congrats mom, happy retirement! xox
i couldn’t decide on one because i loved them all, so rich picked out this one for me (helsinki) and i haven’t taken it off since i put it on before my trip to new england.
we just received a shipment of brand new blankets from avoca and they’re gorgeous!
perfect timing since it’s been pretty cold & rainy in these parts.
grab yourself some tea and a good book and wrap yourself up in some colour.
or, if you’re in a warm/sunny climate (lucky!), pack yourself a picnic.

when i was at the maison& objet show in paris i visited the rice booth and saw this cake. well, i’m not sure if it was this exact cake, but they had a cake with green coconut frosting and little gnome & mushroom candles. how cute are they?! the little candles ($8/set) have made their way to the cove along with other rice (denmark) goodies. pic from rice dk
our new website is live! i hope you guys like it! feedback is welcome & appreciated so if you notice anything weird, etc. please let me know.
you can now check-out without an account or you can set-up a new account if you’d prefer. sorry, we weren’t able to import our old website into our new website, so if you had an existing account on room6.com you’ll have to start with a fresh one.
big thanks, in no particular order to: cornelius & jeannette from matchbox creative for bringing the site to life, argie (aka miss a) for making lots and lots (and lots) of product pages and keeping me from jumping off the rock, sherri koop for trying to teach me about photography, chantal, the mayor, mags, ainsley, sherri, sylas, mike & auggie for helping out with our video, kyle bowman for making the video, andy shauf for making the pretty music we used for the video, friends and family for their well-wishes and rich for always telling me i can do anything.
yesterday was just an ordinary day in deep cove.
the mayor came into the shop. wearing a ninja umbrella.
even though it wasn’t raining.
which caused me to spit out the water in my mouth onto my keyboard.
causing the “S” key to stop working.
so anyone who received emails last night were missing the letter S.
i’ve switched the keyboards so when miss A comes back from her little road trip she will be a he.
if i sound a little punchy it’s probably due to the stress of launching a new website.
oh yes, that little thing. we’re working on it.
more tweaking and testing today & tomorrow on the new website.
we aim to take down our existing site around 5:00PM tomorrow.
it’s served me well for years and i’m sorta sad to say goodbye.
leave it to me to anthropomorphize* pixels.
but, it was time for something new.
we made a little Room6 movie which we’ll unveil on our new site.
these kids are ooozing with talent.
if you’re a record producer, sign andy.
if you’re in the movie biz, hire kyle.
i’m so lucky our paths crossed.
(thanks for the intro sk-xox)
can’t wait to show you what we made.
probably late wednesday night or sometime on thursday depending on how smoothly the launch goes.
in the meantime, here’s a sample of special things kyle and andy have created.
*this is a big word. i had to look it up.
