The Miller House

Happy mid-May to you! Time is flying and I've not been here much. But I saw The Miller House on The North Elevation today and I had to post about it too. The Indianapolis Museum of Art has just opened it to the public. This is a must-see for me...Designed in the early 1950s for J. Irwin Miller in an amazing collaboration by Eero Saarinen, Alexander Girard and Dan Kiley, it is a modernist masterpiece. I, for one, am thankful to the Miller family and the Indianapolis Museum of Art for letting us in. Do go visit The North Elevation, The Indianapolis Museum of Art and Dwell for more.

Wright Scandinavian Design

Happy Monday! I hope it was a beautiful Spring weekend for you. I'm excited to be starting this week, and I can't believe we're moving into the middle of May already. Where is the time going?! My Mother's Day was lovely and quiet. If you celebrated, I hope yours was happy, too.
Wright will have its next Scandinavian Design Auction this Thursday the 12th. It was hard to choose, but here are my favorites...

They are, from the top: a pair of Hans Wegner folding chairs, a (beautiful!) Ingrid Dessau hand-woven wool rug, a Piet Hein Ursa Major Candelabra, a pair of Preben Fabricius and Jorgen Kastholm Bird chairs, an Astrid Fog necklace by Georg Jensen, a set of Erik Buck stools, and a Poul Henningsen 3/2 floor lamp. See all of them and more at Wright. And have a good day!

Happy Friday

I hope you have a lovely weekend and, if I'm not back before Sunday, a happy Mother's Day!I love this home and this photo, particularly the seating area on the right side. I mostly love that fun piece of art on the wall and the cushions on the chair. Such a happy spot! From Bo Bedre via Emma.

Marimekko from Terhi

I received such a nice gift in the mail the other day from Terhi in Finland. I won her giveaway of these happy Marimekko cards...I love Marimekko, and I've been studying these bold, colorful, uplifting designs for the past 48 hours! Thank you so much Terhi!
