the house that jealousy built: the jealous curator.

oh boy. i’ve been so concerned with decorating the inside of this pretend house, that i’ve completely forgotten about the outside — until now! today i’m opening the front door, taking the art out for a little fresh air, and making the neighbors jealous with the house that jealousy built ~ room no.5 {i suppose the front yard doesn’t count as a ‘room’, but you know what i mean}.

seating. crucial to outdoor comfort. 1) put your toes in the green grass and relax in one of these old school lawn chairs {leah giberson}. 2) or, embrace your inner-lumberjack with this rustic, recently carved from a tree, ‘chainsaw chair’ {front design}. ah, comfy. ok, moving on to the perfect view from the front porch:

3) perhaps a magical, brightly colored, ceramic forest {amanda smith}. 4) ooh! or giant pencil crayons silhouetted by the setting sun! {jonna pohjalainen} 5) oh wait – a majestic mountain range created with cut photographs of the great outdoors {liesl pfeffer}. so many decisions! alright, while you ponder the view, i’ll start planning the décor:

6) seriously, how could i design a garden without including a diy gnome. it’s simple – i couldn’t {the gnome shack}.  7) oh dolan geiman. sigh. these pieces feel like they would only be truly happy outside — out of the rain, i promise {dolan geiman}.  8) imagine if you will, a big basket full of these painted sticks right beside the front door. love, love, love! {ginette lapalme} 9) ok, this might be overkill, but would it be so bad to redecorate the odd spider web? look, there’s even a little kit specifically for your web-reno needs! {nina katchadourian}.

and finally, most beautiful outdoor lighting ever:

10) see? so unbelievably beautiful {rune guneriussen}.

there. i feel better. hm, i wonder what the neighbors are saying? if you hear anything, let me know. alrighty, I’m heading back inside to work on room no.6. see you in two weeks!

  1. Is there anything here not to love? The light in Leah Giberson’s paintings is so perfect. And I would love to have some giant colored pencils! I can’t even look at a garden gnome without getting wanderlust, thanks to a certain tv commercial:)

  2. This is crazy amazing! I think you might need to actually build a 10-storey building to fit them all in (with a huge lawn, of course!) ;)

    Oh jealous curator, I think I am secretly in love with you (and victoria of course, but that’s a story for another day!)
