A Little Art Lesson

Even the most design-challenged among us (ahem, me) knows that one of the easiest ways to change the look of a room is by changing what’s on your walls. A coat of paint, some new art, and suddenly your whole room lookWORK FROM NO HOME s new again. Of course, for something really special, …

Buying Alpaca: A Buying Guide For Vegetarians

Social and environmental responsibility are intrinsic to the mission of Object Mythology. We don’t claim to be perfect by any means, but OM makes a concerted effort to do some good in the world with each and every transaction. We upcycle found objects and put them back out into the marketplace rather than taxing finite […]

Fab Furnishings From La Feria!

Whoever "they" are, they just don't make things like this anymore.

If you follow the OM blog (and you should), you know by now that I am no decorator.

We’ve seen nearly every major furniture manufacturer pushing some sort of retro design, whether it’s a laminate and vinyl kitchen table and chairs or a 60s-inspired, low-backed living room sofa. Personally, I have some really fond memories […]

Flea Market Finds For Fabulous Furnishings

I have this fantastic girlfriend I sort of hate. Ok, “hate” is too strong a word. Maybe it’s more like, “I love you, but you’re so darn crafty I can’t help wanting to emulate you but I never quite come anywhere close to succeeding.” Sort of how my mom feels about Martha Stewart but without […]

What is Alpaca Fiber?

Not that long ago, I honestly didn’t know anything about baby alpaca fiber, nor did I know what the big fuss was about these little funky animals that look like mini llamas in sheep’s clothing.  So, it stands to reason there are a few of you out there who are new to alpaca fiber and […]

If Walls Could Talk, This Is What They’d Ask For

If the walls in my house could talk, they’d probably ask for a decorator. Pronto. I freely admit to decorating my own home…and to that being a constantly changing project with a steep learning curve. I like to think of it as an organic process – that the house is an entity that reflects my […]
