MasterChef Oven Collection from Miele

MasterChef Oven Collection from Miele

I wouldn’t let the simplicity of this wall oven fool you – they didn’t name it MasterChef for nothing.  Miele maintains their reputation for wonderfully designed products, both their built-ins and their stand alone products.  When I grow up, I’m getting their built-in coffee maker, that’s for sure.  Though if this product came my way, I wouldn’t refuse it either.

Renaissance from Francois & Co.

Renaissance from Francois & Co.

And now for something completely different!  Yesterday we were holding on to our summertime feelings with Maine Cottage furniture.  Today, we will bring you to another time and place completely!  Try this room on for size.  French?  Yes.  Commanding?  Very.  Are you feeling like you need a nice hot toddy (oh, that would be English I suppose)? Probably.  Would you make me one too please? Thank you.

If you live in New England, you tend to want to hold on to summer as long as possible.  All of the furniture from Maine Cottage seems to evoke that summertime feeling, which just makes us happy.

Sideboard by Luis Pons

Sideboard by Luis Pons

To appreciate Luis Pons’ furniture designs, you have to understand that he applies bands of ready-made picture frame moldings to original 1950′s furniture.  It’s a very specific aesthetic – and we think it’s pretty cool.

Is there anyone out there who feels as though they have enough closet space?  Or that their closets are designed to utilize the space as well as possible?  If so, I’d like to meet that person.  Me?  I dream of having more closet space.  Isn’t that what people mean when they say, “dream big?”
