I know I don't do a lot of talking here on the blog but believe me I am a chatter... you might be glad when I go back to short and sweet...
I have been thinking this morning about design and how I am influenced.
There are certain designers that I love- they can almost do no wrong. But I must say that I am influenced by just about everything. Everything we see effects us in some way or another. I can always pick out what I like or don't like in a photo or a room but I don't always realize the more subtle things in everyday life that influence me.
Like light and nature that is a big one for me... I love the light in the morning as it hits the trees just outside my office window. It is soft and just that perfect color it makes the trees look fantastic.. I don't like those trees that much otherwise.
Things like that go unrealized for a long time and they effect us in how we live our lives and how we see things. Little things like that color or that feeling flow into design and help shape design decisions.
I know I am rambling - but it is Saturday and I suppose it won't hurt to say something once in a great while around here..
I am so excited for my trip.. I cannot wait to be influenced by all things France. I think that design and inspiration are growing changing thing that we just have to take a moment to see. I promise to share share as often as I can.
Have a wonderful weekend!

I wanted to share a project that I have been working on with you..
This is a fun space that is a little different and will be full of activity! I had the great opportunity to
mix in some vintage and modern pieces and cannot wait to see how it all comes out.
It is always so nice to work with wonderfully creative clients
who bring all kinds of ideas to the table!

The beautiful greige loveliness of Tine K Home...
I just adore the simple lines and the natural feeling of all of their things!
I wish this is where I was spending my day!
But alas it is Monday and I will be
taking care of business today...
What does Monday hold for you?
Do you find that some Mondays you are ready to go?
Running from task to task trying to get as much done as possible as though the rest of the week is not really going to amount to much?

Such a sweet little place for breakfast!!
We will spend today with family and friends, as well as dying our eggs!
I hope you have a wonderful day planned!
I love these moving images! So very greige!
I loved this space when I saw it on My French Country Home... So simple and clean.. I just love the clean lines the soft combination of the colors and the way that those dark chairs stand out... fantabulous!!!
And the flooring how I want that floor!
I love these right now. I cannot get enough.. I want one with a soft down cushion and lots of pillows to day dream on or read a good book!
I am so looking forward to warm sunny days with the doors open
wide and the warm air coming in..
Another cool and cloudy week here in California
