malm | malm gray | mid-century | dark gray oak
i know he doesn’t want to spend $400 on the favorite pick so we’ll see… might have to dig out my dusty headlamp and delve deep into the digital caverns of craigslist for a suitable option.
then there’s bedding.
while i toyed with the idea of plaid or hunter green, it looked a bit too collegiate when i put together my photoshop mock-up. i love the look but this guy’s 28 and looking for something a bit more grown-up. the two styles above from crane and canopy are great – charcoal and black and white.
and this crane and canopy style is also available in a steel blue. so we’ll add it to the list.
so here’s what we’re working with in terms of the room layout.
gray gray gray
as you can see from the before photos, the carpet has seen better days, so i think we’ll cover it up. love this triangle patterned rug from my go-to resource, rugsusa.
cubby | bedding | rug | nightstand | light | clock | pennant | floating shelves | hanging bar
but we shall see! all in good time. this will be fun watching it come along… i’ll be updating on instagram also so follow there @alainakaz. and stay tuned for updates!

Today, almost five years later, I began my collection.
Thanks once again to the wonderful offerings of Joss and Main, and no, they didn’t pay me to say this, I was able to get three pieces for a fraction of the price of what Mauviel pots usually go for! I picked up a large saucepan, a medium sized stock pot (oh so pretty w/ it’s gold handles!), and a small frying pan perfect for my morning eggs (only $69 down from $210).
Check out their Go Gourmet sale currently going on for the next four days. But hurry – stuff is selling out rather quickly! Above you’ll see a few other favorites of mine, but I of course had to stop at the copper beauties (used up all of my credit in one oh-so-easy fell swoop). But the sale also has Staub and a number of amazing knife brands. Definitely worth checking out!
