Yesterday at the end a particularly stressful day, I zoned out taking pictures of my Begonias and the Propagation Project. Who likes drinking out of stemless wine glasses, anyway? Happy weekend!

UPDATE 5/27/12: Subject revealed! This is at the home of Shantell Martin, whose room I wrote about in a cover story for the Home section of The New York Times.

If you're in New York, stop by Sight Unseen's Shape Shop at Creatures of Comfort. On display in the gallery through May 6 is "geometry-obsessed work of 30 designers who hail from Los Angeles to London." Be there or be square.
In this post, I fondly recall a starry night where I was well-fed with lovely company at the home of photographer Sean Michael Beolchini. Giant gooseneck lamps were swiped from a boulevard; crates served as side tables; cords snaked around potted plants; there were a lot of sneakers.

Catherine's colorful kitchen is one of my favorites: yellow countertops; a red bucket for cleaning; bird cages on the bookshelf and the stovetop; a cheery bird hanging from a spring in front of the window. Sort of in use and sort of in place is sort of artistic and maybe attainable.

I keep forgetting to ask: Are you suddenly getting emails from Homebodies that you didn't subscribe to? Please let me know. I added a "Follow by Email" option on the right column, and I'm noticing spikes in traffic once a day, presumably when the email is sent out, but it's such a new feature that I'd be surprised if that many people have already signed up. I'm trying to figure out if Blogger (owned by Google) uses the Gmail addresses of people who follow via other means...? Anyway, please leave a comment below if you suddenly started receiving emails, because I'd like to fix it. Don't be shy.
I'm heading to the NYPL now and am looking forward to a busy week: a slew of design-related assignments, a visit tomorrow morning for Homebodies, a friend in town who's playing guitar with the lovely Rachael Yamagata. I guess it's windy today? The Weather Channel has a rather childlike depiction of the day's conditions. Happy Monday!
