The Guardian posted an article today entitled “Five Of The Best Interiors Blogs”– and guess whose blog was on that top-five list?! Well, not ours. But, the author did list Cold House Journal among five runner-up “Other homes blogs we love…”
Which is extremely complimentary, but also kind perplexing. All the other blogs in the article focus on interior design, cool and funky home furnishings, fabric, color, patterns, and in general how to make your home beautiful, appealing, and awesome-looking. Whereas our blog is about, well, how to deal with being cold in your house, and features ultra-low-fashion accessories such as yeti hats and square pieces of rock. Maybe we got some points for the custom polished copper-sheet heat shield and hand-laid travertine hearth (with matching dinner-table trivets) we built for the wood stove? (Seems like a stretch, but it’s all I got.)
Anyway, I sort of feel like we crashed a black-tie event wearing Bean boots. Sorry if we’re making a mess. Thanks for inviting us. We’ll step back outside now.
