Just like everyone else, my mailbox seems to be overflowing with junk mail on most days. So when something really good does show up, it definitely stands out. A catalog from House Industries is always a welcome arrival. The latest issue is dedicated to the very awesome Neutraface Slab.
I grabbed a stack of catalogs and magazines (including this beauty) to peruse when I hit the road â€” my (very) temporary digs in Venice felt like the perfectly cozy place to play catch-up on reading material. Sidenote: I want a table like that someday!
Iâ€™ve long admired the extreme care House Industries takes when it comes to the details of their products and they put that same attention into every one of their catalogs. Theyâ€™re definite keepsakes.
The best part about House Industries catalogs? Theyâ€™re completely free! Finally, your mailbox doesnâ€™t have to be such a pit of despair.

Itâ€™s true that I was camped out in Palm Springs for a boatload of work but I was determined to get that work done as quickly as possible…because right outside my bedroom door was a glistening pool, torturing me at every side glance.
Working from sunrise to sundown, Kat, Gala and I finished our project two days ahead of schedule and I wasted no time slipping on a slightly ridiculous look to enjoy the 80 degree day (while my Portland friends texted me photos of the so-called snowpocalypse happening right outside their front doors).
Youâ€™d think that based on my ghostly pallor, I hate the sun, pool and beach but I actually love all three â€” I just rarely make it outside because my job calls for me to be chained to a computer most of the time. But when I do make it poolside, I try to live it up!
Iâ€™m all for overdressing, even when Iâ€™m perched by the pool. The best part is that a glam look doesnâ€™t need to break the bank. My swimsuit and kimono were each under 50 dollars a piece.
My poolside look consisted of an ASOS swimsuit (sadly sold out), an ASOS striped kimono (now on sale), an H&M wool hat, lucite buckle shoes from Quelques Shoes De Plus and some very fancy Cutie Dynamite sunglasses.
Palm Springs feels like a million years ago as I sit in my office in Portland, bundled up with a blanket draped over my lap, clutching a cup of piping hot coffee. Take me back!
Do you have any fun getaways planned? Where are you dreaming of going next?
