In the market for a new mattress: Requesting info on the classic Bergad Isoform Mattress. at Ask Metafilter. I want to know more about the Sonno mattress that Design Within Reach sells. I can only find positive reviews and I’m the type that needs to know the bad stuff as well.

I like the way this Martha Stewart Paints example room shown at Happy Mundane is decorated, and I wonder if it would make our small bedroom feel larger.

    Hey there–

    I know this is incredibly off-topic, but I thought you’d want to know. I was skimming through the chefmate wares on “just in case” and noticed the low-star review for the griddle. A quick click and I’m reading about people who’ve had their Chefmate cast iron suddenly split on them. It’s not the dutch oven, but it’s possible that they were similarly manufactured. You can check this out at
    (sorry about the lack of tinyurl, but I never trust those things when I’m expected to click on them)

    About the flooring: When we learned that tile would be prohibitively expensive, we looked at vinyl and were also upset by how much it tries to look like something else (stone, brick, wood — you name it, anything but vinyl). I mean, what’s wrong with vinyl, and why not exploit its malleablility in other ways? As I love old linoleum (have you seen the tables at Carmelita in Greenwood?), we looked into Marmoleum, a natural linoleum. We’re super happy with it — easy to sweep (unlike tile), comfortable underfoot, dog likes it, and very pretty.
