I am so happy I finally found a copy of the top picture that actually had a source and description. So many times I blog pictures that I cant explain where they came from... I try and go back and re-source when I do find out. This is one of the pictures I have had a crush on for sometime....

So I wasn't surprised to find the whole house was as captivating as the original 'Opium Den'. The Austin Texas home was designed by American architect Charles W Moore. This property was one the architect  built for himself, centered around a swimming pool it features a library, folk art collection and his 'glorious Opium Den'....

Have you seen a book called Shelter? I'm pretty sure you've posted pics from it. You probably do know it but thought I'd mention it.

I guess my dream house will remain a dream. I don't mind as long as I have my dream family at home. Interior design ideas
