Waffler wrap-up and recent poll results

Posted on

Did you know that there’s a National Make Your Bed Day, at least according to this list? Actually, a kick in the pants to make the bed makes sense, given that over 55% of readers responded “not very often” and “almost never” to my query about how frequently the bed gets made.

When Holiday from Holiday House Rules asked whether or not she should return the West Elm Bull’s Eye Rug, 55% of readers encouraged her to go back to the drawing board, while 45% thought she should keep it.

And what did Holiday decide to do? Here’s her response: I kept it. It makes me smile and I have no energy (or budget) to find anything else. Personally, I’m glad — I love this rug’s color and playfulness.

In fabric news, I received lots of good feedback on which fabric to adhere to a roller shade in my newly painted laundry room. 39% voted for Marimekko’s Unikko fabric.

While I really like this pattern, I fear it might be a bit too dark so I opted for the second most popular choice — the Dandelion pattern — which received 29% of the vote. The roller blind arrived today and the fabric should be here soon. Wish me luck with the DIYing!

And finally, when I asked what your dream office would look like, “Light Filled” came in first with 31% of the vote. I find this tree house like office pretty dreamy as well, though I wonder if its’ loveliness might make it hard to get much work done in it…
