Awesome looking paint chip sample wall

Also from Apartment Therapy: Look at this fab wall made of paint chip samples, the kind you can pick up at Home Depot, Lowe’s, or if you’re living in a bygone era, an actual paint store.

The guy in front is the guy who made it, Los Angeles filmmaker and actor Scott Prendergast. Bravo, Scott. Cool idea!

Diane Keaton’s charming colonial home

Apartment Therapy has some pictures from inside the home of Diane Keaton, one of my favorite Hollywood actresses. Her decor, it appears, is as eccentric as she is. I love it.

Very warm. Very charming. Just like Diane. Favorite Diane Keaton moment? Argh, so hard to pick, but certainly one of them is that bit in 1973’s Sleeper when she and Woody Allen are walking down the long corridor nitpicking at each other.

How do you hang your toilet paper?

Apartment Therapy is not afraid to tackle the big stuff, so we won’t be either.

The Dancing House

I like to spend a little time each day on ApartmentTherapy.com because I like interior design, but more importantly because I’m an insatiable looky-loo and the site frequently features slideshows of people’s apartments and houses.

Sometimes the site also features architecture as was the case yesterday when an AT blogger posted this pic of “The Dancing House” in Prague, a building designed with no shortage of wit by architect Frank Gehry.

It was built between 1994-1996. “The Dancing House” is just a nickname folks in Prague gave the building. (Others call it the “Drunk House.”) It was originally christened “Fred and Ginger,” for the famous dancing duo Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers.

It’s a very controversial building. Not all Prague residents are nuts about its unorthodox design although it was fully endorsed by Vaclav Havel, the president of Czechoslovakia at the time. Then again, Havel is a pretty revolutionary guy.
