But now I'm back, revived, and raring to go.
First on the agenda: the Pete project.
Pete is a friend. He's also my partner Nathan's step-brother/cousin (long story). And as of June 1st, he's our new next-door neighbour. We live in an old four-plex in midtown Toronto and Pete has just occupied an apartment in our building that is the exact mirror image of our own. And he wants help with it. So help he shall get.
At the moment, Pete's place is a blank slate. He has little to no furniture, and the walls need to be painted. So we're starting from scratch. And I've been thinking and thinking about what sort of style would work and I've finally come up with an idea: modern tribal man-cave. Or something. I'm not sure what to call it.
Pete is a bit of a man's man. (And a bit of a ladies' man, but that's another story). And he will be living with another manly man. And he's a fan of travel, the rustic, global style, etc. And he seems to like vintage furniture (and probably can't afford a lot of stuff new anyway). So with all that in mind, here are some images that give off the general vibe of what I'm thinking when I say "modern tribal man-cave:"

Maybe modern tribal man-cave is a silly thing to call it. don't really know how best to describe what I'm planning, I guess. Like everything I do, it'll be sort of eclectic.
And fabulous, damnit. It'll be fabulous.
I'll keep you posted.
