The Way We Live Now

It’s strange to open a national magazine and see your living room. Ours was featured in this month’s “House Beautiful” along with eight other bloggers’ rooms. It’s just a corner and next to the others featured, it’s the least put together. But it’s our corner. Here’s the other side of the room as unprofessionally photographed by me.

Many thanks to Shax Riegler and House Beautiful for asking me. And if you really want to be wowed, check out the other living rooms… inspirational.

  1. Congrats! What a thrill. I’m sure that your room will provide inspiration to many new readers, just as you regularly do here.

  2. Thank you all. Yes, it is thrilling. I resisted the impulse to buy out the Barnes and Noble supply. Only because the rest of the world must see the others featured.

    Fairfax, one good turn… you’re more than welcome.

  3. Mr. E, Your living room is lovely and handsome and looks great amidst the diverse styles in the column this month. I’m so glad/grateful that you participated. Sending warm wishes for all good things in 2009. And again, thank you. All best, Shax

  4. Pamela, thanks! Mrs. E. was the inspiration. She wanted to decorate like her favourite Parisian bar circa 1985. I was all for it.

    Mr. Riegler, it was a treat. You made it easy! Thank you for the opportunity. And, please, call me Chris. After the way I rambled, you know me better than most. Looking forward to your next venture.
