I follow your blog, so I know this has been a labor of love for both of you. I'm glad to see it will now be recognized by so many more folks!

Nice job folks and I particularly like the way you used the two-sided set-up with the Ikea units. Putting them on legs and having no drawers on living room side causes them to be "furniture" rather than kitchen cabinets.

I am also envious you have access to a DWR outlet.

PS Why is it we modernists seem to favor orange? We also have a lot in our house, including a powder-coated orange garage door.

I don't know about why, but if any of you find some orange bed sheets, let me know.

I also want to praise you here, although I have already, on several occasions around here complemented your home. It's an excellent example of restraint. Less is more. It is truly design and not "decorating"

I just LOVE you home :) I too seem to favor orange accents.... and do have orange bed sheets (a deep orange). I found them of all places Walmart. I just use the fitted because we have a white horizontally stitched quilt and a white down comforter, so just the little orange peeks through.

Thanks everyone! We had some orange sheets once but they were more of a terra cotta orange than an orange-orange. We got them from The Company Store.

Our front door was originally going to be orange but we decided to change it up and go with the yellow. I wasn't sure at first because I'm such a orange fan but in the end I'm so glad we did it. It really stands out.

WOW! Your place is beautiful and I'm a huge fan of your decorating style and colors. I also have been catching glimpses of your progress on other sites.

We recently bought an Eichler in Santa Clara (yes, it really is an Eichler-Pomeroy West) and are in the process of filling it up with all of our mid century furniture.

Looking at your blog will hopefully keep us away from the thrift stores in the area. We tend to keep buying mid century "finds" from the local thrift stores and awesome MCM stores in SF.

Thanks for being such an inspiration!

Looks fantastic!
And yes modern types seem to prefer orange. The wife's favorite color and I use it in almost every painting I make!
Keep up the good work.
