    I am simultaneously very jealous and very happy for you!!! The place has so much character. If my place looked like that I worry that i’d never step outside.

    Your place is simply wonderful. There are so many great things to take in from each picture. Any thought on submitting pictures to the site Apartment Therapy?

    Wow, amazing design detail. I like the way the tusk design looks both modern and inspired by the ancient.
    I’ve been really enjoying looking at all of your latest posts about the interior design project, it looks completely fantastic! The only place I can really practice interior design is my room, and I’ve now run out of space!

    It’s a vintage painting–I’m afraid I don’t know the name of the artisit.

    I love how your house reflects your style so well – highly accessorized, with metallic elements, and foreign influences. The ivory tusks are quite dramatic! – they must be vintage, no? You can’t buy new ivory, I don’t think it’s allowed…
    great post, as always :)

    Hi there,
    I normally love your blog but I’m disappointed to see the table with the faux tusk legs. Sure they are fake but I find it really distasteful. Tusks are not glamourous, they are ripped off a gorgeous animal by poachers. Imitating the trade by displaying it is quite sad. Some of the comments on here saying how dramtic and wonderful they are (even thinking they are real) is upsetting. No wonder poachers don’t stop around the world.
