the house that jealousy built : the jealous curator.


ooh, i just had the most amazing dream! i was sleeping in a forest of wrought iron trees, green grass was growing in the place of a rug, and a pixelized wooden bird was perched on a nearby branch, whistling the pink panther theme song. hm, wait a second — that wasn’t a dream! it was the house that jealousy built – room no.3:

1) ah, the tree bed – it would be like sleeping in a fairytale {shawn lovell} 2) if you have a bed that looks like a forest, you really should have a grass ottoman {gh design} 3) ok, so it might be getting a bit too “meadow-ish” in here, but how was i supposed to choose between the ottoman and this diy knit grass rug? {craftzine.com} 4) Love, love, love this tangled-up nesty-looking pendant lamp {tom raffield}.

5) you really can’t have an outdoorsy, fairytale-esque bedroom without a bunch of birds perched on the antlers of a great big deer head {shawn smith} 6) – oh, and this sweet little colorful bird, both of which are made from many, many, many, many, many tiny wooden pixels, and a few very carefully chosen branches {also shawn smith}.

7) i love these more than i can even explain. owls, gazelles (i think those are gazelles?), and ducks all lovingly embroidered onto the magical masks of these lovely ladies {laura mckellar}.

– and for a little bedtime reading, a stack of “manipulated” books for your nightstand. 8) don’t feel like reading? no problem. just wind up your book and listen to the theme song from “the pink panther” as you settle in for the night {jennifer khoshbin} 9) now, if you have a bed with a nest built right in, you’re definitely going to need these! you may not be able to read them, but these bird book sculptures would be a stunning addition to anyone’s bed side table {su blackwell}!

well, good night. i hope you have a nice dream, and i’ll see you in two weeks with yet another room in “the house that jealousy built” xo, the jealous curator.
