Help a Girl Out: Ohdeedoh!

May 31, 2008

Hey all, I have a favor…Remember that project I was talking about earlier in the week? Here’s the deal: I am up for a West Coast editor position with Ohdeedoh! Apartment Therapy’s super cool nursery blog. I did a nursery tour of my friend Michaela’s amazing nursery. Anyway, the finalists’ posts are up and part of our evaluation is based on comments from Ohdeedoh! readers and that could be you. So please check it out, and if you feel inclined to do so please comment; it would really help me out. No matter what happens this sweet blog will still be a priority. Thanks so much dear friends. Here is the link.

Finn Juhl

May 28, 2008

I am far from a student of design. I just know what I like. Until recently, I guess I would have considered myself drawn to more traditional pieces and would have chosen to live in a 1920’s bungalow (and actually have since we became homeowners about 8 years ago). But lately, due to a new project (more about that later) I have been loving Mid-Century pieces. I am not a full convert at this point, but would absolutely love to incorporate more of these pieces into my home.

I have been seeing images like these for quite some time and found myself going back to them over and over.

These pieces were all designed by Finn Juhl. I love them so much. I love the sleek curves and strong wood presence. I won’t pretend to know anything else. Like I said “I know what I like when I see it.” I like this. This amazing blog recently posted photos of Mr. Juhl’s home in Denmark. Take a peek…so wonderful:

I have now decided that the only thing better than Mid-Century Modern is Scandinavian Mid-Century style and the more I look at these the more I say forget a few pieces here and there, I am willing to pack up the French-mobile and move right into Finn’s home. I wonder if it is a big deal attaining citizenship in Denmark?

**We are heading off to Cannon Beach today. We will be there until Sunday. I am not sure what type of access I will have to a computer and my beloved blog; just know I am not a slacker…actually sort of a slacker but for good reason.
