From the files Friday started when I bought a new computer that came with a little widget to the right of my screen that searches for any image on the hard drive and displays it in a slideshow. Every so often it unearths an image that has been burried so deep in my file system for so many years that I forgot it existed, so I’ve decided to post one or more of these every Friday.
These images were taken July 29, 2004, shortly after we moved to Fort Lauderdale from NYC.
Wow, it’s interesting to see how much my design style has changed! Clearly I had been watching waaaay too much Queer Eye for the Straight Guy. Look at the orange canvas “wall art”. Thom Felecia would be proud. But now it makes me want to puke. Orange puke:
We still have the same sofa, but the rug and leather ottoman are currently on our porch.
The “Tod Oldham for Lay Z Boy” armchair was also relegated to the porch until recently when my growing size necessitated that we could no longer comfortably share the couch so we moved it into the living room. The horizontal Ikea Billy Bookcase is now being used as shelving in the basement.
The Dining Nook. We still have the same dining room table and chairs, as well as the fabulous Justink 7B painting.
It’s funny how literal my design interpretation seems to be. I thought “Florida” and went all mango colored. Then when we bought our house which was built in the 20’s I wanted everything antique and shabby chic!
Ah well, at least a FEW of the things we bought made the transition OK, thank god for the neutral couch ;)
