• Fired Earth vs London Underground

    September 18th 2013 katie

    I’m loving this new Underground 150 collection from Fired Earth, a collaboration to celebrate the 150th anniversary of the Tube. The Edwardian range, based on original early 20th century tile molds. These Landmark tiles are also reproduced from original molds from 1939.

    May 19th 2013 katie

    Well we had a pretty intense weekend with a very long to-do list of house tasks: mostly involving cleaning, removing and assembling stuff.

Worked out pretty well though since it seemed to be all of the coolest stuff, housed in an awesome old sorting office warehouse. Fernandez & Wells popup…

  • New bathroom

    June 16th 2012 katie

    Our new new bathroom is done! This is kind of the second renovation that this tiny room has seen. Here’s the very-before, during, and before: We redid the room in a bit of a rush when we first moved in because it was so grim, and I still like the simple modern suite, slate floor…
