For The Dog That Chases Its Tail Will Be Dizzy

 
 
Yeah. I'm totally quoting George Clinton's Atomic Dog in the title of this post. It's fitting for the above image and because I've been feeling just like that = running and running and very busy but not really getting anywhere. It seems as though my list of "to-do's" grows longer every time I check off an item. Ever feel like that? Ahh well...
So...how did the above scene get started? I found this dog-shaped memo/photo/card-holder at CB2. When I spotted it, I immediately thought it would be cool as a statue/chair/toy in a kid's room--sort of along the lines of Eero Aarnio's Magis Puppy. The box that this item came in shows that there is a horse and bear version which I hope to obtain. OooBee Dee Do...the land of repurpose. Chuckles!

The Goods: Twin beds are brinca dada; desk is brinca dada; chair is Re-Ment; side tables are building blocks; Munny-esqe lamps are a keychain find; dog statue is a CB2 find; large art is Rex Ray; all other accessories are AG Minis, Playmobil, JUN Planning, DCWV, Lundby, Mattel and Haba.

  1. I love it! I love the assortment of items. The side tables and lamps are my favorite, perfect for a kids' room!

  2. Don't you find that a single purchase can sometimes be the inspiration for a whole scene? Are those white figures on the blocks lamps? Funky cool! I like it... a lot

    I feel your pain with the 'to do' lists, I really do =0/

  6. The "Ikea" like horse and the wall hangings are doing it for me- why do you say you don't work well with colors?

  7. Thanks Margaret!
    I have been anxious to try these "lamps" in a scene. I'm so glad you think it works here.

    I am often inspired by a single purchase or item. Recently, scrapbook paper has been my muse. Yes, the little figures are supposed to be "lamps" but they are really just keychain charms. If you lived a teeny tiny itty bitty bit closer (smiles), we could drown our 'to do' lists in a suitable beverage.

  11. Hi Hunky Dory,
    We'll see how long I can contain myself and keep from going back to my earth tones. Ha! Something tells me this experimentation will not last long. Perhaps this is an excuse to shop for new goods...

  12. Hey Neomig,
    I always use brown, neutrals, etc. Even my closet looks like someone stole all the color. Ha! Even my 1:1 dwelling is woods and more woods with linen thrown in here and there. I'm always playing it safe for the most part. Shrug. I'm glad you like the scene.

  13. This is seriously the coolest room. I'm dying to know what your real house looks like. If half as cool as this, I'm moving in. :P We just found a place in FC right on the bay. 19 years of living in CA and I finally get my beach house! Once settled I'll host a mini meetup.

    Thanks for the inspiration!!!

  14. Thanks Mini Dork!
    Congrats on the new space! My 1:1 house is BORING. We live in a 1950's/1960's development. Safe and lovely neighborhood but not the dream digs. My home is a constant work in progress on the inside. Very clean and orderly (I say!) but half decorated. We're always searching for the perfect pieces--that are also affordable. Visitors seem to think it's lovely but perhaps they are being nice... HA! AND I wish that HGTV Curb Appeal team would show up...
