WhenÂ I was in Zurich last year I was browsing in a store calledÂ Townhouse and saw this cute notebook. It’s one of a series of notebooks fromÂ a Swedish company calledÂ Archiegrand and here are some of the other titles:
I had seen these before but it was the first time I saw one for bloggers so of course, I just had to get one. I’ve started taping business cards of all the bloggers I’ve met in mine:
So all you bloggers out there, if we ever meet up, please bring your cards with you!
Unfortunately the bloggers one doesn’t seem to be available on the Archiegrand or Townhouse sites but if you want one, I did find them on this UK site and this Australian site. If anyone knows of any US sources, please leave them in the comments for anyone who may want one. Thanks!

I’ve been trying to muster up the courage to paint something glossy black in my house. As I was re-reading the most recent issue of Lonny, I noticed a lot of high gloss black. I tell you, LonnyÂ just brings it every single time. Here are the spaces I loved most from the April/May issue and they all feature plenty of black.
This is my favorite shot with the art wall, the brass sconce, the two-toned chair:
I think this is my favorite entryway ever:
How stunning is this? That Kelly Wearstler is just so good. So what were your favorite parts of the issue?

Last week I mentioned wanting a lightweight ladder for my dressing room and a very kind reader (thank you Brandon @ d.coop!)Â pointed me to theÂ Inreda from Ikea. It was exactly what I had in mind so I hightailed it down to Ikea the next day and voila, here it is now in my dressing room:
It’s a silver/gray which I want to zhuzh up at some point but for now it’s great just having a ladder! Thanks again, Brandon!

Yikes, is it really April already? Since that means I have exactly 2 months left to complete my scary to do list, this might be a good time to check on my progress. Here is where I am:
- Find a light once and for all.
- Reupholster brass chairs.
(Decide on fabric. The hard part.)
- Reupholster antique chairs. (Decide on colors and fabric. Again, the hard part.) I really like the pink in the photo above.
- Decide on and get window treatments.
- Find ceiling mount light for entry.
- Get drapes?
Order x-stool. Done.
- Find new shades for sconces.
- Find a towel rack.
Guest Room 1
Guest Room 2
- Reupholster Baughman chair.
(Choose fabric.) Fabric bought.
- Get shades.
- Hang art.
- Hang art.
- Finish organizing.
Um, yeah. I guess I better step things up. Between that, getting things together for my Nicholas House project and catching up on everything around here, my weekend is looking pretty full. How about you?Â Have a good one!

I don’t know why but I keep coming up with new ideas for my dressing room. To recap, it currently looks like this:
As I mentioned yesterday, I’m considering changing the wallpaper to this darker one:
Thanks for all of your feedback on it. I’m still undecided and really appreciate hearing your thoughts.
The other change I’m considering is the dresser. The white one you see is the basic Ikea Malm. I’ve always liked it for its simplicity and clean lines butÂ lately I’ve been wanting an upgrade. The other day I saw this chest:
It’s covered in grasscloth. I. Love. Grasscloth. So that made me think instead of getting a new dresser, why not try covering the Malm in grasscloth? It’sÂ the perfect size for the space (which isn’t easy to find) and isÂ in really good condition. So, if I were to change the wallpaper to the black one, I think a gray or tan on the dresser would look good:
The final thing I want to do is get some sort of ladder because I can’t reach the upper shelves. Something like this:
I’m short, too, Eva. Â I know I don’t want to hassle with installing rails. The room is broken up with a door in the middle so rails wouldn’t work anyway. Â So what I want is one that is fairly light that I can move around myself. I have no idea where to even start looking so if you have any ideas, please share!
