Dear Santa...

I've been such a good girl this year. I moved to Calgary away from family and friends. In the dead of winter. And smack dab in the middle of the Vancouver Winter Olympics. So much for that collective memory...

I've pulled plastic bags out of garbage cans to recycle and shooshed spiders out the door instead of squishing them. Santa - this has undoubtedly been one of my better years. Maybe even one of the best.

So in light of double gold stars for 2010, here is a few items that would make my days a little brighter:

1. KnollStudio Saarinen Womb Chair & Ottoman. In the exact colour shown below (Aubergine).
Santa, you are totally welcome to throw in that bunny soft rug i too. I would be ok with that.

2. Poufs to replace the dated leather ottoman in my living room. I'm obsessed with them and have not found one local source. Santa, you seem like a guy who knows where to get these kinds of things.
The poufs below his feet are cute.

Any of these (except the floral one) from the Mah Jong collection from Roche Bobois would bring nothing but pure joy to my life.

3. This colour in my bedroom.

4. And while you have a paintbrush in your hand, this scheme for the outside of my house.
Thank you to the kind folks at Redneck Modern for the inspiration

5. A sink for my upstairs bathroom. And not one that is rusted out, not period appropriate, or one that turns out to be a wall hung that is glued to the counter after I take it to the shop to be painted. Arrrrrrrrgggggghhhhh!

Just like this little beauty pictured here. (Courtesy Retro Renovation)

6. One of these smoke grey globe lights for my kitchen.

Interior of one of many nearly original modern interiors at the University of Calgary. This space is in the University Theatre. Tour of these buildings set for a future post.

7. This vacation.

Thank you Santa. I am looking forward to Christmas morning.

Yours truly and forever.


ps. I have a big chimney.

Hmmmm, the more I look at this pink sink above, the more I'm starting to think this too is a wall hung with a counter glued around it.

would this sink work? (might be wall hung too!)

Oh she's a beauty - thanks for sending. I think she's wall hung too... May have to take a look.
