Mid-Century Kid's Book: This Is the World: A Global Treasury


I've mentioned This Is London before and we still enjoy reading it, but I just found out about This Is the World: A Global Treasury. It's a collection of the This Is... books and includes excerpts from: This is New York, This is Paris, This is Greece, This is London, This is Australia, This is Texas, This is Munich, This is Rome, This is Britain, This is Hong Kong, This is Israel, This is San Francisco, This is Edinburgh, This is Venice, This is Washington D.C., and This is Ireland.

It will be the next mid-century kid's book we buy and I'd suggest it for any little traveler you know.

HGTV on Netflix (Finally)


Just in time for a weekend marathon, Netflix has added some HGTV shows to the lineup, specifically Buying and Selling, Cousins on Call, Flea Market Flip, House Hunters, House Hunters International, Income Property, Love It or List It, Property Brothers, Rehab Addict, Selling New York, and The Brian Boitono Project.

To be honest, I feel the same as Liz Lemon about House Hunters

But I am looking forward to the rest of them, and I'm really hoping that they add Holmes on Homes soon.

Another New Desk at Late Night with Seth Meyers


I've mentioned the evolving Late Night with Seth Meyers set and desk, and a reader recently pointed out that they tore the whole thing down and started from scratch. New backdrop, new desk, new chairs, new everything.


The desk is a solid modern piece with some metal flourishes and looks like a desk from a Conan set, which is a good thing. I think Conan had some of the best talk show sets out there. The guest chairs look like something out of a Pottery Barn catalog. But, Seth kept some of the mid-century look with a Eames Aluminum Group Executive chair for himself.

It looks more like classic talk show set, especially with the city skyline background. Seth actually addressed the change on the show. As much as the internet may have hated the old set (I guess I was one of the few who liked it), they can't hate on his backstage design.

Colorful Mid-Century Modern Exterior Doors


I was out for a walk in the neighborhood and crossed paths with a few colorfully painted mid-century modern doors.

I love the mint green color and unique window on this one.

And yellow really pops against a gray house.

I also love the modern address numbers in the window.

More Broyhill Sculptra to Ogle


I love seeing other people's Broyhill Sculptra setup, like this Sculptra bedroom set. The accessories on top are a great match and really bring out some fun in the set.
