Friday Furnishings: Under Foot

Hopefully by now you have something up on your walls, dear readers. And presumably you have a light or two hanging from the ceiling. So what does that leave? Why the floors, of course! How to remedy this… You could gain inspiration by travelling to Majik Cafe in Belgrade and see the custom designed flooring […]

Friday Furnishings: Back To School…Already

Wow, did the summer just fly by or what? Seriously, dear readers, if I were a kid, I’d be mighty upset about getting ready to head back to the classroom for another year of readin’ and writin’. But not if I knew I was going to have the coolest stuff in the classroom. Now realistically, […]

Friday Furnishings: The Great Wall

Tragically, the DCGF knows too many people who – in the abscence of knowing what to do with their blank wall space – simply do nothing. To that I say: not acceptable! Sure, there might be a question of how high to hang a certain painting, or where to place oddly shaped collectible, but really […]

Friday Furnishings: Neoprene Scene

You’ve probably seen one at Whole Foods or Best Cellars by now: those wine bottle holders that are all floppy and colorful and – what’s this? – made of neoprene? Huh. Thought that stuff was for divers and wetsuits. Well not any more, kids! Neoprene is everywhere in great design these days. It’s versatile, highly […]

Friday Furnishings: Bowled Over

Ooh – so I did it last night, dear readers. I cut my hair. Big time. Like my beloved Agyness Deyn (in all her cuteness, at right). Except mine’s a little longer and much wavier. I had to get rid of some locks that had been colored about a half dozen times. So I lopped […]

Friday Furnishings: Compliant, Not Complacent

At Goodwill, as you might guess, there are many people whose disabilities were a product of circumstance. These people had to make major adjustments in their home and work lives nearly overnight. Adding a ramp to the front steps, adapting a bathroom to accommodate a wheelchair, lowering lighting fixtures on the wall: each is but […]

I love lamp. The DCGF loves lamp, too. I mean, sure, we’d […]

Friday Furnishings: A Whiff of Whimsy

As much as the DCGF love the clean lines of a minimalist, modern interior decor, no one needs to be all serious, all the time. Any apartment or house can use a touch of whimsy in the most unexpected places. And one not need spend too much money to achieve a look that will make […]

Friday Furnishings: Declare Your Independence!

One of the best things about getting older, for the DCGF anyway, is the opportunity to have my own place and decorate it exactly the way I want. My first apartment at 19 came with three male roommates and lots of secondhand furniture. Over time, there came to be an inversely proportionate ratio of roommates […]

Friday Furnishings: I’m Such A Fan!

I asked, dear readers, and you responded. You told me that you want Friday Furnishings to focus on sustainable living in small spaces and on a small budget. Perfect! That’s what the DCGF knows best. But we’ll still have to dream big, right? Of course… It’s been super fantastically hot in D.C. lately. Like, melt-your-ice-cream-on-the-way-home-from-the-market-one-block-away […]
