All the work I have been doing lately has got me thinking...I need a new work space!

Here is what I wish my work space looked like...

Life has been crazy!

I can't believe it has been 2 weeks since my last post! I appologize for my recent tardiness! While I expect my life to continue to be crazy for awhile, I am going to aim to write at least two posts a week until I can get back to writing daily...

Beautiful, Slightly Unusual Fabrics

I came across this beautiful fabric manufacturer today while searching for some fabrics for one of my clients. They have such beautiful fabrics. I love how they use a familar pattern and then add something unexpected to make it a bit unusual. If you are not familar I definitely recommend checking out the website Timorous Beasties.

Love, love, love this simple idea for adding color to a room.

I absolutely adore this! Not only are the colors great, but I love the concept. Using framed wallpaper as art in a room. I have a roll of wallpaper under my desk that I have been wanting to use for something. I think this might end up being my next diy project. I will let you know how it turns out!

Great office interior!

I came across this office design today. It was designed by 1001 Architects. Very cool design concepts were used in this space! I especially love the pendant fixtures below & the purple lighting used in the stairway!
