We’re three magazine editors with—depending on the diagnosing psychologist—a mild-to-severe obsession with all things home design. Our limited budgets are the only barrier to a full-blown compulsion. The prescription? A site that lets us catalog our fixations, in the hopes that we can help the countless others that share this affliction.

picture-9-polaOriginally from Seattle, Allie’s tastes lean casual West-Coast, but you’ll find her eying everything from a Chesterfield sofa to a Saarinen Tulip armchair. She dreams of owning both some day…

If Allie’s a schizophrenic, then Moe’s a commitment-phobe: a lover ofcolor, pattern, and outré objets who paints her walls white and keeps her furnishings neutral. Maybe it’s because this military brat has never slept in the same bedroom for more than three years?

Influenced equally by her bohemian aunt and uncle’s lower east side apartment, and her mom’s modern-eclectic tastes, Laur prefers interiors that contain at least one of the following: wallpaper, an Eames rocker, a Madeline Weinrib rug, or… anything berry colored.
