Our hobby room is the one room in our house which has all of its original paneling. The mahogany makes it the perfect cozy lounging room. I’ve been adding things here and there (like the sconces we made a while back), but have yet to sort out the musical instruments and random video game system components.
In the meantime, I am loving this chrome lamp we got back in February. We drove it all the way up to San Jose from Palm Springs, in the back seat of my car.
The Laure Joliet print which reminds me of the fantastic cactarium in PS. I recently incorporated one of her photographs in my client’s home. There is a certain sense of quiet about her images even though they have quite a lot going on in terms of texture. I enjoy them immensely.
And, my new favourite things: more ceramics. That look like space aliens.
The blue vase is 1970s Italian (half-price score from Monument in San Francisco); the tall green is Jonathan Adler (last season, but I’ll call it ‘vintage’); the little green bud vase is Heath. They have a certain late sixties feel which I quite like for our laid-back lounge room. Like a lava lamp, but a heck of a lot more classy. Yes.
The paneling is gorgeous in there. And I’m loving the print, and the lamp –worth the drive!
Thanks Andy! I’m on the hunt for a nice credenza to put in there, instead of the awkward desk/cabinet that’s there now (not pictured, for obvious reasons). I think I’ll be making a trip up to San Francisco for that. 🙂
