Today's house started with a dollhouse fireplace that the WerePanda and I bought at Replacements during a trip through North Carolina.

And some paper samples from my endless supply.

Add some illustration, and voilà, a neoclassical mansion fit for the American Southeast.

By the way, if you like the decorative arts, you must go to Replacements to see their private collection. It is amazing.


  1. Such an inspiration you are.

    Love the brick background for your blog.

  2. **blush** Thanks, Misha.

    The background and house numbers are inspired by the city houses in Besançon, France, where I lived for a year in college. The blue and white numbers are common all over France, but the light yellow and blue-grey stone bricks are more typical of northeastern France.
