Loft Living

Master bedroom update:  it's movin' along

The master bedroom, or as we like to call it, the studio loft, is now looking much more habitable.  Just a few short months ago, this was nothing but a storage space crammed floor-to-ceiling with jumbles of MCM junk. 

It still requires some finishing touches like drywall repair, paint, some electrical wiring, and general decorating, but I like the way is coming together.  That's quite a result for a room that's just full of all the leftover furniture that didn't make the cut for downstairs.  A dining table in the bedroom?  It's the next hot trend!

Hungry, Hungry

 Remember when I said that I wasn't going to go down the Googie / kitch rabbit hole after those Naugas?

I lied.

I was browsing Ebay last week and suddenly this ceramic hippopotamus was all up in my purchase history.

You are Nauganna believe this

I try to keep the place grown-up and understated.  I really do, but the temptation to buy something totally Googie and over-the-top is ever-present for us Mid-Century Modern collectors.

Not only did I have a break down, I dove right in for a double-fisted helping of pure kitch.
