For Krzys and Heidi

Okay, so I'm kinda winging it here since my uncle's taste is notoriously avante garde and the last comment I made to my cousin about wedding dresses was a little unorthodox, but despite all that, I'm going to go ahead and give it the good ol' college try. And instead of trying to explain WHY I thought something might appeal to either K or H, I'm just so not going to go there. Justification be damned. Alrighty then. If you're still there, good on you!

As I was saying...
I love this Amsterdam house featured in the June issue of Dwell. It is comprised of the very top three stories.

I love the way they blend steel and teak in the kitchen and round off the edge. I even love that they showed either great restraint (or dullness) in choosing a WHITE smeg fridge. Since Smeg comes in a 1001 colors.

I love that their 2nd floor is basically a catwalk around a giant atrium.

I love the huge exposed beams.

I love the shape and size of the windows.

I love the chairs - how the different colors go together - and the random two-seater.

Frida Wedding Gowns. Who thinks Frida Kahlo when doing a wedding gown shoot? A genius, that's who.

Shoot entitled "An English Rose." I know I said all that about justifying why I'm posting, but in the spirit of overstating the obvious, we have some "English Roses" among us...

Ever wonder what a Venetian Palazzo might look like?
Perhaps similar to Ca Maria Adele, a posh Venetian hotel.
