My Apartment


For years I've painted almost every wall in my apt grey.
It makes colours like pink, yellow and orange really POP.
On wall: My Penguin book cover silk screen print

I like the look of these three IKEA Ringun rugs together - juicy.

Some art on display in the stairway.
Large painting by Shannon Greene.
Illustration by Carey Sookochef
Alphabet legs and n is for novel prints by me.
ps. Yes yes I'm aware the Keep Calm poster is so "OVA!"

One of my favorite pieces: A decoupage plate by John Derian

The needlepoint shoe pillow I designed and stitched

My office
On wall: Franny goes to school and Large Red Tea pot

My map drawers (Essential for any printmaker and an unwelcome sight for any movers!):-)

Shelf from a former shoe factory purchased at Chair Table Lamp

Day bed in office to lie on when in need of inspiration
On wall: My Big orange scissors print

Vanity table in bedroom
On wall: My Room of One's own silk screen print

Designer and Style writer Arren Williams has asked me to submit some pics of my apt for his 5 Quick Questions series so this weekend I held a little photo session with my apt.

I love seeing the homes of creative people - your place is fabulous! I adore all the touches of red and orange, especially your Penguin silk screen prints.

I adore your home. I love grey walls too (am just about to paint my bedroom grey) and I have a few John Derian pieces also!

You should try sending photos to Poppytalk for their new "Home Sweet Home" House Tours! Your apartment is so cute!

Love it! I still have my 'keep calm' poster in my office. I have a new print to replace it at the ready...just been lazy getting to it.

i agree with Rambling renovators.... i especially love your office. the day bed seems perfect for "those" moments. I am in love love love with your map drawers and other vintage shoe rack (?) shelf.

i had to laugh at your comment about the "keep calm, carry on poster". even though it has become a fad i still think it's a great poster. eventually it will get tossed out, forgotten, and then found again. :)
