"use blue, so my eyes will pop"


"don't you think blue, so my golden brown eyes and fur will pop?" exclaimed teddy ever so helpfully, as he threw himself down on a contract grade carpet sample book...

the exposure in m21's boudoir is exactly the same as the room where the carpet will be installed, so m21 and his project collaborator, rudy calvero, plopped the sample book on m21's bed to take a look, and ted, seeing two people who could potentially be petting him, took the opportunity to hop up, and throw himself into the mix (the contract grade carpet is for a residential, not commericial project- a cost-cutting measure so we can use more luxurious area rugs elsewhere. no point spending money where you don't need to, and as a bonus, the contract carpet will be impervious to wear and tear).

*speaking of impervious, m21 always feels the need to add a disclaimer whenever we show pictures of the kids lounging on the cheapass zebra blanket we throw over our bed, which totally looks straight out of a tienda in east l.a. ;-) but i'm telling you, that 30 dollar 100% acrylic blankie is the best investment ever- it can take whatever stains the animals adorn it with (um, icky, m21- TMI!), and can also be thrown in the washing machine more then once a day, if need be- and it has been, trust me...

I'm thinking Monsieur Teddy should author his own interior design blog - "Teddy the Tastemaker."

With all due respect to Mayer Rus.

Oh my gosh, Teddy is darling. I'm in love with the dog, but the carpet will look great too!
