Just a Few Totally Normal Pillows

I was rooming with Nole from Oh So Beautiful Paper at Alt Summit, and I was laughing as I read an email submission. I’m skimming the press release, seeing things like “premium lamb’s wool” and “broad range of textiles including velvet and linen…” and then I get to the photo. Nowhere in the copy did it mention that the pillows had drawings of boobs on them. Oh, hello!

So then Nole was telling me about a pillow she saw from an Etsy seller at the National Stationery Show that had strippers on it. She had somehow forgotten, until I pulled up the picture of them on her blog, about the penis patterned pillows alongside it. So now we’ve got ourselves a little theme here, and while not nearly as naughty, I thought the winking eye pillows I added to our bedroom recently would fit well here stylistically.

Body parts! And a bonus ‘boyfriend.’ Enjoy.

So You Need a Leather Dining Chair

Leather Dining Chairs

There’s a leather chair, with a certain shape and metal legs, that has been popping up here and there lately. Have you noticed it, too? Sort of a cushier version of Charlotte Perriand’s les arc chairs. After coming across one for the fourth time, I took it as a sign to round them up and present them to you, for you may have need of a good looking leather dining chair. I try to be helpful like that.

One (Famous) Brownstone, Two Kitchens

You probably recognize this kitchen. It was in the much-featured, much-blogged-about home of Jenna Lyons.

Jenna Lyons' Kitchen

Lyons’s New York brownstone was sold and is now owned by Tracy Martin and Vince Clarke. They hired Roman and Williams to redesign and decorate it, and here’s the kitchen now.

Tracy Martin's Kitchen

I missed the redecorated home’s feature in the New York Times when it was first published last year, but was glad to come across it recently. It’s easy for me to fall back to cute! and colorful!, but I’m so inspired by more masculine homes, and I love the vintage character brought back into this kitchen. The entire redesign is inspiring.

Which way do you prefer it? How about the home as a whole? Domain Home put together a collection of photos of the house’s two very different looks.
