Home tour: Ruthie and Ze’ev’s eclectic palace – Part 1

Thank goodness I live in a great neighborhood. I was supposed to take pictures of my brothers house for today’s post but it turns out that the house is filled with ticks from their dog (who is now asleep on my floor…) and it’s currently getting fumigated, so I was stuck without a Monday Home Tour! Out came the phone book and called my neighbor Ze’ev, an architect married to an amazing jewelry artist – Ruthie. I said “Ze’ev, I need your help,” and he replied “Do you want me to pick up your kids?”
Um, no. I need to take pictures of your amazing house.

They built their home about 10 years ago now, taking things, like the doors above, from old homes Ze’ev has renovated (in Israel they don’t have architectural scrap yards for some reason – they just throw everything away) and incorporating Ruthie’s pottery.

MoHen interior and lighting design

I’m going to Shanghai next week for school – and so I’m of course thinking about Chinese design. I fell into the Mohen Interior and Lighting Design site while checking out what design is like in China these days.

Like Israel, China is obsessed with uber-modern design. Up-lighting everywhere, shiny surfaces and sleek sleek sleek. And twigs on a wall – which apparently represent light and have a lot of meaning, but as I have a real thing about twigs in interior design (I really don’t like it, no reason why – it makes my skin crawl)  I’m ignoring them. They just don’t do it for me.

What do to with an orange sofa?

I love Tchochkes readers. We just got a comment in an ancient post of mine “What not to do with an orange sofa” and it was too good of a question to leave in an old post:
I just ordered a sectional orange sofa that just looks like this one (it’s actually a sleeper sofa) along with brown wood coffee table from Macy’s
