I think I'm into mannequins as interior sculpture. My mother informs me that this is a fad from the 60's... but I really like it. Do you like it or does it creep you out?

Barn Meets Industrial Chic

I'm a sucker for doors on railed track systems. This barn door in particular has caught my eye! I love the yellow-green color. It's a vibrant contrast to the grey wall (in the next room), the white walls, and warm wooden floors. I also love the metal hardware- just a tinge of industrialism.

It reminds me of this lovely image- I've blogged it before and can never remember where I originally got it. It's been posted and reposted and passed around the blogosphere, it's so great!

Another example of sliding door.... not a barn door, but maybe better. Feels a little more modern.
