Hey Birmingham, I Have A ?

Anyone have a recommendation for a furniture refinisher/painter that will pick up and deliver?  I have a good one but hauling items is becoming a problem.  E-mail me! mstronginteriors@aol.com.

Thanks!

Leather Love Continues

These have all been added to my wish list...
While I was really only looking at bags I did see this on Better Life Bags site, leather bunting.  Not sure what I would do with it but I love the idea behind it.

Well Said Mr. Boodro

"And I have heard just about every possible argument against hiring a designer-they're too expensive, or they push people into going beyond their budgets and style comfort zones. 'I don't need one,' I've been told, 'because I have a connection who can get me into designer showrooms,' as if designers were little more than personal shoppers.

None of this is true, of course.  I have had the privilege of watching designers at work, and have witnessed how much thought, expertise, hard-won experience, and sheer legwork go into the seemingly magical transformations they oversee. Even the grandest talents never lose sight of the practical-such as where to place overhead lights, or how high the light switch and the door lock should be.  It is because these myriad mundane yet crucial considerations are second nature to them that designers can make creating a successful room seem effortless." - Michael Boodro, Editor in Chief Elle Decor

I thought this was so well put; thank you Mr. Boodro for a eloquent Editor's Page in this month's issue. The rest is certainly worth reading.

On The Wish List

 Another birthday came and went this week but I could not really think of anything I particularly wanted.  Except this....
I pass three Wagoneer's every day on the way to work and I think they are starting to rub off on me.  Also, would not mind an old- circa 90's- Land Rover.  Just a thought....
