giving blow jobs for drugs involved.

couchseattle.com said...

Pretty darned straight. I just like pretty things.

Yeah, I hear that a lot from guys I meet at 2 a.m. on Craig's List.

Anonymous said...

come on decorno, where's that snarky love you used to dish out gone to? seriously, if you don't want to do this anymore (and i wouldn't blame you as you're not being paid)then close your blog down. i'm sick of checking back (don't do it as often anymore)and not getting any of that 'good old decorno'. please get some advertisers if it means we'll get great posts again.

Decorno said...

I have already indicated in a previous post that I may not be writing and posting quite as often. So no complaining.

I offer a subscription service (you can check the right side of the blog) into which you can subscribe to new posts by email. Then you won't have to check back for new posts. It's magic. You can also use Google Reader (which I posted about many months ago) where you can also subscribe. And then my infrequent posts won't be so soul crushing.

How will the few of you complaining manage when I am in Italy for a month beginning mid-July? You don't think I will be posting from my sea-view apartment there, do you? Toughen up, my little ones!

Decorno said...

And Anon... I can't believe you would suggest that because you don't know how to subscribe to my blog that *I* should just shut it down. I think that's really funny. I am sorry it's been hard for you.

Anonymous said...

i'm glad i made you laugh and i forgive you for making it hard for me by slowing down on posts.

honey, i don't have your gift of the gab and my 'comment' came out sounding like my mother in law: damn rude. the difference btwn me and her is: i didn't mean to be.

wish you all the best.

Obviously, the newer material is by an impostor.

Decorno's large-ankled sister with a 'wonderful personality' has taken over. Of course, Rigorno can't type too much - what with the fibromyalgia and all.

Decorno is probably buried under a ton of pea gravel with one small dog lackadaisically digging her out.

I'm sure that's what's happened.

love this place, I want to move in right now

How do you all feel about dark, stained woodwork? It's throughout our 1930 home...everywhere. I'd love to paint. Hubby would not.

Decs said...

I am having the same dilemma. I want to paint all of mine. I think I will.
