Friday Snip - It's!


Some weeks are full of stuff, just stuff ... no news there!  And then some weeks are filled with the things I love ... design!  This was a pretty good one!

1.  Nothing Better than Dorothy Draper. BRASS.  BIG. HARDWARE.
2.  I picked my Montauk Daisies because of the threat of a freeze.  I killed them They lasted a day.  I guess I got to see them a little more inside?
3. A little fabric love zhushing up a PB Duvet!
4.  Custom Fortuny light.
5.  The Whole Blue and White Thang.  Thought this one was beautiful.
6.  Death Stare.  "Take us outside. NOW!"
7.  Gorgeous "fern" Stark carpet ... for a stair runner.
8.  I am still on the Chevron Bus.  Gorgeous Linens.
9.  Check Engine Light On.  Trying to Ignore it.

TGIF!  We'll be drinking wine a little earlier this weekend ... I hate the time change.

Down - Sizing ...

I hate dark paneled walls.  Period.
But I love this room.  

Why?
Let's break it down.

Amazing Art ... which gives light, life and flow.
Fantastic Chandelier.  A little Glitz for me.
Just a little bit cluttered.  You know I like some clutter.
Layered Oriental Rugs.  I think you aren't supposed to say Oriental.  But I like them.
Traditional ... another word for Classic ... Sofa.

I could drink a glass of tea in here ... or a glass of wine.  preferably, a glass of wine.  
But I'd do tea.

It has books (maybe it is a fake book table) but I like this.

There is a green plant coming out of the fireplace.  
And the blue and white bowl on the glass table.

Perfect for me.

As we "evolve" we learn more about ourselves.  I like small spaces.
I want to be cocooned when it gets dark at 4:30 in December.
I feel my cocoon beckoning me here.
What about you?  Do you like small, cozy rooms?

Serene Summer end ...

September 11 always brings emotions to the surface.  
As we approach the day thoughtfully,
Summer has come back in one last gasp.
Perhaps it's nature's way to snap us into attention.

It's going to be in the 90's here.

This image speaks to my mood.




Full of Color.
Yet Serene.
Shaded from the heat (and perhaps the world).
And the three Garden Stools as a table.  
Complete.


Enjoy your day, remember all we have to be thankful for!
