The Wilson house was on a MAK tour several years ago, then owned by a couple with small children. They used thick pieces of plexiglass mounted with U bolts to make the minimal stair and balcony railings safe for children. I liked It because it was so reversible. The house is also used in a Hulu seri...

As my artist friend used to say, there are all kinds of whites.
In this case that was what I was suggesting, making the white less harsh.
Plain white suggests a house in Dwell.

Third party hosting is pretty normal for sites like this. Photo hosting sites have made it very difficult to embed links now. (Although modmom does seem to be able to make photobucket work) You used to be able to find the url of a photo you uploaded to a hosting site and just place it between the Im...

I still think Woody Allen's Interiors is one of the best movies ever made.
Ironic that Ronan Farrow (obviously actually Frank Sinatra's son) broke this whole thing.

It appears that they use the E14 Euro base so at most you are saying buy a E14 base bulb for 120V? Ward Just google E14 base bulb and many 120v options are available. This Led filament style lamp would be a good choice in my opinion. At 200 lumens it would not be very bright (like a 20watt incandes...

As long as the socket is a standard size, rewiring is not necessary. A regular standard base lamp is called E26. The lamps come in 120 & 220 volt.

"one of the requirements, it seems, to becoming wealthy in this country is to be without taste"
