Then, I slowly weaned myself off, reminding myself that if I didn't look, I would be blissfully unaware of the everyday design steals.

  • What to do with the TV?

    Today on desire to inspire Kim did a post on what to do with a television. It got me thinking about all the interior images I've saved and if any of them might help in figuring out the best place for that necessary beast. And what did I find after looking through all of our tumblr and my personal desktop file? Only a sad few to add to desire to inspire's picks. It seems that the way to go is to either hide it completely away or choose a designated spot and just deal with the fact it's out in ...
