After 8736 hours of lying around -- working very hard at not breaking anything (i.e., the baby) -- I'm terminally bored. I've already spent $39 on Kindle books (seriously Amazon, how can an ebook be more than twice as expensive as the paperback edition??? HOW?!), watched Downton Abbey 6x, and attempted to telekinetically sweep my floor, which so far has only resulted in a massive headache. Thank the stars for lovely Billie Ayers of Dessin Fournir, who came to my rescue after this post asking for info on alternate colorways for some Rose Cumming wallpaper. Not only did she create an account for me so I could feast my eyes on a bevvy of delicate shades, she also directed me to an online outlet that's carrying discontinued Rose Cumming fabrics and wallpapers.

Finally. Something important to do.

Important taffeta moire wallpaper to ogle.

Important uber trad wallpaper to contemplate... I smell a comeback.

Oh and did I mention cheap? Like $30/roll. And then there are the fabrics... all manner of velvets and damasks, chintzes and toiles, elephants and parakeets. And then there is Martine.

Oh, Martine... important unhealthy obsession. I want a pair of wingback chairs in this fabric to tone down all the chrome and brass and Italian glass I have going on. I hope the pattern is huge.

But wait! There are more important bargains to see. My favorite California boy Christian May of Maison 21 has curated a super sale selection at Joss and Main. Behold some of my faves:

Triad floor lamp.

Deco room divider.


Marilyn leather arm chair.

Grand marble obelisk.

Basically I like anything that looks like it came from Soane, but costs far, far less.

Sorry the pics are so wee -- I didn't feel like opening photoshop today. Apparently my fingers are exhausted from internet shopping and turning Kindle pages.

Now if you will excuse me, a new shipment of wallpaper samples just arrived so I must tape them all over the walls like a crazy lady.

What's new, right?
