Corners of Our Home 9 - thursday.white

To cover both Corners and Colors, here are some white spots around our house.

thursday.white

The "bullet" planter was passed on to us by aging neighbors who no longer used it. My employer gave us the Alvar Aalto "Beehive" lamp. It illuminated the dining table in his London home for many years. But he felt he didn't have a place for it when he moved to L.A. The big bug's Miffy lamp was bought on ebay while I was pregnant with her. (Knowing whether she was a boy or a girl she would love Dick Bruna!) The large white chair is, obviously, the back of our big orange chair! The Le Klint pendant was a purchase at the yearly Artemide parking lot sale. (Great deals! Anyone know when the next one is?) And the clay "shells" that hang against the brick of our fireplace were a Mother's Day gift some moons ago - bought at Ikea.

It is fun to go to flickr and see all the wonderful colors! And of course, more corners here.
