one of my all time faves…bell bottom blues from clapton (of derek and the dominoes). great analogy for fading love.
takes me way, way back…

i know, i know.
you’ve already heard, seen, bought the book, right? old news?
well, when it launched in september- there was surely no need for me to trumpet my own praise. there was so much of it flowing around at the time. why be yesterday’s news?
…because it’s a fun book?
…a book from the folks responsible for one of my favorite blogs?
…a great hands-on home and design resource in it’s own right?
….foreword by everyone’s favorite actress, julianne moore?
yes, yes- all of the above.
however, fast forward to now- a good 1/2 year past the launch and the book still sits in my living room- not gathering dust, but gathering fingerprints and a bent spine from lots of evenings taking short glances at what has become for me- a book with too much to take in all at once.
i’ve been enjoying all of the layers and layers that, at first glance, seemed almost uneventful in a book about design. but that’s actually the deceptive nature of remodelista, in general. because all of their info (and there’s a lot of it) comes through the details. god bless, the details!
we were more than delighted when we discovered that right there amongst all the details, clé was included as a remodelista favorite tile resource. great to be with such great company- big thanks!!
so, if you haven’t gone out to get your own copy. you really must. if you’re remodeling, redecorating, buying a new bed or just wanting to put your feet up and look at pretty pictures. it’s time to pick up your own volume.
and speaking of volumes…not that i’m close to getting through the first one, but i’m kinda wondering when volume II might be in the works?? i’m ready to sign up!
gray, not so much somber, as it is classic …
