d*s reader rec extravaganza
i'm listening to lily allen and finishing up an interview with textile goddess judy ross this morning so i'm going to collect some reader recs this morning and see if anyone has some ideas for those d*s readers in need of design advice. i'll be back in an hour or so, just need to tie up loose interview ends. so, without further adieu:
- leslie needs some help with a dual religion wedding gift: "Right now I’m having a problem in the gift area. My best friend is getting married at the end of the summer; it’s a Jewish/Hindu ceremony, and I don’t want to get her something off her registry I want to get something more thoughtful and unique. I want to get a gift that combines both religions but that is not religious. I saw the Henna dessert plates on Roseanne’s site (rosanneinc.com) and I love them. But, I’m having real trouble finding something “Jewish” to coordinate with them, maybe another set of four plates, desert spoons etc. So, if you could help I would really appreciate it!"
- mk needs help with a storm door: "I am currently trying to find an attractive storm/security door for my back door, it needs to have steel metal bars so I feel safe, (my kit door is all glass) but I have yet to find something that doesn’t have a tacky 60's palm springs look, and I was wondering if you or your readers would have any advice? Also I live in a brick 1860’s townhouse, so an ultra-modern may clash…"
- robyn needs help finding some great fabric: "What are the odds that you'll know of any shop in North America that carries Form & Design's "Bloom" fabric/yardage line?(http://www.form-design.se/bloom_eng.htm) I'm trying to hunt it down but the internet seems to know nothing (!) and Form & Design have yet to reply to my request for a retailer list. I want to buy bunches and bunches of it for bedquits that I'm making, but so far, no luck!
- and last but not least, kate needs some great montreal design shop recs- any ideas?
[thanks for any suggestions guys!]
