i’m jealous of mr.coupland’s house

For those of you who don’t know, I’m in the middle of decorating my very own imaginary dream house {filled with fabulous art} over on sfgirlbybay, in a series titled The House that Jealousy Built. Well, it turns out that Canadian writer & artist Douglas Coupland is doing exactly the same thing… oh, except for one tiny difference… he actually lives in his dream house {filled with fabulous art}! Giant detergent bottles, spools of coloured thread on the wall, and white Lego around the support beams. Hm… I wonder if he’s looking for a roommate? No? Oh, ok.

    i know! can you imagine actually living in there? and yes, those spools of thread are easily my favourite part of the whole house {… and the little car parked in the driveway ain’t bad either!}
