Remember the 70′s sitcom The Jeffersons and the theme song that went with it? Do you have the tune in your head? Here, I’ll help:
–Well we’re movin’ on up, to the east side. To a deluxe apartment in the sky. Movin’ on up, to the east side. We finally got a piece of the pie.–
I write (and sing) this blog post because the fish in this hanging fishbowl by Opulent Items is just like George Jefferson. He (or she) has hit it big and is “movin’ on up.” Any fish that gets to live in this bowl has done well for itself and is flying high, er, “swimming” high.
I just realized the next lyric in the theme song is: –Fish don’t fry in the kitchen…– Hmmm. Let’s all give that one some thought.
Today we’re celebrating the 107th birthday anniversary of American writer and cartoonist Theodor Seuss Geisel, best known to children and adults around the world as Dr. Seuss. I’m sure everyone has read at least one Dr. Seuss masterpiece. My personal favorite is Green Eggs and Ham. Not only is making green eggs and ham (with an overabundance of green food coloring) one of my fondest memories from kindergarten, but it’s also the first book I ever read on my own as a child. Now all grown up and working in the world of design, I find that I’ll come across a space and do a double take…thinking, am I the only one who sees a touch of Dr. Seuss in that room? Is it some kind of childhood reading flashback based on the mesmerizing images in his work? Look back and forth really fast between these book covers and room pics, and tell me if you see it, too!
The crisp, white countertops and cabinetry set against a bold red backdrop hint to that infamous cat and his iconic hat. Although straight-lined and modern, this kitchen’s use of color is definitely vibrant and playful. HGTV Designers’ Portfolio, by Andreas Charalambous
